What is a Blanket?
"Listener James Thomson. Referred to in a previous episode. At ask a question that he says is coming from under a blanket composed under a blanket, John. He says what is a blanket if I take a dubuffet from the bed into the living room, does it become a blanket is a blanket that has sleeves still a blanket. What about a giant blanket? Style Hoodie? Yes, I. Do have all of those things. So? What do you think about blankets I when I read this tweet? Sending it from under a blanket that I'm assuming that is A. A British ISM or a think so. Like. You're managing. These huddled entirely underneath it instead of having his head, stick out in his arms. Are In our country. You say you're under a blanket pictured. Oh, covering the entire body including your head like you're hiding. From right, but I'm assuming. Under completely under a blanket. Just tell who knows happening this out right so just a little a little fun there from across the pond, all right Blanket. This is is is another interesting one where we might have, it might be such a general term that can can encompass many different things, but I'll knock some out away the thing with the sleeves and the hood. Not a blanket. Sorry, I mean there's there's a reason we have selling names that you can call it a slang kit you can call. SNUGGIE! Yeah, not great, and it's more of a brand name. But like if you make clothing out of blanket, material does not make the clothing and blanket. Once you've got sleeves and ahead whole, not a blanket you've just made. A blanket, you can make a skirt out of a blanket. You can make a wedding dress out of a blanket, but if I make a three out of Terry cloth, it is not a towel. Yeah, Maria made made outfits for all the kids that have drapes, yeah! Yeah that one that was as you said that one away plying south off your bed, and bringing it into another room. I mean like I. Know You. People don't want to call it a blanket because that's like you know, it's a comforter quilt. Do all sorts of other words for it, but I'M GONNA. Say that all of those things that you put on top of a bed sheets are. Are Blankets of some kind and the other things are just making it more specific, so bring them into or out of the bedroom doesn't change the fact that they're categorically a kind of blanket now. That'd be to that to say. A quilt is not a blanket. How dare you also just from culture? I consider the thing that's laying on top of my bed. That's INNOVA. Cover a blanket. A comforter, but it's, but it's a blanket. It's a kind of blanket. It does a big flat thing that you put on top of yourself to be warm. That's not a sheet it's it's like it. It's a blanket maybe. If. You want to call that fancy I. Don't know why Americans have debate covers, but also. comforters and that are also blankets I. It's complicated, but I consider that a blanket and if I bring it into the living room. It's still blanket because I'm using it to blanket my body with an object. Therefore I keep warm and it's not a sheet because she'd are thin and blankets are thicker in some way whether they're quilted or have stuffing or just made a fuzzy material, remember the seventies blankets with the velvety ends on them. Remember those yes, that woolley material and they had two long strips of velvety stuff. We have a lot of we have a lot of. The those Fuzzy Fleece Fleece blankets that we have. More modern nineties things please bring stuff. I think the dispenses with all James's stuff. He can come out now. Let's get out from under their. It's getting stuffy in there, James, you need some fresh air. Get Out of the blanket

I Predate the Home Computer with James Thomson
"I'm excited for. Today's show got an interesting guest we do. It's going to be so much fun. I was looking back to the archives were planning guests and I was like wait. This person hasn't been on. We should fix this, and so we we are joined by. The friend of the Internet I think I'M GONNA. Give Him that title Mr James Thompson. Oh thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. I was I was looking at? It's like yeah has taken five hundred thirty eight episodes. Feed to motors. I'm here and I I feel now. I feel really bad I just want I've joking that sounds like I've got a massive ego. I do have a massive. Massive Ego, but the funny thing is. We've talked about a on the show. I mean back. This shows I did with Katie. We should talk about you. I don't know. Maybe we just felt like you were unaccessible. You were like one of those people at the top with like two or three assistance, and we'd never get through to you. I I. Think I could not be further from the truth. Well James is the developer of CALC. And You've done of stuff with apple, and as an infant developed over the years and James. I'm really looking forward to talking today about some of your experiences. All I am hopefully. I've got something interesting to say so I. Know You do I. Know You do the question is? Will we get you to say it? Look I left Apple Twenty years ago I'm I feel like the statue of limitations has passed on? So I like that, too. So James I feel like we've known each other a long time. We have a shared interest in. Technology history, we have a shared interest in Lego if a shared interest in. Nerdy things for nerdy things sake. I feel like we are very much. Cut from the same cloth, but we want our listeners to get to know you a little bit, so give us a little bit of your background. Maybe how you made it to be the full-time developer that you are now I mean I guess. This sort