  1. Dark Patterns and Ada Lovelace - Tech Weekly podcast | Technology | The Guardian

    How user interfaces are designed to trick us. Plus, the legacy of Victorian computing pioneer Ada Lovelace.

    Ever subscribed to a mailing list by mistake? Booked travel insurance without noticing? Then you’ve fallen for a Dark Pattern.

    This week on the podcast we investigate the murky world of Dark Patterns: user interfaces that use psychological techniques to trick us into doing things we might otherwise not do.

    And as a new exhibition dedicated to Ada Lovelace opens at the Science Museum, we find out why the Victorian computing whizz is the hottest ticket in town 200 years on.

    Nathalie Nahai is joined by digital product designer Cennydd Bowles, Channel 4 News tech journalist Geoff White, designer Dan Lockton and Science Museum curator Tilly Blyth.

  3. Ten years of Google Maps – Tech Weekly podcast

    On this week’s Tech Weekly podcast, we mark Google Maps’ 10th anniversary – yes, it has been 10 whole years since digital maps hit the mainstream and banished the A to Z from people’s bags.

    Gary Gale from the UK’s Ordnance Survey joins us down the line to talk about the company’s mapping initiatives around digital maps and where maps go next – indoors.

    Plus professor Mark Graham from the Oxford Internet Institute discusses how the geographies of the internet have reconfigured how people engage with the city.

  4. Episode 576: When Women Stopped Coding

    Mark Zuckerberg. Bill Gates. Steve Jobs. Most of the big names in technology are men.

    But a lot of computing pioneers, the ones who programmed the first digital computers, were women. And for decades, the number of women in computer science was growing.

    But in 1984, something changed. The number of women in computer science flattened, and then plunged.

    Today on the show, what was going on in 1984 that made so many women give up on computer science? We unravel a modern mystery in the U.S. labor force.
