The TechTalk episode where we discuss sci-fi authors, snowpocalypse, and the Facebook codebase

Escapist (comics)
This week's name-checks during my appearance on TechTalk Radio include Ray Bradbury, (via Fahrenheit 451), Michael Chabon (via The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) and Mark Zuckerberg (via the secret history of the codebase that went from a churlish "hot or not" application to, eventually, Facebook).

We also, as is newly traditional in the current Ice Age, debate the relative merits of snowmageddon vs. snowpocalypse as descriptor of the horrific Hoth reenactment the midwest has endured this year. But mostly, we talk about using tech to deal with the current rage of the Snow Gods.

There is some actual tech talk in this TechTalk episode, I promise. Give a listen.

The TechTalk episode in which I discuss M.A.S.H., The Super Bowl and the tyranny of edu-tech

The Diamond Age
So, they let me back on the radio again, and the result is a crazy mashup of Super Bowl stat debunking, railing against the Neilsen ratings system, the perils and promise of mind control via edu-tech (how we didn't reference The Diamond Age in this whole deal is astonishing), and eventually I ask a TV history question.

Anyhow, the rest of TechTalk Episode 373 is worth a listen, especially if you skip over my parts. There really is a good discussion of managing security and access within educational environments vis-a-vis Internet access and trust with mobile devices.

As always, the unabridged grimoire of my podcast atrocities is laid bear here.
