AI and the Evolution and Automation of Live Chat - with LivePerson CEO Robert LoCascio

"So rob. I want to dive in to the future of a and chat in the enterprise and the little bit of your journey there. But before i even do even ryan this company for quite some time when you guys started online chat in the ninety s companies public firm for twenty years. Here when you look to your business something. Like i don't know how many seventy or eighty million conversations you're handling in any given month when you look down at your business tried to find where. Ai could layer value for your clients. How did you think through that process. Because it seems like that's almost an endless There's almost an endless number of answers. They're basically looking at the data center. We do about seventy eighty million conversation month. I kinda you know that data we could take and look at how are use cases around banking and telco and and and retail and healthcare. These are big customer bases. Come from these verticals. How can we automate those conversations and so we basically just dove into the data we aggregated. The data looked at across customer. And we could see that there were patterns that made really good conversations. So that drove is to say okay. Let's build a host of tools and a new platform called conversational cloud in which we could enable large enterprises market customers to scale their conversation. Automate them and with the onset of covid the there was a massive massive impact contact centers the contact center agents help and nope he was there. They couldn't take calls so so they went home now. They're taking calls there and so there's been a massive drive to automation now because having someone work at home and answer calls just not the way to go. How do you automate that through a digital experience. That's really what's happened and obviously with the onset of covid firms like yourself or now in this position to potentially catch the opportunity to major way when you look at serve. What's potentially automated man even there so much to get into. I mean there's for each individual business that you work with you know maybe a work in with a one. Eight hundred flowers may be. You're working with us. The citibank guys work with some of the biggest companies in america here. The use cases are relatively bespoke And i know you. You worked on building a tool. That's at least understandable for nontechnical people. We definitely need subject matter. Experts to layer context and to structure or flow flows for these conversational systems. But you determine what the bounding box would be because even that feels feels endless and you need to kind of focus in somewhere yes we. We're all this under the header of commerce. And i fundamentally believe that conversation. Commerce is going to be the next leg of digital so we had ecommerce and now we're shifting see commerce and e commerce is is a very interesting thing when you think about like show up at a website and basically every website looks the same right. I mean top nab. Yeah data and google set those rules instead of you don't do that. We won't index you and that's why everything looks the same so what you're seeing is digital each brand doesn't have its own personality now with conversational commerce. You develop your own personality and you develop your own way to engage your consumers too like chapultepec. We had obviously during covid. What happened was people didn't want to go in and get a burrito and make They don't want to sit there for five minutes. Make freedom so chapultepec turn to us said we want to build an automation that somebody could come into their mobile device to any messenger front facebook. I message app and we want to configure a burrito and or whatever they want and they built. We built this Automation called pepper. It's called pepper and you can communicate with pepper. And then you show up at the door and the handed to you. And so that's the poultry. One we've got David's bridal which also people didn't want to come and people get married but do you want to go and sit in the store and try and addressing the one of the largest bridal companies in the world. We automated looking at different things for your body type for your style making an appointment. So you're the only one that's in that store. Don't have a crowd in the store. We built all that. This is just examples during kovin but every one of our customers get the ability to create a conversational experience. That's unique to them. And that's what makes commerce Yeah i i could certainly see the argument that linear text back and forth actually has potentially less less opportunity for really robust customization than you know. Really fancy dancy website. But but i get where you're where you're coming from. I think that there is like a. There's a certain flavor of the brand that you get from talking that maybe you wouldn't get from from a website and obviously what you're saying is that we can tailor that of course with a website. There's a lot we can do with color and features and video and whatever but certainly there's personalization on the conversation side. I could kind of see arguments on both sides there with respect to working with these big brands again. You're you're dropping some pretty pretty big names here. Names of almost everybody listening in has heard of what does it look like to set up these unique systems for them because obviously chipotle's use case which by the way feels very accessible. The number of burritos you can build is not unlimited right as opposed you guys work with delta airlines. The number of things i can complain about to my airline is. There's probably two dozen. You could tackle off the cuff. But but there's gotta be another four hundred that are just we're handing this to a human being but cipolla feels. Wow that feels like almost like dominoes. Chat bot was pretty popular. Winning hundred flowers was doing some stuff. Because there's only so many purchase options but when you go into different clients you got big airlines. You got these restaurant chains. What's that process of really working with them. Because there's got to be a bespoke build out part. You got your core platform you guys are able to use. You have a tremendous amount of data and a lot of staff obviously which it looked like to hop into these big brands and build out. Something that really drives value for our platform conversational cloud. We really broken into three areas in and around the three areas of need when you're looking at scale automation. One is the intent. We called intent manager in its technology that ingests all the conversations and then organizes the intense. So we talk about intense anti-business. What is it consumers. They haven't intention to do something with you. They want to buy something. They wanna customer care question answered and that's an intention and we call that technology intent so we organized the intense and it turns out as we all know. We all asking and attentively. So i may ask a bill differently than you do. But the technologists differences aggregate them. And then what you get to see a list of all the intense in your business. And what are the contents and where the mid level. I'm usually what we say. Let's go solve the top intense bam one and is thirty percent of all the voice calls. You're having

Chelsea from Forever Alone?

"Meadow. I had somewhat recently been partnered up again matthew. My current husband and he came with a whole new group of people that included single men the decent single men for the first time in a long time kind of a lot of them. So i'm like surveying his friends. They're all hot. they're all interesting and one of them was named brian and he was am band with matthew and that band played in our basement every sunday. So one sunday just casually invite chelsea over. When i know the band is playing that a casualty. I'm just making great dinner. Which i never do and then i casually invite only chelsea brian to stay for dinner and then bam. They're dating they're together. I am the matchmaker of nobody streams brian when he and chelsea met he was recovering from alcohol addiction and he had been sober for a while and then he was not soper and the alcohol in their relationship into a throttle and as much as i wanted to be the world's best matchmaker it was not working. It was really hard on both of them. They loved each other but it was also so hard it was agonizing this tape from the end of that second episode I mean. I think it's hard because i i hear a lot of people will say like. Oh i just don't have time for that like i just wouldn't have any patients with that. That does seem to put the addiction into a category of it being irrational behavior on the addicts part and by that you mean a rational a rational rat irrational. Yeah because it is completely irrational. And i think that that's why people that don't suffer from addiction get so frustrated because we see whether it's you know an alcoholic in my case or you know anyone with any sort of addiction like how do you get yourself all the way to the liquor store and you know get the barrel get home and still you know like think it's a good idea but it's just it goes completely beyond reason and it's so frustrating to not be able to us extremely rational person. I would say like. Oh you're very rich like to like rationalize this you know We'll just don't right like the key is that you don't drink right the ki as it were that easy then. No one would have any problems if the key is just. Don't do it right like and it just seems like. Oh it's like some sort of self control issue but it really seems to go beyond that. In a way that i'd just will never be able to comprehend what are like what are you gonna do. I think that's like the million dollar question and that's what makes the situation so hard because there's just really no right or wrong answer like people say like do whatever makes you feel good follow. Whatever you know is going to make you feel good and it's like none of the decisions are going to make me feel good. None of this like i just feel like i'm stuck in this damned if you do damned if you don't what are your options right now I think my options are to just keep going and not change anything And just keep hoping everyday that it happens. That it's the last time or i leave him and or something like in between it's always something in between our choices in life and love are just never as clear as we need them to be not when they're in the moment right now. Brian chelsea have broken up. Some you're cheering. Some view are doing. Some of you are the personification of a motor. Khan shar guy or the emoji. Grimace smile which i believe was modeled after me because this is such an impossible situation in so many ways

