A highlight from How the West Can Compete with China in the Global AI Race - with Sean Gourley of Primer

"This episode, we are not focused on a particular use case or the impact of AI in one particular sector. We are focused on the international game of power that is technological predominance. Whether you are on the political right or the political left, it really doesn't matter at all to me. Probably all of us can agree that some basic freedoms such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press are things that we enjoy regardless of which political sway we happen to have. There are certainly authoritarian regimes who do not necessarily respect those rights per se. And whose ascendance to political predominance would be pretty challenging, no matter where you sit on the political spectrum. The west versus China when it comes to the AI race is a critical and important topic, one that I think is drastically underrepresented in conversations about AI ethics and AI risk. This week we focus squarely on that topic and we're lucky to be joined by Sean Gurley who is currently the CEO of primer AI they've raised some $170 million to focus on the analysis of large volumes of data. Sean earned his PhD in physics and complex systems at the University of Oxford, where he was also a research fellow for 5 years on quantitative analysis of war and conflict prior to that. He was a research scientist for NASA. Sean tackles two big topics in this episode. Number one, what are some of China's great advantages in the future of AI power when it comes to our entry into the metaverse when it comes to the ascendancy of cyber warfare versus just tanks and helicopters? Where does China have an edge over the western world broadly? Secondly, Sean talks about what the western world should be thinking about in terms of keeping up with and keeping in check, the authoritarian regime of China, whether this is dealing with TikTok, whether this is the adoption of artificial intelligence or new modes of collaboration internationally, Sean has some perspectives on what he hopes the western world will do to maintain enough strength to remain relevant and be able to keep those values alive in the coming half century ahead. I should note as we head into this article. I just published a substantial piece in our series called AI power on China's advantages in the metaverse, Sean is quoted in this article, as our leaders from the Department of Defense here in the United States, the chief minister of digital from the country of France and other policy experts and thinkers on artificial intelligence. You can find that article like in China's advantages in the metaverse at EME RJ dot com slash China and then the number one.

A highlight from SN 891: Poisoning Akamai - Turnstile vs CAPTCHA, Microsoft Teams Under Attack

"Is here. He's prepared he is ready to talk about the world of security. Steve Gibson from SG GRC phase. Is that you looking at the screen as if I can see through the magic mirror? I look back at you. It's an affectation that performers often use. I'm actually not even looking at you at all. But our audio listeners are like, what are those two clowns? In order to look at you and I'd have to turn my back on our audience. And I don't want to do that. So what I do is I look across to the left, as if you study drama at Yale. Yeah, that's where I learned this. Yeah. So it kind of looks like I'm looking at you. And in fact, I'm not. But it's complicated. So that works. What's up, Steve? So we got the first podcast for October, the fourth quarter of 2022, titled poisoning akamai. Oh boy. And it's really fun. Not only what two youngsters figured out. And the fact that this all happened without many people knowing about it earlier this year, but what the consequences of this could have been. And also, what happened after they went to akamai to explain. So really interesting. But we're going to first examine a puzzlingly insecure implementation by Microsoft in teams design and also look at Microsoft's complete rewrite of Microsoft defender smart screen. And we'll talk about that. Also, Ross come nan zor, strikes again. Yes, it's October. So that's goofy season. Yes. And exchange server is again under serious attack with a new zero day, which Microsoft knows about hasn't fixed yet, and their suggestion mitigations have been worked around. So we're hoping for an actual fix soon because it's a nasty one. Cloudflare has introduced turnstile, which is their free and much improved capture, which they're offering, even to non Cloudflare users. We've got to talk about that. Also, Google, just yesterday published a fabulously engaging 6 video YouTube series under the banner hacking Google. I have to talk about, and that's the tweet that you saw that I sent out. I was so fascinated by that. I forgot to tell everybody about the podcast. Anyway, I'll get around to that when you tell us about our sponsor here in a minute. Then we're going to spend some time sharing and replying to some lister feedback before we examine, as I said, a breathtaking flaw that was discovered in akamai's global content delivery network caching system and what became of it. And of course, we've got a picture of the week. All of that still to come on this fine security now on a Tuesday afternoon. Our show today brought to you by zip recruiter. And really, when I say brought to you by zip recruiter, I kind of mean it because zip recruiter is where we go to hire. As you know, a podcast is not just me and Steve sitting around shooting the breeze. We got producers. We've got editors. We got engineers. We got a lot of people involved. There are currently over 2.4 million podcasts in the world. If you include security now, 2.4 million and one. Every one of them is takes a team of people to put them together. That's a lot of jobs. At least 2.4 million jobs, right? Probably three or four times that. Needless to say, hiring the right people for those roles is important. It's very important to us. It's funny. Until I owned a company, I didn't really understand this, but your company isn't you. Your company is the people who are in the company. That's what makes the company. It's not you. It's not your product. It's the people. And so whether you have an opening for us in continuity or an opening and engineering or opening in sales, the person you put in there is what makes your company succeed or conversely fail. You want to hire the best possible person for that. When we had an opening at continuity, we posted on zip recruiter. That's Lisa's favorite hiring place. That's the only one we use. Found viva within, I think viva's application came in with a couple of hours, hired her in a few days. And you know, when you've got an opening and everybody's working overtime to fill that job, it's really nice to have somebody come in that's competent that's great. We love her. We've hired all of our best people through zip recruiter. So whether you're hiring for a podcast or for your growing business of any kind, there's only one place that makes it easy. Zip recruiter. You can try it for free right now. Zip recruiter dot com slash security now.

