Kotlin Multiplatform with John OReilly
"Regarding a desktop and service. what did you start in. Like what technologies were using so simpson so as deputy so. I wanna finish college in one thousand. Nine hundred started with sort fulltime masters speech recognition. You're using your wall things back then. That was sort of. You can do that about sums watching the cotton. Dl talk yesterday. Where a couple of lines of code can do that. But this writing everything from scratch in c in terms of audio processing fifties and and i've been never confronted themselves and there was there was a need for something. Kinda graphical and i don development for awhile and answer. Windows three came out. I think you're on june nineteen ninety and i So cool your concern dusen. Windows graphical is from speech patterns. And mike you're next so forth down again more chance occurrences a low company was starting to do windows and said hey you know obviously not too many people doing that stage said hey. Join to join to join us so i saw that again. That's what started the decade of doing windows see transitioning cpas plus windows. St kfc com hiram. It's funny because obviously was been toying with a proposed for desktop right now sort of i don't know what you call it control back. Go throwbacks ecstasy. That's what's what's old is new again. So when when did you. When did you actually start with With developing kotlin than so. I'm trying to was the announcement. Okay oh in about five years ago now. Is it a country member. anyway there was a natural icon. I you know to be honest. I hadn't i know a lot of people being aware columnist stage. And we're very excited about it. I i was a little bit in the dark. It wasn't something new to me. I haven't even wear and to another coin spos- as in most companies. We probably weren't in a position to start using cotton straight away. You know And i have had. And i have an obligation to restore cocoa puffs. It's actually it's an aug project hasn't up hope people's find somewhat useful. That actually does but for me. Personally i use it i e kind of overloaded somewhat in terms of as a pop from try technology so when the under doctors coronas came up first of all Used to try goes out. And then went. Kalkin emerged start reggie microsoft katainen and similarly montecot from down the road and And then you know as is frequently. The case trying that out. There then became a platform. Say okay now in the workplace okay. This looks interesting. Let's start to use his here and then shortly after that. Then maybe down. The road asked announced. Maybe we start to use it working and we start to use a gradually in africa project and we ended up doing a for various reasons. We did a company rewrite of our project and we started from the ground up dan with cartoon or katelyn underdog extra bonus cortines and so forth. So so is this your first multiplatform project or not so does sage. i wasn't using work. Under gorbachev sort of had supposed to give you know a little bit more brought on their. You know like this. Be working on mobile for eleven years now and i guess over time like many of us you know we would have source accession cross platform. I guess there's always sort of cross pot from monty python but cross platforms kind of sounders. Right once so reproaches. The dab senator in reactnative approaches. And you know over the course of various projects in the previous companies in new product. Monday or somebody coming in that. Have read some headline. This allows you to do everything in one place all your code face. We don't need to have all these separate irish and each time you took sort of had to move. That weren't approved was an us. Disapprove that dickey. We're gonna do competitions. And we had to prove that this wasn't suitable for the type about. We were developing this platform. it's christians. We needed an end user experience. We need But i'm saying that is supposed as a segue to you know I guess what come interesting monte platform. Because when i when cosimo mantra was aware of it i think we're not to those nineteen towards the end of that. It's sort of immediately struck me as okay. This is a pragmatic saint approach finally to the sharing of code across multiple platforms mobile. I've been involved by the way sort of number of initiatives over the years for free. Willion superstars shared code into office. Which is at least somewhat more sane approach but. I don't know if you guys have worked with john. I had to work jay. You know unfortunately goldstone feel like. That's one of those topics that if you can you usually avoid it. I guess yeah if you can avoid using it as well as we various we had to use it in their practical use. And it's one thing using stateless knight ridder touch it can function as in which you maybe media engine i. I just wanted to say on the topic of jane. I think this is. This is going to become a bit more interesting again now. Also with With all the topics around compulsive for desktop because of a bunch of lake system integrations. I dunno things like global hot keys or stuff the. jvm just doesn't really expose. so i think some some of the people at the forefront. They're wanting to write libraries. Yeah they might might have to go that route anyway. Yeah you know if if you're using it. I robot michael state library that district district functions wanting using your compete shared logic with the framework with the training involved with life cycle aspects. Dot is a different story completely debugging crush reports of So haven't gone through. That in us was having seen the sort of attempts sort of pulling in pushing us towards cross. Platform frameworks cottam. Okafor's was immediately. You know the caught cartoon. The cartoon obviously was an advantage a positive from my perspective but more generally i think it was a sane approach it was targeting shared logic target. Had kind of a mechanism in place where you could sort of. This is critical. You could incrementally adopted you know you start putting in for some small area. And i think that generally by today's still is that you start doing that in you take some particular business. Logic may be may be remote. Api endpoint access or so forth and then graduated up from there. And you know there's another kind of a discussion point around how you socialize that how you get in particular iowa's developers interested in an accepting of the but it's the topic himself but certainly certainly from that perspective. At least i think it's very important. Start small and and as the key thing about the type forums. It appealed point was that it had that capability that it it was lended itself to that sort of adoption. Yes so so just to kind of to recap your point. You feel that the that the main difference between cartland multi platform and these other cross platform. Toolkits is is what exactly that you can adopt them. Incrementally that you that you stay away from From what part would you say is kind of the most interesting here. This quite a few different aspects. I think cutting across different areas You know on one hand. I think If you've been involved in from at all you're very kevin gallagher and sort of pre advocates in and you know of this for some time and i think he did. He described it as a sort of perspective risk management as well. You know you're trying to you're trying to avoid locking out upsetting kita one key differentiator. A there's a. There's a number of them. I think but won't different areas. If you decide to use react native reuse flutter or use a variety of other coaches that have been there over. The years is a song that amount of of and and you know it's an all or nothing sort of approaching the with with commodity farm and it allows you to manage. You know you. Can you can sort of put in graduate. Start using it. Then the flip side of that is this touches on a couple of areas obviously but folks on sheriff business logic as ios an underdeveloped. I wanna use the best of breed technologies ideas get companies. That can when i on on iowa. Sony's combine that we have to frame of their likewise android. Cauchon coatings influence worth and that. That's the key difference here. You know that focus that you know it. I think touches on another area. I think we've got sort of a certain level of maturity culture monte platform where i think a good sign some regards that we've gone beyond okay. This is proof of concept What's it about renown sort of digging deeper into so architectures and different approaches. You can use. And i think this is is little bit as sort of a simplistic way sometimes mentioned quotas just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do something so i think we've be careful. You know it is. Its main sort of setting point is is as focused on shared logic. I see a lot of discussions pushing further up the stack. You know the view model and potentially you you hear in the context composed nowadays. of course. why can't we to compose. and. I think there's a danger to honest. Econ generally too much of a dangerous on too far up and then it just becomes another spot framework. I think our approach in general
Cicely Tyson, her memoir just out, was active to the end
"This was not the news I was expecting to share with you. This is not how I was expecting the beginning of the show to start today as you just heard. Great actor Cicely Tyson died yesterday. She was 96. I spoke to her just a few days ago. You might have heard us talk on Tuesday. It was the day her memoir came out. It's called just as I am. I was saying to someone like Yesterday. I think one of the senior producers of the show does like how profoundly moved I was by Cicely Tyson. By her perspective, her presence, especially at 96. Also like her gratitude. You know, I complain about stuff all the time and to hear her go at the end of the interview. The last thing she said to me was Tom. I am so grateful For this moment. In time we talked about her early days, We talked about her career defining roles. We talked about movies like the Autobiography of Jane Pittman or and Sounder. We talked about her role in the TV series roots We talked about Everything you know, most recently she was and how to get away with murder. Miss Tyson's co star on that Syriza Viola Davis tweeted this last night and I wanted to read it for you quote. I'm devastated. My heart is just broken. I loved you so much. You were everything to me. You made me feel loved and seen and valued in a world where there is still a cloak of invisibility. Us dark chocolate girls. You gave me permission to dream. Cicely Tyson's accolades are too many to list here. Emmys, Golden Globes, A Peabody, a Tony and honorary Oscar mult multiple in the Deep Image awards. I mean, you know a million things. Had a clear vision. Mission to bring complex and nuanced black characters to the screen and on stage and tow uplift others who had dreams just like hers. When I got to speak to Cicely Tyson again just a few days ago. That dedication was crystal clear. I am so grateful. We got to bring you that conversation. So much of it is stuck with me and Especially the part where she talked about getting the presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2016. That moment is a moment that will live with me forever forever. And someone pointed out to me not too long ago. That I was the last person and his administration to receive it. Okay on that, he said. He made that statement. And then, he said And she's cool, gorgeous one than I need, huh? That's pretty good. If that gets into your presidential medal, you know that's a good sign. That's right. Well, you know, maybe this is a good way to close it off your 96 years old now and, you know, I think a lot of people want to know about the secret to a long life. And in the book you talk about how celery juice and morning pull ups are part of a key role. But what what other advice would you give people? I think that when, uh You get up in the morning and you're fortunate enough to see daylight. You're blessed on when I get up, and I see daylight. I first thank God I go into my meditation. Another change, and that gives me the faith. The car I thank God first. Very sick needs a face and a trust to go on for another day. And I think that's the most important thing that one have Detective Thank God just seeing another day. I never thought I would like to be 96 years old. My God, Every member of my family is gone. I am so surviving member of my family, and I was not expected to be here past three months.