Mara naomi thank you so much for joining me. Welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having parlor excited to be here now. I have to say it's the first time since the pandemic that. I actually have seen two people on a couch. He can't see them as a podcast air literally sitting next to each other. And i'm like oh my gosh human contact. What does that link that. We're gonna jump in. And i'm going to ask each of you to scam your resume late. I can start. I moved to new york in two thousand six the same year that twitter came about so it was basically right when socially news coming on the map. I started at the weather channel and quickly realized that. Tv advertising was was changing in a major way and so got the opportunity to actually be this seventh employee of the first boutique. Social media marketing agency called attention. I got to be part of fast. Growing startup changed the way brands. Figure out how to adjust to this new world. Really connect with people over social and it was there that i started offering pro bono work for not for profits to use these new tools as a way to connect with people around their impacting ultimately get more donors or funding or whatever. It may be that. Let me do something. That was a client and became really passionate about what they were building and actually joined do something as director of marketing and later became the chief marketing officer there and was there for five years helping to scale the organization from zero to five million members and help young people. Gen z and millennials Find more ways to get involved in social action and it was there that i met morrisseau always been really passionate about how he used the new tools at our disposal to break the stigma build connections and raise awareness for the things that matter snap those fishing sam. I think my career started as a side hustle very similar to shine. I paid my way through college. I was the first in my family to go to college. In part of how i paid for college was so many a lot of creative side. hustles engaged. I always found a way to turn those into resume. Builders so i worked for current tv and worked with twitter early on in some of the early social networks as an intern. Part of what. I was doing was handing out swag on campus but i also turn those into internships air quotes that allowed me to get into a couple of really powerful opportunities that actually were really focused on getting more people of color to jobs in new york in in a digital internet. Mtv networks said learned a lot about digital in in a different way. What is the look like to engage people in kind of involve a platform. It started on tv and then went to a start up. Had a really really a fantastic time. One of the first employees at a fashion startup. That was a joint venture with american express. I learned a lot about what it looks like to merge kind of older brands with a new emerging brand that was very creative and oversaw their digital media from media to member experience and similar to me. i found myself just really leaning towards impacts and wanting to know how i could make a deeper impact in the world heard about do something applied online. Met naomi I'm so in and went to do something to lead their their mobile engagement. In so at the time that meant tax messaging and actually similar to naomi we partner together to show their member userbase from zero to five million users shirley using text messaging and it led us to to spend some more time together to know each other in an ultimate to start shine when a shine so shiners leading self care app. We make it easy and inclusive for you to start daily self care ritual. That's going to be relevant to your world and fun facts. Sweeper actually honored as one of the best apps of twenty twenty by apple. We'd like low key heavy award like right behind us. You know we're so pumped about it. But i think particularly this year it's mental lot because our mission has been so rooted in inclusivity representation and to see this year's intersection of the pandemic the uprising for racial justice fee. Election the us and how he's been able to directly address that head on in our content every diet Through something we call the daily shine which is really we almost a podcast meets meditation. It's recorded fresh every day. And so you're going to hear meditation. That's relevant to your world every single day and so for those reasons it's it's led to this being such a powerful year for the company. Where so many people are recognizing that they need to support often for the first time and that they need that support to see them and to be inclusive and to recognize what they're going through in this very specific time and they're very specific experiences.