A highlight from Horizon Zero Dawn Does NOT Need a Remake - Beyond 770

"How was that? We good? We did it. We did a promo. Signing up right now. Really solid. I got them. A couple other things of housekeeping we have before we start the show proper is everybody's favorite Nintendo plumber guy. He's getting a trailer on Thursday. And so we are doing a live NBC reacts to the trailer so that'll be at 1 p.m. Pacific. They announced a direct for that today as well, but this is not a Nintendo voice chat podcast so we're not gonna get too into it. And then Street Fighter 6, the beta drops on Friday, October 7th, so my good friend Mitchell saltzman and the voice of Luke. Alex slay? I guess I should have looked that up. On October 7th, they're gonna play the beta for everybody, and that's at 1 p.m. on our Twitch stream as well. That's cool. Yeah. This has been the most advertising podcast so far, ever. Okay, one more bit of housekeeping. This is something that I've kind of hinted at in the comments and some of the savvy people in the comments have noticed. But people have been wondering, you know, what's next for beyond now that Jonathan dornbush has left us forever and is just what a memory in my heart. And the answer is you'll find out very soon. Next week is going to be my last week hosting podcast beyond and my last week as like a regular recurring member. I'm not saying I'll never pop up again. But next week is my last week as a permanent member and host of beyond. So it's been really, really fun hosting the show. We'll go over that more next week when Jada's here and all that good stuff. But for now, it's just something I wanted to let everybody know. Okay, we have a show to do. Let's talk about things that are fun. We're like 30 minutes into the podcast. So this has been a news filled week. So we're going to talk about CD Projekt Red. We're going to talk about all the movies and stuff that are in development. But first, we have to go over the biggest news that dropped over the weekend, which is that Horizon Zero Dawn is getting a remaster slash remake, and we don't know quite what to make of it. So just to quickly catch everybody up, there's been reports. This is all alleged. That the game is basically getting a remaster, all of the details from it have been points towards the fact that it's going to get a remaster, it's going to get new graphics options, which is what like Spider-Man and like ratchet and clank rift apart guy. It's going to get the accessibility options of forbidden west and just overall graphical improvements. It kind of spiraled and a lot of people think it's going to be a full on remake. It could be, I don't know. But I want to start with Matt, Matt, when you saw this news, what was the first thing that went through your mind? I mean, the first thing that I saw when I saw the headline on Twitter was why, but, you know, after that, you know, after the dust settled and people, I think, I think the reason why there was so much confusion is the last of us part one just came out. And so the idea of a full on remake was in, was fresh in people's minds. And so when people hear remake or remaster, they kind of think to the most nearest one, which is that. But I think after reading some of the people's reports, it sounds more like what happened to Spider-Man and all those other smaller upgrades. So I don't think it's going to be a full on remake. So after that, I guess I'm just like, well, I mean, if this is a project that they wanted to do over a gorilla and they feel that this is a good way to get people to play the first one again, then go for it. Yeah, I mean, that's kind of my thoughts as well as like, you know, your gut reaction is what? This game, okay, like last of us, you can kind of be like, all right, well that kind of made sense that game came out in 2013 for the PS3. Guy remastered, but yeah, they want to remake it, shiny new version for the HBO show. But like horizon is 5 years old, it's already received a PS5 patch. Not a PS5 native version, but a PS5 patch. And in that patch like the game looks great, it runs beautifully. It was very, very confusing. Why? This is like a thing, but we have some theories. And this is where I want to introduce why Alex stedman is here. Alex. Before we get into it, I want you to tell the audience what you do with IGN. Yeah, so it's funny that I'm here on our PlayStation podcast because I'm actually an entertainment editor at IGN. I oversee our entertainment reviews, so basically any movie, TV reviews, I oversee that. I write a lot of them. But I also really like video games, so it's fun when I get to come on one of these podcasts and there is a lot of overlap with the two because the thing I keep on saying is that video game adaptations are the new comic book adaptations.

