COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia
"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it. Just another one of the many mysteries that still surround covid nineteen
NZ election: why voters chose 'health over wealth'
"Into mania in. New Zealand. Tonight. New Zealand has shown the Labor Party, its greatest support and at least fifty years. End For that. I only had two simple words. Thank you. Well that was prime, minister? I done this she celebrating her emphatic election victory last weekend. Now the significance of the Labor Party landslide. It's not just that it's seen as a reward for her decisive response to the COVID crisis. It means New Zealand now has its first single-party government in decades. So what does the mandate main for new? Zealand's economic landscape as it faces its worst recession in nearly a century. We'll deliver a progressive transformation across the ditch. What happens if New Zealand does not sort ad its economic challenges quickly. trans-tasman cousins could I become fouled state? All of the heart, which is executive director of the new. Zealand initiative and Josie. PAGARINI is the executive director of the Council for International Development both a based in Wellington all of Josie welcome to. Radio National. Hello Tom. JC How do you account for Cinderella Dunes emphatic victory. Well, I mean you've got to say the popularity is genuine people lover. She's like a superstar she goes into to shopping malls and gets mobbed but I think you'd say you'd have to say to that that election campaign was incredibly disciplined Labor wanted a covid election. They wanted election that was about who stopped US getting sick not who's going to get us back to work and they succeeded in getting that they also wanted election that was focused not on labor, not particularly on policy, but almost entirely on just cinder. So if you the completely unscientific focus. Group in the Texas, you'd ask a taxi driver who you voting for, and let's say I'm voting for just under the all of a juicy. He reflects the Conventional Wisdom Abacha in Dorado and that her aggressive handling off covered and not to mention her response to the mass shooting of Muslims in in Christchurch earlier last year the gun control measures she put in place all that explains Justin, Dryden's remarkable political popularity. She's also received widespread global price for being a stateswoman who's kept New Zealand you nodded even in the face of multiple crises, your not fanned. Why? Well. First of all, I would agree with our choice just as remarkably popular and. This scenes from her election campaign were quite telling wherever she turned up. They were hundreds of people around her celebrating her. My experience with taxi drivers though is a bit different, maybe different taxi companies are us. Last The last few times I had known taxi drivers They complained that their businesses stoned at the city's undying out that we are not recovering properly from the crisis. That business is simply not what it used to be an typically detect Texas. Of course when I'm flying from Wellington to Auckland, and have to get to the CD and you can see the traffic in the city, the city looks kind of dead. We've got a massive challenge ahead on the economy in these eland, and that's why I haven't really seen much from the government in general plans of how to revive the economy and how to get us out of they have effectively beaten the virus now twice. But they haven't actually given us any clear indication how they're going to lift us out of this because the protections for public debts for unemployment. From monetary policy, they actually scare me when you look at them many New Zealand business figures share all of skepticism is fair Point Jersey. Yes, it is because the election really did focus on cousin who it was absolutely about who stopped US getting sick and so it was actually really hard to get any coherent debate about what is the plan B if we don't get a vaccine next year, what is the retail kind? So it was all very vague that staff and. You're right. All of you got different taxi companies to me to probably but another thing I heard in Texas a lot was all well if it's between wealth and health, I'm GonNa pick health and just send a picked health. Well, of course, you know we know that that's a false dichotomy it's not health or wealth. If you country is unable to trade and you borders closed long-term, then you're not going to raise the revenue to be able to have decent hospitals. You're not going to get your school buildings. Renovated and so on, and you're not going to be getting elective surgery and people are actually going to get unhealthy. So but it was no one wanted to hear that town that was the thing. No one wanted to hear a debate about next year they just wanted to know that. Anti Cinde was gonNA look after and that was it. Yes we'll enjoys does mentioned the vaccine just interested in like most western leaders frankly, she's pretty policy on the likelihood of a vaccine in coming months but the question here is what if a readily available vaccine if it ever happens what if it's a long way off I mean for how long all of our the present measures sustainable I mean, how long can you zeal and cut itself off from the outside world? Well I think that is actually a political question not an economic run from an economic perspective I. Think it would be desirable to New Zealand to the words more quickly but can do the safely. We can still have proper border to ensure that when we opened up to the word again, we do this without importing the virus. But I think the government sticks to the precautionary principle at the moment, and that's a political decision because the public doesn't want the government do anything outspent opinion polls before election showing that more than seventy percent of New Zealanders what actually like to keep the borders Morris close and these are people who probably don't have any immediate travel plans or maybe don't have any family abroad. Heavily business to do abroad, and so for them life is quite pleasant as long as they also keep their jobson New Zealand's, and so they would rather electric continue the status quo until that vaccine arrive. So it is difficult for the government to go against this when the public is. So strongly in favor of just keeping the border shut as they are but at some stage will just have to a because some the economic consequences of this some prolonged isolation are going to be enormous Jesse is point. Absolutely, you could not get a discussion out during the election campaign about elimination versus suppression of the virus, and so it was it was almost impossible to talk about the plan. B. If the vaccine doesn't turn up which let's face it, it's unlikely tuneup and be available next year so. Realistically the from left or the right of the political spectrum. It was really hard to talk about how long do our border stay closed, and those of us myself included who were trying to say, you know look closing the borders as a six month policy not a two year policy. He can't possibly maintain a closed border and keep trade going even though we can still export milk powder and so on. But the ability for our businesses to connect with the world and so on for us to travel is just not feasible but whenever I said that I would get attacked on twitter and everywhere for being the head of a capitalist difficult. So you could not get a good debate going about this even though the w eight show for example was saying, Hey, you know strict lockdowns and we've had very strict lockdowns for lockdowns are not the best approach if you're doing a cost benefit analysis on either health or economic growth.
How to Find Inspiration in Doubt
"Hello and welcome to another episode of the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John Jansen, my guest today is Carol. She is the founder and CEO of hint water a flavored water brand she founded in two thousand and five. He's also the author of a new book called. Daunted overcoming doubts and doubters. So thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me. So in your bio I, read that you were one of the I don't know about original. You've spent some time at AOL. My father-in-law still hasn't AOL account and he thinks he's he thinks it's the Internet that AOL's. That's I I met. So my real question though is, do you still have any of those CD's? You. Know what I do have a couple of the CD is that I kept and I have a few. AOL Jackets Memorabilia that I stuck in a plastic bin. For. can't can't throw that away I. Mean it was a great time. I mean it it's a you know it's sort of an iconic brand that really Steve Case. Bill Right. There were a lot of people there and I played a part in building out the e commerce and You know there were a lot of people that basically felt like. Was the only place to shop. I mean, we were kind of a very enclosed safe place where you could go and You know I really fortunate opportunity to help build out I always viewed it as like a virtual mall and so I would I would like actually. Study Mall's people would ask like, how do you not like bring in Lake J. crew and into. Building out the small and I'm like I go down to the Stanford Mall and actually figure out what other stores are sitting there. Do you know Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom's and some of the others and and that's essentially what we were doing and A community for people. It's funny too because and and we'll get look into the book but I think it's fascinating because it was really it was really a closed place originally got AOL and it wasn't the same as getting to a website that you could. Then just you know punt go somewhere else for a long time it was a very much a contained. As. You said, yeah, and it was also a place for brands to really reinvent themselves I. Mean I remember there was this one catalogue company that we were dealing with called celebration fantastic and pretty small catalogue and and They weren't doing great on the service I mean they were up against like some big guys they weren't getting the promotion. So I remember Valentine's Day rolled around round one day and You know they had this product that was like a chocolate sauce and and they were like we have this idea that we want to do one of your pop ups, those pop-ups screens come. and. They and they called it a better than sex chocolate entrepreneur and and you know people went crazy over it and and so I think it was like it was the first place where you know you could really reinvent yourself in this new channel by showcasing certain products that you have and I mean their sales just off of that product were millions of dollars and just it was absolutely insane but it was really the first place where I saw that you could build brands you know in a non traditional way which you know frankly I go back to our business, my my main business hint. My my day job, you know we fifty five percent of our business is direct to consumer and a world where Soda Is. You know that's just not the way that. Are Sold I mean if anything if they are sold online, it's through an Amazon but it's not through their own site and so I think it's it just little examples like that on my journey make me believe and make me think like how can we just do things? How can we try and how can we do things a little bit different and ultimately better. So today hint comes in twenty players if people aren't familiar with it sparkling and caffeinated. It's a non alcoholic beverage, one of the maybe the largest independent non alcoholic beverage in the world hundred. This is estimated I haven't looked at your books, a hundred and forty million dollars or so in yearly sales, two hundred employees and no famous investors involved in the company, right? That's ten today. Did you start hint to solve a problem or disrupted industry. a little bit of both. Actually you know it's I think back on the journey and you know I call myself an accidental entrepreneur because I wasn't a typical. I'M GONNA go and work for myself or I'm going to be an entrepreneur one day My Dad had actually kind of been frustrated entrepreneur and side a large company He had developed a brand that you may know called healthy choice and inside of Armor Food Company, and then ultimately they were acquired by Conagra but I i. so I had a little bit of learning working for him but I think also when I. Had grown up and tack and in many ways and being at AOL before I decided to start this company and while I, was. Really trying to solve a health problem for myself after I had had three children I wanted to lose the baby weight that I had put on and. Develop terrible adult acne I realized after looking at everything that I was putting all the food I was putting into my body that there's diet. Soda was had more ingredients in it than like I mean I I I talk about it now as I. Cared more about what I put in my car than what I put into my own body and I thought like why is that and a whole story around labels like Diet and you know there's low fat and vitamins and things like that that equated to health in my head but you weren't alone in that address. After switching from my Diet Soda over to Plain. Water, I two and a half weeks lost twenty four pounds got rid of my acne God my energy back and I said Gosh, there's just like a lot of people who are trying to figure out obviously how to get healthier and it's not. Right and and. Like if they could just actually enjoy water again, then they you know we might not have the brand new thing that cropped up about the time I was starting hint type, two diabetes you know things that are. Really. Dangerous chronic right and I thought they need to ultimately enjoy water maybe they need to do other things but that's a first step and so that's when I. Recognize that I didn't like water I aspired to be a water drinker and I start slicing bruton throwing in water and that's when. You know I thought I'm not even sure this is a company I think it's like A. I I don't know I think it's a product I'd worked for companies before right and so when I decided to take this product to whole foods and my local whole foods in San Francisco friends were would come over my house and I tell them. You know it started this little thing I wasn't even calling in a company and they're like that's so cool that you start a company I'm like is it a company? I don't know if it's a company like I have three skews like I'm not sure it's actually a company. But. That's when I really realized that I'm starting something that could actually help bigger range of people get healthier disrupted industry that doesn't care about health back. Then there was nobody calling companies mission driven I was mission driven from day one because I really wanted to help a lot of other people.
