Iran's top nuclear scientist killed
"April 2018, the Israeli Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, made a dramatic presentation in English of what he said was a huge Israeli intelligence hall. He said it proved that Iran had pursued a nuclear weapons program. On the stage. Behind him were shelves full of ring binders and dozens of CDs. Microphone in hand. He gave a lengthy power point presentation. At one point. He emphasized that one off the main Iranian nuclear scientists was a man called Mohsen Factory today. Key part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how Dr Muslim Fuck is a dead head of project about put it, remember that name Fuck is a day. So here's his director. That's right here. And he says the general aim is to announce the closure of project Ahmad. But then he adds special activities. You know what that is? Special activities will be carried out under the title of Scientific Know how developments. Remember that name, said Mr Netanyahu will on Friday. Most in factories today was killed by a gunman just outside Tehran. Iran has accused Israel of the assassination on the president has sent. Rouhani said that the killing of their top nuclear scientists will not slow down Iran's nuclear program. This is what Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif, tweeted on Friday. Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today, this cowardice with serious indications of an Israeli roll shows desperate warmongering of the perpetrators. Iran calls in the international community and especially the European Union. And their shameful double standards and condemn this act of state terror. Well, there's been no response so far from Israel. Let's speak to the BBC's chief International correspondent Lease Do Set, whose lives on the line from Saudi Arabia is Capital, Riyadh and in the region as a whole lease. Presumably people are still digesting this news and the significance of it. Adjusting and worrying about the news. I have to say, because the region divides along those who would firmly back this Alliance, If you like between Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, the Saudi leadership on by the team of President Trump in regarding Iran is the main enemy in the region, and that would include the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who recently signed Theo peace deals as they were called with the state of Israel, But countries like Iraq Lebanon. Syria, which have very close ties to Iran, one way or the other will be worried because what we've seen in the past when retaliation comes and it is certain to calm in some form at some time. It is often executed in the region through proxies. So I think the region as a whole is nervous. But they were nervous already because there is a growing sense in the region that this is being regarded but particularly by Israel and Saudi Arabia as a last moment to try to inflict crippling blows on Iran's nuclear program before the new team of President Biden enters the White House, talking about Joining the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal that President Trump pulled out of and has been trying to destroy ever since. If that retaliation is, as you say, certain to common, it will probably happen. In the region. When you look back at what Iran has done in the past, when faced with similar situations, what has it tended to do by way of retaliation? This is a very sensitive moment fraught with risk and Iran. Knows that everyone knows that and not not just in the region, but in many Western capitals as well. The If Iran retaliates now there is a risk and it knows it that there will be another retaliation and that the region could again be plunged into even greater attention. Just as a new administration takes takes pop power in Washington, and this will jeopardize what is already going to be a very, very difficult effort. Try to get a negotiating track underway between the United States and Iran and the other big powers who were involved in the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal. So it Zaveri dangerous because Iran summon Iran maybe thinking we must retaliate because many will remember that after the assassination of Awesome Sulamani almost a year ago. The remained scene is the main architect of of Iran's policies across the region. There was a retaliation but a limited one. It wasn't a to use a word that's often used a spectacular one. But Iran must be wondering now. Well, what will we do This time? Our honor is at stake. Our strategic interests are at stake, but they may also fear that they're being Baited If you like that, if they attack that will be a signal for an even greater escalation by its enemies in the region. It's very, very, very difficult balance now. And everyone knows that If the Israelis are behind this, what are they? What