Unstructured: Dynamic Informal Conversations with amazing people.

Episodes

Tommy Griffith has been doing search engine optimization for more than 10 years. He previously managed SEO at PayPal and Airbnb, and now runs ClickMinded, a digital marketing training platform for marketers and entrepreneurs.

Tommy started ClickMinded as a side project while working full-time at Airbnb. He grew it until it started generating more revenue than his annual salary. Two years ago, he quit Airbnb to go full-time on it and ran into a number of problems in trying to grow the business from there.

In this episode we not only discuss the ins and outs of SEO in an organization but also what it took for him to burn all the boats and launch his own company. Note that it is not a kumbaya tale but rather a story of hard work.

Jenny speaks, consults and trains people in the skills of “people hacking” and explains how “Social Engineering” using psychological methods can be a huge threat to organizations of all sizes. She reveals how that same knowledge is a valuable tool for security professionals of all types in the prevention of these attacks, scams and cons of all kinds.

Using a mixture of scams, psychological tactics, advanced profiling and non verbal communication skills, Jenny highlights how criminals, special interest groups and others with malintent, can talk or trick their way into gaining access to personnel, buildings and confidential information.Â

Using a blend of anecdotes, science and humor, Jenny is an exceptional and highly impactful speaker. A regular keynote at major security events (Infosec, Rant, DISA, Nordic IT Security, ICS2, Trend Micro, Cisco, NTT, Bright talk, Cyber Security Week) and multiple TEDx contributor, Jenny has been a guest expert on security, scams and social engineering for various television and radio shows as well as online media.

After many years arguing with people who were wrong on the internet, Jesse Richardson realized that evidence and rationality were utterly useless in the face of entrenched beliefs and motivated reasoning. 

What he suddenly understood with great clarity, punctuated by the tangy sting of tartar sauce, was that the root cause of almost every problem in the world was nothing so complicated as money and power, but simply that most of us are never taught how to think independently and critically. 

So, after several months work, he launched a little microsite that took 24 of the most common fallacies of logic that politicians, the media, and advertisers use to deceive and manipulate people and made them something that wasn't entirely boring.

Specifically, he took each fallacy and condensed it down into a single simple sentence that anyone could understand, added some nice graphics, and made the microsite URL interactive so that anyone could use it to tag someone committing a fallacy online e.g. yourfallacy.is/ad-hominem

The yourfallacy.is website went immediately viral, hit the front page of reddit.com and the resources have reached at least 18 million students, teachers, parents, leaders, managers and everyday people around the world in over 7 languages
