  1. Ghost in the machine: automation and future employment - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    For decades machines have gradually been replacing blue-collar jobs, but now algorithms and increasingly sophisticated machines have begun eating their way into decidedly white-collar territory.

    And as a result, economist Tyler Cowen now predicts the hollowing out of the middleclass. But is the picture really that gloomy? We explore the impact of technological change on the way we’ll work in future.

Listeners of SSKTN will know that I, Chris Enns, am a big fan of Huffduffer so I wanted to have Jeremy on to chat about Huffduffer. We talked about where the idea came from, the nerdy origins of the name and ways to help your podcast look better when it gets Huffduff’d.

  4. Untangling the Web: Ideologies of the Technologies

    How has the most revolutionary innovation of our time - the Internet - transformed our world? What does it mean for the modern family? How has it changed our concepts of privacy? Of celebrity? Of love, sex and hate?

    In this excerpt from Untangling the Web: What the Internet is Doing to You, author Dr Aleks Krotoski raises a thought provoking question: do we rule the technology, or is it ruling us?.

    "Aleks Krotoski is a rare combination of academic (she has a PhD in psychology), geek, reporter and fluent essayist." - The Guardian

    "Her combination of cautious academic rigour and geek-like enthusiasm makes a very valuable contribution to the debate" - Financial Times

    More on this topic at, the reporter’s notebook for the Guardian and Observer column and the book.