"Now, here's your hosts, Steven Scott, and Sean priest. You know, I think I'm gonna get rob to redo that and what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna ask him to see the ever excitable Sean Preece. Oh, I like that. Why is that? What gives you that impression, Stephen? I have no idea. Hi, Sean. How are you? I'm very well, thank you those glasses. That made it sound a little bit ominous. I'll be honest with you. No matter what, I can't believe I would explain this, but yes, those glasses. Because everybody's talking about them. We don't do music in this show. Yes, and that was it. Yes, the envision glasses I definitely want to pair. It's as simple as that. I mean, they sound ideal. Perfect. Exactly. Well, I can not wait. I have been told. I said, I'm being told as if someone's telling me right now. I have just been handed some paper, yes. Oh, I can't read that one here. No, it says. So moving to the stop doing that. You're confusing me. Yeah, so I've got the news that the news. Yes, thank you. They are on their way. No. Yes. Well, as we speak, as we imagine literally as we speak, yes, I literally as we speak and vision glasses are winging their way to double tap headquarters. For me, no. Oh, okay. That's very good. You're assignment vision classes. The headset. Yes. Okay, so. Let's go to the news. Google stadia, do you know, whenever you hear about a Google project, which seems interesting, which seems like it might be quite useful. I often think to myself, how long will it be before they kill it off? Well, we can answer that question today because they've done it. They've killed off Google stadia. That's it gone. So goodbye cloud gaming, no more. It was a bit of a hard sell, right? But if anyone could pull it off you think Google could and apparently the performance was pretty damn good. It was nearly lag free. So it's a simple case that it couldn't keep up with the big boys of Xbox and PlayStation. So, you know, too late to the game, maybe? Do you know what I'm starting to wonder about this, right? Because I often think when Google ditched something, I think, oh, there we go, that's that. And I remember one project years ago called Google wave. One of the many that lie in the graveyard of Google. And the Google graveyard could work. Google docs. Slightly depressing, but carry on. Well, there's a lot of products in there. I mean, it's getting a little bit tight for space. Information. Google. Yeah, let's do the option left. Just an arm sitting there with Google wave written on it. But yeah, Google wave was a great product. It kind of brought together all your all your task managers, all your calendars, or your email into one really cool project. Into one website, it was really good actually. And I thought, this is one project I could really get into. And then he killed it. Well, you're a jinx, obviously.

Talk Python To Me

A highlight from #384: Python Data Visualization - Where To Start?

