The Talk Show
‘People Are Gay All the Time’, With John Moltz
Saturday, 15 November 2014
Who else but very special guest John Moltz to ring in The Talk Show’s centurial episode. Topics include the new book Moltz co-wrote, The Visual Guide to Minecraft; writing tools, including word processors and Markdown; shopping for gaming PCs as a Mac person; Microsoft Office going free on mobile platforms; Twitter’s stilted strategy statement; President Obama’s statement on Net Neutrality; and Tim Cook’s eloquent essay announcing that he’s gay.
