    Technology and Choice #05, Scam Tech 101

    May 3rd, 2016 by fergish

    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 fergish

    [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?