Tyson is here with us to tell us more about Cicely Tyson. Miss Tyson. Welcome. It's such an honor to have you with us. Thank you. No. Honestly, if someone were to write the story of your life as a novel, I don't think people would believe it. I mean, you started modeling at the age of 30 when most models air hanging up their stilettos. You got your first starring role when you were nearly 50. I mean crazy. That's life. At least mine. Does it seem that way to you? Well, it's remarkable to me that I have arrived. Where I am today, because I had that anticipated it. I made the decision based on things that happened to be along the way. And I just kept going, You know, no matter what happened in my life it did not did not deter berate from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. You write very movingly of your parents, even though you are very honest about the difficulties they had in their relationship, and also frankly, some of the difficulties You had with them. Your memory seems so sharp like I remember you writing about the delicious potatoes your mother would make and yes, at lunch and it just it just amazing to me that you could remember. It's always details. It is amazing, but they was they so impacted my life at the time. Uh, they they affected me in a way that I could not forget those memories and my sister and I sit down sometimes and salivate over them the potatoes and you said her Mac and she's had no equal No one No one and she made a chicken soup that will make you Licked a hair out of your nostrils. Hmm. So So you write about how you kind of fell into acting after a modeling career that just improbable, moderate wing career like you learned literally. Um, a zoo. We said in the typing pool of the Red Cross, and you'd kind of go to the department stores on the kind of the late, Great Lord, Take your lunch hour. That wasn't my favorite place, sadly, just closing its doors. When did you decide that acting? Was your calling? What was the thing that made you say? This is what I have to do. It happened. We could. I learned that I could speak. Through other people. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions in order to understand what they were. Well, I wanted to know what planted them just say and do things that they did. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. Was a silencer, but I was a great observer. Remember, you're writing about the effect. That's a role like sounder had on people where you played Rebecca and I think many people might know the story. Poor Paul Winfield played against you as the Nathan and you played Rebecca and it's It's a story of kind of a loving black couple. Basically, just trying to live against that almost exactly right. Yes, And what amazing was you said that some of the reactions that people got when, like, for example, television writers, saying that they didn't realize that black Children called there Parents, Dad and, Mom, can you imagine that? Understand motion for sounder and after I finished after the film was completed, this journalist said. That he discovered a bit of bigotry and himself. But he realized that this black boy, which should buy first son, Kevin Hooks called his father Daddy. On and when I asked why, he said, That's what my son calls May and I'm not. I tell you, Uh, I was so started to be a few minutes to catch my breath in order. To question What is this man thought? That we were human. You know why Pat my son call his black father Daddy as his sons. Called him and it was at that time that I decided I could not afford the luxury of just big fractures. There were certain issues I have to adjust. And I thought I would use like a rare as why flat floor and you know we can't let you go without talking about Miles Davis. Oh, Yeah, well, you can't because she was part of my life. What do you think you learned from that? I mean, you write about the fact that you all were like the it couple at the time. I mean, you were one of the couples in me. He's a jazz legend. You are a legend in your field. On yet, you know, he had some issues as we as we all know, I mean, he had a serious drug problem and Some other sort of issues. Demons that he was dealing with. What do you think you learned from that relationship? I wish people knew the Miles Davis that I knew. Really because to you can walk into a bookstore and you sing dreams of books about Miles Davis and few people who wrote the books. Yeah. Not only was she feeling they talented, he was brilliantly sensitive, and that is the Miles Davis that people know. I don't know that he was trying to Okay? You have a very forgiving spirit. Well, Isn't that what we're supposed to do? Forgive each other, huh? We don't keep riding a rough truck over a sensitive so you can't do that. People are looking for help. And you look and you see them And you know that they need help. Okay, and you can help them. At least I can. I can always speak myself. Okay on. So what? I realized that he was in deep trouble on that he wanted he wants. He said I don't want to do that anymore. Okay. Uh, So when somebody says that to you And they're asking for help at this. I would try to help them. Before we let you go, Miss Tyson. We have only just scratched the surface of your remarkable life. And I am so honored to have had this time to spend with you. But before I let you go, do you have some advice for younger artists are those just Beginning their careers after you've done so much and seeing so much and been through so much Do you have any advice that you would share Death? Stick with it? Just stick for that. There's a reason why there's always a reason why you keep going in the direction you chose to go. And that is the legend. Sicily Taison, her new book, Just as I am is out Tuesday. Cicely Tyson. Thank you so much for speaking with us. It isn't Even honor by appreciate so much time. Thank you.

'cause you do the Lakers post game show? Do you think Laker fans care about the season series between the Lakers and the clippers? I think it would be nice, but look the big pictures all that I think's GonNa matter. You could almost say the same thing for I think we'd all agree 'cause. We got to watch Lebron every single game this year, having Lebron when MVP would would mean a lot to Laker fans having Lebron finals. MVP is the only thing that matters so i. think kind of with the Lakers. Lakers and the clippers. Clippers won this game. They go three two one in the season series. I don't think it's going to be that big of a deal. But but the precaution on D. don't no need to take that risk there. Okay, so settling arguments, Leila. All NBA teams have to be in tonight. If you have a vote for all NBA, you gotta turn it into night. Mason and I both agree that Lebron James Anthony Davis Jaanus and Luca are all first team NBA, where we different is I would put coli as my fifth first team. All NBA Guy and Mason would put harden. Would you do you agree one of us? Would you put somebody? Would you go completely different than than we have, so I? I was listening to the argument and it's a fair argument you. What did you say Mesa many games of? Playing forty one ish. Fifty or fifty one hardball ten more, Games. Or, that's right. That's right, then, then Listen I just it's very very tough for me not to put. On that list like I just think about how impactful he is on a team that is obviously threatening to win Nba Championship I. Think makes my list. You know the the one person I haven't spent enough time looking at and I know John You said it's a it's a no brainer to you is Luca. No brainer is just not even. Look at his numbers yeah yeah. I was GONNA say. I was GONNA. Say hearted over Luca. No. That's. That's crazy that this guy is so shocking. It's not even a question that he stopped Luca I mean, and by the way here's here's why so you of Lou. This is where we disagree. I've got. Luca overcome. Why and you've got luke over harden? No, no, no, you've got you don't have. An hard on your teammates. You have Luca right I've Luca over Kawhi Luca Harden, Lebron, AD and Jaanus, yes, and the only difference is instead of hard. I have. What is yours slater. I Have Anthony, Davis Jaanus Lebron James Coli and then between Luca in Hardin I'm I I? Think I'd put. I know Hardin doesn't play Lick of defense right, but in hardens numbers are ridiculous, too, but you know I i. know what what Lucas done for Dallas. Throw Heart in there before Luca, okay, so Luca. Hardened lead the NBA in scoring okay? But Luca. Is I mean. I i. don't know what else Luca could do. I okay. He's averaging nine. Else's triple double again right? He's averaging. Nine assists a game, which which Oh, by the way is third in the league behind Lebron and trae young. That's I mean he's third in the. League, well, the only ninety also averaging nine rebounds. Sleep he's averaging twenty, nine nine and nine now he only he only played three more games than collided because of injury right, so he played fifty four games, Kawaipuna, fifty one. How do you factor availability into your decision about the all NBA team? Again I think if he played fifty games you. That's good enough for me. Fifty out of sixty one is. Sitting out intentionally like Hawaii. The hardest part of my. Swallowing Coy, but the clippers did have the second best record. In the West which I think is the most difficult conference. Kawhi averaged twenty, eight, seven and five, and he's the best defensive player on the clippers. so I think. I'm sorry didn't quite didn't have that. Many assists your yeah. Idiot. Five assists a game so twenty, eight, seven or twenty, seven, seven and five for quite any semester. Fender guys hat literally half the time you're on the court. Fifty percent of the time you're on the court is on the defense and play. You're playing defense. Gay Harden doesn't play any. and Luca is. He, I don't know what his weaknesses. He's not a great defender, but he's not harden. Look Lucas Amazing and the fact that he's doing it at such a young age and Dallas wasn't expected to be a team that. You know what would I don't know what they're. They're seven spot right now, but they obviously have a huge lead over eight. I mean they're obviously going to be in the postseason. Chance, actually even move up a little bit to Lucas been amazing I I think sometimes you get stuck on the hard part and I'm not a fan I. Think he's slops every play. I think he's paying more attention to try and get to the free throw. You just reminded me. Harden does annoy me. The flop and doesn't is incredibly notes the worst. It's the worst. It's his strategy, but it's. It's incredibly I mean it's smart, right? It's smart strategy, but it's it makes for bad basketball. Do member John You remember this The game last year was that it was the first home game last year when the rockets and the Lakers got with Hardin, and or actually with Chris, Paul and Rondo, but that when those to. How that! Or do you know why that that? What kind of ignited that you remember what it was? Okay so it was hard in.

