Yeah whereabouts he was supposed to mean that we could do in browsers and right just right but everyone repping in as well. So that seems seems a bit of a shame yeah gelinas one janice ion sf you of course rtc all the open source solutions and unfortunately closed source solutions like zoom and skype. Have really better they work. I mean the reasons in took over originally with because they actually bought to do the bridge and defend thing right so he was easier for them to adopt in in that market. But i think. I think they're running on web. Rtc are they. I think. I think at least the browser version on the browser version is butt. Heads are using the browser version or the desktop minute.

"Usage limit and what does the feature limit So try to have maybe both catches different kinds of behavior and also prevent certain types. I'm sorry excuse to me. Like i could be in a really really important meeting using four or five apps and they've all set a different expiry amount so you know one of them gives me five minutes at unlike during a cat and it's like an ai powered cat drawing tool and so suddenly. I'm drawing like ears and sort of fills it in for me and then like the timeout stops and it's like putting orders to keep it going while the audio enhancing tool is like meowing roaring. Because it's not sure if it's a lion or anyways listening to that and thinking it's a really good idea but i think so. All the apps have usage pre nothing like time limited right and then they have an option as subscribe to buy. Or there's something. I've had those millions where my zoom call back when i was a cheapskate and i didn't pay presume becoming thirty nine minute mark and i get the warning like. Oh your calls about two. I felt like. I mean not like jail prison but like my call is about to expire like. Do you want to accept a collect. Call charges kind of thing and it was a really great motivator to convert because this is embarrassing. Like forty minutes. Who was a forty minute meeting. But so i guess like your heart right so in the end if you're gonna do a platform venture you're you have to be able to. It's going to be judged in the end about. Are we helping you know how can other companies partners make money and isn't going to make money presume right. It's not just. Let's go freely. Billions human happens right so the beginning of that part of the adventure. I mean. that's fair. I mean we also don't know. And i. I guess i don't know i'm probably one of the people who would install forty different apps. And maybe that'll like everyone else's experience. I don't really know. But i think it's gonna be fun. I think this is a really really great moment. And it's super interesting to think about social video as a kind of operating system for these new experiences and apps and taking for granted that everyone going to have a video connection and then video becomes a native medium through which all sorts of experiences are delivered. I think it took me a while to sort of understand that video is this. I don't know it's a conduit for delivering meaning. And you can embellish both the meeting in the channel itself in other words like the content of the video or you can layer on widgets and components or you can put them side by side etcetera and no web. Rtc might be one of the ebeling technologies that kind of unblocked thought for me but you guys clearly have now built on that and even building on it for quite a while and it's super exciting to see it come to mark. You finally have the ability to make people first class featuring rod rape. I mean also up to plug on or mention another thing and kinda relates. Stout conversation started. We didn't sorta one hundred million dollars. Zoom apps fund On seed Series as age. I am so anyway. That's part of again. Part of the overall economic model of it and what are the requirements for participating in that. Like you know if i'm building video apps..

"You'd see on a website so like foams images buttons that kind of thing links. Okay so is this. Where if i am in a either a vr a our environment. This is where you can actually have like buttons. That are -able within that space. Yeah exactly so in addition to making your three d. environment which the grab stuff and pool stuff and have three models. You can also have part of a web page in the environment. That may sound quite boring is just gonna be like a to d rectangle was content in it. This lets you use the hasty monte assess. Api is already available in browsers to build to the interfaces in vr and ar so for example if you had a hateem foam re implementing the whole thing out of rectangles and shape in a three d. modeling applications kind of pain but just being able to write some hate mail and take advantage of all the really powerful to delay it. Bootees of the web is just fantastic feature will let developers make the most out of both three d and today. nice nice. Yeah so what are some other technologies that go well with. Webex are so first one that comes to mind like web. Rtc so this is lets you do video sharing audio sharing over the web in web. Rtc stands for real time communication correct. It does yes so this left few for example. If men's kind of some social situation. I could do some kind of cool between me and another person so i can chat with them in an efficient manner. That's peer to peer without admitting to go to a central service okay Another thing that's pretty useful for social fiat stuff is web sockets so web sockets let you do incredibly high bandwidth very very fast data connections between your client in salva so you could have many people in a single room with having that positions rotations shad over web sockets so you can see people moving around and walking around in real time and so using this web..