How streaming services and COVID-19 upended Hollywood

"Coronavirus is up ended. A lot of things about our lives but few industries has seen as drastic a change as the entertainment business with the ride streaming services and social begging the question. What happens the movie theaters a broader. Chang this is your daily charge joining us way to this. Transformation is our media expert johnson. Welcome john so let's start with a recap of the year. We saw the launch the number of streaming services peacock. Hbo max and then of course stalwarts like netflix. Continue to dominate. Pop culture with shows like tiger king in queen's gambit. How did the so-called street war shakeout in twenty twenty. We saw breakaway successes and truly epic failures over the course of the last year among all the new services that launched in the last fourteen months or so nothing compares to disney plus the subscribers that a service brings in that's the currency of success for streaming services. And no matter how you look at it. Disney plus blew away all other new competitors completely out of the water disney hoped to have between sixty million and ninety million subscribers within five years and it nearly hit the top of that. Its most obstacle optimistic expectation at nearly beat that within one year not five. It's at eighty six point eight million subscribers at the end of its first year and then on the flip side you had these failures quickly. Which entered twenty twenty swinging it was booking super bowl commercials. It was making it rain. All over hollywood paying stars tons of money to make these short form Cereal movies and chapters and Daily essentials and other things that if you could see me i'm making all these little air quotes but it totally flopped and it announced that it was completely shutting down just seven months after launching. So we've seen some really legendary story play out in the streaming world this year definitely and in between though we had a couple of those services. Hbo max peacock which all launched as well and lose a little bit quieter for them up until the end of the hbo. Max how did those two services fair out when they were they launched didn't do as well as disney plus but nothing has done is walls just pause. You really. nothing else compares to what they've been doing you know if if disney plus had it had the insane year that it did their launches would look you know pretty good all right. Hbo max is at you know. I have to check the numbers. But it's at i think. Eight point six million accounts and peacock has more than that because he got chasm free tier. Hbo max you have to pay fifteen dollars a month to access it or b a each b. o. l. subscriber That has a deal with. Hbo backs in order to get it. But the point is you know. They're doing fine sean. It's compared to a truly extraordinary. Unexpected success like disney plus that. It looks like they're really doing poorly and to be fair to you know. Hbo max with its high price. Point the fact that the fact that it was kind of a Confusing proposition two people and The fact that it wasn't on roku or fire tv the two most popular devices for months that also crimped it in particular its appeal. you know. They're like thirty some million people that can have. Hbo max basically for free because they are. They're already paying for hbo and of those were at or still at below ten million accounts. Right we are back so it's definitely struggled in some senses yet. It will disney plus held by a number of big cultural milestones the hamilton earlier this year. Of course mandalorian is back more baby love even new law which at that dollar premium charged pretty well. Hbo max is poised to have its potential big moment tomorrow with the release of what am nine hundred eighty four. I'm curious what you think. The impact is there and as we sort of look for. You know how that's going to help set the way movies are released. Well it cer- certainly gonna superchargers interest in hbo coupled with the fact that it max not only is releasing wonder woman On christmas day the same day that it's available to see in theaters on those that are open It's also making it. Its entire slate. The warner brothers. Entire slate of movies for the entirety of next year are going to be released the same way where there. It's available to stream on. Hbo max the same day. It's in theaters for a period of one month. So people have one month to to sign up for talks log into it if you already have. It watched like some of the you know wonder woman. Nineteen eighty-four dude matrix. Four tons of like huge movies and smaller ones that are also heading to spin. It looks like that's ever happened before people are really excited about it. It's gonna supercharge interest in the streaming service. But it also means that you know. It's kind of a crossing of the rubicon For decades theaters have had a seventy at least seventy five days where they get exclusive access to new movies and of course during the pandemic with these widespread theater closures senate as being closed a lot of companies have tried to figure out. How can you can't have a seventy five day window or something is only in theaters. When there aren't any theatres open and the ones that are people. Don't feel safe going to so we've seen a lot of experimentation about. What do we do in this situation. But this move by warner brothers. Hbo max are. They're making so many of these really big budget movies available. What's known as day and date or it's available for home video streaming the same day that it's in theaters. That's that's a point of no return like things are never. They might not look exactly like that once. The coronavirus and the pandemic are in our rear view window. But it's never going to be theaters and the transit. Never going to be exactly the same again. So the reaction will imagine for folks out there who are locked down this is. This is good news but not everyone has created this with open arms. Right number of directors filmmakers actors have been up in arms. Or who's been sort of speaking out against this. Practice will certainly christopher nolan. Who is a longtime warner brothers director. He's bamed all of his big films with warner brothers and most recently His tenant was released by warner brothers and not partly led to this decision. That warner brothers needed to figure out something other than purely theatrical premieres for films tenant was released it did tentative fine overseas it did reasonably well but in the us tanks. Like i he nolan is is a faint is fame Famously defensive of the theatrical experience. He's one of those ought autour filmmakers who treasures that big dark room and the hush crowd gasping all the same time like. That's that's is cocaine or whatever and he didn't want to give that up and they didn't make him and they released tenet where it had an exclusive period in theaters and it s than sixty million dollars at the box office. That you know. It's standard for one of his movies to make one hundred million plus in the us at the box office so the fact that they saw that it's just not tenable Just not tenable to have this sort of theatrical this preciousness around theatrical release at least during the pandemic they went a different route they. There's is the most extreme that any studio has announced so far a lot of other studios are trying to be a little more compromising and their decision was made largely without consultation with filmmakers. Which you know. It's one thing to up end. These long held norms. Some of which a lot of filmmakers really treasure like christopher nolan really treasures this theatrical the experience and protecting it but it's not always it's it's the medium not the message sometimes in the fact that they sort of dropped this bomb on these people without with wonder woman. There's a lot of consultation with those filmmakers but the entire slate like they couldn't reach out because people talk in hollywood if they reached out to some people get all over town so they basically maybe with a little bit of notice tried to get it out to some people but essentially shut. Drop this bomb on the filmmaker community and that in addition to the fact that it was such a dramatic change from what's baked into contracts and what people expected is it led to a really huge backlash and we're going to see if they're going to get sued or get sued. You might have to walk back many things. They might have to take something that were on the two thousand twenty one slate off the twenty twenty one slates and they don't fall under this so called hybrid strategy. That's something we're going to play out next year. Well curious if this is a a one off thing or is this this pandemic related that twenty one is like twenty twenty a bit of a lost year as be struggled to kind of get back enormously but once you get past it go back to normal. You mentioned the crossing the rubicon. How do you think things the changes that were saying. Now my kind of play out the long term or will there be more of a hybrid approach like what one of the things look like once we get to some semblance of normalcy again. It's never going back to the way. It was like the way the seventy five day ninety day window. That theaters get new movies. That's not coming back even after the pandemic because i think consumers for a really long time have wanted more options. Especially i mean. Young consumers don't understand even older consumers. Don't understand why you have to wait that long to choose where you get to watch your movie you know. Like the seventy five and ninety day window and theater followed by the dvd followed by online vod online rentals followed by a pay one window followed by a pay to win. Like there's going it's going to change but we can say for sure. Theaters are not going to be able to count on that sort of cushion. Seventy five day to ninety day window getting all new movies. They can't count on that because too many of these studios are owned by media companies that are also launching streaming services. I'm really want them to succeed. It's not just warner brothers on by. At and t. and also owns hbo. Max that is playing and experimenting with these new formats like you mentioned milan. That's disney disney decided disney of all studios. They build their franchises on theatrical release. That means a lots of them. But they're still even toying with things like you said they released hamilton which is supposed to be a big screen movie. Next year they released it more than a year in advance and put a totally free on disney plus for their big budget stuff. They're putting it on disney plus with this. What's not calling premier access which is basically when you pay a thirty dollar extra fee and you get movies like milan that you can stream day and date same day as in theaters next year. They're going to do that with riot. Dragon but even with dizzy. They've said they haven't defined what they're gonna do with marvel movies. It looks like they're gonna give marvel movies. Which are you know. Some of their biggest blockbusters that they still have on the slate coming up. They're going to give them some time in the theaters because they know how important that is to building a franchise having that sort of mythic proportion in a theater is really important to a marvel movie whether or not black widow comes to streaming a lot earlier than it would have before in previous you know. In the olden days. A year ago it would've taken about six months to nine months for any theatrical disney movie to make the disney plus. Maybe that'll shrink. What we do know is that theaters are not going to be able to count on a seventy five day. Window consumers are going to have a lot more options about win and where they get to watch new movies and the theatrical spirits is going to have to change you know without having that really special treatment that kid gloves treatment of getting seventy five day window. You're going to see theaters having to adapt offering more food upgrading. The experience of going there They're gonna have to experiment with a lot of different payment models even maybe The point is movie. Theaters haven't really had to adapt or innovate for decades. Because i've had this protected window and that protected window is going to change. But it's never coming back the way it was and the theater. Experience is going to change too so that change is thrust upon them and they're forced to adapt. Do you think theaters are doomed to failure are they are they they are they screwed ultimately. Because i frankly i missed the theater experience but i can't see myself going back for while and so we'll we'll theater survive long enough to be able to adapt and change. Yeah the are going to survive like they just won't be as many and they won't look the same as they did. Which you know a natural thing movies have been around cinemas have been around for a really long time. It's one of. Its basically the first mass mass visual audio visual media You don't have theaters like the depression-era people's palaces anymore. we don't go to theaters. That look like someplace that would have a metropolitan opera in. That's what happened in the twenties thirties. We don't have that anymore because things change television happened. So that's going to be another change but what you're gonna see the the gigantic megaplexes. Amc's the cinemark probably going to get smaller because they can't if you don't have that exclusive access to something that people can choose whether or not they're watching it on that big screen or watching on their home screen where people are going to be able to. They're going to choose to watch it on their home screen and so you don't just need as many movie screens in america anymore. So we're going to see theaters close. We might see some chains completely. Go out of business. The thing that will be interesting to see is how smaller chains mom-and-pop theaters you know the local art house theater. The smaller chains like alamo draft house. We're already seeing that. Those are those are the theaters in cinemas that are more likely to adopt because they don't have a sort of mcdonald's mass market Happy meal mentality. they're catering to a local community. They're more likely to know the sort of things that would bring people into their theater if it's more than just movies it's easier for them to pivot in. Adopting alamo draft house was one of the first chains so to speak. That offered this rent a whole theater option. Which has become more popular during the pandemic instead of having to spend three hundred to a thousand two more dollars to rent entire theater. It's like look we can't can barely show this to people because of restrictions. Why don't you rent the theater for a hundred bucks and you can bring fifteen of your closest friends and you can all like sit apart from each other and you can be pretty confident that we're going to be sanitizing it because we don't or trying to stuff seats because we have to stuff seats. They were the first ones to innovate in that sense. And we start to adopt adapt that model so no like theaters. Theaters aren't going to die. They're just gonna look a lot different in the future

