We Need Some Context!
Religious twittering, Google nesting, and hobbyists careering.
In which we talk about how context shapes (or should shape) our decisions regarding technology, with three big topics:
- Christian author and former pastor John Piper and Pope Francis on Twitter
- Google acquiring Nest and the ensuing internet freakout
- Intentionally unprofitable bands and the changing shape of music industry, as highlighted by miniature label Controlled Burn Records and band Nonagon
Sometimes we mention things in our show. When we do, we link them here. Makes it easier for you that way… gives you some context, as it were.