River Ecosystem Restoration Can Mean Just Add Water
"In the eighteen hundreds many rivers in the American West were diverted for irrigation or damned for generating electricity. So rapidly, expanding cities began tapping into groundwater, add climate change into the mix, and you can see how an already arid desert can become even more parched the banks of the Santa. Cruz river in southeastern Arizona were described in eighteen fifty five as covered with poplars and willows, ashtrays, and plantations, oaks, and walnut trees. But essentially later the river was gone but the original river of to the written here ecologist Michael Bogan from the University of Arizona. Seventy years after it ran dry, the city of Tucson decided to release treated wastewater back into the riverbed around two point eight, million gallons. Each day Bogan went to participate in the festivities when the valves were opened in June twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, and everybody was know around water and excited that the water back in the river and what I immediately got by wake was the number of dragonflies that I was seeing within a few hours Bogan counted seven different species of dragonflies. He even saw dragonflies and Damsel flies mating and laying eggs at a river. The had not existed earlier that day. So I was like Oh my gosh and I needed studied this. This is so cool that. are coming back so fast just three months later bogans team had documented roughly the same abundance and diversity of dragonflies that they'd seen in other parts of the river that have been flowing for years also abundant were may FIS cactus flies? These invertebrates are indicators of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. The results are published in the journal Peer J important. Out Water to go systems, the species will find a way to get back there If you just put water back into the systems that we've dried up and the longer you can put water the more water you can put in gas that's great for creating a more diverse habitat, no more greater abundance CDs but really the simple answer is is just that water and all reacted you to to restore a lot. Still, this is a manufactured ecosystem. It's not as if this artificially charged river is identical to the natural one that existed a century ago we like to call them managed ecosystems on because they are you have a lot of aspects species are coming in are on their own, but they rely on this case. Few Song some water for releasing that water without city doing that they would have nothing Bogan calls on urban planners and other city officials to collaborate with ecologists and Biologists to maximize the beneficial effects of bio-diversity while still achieving the goals of urban development.
Being Customer Driven With Data-Driven Marketing
"Welcome to marketing trends I mean phase on host of marketing trends, and today we are joined by special guests Marty. How are you? I'm good I. Doing it is great to have you. I'm really excited to talk to you today. Obviously, we love salesforce and and you're the amazing sponsor the show. But beyond that you've been doing some amazing work. You're writing a book that's going to be out soon, called customer driven, and we're GONNA talk a lot about data, which is at the at the top of mind for every marketer. Before we get into all that, how did you get started marketing? That's a good question. I've had a very strange career in I have a hard time explaining it to my mother. But when I look back realized started wanting to be a journalist New York and ninety s writing for magazines back when there were magazines and it seemed like a viable career and I ended up at MTV networks on a show called video. And wrote the little bubbles blurbs, which is the the peak of my journalists experience, and then after that I went into to business school, I wanted to management consultant probably the only person at the time we want to be one and I thought it would be glamorous and sexy to be a media consultant and then the dot com bomb happened two thousand and one, and so I ended up over. Counter the healthcare over over the counter healthcare consulting, which is just what it sounds like and then I ended up at an AD agency doing direct marketing and measurement, and that was kind of the beginning of my marketing advertising career and it was through consulting. It was sort of it was strategic engagements and the career was actually called measurement. I pick all these glamorous wants the measurement was basically impact. of Ad campaigns and it was dumb you know digital campaigns how did they do look at search and display and so on and I was in that field for about ten years and then I, went to garner as an industry analyst covering advertising technology and marketing technology and measurements. Still now, it will be called data science. By the way, I would get a retroactive promotion and then I joined salesforce. About two years ago. So it's always been on the MARCECA and an analytic side in interestingly enough in the beginning that was not the sexy part of marketing and now it is, of course, if you're the the data scientists on the campaign, you're the coolest person there but it was the exact opposite twenty years ago. So I've I've written the wave up. Yeah. The closest closest person to to proof. Of, being ends up being the most valuable person room I do I'm Gonna I'm GonNa follow up on the pop up video stuff because I'm endlessly fascinated in that but flash forward to today. What does it mean to Espn Strategy for Marketing Cloud salesforce? It's. It's an interesting job at spans product management product marketing, and with the flavor of thought leadership I think when I was hired, which was two years ago it was around a specific problem it was and it was into the product organization. Software companies are structured with pretty defined role. So you're in either in product management, which is sort of halfway between engineering and marketing or your product marketing, which is what it sounds like you're in sales or you're an engineer so there for basic rules and this is close. To, product management and the question was around the customer data platform category CD, which was the hottest and is probably still the hottest category and March tack that's come along in a long time since two thousand and sixteen. It's just been hyped out of out of control kind of like insider hype. If you're in the business, you know what I'm talking about. If you're outside, you'd be like what? What's a CD, but it's it's a big deal and the question at salesforce was do we have one? Should we acquire? It was billed by require that kind of thing, and they needed someone from the outside who wasn't sort of inside the the salesforce system having come as a as an analyst industry analyst who knew the industry and a new kind of outsider perspective to say it what is what I need to Dan I knew coming in that we needed to build queries harder than it looks to build something, and that's what we've done. In fact we're launching that in next month version wants it's a tremendously major effort on. As, part to pivot engineers and to develop this net new product customer three sixty audiences, which is a CPA and in fact, the topic of our book customer driven I, wrote it with my colleague Chris O'hara to give him full credit, the multi-talented era he and I wrote this book about Customer Data Platforms it's not about salesforce, but it is about this category, which is fascinating. Yeah I mean. Will we've seen you name it start-up getting snatched up data startups getting snatched up right and left being acquired. Just recently had some massive. IPO's around data companies. I mean, clearly, data is where it's not the new oil and it's not the new oil because that phrase literally never made sense but. But it is the lifeline of every marketer, and if you don't have an extremely strong philosophy and data, you're probably going to be left really far behind, which is pretty counter to the days of marketers creating you know add copying doing some of the things you were doing earlier in your career specifically around ad agencies and things like that I. mean you know going from that agency or from agency to to analyst to here on curious like what is that evolution been like for you? It's I mean, it's it's Bi modal. It's by modal is even to saying that kind of makes me a nerd, but it's a left brain right brain and and it's definitely I do this presentation sometimes say. How has marketing changed over the past twenty years as as a discipline and I remember when I was in business school as I said is right before the DOT com Bob's of two, thousand, two, thousand and one in Colombia and you could tell the people are interested in marketing back. Then just by looking at them, they were like slightly better looking. You know they dress better and they were you know I wouldn't say the social skills were definitely better. They were less interested in making money march sin hanging around with celebrities and I. I mean I'm being reductive in a way. I was one of them. So I can say this, but it was definitely a kind of a branch of show business. And today it really isn't. I mean that part hasn't gone away obviously of influencers, the celebrities if fonts and all that stuff but it's a lot less around the big campaigns and what we might call the softer side of marketing, and it's a lot more about the the foundational data layer and you have to be able to talk today to scientists give them credible instructions and you have to be able to understand things like statistical significance that marketers didn't have to worry about in the past. So I think it's it's a profession that has really Shifted, but it hasn't really shed what it was the past. So it's it's that it makes it interesting, but it also makes it very difficult to succeed in as a CMO. You see a CMO tenures being very short and it's because they have to be a statistician and an artist, and there aren't that many people could do both. So you know it's the long way round for. Saying that my background is is strangely appropriate because I was like in TV and then I was in business school, and so if you have those two elements I, think you can negotiate this strange new world It's moving more towards the data side than the graveside I would say, but we might we might see swing
"How did you come up with the name modern love well, it was part of a process. Yeah. We had all these different names that we tried and. I remember one of them was truly madly deeply. And I would now be called truly madly deeply editor, which is a really different kind of job title. Modern love editor But I thought of the David Bowie Song Modern Love. In suggesting modern love and literally almost any time I see. The words modern love I mean, it's worn off a little bit over the years but But it's hard for me not to read modern love and automatically hear. Hear that, Song. Would you sing it for our listeners Know because I, don't know that words but you have the. summit. Yeah. Yeah Love locks beside me nine. The second is walks beside me. Put my faith in God. And no religious. That's about as I can do. But there was a great. Story that. Spun. Out of that. Of writer had sent an essay, it didn't really work in the end, but it was about her covering love songs for other random people. She would send them a little audio file playing Ukulele and singing a cover of some song Ukulele, and that's what the essay was about. And when I rejected a A week or two passed and I this email.

