We are live at Midwest Dreamin’. We want to thank Corinne Melchior for being our intern and holding our lovely “Appluse,” “Laugh,” and “Groan” signs.
Thank you to everyone else who came to listen to Mark Ross, Peter Coffee and I have an interesting conversation. At the very end, we made sure to have on the record, that Mark is embarrassing.
We start with a tasteless joke of brexit and freeing up data storage.
Interview: Elysium Avoidance with Peter Coffee
We have a very special guest today, Peter Coffee, the VP for Strategic Research at Salesforce. We had a great conversation on multiple topics including the impact of Pokemon Go, the future of our workforce, the possibility of robots taking over our jobs and the consequences of this happening. More importantly, we talk about alternatives to a whole automatic workforce.
