  3. The Incomparable - a podcast from The Incomparable

    This week we draw your attention to another excellent TV series that recently concluded a run of episodes: SyFy’s “The Magicians”. Based on a series of books by Lev Grossman, this is a show that starts out as a mash-up of Harry Potter and Narnia and goes in some very surprising directions while continually improving in quality. Love, war, sex, fairies, gods (some evil, some capricious, some just annoying)—there’s a lot to love about this show.

    In the first half of the episode we talk generally about the show and why we like it; the second half, after the Spoiler Horn, is devoted to breaking down the events of its just-completed second season.

    (Content advisory: “The Magicians” contains a couple examples of sexual assault/abuse. And we talk about them.)

  4. The Talk Show ✪: Ep. 192, With Special Guests Manton Reece and Brent Simmons

    The Talk Show

    ‘The Original Sin Is XML’, With Special Guests Manton Reece and Brent Simmons

    Wednesday, 31 May 2017

    Manton Reece and whisky-soaked baritone Brent Simmons join the show to talk about JSON Feed, the new spec they co-authored for syndicating things like blog posts and podcasts. We talk about their longstanding mutual interest in [Userland Frontier][f] — Dave Winer’s groundbreaking scripting environment from the early ’90s — and how that background and their mutual love for publishing on the open web and the democratization of technology ultimately led to the creation of JSON Feed, as well as their other new projects: Manton’s [Micro.blog][m] publishing platform, and Brent’s new open source Mac app, announced for the first time right here on the show. And of course a brief look ahead to next week’s WWDC 2017.

  5. The Incomparable | What Would Pop Do? (Episode 355)

    We take a deep dive into Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather Part II”, which is really two movies in one. Robert De Niro stars as young Vito Corleone, who comes to America and learns how to become The Godfather. And Al Pacino stars as Michael Corleone, trying to live up to the standard set by his father in the first film. In this episode we talk about its overarching themes, the two-timeframe approach, and the first portion of the film itself, including a visit to pre-revolution Cuba and Lee Strasberg as a grumpy old man who really wants you to look at his cake.

    [Part one of two.]

  7. Episode 47: The Problem with the Tor Network and Commercial VPNs

    When the US House of Representatives passed a controversial law about Internet privacy earlier this year, several news outlets published security advice suggesting that you should use the Tor network or a commercial virtual private network (VPN) to protect yourself. Both of those suggestions turned out to bad ideas. In this episode, Ben Wilde talks with Dan Guido, the founder of a New York-based security consultancy called Trail of Bits, about the trouble with Tor and commercial VPNs.

  8. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg in Imperfect is Perfect

    If you’re Steve Jobs, you can wait for your product to be perfect. But there are almost no Steve Jobs’ in the world. For the rest of us, If you’re not embarrassed by your first product release, you’ve released it too late. Imperfect is perfect. Why? Because your assumptions about what people want are never exactly right. Most entrepreneurs create great products through a tight feedback loop with real customers using a real product. So don’t fear imperfections; they won’t make or

    break your company. What will make or break you is speed. And no one knows this better than Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg.

    He shares the origin story of his famous mantra, “move fast and break things” and how this ethos applied as Facebook evolved from student project to tech giant.
