It's been a while so we ranged widely over everything from driving trucks, to Facebook's big outage, to a riff on Louis CK's But maybe", to health, and finally to the miraculousness of our devices. Hope you enjoy it.

The dystopian edition.

We normally manage to maintain a relatively positive outlook on the web and life in general but this time we struggled. Anti-vaxers, pumping shit onto the internet, and VR violence and pornography, we ploughed our way through it all ending up deciding that skepticism/cynicism was the only valid response.

This takes us to some reflections on uploading our data servers of companies that might or might not loose it at some point. Finally we talk about Windows, and the always improving compatibility between applications and platforms.

In this episode we talk about getting older but no wiser, new Apple stuff that is incredibly cool but that we're not going to buy, an interesting new subscription support for podcasters, oh, and we almost fall out again, this time over consultancy. As a special bonus we both tell a joke and end up on the cheery subject of identity theft.

In this episode we start from vaccines and how conversations and online influence are impacting public health, we move on to celebrities interviews and how many think they must take a side. After a quick debate on handle and hooks, we talk about food, cats and caravans. We end wondering how many of the new behaviours adopted in the last year will end up lasting.

Sotn Podcast 37

This episode we use Euan's blog's twentieth birthday as an excuse to riff on the early days of the internet and how things have changed. Who would have thought we would one day have a US President who was a troll? How did we survive without being able to look up just about anything whenever and wherever we want? And why do companies in the east approach the new opportunities afforded by the web fundamentally differently? We end up talking about the wonder that is the NHS, how technology can help us stay healthy, and how important getting out into the real world is.
