TDH – NQS (Not Quite Speechless)

This week on the show I am left, not quite speechless regarding a couple of things, some of which are rather scary when you extrapolate the precedent, like the loss of your 4th amendment rights if you auto-identify as a hacker, or the high frequency spread of BIOS level malware. We explore what it means for the Obama administration to partner with reliability engineers from Google, Oracle and Red Hat to fix the issues with healthcare.gov. Will we get to the bottom of the genes that express mathematical aptitude?
