I start off with a quick update about a guest on my show who gave me a gift which I’ll be using in my podcast studio! I also discuss (spoiler free) the Game of Thrones finale this weekend and what the show’s level of violence means for our future including a future filled with virtual reality. I end with a rant about the tech industry, being a [demographic] in tech, and filtering false information about the industry in general.

I wrote a programming tutorial for the website scotch.io! This is a milestone in my programming career and I share a few thoughts on why I’m happy to have it published. I recently purchased a Google Cardboard and talk about some of the VR that’s available today at an affordable price. Finally I share some thoughts I have on the digital world we’re entering and new ways of creating content in a world where scarcity is rarely a hurdle.

Today I had the pleasure to chat with the Atlanta-based YouTube political commentator ThatGuyT! If you listened to prior episodes you may remember me attending an event to see Milo Yiannopoulos speak at Emory University. While I was there I met ThatGuyT and he was more than willing to join me on the show.
We discuss how and why he got started making YouTube videos, libertarianism, the current election, Black Lives Matter, and the current state of American universities.
Be sure to check out ThatGuyT on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook through the links below.
I recently applied a principle of computer science to my real life thanks to the podcast “Note to Self". It showed me how much time I and many others waste managing and organizing our email. I also discuss the “10x developer” within tech and why a difference in productivity that large isn’t that unrealistic. Finally, I finish by mansplaining the Stanford rape case.
After a quick recap/nerd out session where I talk about ELeague and eSports I talk about one my biggest concerns with tech: information overload. I break down how the Internet alters our perspective on the world making the average person pessimistic and why it’s important to keep the scale and frequency of this data in mind.
