Humility Is the New Smart (18:26) Edward D. Hess is a Professor of Business Administration and Batten Executive-in-Residence at the Darden Graduate School of Business at the University of Virginia. He spent over 30 years in the business world prior to joining academia as a lawyer, investment banker, strategy consultant, and entrepreneur. Ed Hess is the author of Humility Is the New Smart: Rethinking Human Excellence in the Smart Machine Age. When America and the world entered the industrial age, brute strength became a less important characteristic and being smart became much more important. Ed Hess argues that with the Information age another characteristic is becoming more important than being ‘smart’.  Public Wi-Fi (1:08:13) Luke Bencie is one of the most recognized security consultants anywhere in the world.  He is the Managing Director of Security Management International (SMI) and the author of Among Enemies: Counter-Espionage for the Business Traveler and Global Security Consulting: How to Build a Thriving International Practice.

Using free public Wi-Fi networks, for example, comes with any number of serious security risks, yet surveys show that the overwhelming majority of Americans do it anyway.