are they thinking about the possible consequences of it? Do you believe Benjamin Netanyahu has had one driving ambition. You heard him in 2000 and 18. I wasn't the only time he brought a big power point presentation to the world stage to warn the world about the evils of Iran but the evils of there not just a nuclear program but of weaponized dead nuclear program. It has to be said that Yah yah! YAH also investigated and believe that that program was shelved in 2000 and three. They also talked to the report about most in factories a day. But since then, Israel, Israeli and American intelligence have believed despite Iran's denials that that program is continuing, so I think I mean, I can't put myself in the shoes of Israeli intelligence, the Saudi leadership, but Regard the greatest danger as Iran. Anything else pales in comparison least Thank you very much. Indeed. At least two set in Riyadh some thoughts from my guests and Holly Dagres. I mentioned at the start of the program that you're Appearance today is timely. What's your take on this? Well, I think we need to look for a moment at that Power Point presentation and April 2018 after Netanyahu gave his power point to an audience of one that being President Donald Trump. Weeks later, he withdrew unilaterally from the Iran nuclear agreement and reimpose sanctions as part of his maximum pressure policy. We're now a little over two years into that maximum pressure policy, and it has proved to be a failure. It has neither changed the country's behavior nor trigger the regime's collapse in Iran. And so what's been happening here is that in the past couple of weeks U S President Donald Trump actually asked his national security team, at least after reports tell us and sought options to strike Iran over its nuclear program. And so while it was, he was dissuaded from a military strike. This possibly could have been one of the options that was floated to respond to the latest nuclear build up, which is that as part of The sanctions. Iran has decided for the past year it is going to it's going tol continue aspects or breach aspects of the nuclear court until these sanctions are removed. So essentially, this could very much be a last ditch effort by the Trump administration to tempt her on to retaliate. And scuttle any future diplomacy.
Using global events as lures for malicious activity.
"At this point. I think i can even say it rounds up to have been doing this twenty years and we see different and new mauer campaigns every week right there's always someone doing something new tweaking something finding a new way to do it but in doing so there are certain patterns that are always habitually followed. And really when you look at it. Probably the most effective one is bad guys trying to find a way to use current events as lures and i know that sounds really open ended and people think we'll how could that possibly help me and that's kind of the reason we wrote. This blog was to not only highlight what we're seeing but to help people understand what could be used in the future right so you know if we sit back right now and take a high level look over the next six months you know. We see a lot of social issues. The play we see an election coming up. We see the typical holiday shopping season. And then after that we started seeing tax season in the us. I would expect our campaigns target each and every one of those in order and potentially a couple of overlapping right. Yeah it's interesting to me that that One of the things you highlight here is that there are the ones that sort of run on the calendar. You know the tried and true every holiday season. We're going to have stuff every tax season. We're gonna have stuff but then In addition to that you know we've got things like covid. Nineteen we've got things like black lives matter these things that are top of mind and also emotional Hot points for a lot of people absolutely and you touched right on the thing that they're trying to exploit right. They want you to hear this topic. They want you to read this topic. See it in your emotion kicks in when people are thinking with emotion. They don't necessarily have the same thought that say an email would go through right And so by putting in these emotionally charged topics. They're trying to find someone who's going. Good impulsively click on it and potentially get exploited without really thinking through like hey with. Would steve really send me a link on this black friday sale for patio cushions. Right for zebra. Steve feels strongly about patio cushions. Right yeah you know but but anything like that anything that might be coming up. They will try and the reality is one percent work. So ninety nine percent of people are gonna cds and see right through them right they're gonna see the email with misspellings they're going to see. Oh it's a