Don't know, but you'RE GONNA have to exercise privilege to even give yourself a chance probably Harrow town. All right we are counting down to. Astros dodgers at six ten tonight down in Houston, yeah let me ask them mookie. Betts is hitting one twenty five. He's like three for twenty. Yes, something or nothing nothing. Nothing get off to a slow start. That's right. bellinger's off to a slow start to He's not as bad as mookie. BALANCER maters George Teen is is cory seager. He's hitting three thirteen and he's hitting the ball hard even when he makes out, she's been great. Keith has been great Muncie jet to home runs. The starting pitching has for the most part held up. The only performance wasn't good. Was the Alex would performance? He's on the injured list now. the Alex would performance. He was all over. The place couldn't find the strike zone to save his life so he's on the injured list, and if you're curious now, what are they doing? Kershaw's on the injured list. So as Alex would what are they doing for? starting pitching its bueller tonight? Followed by tomorrow, decifit May Dustin Maze Tomorrow They're leaving Friday. Open right now. They're leaving Friday open. Ability for Kershaw right and and exactly that's where Kershaw could wind up. And, then you're back to Bueller by Sunday so it would go. bueller Tonight Dustin made tomorrow against Houston then the four-game series at Arizona Goes Ross stripling. Thursday maybe kershaw Friday in Arizona than Julio on Saturday and back to Walker. Bueller and Sunday. By the way, Justin Turner also off to a fantastic start, seven and fifteen four RBI's. Greg tonight because the astros cheap. They do. And I would keep an eye out for cheating tonight. Once, you cheat. You'RE A cheater period. You can't cheat. Right once you're a cheater cheater. I will be I. Think it'll be very hard for any of these particular Astros to outrun that legacy verlinden. Hall of fame regardless, but that's primarily for what he did before he got to the Astros, but also he wasn't benefiting from the trash and sound like just was tearing the cover off the baseball. I think that. Jose Altuve. Carlos Correa. Springer George Springer will how? Yeah, we'll all have problems making all star teams and getting hall of fame. Suggested just because they were on those cheating teams, yeah! What will be interesting and where you and I disagree is you think AJ HINCH is getting another managerial job within? Within five years I think he's GonNa have to his way back up I think somebody's going to hire him as a bench coach and maybe. Five Years I. Think, he is a manager. Yeah, I think after five years is as best shot. I think Jeff. Liu Now is done. Jeff Liu now is going to have a very difficult time coming back I. Think Jeff Liu now and Sam Hinkie are going to be the same. They're going to be like what Paul de Pedestrians Woah Sam Hinkie. You can say, didn't you could? You could make a case Sam? Hanky didn't know what he was doing. You can't make that case with Jeff. Liu, now Jeff Liu now is. You're saying put that team together right? Here's what I'm saying. In the case of both Jeff Liu now and Sam Hinkie. They did something that fans will never. Be Okay with. Sam Hanky tanked four consecutive seasons. In an attempt to load up the draft and made his fan suffered through that and jeff now cheated so I don't think either one of those can be the head of your operation anymore. I could be wrong. Maybe somebody gives them a chance, but I think those guys are GonNa. Be Like Paul de Padilla they're going to be in the background and be involved, but not running the pedestrians like the. Isn't it the president of the browns? No, he's like the vice president of analytics Oh. Is that what it is? Yeah I think. I think Sam Hinkie's a professor at Stanford now. Yeah, which is probably where he'll stay. Yeah, aright coming up next for you..

"But it's not important from a standings perspective and I don't think that they're going to win the West now. Let's do this. It will determine the season series. The clippers the Lakers after Thursday. We'll have played four times. The Cooper's when I do the Lakers one the last one. Does the season series matter to you at all none whatsoever not to me. Yeah I mean you gotta you. Whatever happens tomorrow night? You got thrown out or Thursday night. You gotTA throw out it's a seating game. Everybody's got different. Perspective on it. You Know Anthony Davis May or may not play could potentially play some and not all. It's not important that they win that game on Thursday night. I want them to win a hope they win. It would even the season series of too but I think he can kind of throw all the seating games out to some degree. A and the Lakers built a nice five and a half came cushion up so. I'm excited about the game on. Thursday think it's going to be fun. Brian is going to go off I can't wait to call it.

"You know hits home now that you see in the. Half the team you know, get infected and go from one city to another so. I got friends on on that Miami. Teen and it really stinks man. I'M NOT GONNA lie sugarcoated. To see those guys go down like that. It's not good for for stock. Good for anybody you know I got. An clemenza really concerned as well and. For me, this is this is my family and I worry about these guys anybody around US I. Don't want anybody sick, so this is definitely a big concern. I can't say that I'm not thinking about it. You know because I am I got this morning. I woke up and had all these text messages and. Doctors some different managers and definitely a level of concern. Hopefully, that is resolve. And what you hear, there is a guy who's genuinely I. Think it's fair to say scared. I mean I. Think if you're in that world right now. Dave Martinez had a heart condition last year. So you know that may or may not be a pre existing condition. He talked about that later on in the interview but if you are a philly right now, and you just played the Marlins and you knew there were all those positive tests, and you knew there was an incubation period to catch the virus, and you got to be tested every day this week. Aren't how are you feeling right now? scared. Yeah, I think they're all going to be a little bit hesitant at the interesting thing to me. Is that all twenty? Nine got tested on Friday yes zero positive tests except for the Marlins Yep. So how did they get it? I I I told you my theory. My theory is that it's because Miami Dade County is. The heart of the Cova crisis in the United States. That's where, but I think I four cases there than anywhere. Yeah, I think they got tested before they left Miami. On, Wednesday, but again you're not figuring in and they all tested positive on Sunday four tested positive on Sunday the rest tested positive a Monday, yeah! Reaching to see how how it all comes out. Do we have a do? We have a Karen or it, Ken. We've got Ken today. Now. I have received a lot of feedback from people on twitter who are married to women named Karen. A lot of Karen husbands are concerned that we are not giving fair time equal time to the fact that men can also be unbelievably obnoxious and self entitled. And so, when somebody's like that, they are either a Ken or a Chad. Is that right Michael? Yes, at Chad or Ken yes, John, what do you WanNa? Go with Chad or can. Can is more is more like emblematic of Karen. I think yeah Karen or cute couple. Don't invite them over to dinner. All right so here is our example of a can. You know for what get going.