Tracking the Trends: AI, WebRTC, Crypto, and Full Stack Startups
"Today's episode is a conversation about four big trends in the tech world. Any one of these trends would be notable on its own, but we cover all four in this hallway style chat as a sixteen z general partner Chris and talks with Sept. Campfire professor of media, arts, and sciences at MIT, and now co founder of cryptocurrency platforms, Selo and Eli Gill an investor in the CO founder of Health Technology, company color genomics, and formerly at twitter and Google. This is a wide ranging survey of some of the major shifts in technology right now but it's really a Meta story of how innovation happens, which is most definitely not in a straight line. So here, the translate cover Crypto, of course, a and machine learning including GP three. You can also listen to our explainer episode on what type and what's real there on our show sixteen minutes full stack startups, which Chris I wrote about in two thousand, Fourteen and collaborative web collaborative enterprise social including RTC or real time communication within the browser, which is where the conversation begins the first voice. You'll hear his Chris followed by talking about Web RTC and then set wants the conversation turns to Crypto. So it's a lot I. You and I have been talking about this in a negative excited about it. This kind of this feeling that there's a new stack of web infrastructure things like video audio. Collaborative Video Nadia rather who's having infrastructure now that it works in a way that it hadn't in the past and that's a mocking a whole new way of interesting applications people are always looking for the next platform and what the next big platform shift is and I think I kind of May have snuck up on all of us in the form of Web RTC Web Gio and then related. API. Companies providing sound or other things that have been built on top of by. Many other companies and I think the shifted substantiate itself in two different ways and almost call it the collaborative web and then separately the collaborative enterprise and if you look back ten years, people kept talking about during the first social way everybody talking about how there's going to be a social enterprise and how every SASS product was going to be more social and collaborative in that largely failed and it feels like that shift is finally happening in part due to things like what? You see fig for example, is the first really strong example of a Web jail enabled application along you to collaborate in real time with other people. In parallel with RTC is really allowing for really interesting concurrent sessions around video and tell you starting to see that in terms of a lot of products being built around virtual office rooms, virtual conference rooms, and I really do think this is the moment where collaboration is finally being built into the enterprise world and enterprise products, and then in parallel Web Jalen. Web RTC really seem to be enabling really interesting social experiments right now in terms of new social products, you have really amazing video and audio quality. So the time lag has gone who can do things that clubhouse. There's lots of interesting video experimentation. So you can see almost like degraded forms of your other things happening in browser or so I think now is a really exciting time of innovation around this new webstock. Point sneaking up on us, we've obviously had the ability to have conference calls group audio for decades. Right. But like a club house fact that there's so low latency and you've got like the visual representation of the room means that to me it's like if you remember the old days in the conference calls, Hey, always have people talking over each other partly because of whatever thrown is remarkable how the conversation switches from person to person. The latency I mean we both houses. This was zoom right like the fact that he doesn't stutter. The fact that very rarely does. It somehow Kinda Crossover. This point of good enough where finally hitting the point our in terms of video quality and the ability to stream concurrently across multiple users in terms of audio quality were hitting that point where the web infrastructure is really supporting the ability to have extra latency. A new platform excited at the examples. But when you say platform you that means you did they'll be thousands of examples. Are you think it's GonNa? Be a whole new wave that goes? By ten years. I think like any a quote unquote platform they're going to be a handful of things that really matter. That will really be the important things on it, and then a lot of things will be experiments that fail or don't work and I don't know ten years from now, what's going to be the main setup applications? I just think it is a shift that enables a bunch of applications to be built particularly the social or collaborative enterprise. One example that I think is worth noting in terms of what's coming due to see is it's quite possible that if you. Look at virtual reality or Vr the predominant use case in the near term mackey shift to the Rouser, and so I think right now in order to experience the are you need a headset you need some cases client software etcetera in. So there's more obstacles in hurdles to be able to participate and I think one of the things I found really interesting about where to seeing what jail is the ability to suddenly create like experiences where you just drop it. Can show up and so the big question in my mind is is oculus almost like the desktop computer versus mobile devices where the desktop really helps you do powerful tests, but you can do a lot on your phone and it's sort of the mainstream use case for most of the Internet today so I think that's another thing that we'll see if it happens or doesn't happen over the next decade, but that may be one interesting long-term trend to watch relative to web RTC. In. Jail. crypto rolling all involved in this allowed, you invest in Crypto Zapped new coupons company Selo in Crypto Abbasi's been my time besting. tells. A little about why you're excited about it in the second ring on. So I'll start off with general principle that I think is true for all of the technologies that we're talking about. There are certain class of technologies that increase the expressive range of a certain medium and when you increase the expressive range of a medium. Things pop up that were not possible before because you now are playing in the new design space. The historical example that I always love to point to is in the eighteen hundreds. The invention of the metal feral in painting is the little piece between the paintbrush and the paintbrush handle and collapsible easel. Those two things together allowed people to a brave paintings outside and be start to paint with a new breastroke that them too