word doc. I know not to open that or it's a pdf. They're looking for that one percent that will so for every single one you see. Think about the people that you know in your life that are the least technical and then think about them at their worst possible moment right. Maybe they just saw a piece of news. That was incredibly inflammatory. Maybe they just had a relative or someone they care deeply about diagnosed with covid nineteen right. All of these scenarios are going to influence the way that they click and the speed that the click. And that's really unfortunately what the bad guys prey upon. Yeah you know it's also Interesting to me. How short circuits that. The the rational thinking part of a people's brains As you say and Tricks them into acting in a way that they probably wouldn't if they were in a better state of mind right and you know. Unfortunately we see this over and over again. There are regional specific versions. You know we see a lot of stuff in asia. That's very specific days. It's even been localized and the right languages. That would make sense to the people in the regions. It's got you know social context that are specific to the region. And so you know it's it's a business now. It's not someone trying to get lucky. It's not someone saying. I'm going to really nail that one person no there. They know they're getting one percent but the thing is to send out you know two hundred thousand. Emails has a cost that approaches zero. Yeah and again. You know as to contrast that against some of the other things that we've seen and i know you know you and your team track things like some of these ransomware campaigns. We've seen that have become highly targeted or you know some of these business. Email compromise campaigns that are really specific and who thereafter We still have these sort of You know spray and pray campaigns that are running these massive numbers games

And obviously you have a very special relationship with Cannabis specifically the cd side of things Can you give us give us some history. While i'm when was the first time you tried cannabis You know wha what's what's your history like there. Yeah that's a good one. My history pretty extensive. I started smoking cannabis when i was sixteen and and on probably while until now i smoke pretty consistently now But through my twenties it was off my late teens. it was off. I was in the army. So i didn't. I didn't smoke at all. Actually when i got out and smoke for a while. But then i moved to alaska. And i got in with bluegrass crowd and started doing joy relaxing music and art and creativity. And so i really started to smoke a little bit more than but it was mixed with alcohol and so it was always strange A lot of times it was strange for me then. So i quit then after moving to hawaii Oddly enough living in hawaii i didn't smoke at all was too expensive. It was too difficult to get and it just actually wasn't conducive to the to. The work i was doing i was i was diving. I was underwater a lot. And i honestly didn't feel like i needed to be high. I was so much going on in my environment So it was really nice but then you know fast forward to now and fifty one. I've had medical conditions now. Chronic medical conditions that only cannabis actually works for me and allows me to function. The pharmaceutical solutions arm suitable treatments. They create actually more confusion in issues than thc cannabis use see quite heavily us around three hundred milligrams a day. Cbd right around there. I use a lousy and it feels good and it works. Good for me. That's my history in a nutshell. Yeah that's awesome. I feel like. I have so many things to respond to. And of course the as i described to you at the beginning of this and then you know.

So i i you know you've you you're living in oregon. You lived in alaska. You lived in hawaii. These are these amazing places. And i love that you said that in in hawaii you didn't even really feel like you needed it I was lucky enough to be in hawaii for a short amount of time. It was like two weeks back in the early two thousands. But i mean i. I know exactly what you're saying it. It's this absolutely gorgeous place. And i mean i can't even imagine what it would what it was like to be diving there and and doing all that fun stuff and i think. Hawaii is pretty known for cannabis isn't it. Oh definitely definitely. But i was. On and kuwaiti is a notorious family island. It's it's oriented for families and as far as tourism goes Maui famous for cannabis and big island is more famous for cannabis and even a walking Quite has some but it's so small that it's really More treats for locals that are shared. And when i got there but after the first six months and i was there for five years. I didn't really smoke anymore at all. I didn't actually yeah. It was just so beautiful relaxing.