Don't serve if you ain't going to get out. I'm. Watching you're talking? You, need to chill. Out. Car. You. Don't you came up in. Flint, hills. All said. I didn't say I. Did I never wanted you ain't going viral when you got? Your forty-five-year-old. Do you talk to? Final forty-five-year-old. BEDDIS? You. What am I going to let you know? Yeah, he went points. Life. Life there you have. Does this go on? He spent probably ten minutes demanding that this kid and when I say a kid, I mean he's saying it a twenty year old. This is a forty five year old man. A fat forty five year old man can. Who is demanding because this kid missed a traffic signal that he must get out of the car and get into a fight with them. Wow and he was just mad about nothing mad about nothing mad about and. He. Looks a lot like Sammy Hagar. You're right he does. He looks like he's A. He's a psych Sammy Hagar now, yeah! And by the way, the Katie said or the guy who said this isn't GonNa go viral. Forty five year old guy this is this is pretty viral. This is pretty viral. We. Just gave him gave him the stage for a couple of minutes all right John we should update. People were just about forty eight hours away. In fact, forty-eight hours from right now we will be in Lakers pre-game Lakers vs clippers, the restart of the NBA season and the Lakers have an injury issues that they're dealing with well, and we don't know if Anthony Davis is GONNA play on Thursday, night or not. Here's The backstory Davis. was playing in the LAKER scrimmage Saturday morning in Orlando. He was a big game. He only played one quarter. He had twelve points nine rebounds, and you got poked in the eye. The Lakers took him out of that game and then yesterday when they had a scrimmage against the wizards, he didn't play. We talked about it yesterday. We all assumed well. He'll be fine to play against the clippers on Thursday, but listen to frank mogul. Here's Frank Vogel talking about whether or not. AD is going to play against the clippers on Thursday night. Day to day, and while he's still dealing with. Discomfort. There is some concern that he could potentially not play Thursday, but we're hopeful that he does and we'll. We'll see how that plays out. You know he's going to. Continue to be evaluated each day. So, I don't think frank puts that out there unless it's a possibility so I. Think it's a coin flip whether we see Anthony Davis. Hopefully we will epic. mcmanamon was on earlier ad has played to a lot of injuries, but as a guy who wants to Lakers to win the title I'll go with whatever they decide if they arrest him I'd I'm not. Not Worried about a seating game against the clippers eight games from the end of the year I. Think the Lakers are going to be the number one seed. The most important thing is Lebron James and Anthony Davis healthy to the playoffs, so whatever they roll with I'm good. Yeah, I mean I. Don't WanNa say. The game is unimportant because the game is important. For Los Angeles it's important for the franchise's to support for the NBA. It's important for fans all that stuff..

"I am going low when they go. Hi, we go low. That's the way I'm viewing this thing with the Astros. What's going to be weird seeing them on the same field tonight? With no fans, they caught such a break when no fans will out into the Games because they would have member buster came on, and said they will be public enemy number one in every city. They go to Yup. And now whatever city they go to. They're no fans. So they cut a huge break in that regard, didn't they? Now they did they. They caught a huge break a huge break because there's not going to be that public reaction to them. That's why I think it's up to the dodgers to choose their spot, and by the way may not be tonight. Maybe maybe it's a tight game tonight. Maybe it's five to four in the eighth inning and can't afford. Do maybe you wait until they come to dodgers? Wait until they come to dodger stadium. You get a lead. You plunk somebody. I just think at some point. You gotTA plunk somebody. It'll. That's what fans really want that. I'm speaking for the fans. I would like to see. Some form of justice meted out. It's never gonNA. Make up for the fact that they stole our 2017 world series. It's never going to make up for the fact that we didn't have a big parade. In two thousand seventeen to celebrate the first dodgers win since nineteen eighty eight. But I but I'm telling. It would be satisfying to see an astro. Get plunked. Have you heard of this picture that they have going? Ember Valez no, in fact. I was looking at the rotation. Their rotation is really thin well. No Gear Cole no Justin verlander. They've they've got a very human? No relation, no Charlie Morton who left a couple years ago Tampa. mccullers and then Zach Cranky is in their rotation. Those are kind of their big horses. This guy I've never heard of Don't know who he is the left. They're gonNA. Throw tonight I'm assuming a kid. But yeah, they're not. They're not as invincible like. When I look at that roster, they'll hit the hell out of the ball. They're just GONNA hit all year long and they're bullpens, really good. But I think I like the as to win the division in the Astros to finish second in the west the. Not that it frigging matters I mean everybody's in. Doesn't matter if you're the one seat or the eight seat. Baseball. It's three game series. What a travesty! What a joke that is! What a joke! Well what? What a joke that they're letting all those teams. Yeah, they're letting everybody in, and then it's a three game frigging series. Are you kidding me anything? We just watched. The dodgers split a four game series. Anybody can beat anybody in a three game series. You One pitcher. He had one guy. One hitter gets off to a really hot start and has a killer series. All the sudden. You're out of the playoffs. I'm telling you. Baseball's going to regret it if they go to this new playoff setup and then a team like the dodgers, major market team or a team like the Yankees major market team gets bounced in a three game series, and all the sudden you have the playoffs with no Yankees or no dodgers I think that's a disaster for baseball. I don't think it'll happen I, think both the Yankees and the dodgers get through. At least one of them gets through. I think that's what the what the situation probably is. All right coming up a little bit later is game of Games Mason desperately need. A must win. Situation Yeah must win. And coming up next our friend Frank Kellyanne. has weighed in on something and. We'll share that with you. You've heard the big news in the NFL today that six patriots. Yes well. Let's just say that bill chicks reacted to that. If you know what I mean, okay, good good. We've got that coming up for you. Next Mason Ireland seven ten ESPN. Seventeen Espn Mason and Ireland somebody on twitter John just read this. Get over it. Somebody tweeted. Never ever yeah, no! Fans ever going to get over where you had to throw it. All it was brutal. Brutal wasn't that more than you'd ever paid to attend a sporting event the game seven game. Yeah, that was the most I ever spent for a sporting event even more than the super. Bowl at that place was absolutely packed and rock. Until you darvish fluid I still go back to game five game five of that world. Series Clayton Kershaw gave up a four run lead a three run lead had big leads, and had plenty of cushion, and instead the astros stole it banging their trash cans the way they were. Obvious people, Obvious. All right. So what's Frank Kelly end up to? Why do I don't know if we haven't yet French it yet. Yeah, we got guys okay so. As you know, frank is a master impressionist. Yes, so he sat down today twos. The Fred Travel Lena of his generation is to. Suggest what Bill Belichick might be saying to players today after six different patriots. Opted out of the upcoming season here is frank slash, Bill. Understand. Say! No not that. You got to look out for yourself I. Right. Correct there is no team. But. There is an covert. And Virus Bergen. Okay well. I can't influence you either way. Don't you think you needed him? By. You'll sit down. And there's Bill Belichick and by the way already a conspiracy theory out there that Bella check is telling guys. You know what we don't know if this season's going to happen, we don't know if it's GONNA finish. Go ahead and take it off because we're GONNA tank and we're GONNA draft. Trevor Lawrence for next year. I can't imagine that's true, but who knows they have Cam Newton Mace or as you say, they have jared jared stem more incentive to play Jarrett Stidham. Jared starts now with these six guys. Drop it out then. I'm saying. You're onto something yeah yeah. By the way if you're just tuning in the the here's the latest on the Marlins and Cova vid. Four additional members of the marlins tested positive today for covert nineteen that brings the total in their traveling party to seventeen members, testing positive for the corona virus, the Phillies who the marlins played over the weekend, had zero positive covid tests so far, but because there is an incubation period for covert. We don't know if anybody on the fills. Has It until later in the week? That's why the phillies will play on Friday. At the earliest their games this week have been postponed meanwhile, Miami's games have been postponed until at least. Monday. The Washington nationals were supposed to play in Miami this weekend, but Dave. Of the nationals announce that his team voted not to play in that series and by the way. Martinez is a guy who's honestly concerned. Do you have that Dave Martinez here? He is on the outbreak of the Marlins my level of concern and went from about eight to twelve. I.

