Improbable Insights
Monthly+
 
Improbable Insights is a technology, gaming and general geekery podcast. We try to be short and pithy, splitting the podcast into three segments. Meaning: We dig deep into a single technology, gaming, or geek-related topic, trying to parse the meaning and implications that underlies the hype and general noise surrounding these topics. The meaning segment always focuses on a single topic. Tools: As Eric puts it, this is about what’s in our bag. What do we actually use, why we use it, and the ...

Data Privacy Detective - how data is regulated, managed, protected, collected, mined, stolen, defended and transcended.
 
Data privacy is the footprint of our existence. It is our persona beyond ourselves, with traces of us scattered from birth certificates, Social Security numbers, shopping patterns, credit card histories, photographs, mugshots and health records. In a digital world, where memory is converted to 0’s and 1’s, then instantly transformed into a reproduction even in 3D, personal data is an urgent personal and collective subject.

The last collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories contains some of the most dramatic moments of the entire Sherlock Holmes canon. "The Dying Detective" sees the great Holmes brought low by a fatal illness and refusing even Dr Watson's medical care. "The Bruce-Partington Plans" is a case of national importance, not least for the introduction of Mycroft Holmes.