Dr. Joan Palmiter Bajorek CEO of Women in Voice on Linguistics and its Place in Voice
"Know that's now I. I. Kinda WanNa. Go back a little bit because you're a linguist. And I mean I don't know how you characterize yourself to characterize yourself as a linguist. Yeah. Usually when people ask me say I consider myself primarily a linguist and researcher those are the two core identities that I inhabit most of the time. Okay. Great. So What originally got you interested in linguistics Yeah, I mean I think. I. Consider Myself as being linguist when I was little I like played with code things and you know babbling around I started taking French quote unquote foreign language. In Middle School, I would have been like eleven and. I just thought an unlocked, the coolest world's travel and culture, and you know my parents have always really prioritize travel instead of like buying a big screen TV's let's run off to Thailand So that kind of interesting language culture has always been there for me. Actually, my mom found his old document of mine working career stuff for high schoolers where you like plan out potential career directions. Apparently on this document, I circled linguistics French, and photography as the three things I was interested in which ended up being my undergraduate degrees, my master's degree. Topics right there. In my teenage years, I knew. That's perfect. Yeah. Well, maybe maybe we do. I. Say there's a sense that we ask college students to make decisions about the rest of their lives. You know it's such a young age but maybe we know at least some of us know much younger. I feel like I got really lucky I feel like. I. Don't necessarily know the names of the topics but I feel like there's a light at the end of the horizon that I'm walking towards at all times sometimes running a mostly walking in just knowing that directionality and honestly the privileged to be able to pursue the things that I'm so passionate about. Now given the you've spent so much time. Going into linguistics study research have you had time to keep up with your French photography? My I I taught French previously to pay the bills in my graduate studies and I worked in France between UNDERGRAD and graduate school. So I'm was very proficient I mean, my dad hopes one day become famous photographer. You know as a retirement career but no, I have A. Busy schedule today and those things take away backburner. Got It. Okay. So you started out French in photography you moved into linguistics and why don't you share with listeners? What some of the areas of study you focused initially and then how that evolved. Yes. So I don't masters in linguistics from UC Davis. And they did a really phenomenal job of forcing you to take all the courses. In the range of things I was always really interested in phonetics and sociolinguistics, but taking morphology and Syntax and typology natural language processing was of course it was very new at that time. And really. It's when I started actually studying to a link goes interfaces from a LP phonetics standpoint that I felt like I had a moment of like wait a minute. This is a big data multi-lingual back end. Used by millions of users worldwide. Like who is deciding what good enough means for the Audio You know At that time I focused a lot on ed tech but I think the multi lingual multi modal interfaces that I was looking at Babbel Rosetta. Stone presented at Rosetta Stone really thinking about the research that space blew my mind that was back in two, thousand, fourteen, two, thousand, fifteen. Yeah. So When you think about those systems because they've been around for a while and some of them very good is that a stone has been doing this a pretty high level for a long time before we had cloud computing to new redoing this office CDs. Because I remember. At least one of my daughters maybe both of them took a couple of full programs you know through. through his stump Are there elements of that that of of the language learning process? You think that help move the industry forward or was that always just sort of a fork in on its own I think. Educational Technology has such power especially in twenty twenty. You know anyone who has kids I don't finds this stuff wonderful I think Rosetta stone you're right I think back in the day was really innovative software I haven't seen significant innovation in the last decade I can't I'm under NDA can't tell you what I told her engineering team but my research that is public I mean the. The back end with they're doing the acoustics in the visuals that they show users and most users aren't linguists. An most users aren't fun additions like me. Or mostly incomprehensible. So I felt like there was a huge mismatch between what the back end was doing in the educational pieces of it. Could you actually learn and get better at your pronunciation from these tools? Right. So that's that's a critique on the application of the technology though correct? Yeah. Is opposed to the core technology in terms of being. Listen and. and. That's what I. Mike Critique is the scaffolding or like how it's structured could be significantly rated and their companies like Elsa and blue canoe that are doing the work to make it interpreted. Because we do have back ends that should be able to do this very well.
H3cz to reacquire OpTic Gaming from Immortals Gaming Group
"All right. Let's get into the last word on the street, which is a big one here, and it's all really been all but confirmed. I think it's safe to say, but we just can't officially confirm it is that heck's is buying back optic. Somehow some way. And so finally, the memo of not heck's his optic is actually heck's his optic once more a lot to unpack here. And like I said, this is where the details artificially out yet. So I guess we kind of talk and speculation. That being said friendly reminder it is now nine. Oh, seven PM. October. Fourth Sunday night by the time we finish this. This is the Secret of the trade here we're going to students spend time speculating what this means. By the time we wake up tomorrow all the news and everything will be broken out exactly what it means. That's how that works we spent, and that's what's not surprised. If we hear right after this like one hundred percent confirmation that it's all happened but we know it I mean we we know what's happening. Like we feel pretty confident that this is all going through reportedly already acquired. Often. Gaming immortals brings it back to himself. Now a lot Tim's has lots unpacked. The big thing here is Hector's co-ceo currently energy for those that don't know right he already has a CD. All, slot. With. Being the Chicago Hint Huntsman this would give him a second slot, which reportedly he would have to sell off, and so that starts a whole nother conversation but but this would give him full ownership back of the brand. The content, the brand bringing back the Green Wall I think. This is massive like I. Really a I'd be thrilled for the guy because as much as we you know knock on Hammond and it's fun to do in that sense. The way I feel like the way we do it it's all fun and Games right like. This would be really cool like this would be. I'M NOT GONNA say this list the curse because I curse will follow there is one thing and one thing only that will lift the curse and that if if heck's is brave enough to show his face on this show Reached out to them to even talk about this, we've reached out to heck's multiple times. Said, he'd come on the show. He said he would come on the show news, and then as soon as you start trying to pin a detail in a time, he'll ghost you. It's happened multiple times hence, why the? Yes have hence why the curse is on facts and the only way to lift that cursed tax because I know you're listening is to come on the show and just talk you'd have to apologize even though you probably want to you don't have to. Imagine this dude right now like imagine the cloud nine that he is on. Tim If this all goes down the way we think it's going to go down right? Like he's probably you. Obviously I. Think he stays with energy in the sense in the co- CEO role especially if he has to sell off. The CD L. Spot but to have that branding back for him, I think would really like mean everything in terms for this guy like I do believe he truly one hundred percent regrets letting go about Dick like and I I, think this would kind of confirmed that right that he obviously does regret that decision especially the way it all happened with optic. Jay and all the nonsense like never he never let it go. He never never let they went off to war they broke up they were like dude were breaking up with you I'm going to war It's like I have other girlfriends here like it's over and hacks was like I'm not giving up on you and now they're all home. It's like the notebook. This is heck's and optic is now the notebook and were just in that phase where we're Noah built the home you know heck's built the home and he now the now they're back. I do wish he took back over the optic brand from the CDL perspective though so I, know that's not going to happen because of scum like team that's what's holding it up in. Yeah. Not now him and Andy Miller best dudes I think they're best friends that anyone has ever had and I agree with that. But if the players that Chicago had weren't those players, I truly believe heck's would say, Hey, thank you so much energy for everything you've done I'm this is this is my this is my baby and I got it. You got to choose your baby over you know whatever. So I I one, hundred percent believe in my heart that if it weren't for the players on that team, which is heck's his players. He would go over and just outright own optic in the CDL spot severing ties from Chicago but there's no way you could do that to those players that takes a little bit away from like. The enthusiasm I have for the deal altogether. Yeah. Right to not see that involved in in call of duty obviously because if they sell the brand has gone then from caller duty like older yet. You can't have. You can't have optic branding in cod league than optic content creation branding outside of it while having nothing to do with each other. Yeah like. Owners of spots. You know that's that's the the biggest challenge in. So it will be a little unfortunate that you just you don't see them in cod anymore but there's opens up other opportunities tim like this opens up a whole nother slew of rumours
Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line In Flux Due To Injuries
"Have lots of talk about as it relates the cowboys I just what I think of this team this year and the expectations after Jerry Jones finally made the gutting decision that led to Jason Garrett showing up the building every day with a binder underneath his arm and dutifully hoping that he would. Get a stay of execution cowboy fan celebrated not only the draft pick a CD lamb but a coach was skins. Mike McCarthy hasn't exactly translated into the season that they had hoped for, and we're expecting some of it has to do with injuries bobby and we'll get to those in a second but a lot of teams are having to deal with injuries this year. Yeah. I, mean, the team the cowboys have up here the browns they've got a lot of injuries to deal with I. Mean The seahawks had you know a lot of patchwork stuff that they were doing last Sunday against the cowboys and so injuries are an excuse they're not necessarily a good excuse though for this cowboys team I think they, they definitely are missing some guys. They probably feel a little bit like we're not gonNA know who we are for real until probably mid October when randy gets reinstated fully you get hopefully late and vander aeschbacher. Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the
Who was Sirimavo Bandaranaike
"Today. We're talking about the world's first woman to lead as a prime minister. She defied all expectations to take her position and permanently changed the legacy of her country. Let's talk about CD Malvo Nike. CD Malvo Bundle Nike was born city map rap lot on April Seventeenth nineteen sixteen, and what was then known as the country of Salen. She was the eldest of six siblings. Both her father and mother were prominent in the Sinhalese community. That's an ethnic group that forms the majority of the population of Modern Day Sri Lanka at the time saline was a British colony. Cassation many of the top families in the country took on governmental roles and British names even said, he must father Barnes rat watt was named after prominent British general nonetheless, city must family care deeply about remaining Buddhist and preserving Sinhalese culture wherever they cut when city matern eight her parents sent her to a Convent Boarding School in Colombo the nation's capital under the British colonial rule. This was the best possible option for education. Still, her parents also took care to maintain their cultural traditions native language. When city finish her education she spent years touring the country doing social work including delivering food and medicine. She hiked through jungles and rough terrain to help organize and develop Bilas as a result, she gained a positive reputation throughout the island. In nineteen forty city my married a top government official named Solomon West Ridgeway Dias. Bandaranaike in a grand high profile wedding. The two were considered a perfect match. While city must husband played a more anglicized role in the colonial government city, my herself understood the needs of those living in rural areas. Said Ema, and Solomon had three children. Initially said he must professional role was largely that of an attentive wife. I nineteen forty-eight Salen was headed towards independence from Britain and city Mos home was packed to the brim with her husband's political associates, discussing strategy and the future of the country Solomon viewed his wife's role as a submissive one. Still she became a valuable political consultant. She was the one who convinced him to resigned his political position in nineteen fifty one. After he resigned he created the Sri Lankan Freedom Party or S L F R, which sought Sinhalese control of the country and a democratic socialist government city. Ma. Aggressively campaigned for Solomon in the following years and by nineteen fifty six, he won by a landslide and started instituting left wing and Sinhalese centered policies despite this victory, some of Solomon's political action. So divisions and tensions between salons various ethnic groups including the Tamil people in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he was murdered in his own private garden. City Mo was devastated even so she took action to fight for her husband's legacy. The very next year sitting you took leadership of the Party and was voted in as the world's first woman prime minister she would serve as the leader of the SFR for the following forty years. City must served as prime minister on and off over the next few decades prioritizing the same democratic socialist policies as her husband, she strived to raise the quality of life of her people and to reduce the overall inequality in her country. Following a win in the nineteen seventy election city. Ma introduced a new constitution that ended salon status as a British Commonwealth realm and renamed the country. Sri Lanka. Her focus on empowering Buddhism and the Sinhalese people alienated the Tummy people during one term in power. An uprising against her party had to be defeated with international military aid from India and Pakistan in the nineteen eighties. Economic troubles in the country accusations of corruption led to a crushing political loss by nineteen eighty-three tensions between the Tamil and the majority Sinhalese people boiled over into a bloody civil war that lasted until two thousand nine. Sumita attempted to repair the damage caused by discrimination against the Tamil but the divide was severe and her political power was waning along with her popularity by nineteen ninety, four city Mas Daughter Chandrika became prime minister, and then later the president of the Country Chandrika appointed her mother as prime minister but by then the constitution had changed. So the prime minister position was only supplementary to the role of the president offering little actual power. Serena remained in some form of office until a few months before her death she passed away on election day shortly after casting her vote at the age of eighty four. Though city Malvo's political legacy is complicated. She paved the way for future female heads of state and lead through political hardships with strength.
The Answer is The 5 Minute Pickup
"So I'd asked in their four questions because my brain is just a little bit like. Lately and so I needed some questions to answer for the PODCAST and I'm. Calling this episode you know the answer is the five minute pickup or something like that because that was the answer to at least four different questions within this thing. So I wanted to make sure that you know as I was answering all this different things, I, was putting him into a word doc. I'll do another podcast right answer some more questions but I thought you know there's like four different times in here where in my notes I've said we'll interested pick up. Well, the answer is a five minute pick up and I thought okay. Well, what what are some different questions where the answer is the five minute pickup all right. So here we go. Do. You have any tips for making sure you get completely unpacked from a trip in a timely manner. Are you curious how the answer to this question is GonNa be the five minute pickup So the real answer to this is by the way. Sometimes, when I asked for questions and people start giving me questions I started to feel like wait I feel like these questions make it seem like I, know all the answers to everything and I really don't this is mostly me just going from my experience and also having thought about these things and laid out different strategies in my home over the past eleven years and written about it like I feel like if i. Even, if I had lived for the eleven years working on my own house, getting it to the point where it is now, I wouldn't necessarily be able to answer these questions except for the fact that I've written about it, which means I have like laid out steps I have put together actual strategies and strategies into words, and that's the only reason. I feel like I can answer these questions but sometimes questions like this. Make me panic and go I'm not perfect I don't know everything in my house is not perfect but whatever here So the question was, do you have any tips for making sure making sure No there's no way to make sure of anything you can get complete or you get completely unpacked from a trip in a timely manner. So that the number one way that I manage this is having a designated place for my suitcases. Okay because. which I mean, there's probably people listening going how would you not have a designated place but the reality is sometimes suitcases are these weird things because you don't use them all that often you pull them out. And it's like, Oh, where should I the suitcases but when I I have a designated place, there's a in my bedroom I think I had talked about at different times on the blog. But when my mother in law passed away and we cleaned out her assisted living apartment, she had a little wardrobe that was really kind of her her pride and joy and really was so useful in her little apartment shit. Close, more than confident her closet and they were important to her so there was a little. I. Forget what kind of what it is, but she always called it. Bites what type of what it was, but might be I. Don't know anyway this little wardrobe and and she loved that thing like it was something that she and my father in law had purchased when they first got married in their first department and it really is it's pretty and and so when it came down to it. You know getting rid of stuff I was like Oh. This is one of those things I really hate to get rid of, but I? I made sure I had an actual spot and purpose for it in my home before I brought it home and so what we ended up doing was we have this little space. It's perfectly I measured it to make sure. In our bedroom that used to be, where are my husband's stereo system went which you know stereo systems are not really the thing anymore, which is Kinda. Funny. But like as far as big speakers and things like that but he did keep his turntable. Well, there was a little shelf at the top where we used to have our TV. Like our big boxy TV. There was a little shelf at the top, and it's kind of like this cutout section of the wall, and so it's kind of a weird place. Anyway, we'll the top shelf he put the turntable from hysteria system and that's all he kept. Their. And then our CDs are up there and then this would wardrobe thing fits right in there. Okay. Because I had had some stuff that was kind of putting in that spot anyway that looked a key but once we that wardrobe in there, then those things can go in there. So that's like my camera and lighting equipment for youtube videos and things like that. Where do y'all put your stuff, your youtube videos I know a lot of extra probably duty to. But anyway. So that is there but also had room for. Most. Of Our suitcases if I put my smaller suitcases inside of my larger suitcases. Okay. So it Kinda takes a little bit of finagling but I'm willing to do that because suitcases or something that I want to have easily accessible. Not that we've travelled much in twenty twenty but in general, I travel on it somewhat decently regular basis except for twenty twenty. And if my suitcases are in the attic, it just makes it too much of
Cyberpunk 2077 Head Responds to Crunch Controversy
"Bloomberg, obtained an internal. Email showing that cyberpunk twenty, seventy, seven, developer, CD, project red told employees that six day work weeks would be mandatory ahead of the Games. November. Nineteenth release now, Studios Co founder Marcin Wenski had previously told to a Kotok who that the student would have a non obligatory crunch policy crunch meaning you know crunch time right? Everybody's working heart in the email. CD. Project red? Studio. Head Adam Dowse said quote. I know this is in direct opposition to what we've said about crunch he also added we've extended all other possible means of navigating the situation cyberpunk twenty, seventy seven was delayed from. April sixteenth to September seventeenth and then again to. November nineteenth and the big hangup here is crunches unknown quantity across the industry in a way. That's really a key right now, like middle last couple of years, it's all anybody wants to talk about from a sort of this industry is maturing. We need to do better at how we treat our our our employees maybe even accepting some unionization in a couple of cases which really doesn't exist in the games industry. A lot of these studios will release a gigantic two hundred person produced game, the cost millions to produce, and as soon as it hits the street even if it's wildly successful, they'll lay off almost that entire team. That's not unheard of in this particular case, we're not talking about that. We're talking about this sort of cramming toward the toward the end and a lot of people don't understand how it works in terms of why is there so much cramming toward the end of a video games product cycle, and that's a difficult answer because it's very complicated, but basically, it doesn't matter how. Many times you push your release. There's always something else to be done or do be at feature creep or something had to cut out entirely or well. We have an extra month. Now, we can maybe add this that adds new complications. So before you know it, you're in a situation where now we're really locked in on the November date where a year later than we planned to. Be, with multiple dates that have all been missed in between like at some point, we either have to do this now or we go another year and if they're going to do it now, then they gotta do all hands on deck. The big problem and the reason people are mad is that they came out and acted all progressive in this regard and said, look we're not. GonNa Force it we're not gonNA, make crunch part of our company culture anymore, and we're GONNA lead the way in that regard, and then this memo says, but maybe you're not right now 'cause we got a huge game release coming up and end it is we're all. So stoked for this game