"The rematch of the two thousand seventeen world series dodgers seeing for the first time, the team that stole the world series from them since. It actually happened three years ago. And there is still anger. Amongst fans less so against a from players now it seems to have calmed down a little bit, but fans really really want to see something. Happen tonight all right. Here's the lineup for the dodgers. The dodgers coming to this game to and to the astor's or three and one. mookie Betts in right field maximum. Z. Batting second at first Justin Turner. Third, batting, third. Cody Bellinger, banning fourth and center Chris Taylor is the D. H. Tonight. This is a left handed pitcher. Guy Fram Valdez that starting for the Astros. Cory, Seager, Short Bat, Sixth Aj pollock and left bat seventh. Eighth at Second Base I'm surprised. Kiki's for down in the lineup against a lefty and will smith is the Catcher Walker Bueller is going to be the starting pitcher. Why didn't Kiki's baton eighth? Just think they're going left. Right left. Right left, right? I mean you got in this case? Right left right left. Right left. Right left right so they're facing a lefty, so mookie leads. And I think honestly Chris Taylor. Off To is off to a good start Kiki's off to a really great start. I think a lot of ways. Those lower spots in the order are really valuable, because Kika gets and all the sudden mookie. Betts comes up into hitters. So I think. I think that left right left or right left right left. Thing is GonNa work and we're going to see it all year long. I think a lot of ways Chris Taylor Keith. interchangeable, they may see something in the matchups. I don't I. Don't exactly know, but all right. Here's the Astros Lineup Springer two Bregman Brantley Gabrielle Korea Josh Rettig the former dodger batting seventh. Kyle Tucker batting, eighth and Martine Maldonado the catcher batting ninth I'm so they only have two left in the lineup against for or against Walker Bueller. Michael Brantley Josh Rettig and Korea Pretty far down the lineup baton sixth yeah yeah. So, what are people expecting tonight? I think most people are expecting that somebody's getting plunked. Okay, let's have some hit by pitches. Let's go out on the phones to Scott from Venice Scotch around seven ten ESPN. What's going on man? Her, From Heart. We don't forget post pitch clock alright. We'll wait mates first pitch. Kerr plunk let me ask that so springer's up. Walker bill comes in hits him. So then, Walker. Bueller gets warned, so he can't throw inside the recipe and he puts a runner on first in the bottom of the first inning. That's not I would not do it in the first inning I think the scenario that lines up for somebody getting plunked is healthy lead. Eighth or ninth inning? Cleanup, reliever somebody like Caleb Ferguson. Who's really good but I mean you know if you were to lose him? If you were to be objective, you're okay. And that's the scenario and. altuve Ace Springer Korea Bregman you hit any of them but I. I disagree with Adrian Garcia Marquez because. altuve as the one that stole the MVP that's why I think he's emblematic of what the Astros did. He wasn't the only one doing it, but because he won the MVP and I think that at three forty six had some ridiculous numbers. I think he in most ways as the face of that thing. Let's go to Roy in culver, City Hey Roy on seven ten espn. Good afternoon, guys. You make a lot of sense. Do it later in the game and look him in ours. Don't be stupid. Don't vote the head. We look are dodger. Fans pissed. I am pissed been waiting since eighty eight to bring that trophy home. It's ours, but you darn right. You GotTa Plug Somebody and let them know we shouldn't forget come on. I have to take a national board every year to do my job and if I cheated on my boards, I would be run out of my industry I was never allowed to take them boards again. Cheating is cheating. What am I going to tell my grandkids? How do you present this? No, you well. Why don't the but Roy you present an interesting problem I? Am against throwing it people. Period I. think that the the baseball one hundred an hour is a weapon, and you shouldn't throw it people, but they may speed chase. The problem with this is those players weren't punished by Major League baseball at all, so it feels roy like it's an unpunished group of people. Come into the played against. You make a really good point, right? Because You don't does somebody said I'm not a believer that you hit him in the ribs either I think he hit him and hands. Wrist ribs all that stuff off limits by you hit him in the ASS. Right where the wallet is carried. That's where you hit. That's the spots where. Got Sadder by that world series from us. here is Dylan in fallbrook. Hey, Dylan you're on seven ten ESPN. Guys. What's up, man? I take it is. you know I wanna be the higher road you know if if two years ago back I get the cheating I think a man pretty was soft on them but you bring up a lot of points that you know it gets. It gets the blood lean and you know. That's that's Dario. Seven up seven winning the A. Pig on to Korea, probably career with for the for the comments he made on the off season. Yeah, true did snap back at cody bellinger. You're absolutely right. Korea might be the guy to hit. Thanks man appreciate folk. Yeah, that's. You know he said talked about taking the high road and I don't think any dodger fan is prepared to take the high road when it comes to the Astros like I I'm I'm traveling the gutter man..

"Yeah Seventeen Espn Mason Ireland. In the wake of the Lou Williams, lemon pepper wings scandal. We call that a scandal. Sure sure why not? Why don't we have something at some restaurant in town named after us, what should have donut named after you at that place? You always buy donuts. Any place as much as Lou Williams goes through magic city. I do I do order from decays, donuts and Santa Monica Lot. Decay should have a mason inspired donut. Yeah, I think it's a good idea. Rit joining us right now. Good night last night for L., AFC as they beat Seattle, they avenged their their semifinal loss to the sounders last year, preventing them to go to the MLS championship game, but they avenged that last night and joining us right now is the guy who does pre and post game for Seventeen Espn Adrian Garcia, Marquez. Adrian Hardy Man. Guys me your doctor. Get to talk to you guys gate. Named after soccer, Nate Mason you missing y'all like it may seen. You. You do you know may sway Adrian Calls Me Duck tour. No. Adrian you tell them? Because anytime, you need any type of medicine you're on. The road doesn't matter what it is. What ailment Johnny has got. You had something in his bag. That will set you straight for the rest of the day week. Whatever base I have every type of cold medicine ever invented in my backpack. If! You ever get any type of an.

You got a new. York Amen. Amen. Alright so Adrian! Let's let's talk about L. EMC for a second and and you watch these guys a lot more than I do last year Seattle. Beat L. AFC when they had Carlos Valer their best player. In Seattle did it at of California stadium so last night. Surprise me just because. Not only the AFC beat them. They beat him up. They beat them four to one. which in soccer is a pretty lopsided result? What why do you think that is? Why was it? Why not only did they win? But why were they so dominant without Valer? Well number one just speaks to how well coached they are there well oil machine. They do what they're supposed to do. They're not worried about the rival Bob. Bradley has them. You know well-coached up and it their deep. They're DEEPA. Talent I mean. were. For All intents and purposes guy's GonNa win the Golden Boot. I mean no I. Don't see anybody taking that from him because they turn out and he's been money talk. Brian? He gets who been phenomenal, replacing innocent and I use that word loosely replace. You can't replace like realize on another dimension more than a lot of players, and we all know this, but another guy has step up. You guys saw the Yankees. You know. They had that last year next man up next man up. This is what happened What happened with Elliot Theater in the in the Orlando. What's next man up and? Is then from the back to the front with with Mac with west of moving the ball forward and let you blessing all the things that they do. You combine that with the constant attack I mean. I messed around with this on the Air Davy at the same thing, and it's like they remind me of the Air Coryell chargers in the eighties. They basically challenge you to stop them offensively, and and they get caught up sometimes because they're so good at pushing the ball and just attack, attack and attack that there have been I mean they were coming from behind her in the group stage? They found themselves in a whole last night. I think they rectified all of that. They were closing spaces real quick that the back line was doing beautiful so I think they're hitting their stride at the right time and one other detail Bradley Has World Cup. Coaching experience and And this is a World Cup type tournament so having that having a guy that knows how to get the proper rest, proper nutrition using the clock to the best possible way in other words, according to this type of tournament, and you're seeing with the talent, and how deep they are. I don't see anybody stopping them in Orlando City is not going to be easy. Always got used to coach shallows. He has them and they have some you know they're. They're also deep to have a lot of talent, but. For my money, if Elliot's, he plays their game and they do what they did last night they had sixteen to shot differential guys in the first hour signal to how? They they're gonNA play. They're gonNA do their thing. They'RE GONNA gun. They're gonNA. Throw it. They're gonNA chuck it you name and they're ready to go in and I think they're coming at the right time. Okay, let me throw something at you. This is a big picture question that I was thinking about I was Gonna ask John during during the the scoop earlier L. AFC won the Supporters Shield for best record in the MLS last year they had the MVP. M records that are Carlos Villa. They played playing really well in Orlando Seattle last night. Of course they play their home games at Bank of California Stadium, which I think is one of the greatest venues. In Los Angeles. It's beautiful. It's beautiful. The galaxy got knocked out early. They were lackluster last year. They play their home games at Dignity Health Center which is fine, but has L. AFC. overtaken. The galaxy is L. A.'s leading soccer club. Oh Yeah and down, and they did it block by block street by street. That's exactly what they they you know. They tell you. They've done it right and I think that. At this point you know, Kobe Jones couple Jones. That's my brother right there. We do games together on TV. We maximum. We had this discussion the other day We were talking in fact, they were bringing this up they. They were talking about. Ask yourself an honest question. Can Galaxy Galaxy you know winning three games in the the answer is no not right now. They don't have with John Santos. There are a whole different teams, so the vibe going back to your point, which team matters more to La Right now I think that they did you know kind of turned galaxy into the clippers and and the Lakers. Very Inching Adrian Garcia Marquez is with us. Ok Adrian I want to ask you to non L. AFC. Things for people that don't know. Adrian used to be a minor league baseball player. Did you know that may I had no idea okay, so Mexico league style, but it's cool. Okay, SO ADRIAN OFF! In about an hour. The dodgers are gonNA play the Astros. These teams do not like each other. It is the I. It is the First Time Adrian. They've seen each other. Since the punishments for the Astros were announced, and the dodgers feel like the Astros cheated him out of the twenty nine world series. Like! They did all right so Adrian. You've always in Mason. Spin the same way you've always told me. Baseball players police themselves. Seem so obvious to me that the dodgers would throw at the astros tonight to to Kinda. Send them a message, but because it's so obvious Adrian, because everybody knows they might do it. Do they wait or somebody getting one in the ribs tonight? I think if if the count merits of pitch that you can kind of waste and hey, if it gets away from you and ended up on so much cheap. Someone's read so that when they call for laughs the rest of the weekend. You.

