Ted Bauer is a freelance writer and content strategist who writes prolifically about the future of work.  In this episode, he talks about some of his experiences in the corporate world.  He shares a story of how he broke the record for the number of story ideas when he first joined ESPN which both captures his frustrations with the corporate world and also illuminates his process of how he generates new ideas for his writing.   We talk a bit about technology and his view is that people are using technology not to engage with people but to hide from them.  His view of the future of work is simple – it’s about moving back to in-person, human to human engagement and questioning a lot of the things we take for granted in modern organizations.