Speeding the Delivery of CAR-T Therapies While Cutting the Cost
"Greg. Thanks for joining US getting so much standing. My pleasure. We're GONNA talk about Cartesian therapies, exuma biotech, and your efforts to develop rapid point of care delivery of these therapies. Let's start with Cartesian therapies themselves out of these therapies work today. Well you know if we were to look at this technology today. And put it in the context of what we do in science and medicine even fifteen years ago. The the thought that we could truly have living medicine with genetically modified. LYMPHOCYTES in the body would have been unheard of it. And really I think the basic process of taking one cells from the body. In reprogramming genetically lymphocytes in returning them back into a patient to retrain those cells to see cancer antigens much in the same way we've done with monoclonal antibodies in the past, but wiring all that into itself is what is made Carta. Medicine which has been both exciting in is of course had. Equally that the number of challenges in in many different areas. Well. How are these therapies typically prepared and administered? Well it's a complicated process that has. A tremendous amount of technical skill required as well as logistics so typically. When a subject is entering into a trial or on therapy for approved medicines, their blood is drawn and separated into white blood cells and then shipped usually on a plane to a central manufacturing facility where those cells then are taken into a cleanroom, they are activated their genetically modified they're grown for about. Fifteen days, and then they are prepared just like you would with drug. And then ship back to the site. So there's a tremendous amount of time that can be lost for patients during this period and then once those cells. Are received. Back The patient receives Olympic depleting chemotherapy regimen to kind of make space. And then the cells are infused and at that point they take off and they're on their own. These cell therapies have been more successful in hematological answers than in solid tumors. What why is that? Well I. Think if you look at the history of the Field Dang, what you will find is that. One of the principal challenges in building cellular therapies has been it. They can be incredibly potent. So in the case of something, we know very well like CD nineteen, this isn't a liquid tumor setting those cells with CD nineteen will eliminate. All targets in the body that express CD nineteen, and this is found in many lymphomas. leukaemias. But the problem is in the case of CD nineteen, you're eliminating all of the normal cells make CD nineteen, which are called E. Cells, and this is tolerable in the case of liquid tumors. But when you think about the antigens targets that we go after in solid tumors, those are often expressed in tissues that. Not Be safe if the immune system were to attack it. So we've been forced to really take steps back on how well we can make a car for solid tumors to try and make them smarter to help recognize friend from foe. So the great efficacy I think that you've seen in relapse refractory ael l.. As well as in diffuse large B. Cell Lymphoma, and now also I think exciting we in places like multiple myeloma getting that stain level of efficacy in solid tumors has required that people really think about the precision inside of the problem to make sure can get a potent car but also one that is safe.
Rebranding the PhD with Chris Humphrey
"Really happy to have you here especially given the years of experience you have helping people with masters and Ph ds like just mentioned finding their path and I think a word. That I think is really important is in the abundant number of career opportunities that are out there I think this one key thing that that people are going to. Wealth people need to understand to kind of break this this feeling that they may be failing at life or at least at the their professional life if the. End Up leaving academia after after graduate. School. Yeah it is. It is. So hard to describe when you see the light bulb come on somebody's head in new. People people just say. It. Yeah. And it. It is. What always of joys me on like just when somebody says down they felt or how lost or how they didn't know what to do, and then they say that you I when you're okay now I just. Found the way forward or hope or something you know you just why would why would have stopped? Doing what I'm doing I mean because that's the greatest thing you can do. Even if you change one person's mind or sometimes I talk to one hundred people you know I think if I could. Difference that many people but not like yourself day job what you're doing on your the more that can do it that more intense. We can have and we can reach more people in our own countries or in different languages. or different backgrounds. So yeah, it's it's cool to fail that there's more there's more of us than. Doing this doing this thing. You don't just listen think about being a PhD that just you just have this unique. Bonding Experience With With with anybody else like I just met you but you know it just. It's strange. We everyone knows what they went through, and then just you can just click with people and. It's powerful as powerful stuff. So as I mentioned, we talked before about Chris's PhD and you can find our full one hour and a half conversation on the Papaya she youtube channel. We eventually also talked about what led up to his post doc. Chris. Was Now considering after his post doc and after the his after applying to some lecturing positions and not having the materialize thinking. Okay. What am I going to do an end looking at the non-academic landscape and seeing where he was going to fit? How did you go about that? Were there appears around you who were also having that reflection. How. Was that process? How easy was that process or not easy? I was that that. Exploration. Let's say. He is kind of mixed because I think on the one hand. As I kept getting rejections from the academic jobs, Kinda go to feeling of. Like feeling of running out of time or this is this isn't going well. If I could just get academic job everything would be. Okay. So that was like a downside to it but on the other hand you know. I was really excited by the things that I was saying around me like like the Internet was something that was just really taking off in the late ninety s and I was just fascinated by the internet and this whole and. I mean I. I say Democratic Dissemination of information which is. Not. Disney triple the time easily, but the way. To access to information or study or learning the United. States can be quite elitist or privileged or and causal money and time, but just like the idea that. The anybody can just access any type of information videos and things as well. It was coming along time and could learn anything. They had the Internet connection did just Exchange. My view of the world and so excited me as an educator and as a scholar, this potential and always really enthused by that and could see this trans transformative potential of it and so that's when I kind of thought. Well, this could be an area where. You I would be happy and excited to work in, and then I had to try and figure out. Well, how do I get to that from medieval studies? kind of like the opposite. Of this new of this new techy technological thing. But then I figured out. There was this area of e e learning with a training where people were taking courses that which Clause three more even vote on a CD.

