Related Talks – Tummelvision Tummelvision is a weekly salon-style podcast on how to live in a networked world. Tue, 05 Sep 2017 18:05:42 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Tummelvision is a weekly live podcast that explores the human side of technology - people before data. A Tummler is a Yiddish word used to describe a person who catalyzes others to action. Tummlers were traditionally hired at Jewish weddings and in the Borscht belt to warm up the crowd and get the party started. <br /> <br /> Each week Heather, Deb and Kevin engage with well-known guests from the arts, business, and technology who all share a unique focus on the importance of bringing our more human selves with us both online and offline. Guests are all experts in the art and science of engaging and collaborating a networked world. Topics range from "does google get social" to what is the role of empathy and emotion in business and how do we genuinely connect in a connected world.<br /> Heather Gold, Kevin Marks, & Deborah Schultz Heather Gold, Kevin Marks, & Deborah Schultz (Heather Gold, Kevin Marks, & Deborah Schultz) The art of social in business, culture and tech Related Talks – Tummelvision TummelVision at SXSW Thu, 10 Mar 2011 10:46:00 +0000 All of the TummelVision hosts, and many of the guests, will be spending the next week or so in Austin, Texas for South by South West (SXSW).

For me, the point of 20,000 web geeks squishing into a few blocks of downtown Austin for a week is to hugely increase the chances of having interesting conversations with old friends, and making new ones.

It’s the Peer Group and a Stiff Drink principle made manifest. If you want to understand it, read Laura Fitton‘s excellent introduction post.

If you want to find us, here are our speaking sessions (and those of our guests), and the one’s they’re attending or tracking.

As Laura says, keep your eyes open as we’ll be around plenty of other places too.

Dan Pink/RSA: why and when $ doesn’t get results (aka being human for white guys) Tue, 24 Aug 2010 17:10:17 +0000

Dan Pink‘s talk animated by RSA (who doesn’t seem to give the illustrator’s name, sorry). This is an evidence research-based translation of some of the basic premises we focus on in TummelVision: that we are motivated *by each other.* That we are not algorithms. The autonomy and mastery that Dan Pink is talking about, in my opinion, is what let’s someone know they are there and not merely a substitutie for a machine. Independence lets you feel choice and mastery gives you feedback and a sense of competence. But the best use of all these skills, the underlying motivator of why they are so rewarding is because they allow you to find ways to meaningfully connect with others and share usefulness and work for others.

In spiritual language that’s called service. Except our economy is now called that too. It’s the intent that’s not always the same. But as this slow thinking and analysis (as in Dan Pink’s talk) eventually moves forward it is slowly proved to people (aka the mostly white algorithm-lovin dudes running western business) that *feels* good is also effective.