"We originally had you on the talk about the work that you're doing at practical business python and looking at the page now, your last article panda's group by warning on the 26th, which as of recording, two days ago, looks like you're still really active on practical business by then. I am. It's been a while to be honest. I spent a lot of time working on the course that we'll talk about in a moment. And so some of this stuff fell by the wayside. And I think like everybody in the COVID times have been a weird time warp for us all. So I haven't spent as much time on it as I would like, but I am getting back into it, and as you mentioned, just put a short article up there that in some ways kind of encapsulates a lot of what I want to do with practical business python is I'm writing in this specific article in general on the blog about problems that I encounter that I think can help other people. And this was a short article about some kind of gotcha behavior with group by that I've been bitten by a couple times and this most recent time I decided, you know what? I need to write about this. And share it with people so that hopefully they're not going to fall into the same traps that I had. I love when you write something as kind of a note for yourself or a road map for yourself and then later you go back and you search for it and you're like I got to remember how this went and hit number one is your result. You're like, okay, I guess I don't remember this, but I'm going back to it and my future self thanks my old self for it, right? Yes, exactly. And sometimes I even remember, I wrote an article about it and will refer to it and then a lot of times you're right. I'll do a Google search and I'm like, oh yeah. I did solve that before. How interesting? Yeah, cool. What a great resource people should be definitely checking this out if you want to do data science python data science intersected with python, of course. You were on the show a couple of times ago way back on 2019 and then before times escaping excel hell with python and pandas basically you are making the case for using the python data science stack instead of excel, right? Yes, absolutely. Yeah. And the blog and a lot of my experience has been doing data analysis, data manipulation, data science, and trying to leverage the power of python and most people in a business setting their go to data science data science tool for data analysis tool is excel. And it has its place. I'm not advocating. We get rid of excel. But I think there are a lot of things that we can do with python that are much quicker, much less error prone and much more efficient than trying to do it in excel. And excel is one of those tools where there's such a wide range of usage. There are some people that are experts and can do really complex very efficient things in excel, but there's a lot of people that treat excel like the proverbial hammer. Everything's a nail. So you try music sell to do everything from data cleaning to ability to get out your financial statements to, I don't know, machine learning. And it's probably not really the best tool for all of those things. I think that I thought really feels a nice niche and had the good fortune of using it for a lot of different types of activities in my business career and wonder talk about that in the podcast. You know, one thing that occurred to me, just thinking about the code that I've seen for visualizing data and so on with python compared to writing algorithms or web apps or something, it seems to me that the amount of python that you have to know and able to maybe import pandas load a CSV and then graph it. You almost hardly need to know python at all and it's more about knowing the APIs of the various visualization frameworks like matplotlib or seaboard, right? No, absolutely. I agree completely. I mean, you basically need to know, like you said, how to import and even backing up probably the most the biggest challenge is getting python set up on your system, depending on the system you have and everything and getting an environment all squared away. But once that's done, you're right, the data visualization libraries, no matter which one you choose, essentially, are knowing how to call functions. Exactly. And often seem to have their own little DSL domain specific language for what they've decided they're going to do, right? Yes, exactly. And I think that's part of the challenge is everybody thinks a different way. And sometimes a library might make a lot of sense to you, but other people it doesn't. And so that's a lot of where I think some of the challenges in the visualization landscape are trying to find that right API that makes sense for the actual business problems or visualization problems that you have and how it fits in your brain. So if people are coming from a business perspective and maybe excel is where they or their colleagues have been working. I definitely recommend people go check out episode 200 and then there was also ten tips to move from excel to python, a lot of common themes here. Yes, no. Normally at the beginning of the show, I asked people how they got into programming in python. I've got you to answer that at least once. Maybe twice, but probably a third time is not required. So just give us an update on what you've been up to.