Looking googling jobs, you know learning jobs based training and I saw that they were these jobs out Aaron. Didn't necessarily know how to do them. I felt confident that if I applied job I reckon I could I could do that and so that was my plan B. Really that. Stuff didn't work out then come at the end of my funding. This was going to be.

"They typically have lower overhead which means they get to pass the savings along to customers in the form of higher interest rates. But I will say that. Local community banks and credit unions can offer very competitive CD rates when they're trying to attract more deposits. So you really need to shop around to find the best rate now. Let's talk about something called. Cd Ladder Ring. This is a common strategy to maximize earnings by using multiple CDs. Lateran just like you know crawling up a ladder you buy CDs with different maturity dates an annual yields each one represents a rung on a CD quote Unquote Ladder. That goes from shorter terms of two longer terms. So imagine that you bought a hundred thousand dollar traditional five-year CD. Paying one point. Seven five percent now. Think about how bummed out you'd be if you put all that money into a five year CD you locked it up and in interest rates went up. They went up to two point seven five percent. So you're missing out on a whole percentage point on your money if that happened. Let's say the following year you'd be missing out on earning more interest because you locked up your money at the lower rate at one point seven five percent for five years and you can't make a withdrawal without paying a penalty lateran. You might choose to buy five CDs with that hundred thousand dollars instead of just one for instance you could buy a twenty thousand dollar one year. Cd A twenty thousand dollar two years CD. Twenty thousand dollar three years CD and so on up to a five year CD after one year when the very first CD reaches maturity you could use all or a portion of the money to purchase another five-year CD so as your shortest CD matures. You can use that money to buy a longer term. Cd that presumably has a higher interest rate so this technique of lathering protects you against missing out on higher returns if interest rates do rise. You're going to get more money and get greater flexibility at the same time as each. Cd matures you've got the option to renew it at the current rate or to use your money for something completely different so you can use a CD.