of wettest star is right to the beginning I mean. It's like I'm old enough that I said of predate the home computer and My first sort of real computer experiences were had an extra neighbor who was at American from California, and he had an apple two, and this would probably be very early eighties, probably eight, hundred, eighty-one or something, and I would go round there and I play on the Apple. Two and I play all these. There was a game that I took took me about ten years to work out what it actually was, but it was getting Kobe mosque the son. Of. Text Adventure. Go North pickup. Thing type and That was really sort of my fomative computer experience but then in eighty three. I got my own home computer to as a commodore sixty four, and in the UK through a two rivals, there was the commodore sixty four and the sinclair spectrum. There were really other computers, but they didn't count. It was those two, and I chose the commodore sixty four, not really knowing anything between British American or anything, but I chose a commodore sixty four, because it seemed to have a slightly better version of Pacman, I mean this was like at the height of fever, and I think actually made the right choice. Because the Commodore had really Nice Graphics and signed. I mean really nice graphics in Nineteen eighty-three, but it did have this thing co compunet. which was UK only sort of. Proprietary E. A. O. L. Like online service. This was around eight, thousand, five or something, and it had mud's which are multi multi user dungeon, so basically multiply at text adventures, and it had a software uploads and downloads. US Demo Seen Aranda and there were a lot of game developers that I'd become aware of it to me a while to work out. All these things are actually created by people and There was a one developer cold Jeff Minter. Who wrote Oldies Games in the UK and is still right two games and He's the reason basically the island code because I wanted to write games like he wrote and. That was kind of like the stop, and then things rolled over time, and it was like that our school was the first school in Scotland to get a computer like one computer a half, and this was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, three, and this was. An ACORN BBC. Model B computer another British specialty, and when it arrived in the school, the teachers had no idea what to do with it. Because none of them I think had used a computer, so they put a call to the students and said and this was. I would be probably What's the three? It'd be about ten of the time and they said you know. Does anyone have a computer news anything to do this thing nor four of us that perhaps hand said yes. We are clearly the experts here. So we were brought in and we ended up teaching the teachers high to use this computer, and then teaching some of the kids in the lower years before school started, we had these computer lessons that we ran and we actually ended up having an office like four of us. A nice waiting like school kids in and we had an office in the school. Would sit in there and we had learned to program. We would listen to music and we would play. Video Games and. That was pretty much the entirety of my lost primary school year. This primary seven I know his whole different to your your times, but it was basically the seventh year of my school.

"thomson" Discussed on Hanselminutes
"Doctor Lector see. This is where I put my foot in my mouth again. No because it's true though. Here's the thing when I we're not trying to shame anybody but I have to it. We all we all have been there right. I'm sure that you have projects right now. In get up you even product manager at good hub have projects that haven't got an action yet because you haven't got around to it you got like. Oh this hobbyist thing this kid I this thing I did with my kid. It's you know I should probably make a CIC. We're at a time now. I think in two thousand twenty where it's fair to say that if if you can build it then you should automate that build and you should have a formal CIC. You shouldn't have it building under you know on a computer under Anna's desk that's not how you release software today in and it's so easy there's no excuse so I would encourage people are listening to. The show did not take offense but rather to take a a sense of empowerment. And when you're done with this show go out and take that thing that you've never made build In a CIC the environment in to make it happen. I think that's exactly right. You my friend Damian says. The friends don't let friends right. Click deploy and amount of truth to that. I said the Damian's great even Brady. I've actually said if you have to open up to finder windows to deploy. You're probably doing it wrong. I shouldn't just drag and drop. Yeah so so How are the updates since launch or we talked about how there are thousands of items in the marketplace? Are People are using it? Are you running out of compute? How's that going people are using it? Thankfully we're we're not yet running out of compute. We're keeping up with demand It does require us to you know to to provision new machines once in a while but yeah I I'm really overwhelmed by By how people are using it. I'm really thrilled. It's it seems like people are using it mostly happy. Obviously you know there's some rough edges here and there and we get feedback and we're working on on taking those rough edges down you know since since launch we've added dependency an artifact cashing we've added the self hosted runner feature