"Know, I just said that. Hi Sean priest, how are you? I'm really well. Thank you, Steven Scott. Audio described movies. You got me interested. Yeah, well, I've got to say, you know, this is a really interesting project. I will put up front though, bad news if you live in Canada. Or the U.S. or New Zealand or Australia, or any other English speaking country quite frankly, because there's only available in the UK at the moment. It's just starting in the UK so I want to put out there. But the reason I bring it up is because I think it's a very interesting project and here on double tap, we're looking outside of our bubble here in Canada and we're focusing on the world. World. What we are, Steven, is global. We are internationale. That's right. That's right. We are double tap. Global. It's very global. It doesn't feel like the way I said it. Anyway, so yeah. Anyway, Joe, can we can? I did. Yes, glorious as ever. I spent it in my shed, so it's always a Paradise. So hang on. Actually, on that point. Hang on. Hang on. Hang on. Hang on. Considering it's just us too, talking amongst ourselves is kind of tricky, but I'll try. The voices in your head just talk with them. I see. My AirPods pro. Two, still in the box. Still have an open. You are a disk. Directly to me. Okay, I think I might, because to be fair, they might get a chance to be opened. And the good thing is that you'll have, you'd have lost them by now. Absolutely. Hey, I haven't lost those first gens yet. They are tried a few times, but no. No, I've still retained them. And you know what? The anxiety, the earbud loss hang on. Earbud loss anxiety. Well done, is getting less and less. I am not sure. But it's just takes that one walk into a lamp post or a hedge and bang. It's gone, isn't it? I can't face that. I can't face it, Steven. No, well, just a wheel. Simple as that. Problem solved. Okay. Thank you. There are really good though. They just work as Apple would say they do just actually work. Well, fantastic. I've been reading a lot of reviews. I haven't tested them myself. But I have been reading a lot of reviews that do say that these are the hidden gems from Apple's big event recently. Because especially these ones, they apparently the noise cancellation is way, way better. And they talk about what was it they called it, it was like a cabin pressure effect. That's what they described as in the version one AirPods pro. I kind of got that when I was on a plane or on a train, you would sometimes get that because or anywhere, frankly, where there was any kind of wind flying around you like, for example, when air conditioning is blown at you, you would sometimes hear that and it would kind of create this weird effect, like a cabin pressure. But that doesn't seem to be the case with the new ones. So I'm looking forward to my forthcoming journeys with them. Once I get by the box, so when I'm in planes trains and indeed automobiles, I should worry about my gen ones. And steal your gen twos, is that what you're saying? Yeah. Can I ask a question? Why is it that today we still call them planes and we still call them trains, but we no longer call automobiles automobiles. I do. I always call them, yes, I don't use the word cars. It's a vulgarity. Okay, fine. Excellent. Well, I see that you're being a little bit more up forefront these days because of I don't think that's the right phrase. But yeah, you're being up front. I think that's what I'm trying to see. Following our email from, have you recovered from that email from dean in New Zealand? Look, absolutely fine. I realized I'm not everyone's cup of tea. I am an odd fellow, so it's absolutely fine. I am wheezy. I am Motley. I do go. An awful lot. But you know what? I'm also adorable. So it's fine. Not everyone is going to cuddle me. You're not wrong. That's weird. You're not wrong there. Right, let's get to some feedback because we do have the chance to do with Eleanor zini, who is the person behind my son's cinema, we're going to be talking about that with Eleanor, as I say, is on the UK only at the moment. But they are hoping to expand this into other countries. I will say, just on that point, and I will bring this up with Eleanor shortly. But there was a Canadian version of this. There was a Canadian audio description project that tried to do, I think, very similar to what my sense cinema is doing. I don't know if it's still around, I'd like to know, but it was called tell me TV. And oh yes. Ah, I love that. That was so clever. I was really good. I remember interviewing the guy behind that and it was a really good idea, but as ever, it relies on the cooperation of movie studios and TV companies, and that's where it always not falls down necessarily, but becomes difficult. And that's why this new project, my sense cinema is all available in the UK at the moment, because it's all to do with rights, ultimately. They have to have the rights to be able to put this content out to the world, or at least other territories. So we'll talk to Eleanor zinho but that today. But I do want to get to some of your feedback. You've been sending it in in your droves. So let's get to the first message today as read for us by the lovely Laura cooker from EMI audio's guardian daily program. You'll know her voice from

A highlight from Ep267: Do You Know How To Carve Your Podcast Niche - Maya Chupkov

