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.