James Harden’s Trade List Now Includes Bucks & Heat

"Mandy. James harden saga changing by the minute. The latest report this morning from sham saints. Pardon has the bucks the milwaukee bucks in the miami among his preferred trade destinations. Along with the seventy sixers and the brooklyn nets crisper starts sticking around with us. What do you make of this latest report. Well look i. I said earlier. When nick brought up the miami heat that makes a lot of sense. James harden in miami and that organization with those players around him. The ones they'd be able to keep. I think that would be a tough team to be in the eastern conference milwaukee. Look any time you bring in a player like james harden ninety percent of the time when you bring in that type of superstar. You're going to have to work some things out. You're gonna have to work out. How he fits in with your other star so we might look on the services they do he. John is really fit. But i would give it a try. If i'm the milwaukee bucks giannis is on board with it. If i could get james ordinaire look. I don't think they can. But if i could i'd give it a try broussard. Him including the milwaukee bucks on his list he might as well as included. The milwaukee brewers on his list. It's impossible they gave us their picks ken's so we can cross that off. It's a great idea but it's not happening. The he could happen now. I don't think the he would give up bam out of bio. But i'm sure they'd give up tyler hero. The future picks that aren't encumbered already. You'd have included in order to make the salaries work and some other stuff. You probably include kendrick nunn. Who had a decent rookie season. So i think the heater a real possibility. But what i think this does is actually finally moved. Daryl morey and i say that brandon because darryl has known the nets do not present a real threat in this trade deal because they do not have the assets to make this work. The heat cooled. And if he's going to expand his teams to include milwaukee in miami he might expanded even further. So right now daryl. I feel like has been holding back offering ben simmons which i think would get the deal done assuming tillman for titas and said you're not allowed to trade daryl morey because he's mad at him for leaving the team but i think all of a sudden this is causing real meetings in miami and real meetings in philadelphia. I think in milwaukee. They're like i mean we can call a meeting. But unless you're in love with dante jones. Oh i don't know what to tell ya. Milwaukee to me is not a realistic path but miami is a possibility even if they won't include out a bio brandon.

The History of the Internet

"To begin with we as a species. We've been trying to categorize an attain all the knowledge. We haven't to a database of sorts for a very long time right so for example in seventeen twenty. Eight ephraim champions globe maker publishes the cyclopes or a universal dictionary of arts and sciences. It is the earliest attempt to link by association all the articles in an encyclopedia or more generally all the components of human knowledge. He wrote in his preface quote this. We endeavored to attain by considering the several matters. E topics not only absolutely and independently as to what they are in themselves but also relatively or as they respect each other. So we've been thinking about like how to how to access knowledge how to obtain information and organize it in in a in a way so that more people can access it quicker classic enlightenment. Classic enlightenment am my right So in one thousand. Nine hundred belgian lawyers and bibliographer paul outlet and on revilla contain proposed a central repository for the world's knowledge organized by the universal decimal classification. It was called the mondays And it would eventually house. More than fifteen million index cards one hundred thousand files and millions of images and in nineteen thirty four outlet further advanced his vision for the radiated library in which people worldwide will place telephone calls to his quote mechanical collective brain. And we'll get back information as tv signals. So this was a theory. This is something that they thought could get off the ground then in nineteen thirty six h. g. wells first predicts what's called the world brain He wrote the whole human memory can be and probably short time. We'll be made accessible to every individual time is close at hand when any student in any part of the world will be able to sit with his projector in his own study at his or her convenience to examine any book. any document in an exact replica. Study accurate it's pretty accurate so the world brain was to be a central repository of the world's knowledge organized by complex taxonomy invented by wells. So clearly there has been a precedent for desiring this kind of thing. So the concept of data communication or transmitting data between two different places through an electromagnetic medium such as radio or an electric wire predates the introduction of the first computers right. Such communication systems were typically limited to point to point communication between two end devices. Like semaphore lines are telegraph systems and telex machines so these can be considered early precursors to this kind of communication and the telegraph in the late. Nineteenth century was the first fully digital communication system. So that's just cool trivia fact it been a deeply so up until about nineteen sixty computers were huge unwieldy and self contained. You could use them as a tool. But you couldn't necessarily make them talk to each other or transmit information across any distances using them but there were a bunch of people working towards making that happen so a man named christopher stray cheesy who became the oxford university is first professor of computation filed a patent application for time sharing in february of nineteen fifty nine in june that year. He gave a paper called time sharing enlarge fast computers at the unesco information processing conference in paris where he passed the concept onto to lick lighter of mit like lighter vice president at both derek and newman inc and they discuss a computer network in his january. Nineteen sixty paper called man computer symbiosis so a quote from that is a network of computers connected to one another by wideband communication lines which provide the functions of present day libraries together with anticipated advances in information storage. And retrieval and other symbiotic functions. So super like great reading. You know just like pull it up right. Now read it. Yeah take it to the beach. You know something really exciting. So paul baran then publishes reliable digital communications systems using unreliable network repeater nodes the first of a series of papers that proposed the designed for distributed networks using packet switching. And we'll talk about that for a second. Method used to this day to transmit information over the internet and then a little later. Donald davies the. Uk's national physical laboratory or n. P. l. independently developed the same idea. So there's a little bit of like linear here So while baron used the term message blocks for his units of communication davies. Use the term packets so i was like what the hell is packet. Switching so packet switching is essentially and i. I used the the metaphor of of charlie and the chocolate factory. Ok you know mike. Tv how said the tv you're broken up into little pieces gets reassembled on the other side. That's basically what packet switching is with. Data the pieces get sent over in smaller pieces because they can travel over greater distances being smaller and then they get reassembled on the other side so that's packet switching s perfect. I'm gonna get a lot of emails. Okay so. Jc are lick lighter so jc are lick lighter. He was known as either. Jc are like friends. Call them lick several shame. I guess it's shorter than say j. C. r. guess so or just like yourself jim anyway He became the director of the newly-established information processing techniques office. Or the ipo within the us. Defense department's advanced research projects agency or darpa. So then robert. Taylor becomes the director of the information processing techniques office. Pto in nineteen sixty six and he intended to realize lighters idea of an interconnected networking system so he proposes to his boss the arpanet so the advanced research projects agency net which is a network that would connect the different projects that arpaio was sponsoring so a way to like keep everything together and at the time each project has its own specialized terminal and unique set of user commands so in order to talk to each terminal you had to physically go to the computer terminal that only spoke to that individual one so he was like what if we just had one computer that connected to everything and that was arpanet basically bam bam so there were like great. I love this. So they awarded. Arba awarded the contract to build this network to bolt beranek and newman or bbn technologies. And they're involved in the early stages of the internet in a major way and so all mentioned them like a bunch of times so the first arpanet link was established between the university of california los angeles and the stanford research institute at twenty to thirty hours on october. Twenty ninth nineteen. Sixty-nine the first message was the word log in that's boring. I know it's super boring computer guys. I was necessary to jump. It wasn't the first text message. Merry christmas oh. I don't know maybe it was being at least that s something. Yeah or what. Does it come here. I need you. That's the one for the telephone log in. Yeah right fine. at least it's easy to remember. Yeah i message sent over. The internet is the message lock-in so sent over arpanet between the network node at ucla and a second one at sri. So leonard kline rock of ucla said at the ucla and they typed in the l. and asked sri by phone if they received it got the l. Came the voice reply. Ucla typed in the. Oh asked if they got it and received got the oh. ucla then typed in the g. And the darn system crashed boy the beginning on the second attempt. It worked fine so by the end of that year. Four host computers connected together in the initial arpanet so this was like the beginning of of the end. Basically

