Ep. 091 - Tech ecosystems and responsibility to end users and participants

April 12, 2021

This week we discuss ecosystems... not like where plants and animals live, but tech ecosystems like an app store, or Amazon or Facebook... or even operating systems like Microsoft with communication platforms, productivity tools and more.

The focus of the conversation is on the responsibilities of the ecosystem owners and how we see things currently working in ecosystems and how they might be changed moving forward.

Show Notes Galore for this Episode! We started things off sharing our thoughts about a Sam Harris podcast episode where special guest Roger McNamee discussed his book "Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe" You can catch that episode in full here: https://samharris.org/podcasts/152-trouble-facebook/

We also discussed what facebook might look like in the next five years. That conversation was sparked by this article: https://www.wired.com/story/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-15-months-of-fresh-hell/

We also had some discussion around youTube and Twitter regarding content and responsibilities sparked by a tweet from one of our favs - Tim Pool https://twitter.com/Timcast/status/1118140799676506112 - of course this got us talking AI and the Achilles Paradox - https://www.britannica.com/topic/Achilles-paradox

Ep. 024 - The gender dropdown discussion

Ep. 024 - The gender dropdown discussion

November 15, 2018

I wish we could say we were sorry for the click bait, but one of the topics we covered tonight was the dropdown menu for gender. You will have to listen to the episode to hear how we covered it, but trust us... it is something worthy of discussion. We also discussed how our combined journalistic talents are on par with the rest of the world of tech news, in our humble opinions... LOL

As always, give it a listen and let us know what you think! Until next week...

Ep. 019 - How much privacy do our browsers really give us, and are there alternatives?

September 5, 2018

Yup, we talked about browsers tonight... something along the lines of browser wars version 3.0. Apparently firefox is coming out with a new version that blocks all tracking out of the box... then we find out that a browser called Brave also already does this out of the box! Kevin talked about a chrome plugin that lets you pick which scripts to block and Bob worried about what all this new browser stuff will do to his robust event tracking in google analytics. We also talked a bit about the social media hearings on the Hill today and what this all means for the future of truth in our worlds... tune in and let us know what you think!