"So I had actually appeared on TV that day on a local TV station because it was international stuttering awareness day. So building a lot of momentum on launch day is so huge because it really just sets up the tone for the rest of the show. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard, and their show ends up costing the money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up podcaster? It's your host anime Adams and today's guest is a little bit different than some of the other guests that we'll have because many guests come onto the show and they started their podcast because they had a business and they basically wanted to just grow how much money they could make with the business. Maya Chubb has a full-time job. She wanted to be an advocate. She wanted to make something happen. She was passionate about and she may or may not seem like there's a, what do you call it? A nonprofit coming up and she's really excited where this might be taking her and it could perhaps become her only career. I'm looking at it the podcast right now. It's called proud stutter. And if you want to find it, you can easily type that in proud stutter. Or you can scroll down to the show notes, and you can get my full bio as well as the link to the podcast. So today we're going to find out a little bit more about her journey and I'll certainly ask a few questions about what she struggled with, what she's doing right and what she might be doing wrong so that you can learn from her mistakes or from the things that she's doing really well and is going well for her. This is fun, buckle up. Let's jump in. Hey Maya, it's really good to have you. So how long have you had the podcast? I see that you've got 41 ratings, which is a lot compared to the norm to the average, so that's really, And I'm wondering, did you get that done in one month? Or is it been ten years? Well, first, thank you, Adam so much for having me. And yeah, to answer your question. So proud stutter has kind of been in the works for almost two years now, actually. And so the planning process has been very comprehensive and thoughtful and all that stuff. And so I wanted to make sure I had a solid foundation before I jumped in and launched my first episode. So our first episode launched in October of 2021 on international stuttering awareness day, which is every year on October 22nd. And our trailer was released a few weeks before that. Okay. What made you so passionate about the topic? Stuttering has always been something I've hidden for most of my life. I'm 29 years old. And it was just something that was, there's a lot of shame around it. I didn't want people to know I had this thing about me, I just kind of wanted people to know me for me and not my stutter. And so I tried really hard in my entire life to hide it. You probably are thinking to yourself, oh, I don't hear her stutter. Starting is very misunderstood. It comes in many forms. So you might hear me start later, you might not. And I'm so passionate about it because there are so many people out there that stutter and are dealing with it isolated and alone. And so I'm so passionate about it because the power of podcasting can really help people feel less alone, whether you're doing it about stuttering or about something else. Even around, you know, trying to start a business that can be a really lonely process. And so having a podcast where you can learn and community with other folks that's such a powerful thing. Yeah. So there's this comedian. I don't know if you know who he is. I don't even remember his name. But ever since reels and shorts and who knows what these things are called, they've been coming out and there's this one comedian super duper funny

A highlight from 283. David Beckham Guild Deal, Star Wars Games, Ludwig xQc Juiced, Cyberpunk 2077 Comeback, Logitech Mobile Garbage