Stepping Out In Faith
"Salvation has been bought and paid for. Jesus did everything. But if you wanna have the promises of god then. There's going to be a few things that you're going to need to do. You're going to need to step out in faith here. We're gonna need to put your foot in the water. You're going to have to say goodbye to some stuff like we said. Last night he want here live tonight. You can buy the cd. Some of you have no idea what god would do for you. And the only way you're ever gonna know is to step out and find out what is that. What does that mean well. I mean there's a gazillion different examples. I don't know let's just say that you hate your job and they all you do is complain about it. You don't like it. You don't like the people you don't like to work and you've really got something else in your heart they'd love to do but you live in fear that if you give that up you might not have anything. Well god if you give me another job. why are you even tryin. I mean the story of my life is so much like so many other stories. Many of you have the same kinds of stories. I felt like god told me that. He wanted me to teach bible study. I didn't have any idea how to do that. I didn't know the bible. I didn't know how to do that. But i had a deep desire to help people. I want you to teach teach them teach a bible study. Well who's gonna come you know. Nobody knows nobody cares. And i remember saying. I don't know how to teach he said i do. I do and you know what i had to do. My first step was to say okay. My second step was to invite some people and oddly enough they all said yes see. I could have been so afraid of rejection. That i wouldn't even tried. I could have been so afraid of failure. That i wouldn't have even tried but i had to step into the water before the water would park. Now i guess worst case scenario if you step in it doesn't part you still step back but some of are just sitting around passively waiting for all these things to fall on you and i can tell you are not going to god told abraham you leave everything that you're familiar with and you go to a place i will show you. He had to step
Scientist Jean Deenmamode on CDT testing
"I expect is scientists zoll teen mom. Won't he's going to talk to us about the cdt test. When i was drinking the wine every i was vaguely where i was harming myself but because i never saw any proof of that i just have. Don't doing it now if my daughter had done a cdt tests on me and show me the results in black and white. I think that would have shocked me into making a change so this episode is all about explaining water. Cdt test is and how he can get one. I started our conversation by asking. You shown to tell me. But about himself and how he discovered the cdt test. Indeed well hello everybody at all your your listeners. Well i'm saw. I've been living in the uk for the boss forty three years now. It is based in london. And originally i was born in On the island of mauritius which is not too far from south africa answer. I'm matt familiar with a tropical southern hemisphere more so and in fact overrule was assessing this today at thirty two years diagnostic laboratory experience as both a clinical scientist and abide medical scientists. The latter requires more if you like getting once hints deji on the bench and doing the. We're kind of jokes. So i do enjoy that fall. Mole two thousand and eight. Somebody said to me to the test at school cdt. And i had no idea what city was what did did stateful at to me. It's something new that's coming out and we're commercialising it. It's to people who are at risk of chronic alcohol consumption and yet curiously. Why not and what. I was working there would be. People would come into the emergency department at night in the hospital and would have taken but nobody they would be smelling about. Also you could literally spend the or and you would think they'd be venturing or whatever so automatically. The doctors would have to ask for a request for a alcohol to be done. And this is a single time. Point measurement us through Might be and i saw. I render buys those samples. So i had no idea who they were and read these same samples anonymously on that cd on the liza and to my surprise i found out those who were testing negative for having consume alcohol when they were being admitted had this elevated cdt. And i couldn't understand why. And most of those who were drinking. And in fact where i imagine bhai now would be closed as chronic drinkers had both elevated auto an elevated cdt. So it became very mantra curiosity and between two thousand eight twenty ten. I did a lot of Of the swear in that manner. They went many samples private referral laboratories full on behalf of airline. Where taking it interest into this mollica. Because we're just the basic tests at started getting work from these companies. Also and i was invited to present some of my work in the netherlands in amsterdam in twenty twelve december so that was just after the olympics and unbeknownst to me there were representatives of the international federation of clinical chemistry present and this is known as the ifc see. This is the body that if you like it. It's full of international orla clinicians scientists and so on that all the blood test we have done in a laboratory. They approve that so that any tests that you have done that they approved so these people were there as representatives. Ocd the ifc members suggested that i joined the group which at the time they were trying to if you like rationalized how cdt was being done and make it a more recognized test. It was like sort of research. Talk to the time. So i did Issue like express my interest and by twenty fifteen. I ended up becoming a member of this working group and nothing lead. Did i just become a member. But in twenty eight thousand nine. They found myself being the chair of the ifc cdt working group which is an enormous platform personally for me and since then the icco's taken on bullet that a Full front to promote the test. Educate about the of cd
Stock market soars with divided election results
