There’s a fine line between sharing and oversharing. And with our increasingly digital lives, it’s very easy to cross that line. Just think of that time your aunt wrote about her knee surgery on Facebook, or your friend from high school tweeted some way too in-depth details about his dating life.

Here at Innovation Hub, we’re all about sharing, including sharing some interviews that touch on oversharing. Don’t worry though, we won’t tell you anything about our dating lives.

First up, we’ve got Justin Hall, who started sharing his life online before the word blogging even existed. He’ll reflect on over 20 years of connecting with strangers over the Internet, and look at how he might give people even more of a peek into his world… using drones.


Then, being able to diagnose diseases, from cancer to HIV, in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Eugene Chan and Professor Andrew Ellington discuss this new frontier in medicine, and examine whether doctors might be sharing too much power with their patients.


You probably spend a lot of your life getting distracted by various screens. Whether it’s ignoring your date in order to play Candy Crush, or opening up a new tab to look at Twitter, it’s hard to focus on what you actually should be doing. Technology writer Clive Thompson has a counterintuitive solution: share your life with even more screens.  How spreading your work across multiple devices could help you concentrate.


Sit up straight! Whether it’s from parents, elementary school teachers, or drill sergeants, we’ve all heard those words before. But, what if it wasn’t a human that was telling you to correct your posture? Monisha Perkash has created a little chip that shares if you’re slouching, and tells you when to straighten your back.


Finally, management expert Roger Martin tells us a surprising fact that CEOs have shared with him: they’re being overpaid… and they know it. We’ll look at the rise of the talent economy, how the billionaire CEO came to be, and whether they can share the wealth with those of us that don’t run hedge funds.