that. I think I maybe that happened like we announced that the day of Gi. Or if not shortly after we just added an API so that you can interact with it. More programmatic Louis. One of the things that would get me like super geeked like if I have to convince someone. Hey you should probably take that. Build an automated. That's not exciting right like if I see a friend Hey have you. Have you got your senior running out but then I show them the poll requests for my sites so I run this podcast and for example. This podcast is on on get hub. I'm one person but I have a global cdn. I have azure. I have the power of the cloud right. It looks like a million bucks because the cloud allows you to look like a million bucks. But I'm still only one development team but I show people might pull requests right now. I'm looking at my Hanson. It's poor requests and this is my most favorite thing. Maybe you can help me understand how this works. I have eleven Paul requests but it's a private repository and I'm one person who these coming from. I just clicked on one and dependable. Dot has seen that a new package got an update sucked out the release notes from the previous update up to like they did a diff- of the release knows it. And just dump them but they like have a bullet list of what's changed. The commits have been rolled up a change log and it went and built the thing and is telling me I could merge the request. It's like having a vendor that works for you but it's not a human isn't depend about wonderful. Yeah it's like having your own security team it's crazy and you can talk to it. The part that blew me away and this is where I get everyone converted is you can then tell it stuff you can say. Oh okay well Use this milestone and squash that and it will do it like a person but you don't have to pay them because it's bond right so yeah so the idea behind depend about is that it has this database of every. It's it's called A. Cva I think CV stands for common vulnerability and exposure right so every security bug on every package that's ever been released and it can look at your project and see what new packages you're using and figure out if there's a security vulnerability and if there is it knows what package version doesn't have that security vulnerability and it can update you. And so it'll open that PLO request automatically and I think that is really really cool. But here's another example of why I think having your source code and your dependable integrated with actions is a great thing. Because now you're gonNA run a build every time you're you're dependent opens request right and that build will hopefully pass if dependab- did a good job and I usually see that it does right every time but depend about Opel request for me. I get a green build all my tests pass and so I actually have a pretty high degree of confidence that things are going to work. What if get actions could then just merge that floor request it knows who opened the floor quest trusts depend about it knows that the tests passed so I actually have a workflow set up to go ahead and auto merge anything that depend bought. If we're about regressions I I'm pretty comfortable with my test suite. Oh my goodness comfortable. That's the thing right and that's a that's so interesting because I'm like I don't know but at the same time you do and you can try it and if it doesn't work for you you can. You can not do it but that would be an to have that level of tests covers to have that sense of confidence if you think about how people who are listening might feel about their code. We've all had that code base that we are afraid of like. I don't want his it off. I want to anger the code. Right I think it works. Don't anger it right. And you're saying that you literally have this putting things into production because you trust it. I'll aging opening staging okay. We'll get pretty. That's pretty close. That's pretty good. I'm just GonNa Start merging these things in just willy. Nilly right now because why not what could go wrong with podcast. Stop abruptly go wrong. I've got pretty. I get about seventy one percent two percent code coverage so I don't okay but I love that So that you said there's the security aspect of things but then there's also whether or not depend about just notices that a minor releases happened you can tell it like. Oh this thing. This thing. When it wasn't a security update it was just a change right. It manages all dependencies. Not just security. That's true I Yeah I mostly think about it from independents From a security point of you but you're absolutely right it can tell you anytime something changes so that's one example of bought what other botts could. I have creeping amount my code that make me look like more than one person. So one bothered. I've seen used periodically as something like Cla bought where an open source project might have a C. L. A. Contributor license agreement and so somebody who opens a PLO request. Might need to. Actually you know. Sign some piece of legalese sort of paperwork saying that they assign their rights for example or that they accept all the terms that an open source project has. And you don't want to deal with that as an open source maintained. I certainly don't like I got enough on my plate when it comes to dealing with the project I try to write code. I try to get releases out the door those sorts of things. I don't want to be like a lawyer in my spare time as well so like you can have a bought set up. That will see any time. Somebody opens a pull