MLS Cup in the slalom experience Sunday at noon hopefully cheering the rave green onto our second. MLS Cup trophy. I will be there. I will not have my voice on Monday Monday regardless well. Congratulations to Andrew and go sounders. ABSOLUTELY MONICA YOU'RE random channel. My random channel is about work. We had a story this week. Fun As sports to some but specifically about working less which some people might here here is fun. We had a story this week. That Microsoft experimented with a four day workweek in Japan and productivity jumped by forty percent a four day workweek. How many hours was each day? I think they were standard days. I think it was just. It wasn't like four tens it was like four instead of five live traditional workdays. This is an important question. Let's find this out for sure I don't want to. It's not talk story. And how do they measure productivity i. That's a we will. We will investigate. Success would appeal about this to you. Absolutely nothing you're totally against it. Yeah it sounds horrible yes. I think it's interesting because I talk a lot with my friends about the nature of work and it's evolving culture and we've got these two trends moving at the same time where we're so connected that we can can be in communication all the time and work from home a lot of us and that allows for more flexibility but at the same time it's kind of always on mentality so this just struck me. I thought it was interesting. And I especially the productivity piece of it there are so many tech companies that are trying to balance a really tight labor market and offering a lot of perks to their employees employees in order to recruit and retain them with being fast-moving Tech Company and wanting to get as much out of them as possible. So this idea that you could make people more efficient with less time. Time is really interesting to me. It's really funny that you brought this up with the two of US high. Does this reflect the work style of John and myself of Youtube will you guys are always working gang aspiring someday to get to six day Workweek d work with. I hope you've got to reduce down to one. I mean I think it speaks to the flexibility of our care because has we do work from home kind of whatever we want. We work from the road. We we work a lot of hours and we work very hard here but I think that when employees have flexibility eh whether that's a shorter week or just the ability to kind of own their time more they actually do get more done in our more comfortable being available or by the and that is something. That's I think really important as if you're working all those hours you get to choose the seventy hours that you work. Every week you get to swinging only termites we can all dream such a life. Okay speaking of productivity and Microsoft. Actually little did you know that you're random channel would segue into mine Monica Committee. I planned the whole thing. I don't know if you know this about me but I am a real nerd when it comes to text to speech applications. I know that if I can be more productive by having an assistant virtual actual assistant a machine read things to me. I am all over it. If there's something where I don't have to be sitting in front of a screen in a chair. I can be writing an exercise bike with my noise cancelling headphones I can be shooting baskets. I can be jumping on a trampoline. Don't make fun of me. Monica I know you know. That's my pet topic but I can have my ear pods on and the trampoline and catch up on the news. Not just podcast but things read to me. I love it so Microsoft. This week came out with a new feature feature for iphone and outlook. That will play your emails. That's the verb that they use. I just got got in on the preview of this and I'm going to be trying it out and so the idea. Is You basically tell Cortana to play your emails and then the phone phone switches into an alternative you I. I haven't actually used it yet. I've just seen it so that's why I'm not precise on exactly what it is but it actually reads the emails to your salutes. Actually listened to a little bit about that. Sounds like I have five emails for you right. Now this'll take about five minutes beguel. L. Garcia changed the time for customer debris from one PM to two PM a few minutes. Ago Lydia. Bauer sent an email about marketing marketing team event. Just to you. It says. Did you see Collins Ideas. Hey cortana flagged this email. Yesterday cat sent an email about research proposal. It says sounds great. You're all caught up. There's actually no background music when you actually do that. That was a Microsoft. Promotions can say wow man I'm really pumped up really excited about this. Not Not for you Monica. I'm against it would make me more efficient and I'm hard no. I'm a hard no on this too. I'M GONNA prove you wrong well. You're doubling doubling your work because I like to read an email and act on it at the same time this is like you're reading all of them and then sorting them for later responses and then when you go into respond you have to read it again to respond. That's not what I plan to. I plan to for the most part archive things but what I don't know because you know you and I both have our g mail set up in a really efficient way so that the stuff that you're probably going to need to respond to is in the important on and unread and the stuff that you're probably not going to need to respond to his lower if you're just gonNA listen all of those. It's not prove me wrong on the next podcast set up the parameters of it that it only is reading your most priority Yeah inbox then. You have to go back and respond to them respond Cortana. You can't say when this sounds good. You're like awesome. Uh thanks keep working at. Yeah I I I. This is one thing he never actually sounds like me. Keep talking about. Here's the deal. I do love Monica to this automated response. I'm not I'm not buying. I don't think this would work for May but I have started to use the automated reactions that Google those I I. You know that that is really really a lovely feature. Yeah no this is kind of the. This is in that same vein though. It's just it's the audio process S.. Okay we'll audio and my we'll see machine. I struggle with that. I like where it's headed though. I just want as I've said many times I just want the SD card slot in the back of my head. And then the Matrix Upload Information and most importantly almost like Double Doors Pen seve where he would put his most troubling. I thought's up on the shelf for the night so he could sleep. That's what I want to you. You have much more bullish on magic than technology called psychotherapy. But I'm not sure so. Oh One last rant here because I I like this idea but I am Kinda pissed at Microsoft about this because those people convinced me to switch from iphone to android because of those people Samsung will such I talk about Adela convinced you in indirectly. Yes I told him this if you haven't heard our interview with him. We talked talked about this a little bit last week. At any rate I switched because they came out with these new features for the galaxy note ten android device that work well with windows and make windows more like a first party experience with the phone for the very reasons that we talked to. We heard about from Bill Gates earlier. Microsoft doesn't have a viable mobile operating system so they have to partner anyway I switched to Android and they come out with his damn thing on. IOS What the Hell pick a platform Microsoft. If you don't have your own at least pick one that you think your people should your customers should use come on. It's really are everywhere though..
"sounders" Discussed on GeekWire - Geared Up
"Welcome back it's todd. Bishop with Monica Can Nicklesberg and John Cook. It was a big week here. In Seattle. There was an election and Amazon played a bigger role in this election. And then we've seen it play in the Seattle community in a long time. Monica can you set the stage for us here. Sure seven of the nine Seattle City Council seats were up for for grabs and there were some other initiatives on the ballot that were pretty important and three weeks before the election Amazon donated a million dollars to the Seattle Chamber of Commerce is Political Action Committee and that money went toward supporting the candidates that this pack had endorsed. They're all seen as more business. Friendly pragmatic pragmatic candidates versus the more progressive wing of existing Seattle City Council incumbents and newcomers. who were expected to kind of carry on in this tradition of passing very progressive policies? That have really rankled Amazon in the past so the pro business candidates In this case it across most parts of this country would be considered radical liberals. It's Seattle politics are middle left to very left. So that's where we should just set the stage at the Gecko but that also makes this such an interesting microcosm to these broader trends that we're seeing throughout the country where you have some of the policies that candidates for President Like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders Sanders WanNa see implemented nationwide fifteen dollars minimum wage worker protections for domestic workers and GIG economy workers paid family leave these policies policies that are really in the Canon of Progressive Liberalism have been implemented here some of them years ago and on the other side of that we have a call hall for a return to kind of good government to pragmatism to just kinda slowing things down and getting back to basics and being more efficient in the way that we spend and that call all is really supported by the business community here in Seattle particularly by Amazon which has gone head to head with the city council in the past. It's been a mixed bag. Not Great Great for Amazon. Most of the candidates that they had supported at this point are not leading their opponents. And looks like we're GonNa have a city council. Well that is as progressive if not more progressive than the previous one with one wildcard the most vocal critic opponent of Amazon Council member. Sean is so want who is a member of the Socialist Alternative Party. Her seat is still kind of in contention and her opponent is the one who received the most money from this Amazon backpack back. That's really interesting. So does that mean that Amazon's money can't buy an election. Is that really. What's happened here? In some ways I think as John pointed out in our last podcast Amazon Amazon played into progressives hands. You know they they give them a big rallying cry to say this is a National Rallying Cry Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders talking talking about the city council race in Seattle so this this was the question that you raised and we explored. Did it backfire. What if so what ends up winning which it looks like? The trend line is that she might end up winning the seat. Then it absolutely one hundred percent backfire. You think backfired. I was sticking to Monica privately about this. I was saying my contention is the gap on some of these folks where the more pro-business candidate was ahead. Head would have been much further head had Amazon not stuck their nose into the mix here what we know for sure is it was not a slam dunk for Amazon. It was not like this money came came in and bought a new city council. I would say at best. It supported some of the candidates they wanted. And we'll get a city council that is pretty comparable to the one one that we have now. At worst these elections continued to come in. We're recording this Friday afternoon. We'll see a more progressive city council than we've had in the past. That Amazon has had frustrations with back. Virgin I think so. I think the gap would have been wider here for the more pro business candidates in their winds had had Amazon not inserted themselves it became as Monica set a national rallying cry it was the main issue you saw in Seattle pub politics over the last three weeks and that is not a good place to be. If you're one of these candidates that got the support from Amazon and it was very telling that many of the candidates that got the support from Amazon Fun were pushing back against it. They're like it's not really are my feelings on things. You know disavowed it. They came out with statements. That said Hi. This is a distraction. I agree there too much. Corporate spending in politics and I would support legislation to limit corporate spending in politics for many years Amazon stayed out of politics. They stayed out out of the Seattle community. And I'm wondering if we're now seeing both on the national level and in our city level the fact that they're just not good at got it. Well look what happened in New York with exactly what I'm thinking about not properly handled. Jeff bezos has said in the past on failures like the fire earphone. It wasn't really failure because we knew down the line we were going to have to be in the hardware business and we learned how to be in the hardware business even if this didn't work out that well and then they had the smash surprise hit of the Amazon Echo. I don't feel like they've made those same investments on public policy. And maybe these are the mistakes that are being made that are gonNA lead them to be there. We're just getting into the public policy business. It's been twenty years not really engaging with reporters or with the public of keeping their heads down focusing on other parts of their business and now now is there firefox moment. They're just waiting into public life. And it's it's a little ham handed. It's it's come off as a little tone deaf. I mean they have had some successes like when I alluded earlier to the frustrations they've had with the city council. A big part of that was on the so called head tax which was going to be. On big businesses the council passed it and then repealed it because Amazon played hardball and threatened to slow their growth here. So it's not like this strategy has never worked but there have been a a lot of moments where you wonder what the Calculus was before they made this pr move. I love this analogy. Mon Mon buyer phone. This is the city council race and the Amazon money that was pumped into it as the equivalent of Amazon's failure of the fire phone now as Monica said that led to Echo and Alexa. They figured out she's right here. I think she's right that they're they're they're they're not experienced here. They're learning. They're making mistakes but they're trying to figure this out but what does that. Same principle apply to public policy in the same way that it does to technology products tech markets consumer behaviors because consumers boomers are just like hey cool speaker interesting voice assistant. I'll try that are going to be willing to say the Amazon in the next election. Oh let's hear what you have to say. I do think it. I do think it matters. Todd you had a great interview this week with Alicia Vela van the CEO of the Seattle storm and one of the things. That really really stuck with me from that interview was you can't win unless you've lost and that was a great moment and I think that's what's going on here you can in anything thing and it's in sports politics business. You have to have failures in order to build on those failures to have success. I don't know I don't know if I agree with that in this this case because ever since the head tax and HQ to Amazon has been under a microscope for every decision they make in civic life. And I don't think that's going to change. We're only seeing the public more and more skeptical and frustrated with the tech industry and particularly Amazon. And I think at this point even a good faith the effort to engage civically or put money behind something that they care about is not gonna be perceived that well I agree with you. I think they've used up a lot of the capital that they otherwise might've had by default. And it's going to be tougher and they're going to have to be much much better at it than they are to get back to even a neutral place in the public eye at the same time. We are very very close to these issues and the majority of people out there do not really see Amazon the same way that we do here in Seattle the adult they consistently win the Harris Poll of the most respected companies customer. Still Love them so I think you know they take some of this with a grain of salt because is the most important people to Amazon are necessarily in their backyard. They're all over the world great point and I have to be reminded about that consistently here in the bubble bubble. So thank you all right coming up next. It's the random channel including an amazing response from a fan of the Seattle sounders to Ah Geekwire contest. You WanNa stick around for that. We'll be right back Welcome back it's time for the random channel that moment of the week when we talk about some of the random items. We were buzzing about behind the scenes this week John. There's nothing more buzzword in your world right now than the MLS Cup. I I got the fever. I've got the fever. Ya I am listening to you know. I'm a pretty big podcast listener. I've got my routine on various podcasts. I have completely shifted my podcasting I casting habits here over the last week. I'm hundred percent soccer emma last Cup podcast. Our listeners shifted their podcast listening habits. Let's explain to for them what we're talking about so that we don't lose them. What is the AM Alaska? Seattle sounders professional soccer team. F C are based here in Seattle. They they have a rabid fan base largely consisting of tech people. There's a lot of crossover yet. A new ownership group. I include searching Adela Terry Myerson. Microsoft execs former Microsoft exotic. It's really a tech story. In many ways the sounders against all odds apparently made made it into the Super Bowl of major league soccer the MLS Cup and fans probably wouldn't like that. Yes this is. This is largely accurate. I'm I'm very impressed. Given your limited soccer knowledge is and so the. MLS Cup is going to be held in Seattle on Sunday the tenth November. So you may or may not know the come by the US. They're sold out. They sold out in minutes. And and this is the first time it's ever been held in Seattle. Yes well not not technically. This is the the first time that it's been held in Seattle. The sounders are playing in the MLS Cup they used to have it at a neutral site and so it was hosted at centurylink field but the sounders did not participate in that match. We partnered with slalom consulting to give away some tickets and we put out a call on social media was the call. Well well the folks over at slalom reached out to US early this week and they said hey we got two tickets to our slalom experience which anyone who's been a match at centurylink field knows these great eight pitch side seats and so you're right on the field. They're great seats You can feel the sweat of Jordan Morris lying off of him as he's buzzing down down the wing and so yeah they reached out and said. Hey we thought it'd be Kinda cool to do something with with Geekwire on this and of course we may immediately sprang into action and and said L.. Why don't we do this sort of contest? And we were all brainstorming. We came up with this concept of Geeky sounders fan and so we had a social media competition Russian contest in which folks presented wraps Haiku whose poems photo galleries of their love of the of the sounders and In Greek wire angi choir and Zach. Scott Mr Sounder. Himself was our was our judge on this. He's with slaw. Who now works at Slalom and we had some really funny submissions? So let's hear.

