I spoke to Bruce Schneier about his latest book A Hacker’s Mind: How the Powerful Bend Society’s Rules, and How to Bend them Back.

Some of the topics we discussed includes:

  • How does hacking reinforce expositing power structures?
  • What is the difference between hacking and cheating?
  • How ‘Societal Hacks Are Often Normalized’ and how big financial companies often look for hacks.
  • How do the rich and powerful use luxury real estate as a hack?
  • When does being ‘Too Big To Fail’ also become a hack?
  • How do companies such as Uber and Wework benefit from Venture Capitalism as a hack?…
