Thank you to all of you for listening, but especially to our Patreon Supporters for kicking in a little money each month to help make this possible. Specifically, thank you to Kate Macintyre-Ross, Zareh Gorjian, Rin-senpai, Funeral Cleavage, Rochelle Mantanona, and the GeekNights Podcast for donating $5 or more each month.

Harvey Weinstien stuff.
Is the parochialness of American news damaging to Americans?
Our homes are being fractured technologically by smart devices into multiple walled gardens. Should there be some sort of mandate to force, say, Alexa, Cortana, and Google Home to play nice together? Or should the market decide?

The Washington Post’s Outlook section invited 10 writers to sift through the world’s clutter and each nominate one thing – an idea, a tradition, a habit, a technology, you name it – that we’d all be better off tossing out this spring. What they got ranged from “The Simpsons” to “Democracy”. What thing would you want eliminated?

A bill has been introduced into the senate that would give the Department of Justice and individuals new powers to enforce copyright and trademark law against “rogue” and “pirate” Web sites that offer unlicensed copies of protected content or which sell illegal knock-offs of brand-name goods by taking them off the internet. Never mind the questions of the technological feasibility of this bill, what do you think of the possible ramifications of this, if it even passes.
