TDH – Governmental Affairs

This week on the show I start by going over the news of the possible net neutrality reversal by the FCC, and move on the track of governmental affairs, from Pennsylvania’s sting on Uber and Lyft to SpaceX and their goal of an Air Force contract. Amazingly, Carnegie Mellon Computer Club successfully recovered some of Andy Warhol’s computer art from 1985. All that and more this week.

TDH – Everything’s Interesting

We went a little long this week, but I don’t mind, I enjoyed my topics. We talked about Tom Wheeler, the FCC Chairman’s feelings regarding the upcoming auction in the 600MHz band, some new revelations regarding the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability, as well as the one year anniversary of the Digital Public Library of America. I got to geek out about how vinyl works, and in Science News we talked about blood sugar levels, as well as something that might be a new satellite of Saturn.

TDH – Technology isn’t Political

This week on the show, I talk about a number of cool things, between why Wi-Fi is not harmful to you, that there is an internal network in each Tesla model S, and how supersymmetry may or may not be a natural phenomenon. The message I drove home from other stories is that the political and social battles that we wage shouldn’t be waged in the technology sphere.