"So divided government is where we've ended up yet again and it's interesting that stock markets here in the united states and many overseas really really like divided government. And what's happened since the election results showed we're going to continue to have a split in who runs wet in washington that stocks have gone up a lot and for the immediate future will be profit taking days. That's where the directions likely to be. Now i want to explain to you why this is the way things are playing and what it means to you with your wallet. There are a lot of people before the election. Who were really worried. That cloudy election result would be devastating to their 401k's and is i've shared with you a couple of times plus in questions from people you can't react on a short term event like that because you don't know how it's going to play out and money in your 401k. Should be for money that you're using far off in the future particularly the younger you. Are you ignore. Current noise in an economy or in a society and that advice stays the same but the big reason that stock markets love divided government is. It means there's less likely to be much more government spending which leads to larger deficits and also leads to higher interest rates. As soon as it became clear that there was going to be a split result. What happened next was interest rates on the most directly impacted rate. That economists powell follow something known as the ten year treasury which is kind of like a ten year cd for rich people and big institutions the interest rates on those declined because once it became clear that we weren't going to have a giant stimulus law come into effect with divided government. It meant that the deficits get larger than anticipated and that the government wouldn't have to find more of a deficit with more borrowing that they would find with things like the ten year note and so the result is that it's easier for stocks to maintain value or grow when the things they compete against in the marketplace like what interest rates you can earn on savings accounts pitiful and going to get more pitiful What wealthy people can earn on things like treasuries or municipal bonds. They're all affected by a divided government result. So that's why the stock market Even with some of the uncertainty we've had seems stable now. The economy is going to get a small booster shot from a stimulus law. That now looks very very likely to be passed later in november or at the latest. I would say the first week of december. This is the kind of thing that i'm crazy to go out on a limb about. Because i don't control anything that the politicians do. It's just my reading of the tea. Leaves says that we will have a smaller rather than larger stimulus. There will be passed and it is a a thing that is just the where we are and i think tomorrow maybe i want to talk about what my prognosis is for the overall economy for the foreseeable future and then longer term. Because i think that the economy was the number three issue on people's minds when they voted and in many people's minds it is the number one issue. And i wanted to give you a sense about where i see going from here.
AMD is hitting it BIG with NAVI
"Week we're going to be talking about where I'm going to be talking about. I'm the only one here is cyberpunk 2077 Ubisoft hyperx MSI ever media's new webcam have got those new virtual webcam. Basically through an app will get into that home video course are as well or course, you know got those going to be the same thing. And then the biggest thing would be talking about is the big navvy announcement to actually happen this week and looks very interesting in the GPU market right now, but let's get on with the show. So first off we have that no man's sky is actually going to have next gen performance on everything off. Means PC Xbox series ex and the PS5 as well. So you're going to get that type of experience as which is based going to be 4K in time frames per second obviously in PC if you can unlock the frame rates, you can actually do it for more but right now graphics cards are getting there where it can actually do quite a bit of frame rates per second in 4k, but not quite yet. I think a few Generations will be able to see like the probability or at least Uncapped or way over a hundred frames per second in 4k in video games, but it's going to be a few generations for that one as well as technology gets better. The graphic Fidelity gets back plus with different types of features helping with that process. It just makes it for an all better experience in gaming in general. So look out for that and annulments guys. I actually do recommend. No man skies. I think it's actually really great right now. I think what they've done over the three or four years of since it's been out his make a really great game, even though when it came out it was not that good. But now it's actually really really good. So look out for it now moving on to Ubisoft and the rebranding of the digital distribution site plus their subscription is being rebranded as well. It's going to be we saw connect and it will be soft plus so they're basically getting rid of any type of creative title for just an ordinary title in general. Now the subscription service will be on stadia and Amazon's Luma which is basically their version of cloud gaming because cloud gaming is going to be the biggest thing moving forward right now. We have Xbox we have Amazon coming out soon. We have study we have In with the Geo Force now just to name a few it's going to be interesting. I think Google's going to lose this battle, but they sure are going to try to not lose this battle whatsoever. But they're just not really a gaming company don't really understand that much about it in general but it's interesting to see where it's going in the next five to ten years. Now speaking of free games. There's a few free games. You need to look out for first of all, the epic game store does have the Blair Witch Project Free or Blair Witch as it is the Blair Witch video game. It's free until November 5th 8 a.m. Plus Ghostbusters the video game remastered same time. It's going to be available until it's free, which is November 5th at 8 a.m. So go pick it up