TDH – Privacy

Today on the show, Erik was off, and Chris joined me to talk about everything from environmentally friendly datacenters to your privacy in the face of Dropbox. I’m not trying to paint Dropbox as the bad guy here, but you should be a little concerned. The 6-Bit Byte, Facebook Frackups and Science and Kickers rejoin our show today, as new concerns about Google Streetview cars and the power of 9-Volts are explored. Enjoy!

TDH – Less than Impressed

I was less than happy with today’s show in general, and then the stream got reset so we don’t even have a full recording of the show. Everything should be okay for the Tom Merritt interview next week. I am definitely looking forward to interviewing him about his experiences in the tech industry. Today was a nice smattering of stories, and I enjoyed discussing them. Please feel free to read the articles, and listen to the first quarter and last quarter of our show. Positive outlook for next week!