quickly DAB, paint onto the canvas in those two. Ended up, giving rise to form of painting that we now know as impressionism, and still it's interesting to think about impressionism was a result of technological advances painting and you see that same thing with the web and the Internet in general there were technological advances in the medium of text and so all of a sudden people could send texts more quickly anybody could be a broadcaster you start putting texts together with code to create different things in that vastly increased the expressive range of texts in a way that led to all of these things that you could not predict in advance. So for example, in ninety, four, ninety, five, when the web was starting to become popular, one could not imagine that. Will one day I'll be able to press the button and order my groceries on this and have my groceries come to me. You know and so I think those are really interesting from A. Technological point of view. Why I'm excited about Crypto is that Crypto does this for money? It increases the expressive range of the technology that we know is money, and that I think we'll follow very similar to the Internet you know at the beginning of the Internet. You saw allow people to pass messages. More quickly to one another across the distance in a way that was just qualitatively different than facts, and that is the first thing that you started seeing with Crypto it has direct implications to things like remittances or making the UNE banked. But then on top of that, the second implication of the web was that anybody could become a broadcaster with youtube anybody could have their own TV station and in the context of Crypto, you have the same democratization in financial services. So you see this kind of rise in decentralized finance open finance. And third is most exciting as it allows money to become programmable in the same way that the Internet allow text to become programmable and that I think, I mean we're seeing some early things today but that's I think the aspect that we're still the earliest and it has the most legs and is the most powerful and the most difficult to predict the stage. Since we're in such an early phase

"I'm Jason. Howell. And I'm Ron Richards. And I'm a very flustered, Florence I on today's. Days in it. Street. They're not only in the android world, but just like in life. It has been a three time and honestly I do feel like after a couple of weeks of like slow Android News, all of a sudden, the past two days like I could not keep the plates spinning. I, was like Whoa and this and this. and. It's not because tomorrow. Me and James Nafta to get up early. Wait this way me and Jason have to get up early. It's going to be regular time for you. There's a Samsung, event. Yeah. It's GonNa be nuts like seven am and mind you like as I've said, many times at this point, he probably sick appearing me say my podcast studio station is in our bedroom. So it's basically like kicking failure, the roof before had so that I can make sure that I'm up at ready for seven. Am Call to follow Samsung News which there's going to be a lot. So I'm definitely looking forward to, but what a week from Samsung to Pixel, which we'll talk about later. This is a big. I mean. We've got so much phone news happening right now. It's kind of ridiculous. I mean, it's really weird after what has been a quiet summer like it is just like it went from zero to sixty late yesterday after job total. Good. which is Kinda normal riot. Usually, it seems like about the time of the the note event is win this next phase of the phone season kicks in, and then at this point, we don't hear from Google until like Tober, but this time that's different. Anyway, we're. We're spoiling the the the ending here or at least the middle. Before, we get there. We've got some news to talk about taking us to the news. please. We have a week purchased doesn't even violence? Say it. I don't blame them at all. I, don't blame me at all burke. Let's get into the news like we said it's been head-spinning these past couple of days. We'll get to the pixel stuff in the hardware blocks of stay tuned. We haven't forgotten about that but I off. One of the hotly anticipated things all summer in the world of android. In fact, a couple of weeks ago. When Dave Burke from android. From Google and Android was on the show, he teased that nearby share file sharing aspect of android would be rolling out soon, and soon is today how about that? So, basically, if you're familiar with IOS airdrop this airdrop for android. It's file share between ANDROID devices. You can share files, images, links, etc. Through fast transfer process. You can select your visibility determine who can see you and share with WHO and who can't It does work off line, which is fascinating. Transfers by either Bluetooth, Bluetooth L. E. Web RTC, or peer to peer Wifi, whichever is fast as and you can check out hands on android episode twenty, one for deep dive into the new feature, which I'm sure we'll get you as Jason goes deep into file sharing with nearby sharing. Jason. What is your experience in nearby sharing? Is it? What is it living up to the hype? I. Think, Yeah. I think in in my experience with it and try and I should I should stay that really I've only used it around the time when I was creating the hands on android episode. So I haven't found myself in a situation since then or like I needed to use nearby sharing to send a file to myself and I certainly haven't found myself in a situation where I'm sharing directly like with my wife like quite frankly we're not going anywhere. So we're just here. Why, don't you just send her files Willy Nilly because think about it. That can be fun. We have nothing going on right now, and you know your everyone's stuck at home and you know. Why not send her random files, sent her gifts in memes through the nearby share and. Response like I. think that's a good idea. I'll ask her to set it up because it would be weird if I just set it up and started dropping are things that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. It up and it'll be it'll be a nice way to kind of lighten the load on weeks such as this one but. was going to say about nearby sharing is in my time playing with it. For that episode hands on Android I tested transferring a good amount of files, large files, small files, and yet it works pretty seamlessly. Just kind have to do the work in advance of setting it up to say, Hey, I, trust this person's device, and then if you happen to have your device near near an that person's device at any given point, you can get a little notification. Notification. That says, Hey. So and so's nearby and it makes it really easy for you just tap and share directly to them because you've all you both already kind of open those gates to say, yes, this is possible.