if you may well want some free games. Might as well just pick it up anyways, but speaking of free games. There's also the elite dangerous Horizon is free for all players. So if you have the dog, Game go pick it up for free. It's a nice addition where you can actually land on planets. Now. The new edition is coming out where you can get out of your spaceship and that should be interesting as well because it's actually I'm eventually going to be competing with Star Citizen and Star Citizen isn't even out yet, which is another interesting tidbit to know that star system is still in development and will be in development hell for a very long time until they feel it's right to release it whenever that actually is but should be interesting to see when they actually released it if they're going to release it or if they're just going to have them we're basically as it is right now the movie on to cyberpunk 2077. It seems like it's actually going to be released in 2077, which is a very long time for me to preorder a game. But anyways Jokes Aside has been delayed again until December. So Twenty One days later than the 3rd delayed release date even though it's gone gold. They're still trying to basically make it work on the consoles CD project project read said that it's ready for PC, but it's not ready for the consoles which is kind of funny to actually see because it's like well if it's ready for PC, then let the PC players play it I mean we don't care about consoles don't want to play this game on consoles. I want to play this game on PC because I prefer to play on PC in
INSANE CASE STUDY: Publishing For 365 Days Straight
"All right so She has been talking about publishing. For years. About the power of why we should be publishing daily and I remember at one of our Club X. Events. I made a statement I said. Everyone the audience that if you will publish single day for a year by end of the year I'm convinced you have you'll be financially free. And I think people looked at me and said, cool. Some people said, there's no way and very few people actually did it. They're having people have people sailing enough are having a lot of success right now. So I still stand by that like you pick to wear you to publish that and do it every single day. For Year, you should be successful because a couple of things can happen number one. It will give you a chance and give you time to find your voice and number two. It gives your audience enough time to come and find you right and so that's kind of the reason behind it. and. So what's cool is this morning Brandon Fisher whose one of the guys here my team it is all kind of our video. Steph he sent me this trailer and I haven't watched the documentary I watched the trailer this morning and it was amazing. So I if you go to we are Jim and Sam Dot com, you can go and watch the trailer for this documentary called after. So many days and so I don't know why sent to me. So I cook play and in this minute fifty trailer if this documentary, it tells a story about a couple who newlyweds in Jim in San who've been trying for decade to get to hit it with music right? They were playing show their practice seven for ten years had no success and they decided they needed to do. Something crazy. We need to figure out a way to pay the things successful, and so they decided that they were going to do a show every single day for three, hundred, sixty, five days. Right Andy and I haven't seen the documentary I am so excited to go and watch it. But. Just from the trailer. You see what happens is they go out there and they start doing a show and they some of the shows like next to these guys cutting down trees because only person there listened to him some of these little bars are. Just wherever they can find a place to perform show in front of humans right and they started doing this and they started doing this and by the end of the trailer, they're performing in front of these audiences of tens of thousands of people and There's this quota the in the trailer that was so powerful factor wrote down to one to share with you at the end the trailer he says. So here we go making something happen every single day, and then boom they start on this journey and it want to show you because man. you. So many of this dream we have our art right for the for Jim Sam. It's they're they're banned for for you could be an offer product, a coaching program, the book of course, a CD, a physical product service you do could be whatever right with is visually of our dream and we go out there and try to put out there. but the magic of this and I cannot wait to wash documentary having ten more episodes getting out about this but the concept of our free be successful it's not just going out there and dabbling or there I'm going to read a book I'm GonNa go try to whatever it's like here we go making something happen every single day. What are you doing every single day to make your dream come true right like what is it right for most of us if we're satisfied publishing I duNno Nathan Berry who is the founder kid? Really good solid off a program He said the same thing is like I'm gonNA write a blog post every single day for a year a sat down and he started doing it and I was really hard right but then got in the habit of this like every damn. Sit down. I'M GONNA reading thousand words red thousand every minute early morning. Yeah. Thousand words, thousand words, and by the time a year cup up his company had blown up. Things happen from it, and so I think for all of us men they just they just serve such a good reminder. How do we publish something every single day? Right and so this is the rallying call K. as you hazard going to commit to this and say, okay, I'm GonNa do this. Calls. So here we go. Making something happened every single day. So what does that for you? What is that lever with the thing you do every single day it's GonNa. Change everything for you. You've got to figure out exactly what that is and then focus on and do it consistently every single day for you. If you do that a couple things happen number one, you will find your voice gay I, guarantee them for formula show every single day for your what