"The minimum amount required to open a CD is generally five hundred dollars but it could be much higher depending on the institution and the type of CD that you buy and you can put an unlimited amount of money into a CD but to be safe. What I recommend is that you always stay under the FDIC or the NC. You a limit that I spoke about the two hundred fifty thousand dollars and that limit is per account holder per institution. So if you've got more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars you might want to spread it out at different institutions. So let's talk about what the downsides are of getting a CD that you know. The upside. Is I mentioned is a guaranteed return? The downside is that your money is locked up for a specific term that might range from a few months to maybe five years. So you get to choose the term when you're purchasing the CD and when that term ends you get back you're principle plus the accumulated interest? Cd's with longer terms generally yield the highest interest rates. However if you need the money and you need to withdraw money from a CD before it expires and that expiration date is known as the maturity date in that case you typically must pay a penalty and the penalty amount is typically calculated as an amount of interest depending on the terms so for example a one year CD might charge the equivalent of three months worth of interest if you dip into it so it's crucial to be sure that you will not need to withdraw any amount of money before the maturity date when you're buying a CD. So I mentioned that there are different types of CDs. There are some with a fixed term and interest rate..

There are the their possible vulnerabilities, you could be introducing and some cases it could be really really intrusive. So you gotta be careful now this is not to say that the decline of the compact disc was instantaneous that the CD form factor when obsolete overnight it's stuck around for a really long time. In fact, it's only been fairly recently that some of the larger retailers have kind of moved away from selling CDs in the winter of. Two thousand eighteen retailer best buy announced that it was going to stop carrying compact discs in its stores starting on July first two thousand eighteen target. Meanwhile, when a slightly different route, they said they would continue so compact discs, but they would do it on consignment. So in other words, instead of ordering a large inventory of CDs and trying to sell them, you know, paying for that inventory trying to sell the CDs. And then if they didn't sell stock they would send it back to the the studio for credit for future stock instead of doing that. Now target says no here's how we're going to do it. We will sell copies of CDs. And for every copy we sell will send a little bit of money back to the studio. But otherwise, we're not doing it. So if you don't wanna work with us on that, you're not gonna have your CDs. Hell he'll carry it in our stores because people are buying so few of them now and it puts the risk of inventory on the music studios. Right. Other than on targets stores, and it just changes where the the the risk ends up falling that change has continued. Right. And really you could say that the writing was on the wall by two thousand fourteen when digital music sales over the internet were eclipsing CD revenue and even then digital was on the decline. It wasn't. It was already on the downward slope it had peaked at at that point. And was it was outperforming CDs, but both CDs ended it'll sales were starting to to lag behind like I said a moment ago in our next up Assode, we're going to explore the rise of the digital file Arab which leads into what we're seeing today with consumption moving more towards streaming services rather than downloading tracks or buying physical media. One thing. I want to shift you before I end this episode would be the evolution of video media in the wake of the D, the digital versatile disc or DVD evolved from the compact disc, it was effectively the second generation of the CD technology, even as companies like Sony and Philips were trying to get the D into the consumer market. They were simultaneously researching how to improve that technology in order to store even more data on it, including video with sound. That development would mostly happen behind closed doors for a little more than a decade among various companies by the mid nineteen nineties. There were two formats that had emerged from our indeed departments they weren't on the market yet. But they were almost ready and one was with Sony and Philips they had developed technology that they called the multimedia CD or M C D. Meanwhile, you had another group that. That was including the Time Warner group and to Sheba, and they had developed a different approach called these super density or SD disc. Neither side was eager to engage in an all out format war like the one that pitted. Betamax versus VHS and fractured the market. So instead, they decided that they were going to work together to develop a common standard between them, and it was mostly based off the SD format from two Sheba this became the DVD and by nineteen Ninety-six companies were starting to produce DVD players, which originally went on sale in Japan, and then expanded from there and like CD players when they first came out they were pretty darn expensive. But it actually the the path for DVD to hit widespread adoption it happened much more quickly than CD players did like a CD player..

One of the big reasons or actually two of the big reasons, why CD's weren't lucky was a double whammy it was in the form of computer advances and the development of audio compression file formats, primarily the MP three. We'll go into more detail about MP threes and other file formats and our next episode, but they definitely hurt CD sales. As time went on in two thousand the music industry. Saw a decline in CD sales in every year after that that decline continued and it got more dramatic in an effort to fight off the inevitable and also to combat piracy as computers were getting better at ripping music from CDs and writing it to a different disk companies began to incorporate digital rights management or DRM on their CDs. The idea was that this DRAM would limit how you could actually use the compact disc Sony's B M G music label did this. To disastrous results. It's one of the the big warning signs warning stories of DRM and unintended consequences or potentially unintended. Some argue that they were completely intentional consequences, which makes it even worse. So what was this all about? Well, let's say you go out and you buy an album that was from Sony's BMG label, and this is around two thousand five or two thousand six you buy the CD and you put in a normal CD player. Well, it would work just the way it was supposed to no problems there. You're just putting it in stereo system. Or maybe your car a little portable CD player. Whatever it works, just fine. However, if you were to put it into your computer, either to listen to it or maybe you wanted to rip a copy. So that way you had a backup something like that. Something else happened. There were some code on the disks that would prompt your computer to automatically install some software on your PC. The purpose of the software. At least the stated purpose was to prevent someone from making unauthorized copies of that compact disc in other words to prevent people from pirating the music, but the software also opened up a back door vulnerability on the person's PC. Meaning it was possible for a third party to infiltrate that computer and take control of it. In fact, essentially, what was happening was the CD was prompting the computer to phone home to Sony BMG's servers and to give information about how the person was using that CD. What was there? What were there? Listening habits. It was kind of spying on the consumer. And you could argue that the Sony B M G D RAM software was behave. Like, malware, like, a Trojan horse or backdoor vulnerability the discovery of the DRM led to class action lawsuits and a lot of pressure from the industry and eventually Sony would stop the practice completely by two thousand seven it was not a pretty picture..

"To the future it factors into the plot in the original back to the future. Anyway, by the mid nineteen eighty s Sony was trying to replicate the success of the walkman with a CD player. And the result was the disc, man. D fifty the world's first portable CD player. And while the d fifty had some shortcomings, it truly was an amazing technological achievement. See the D fifty was small, and it was about the size of maybe five or six CD cases stacked on top of each other. So that meant all the circuitry and all the components of a full-size CD player needed to be shrunk down to fit this tiny form factor. And this was just a couple of years after the full sized version of a CD player had come out. So it's hard to explain exactly how challenging this was. But here's an example, the optical path for the laser was a huge obstacle to work around the size, constraints Sony engineers had to figure out how to fold the optical path to make enough space for it to have the laser position in the right way for the disk on top of that the engineers had to custom build all the circuits. For the deficiency to both fit inside this small case and not immediately drained the batteries of all their juice, even so the d fifty was pretty power thirsty gadget as walkman central a fund website has explained you could buy a battery holder that would plug into the defeat to supply the electricity would.

"Once those price tags are more in line with our own personal budgets, some thankful for early adopters. I don't quite make the money to be won most the time anyway in the first year of sales Sony, sold twenty thousand CD players, which is not an enormous number. But it was significant for a brand new technology those going head to head with vinyl and the emerging cassette market and other companies besides Sony and Philips began to make players as well. And it's here that I mentioned that the first CD title, according to some sources wasn't Abba, nor was it a symphony. But was rather Billy Joel's album. Fifty second street in the last episode. I mentioned Abba and classical music were the first albums pressed to CD other sources call Billy Joel's album, fifty second street the first CD album. And then the guardian said. Says the first album recorded specifically with the CD medium in mind was dire. Straits brothers in arms in nineteen eighty-five. So it may well be that all of these are true to some extent that Abba. And the symphony were pressed to CD that fifty second street was it debuted. And then one of the formats debuted on was the CD and that brothers in arms came out specifically four CDs and was engineered for that purpose. Maybe that's what it all means. All I can tell you is that history tends to be complicated. And there are a lot of stories out there that at least on first glance seemed to contradict each other. Well, nineteen Ninety-three the music industry. Racked up sixteen point seven million dollars in CD sales. That's a lot of cash but vinyl albums were bringing in one point nine billion dollars that same year. So nearly two billion compared to CDs at sixteen point seven. Cassette tapes were not that far behind vinyl in nineteen eighty three and the following year and eighty four cassette sales surpassed, vinyl and kept going strong and CDs were laying the foundation for future success. So this is what kind of set the tone at least in the United States for vinyl to go on the decline. Cassettes to rule the eighties and for CDs to be well positioned to take over after that Sony, even tried to get a jump on portable CD players in the very very early days of the technology back in nineteen seventy nine Sony had released the walkman, they portable cassette player that was a popular accessory in the nineteen eighties. Just watch any comedy from the nineteen eighties or set in the nineteen eighties. And you'll likely see one, you know, like back.