"Tiktok can what what the hell was. Is this all just kabuki theatre like was there any substance to this at all. Do we expect this to never be brought up again. What do you think well recording this. On december fourth which i think is a new deadline for for for the tiktok deal to go through. It's pretty fascinating. Because obviously the trump administration did not really care about tiktok. it was clearly a it was always evident. That was a a thing. They thought was beneficial to them to talk about politically And now they've moved onto to imaginary fraud. And there's no one there to push this through but there are thoughtful people who say yeah. There's really is a problem with tiktok. being essentially a chinese company ben thompson is one of them And so something should be done here. There's a whole wider sort of us. China thing gets worked out so this is just vaping and bam nothing not in the morning I do think that assuming this gets sort of left on the biden administration's desk that it doesn't go away and that they'll be some kind of change to tick tock. I don't know if oracle and walmart being sort of investors have operators is. This is the is the solution in clearly. Tiktok doing just fine Even though it has an issue

Hogger Is The Latest Character Coming To Heroes Of The Storm

"Kind just lead off with the biggest news story of possibly the year. Any sports okay. I thought last week you'll ever what i thought last week. It was the biggest ever. No this is it. We've had a lot of biggest weeks but this week may be the biggest of all because this week. Here's the storm. Got a new hero for the first time in like i can't even count. They literally just released new hero. There are people at blizzard. Still working on this game a parent apparantly. They literally they were like released official. Not some rogue employee's official. They started listening to the podcast. There like that kid. William really likes the store and we gotta give him a new hero and bam. They're literally like out of nowhere. You had no idea new hero. His name's hogger. He's a knoll he spins around. It's awesome so if you ask me how my week was. I think i just told you like leg world of warcraft harder. Well if warren bradshaw gary. Everyone's making jokes about like like his voice lines. Let me tell you how. I escaped storm wind. Keep you know how like harder is is one of. I would say if not the while hold on. I don't wanna go too far. It's i would argue top three memes ever okay. So leroy jenkins number one. Yup leroy jenkins is number. One number two is next ramos. Blood not like the play harder number two because harder river to. It's the first real like elite that you kill right. Yeah paul i. I know that and so it was like like the looking for group. Hogger is like you wanna mean at like level. Sixty in classic. Wow that's that's that's what you put out there right or you want or do you want to. You know you want to grief other players. You go and just cam poker. Because they're trying to kill him to finish whatever quest they've got and he just stand around the spine and one shot him. You know it's that hogger yes. It's that auger interesting You know nobody really knows. Like i mean these new heroes like they always seem overpowered at launch. You know i played him. I actually thought he was underpowered. But i think that has more to do with me being absolutely useless at the game despite playing it nonstop for six years so i felt like it just died off time when i played him but it doesn't matter at this point they could put a mouse mouse trap and a piece of cheese in the game and i would buy like i'd be like this is incredible when you actually have spent money on the game. Now oh my god. Yes so many like side like this new content. I bought the hair they released today by the are paul economic incentives. Like if i want them to keep releasing new heroes. I have to find out how. I still don't believe that. This is some official project at blizzard. I really believe it's. It's like two rogue employees that that that oxygen is paying behind under the table. Maybe maybe we should be quiet about. Maybe they've just survived because like nobody's notice there unlike closet somewhere somehow escaped eight. Hr shutdowns and it's like randy from what was it office space or whatever. The is just their house. We can keep developing. I it we hit. It has a very big user base. That game like it's not league level. It's clearly large enough for them to continue resources to some extent and look if they're shutting down starcraft that they're continuing to do lots as much as we mean about like. Oh la william. You're so weird to like that game like it added an audience. It's just not a huge audience but it's big enough that even a company like blizzard still invest something on it. So i mean i would assume on. Its own like i. I don't know how blizzard internally looks at projects right but do they. Are they sophisticated enough. I mean i'm sure they are but the question is do they break out sort of a pnl for each game. Right is simple enough to do that. Or is there so much intermingling of resources at the company eight possible. I cannot believe they do not have a pl specifically for that game at least on the revenue side cost side might be a little harder to attribute because you borrowed an artist here you re use an asset. Their pets like i. I have no doubt that the games are run as pretty strict individual. Pnl's with relatively high control that the must be profitable right to keep going. Yeah the the big question that kills things like this and organizations is hugh rationalizations right. This is why like coke and you know what is it. Clorox or old household price continuously cycle out brands. despite the fact that there are actually quite successful. Like if you. And i started one of those brands like this head. Skew rationalization is big driver of overall profitability. And big business says and that sort of what happened to starcraft right gut skew rationalized. Essentially i bet you for the investment on it it was still profitable. The question is could you put those dollars somewhere else and have a higher return. Could you put that management attention somewhere. And so i think it's interesting that the storm clearly. They're not scared to kind if they need to. They killed these sports scene right. It was dead until the cc l. But it is interesting that like you know they have. They don't skew so again. I think it speaks to. The game is a lot bigger than i think. People realize i mean. I just like to kid about it because it's a funny meam now. It's like our our top. Names are dumpster. Fire cures to the storm. What is lindsay's nickname. That's like our three or three like