happened they got better they will like if people didn't like they like they, they mastered their craft right. The second thing is that as they're going out there and doing this over and over and over again, the consistency gave their audience a chance to find them. I talked about and traffic secrets because we'll. I shared another one of Nathan varies. Thousand. Blog posts are hundred bog whatever hundred, sixty, five blog posts. He did that year. When was called you have to endure long enough to get noticed talked about they said you know it's interesting because you think about. TV shows or movies or documentaries like like how many TV shows did you find out about like season four or five rice at the the problems are so much content being created all the time that That the market the waits to to see what's good enough is going to rise to the top right and so it's it's testing. You I think for all of US I. Okay. The Universe God the market you know whoever testing you see. Do you really want this? How bad you want how bad you care about your message to hear anything to be a blog once a week about it and you care if you're gonNA blind date about it do you care about the every single day? You're GonNa make something happen because if you do if you are. Then you get rewarded tethers reason now that I'm having still having so much success in my business, right? Despite the ups and the downs in the all the things I have been doing this. Now for eighteen years, eighteen years I've been beating this drum over and over and over I beat this drum when nobody was listening I beat this drum when people were angry at Stroman when clients relieving beat this drama kept doing it and doing it and doing it because I believed it so much because I cared about semester I knew the impact he could and would have if I just kept doing it kept doing it kept doing it and now eighteen years later. I'm still learning. So becoming better I'm still I still make tons of stupid mistakes. Right? Eighteen years letter later I found my voice right and my audience is finding me and it will continue to hopefully continue to grow and keep evolving. But that's definitely what's what's happening. So
Cyberpunk 2077 Delayed Until December
"Go, Breaking News Sarah Pump Twenty seventy seven has been delayed a little less than a month. They. tweeted this out just now. Hey everyone. Today, we've decided to release to release the cyberpunk seven by twenty one days the state December tenth. Most likely there are many emotions and question your heads. So first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies the biggest challenge for us right now, shipping of the game on current Gen Nexgen PC at the same time requires US prepare and test nine versions of it xbox one x compatibility series S X. ps four pro compatibility on ps five pc stadia working from home. Since Era Punk has twenty seventy seven has evolved towards almost being a next gen title somewhere along way, we need to make sure everything works well and every virgin run smoothly where we're aware it might be unrealistic. When someone says it twenty one days can make a difference sister massive and complex game, but they really do so have you might also be wanted what these words mean us say we achieve our goal Massar. Sometime ago paddock certification are going Goldman to gave his ready can be completed and has all the content in it. It doesn't mean we stop working on a raise. The quality are in raising the quality bar on the contrary. This is the time where many improvements are being made, which will then be distributed via day zero patch. This is the time period we under calculated. We feel that we have amazing game our hands and are willing to make every decision even the hardest ones for automatically. Leads to you getting a video game, you'll fall in love with some Adam Barsky and markets Wenski CD, project read. So yeah. Twenty one days. What do you think Fran bombed? This doesn't surprise me in the least and like I mean honestly I really don't think it's a big deal. I know a ton of people are growing as I say that like what like this is like how many delays like how it's like for some people? This is probably feeling unacceptable because they're so excited about the next Gen consoles it came right at a time. You can pick those up orgies period. You're kind of like we've been waiting for a really big game dropped for a while a lot of people right and so people were stoked but. This company is famous for being perfectionist you know, and that's what I hear when I read this, they're staring down the barrel of the new Gen consoles in particular, and probably which we always I feel like there's gay games, the optimizations, and this has been such labor of love and they're just like. Guys we have to smooth out some frame rate. We've gotta get these next Gen consoles closer to being more than just like a frame rate improvement versus because that's what you're dealing with to. Right. It's a PS four, xbox one version kinda slightly amped up and it sounds to me like they want to try a few more things. I think that's great. Especially, if you plan to play in those consoles, these twenty one days are going to make a huge difference view versus were going to talk about it later got a war as is going to work on PS five. Do you want cyberpunk like that where it's ps four game that works? A little better or do you want optimization? Yeah, I well, how do you feel? Personally I. It doesn't superman like we're we're both used to playing games or incomplete like that's just the reality of it so. I don't think this matter so much to me I am relieved that like Oh thank God that November like. Push because that is literally there's like. Five Games that we are we are going to talk about that we add. Is What he did. Selfish on that front there is I mean I'm going to be a half to I'm going to be playing destiny on November tenth. Somebody. Tim was asking me about cyberpunk and all that and I was like. Dude I'M GONNA. Check out but. What am I supposed to do? It would be like grinding for a rate so selfishly and like, yeah, let's go. Give me give me a month to catch up on a lot of stuff.
