Why is our show called You Can’t Eat Bits for Breakfast? On this episode I’m joined by Jesse Genet, my coconspirator at Lumi, and originator of the phrase.

Together we discuss the early experiences that led Jesse towards an entrepreneurial and creative life, her penchant for classic cars, lessons on competition from Buffalo Bill and why it’s important to make physical things.

We end by contemplating an article by Geoffrey Miller entitled Why We Haven’t Met Any Aliens in which he discusses the idea that by the time a civilization becomes advanced enough to visit another planet, it has the ability to virtually simulate the experience in more instantly gratifying way.

As esoteric as it might sound, this theory is a reminder that there is so much left to discover and create in the world of atoms.