"I'm joined today by my Friends and co host, the honorable judge Jimmy burrata, Jeff the juice Cohen, and a very special guest this week, Nicole pike from YouGov, Nicole, welcome. What we do here if you're new is we cover the most pressing gaming and eSports topics news of the week, but we look at all of it through a business and C suite lens. We dissect, we analyze the business implications of everything happening in this industry. And best of all, on this live stream, we get to do it live with you guys. You get to get in our faces, ask questions, challenge us. It makes it that much more fun. We welcome you guys. If you're lurking, if you're watching this after the fact or listening to this after the fact, we know so many of you thousands of you do. We appreciate you also, but make sure next time we do this every Wednesday, two 30 p.m. Eastern Time. Bring a friend, bring a colleague, come for the live show. It's so much more fun. How is everyone doing this week? Nicole, great to have you here. Thanks for having me. I'm so excited. Ben's been snagging all of our YouTube appearances. So happy to be the one on this time. Ben has been hogging the appearances. Jeff, how you doing? Very good. Very good. I feel like I was not here last week, so it's good to be good to be back. I missed that I was in over in Europe. Or was there one? I think there was one last week. He has the one, I think. We did last. We did do one last week. The show never stops. I understand. I recorded from Dubai, so I don't think being in Europe is an excuse. But. Fair enough. Guys, we have a lot of stuff to get through this week. I do want to tease the podcast episode this week. We had Liam savares from Bautista, but TCO actually a cool company. I would call them a competitor to like a stream elements or maybe a streamlabs. But it's interesting because their owned by optic gaming. And so they serve streamers, content creators, and eSports teams with like monetization and overlays and kind of all the stuff that a stream element does. They have sort of this parent company that's an eSports team, which is cool. Because they get to test stuff with optics. So interesting conversation with Liam from Batista definitely recommend to check that out that will be out this week. Let's jump into some news guys. Let's jump into David Beckham and sports. Let's start with that news because I thought this was interesting. I think we were critical in the beginning of the deal. There was a lot of money that they were paying to David Beckham. And now I feel like this has fixed itself. And I'm a big proponent of what's happened here. The headline here is David Beckham renegotiates delegation deal with gildea sports club. The gist of this is they had this 15 and a quarter $1 million deal between David Beckham and kill these sports that was going to be paid over 5 years. Obviously David Beckham was going to promote Gil Lee sports. What has happened is guild has successfully, it seems renegotiated the deal where basically he's only going to get half of that instead of 15. He's getting 7 and a half. Again, paid over 5 years. What's interesting is Beckham is getting 20% of guilty sports sponsorship and merchandising revenue. So assuming he brings money to the table, it's good for gildea sports and it's good for David Beckham. I'm curious what you guys think of a deal like this being renegotiated seems like a clear win for guild here because there's a lot of there's less money out of their pocket and more upside for them. But I would argue good deal for David Beckham also, right? Does anyone think this was maybe not such a good deal for David Beckham? We're all quiet here. I think scared to go first. I'm happy to jump into it. You know, it's interesting because when you usually talk about sports deals with athletes like Beckham, who here is more of a brand ambassador, you know, there's risks of injury and guaranteed money upfront money is always their primary focus and concern. You hear it all the time in the off season. Again, risk of injury competitive players in athletes less so brand ambassadors here. I think this has tremendous upside. The risk to me is time and how much time David Beckham has to push guild eSports as opposed to anything else that he's involved in. But if he took the deal, then he thinks he has the time to make that 20% in excess or realize a value of that additional 7 and a half million. So I think he's betting on himself. I think guild is favorably converting him or mobilizing him, I think, with a lot of incentive 20% is not a small amount. And the guaranteed 7.5, if your Beckham 7.5 and 15, there's not a lot of difference there to you, right? So the potential, as well as the legacy and the brand that he's growing to your point, Paul, I think these are straight wins all around. The only concern I would have had would be his time to devote here and he clearly thinks he has that. Yeah, and it's super interesting to see this come off the back of the announcement that guild brought on sky as a sponsor. And I think one of the biggest European sponsorship deals in eSports for any sports team to date. So interesting that when surprised me if those were interconnected in some way, I also feel like there was a lot of backlash when it was first announced what has initial deal looked like. You guys had your thoughts on it, but just more generally. And so it's also maybe a bit of a case of what we see a lot in the eSports where fans speak up. They speak up on something as they think it should be and all of a sudden the org seems to realign about. Any coincidence here, Gil D sports making better decisions. Now that they're working with you, gov.

A highlight from Introducing conversation design into a dev-led organisation with Workday