Halloween: Boston Children's doctor urges caution in COVID-19 pandemic
"Will have an effect on Halloween celebrations this week. Dr John Braunstein of Boston's Children Hospital is among medical professionals urging all of us to limit celebrations to members of our own household or trying to reduce the numbers of interactions were trying to keep social distancing trying. Keep Massport if you can achieve all those things as so get some candy, your problem. CDs. He recommending people avoid indoor parties, haunted houses and hayrides.
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

The Answer is The 5 Minute Pickup
"So in I've been working on a project. Oh, I WANNA make sure to go ahead and tell you guys that we're having plumbing work done. I think I've mentioned it. It's really expensive. Crazy expensive. and. They are doing something and I'm I'm trying to not think about what they're doing, but it involves some major digging and it's basically a pipe that is messed up under our house. We have a slab and we're in Texas and all that kind of stuff. So. which means that the Way The slab works is different. I don't know I. Don't know our ground. We can't have basements here. Does that make? Does it help at all in the understanding but like nobody has a basement I live 'cause they can't do basement in our kind of grown I. Think it's like rock or something I don't know. Any way they are doing things into basically for the last week and a half they've been digging and most the time. It's not that big of a deal and then every once in a while it's like this. Sound and so in case you hear any of that. It's not my stomach. It's the digging and thanks for listening to the podcast and supporting our sponsors so that we can pay for this plumbing. Whatever anyway. Here we go. We are talking about various questions. So I had asked the people in the Patriot on facebook group if you'd like to know more about being a patron of the show at the five dollar level you get to. Become a part of the super secret facebook group. But if you'd like to find out more about that, go to Patriotdepot dot com slash asleep comes clean. That's P. T. R. E. O. N. DOT COM slash quince clean and I always put that in the show notes as well a link to that but 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

"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..

"You put the blink CDN or debut CD ROM in, and it would show up as a disc on your desktop, and you just drag stuff to to copy over to. That was read only or. You couldn't arrays from the. It was right once writing right reasoning worm. So yeah, that was the thing is basically once you talked to the CD there forever flowing amber what we wanted. That's what we used it for. So thank you done in for creating something that became, I think, probably much larger than than ever envisioned that it could become. It was a game changer for the way we process our information got our content. I just games, interactive stuff, phone directories. Remember the phone directories on CD-rom was awesome. So I kept mine for many, many years before I finally taught the postcode database east coast Rama. I'm here in the UK you'd subscribe to it and then every three weeks they send you a new CD-ROM with the update and you'd load that until system and that like used to do address such by postcode nowadays, we do that on the internet, but back then you would. Subscribe to a service to get that, and you had to be a business to be able to register for that because you know it was just slot these security information, amazing technology. 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. Here's some of the big titles that I found online. You remember Cinna mania, nineteen Ninety-four..
