Fractal Radio | Episode 19 – Pundits Disease

Pundits and commentators whether mainstream or independent tend to be removed from direct… Continue Reading “Fractal Radio | Episode 19 – Pundits Disease”

Fractal Radio| Episode 18 – Legacy Pollutants Ramble

All my childhood and adolescent visions of precincts with tidy file cabinets of records… Continue Reading “‘Don’t Datamine Me Bro’ – Taser, Axon, Skynet? (Part II)”

‘Don’t Data Mine Me Bro’ | Taser, Axon, Skynet? (Part One)

However faintly the frantic words ‘don’t tase me bro’ still probably echo in the popular imagination. Subduing a nebbish university student for an uncouth question is arguably the wrong way to use a taser. Is there a right way? Figuring that out has been… Continue Reading “‘Don’t Data Mine Me Bro’ | Taser, Axon, Skynet? (Part One)”

Fractal Radio | Episode 10 – World Wide Problem Domain

I stall for time! In the coming days, I will post a fairly in-depth analysis of internet issues and the recent Vanity Fair Article about Tim Berners-Lee and his new project called ‘SOLID.’ For now, I just give a brief overview of the problem… Continue Reading “Fractal Radio | Episode 10 – World Wide Problem Domain”