"Or backfire. We'll talk about predicted this a few weeks ago listeners. Exactly so we'll get into that later on in the show but first let's talk about Bill Gates and let's check in with what happened in his interview at the New York Times deal book conference this week with Andrew. Ross sorkin Monica you covered this. We're I'M GONNA listen to a few clips. Let's start with the discussion of taxes because there is a fascinating proposal by Elizabeth Warren the US senator. WHO's one of the front runners for the Democratic presidential nomination to impose a wealth tax? One of the first questions that Bill Gates was asked during this conference. Prince was about that and I was really kind of sitting on the edge of my seat to hear what he would say about it. Because you don't hear from him specifically on a lot of the big proposals from these candidates it's true the really interesting thing about this interview is the interviewer Andrew Got Gates to talk about a lot of things. He doesn't typically venture into who like his personal wealth and how much he pays in taxes and the presidential race and I think that the exchange where he sort of talks around. Elizabeth Warren's proposals is particularly revealing. I've paid over ten billion taxes. I paid more than anyone in taxes. But I'm glad to have you know if I'd had to pay twenty twenty billion that's fine but you know when you say I should pay a hundred billion. Okay then I'm starting to do a little math about what I have leftovers. Sorry I'm just kidding. You really want the incentive system to be there and you can go a long ways without threatening that have you ever. We're talking about and I'm not would you would you want to and I'm not sure. How Open minded? She is or that she'd even be willing. Lean to sit down with somebody who has large amounts of money. So what did Elizabeth Warren say about that. She said she'd be happy to sit down and explain the details of her proposal. Rosal I think what. He was alluding to their that. She's made a real concerted effort to show and her campaign that she's not taking money or even giving the impression of taking money from anyone who's really wealthy healthy so I think what he was saying is she probably wouldn't even like the optics of sitting down with me but now this is a big public conversation and she says she's game. Well okay so are they going to sit down and talk. We'll see I mean. I think they're both pretty busy right now. And you know we've we've seen other exchanges like this on twitter happened before we saw Bernie Sanders calling out Amazon and Amazon saying come by our warehouse anytime and you know. It's it's a little bit of showmanship but I would love to be a fly on the wall if they did ever have this conversation Zhang. Let's facilitate it there. You go yes. We've been talking about this because Bill Gates also is coming out with a new book. Let's leave that off the podcast. We can talk about that offline but no. I like where you're headed John. I gotTa say this interview by Andrew. Ross Sorkin was a master class in Interviewing Bill Gates. Almost I every single question and answer could have been a headline and a story everything from talking about. Jeff Bezos and Elon. Musk to bill gates his own use of technology. It was fascinating. He was saying that he basically has to remind himself to pick up his phone because he he doesn't use instagram and the way he needs to keep his daughter is by watching her instagram posts and like technology has passed Bill Gates by. That is a statement that I never thought I would. I said that was a really interesting moment. He talked about how he's still a big screen guy. In an order to relate to his kids he needs to remember that the new generation is much more small screen focused so he talked talked about meeting to be on Instagram to talk to his daughter. And what's apt to talk to his son and it was really fascinating moment that even the person who arguably created the modern digital age age can be passed by by the next generation. He also dove into some interesting history. That's very relevant right now. And that is the impact of the justice. Department's Percents Investigation of Microsoft the antitrust investigation on the company. And it's relevant now because we're talking about the possibility of breaking up up facebook Google Amazon. That is another one of Elizabeth Warren proposal. So let's listen to what he said about that. I do think there are things about technology companies that it's worth looking at what the policy should be. I'm not sure but there's another one where you can. Sam Super Bias. I I didn't think Microsoft should be broken up argued against it and I wish that on anyone. Do you think it made the technology environment more competitive you you know. I think that's one of the everyone else can say that if they want that. It's not true to me and it's not. I think we've talked before where there was a view that that may be the case. Maybe it's the case itself made of taking the company's eye off the ball around mobile given. Oh definitely did event Hugo. But that doesn't help. That's not a pro consumer thing. There's no doubt that the antitrust lawsuit suit was bad from Microsoft and if we would have been more focused on creating the phone operating system onset onset of using android today you would be using windows mobile if it hadn't been for the Energy Trust case we were so close we you know now I was just too distracted. I screwed that up because of the distraction and we were just three months too late with the release of Motorola would abused on a phone. So yes it's a winner take all game now is for sure now. Nobody hears ever heard of Windows Mobile But oh well. And that's a few hundred billion here. There he went on to say that had Microsoft been able to have a great presence in mobile phone operating systems. He would not have retired as soon as he did. Yeah he was really open in a way that you don't always here and I I think it's a great interview and I think he was. Just maybe prepared to say some of these things because as you know interviewing him. He's he's very guarded on many of these things I'm very Prescribed on what he's going to say I it's it's just interesting hearing his tone in style on this and I gotta say I I was watching the video of it. He started off. He does a lean away from you when he's not engaged and he started off the interview that way and over over the course of the first couple of questions he started sketching backup and he was vertical in his seat. So you can tell he was engaged. What do you make of his comments? There the substance awesome that Microsoft would have perhaps that they were close on mobile. I don't completely buy that. I don't think that they not necessarily would have been the winner of the mobile operating system regardless well I'm more inclined to buy than you are because if you look at what they were doing with windows windows mobile which came before windows phone windows. Mobile was kind of like turning the P. C. into a a small screen whereas windows phone was much more designed for small screens from the outset. I mean I was around covering it back then and they were getting close agree. Well this is where it is this great debate on whether these large technology companies. He's can make this transition in these pivots into these gigantic markets and my contention is that large companies like an IBM or Microsoft in this era were so large and so baked into their into their monopoly position that only an entrepreneurial upstart would be able to come in and actually look at the market in a truly creative way like an apple and really come in and disrupt and so. I would argue that. The antitrust decision did and slow Microsoft down and did take their made them take their eye off the ball but even regardless. If that never happened. I don't think we'd be sitting here with everybody having windows mobile phones in their pocket. I just don't don't think they had the DNA to make that business transition. But Monica the bigger point he was making was that he believes that the answer to the company's having too much power is not to break them up but to unlock the data. That's inside of them basically interoperability between these services so that they can't lock users into what they're doing he's saying that that kind of sharing of data opening up of the platforms in a more transparent way to competitors is the way to address wrestler antitrust issues not breaking the company's up. I can see where from his perspective that seems like the most effective tool. I'm not one hundred percent convinced i. I wasn't covering Microsoft at this time so I don't know for sure that their situation is totally analogous to the current moment that we're in because I think what we're regulators are really concerned concerned with is the lack of competition in. Let's say social media where the biggest challengers to facebook instagram and WHATSAPP our facebook. Now and it doesn't really matter sadder if there's interoperability between those services because what is your other choice for a social media site that everyone is on but what if somebody could take on call at at that is archaic not going out and meeting somebody for coffee or going to the library and reading a book all right. We've got one more clip. You're going to enjoy this one interesting space. No your neighbor and Seattle like space. He you can have it that because malnutrition is so much more impactful. HIV's more impactful. Malaria is more impactful. Have you ever talked to Jessica. Oh sure Ilan like Mars Jeff artificial planets. I read a lot of science fiction but I guess not as much as they did. That's awesome. He was in such a Zinger mood. It was like one after the other. L. Quotable yes. I highly recommend the entire interview. He also addressed some tough issues such as his conversations with Jeffrey Epstein after Jeffrey Epstein had been convicted and it was interesting hearing gates his own explanation of that and frankly much more convincing than when his people put out a statement on his behalf. His main point was hey. I was doing everything I could to raise money for these causes and I made a mistake and he was very clear it was it was refreshing to see him talking about the mistakes that he made just in a very candid way and explaining why it happened. Not Making excuses and effectively apologizing. Yeah isn't that amazing. How unusual that is even though it puts you on the person side when somebody just says I messed up I take responsibility? It was my mistake. It's so different than equivocating and putting out excuses but we don't see a lot of that in leadership right now. The transformation of Bill Gates the last five years is WanNa China is a you talk about a masterclass. There's been a masterclass on the P. R. Marketing Positioning of Bill Gates over the last twenty. Five years it is that a change in him as well. I think that the reason that it's sparked by some smart people around him. I believe I believe it starts with him. In the fact did he has continued to grow he reads. He has Family starting with his late..

