    The Choice Eaters

    June 23rd, 2016 by John Ferguson

    BEWARE THE CHOICE EATERS!

    Politicians and other shysters take up and use the Choice that others have abandoned, and they encourage others to abandon their own Choice so that it’s easier for the Choice Eaters to consume. They are like carrion fowl: they consume the corpses of abandoned Choice. Some few of them know well what they’re doing. The rest are just chumps, following “conventional wisdom.” But, you know, even the chumps will eat your Choice if you abandon it.

    May 10th, 2016 by John Ferguson

    May 3rd, 2016 by John Ferguson

    In this Episode

    Finally, Robert and John get to really start exploring scams. What is a scam? Why is it so important to understand the mechanics that make something a scam, or not? What does this all have to do with technology and choice?

    We dig in on a scam that Robert himself got snared by, and what he did about it. The image of throwing a ragdoll to a puppy is invoked. Listen to see how it came out.

    Technology and Choice article (What's in a Name?)

    April 18th, 2016 by John Ferguson

    [Note: link to author's reading of the article appears at the bottom of the article]

    Technology and Choice is a great name for a podcast, don’t you think? A lot of people seem to find the title compelling, all by itself. I know I do. There’s so much implied, yet so formlessly. Even I only have a vague idea of where we’re going with this--just a thread to start pulling, really. So, why is the name so engaging?
