In each episode of Gweek, I invite a guest or two to join me in a discussion about recommended media, apps, and gadgets. My guests were Boing Boing’s software developer Dean Putney and Rob Reid, an entrepreneur and author of the science fiction novel Year Zero. We talked about Dean's Kickstarter-funded book, the Walter Koessler Project; Sony RX-100, which Rob finds to be "an absolutely amazing pocket camera;" Starship Century, a fascinating compendium of scientific essays focused on considering the neari-ish term plausibility of interstellar travel; the Basis self-tracking watch (the first one that takes your pulse 24/7); a stunningly beautiful comic book biography called The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story; the newly redesigned; and a new cartoon series by Adventure Time's Rebecca Sugar, Steven Universe.