"But you know, folks, I wanna know update as possible, and and the answer on this one spend the same literally I met Dr more than my second day on the job Sounders, and he told me that Jordan was gonna go Sanford and. That they've never wavered from that. But it's never changed. And you know, so there isn't there's really nothing. You know, we talk all the time. Remorse works for us. So, you know, the conversations going I don't expect any change in Jordan status, and as to what's normal. What's unusual, whatever it's all Jordan. And again, hopefully, we can persuade them to that. The Sounders is started screaming, and hopefully, you know, maybe that comes I share Garth you. You've talked about long range goals in terms of building the player personnel in side the Sounders system, whether it'd be S two or the academy, and of course, up to the first team. What about the actual structure of where the where the team plays right now? I think everybody knows you guys got great crowds forty plus thousand on a regular basis. So there's no real hurry to leave century link field. But there has to be there have to be some sort of internal conversations about maybe someday building a home of your own. We just signed, and I'm probably swoop of detail. So it wasn't this all happened. Most before I got here, but send a long-term racist CenturyLink field. I think it's too maybe twenty thirty or something like that. But it's it's a long time know, so I think that you know, this issue film stadium. Just it's it's been settled it's resolved, and we're really grateful to begin such. It's in downtown Seattle. It's really acceptable. You know to our fans, we have a co culture that's going around that site with the March the maps and all the things that are fans do in and around the game. And you know, I think it's it'd be it'd be pretty whiskey to try to change some of that. And I know folks get up in arms and say, they don't like the food service, for example. But it's really for me. It's about the only negative part of, you know, playing essentially like thing, it's awesome place crowds. Also, it's a tough place to come into an opponent speak. To which in as part of our agreement. They're gonna replace that filter regularly. So I think we knew that stood as we can make it as well. So, you know, in this case, it is is and it's the best of for soccer, the United States, and you know, we're hoping to grow and and keep going tickets more skated or he's coming there.

The the depth that this goes in these communities. You're hear stories, you know, about you know, mascots Donald soft. But you know, a lot of its pocketful and happen. You know, where you get sent for that? I didn't have come to end is. The history going back to the seventy with the timbers of the Sounders when they weren't necessarily playing them watch. And all the the craziness that's kinda call back and forth. So and we hear those stories again, you get a better for the fans, and you can see how important it is to them. And and it's it's cool.

They draft Gonzalez, but they also go out and get even Jared Robbie Keane. And that's what's made them the best club in this league. It's the best of both worlds. You have those young talent.

So see that person wouldn't be eligible until July when the window opens. But we have and we have working on something. So we'll see if we can bring it to fruition in the short term. Beyond that, we would still have a roster spot open and international spots available. So we would be able to to sign easily sign one more player potentially. You know, we'd have some of the things that we want add more than that. But this Netflix on radar continued to try to improve our team. And you know, we played a lot of games short period of time here and Ford on Sunday in DC on the next Friday.
