  3. Chapter 5, Part 1 – Mercury Center and Pathfinder – Big Media’s Big Web Adventure | Internet History Podcast

    We’ve been looking at how companies were feeling their way into the internet era, trying to create new industries and new mediums without precedent or a road map. But thus far, we’ve mainly been looking at pure-play tech companies. And when the web revolution came, everyone wanted a piece of it, not just the tech world. So, this episode looks at the creative and business efforts of those people companies who came from outside the traditional environs of Silicon Valley.

    We’re largely going to look at big media. When the web began, it was considered to be a new medium, and so it was assumed by many if not most people that big media would logically dominate this new medium. The reason this did not come to pass is complicated, and we’ll look at some of the many reasons why. We’ll look at pioneering newspaper efforts like the San Jose Mercury News’ Mercury Center. We’ll examine unlikely big media web properties that got the web exactly right, like the Weather Channel. We’ll look at how one unlikely company, Reuters, singlehandedly disrupted the entire content industry by turning news into an online commodity. And more than anything, we’ll look at the rise and ignominious fall, of Pathfinder, onetime rival of sites like Yahoo, the portal that maybe wasn’t a portal, the greatest website you don’t remember.

    What’s today’s culinary villain du jour? Fat. Cholesterol. Gluten. Toxins. Scary-sounding ingredients: Did you know that practically everything we eat contains dihydrogen monoxide?!

  5. #573: Status Update — This American Life

    Most of the time, the updates we share about our lives are small and inconsequential. This week, status updates that interrupt daily life. We hear two friends talk about how one of them has become rich and famous. And an entire town gets a status update on itself.

  6. Digital Dark Age – On The Media

    On this week’s episode of On the Media, we’re engaging in some chillingly informed speculation: what would happen if we, as a species, lost access to our electronic records? What if, either by the slow creep of technological obsolescence or sudden cosmic disaster, we no longer could draw from the well of of knowledge accrued through the ages? What if we fell into…a digital dark age?

  7. Did science fiction predict the future of journalism?

    What’s the future of journalism? Amidst countless conferences, anxious op-eds and much hand-wringing, journalist Loren Ghiglione believes he might have found some answers in an unlikely place: science fiction. Despite his initial disdain for the genre, Ghiglione explains to Brooke that sci-fi is full of predictions that we’d be wise to consider.

  8. Behind The Code Curtain

    The products made by Apple, Google, and Facebook in large part mediate our experience of the world, and yet most of us haven’t a clue about how they actually work. Brooke speaks with Paul Ford, the writer and programmer behind this week’s 72-page issue of Bloomberg Businessweek, "What is Code?," about the integral role code plays in our lives.

  10. Longform Podcast #124: Alex Blumberg

    Alex Blumberg is a former producer for This American Life and Planet Money. Last year he founded Gimlet Media, a podcast network, and hosts its first show, StartUp.

    “When someone starts talking about something difficult, when they get unexpectedly emotional, your normal human reaction is to sort of comfort and steer away. To say, ‘Oh I’m sorry, let’s move on.’ What you need to do, if you want good tape, is to say, ‘Talk more about how you’re feeling right now.’ It feels like a horrible question to ask. It feels like you’re going against your every instinct as a decent human being to go toward the pain that this person is experiencing.”

    Thanks to TinyLetter, Lynda and Alarm Grid for sponsoring this week’s episode.