request if they're a new contributor if they've never signed a Cla the CLA can actually pop in and say. Hey Go to this. You know I don't know Docu sign. Url maybe a some other link you know however you have it. Set up for your For your project and its governance it can enforce that I think the dot net foundation. This is where I've seen that the most is they've got one called Dot net bought. That does this and I think other things too. And it's you should see its contribution graph that get hub block. That calendar is just green all across that as a as a glorious contribution graph that that pot has something to be said for just really well run. Well well bonded I guess. Is that their word open source projects. One of my favourite open source project should check out just because they have a toy called an octo print. It's a web interface for your three D. printed printer. Oh and It is the most organized most thoughtful. Most well run project that I have seen in a long time. It's run by To pronounce her name is chairman. She's been on the podcast. Gina Hausa And basically she's got bots and issue managers and all kinds of tagging. And when you go to her issues there's You know if you if you if you're just a person who just rolls in with a complaint like it'll go and say the sorry. There's not enough information here like it could be a bug but she'll market has status awaiting information potential bug. But if you don't fill out the form right it's basically like the soup Nazi and I mean that in the nicest possible way like welcome at a new issue. Oh you didn't fill out the information. We will wait for you to fill out the information and then we will close the thing when when you are you know unless you give us what you need to get. You can organize an automate things so that it's a garden. It's almost like animal crossing you. Make your space your space and get hub then becomes your nesting ground for all the things you can make a healthy community with a series of actions and bots and and management. It's just wonderful. I think that's great. I think that for new contributors coming in and actually having an expectation and understanding what the process is really really valuable. That's actually probably a place where I fall down as a main -tainer is not you know maybe living up to that standard so As we get towards the end here what is coming next for our actions on good hub. So the big thing that the team is working on. Now that we're really excited about is bringing actions to get hub enterprise server so when we launched actions we g eight it last November and it was available in get up dot com and in you know the other enterprise in our cloud hosted version but not everybody wants a cloud hosted you know place for for their code. Even in twenty twenty a lot of people still want to have their their source code their issues. Everything within their data center in behind their firewall. And so get up. Enterprise Server. Is that product? It's get hub behind your firewall. And so we're bringing actions into that so you'll be able to spin up compute within your data center and talk to your private enterprise server instance and so. That's that's really the the thing that we're really focused on right now. So get up actions and get a packages as well. We're going to be moving into into G. H. E. S. The other thing that we're looking at is some more organization level workflows so right now. You build actions in a repository. What if you wanted actions especially like the automation type of actions For an organization instead of just a single repository. So that's that's another thing that we're taking a look at right now. Very cool and people can go into course google out there for with being as I like to say. Forget hub actions Get hub packages and wander around the get hub marketplace and you can get into devops in probably in your lunch hour and show your boss. You can get stuff building very very quickly. Yeah absolutely fantastic. I've been talking with Edward. Thomson from get hub. This has been another episode of Hansel minutes. And we'll see you again next week. Burn Burn..
The Churchill Fire

"Malcom gladwin is a stone cold genius who loves A grade sports argument. I went onto bill. Simmons podcast and I had this totally ludicrous thing that I want to talk about. Which was I was like? Could a basketball team made up of Nigerians? An all time basketball team made up of Nigerians be the greatest basketball time and then I ended it. I amended until as I said all right I have to corollaries one is. I'm going to add west Indians because almost Indians not all mostly I'm Jamaican. Where am I what am I people from? We're from originally like I'm Ibo right most Jamaicans cable so I add the Caribbean and then I said and just refund. That's also add the rest of Southern Africa and then I construct the students. Tony Ridiculous Caribbean so busy. I say out can Africa and the Caribbean put together an all time team. It's better than an african-american team a euro team at a white American team. It's the third one. Maybe not. The answer is yes. We don't have time to do this but I will convince you. I can't convince you to Africa and the Caribbean in basketball. All Time team and also your co you qualify by or Nigeria. Will I started? I start with all of ethnic did not all? I'm only adding. I added Southern Africa. 