IRS Says Its Own Error Sent $1,200 Stimulus Checks To Non-Americans Overseas

"All right an update to an npr investigation now earlier. This year our team of reporters discovered that stimulus money. From the first corona virus. Relief package had been mistakenly sent to citizens of other countries. The us government previously blamed the recipients for that air but as sasha pfeiffer from our npr investigations team reports the irs. Now says those non-americans were not always at fault and the mistake is likely to happen again. If more stimulus checks go out. Suzanne wig force is a seventy eight year old citizen of sweden who lives in the country's capital stock home and over the summer she was surprised to get a check in the mail from the united states treasury followed by a letter signed by president donald j trump any says the white house washington july thirty first. Your economic impact payment has arrived my fellow american. It was a stimulus. Check for twelve hundred dollars. And i so i can't believe it sending it to me. Why it's crazy isn't it. It's crazy. She says because she is not entitled to that money. The only people eligible for stimulus checks are us citizens and individuals that for tax purposes. The irs calls resident aliens. Suzanne wig force is neither of those now previously. The us government said the reason. Many non-citizens mistakenly received checks. Is they filed incorrect tax returns. That made them appear to be. American with force does not file a us tax. Return asked about this by npr. The irs now acknowledges that some non-americans erroneously received stimulus money through no fault of their own. I'm just upset. I love american. This is so wrong. Because i saw that a number of people were being evicted every month in chicago for instance and also one of those families would have needed. This stimulus check. Why should a swedish citizen living abroad received. Twelve hundred dollars the irs. Now says it mistakenly sent checks to some non-citizens who receive social security and other federal benefits people like wig force. She receives a small social security payment from having worked in california for several years. And she believes that's why the irs erroneously send her stimulus check. I'm not gonna cash. I'm just gonna leave it here. There's no way i'm gonna cash this money. It doesn't belong to me since congress passed. Its coronavirus relief. Package in march the. Us government has put no mechanisms in place to prevent these mistakes from happening again. That means if a new relief plan passes in the final weeks of the trump administration or during the biden administration and if it includes more stimulus payments some of that money is again likely to mistakenly end up in mailboxes. Overseas workforce is even likely to get another check. How much money is bleeding out from the treasury department because of these similars checks. I wonder the. Us government cannot answer that question. The treasury did find that as of late may thirty. Four million dollars in stimulus had gone to people who filed tax return with a foreign address but that includes eligible people like us citizens living abroad and it does not include citizens of other countries who received a check at a us address for example npr interview citizen of the dominican republic. Who was not eligible. Ya gotta check at his former address in massachusetts. That thirty four million dollars also does not include people like wig force who got a check but don't file a us tax return at all. I think the poor folks in the irs. Don't of the bond with to go chasing this end. Kelleher is a vice president at sprint tax. Which does us tax preparation for non-residents. It'd be great if they did. Because i believe that there's millions of dollars that has gone to bless weren't entitled to it or certainly not the intended recipients spring tax has clients from about one hundred and fifty countries who mistakenly received stimulus checks kelleher said the most common were india china south korea vietnam and the united kingdom as numerous nations in latin america. It's awful when we hear of millions of dollars going into the wrong hands but was probably within somewhat acceptable threshold of error or margin of error. Acceptable he said because congress opted for speed over accuracy when it flooded the us economy with money less spring many non-americans who received a cheque in error are now trying to return it because they it will jeopardize their visa or immigration status bush equally. Passer saying well if they were silly enough to make this mistake could their mistake. And i'm not gonna give it back until they ask for it. Then shockley falls in that category. He's seventy four years old and was born in pennsylvania but he moved to australia becoming disillusioned with us. Politics in the nineteen sixties are always been depressed when jfk was killed. I just couldn't get over that. So i started looking for someplace else. Start over so. He gave up his u. s. citizenship. And has now been an australian citizen for about a half century his last trip to the. Us was forty years ago but he to receive stimulus money even though he's not eligible for it and does not file a us tax return. That was the weirdest thing ever check. The mail pulled out check federal reserve treasury. Tingey go over the eagle in that. It's made out to me. What's from america. What the hell's going on here. Why am i getting a check. The government just like suzanne wig force in sweden. Then shockley and australia. He mistakenly got a check because he received social security from having worked in the us. Before moving overseas. I i thought it was a joke and then i went down to the bank us. Can you do some way of verifying. This is legal. The girl come back after five minutes and says it's legal. You got the middle thank you bam. I didn't ask for the money. I didn't expect any money. But as soon as i got stuck in the bank. Yeah you're getting it back. Shockley attributes the mistake to us government incompetence complete stupidity. They're just not doing their job properly. Us treasury officials said they are continuing to assess the accuracy of the stimulus program and the recovery efforts for any eroneous payments sasha pfeiffer on morning edition from npr news.

N o Dan Mullen had it who now have the Corona virus and are now dealing with this And you know, my thought is This couldn't have happened at least to any other program that has more reinforcements in place to prevent against things going awry before a massive Massive game Cozy, you know is doing everything in the right was sure. Absolutely. I mean, that's once again. We can't villainize there vilify people forget in the prone A virus at this point next day, been said it that panties like I go home. I go to work. I don't know how I got it and You know that program. Um, given who's next in line and who's going to be taking over with, you know Nick Saban watching the all 22 during the game. I know that he can't have some magical headset to put all of the conspiracy theories out there. He's not watching the game and calling the place. It's not like Hugh Freeze in the hospital bed calling place of Liberty. It's that level three wishes probably could. He will have a really at halftime. I mean, he will be on the phone with coaches trust me, no doubt at halftime, but Your point. He did speak today after being diagnosed positive with the coronavirus. Here's a head coach of the number one team in the country next saving on the just on a couple days right now the IV but a couple days before the Iron Bowl, his head coach of Alabama Was informed this morning that I had tested positive. It was a PCR test, which was different than you know, the false positive I had before. I don't really have any cardinal signs of the virus Right now. I don't have a fever, No loss of taste of snow, no fatigue, no muscle aches. I informed the team this morning at 10 on the zoom call on and I'm up. I'm the only person in the whole organization who tested positive on this, You know around. So you know the Alban Games, obviously the most important game and We hate it that this situation occurred. But as I said, many times before, you gotta be able to deal with disruptions and this year and our players have been pretty sure about doing that. Well, we just want to carry on the best we can.

