Alex Kantrowitz is a senior technology reporter at BuzzFeed News and author of Always Day One: How the Tech Titans Plan to Stay on Top Forever.
S5 Ep 31: In this episode, meet entrepreneur Meredith Fineman, technology reporter Alex Kantrowitz, and attorney Adrienne Lawrence. Each of these authors has taken a hard look at how engrained company cultures and established hierarchies can deeply and often negatively affect everything from worker productivity and innovation to employees’ basic ability to grow and thrive. Listen in to learn what it means to “brag better,” how to apply the internal structures of tech giants to your own work place, and how to survive and thrive after serious workplace harassment. Plus, hear what it was like for each of these authors to record their audiobooks, and who may think twice before ever using “so many letter p’s in a sentence again.” Brag Better by Meredith Fineman: https://www.penguinrandomhouseaudio.com/book/617868/brag-better/ Always Day One by Alex Kantrowitz: https://www.penguinrandomhouseaudio.com/book/607065/always-day-one/ Staying in the Game by Adrienne Lawrence: https://www.penguinrandomhouseaudio.com/book/609265/staying-in-the-game/
BuzzFeed News reporter Alex Kantrowitz talks with Recode's Kara Swisher about his new book, Always Day One: How The Tech Titans Plan To Stay On Top Forever. He discusses how coronavirus may change consumers’ relationship with tech giants, the opportunity for a new major labor movement, and how the companies he profiled in the book — including Amazon, Apple, and Facebook — keep from getting out-innovated. Kantrowitz says education, and not automation, is the larger problem for the long-term future of work, and argues that TikTok is one of the only places young people are learning to be creative; he also explains why Apple is stuck in a similar rut now to the one Microsoft was in under Steve Ballmer.

In his book, Alex profiles a number of the tech giants we all know and maybe love, including Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Google and Facebook. The book highlights what these companies are doing culturally to encourage innovation. In very different ways for instance, Amazon and Microsoft launched what are two of the world’s leading cloud services. Alex also goes into great detail on the podcast about innovation via AI, and at times how AI can go bad by being racist or sexist. Always Day One is a fantastic read for anyone looking to understand innovation at these companies, even more so for those looking to embrace these practices in their own organizations.
