Stuart Langridge, Jono Bacon, and Jeremy Garcia present Bad Voltage, in which we like egg. Also:
- [00:02:38] And now, this: Famous rapper Jason Zed orders deepfake parodies of his voice off YouTube… Virginia spend time debating whether it’s ok to be drunk in your car while it’s in your driveway… a five-year-old steals a car to drive to LA to buy a Lamborghini, gets a free Lambo ride from Utah philanthropist… and Twitter think you’re interested in “egg” and a bunch of other stuff besides, so share your lists with us on the Slack channel…
- [00:15:35] The .org registry is being confirmed to not be being sold, Tim Bray, VP, quits Amazon over their firing of whistleblowers, and Facebook creates an oversight board, about which we are quietly pleased but a bit sceptical
- [00:26:20] Our main piece: health and posture and wellness, both digital and otherwise. Most of us in the technology community probably need to do better at sitting up straight, positioning monitors correctly, standing up, exercising more, and so on. We’ve been taking a look at some of the tools to help accomplish this, from standing desks and posture monitors to education and putting your screen on a pile of books. This also dovetails with the drive towards digital wellness: after the big initiative a couple of years ago to have OS vendors build tools into their systems to help us switch off, did it work? What do the tools do? And is anybody using them?
