TDH – I Want The Old Version

This week on the show Erik and I wax reminiscent as we talk about the way certain things used to be. We talk about GNOME, Linux’s favorite desktop interface,  user Terminals making a comeback via thin-clients, NASA in the 60’s, and the most elusive of all, the Facebook of two weeks ago. Remember that one? The one that used its power protected your information from evil potential employers?  Anyway, join us as we open our doors and hearts to our robot overlords via the cute Morphex robot-ball, and look forward to the days when history is digital.