Ultracold Soup: Meet The 'Superfluid' States Of Matter

"Or at quang. I am ready to go back to school with you. Which honestly dreer great. We would be good lab competitive. Yeah we will be competitive but we be great together. I think and so the science concepts. We're going to unpack. Today is states of matter. You know some of those other states of matter. You didn't learn about in science class rights so the physicist i called up to explain this is martin's veer line at mit. and what. i find hilarious. How martin is he said when it comes to his own kid. He actually prefers to keep this particular science lesson. Pretty simple to assam like. Oh yeah you the gas liquid solid bam. Leave it at that you know. He's seven and states of matter is really just a way to describe how a group of particles think atoms or molecules etc move which is sort of beautiful and collective and different from what you would gifts by looking just at a single particle and changes in temperature and pressure can cause those particles to move differently and change their behavior right. We see the super easily with water. That's right in the liquid phase water molecules slip and slide past each other but we humans quickly learned that if you lower the temperature the particles slowdown bam. We see is appear and we fridges. And we're very excited about. That actually was a huge deal hundred years ago to make ice and if we go in the opposite direction heat water. The particles move faster and farther apart and eventually the h. two o. Molecules breakaway and dissipate into the air as water vapor humidity. That's right it is already a miracle in itself. Water exists in these three different states that we can see those states at temperatures that we can reach as a humans in the kitchen. But here's the thing we can only do so much in our kitchen. Speak right speakers though there. But there's a limited range of temperature and pressure that even you can achieve in your kitchen mattie and there are states of matter beyond this okay like do you remember plasma who ya. Sometimes it's called the fourth state of matter and it can happen when matter gets heated to a super high temperature like electrons rips from atoms which actually allows plasma to conduct. Electricity super cool. Lightning is plasma. Plasma is wild. It is wild. Yeah and if we were to go in the other direction to an extreme if martin son were to ask dad what can happen at a temperature much cooler than ice. Is there something else. I might start telling him about these superfluid states of matter which is exactly what martin's studies at mit these superfluids states of matter that we're long predicted but not easily observed in nature. So how many states of matter are out there. Well we don't actually know martin want to even commit to a number. When i asked him this question he actually said ouch. The is apparently no end to the series of interesting new. Twist that nature gives us to to find your states of matter. We just are digging as we speak. We're digging into this all the time and that's because in theoretical physics. You can use math to predict things that experimental physicists haven't observed yet and i say yet because in the last few decades scientists have successfully coaxed atoms under extreme laboratory conditions to enter other states of matter states that could have useful applications for future technologies awesome. Okay let's get this. Emily like how do they do. This kind of lab can had to exist for these other states of matter to emerge. I'm so glad you asked. They had to get cold. Ultra cold we work in the neno. Kelvin regime for breakfast ano- kelvin. So you might ask what so. That's actually very called. It's a billion times cold interstellar

He founded the michael j. fox foundation for parkinson's research organization has raised a billion dollars to find a cure through it. All fox found a way to maintain his signature optimism until twenty eighteen when his sunny disposition took a significant hit fox underwent spinal surgery. Then a serious fall that forced him to confront his mortality. He writes about that year in his new book. No time like the future which is out this week and michael. J. fox joins me now. Welcome here tell me about that fall. Well i when dealing with my thirty thirty. Th year outlook parkinson's so that that kind of had handle on been ahead. Spinal tumor had surgery on that and it took me a while to learn how to walk again. I'd barely learn what getting when i of course declared independence until they could walk on my own. And i belong in so i got up. Walk into the kitchen swift flooring shattered my arm and all the dean indignities that was for some reason cutting blow so you as you say you were dealing not only with parkinson's for many years you've just gone through this incredibly dangerous surgery to remove a tumor from your spine. Just spend a moment there for a minute. How serious was that spinal diagnosis in was pretty seriously lifting for a while for a few years. But he's been in a benign and static wasn't doing anything from the dodgers. Just watch that check on every now and then so when the last time that checked on it had grown quite considerably was actually on spinal cord itself which then made Something that Attach because they can't in any way touch her to remove some spinal for when you touch it. But johns hopkins adopted feodor. When's your with me. Discuss the risk. The risk of not doing it where i would be paralyzed by now by as we speak from when win puts me that way i realized yeah and then there you are lying on the floor in your apartment in new york city. Your arm shattered. You'd gone through all of these challenges and gotten through them for the most part right. So where do you think the darkness came from. Why did you so desperately lose that optimism that to become known for some reason it was almost instantaneous last lemon unknown lemonade Unbelie it was angry myself for taking for granted Detention in the in the care they put into my health in my in my life and you know what family Asked me to be careful. When i said don't be careful. Careful careful Carelessly walking too fast and it was two kind of full of pride of of at my might chievements to understand the risks of taking an inadequate To at risk in all the time engine Physical therapists who put me at risk and anti alexander myself I agree as said about how they push china's within a bum. Catchy raised the land myself. They get passes the nothing it was like. I started thinking with the parkinson's community i Optimism tennessee. And i kind of said it'll be okay and and really there are people that had a misery index lot higher needle. Lend me with a broken arm. Bagging car is these are people who've lost lives homes country family children woodward by bam. Who am i to tell them to be have to miss it online on the slowly a rag or i can see why you would be angry but what about scared was scared to well. Isn't that what happened. Was that came out of that. Here that come off the floor and heavily armed fiction which function in a. I would let examined all these things. Fear aging gratitude. Just all of these things came through my mind. And as i made notes on them out for no reason Lebron you're going through something with take contemporaries in alabama a. He's not that. I said let's deceased together into the story of what happened and how i lost and regained my commitment. How might new. Optimism is kind of a little more informed with a little more realistic eating. Be realistic at the same time. You reminded us for those who need to be reminded how precious thing it is to walk. And i found the way that you described your relationship with wheelchairs to be very powerful at one point in the book said that. Unless you know the person who's pushing you can be a very isolating experience in fact you compared yourself to a piece of luggage and then you went on to say that if we could ever just look at each other in the eye we would recognize our shared humanity. And i just want to thank you for that. Because actually i had never thought of that before and those are probably things. I imagine that you for granted at some stage in your life as as being and i talked about that will move momentum me my life and and how i was always moving in in my job is an actor. Energy do stunts or having physical representations of what was happening or as an athlete another good one persona in so. When i look at things i will shares do thing one to have been nail biting person. My whole life into be can't walk in the other thing about being in the chair. Is that for me personally. I'm i'm i'm someone who is easily recognizable. Everybody knows intense speed familiar with and even if they don't know me as a privilege of what i do but when you're unsure you just a piece of luggage and pushing Order hotel something. He's escaped me from point being open to get five bucks in so you just stay in you push Facing the wall can't get into the verbally again. Like you will not have Beings open as they are. They might as well. Apple's own smoke last bubbles. Is that people to be going on with him. Well let's talk about your acting career. The thing that made it so that people recognize you on the street. You've gotten roles in recent years. The didn't hide the fact that you had parkinson's symptoms but actually incorporated that into the role such as louis canning of courses. The lawyer on the tv drama. The good wife with listen to a scene there. I suffer from a condition turtle disconnect asia which is released a funny word for neurological disorder. And it makes me do this. And this i if you just look at me all of us to it so and i won't mind in the book you say that you're ready to accept the your acting career is over to an extent i i laugh in fact it's something surprisingly something to change but yeah the last couple times. I acted i actually. I haven't played warners again anyway. Resume lines difficulty for some reason. Always been some interesting. Even with. I look at her family. Ties scripted from five minutes Show and i just said they photographic memories Position where i didn't know struggling with the lines Lear capital in time in hollywood going off assessing what. What is the deal. But unlike him in that movie. Who's parading himself really angry when i found myself in that position. I said i'll gable. This isn't working so maybe we'll find some other way to do it or not. Do you also say you may be done with gulf another thing that you've loved. How is it letting these things go or acknowledging that it might be time soon to let them go. Insights about acceptance and gratitude and acceptance. Part of it is what is accepted into circuit. That is what liz i can deal with that. An investing came endeavor to change it. But if you don't accept the and be more blog that be cranny of your life Adjusted so. I accepted the fact that i assume golf club too hard. I fall down in a like boohoo. I'm falling nanosecond. Only now therefore i don't put myself in that position again fall down on but maybe one day i'll be treated in a way or find some way to get so. I don't fall down in the gulf again. I'll be grateful for it. It's just a matter. Is that come compartmentalizing really. It's taking inventory seeing where that fits in your life and the losses that have had are more than compensated for by my family my friends by the role habit in the parsis communities it change to relationships with people on the street to how much i enjoy reading how much film much writing is less to joe you live. I'm speaking with michael j. fox whose new book is called no time like the future and optimists considers mortality and michael. Similar listening to this may have just been diagnosed with parkinson's and that could be very frightening for them as you. Well know in fact you become an ambassador of sorts. For for folks with parkinson's what's your message to people who've just recently been diagnosed as i was talking to manually. Today's few was just diagnosed in like me was diagnosed. Daytona nine Items that was twenty nine years ago. So i did. I said for you. Being diagnosed a twenty nine means for sure no doubt bank on it. Better write it down. It will be here in your lifetime. And how much credit can the fox foundation take for that. I will take not moods. It'd be happy happened. We we are the largest funded research in private sector but never a mission. Our mission is we have a thing. When we first started we about how to structure foundation dissimilar brought up endowments down like e bala money said on this again and said we won't be doing that. Come to go out so we operated on then in the set aside purely motive. Where would you do it. It's your model that each is trying to get this work done as quickly as we can for people in. It's been so yeah. Optimism is is a driver knows every night. You because because there's no sense doing something again at least argue for michael j. fox thank you so much. Be well you to

