This award-winning series explores The Future of Everything. What can we expect of next week, next year, next century? What will we eat, drive, wear, live in, vote for, want to buy, and want to avoid? What mistakes of the past will we make again, and which ones have we learned from? From the next tick of the clock to the ultimate end of the universe, every subject is fair game. Composed of interviews and essays, it's hosted by the author and futurist Stephen Euin Cobb. Guests include: famous authors and the occasional celebrity, but mostly futurists, innovators, technologists, analysts, entrepreneurs, and those pushing the limits of technology, as well as those struggling to understand the trends growing strong around us now--since it is those trends which will create the future in which we will all live. This program is not about magic, or prophecy, or psychic divination. Instead, we attempt to use verifiable facts as our foundation, and from them extrapolate forward. All such ext ...
So many podcasts are about our digital devices. Analog(ue) is a show about how these devices make us feel and how they change our lives for the better, but also for the worse. Hosted by Myke Hurley and Casey Liss.
Fire was our first true piece of technology. Around its warming glow, we would tell stories, share our thoughts, and bond with the people we love. Centuries later, our fires have been digitized, and thrown into everyone's pocket. They are infinitely more powerful. This is a podcast dedicated to exploring the intersection of technology and storytelling, from two writers connected by circuits, wires and a passion for writing.
Taking the long view on technology, religion, ethics, and art. There are plenty of podcasts that will tell you how Apple’s latest product will affect the tech landscape tomorrow, but there aren’t that many concerned with the potential impact of that tech in 2026. In a culture obsessed with now, how can we make choices with a view for tomorrow, next year, and beyond?

We’ve talked before on this show about social networks and live video and how those two things together can be a powerful force in anyone’s hands. When companies like Facebook talk live streaming though, it’s always from a place perfection, with images of exotic beaches or snow-covered mountain tops lingering in the background. What about when someone uses live video to broadcast something less than good? What about the people filming it, caught in the middle between watching something terrible unfold and the people on the other end commenting and asking questions? Those answers are a little more tricky. Where does responsibility lie when telling live stories?

Timothy Baughman (professional Network Security Analyst & Master of Information Security) is our featured guest. Topics: if quantum computers become publicly available, and are as powerful as we are told they will be, all of everyone's past encrypted secrets will be revealed to anyone who wishes to read them--emails, banking transactions, Silk Road purchases, the entire Darknet, and any money laundering hidden within the bitcoin blockchain. Future encryptions will be secure (at least for a while) but every previously encrypted file and document that is findable on the Internet will be laid bare. If you have ever done something that you shouldn't, and you are counting on encryption to keep your secret forever, you need to think again. Also, accuracy of the computer hacking on the TV show Mr. Robot; methods hackers use to get your password; how little protection is provided by a fully encrypted hard drive; and why the hardest part of the computer security profession is "securing the ...

After years spent conquering homes and businesses across the world, culminating with one on nearly every desk, the PC, it seems, may finally be on its last legs. The computer industry - which is to say, the makers of good ol’ fashioned desktop machines - is having a tough time, amongst shrinking sales figures and worry that there is no rebound in sight. The culprit? Smartphones of course, and tablets too. When everyone has a computer in their pocket, fewer need one on their desks at home.

For four billion years, what lived and died on Earth depended on two principles: natural selection and random mutation. Then humans came along and changed everything — hybridizing plants, breeding animals, altering the environment and even purposefully evolving ourselves. Juan Enriquez provides five guidelines for a future where this ability to program life rapidly accelerates. "This is the single most exciting adventure human beings have been on," Enriquez says. "This is the single greatest superpower humans have ever had."

Show Notes We use the Panama Papers as a jumping-off point to sum up the season and talk about: the alleged flatness of the world the possibilities of both globalization and localization the twin dangers of imperialism and parochialism the ways that growing income inequality intersect with globalization the things different cultures can learn from each other the distinction between “reasonable” and “justifiable” responses the importance of humility, whether in art or in charitable action the value of choosing not to do something at times In other words: how can you be a good actor in a global space? As an aside, on the rough size of a Word file (referenced with regard to the size of the Panama Papers data release): a 20-page paper from Chris’ seminary degree is about 52 kilobytes. 2 gigabytes would be 20,000 such papers.

Also: a Genetically Modified Mushroom will bypass GMO food rules through a regulatory loophole; IBM's Watson will advise and consult with cancer patients as well as with doctors; a British hospital live-streamed a surgery in virtual reality; insulin-making cells can be efficiently generated according to researchers at the Salk Institute; Blue CareOnDemand (from Blue Cross, Blue Shield) allows smartphone users access to a personal medical consultation with a doctor or nurse 24 hours a day any day of the year, for a price; Windows XP still powers 181 million computers around the world, which means it is more popular than all Apple computers combined.

In about a decade, Facebook has gone from connect students on college campuses to building laser-equipped drones to beam the internet down to people in places that lack connectivity. It’s a monolith, so large and imposing that many see it as not only their front door to the web, but the web itself. And that’s exactly why the company’s yearly developer conference, F8, is so important - because as Facebook’s story changes, so too do the stories of over a billion people across the planet using its services. So this week on the show, a rundown of Facebook’s 10 year roadmap and how it will help us tell better stories.

The global nature of Christianity and the beauty of many cultures practicing the same faith Show Notes We look at how Christianity is changing as it shifts from being heavily Western to being far more global (as it was in its birth).