'cause I WANNA have Steve Nash and Joel Embiid on my team. Wade Steve Nash. Born in Johannesburg. He's Canadian. No my rule is that you. Are you qualify? Virtue of your parents. Place a birth. So get all of Steve. Nash Who Play Thompson. Really? He's Bamyan are are are taking. Tim. Duncan Tim Duncan Hang Hau Kim Elijah Akeem Joel Embiid Yoenis Clay Andre iggy Dow Victor Depot Drink Igwe Dolla. Where's he from Nigeria okay? He's full on your deal and Steve. Nash I got a back court of Nash and Thomson. I got a frontcourt of Dunkin embiid. Jaanus Patrick Ewing forward a okay. Right right right right from the islands. This really is in the island. This team is insane when Patrick's coming off the bench. But how just doesn't matter but Kim Jaanus and but sure but but the other team has Lebron Kobe. Japan Michael I know. Just for starters and Steph curry just restarting Potanin Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell. Just just try go ahead. That's the African American teachers. Try Playing Lebron Jordan. Notice what we doing that thing ooh together. Thomas can't come in and Magic Johnson coming in. Can I read this out rushing your your appetite? Engineer Crushes Team Sport Play. You cannot Jordan Jordan and abroad and Kobe on the court at the same time out of your mind. You have all centers you have one forward you have you have guards and a bunch of centers. You got a problem with that because the modern game nobody in the known you already. Janis on Lebron an WHO's covering Jordan who's covering stats got covering step. I got clay and Andrea Diallo. Who in their day or two of the greatest lockdown defenders of the last twenty five years in the NBA? I got a clay and national or two of the pure as shooters and I have argued with the greatest defensive front court in the history of basketball. I Have Yoenis Hekim Akeem Patrick embiid. I mean I have wilt Bill Russell Shack. It's close by. Queen is not close if I had if I was restricted to white Americans. Then maybe may point so I do it as long ludicrous. It's ludicrous ludicrous. And you're right I'm wrong but so what is it that there are people took offense. How on Earth? What is they were like? Oh you know you Kim like first of all all the things to get worked up about in two thousand eighteen in America about race. This is the thing you have said about
Floppies: The Disks that Changed the World
"Jordan Montana is a pack rat. He's the creator of games like karate and the Prince of Persia and he meticulously saved everything along the way journals sketches and storyboards all of it so it came as a bit of a shock to him when he couldn't find something he'd saved and that something was a pretty big deal back in two thousand two magner was working on Prince of Persia the sands of time. The programmers wanted to add the classic version of the game to their playstation two update as an Easter Egg. So they asked him for the original source code but when magner looked in his archives he couldn't find it. He searched everywhere the source code that he'd written on his old apple to the cody was positive. He saved had vanished fast forward. Ten years mechanisms. Dad is cleaning house and buried at the back of a closet is a ratty looking shoebox holding a bunch of dusty old three and half inch floppy disks one is labeled Prince of Persia Source Code Copyright Nineteen eighty-nine and in brackets in all caps. The word original the long lost code found at last it had sat in that box for a quarter century before being unearthed like some archaeological discovery. But this was two thousand twelve. How would he be able to get it off? Those old discs and with the data still be intact. Was it in fact too late to save his work saving our work these days? It often happens. Automatically with programs regularly pushing stuff into the cloud. We don't worry about manually savings anymore. In fact a whole new generation doesn't even know what that save icon represents side note. It is not a vending machine but for many decades saving storing and transferring. Our data had to be done using some physical media when the personal computing revolution took off which we heard about in our last episode on the Altar Eight hundred. There was one piece of technology that became synonymous with saving the floppy disk. It seems so simple. Now but floppies change the course of our history because they helped turn microcomputers into personal computers. I'm surrounded Barak and this is command. Line Heroes Unoriginal podcast from that HAP. Let's put a pin in Jordan Lechner's floppy disk discovery for a moment. Welcome back to it first. Though I want to learn how the floppy disk was born in the first place and how it became such a crucial part of the TECH WORLD FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS. Our first stop eighteen ninety. Before electronic computers existed there were electrical mechanical computing devices and the method forgetting data in and out of them was through punchcards the size of a dollar bill when electrons computers came along in the fifties. Ibm standardized those punch cards with eighty and twelve roads. A punched hole would form one type of character. No whole meant another for a long while. Those Punch cards were the main method for data input but handling hundreds of cards for bigger. More complex programs was hugely cumbersome. There had to be a better way to save and transfer information next up paper tape which came along in the nineteen fifties to hear how paper tape played a central role in the origin of personal computing. Listen to our last episode. Paper tape had the same punched hole method of reading data as punch cards. Because it's all