Podcast! The revolution has already happened

The revolution has already happened

This show was recorded INSIDE BBC Broadcasting House in Central London interviewing the amazing Bill Thompson for a second time. We talk about digital transformation, digital rights, security of data and reputation. Recorded live on the studio floor of the BBC Science team responsible for BBC Click.

I enjoy listening to Bill Thompson’s commentary on the BBC Click podcast. It’s something I do regularly to help keep up to speed on technological advances.


This tweet via ifttt requires celebration because I’ve finally got tweets to appear as I want them to. Whilst wandering through the ifttt applets, I had various reactions to individual recipes. Some of them could be really insecure if the hardware they employed wasn’t sufficiently locked down, and some, like the one above, made me feel slightly uncomfortable. Although it would be great to get up to freshly-brewed coffee, I would prefer to be the person who switched the machine on rather than delegating agency to another piece of software. There’s something strange about a machine knowing my consciousness was emerging from sleep.