"A pop in really better like that band before you plop. Down the cash for their latest album. I found a review for the C D P one a one player online which revealed some other interesting tidbits, for example, the prototype model that Sony had shown off earlier played discs vertically with the playing surface parallel to the front of the player, the CD P one one went with what would become the more traditional orientational for most CD players with a horizontal tray that would slide out to accept a CD before sliding back into the player. The review also went into how the CD would allow you to do things that you couldn't do with other types of recorded media and allows you to to skip to specific tracks or sometimes they called him bands on the CD not bands as in musical bands. But bands and bands of of recording so track one track to or band one Bantu made it really easy to select a specific passage or song on the CD. And it also. The review marvelled, and how you could quickly skim through a track, and you could hear a sped up version of the music as you were going through either fest sporting or rewinding, but while it was sped up. It didn't increase in pitch. You know, if you increase the the rotational speed of turntable than the pitch of the record increases as well. Something that lead to never ending hours of entertainment when I would put a thirty three rpm record on a turntable but switched the turntable to forty five rpm. So that everything sounded like it was sung by the chipmunks. You really haven't listened to pink Floyd's the wall until you've listened to the chipmunks sing pink Floyd's the wall. Anyway, that didn't happen with CDs because it was an digital format. It wasn't an analog signal. That was being sped up and with a pitch increasing. It was literally just skipping through the digital file. So you would get the sped up. Effect. But the pitch remained the same. Another option that the review mentioned was the option to play a track on repeat the parenting that merited special mentioned because it's again, something that you could not easily do on vinyl or cassette. You could do it. Like, if you listen to a particular track on vinyl after that track is finished playing you could get up walk over to the turntable, gently lift the stylus gently move it back to the beginning of that track drawback down and listen to it again. 'cause that's where worse because you had to push stop hit rewind push play. Find out where you are in the track. Maybe you've gone too far. Maybe haven't gone far enough adjust that way, see these made it so much easier. You can just hit a little button. And it would repeat the song. You liked as many times as you want it until you got tired of it, and you told to stop happens to be baby shark might just leave it on for weeks at a time for your child. Anyway, the CD player really started to get popular in Japan pretty quickly and Europe followed not too long after that it took longer to get traction in the United States and part of that was just logistical because the manufacturing facilities for the players. And for the CDs were all in Japan, and those facilities were already chugging away to meet domestic demand that left very little breathing room to produce units for the US market. And in fact in the beginning, there are only two manufacturing facilities in the entire world. There were making compact discs, and they were each owned by Philips and Sony, and that price was a really big barrier. To like a lot of people were willing to jump in. There was a limited number of of material out there for the players and they were really expensive. Meanwhile, cassettes and records were relatively cheap. It would take some time for the price to come down for CDs to start to gain on cassettes. But boy Howdy. When it happened. It happened. Big time the demand for compact discs in Japan, led to more investment in the industry and soon there were six manufacturing facilities and not long after that it grew to forty manufacturing plants that were churning out compact, discs, the technology was gaining momentum. And with the increased output came improvements in manufacturing with more efficient processes, which led to a steady decrease in manufacturing costs, which meant companies could sell their products for less money, while still maintaining a profitable business..

I wouldn't mind revisiting again someday. Maybe looking at some of the forgotten CD roms that were hugely influential or popular in are largely forgotten. Now for many, many years I subscribed to much of Technet which was a technical service allowing you to preview and do local instals of all the software that Mike self sold for development purposes. So you pay them a few hundred pounds a year. And basically every I think every month they sent you these folders full of discs, CD ROM discs. And then I had this big conduct a binder that they, they gave you when you signed up that you kept them and see you would throw away old ones replaced with new ones who's a fun time wasn't an and yeah, I had this massive bind full of own c.. The every single piece of software much self selling. Do you remember when you finally through that thing away? I, it wasn't that I think it was only when I moved house recently. I finally got rid of it. I'm I got rid of another one that actually was for the games. We gaze, which kind of copied from the original discs yourself. So I put the original discs away and I would use the copays and course they go scratch something and not yet there was about two hundred and fifty goes in that none of which I played anymore run. Stupid thing is I threw out, and now I find myself going to want to. I have to go out and buy the game again. No steam go to games or something like that. So we want to thank you guys for we do get some feedback. We're going to save that for next week because we're kind of long in the tooth here, fun topic, David, that was fun. I liked it. You guys got a topic you'd like us to cover for, keeps trolling specially with tech one. Let us know. We happily talk about it. Send us feedback the show at Technion podcast dot com. You can also go to my neck dot com or technician podcast dot com and leave a feedback there, Steve, we've got your feedback. We'll talk about that next week, but David see next week. See then by.

"Or you know stuff that was the slightly better than that on the MAC. But the thing is sitting nothing like what we have today. No way you, you know, computers can generate multiple polyphonic sounds using genuine samples, and they have the power to make it sound like real easy. You didn't have that byte meant. So again, that was transformative the fact that you could have real music real speech recorded speech playing during a game, and you know the thing you talked about all the CD roms on the shelves. The reason for that was because it became a competitive alms rice won't. Everybody wants to see that could read the CDs quicker because that meant you had less gaps in the game because sometimes GD would get stuff so polls as it pulled data off the drive, or I remember playing missed originally on a to act CD ROM and you'd click something and you'd literally have to wait for the next pitcher to load isn't access the dust. And then I remember playing the same game on like thirty two acts CD-rom and it was flawless. It just gives an excellent, but. Downsides of the the high speed CD. Roms. Is you end up with something sending Lanka headdress? Yes. What if you want to know kind of the origins of how people design websites and stuff like that. You need only look at the CD-rom craze because that is kind of where using hypertext like in mass or hypercard like messed, where you click something and something else comes up. Sound familiar. You do it every day when you're on the internet. Yep. But just the interactive where you put your mouse over something and something happens fluidly in in great graphics and all of that started with CD-ROM. So if you want to trace back where what we think is the modern web where it kind of originated from, I don't think you have to look any farther than designers who are creating some fantastic content like the the Star Trek onto PDR missed where it started or atom the inside story. You know, that's where it started. That's where the inspiration came from because they didn't have anything before that to work from. They started this whole kind of interactive graphics and you know, you click this, and this thing happens. That's where it started. And if you have, if you just want a very simple linear on the standing of how far we've come in twenty to twenty five years, CD ROM six hundred and fifty megabytes. Yeah. What now for about five dollars, you can get to kick a bite USB, flash drive. Yeah, it's amazing what what we do is society. Yeah, with the limited technology of the time. And for those who think we're kind of at the pinnacle now you have no idea. It's going to come and time very soon where physical media of any kind is irrelevant because this is going to be cloud based. Now, of course, congress just means bigger server farms and hard drive somewhere. You still need the physical thing, but on your desktop on your phone, you're not gonna need storage because it's going to be weird, have superfast networks where everything's just there. But this is I think, a hugely significant invention that probably is pooh-poohed as all that was this nineties thing as those kind of silly. No, the CD ROM was a massive industry. I remember when it collapsed, but I also remember when it really became popular and I don't think it gets enough recognition for. What it really led to. Yeah. And this is really only the loss. Won't find to seven years on, say that pieces of stop shipping with an optical drive standard. They went to DVD on. Remember Paul, the sweet one of one of them apples big selling points of the island sweet from the early two. Thousands was the family came with DVD, which was optical optical disc creation sulfur. I remember the Matt coming with software..

