TDH – Follow-ups and Design

This week on the show I follow up with the Huawei/NSA espionage developments we talked about last week, as well as the Turkey/Twitter and DNS story. Mark Zuckerberg backed’s plan to use drones to bring the internet everywhere, and we learn about an asteroid that seems to have rings.

TDH – Take A NSA Break

This week on the show, I talk about how Mt. Gox found some of the missing Bitcoins, which isn’t as unbelievable as it may seem, how the California DMV might have compromised your credit cards, and a 1,000 mph car. This among the academic exercise of Netflix as a P2P distribution model, and my attempt to wane reporting on the NSA and information spying.

TDH – Governmental Cognitive Dissonance

This week on the show I speak to more egregious violations of citizen’s privacy via NSA initiatives, either current or former, as well as some good will to be earned back by distributing the DNS root. I get frustrated with Neil Young’s desire to include ultra-sonics in your music, but you can have Brian Greene explain String Theory to you for free.

TDH – Know Where You Get Your Info

This week on the show, I talk at length, and keep returning to the message of where information comes from, who you can trust with it, and why you might not want to. This conversation was spurned on by the new handsets announced at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona this past week, as well as the RSA conference, and the counter-conference TrustyCon in San Francisco also this past week. We learn about a major win for the 4th Amendment in Texas as well as particle physicists’ desire for more powerful supercolliders.
