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.