ASUS reveals DUAL RTX 2070 MINI graphics card at CES 2020
"Cs Twenty twenty-eight announced the G force RTC Twenty-seven mini which is someone someone who loves little tiny cases little tiny high-powered. GPU's or having more of them is always a plus Anything particularly standing out about this one one for you not really. I mean it's it's targeting that new not concepts the knock nine appro and extreme and that's kind kind of power marketed. All of their imagery for this show it like right there. In or next to the NOOK. So it's but the nice thing about it is it has those really compact unpacked dimensions that we expect from those smaller cards to fit in little enclosures. And it's we. I don't think we're talking too much about the duck nine here but that it's funny to me to see case concept actually a computer concept that has so much in common with existing products we've seen in the enthusiasts space. This looks a lot like the Dan cases enclosure at least with the way it's laid out internally where you have a small form factor power supply and and then you sort of sandwich the GPU and the motherboard up against each other to make it as small as physically possible and what Intel is of course doing with this new platform is. They're making a sort of a system on a card which which exit on one side and then your dual slot jeep coupons on the other side with the PSU down below. So I expect to see more cards like this targeting that this ACIS card is you know it's an interesting attempt at this and I think that what's great about it is for enthusiasts. It's a really nice looking compact dual fan card. So even if you don't WanNa get into that new Intel nook ecosystem. You can also get yourself a very nice looking compact GPA for other enthusiast style cases. And I'm sure we'll see versions like cases that that will be inspired by this new nook for diy like maniacs diy

"Future thing RTC your RTC the RTC Washoe county and welcome back to eye on Washington are look at one use this nation's dependence on foreign sources of critical minerals and my guest today is that congressman he is the leading mark on the day there are twenty three minerals considered crucial to this nation's ability to sustain its national defense and economy more than twenty of them can be found right there in the great state of Nevada critical minerals are used in manufacturing everything from batteries in computer chips to military and medical equipment gold so much of which comes from Nevada is even in your carpet fiber you could not get by in this life without critical minerals they are absolutely essential for economic growth not to mention our national security and so it's not good news to any American that this nation is becoming more not less dependent on foreign sources the United States has vast mineral resources but is becoming more and more dependent on foreign sources twenty five years ago the US was dependent on foreign sources for forty five non fuel mineral materials eight of these important matter of materials for field one hundred percent of US requirements for them by twenty fifteen at twenty forty five had grown to forty seven we're relying on there there's to provide and nineteen of those imports without a hundred percent of the requires for these minerals so mineral material so congressman again we're getting more dependent on foreign sources not less well in in in the issue here merrily as this it's become easier to go get a permit and to operate in countries that don't have our labor laws don't have our environmental laws don't have our safety laws all those things so it's kind of ironic that some people say we must pay heed to the environment we must be safe with our workers we must do all those things are then saying so we're gonna go a hundred percent of people who quite frankly don't care about any of that stuff the hypocrisy is unreported and manifest and strategically now and you've shared on it and on this show many times your concern about our mining companies moving offices overseas or moving down south it's what will and the reality is is is quite frankly nobody gets to be a hero by degrading the environment so that whole stereo type of it it's bad by virtue of the fact that it exists the north the whole track record of these folks in restoring habitats many of not regulating they see things and and stuff like that as well as paying some of the highest average wages in the nation of any industry those people who have those jobs in Nevada or somewhere north of eighty some odd thousand dollars a year in our rulers predominately which quite frankly is a very important piece of the puzzle for environmentally responsible folks working into that as world it's a win win I mention the importance of minerals in our military and national security but just to kind of focusing from moment on it to affect on our economy dead one again example of many you if you were on a recently with Lee gifts and we are talking about transportation we complain about Nevada's and and the nation's crumbling infrastructure you need minerals for that it's just again one of countless examples well in one of the things that some pretty she says my god sand and gravel could be a critical mineral on this this is like well depending on the circumstances if you have the Loma Prieta earthquake in the East Bay the collapse those sections of freeway you need to rebuild that infrastructure lickety split to get that emergency capacity back guess what it might be critical and so but but it's like within the bill doesn't require that they get a at a permit if they're supposed to be told no they will but there's a time frame for them by went by the way the process is still entirely transparent so nobody's going to slip in a critical mineral permitting thing under something that is