What is that relationship in like? Dwayne LOVES HIM TOO and says he watches the Bam show all the time and they have a bet and they were very adamant they would not disclose the terms of the bet to me. But it's it's about Bam averaging something for the season some kind of stat line and I think Bam is probably GonNa win the bet but he was he was not going to disclose the terms. What is it about his personality in his competitiveness that jives with the vaunted heat Culture Hashtag? He'd called. He's a little bit nasty and he they guys with a little bit image. And they'll even say this about Alonzo who now works Has worked for the team forever. They'll say I don't think Alonzo Mourning woulda worked in every place in the NBA. Get a little nasty to him and Bam as friendly as he is in his gregarious as he can be. He's a little nasty. He wants to win as individual matchup every game. All these guys are super competitive right like everyone who these profiles has details about. Oh He needs to win it every board game and when we play pool he throws a Tantrum if he does win. Bam has that but Bam has always directed to I WANNA break. My opponents will the guy across for me. I don't want him to score a basket and I want to make my team win. What are the only photos? He has himself playing basketball in. His house is of him guarding Lebron because he was so proud of how he guarded the bride and a couple.

Oh I'm GONNA shoot threes and dribble through my legs and do all this crazy stuff. I'M GONNA go out and kill people that's what I do. I'M GONNA go out dunk on people's heads and get rebounds and blocked shots and scored nineteen points on seven shots and he claims and the heat claimed to that he set some Miami Rookie record for most field goals and free throws without Amiss in a single game which is like one of these obscure records only local broadcasters will ever mentioned by Bam said it and is proud of it and from that Game Forward Spo was like I gotta find some time for this guy like he. He's ready to help our team. That's about when he also made an impact on Dwayne Wade. Right he made an impact on Dwayne. Wade's head bio another crushing slam. Dunk Anna Dwayne Wade. Told me man I tried to go up and get it and I didn't have a chance and from that moment on Duane said I was a fan. What is that relationship in like? Dwayne LOVES HIM TWAIN SAYS HE watches the Bam show all the time and they have a bet and they were very adamant they would not disclose the terms of the bet to me. But it's it's about Bam averaging something for the season some kind of stat line and I think Bama's probably GonNa win the Bet. But he was he was not gonNA disclose the terms. What is it about his personality? In his competitiveness that jives with the vaunted heat culture Hashtag he. He's a little bit nasty and he they guys with a little bit image and they'll even say this about. Lonzo who now works Has worked with the team forever. They'll say I don't think Alonzo Mourning would work in every place in the NBA yet. A little nasty to him and Bam as friendly as he is in his gregarious as he can be. He's a little nasty. He wants to win his individual matchup every game. All these guys are super competitive right like everyone who these profiles has details about. Oh He needs to win it every board game and when we played pool he throws a Tantrum if he does win Bam has that but Bam has directed to I wanNA break. My opponents will the guy across for me. I don't want him to score a basket and I want to make my team win one of the only photos. He has himself playing basketball in. His house is of him guarding Lebron because he was so proud of how he got a couple of switches was forced by James and a shot clock violation on Cleveland. Good defense by rookie. Damn does he likes to feeling of these guys. Think they can get by me and they can't. How did that manifest itself when they played Minnesota last year? That was my favorite story in the UH might maybe my favorite store in reporting IBM. And I could tell that. Kenny pain was very excited. And a little trepidation to tell the story but he told it anyway so as the final four was in. Minneapolis last year before this national semifinals. The timberwolves hosted the heat. Which met Karl Anthony towns and Bam out or in the same city and the Kentucky. Coaching staff was also in the same city because everyone goes to the final four and John cale par in Kenny pain. Who's an assistant with Kentucky organized a dinner With the two of them and Carl and Bam and Kenny Pain. I did not know this about him. Is is apparently a legendary disturbing. He enjoys getting under people's skin so they also down to dinner. And Kenny. Says Karl towns it carly men tomorrow in the game? Take it easy on my baby. Bam Don't don't embarrass them and Carl says well you know it's on air expulsion of ten double teams of. Bam need some help and Kenny said. I could feel Bam's leg shaking under the table. He was so infuriated by this entire conversation. And then the next game he he gave Carl towns. Some fits pam knocked away. Waiters came up with the actual defense. From behind towns. Towns had eleven turnovers in that game. Which is the most? He's ever had any claims he doesn't. I interviewed Karl. It's not in the story. He claims very little memory of what happened in the game except he clearly remembers that. The tumor was one. Because that's what he wanted to talk about not using turnovers that seems like a lot of turnover as you think you would remember that you had eleven turnovers in an NBA game. That's like a lot of turnovers. But he he claims like I don't know what does Bam success mean for the heat as a team and also the city of Miami the heat traded for Jimmy Butler h thirty right. So he's going to be there. He's a star. But he's not like their star than the way that Alonzo Mourning or you Don Dwayne Wade. Where there's the heat and weighed in particular view. Ban is sort of the next standard bearer of what it means to be a Miami heat franchise player and when Riley says that in Alonzo Mourning says that Dwayne Wade says that. It's a big big deal and you can tell when you bring it up Bam that it's a big deal to him to hear these people say that about him. It means something to him. Thanks so much. Always a pleasure.
