The new design also integrates large and immersive ads effectively, modernizing the canvas for digital advertising.

I'll share stories from my years of leading product development — both successful and not — to show that investing in culture might be the best competitive edge you can gain.

Productive Life

With ever-increasing demands on our attention, how do we focus on what's really important in our lives? Matthew Crawford, acclaimed author of The Case for Working with Your Hands, argues that our current crisis of attention, dissatisfaction with ourselves and alienation from other people, is the result of long-held assumptions in Western culture that are profoundly at odds with human nature. In order to flourish, we need to establish meaningful connections with the world, the people around us and the historical moment we live in. What is needed is an ‘ethics of attention for our time’, grounded in a realistic account of the mind and a critical gaze at modern culture.
