TWiL 122 Video — Meet Sue Domonous

 

The title is a play on what I hereby pronounce to be an utterly unpronounceable word: psuedonymous. Psuedonymity is much on people's minds lately with recent decisions and discussions regarding Google+. We also consider whether and how long ISPs should be required to retain customer data (and whether that has anything at all to do with child safety), how you can procure real (but unauthorized) stormtrooper armor without violating a single Lucasfilm copyright, and more.

TNT 295 Video — Google Threatens Death by 1,000 Patents

I had a great time last Friday on Tech News Today with Sarah Lane, Tom Merritt, and Iyaz Akhtar driving. Topics included AT&T redefining "unlimited" bandwidth, Apple having more money than the U.S. government, high I.Q. browsers, and more as described here. Tech News Today airs daily, live at 2:30 p.m. Pacific. It's a great way to keep up-to-the-minute on what's going on in the technology world.

TWiL 121 Video — Funeral Urns and Worm Poop

 

This was one of my favorite episodes yet, with great insights from professor/author Timothy Sandefur, expanding on ideas from his book The Right to Earn a Living.

TWiT 310 Video — This Old Cottage

 

It was wonderful getting to join This WEEK in TECH yesterday with Xeni Jardin, Gina Smith, and of course the inimitable (but ailing; hope you're better now Leo!) Leo Laporte. This was the last episode in the TWiT Cottage — we'll miss you, 8 Keller Street! (Alternate title suggestions I +1'd: When Uterii Fly; Three Girls, One TWiT.)

TWiL 120 Video — Colorado Grandmothers for 200, Alex!

 

This week's episode was a hoot and a half for some reason, maybe it was the Trim Toniq. ;)
