WTF?

Sounds like a bunch of kids...

What with all that sniggering.

A particularly strong batch of weed per chance?

Re: who is broadcasting from the kitchen?

I think that was Mark. Makes it a bit more authentic doesn't it?

Re: who is broadcasting from the kitchen?

Actually, "authentic" and "lazy, unprofessional, & can't be bothered" all sound the same to me. I get some of the guys at work who are "telecommuting from home" on VOIP and I have to listen to the kid throw a tantrum cos it can't watch the wiggles on DVD (seriously!) and the high-pitched screams go on all the way to the bedroom. My question to the guy was "have you asked for a payrise, cos you obviously live in a phone booth".

I want just one conversation on a call at a time, un-cluttered by distraction and to the point. If you are having trouble finding a place where nothing happens, pod-cast from your f**king bedroom.

Irony...

Normally I don't listen to these pod casts, but this time I chose to listen....

While I loathe Boxer and Pelosi,

This is one of the rare occasions that they got it right.

The NSA's grabbing of the metadata from the calls made in the US (Phone #s, timestamp, and duration) and placed in a closed and audited system was in fact legal. See SCOTUS's ruling in Smith v. Maryland.

The irony is that while this upset the podsters, they cooed all about Google's continued invasion of our privacy.

(And no, we have no escape. Even if we don't agree to Google's capturing of our data. )

Clearly semi-intelligent people just not thinking about the world that they live in.

Re: Irony...

You are going to contrast intrusive NSA snooping to the completely voluntary and opt-in snooping Google is doing?

Re: Irony...

Coming from an AC... you can't really opt-out from Google.

(You can try... but no... they still know who you are... ;-)

Look, Google makes the NSA look like rank amateurs.

Re: would you

We have done a couple of episodes as Google+ Hangouts which are available on YouTube. I'd like to do more in the future. Do you think video is a better media for these discussions?

Re: would you

Nah, I reckon they just want to see what Sarah looks like (hint: think Janice from "Friends" but with ink)

Re: would you

Cajoling the stream onto chomeCast under control of android tablet it is tricky. With Youtube it is easy.

Probably safe to forget video unless you're setting fire to stuff or launching space planes ... or anything with robots.
