  1. Lost Audio from 07/18/2021 | 2600

    In March of 1984, I was involved in the first year of 2600. I was also in the thick of a major hacking case involving a company called GTE Telenet. The FBI had raided WUSB and my friend’s house because those were the two locations that I was connecting from (I had yet to have my own computer). After months of limbo, I was getting impatient and wanted the case to move forward. So after determining that half a year after the raids (October 1983), there had been no effort to improve security (the default password remained "A"), a friend and I visited Robert Krulwich over at National Public Radio to share the story with him. These "Morning Edition" pieces were the result. And shortly after they aired, I got the indictment I was pushing for.

  2. Haxan Cloak - The Men Parted The Sea To Devour The Water (excerpt)

    From the forthcoming Latitudes session. Following his critically acclaimed debut album on Aurora Borealis, the new Tri-Angle signee, The Haxan Cloak (AKA Bobby Krlic), has quite gracefully buried himself deep into the networks of unsettling electronic music. This Latitudes release is, in essence, Bobby live, but think of it as ‘The Haxan Cloak 2.0’.

  4. Episode 58: The Neoliberal Optimism Industry

    We’re told the world is getting better all the time. In January, The New York Times’ Nick Kristof explained "Why 2017 Was the Best Year in Human History." The same month, Harvard professor and Bill Gates’ favorite optimist Steven Pinker lamented (in a special edition of Time magazine guest edited by - who else? - Bill Gates) the “bad habits of media… bring out the worst in human cognition”. By focusing so much on negative things, the theory goes, we are tricked into thinking things are getting worse when, in reality, it’s actually the opposite.

    For the TEDtalk set, that the world is awesome and still improving is self-evidently true - just look at the data. But how true is this popular axiom? How accurate is the portrayal that the world is improving we so often seen in sexy, hockey stick graphs of upward growth and rapidly declining poverty? And how, exactly, are the powers that be "measuring" improvements in society?

    On this episode, we take a look at the ideological project of telling us everything’s going swimmingly, how those in power cook the books and spin data to make their case for maintaining the status quo, and how The Neoliberal Optimism Industry is, at its core, an anti-intellectual enterprise designed to lull us into complacency and political i…

  5. Unplugged from the Matrix

    Rework is a podcast by the makers of Basecamp about a better way to work and run your business. While the prevailing narrative around successful entrepreneurship tells you to scale fast and raise money, we think there’s a better way. We’ll take you behind the scenes at Basecamp with co-founders Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson and bring you stories from business owners who have embraced bootstrapping, staying small, and growing slow.