"Hello, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Welcome to the UX world. I'm your host game Sims. Now I feel like I'm really branded up today. I've got like a view X world hoodie on. I've got a yellow T-shirt underneath. There's a video on the unsigned. And there's a yellow kind of mic of stuff. It was like overdoing the brand situation today. Which is intense. But there you go. Anyway, today we are going to be talking about a really interesting topic, which is very close to my heart. Being a creative at heart, but also having a lot of experience working with development teams and technical teams. We're going to be discussing how to take a design led approach and a design first approach into a typically development and technical led organ organization and I'm joined today by Colin carnahan, who is the senior conversational designer at work there. Colin, welcome and thank you for joining me. Thank you. Thank you. I should have worn some yellow too to rep the UX world. To represent exactly a bit disappointed, it won't lie, my jogging. So I should be standard memo stuff before these podcasts go away. But yeah, no, thank you for joining me. I really appreciate it over from Seattle. Yep, I'm based out of Seattle. I'm loving it. It's raining right now. Typical Seattle weather. I think this shares so much similarity is with the UK I think Seattle in general for Maria. But yeah, no, nice one. Thank you. So yeah, we're definitely definitely looking forward to getting to this conversation. We will do that in just one second. But first, I want to give you your final reminder because I think this is actually this may be the last podcast that we do before the voice summit in Arlington. I don't think we've got one next week. There's a few things going on next week, which I'll tell you about, but no podcast. And so this is the last opportunity I get to tell you about the view X at voice event in Arlington on the 11th of October. It is going to be all about contact center automation. We've brought a whole bunch of interesting case studies to the stage. It's an in person event at The Voice summit. We've got a whole track there and you're going to hear from Landry's restaurants in hospitality. You're going to hear from who else is there. We've got Florida blue, massive health insurance company, talking about how they've implemented a visual IVR omnichannel assistant. There's a whole bunch of stuff going on. It's going to be absolutely fantastic. And if you want to be there and be a part of it, then you need to go to voice summit dot AI and you can use the promo code V UX 20 to get 20% off. The second thing I'll tell you about is the webinar that I am doing with what voltage and one reach next week on Thursday and that is all about demystifying conversational AI. You may have seen the bullshit man newsletter that ascent out recently, which was essentially there's some stuff going on. I'm interested to get your thoughts on this column as well. There's things going on in the kind of industry and landscape that I just feel are kind of adding too much fuel to a fire that's already being hyped up quite substantially. And it can be very difficult for people to understand what on earth we're talking about. What is conversational now? What is it? But what's the best way to go about implementing it? What's the realistic results that you can kind of get from it? What's hype versus reality? And there's just lord of that stuff going on. And so in this webinar next week with 101 reach, we are demystifying conversationally. We're going to cut to the truth of the matter and basically separate the wheat from the chaff to advise you properly on how you can effectively go about setting up your strategy and implementing conversation a lot of dimension at your business without the hype and without all of the frills and bullshit that goes with it. So go to vue X dot world slash voyage if you want to find out more already registered that's vu X dot world forward slash vonage vol GE. And that's it. There you go. That's the promise of over with. What's your thoughts calling generally about the kind of whole industry at the moment and how you see what's hype versus reality?

Mandating Vaccines Shouldn't Be a Restaurant Worker's Job

"So a lot of places across the us have faced pushback. Just for requiring masks indoors but a full on vaccine mandate feels even more controversial. Why are these these taking the step. So city leaders and experts are hoping that requiring proof of vaccination to enter restaurants gyms an indoor places will just encourage people to get vaccinated and ultimately stopped the spread of cove in nineteen other countries that have instituted similar requirements for showing vaccination indoors have seen vaccination rates. Go up this happened. In france this happened in italy and even though there was pushed back to these policies a lot of people just found it more convenient to actually get the shot and which city was the first to make this move to impose these requirements. New york city was the first city in the us to make an announcement that they were going to do. Something like this is a miraculous place for literally full of wonders. And if you're vaccinated all that's going to open up to you you'll have the key you can open the door but if you're unvaccinated unfortunately you will not be able to participate many things. That's the point. We're trying to get across so now in new york you basically need to show you've gotten at least one shot to go to an indoor establishment so at the gym and entertainment venue. It's gonna take a while for people in the city to get used to this. So the policy went into effect on august seventeenth. But there's sort of this weird grace period so the enforcement of the policies not gonna start until the middle of september. But you know it's not just new york now. New orleans has vaccine passport program in san francisco put in place a vaccine passport system that started on august twentieth new orleans enforcement for their system actually began last week. It's also worth noting that not all of the. Us cities that are doing this have the same exact requirements. So san francisco is requiring proof of vaccination meaning that you actually have to show evidence that you got both shots. If you're getting a two dose vaccine while new orleans you just need to show that you got one dose or or negative cova test in order to actually get into one of these than us and you know. We should expect more of these requirements. Potentially pop up los angeles is considering adding a mandate as well on these could also change especially as you know kids become eligible to get vaccinated as well right now. These don't apply for people who can actually get the vaccine.
