EP 06 - Urs Gubser - Entrepreneur and Futurist - What If We Run Out of Floppy Disks?
The Wolfcast was joined by Urs Gubser, an entrepreneur, technology enthusiast, and futurist based in Zurich, Switzerland. Urs is a self-described ‘classic nerd’ who started programming when he was 12 years old. He and I had crossed paths for almost 20 years before finally meeting each other through our work in the startup world.
Some of the topics that Urs and I discussed included:
- His work at UBS on the Next Step platform and meeting Steve Jobs
- The consumerization of technology and the resulting Digital Divide
- The accelerating complexity of technology and software and its implications
- The benefits and drawbacks of automation
- Internet outages and system dependencies
- Our shared experiences of working at global investment banks
This is a Bernoulli Box.
