TDH – Aspiring Engineer

This week on the show, we say goodbye to longtime producer/co-host/friend Chris Perrone as he is graduating Carnegie Mellon University. I must suggest you go look at the images that we mentioned on the show, Steve Jobs as Willy Wonka, and images of the shuttle Discovery. We discuss social media and the effects of immediacy, splashed in with opinions about Windows 8 and the new DVD policy. Enjoy!