"If you were a Star Trek fan at all, you own the CD. ROM. It was awesome. Worked on both MAC and PC. You know, it covered all the TV shows next generation Voyager all the films up to ninety five. But it was this encyclopedia of all the Star Trek goodness, you couldn't help, but be a fan of Star Trek. If you pop this in started exploring and there was hundreds of hours worth of content created for this. It almost felt like the ultimate fan website, if you will. It was amazing and also had interfaced get kind of made you feel you on the enterprise using a console on the address. Yeah, it was. It made other beeps and boobs and it was such a good disc, but as good as that was, there was one CD ROM that outshined everything else and everybody had a copy even if they didn't play it. And that's mostly because this desk the CD ROM disc was abundant for men, manufacturers in their external CD ROM dry. Lives as well as a lot of computer makers, including apple would include this in the box, and it was a game that was based around pitchers. There was no moving video to speak of. Not really. There was a couple black and white fuzzy ones on purpose, but it was pitchers in you move through this game by clicking something in the next pitcher would come up and it was beautifully rendered. It was unlike anything you saw before it was called Myst and Myst was amazing ahead. This ambient sound and the whole thing is a giant puzzle for older listeners. I guarantee you had a copy a messed at one time or another, whether you played it or not was irrelevant this. This was a game changer. There was never. It wasn't almo- almost wasn't a game. It was an exploration and it was just looking at stuff and moving around and there's the switches and there was nobody guiding you. Okay. You gotta do this, but you would discover these puzzles and to to solve a puzzle. You had to do something else. And it was laid out logically, it wasn't one of these things that, hey, remember in the first level we saw that. I don't know a block that didn't seem to do anything while I hope you picked it up and kept it because that's going to be the thing that you have to use to win this game. No, it wasn't illogical like that. It made sense. Yeah. The thing thing about missed. It was a game that just wasn't possible before the CD wrong. It wasn't absolutely. You know, you couldn't do anything because it was displaying pre random pictures. Rather than that, she's in the graphics hardware in the in the computer. It looks. It looked so well, it lasts only for the future, yes, whose photo realistic. Look, if you go back and look at their original drawings, it looks like ads on your computer, and that's because we've got Hirose screens and, but you gotta remember what this was played on very what we would consider our lower resolution color screens, six forty by four eighty. If you were lucky six. Yeah. You know, maybe thirty two bit color. If you're lucky, it originally came out on the MacIntosh and it was originally created on hypercard. So the guys who created a random Robin Miller, they were fans of hypercard and they wanted to do something with this cool technology for those who don't know what hypercard is. We'll talk about that. The future will be Wikipedia entry for us. Our Wicky trolling entry for us, but it was mesmerizing iron. I just remember the sounds if someone turns this on and I can't see it and I just hear the sun. There was no, like musical score or anything. It's this ambient sound immediately say the clever thing about the thing about CD-rom wants because CD was also an audio format. You could have stereo sound kit that audience appropriate promptly rented audio tracks. All the CD as well, and then have the computer play those while it was displaying data. So you could have a proper soundtrack. And this is back in back inside when you if you're lucky to sixteen bit sound blaster call that did eletronic music..

"Yeah, it was kind of like the, I m d b, but it was. What was his name? Roger Ebert. And it was like movie reviews. It was awesome. You can go in. You could see some audio clips or hear some audio clips. Video clips. There was movie history on it pitchers. It was like. Nothing. It was interactive. You can click things and things would have it was awesome. And it was stuff like that that expanded what you could do with your computer. The CD ROM was really one of the driving factors of making getting a home computer, a wise investment for a family yet because you had stuff like atom the inside story, remember that it was on every single shelf at every electronic store the dissect it, or you know the cutout skull get looking. I think it was doling Kinsley who did a whole load of very high quality interactive CD roms on various subjects. He human Baldi and space travel were coupled to take the remember. And the thing is well, is that what. Cdrom allowed people to do was before before that Kapito magazines had covered this and there were floppy. You're on. They had know they had a few programs. Everything was tiny when the CD ROM came out all of a sudden you could have full demos of new software that was demos of things a lot myself word and access and debates and things like that. The cut down versions of the whole piece of self west. You could try them out. They distributed whole copies of old operating systems. We'll CD-rom so you could try them our home. Remember this is pre internet. You could not fit most people. If you had a connectivity, had you had a fifty six k modem at best. You're just cook, don't download this stuff because it would take too long cost too much you would you'd be on the phone for two days and cost an with a two day coal. It was. It was just it was just not feasible, whereas the CD ROM allowed us to get this stuff. The the games that became very successful would distributors countdown trial versions. Try and encourage people to buy the Atra full game, and it goes a whole subset of people who who actually just never bought before game. They just play play today. The demolitions so forth, saying Romeo, some of the, some of the things that really kind of drove it, though it wasn't the promise of all the storage. It was the content. So while we applaud Dennen for creating the standard, a lot of different standards were created and never amounted to anything. This was different because as a society, we were already used to CD ROM. So this was something that was intimately familiar with us a. We had the storage capacity and you know, we understood this format. We, we have desks that we were already using. So we, we had the the sleeves at home. We have the shelves that were exactly the right size to hold the CD. Well, more importantly from distribution point, if you, you could tight y'all CD ROM image and have it pressed a commercial DSE depressing Plum. For pending being up to create CDs was the cost of creating for pre discs, which were versatile thing yet for software distribution of any kind, not just magazines, but if you have a program, you won't. So we're enormous. Whereas CD as you say, you could turn out in a very Cassini pressing is very quick. You could turn out a very large number of disks in a very short periods. Homage made a lot cheaper as well as the discs were physically bigger. So you could have a, you know, you can have all that dice roll, man. You could put what lots of extras on that you could put. I remember of software distributors would sell, sell you a program, but then there would be directly on the CD rom with trials of some of their other business. So you could try those get magazines CD roms that would have all these demos and QuickTime movies that you could watch interviews at the magazine did, and it was awesome. All of that is before as you mentioned the CD Risa was development of the sudden you start creating your own disks home. So to the big big things that I remember David. And I think you were have fun memories of both of these as well. And of course, we didn't know each other back in the nineties, but still number one, Star Trek. I'm not DEA. Yeah..

"We went from on a clear. Remember this. We went from the common data storage, medium of the floppy disk of one point full full megabytes, Susan, nothing, which is nothing that's less than the photo on your iphone nowadays. Yeah. And you had to have whole programs? I remember getting copies of myself office from from my Safina was working in the in the mid nineties. Yeah, and it will come in like fifty-six, floppy disks you have you have to load. Prevailing. Those floppy disks were bad, which had. Yeah, and so that's kind of where we were, and then the CD ROM came out on the back of the CD audio disc and the CD ROM with basically was the same technology, but just storing pure dice set of audio streams. Six hundred and fifty megabytes. Yeah, and then they squeeze a bit more avenue. I think it my thinking logically went up to roundabout six, eight thousand seven hundred defending of your February was where kind of maxed out. And at that point we got the DVD, but let's concentrate on the CD ROM format. It was invented by Dennen for those who don't remember. I think Dennis still around, but Dalian's. Really high end audio manufacturer of component stereo systems that I didn't always made really good stuff. I don't know if I ever actually owned a piece of equipment, but I always liked their stuff was always cool, cool looking and I was letting the Nightline so then insanitary coal. Yeah, it did. It's a good one. So they invented this technology and unveiled it in eighty four alongside Sony, and it really did for those who don't remember it. There was a craze from the mid eighties little bit beyond that because I don't. It didn't take off right away, but just caught the end of the eighties through, let's say, ninety eight ninety nine somewhere in there. Ninety eight because ninety nine is when the DVD really started hitting big. So for not quite a decade, but almost a decade. CD-rom was the preferred. Method of getting content for computer users, and I remember going into circuit cities and best buys and places like that. Little computer shops looking at external CD ROM drives and. There were shelves full of content. I'm not talking about just games. There were games, but more importantly, there was all of this content that we would consider. Well, that would make more sense as a webpage. You're absolutely right, but there was no websites and there were all these interactive things that you could buy and and few in. You could also back up your own data. I remember getting my first CD ROM. It was built into a MAC and I immediately copied every single floppy drive that I owned onto my hard drive and immediately burned all of them to a couple of CD roms. But even that they Bill the ability to create your own CD's came lace. I remember my first CD ROM drive. I remember this quite vividly at bolt. This PC from a column kind of competes affair. And you know it was. It wasn't brand new, but you know, it was pretty good for the day, and I played doom and stuff like that on did a bit work on it and everything, but it didn't have a CD ROM drive. And I remember going with my first wife at the time to another competes affair. And you know, we sold the internal CD-roms there and they would. They wouldn't cheat. No. She said she said, oh, you know, you should buy one. I clearly remember taking that thing. I'm how it I was and fitting into my computer, and then I had some CD-rom covetously come with a couple of magazines I've been put in and how different using the computer was. Then you had someone, you know, people really kind of built on the fullness you. You did have streaming video on these very quality commensurable we have now on these discs, you had remember much soft cancer, the encyclopedia program or. Absolutely. Yeah. Which was like Wikipedia on the disk. Yeah. And that also had video and photos and stuff like that. Of course, it was. It wasn't great compared to nowadays because it was great compared to what we had at the time which you even though say, compare to it was great. It was fantastic.
