  1. The Wheeler Centre: Search Me: Seth — The Wheeler Centre

    What was the last question you typed into Google, and what does it reveal about you? What does the data on all Google searches since the beginning of the internet tell us about our species?

    Seth Stephens-Davidowitz has a few ideas. He’s a former data scientist at Google and the author of Everybody Lies, a revealing and sometimes horrifying exploration of our accumulated internet search data. Diving deep into a truly awesome dataset (humans are estimated to amass eight trillion gigabytes of data in internet searches every day), Stephens-Davidowitz asks what our Google searches expose about human anxieties, biases and aspirations.

  2. Going Offline: Service Workers with Jeremy Keith

    We have special guest Jeremy Keith from ClearLeft to discuss Service Workers: what they are, how users can benefit from them, and how we implement them. Jeremy authored the book “Going Offline” which goes into glorious detail on the subject, so he’s well positioned to discuss the topic.

    We talk about how using a Service Worker can beneficially impact the user experience by allowing your website to still function despite spotty or no Internet connection at all. We also delve into many practical applications of the technology.

    We discuss how in-browser technologies like Service Workers allow websites to act more like “apps”, how Service Workers are installed, and how they are like a virus, a toolbox, and a duckbilled platypus at once.