in critical actor you know again we have too many good examples to share but you were talking about the environment you know everyone's talking about clean energy according to the department of energy the US imports more than fifty percent of the forty one minerals key to clean energy application is it's another irony receipt or go to my missing something please connected what what what I think some of it is I won't speak for everybody but but the speculation is is just a jihad against the minerals industry and so I guess what they don't make money by degrading the environment these days so some of the old legacy stories are fine I mean Virginia city they're still all sorts of mercury the Carson river how do you clean it up in modern times you solve those problems with the people that are operating now quite frankly are some of the most responsible towards the environment of any industry on the face of the earth and especially when you look at making yourself vulnerable to the folks that they're your adversary and again to drive home the economic head of all this the US share of worldwide mineral production dollars with seven percent in twenty fifteen down from nineteen percent in the early nineties if you think that's okay I simply disagree with you and again at in days Rosa it's a dog chasing its tail right minerals are needed for economic growth to occur but also those exploration dollars are dollars we have now if it wasn't going on elsewhere right well in the irony is is because of the ones that have been spent you know that resources it is in your neighborhood we just choosing not to go get I when we return the congressman's years long effort to develop.

"Think RTC you're RTC the RTC of Washington county and welcome back to I on Washington are look at what one committee assignments. And why he says serving on them helps them achievement goals beneficial to you in Nevada. He is my guest today. Of course, the US Carson Stephen horsera-, well, a week after congressman Horford was appointed to the House Ways and means committee that panel instead that he would be on one of just five committee members. To also serve on the house budget committee. The budget committee is the chief legislative panel conducting oversight of the federal budget process. It's chief responsibilities to draft an annual congressional budget resolution, which directs congress on how the federal government invest tax dollars. That's resolutions. That's the aggregate levels of revenue and spending that is expected to occur in a given fiscal year of budget Reveiz resolution bylaw must be an active by congress by April fifteenth, but this target date as many of you know, is rarely met congressman without getting too deep in the weeds. Can you help my audience understand what is it concurrent budget resolution? What's he continuing budget resolution? They hear these terms back home. But it's it gets confused. Well, continuing resolutions are bad because that's the short term stopgap funding that has resulted in us having these government shutdowns whenever there hasn't been agreement. Like, we just. Saw with the thirty five day government shutdown which ended up costing nine billion dollars in lost economic activity directly impacting Nevada over fifty two thousand atoms who were faced with not having their paycheck on on time the budget committee and the process that we're moving towards is regular order where we will have a budget resolution that won't guarantee predictability at the federal budgeting process. What is your focus as far as helping to draft that annual congressional budget resolution both in a timely any fiscally responsible manner. Well, we have a lot of challenges facing the federal budget. And what we've started to do is expose the challenges with this GOP tax Bill that was passed which is creating additional deficit one point five trillion dollars of additional deficit at the federal level. We have to balance that based on the priorities, but what we cannot do is balanced. The budget on the backs of working people seniors veterans or the porch upon learning you'd be on both ways and means in the budget committee. You said serving their on would help you deliver on some campaign promises, particularly you said lowering prescription drug in general healthcare costs and you said quote and leveling the playing field for middle class families. What did you mean by that latter promise? So for example, in the GOP tax plan that was passed the tax breaks for billionaires and big corporations as permanent while the tax cut for. Entrepreneurs and small business is temporary and it sunsets. In twenty twenty twenty twenty-five, which means there's no predictability for the small business owner in Nevada. There's no predictability for the person who wants to start and grow their own small business. So why are we giving big tax breaks to billionaires and big corporations and not leveling the playing field for entrepreneurs who want to start and grow their business on top of that many of the individuals ended up getting one time bonuses or reductions in their taxes for one time, whereas the tax breaks for wealthy. Individuals is in perpetuity quickly. What are you planning to do to help bring about those lower drug costs that you've spoken about you know, out of pocket prescription bills that is one of the biggest gripes among Nevada's? It's huge. And what we're doing is. We are going to force these pharmaceutical companies. To be transparent about their prices at how they go about setting the prices we want to allow Medicare to be able to negotiate directly for lower cost. And we want to bring the pharmaceutical companies to the table to force them to negotiate on behalf of the American public. Okay. And as we in the segment, I do need to say on the beer things.