one tape. No one had to worry about getting cards mixed up it could carry more. Data was much faster to us but as many computers grew in capacity they needed more and more tape to store programs like punch cards. Paper tape eventually met its limit. Enter MAGNETIC TAPE. The key ingredient was mylar a tough flexible material coated with magnetic oxide to make the tape recordable nine tracks could store up to one hundred seventy five megabytes per tape. That was a big deal in fifties and sixties magnetic tape drives of ten and a half inch. Wheels became standard issue for businesses. But the problem take is that it's great for moving large chunks date of one place to another. It's really hard to search on them to find anything in particular when we would install software on our mini computers in mainframes using tate. But it really wasn't that good for anything small and portable or if we wanted to do anything interactive on our with our data that Stephen Vaughan Nichols contributing editor at CBS interactive sure. Magnetic tape could store a lot more data. He was too big and swallow. It was only practical for the mainframe world really again. There had to be a better way and that better way came along in Nineteen fifty-six when launched its very first decide drive the IBM three fifty disk storage unit. It was a component of the three or five ramic mainframe computer a machine that filled an entire room. Here's Dave Bennett. A former IBM disk and storage product engineer. There was storage in core memory. In fact the disk storage device of which ramic was the first was a storage device that permitted random access to give on record as opposed to a tape. Drive interesting thing. That disk drive. Almost didn't see the light of day because it threatened. Ibm's punch-card business but the project was eventually approved. Problem was the drive contained. Discs made of solid metal ramic literally. Wait a ton it had to be moved with forklifts and transport it by large cargo. Not the most convenient storage method but out of that came a better solution of a floppy disk was originally developed for new need and the reason was that there was an intermediate kind of storage originally. There was a computer code and then there was the computer memory. The working memory but with system three sixty there was a new class of memory in between which they called firmware and in system three sixty there was unique technology for the firmware in various forms it was either a special kind of punched card or there was a thing called. Transformer read only storage but the new need was the desire to go from these technologies two semi conductor technology in the days when semiconductor technology was volatile. That means that the memory in semiconductors went away when the power was removed so there had to be a way of recharging bringing the program back into that memory when the power was restored for loading what was called a micro program or that intermediate memory and the need for such a device is what caused the development of the floppy disk dryer so in nineteen sixty seven. A small team of engineers led by David. Noble started developing an inexpensive system for loading those micro-programmes into mainframe computers. The code name for their project was Minna. Noble personally went through all the things that he could think of including various forms of punched cards including use of tape cassettes. And I don't know what else he went through but he hit on the idea of using an inexpensive form of this based on a flexible disc very inexpensive read only mechanism. The Minnow team wanted to be able to mail their micro-programme to various locations. That needed to load it. So the product for sending that program around had to be durable enough to fly through the mail without having its data damaged some kind of casing now what they actually had to do. In order to make it maleable was they decided to put it in a plastic container that was fairly rigid and they would actually read and write the disk while. I was inside of this plastic container like an envelope of plastic envelope. And when you have a coating on a disk and a rigid head you're going to have where and when you have where you have where particles and the problem they had was that as the were particles built up it's kind of caused an avalanche effect. The particles would act as additional abrasive. And then pretty soon with the particles being loose in there. You're where the recording track out and didn't work anymore. So a really smart guy that was on that program men name. Her Thomson came up with a plan that was based on a household dusting fabric that three m soul to housewives for dusting their furniture and he put a sheet of that in there between the envelope and the disk and that material picked up the were particles and they embedded themselves in that fabric and prevented the avalanche effect and really saved the
Licence plates, education fights and other dispatches from Doug Ford's Ontario
"This is one of those bizarre little government. Screw that probably happened on some level to every single government anywhere on the political spectrum is an embarrassing sure. But it's also not a big problem is screwed something up you've vixen. You apologize annual move on. It's the kind of screw up that only sticks around because it says something about the bigger picture and it says something when you refuse to acknowledge that and you won't answer questions as you guys. The Media WanNa stick in this little downtown Toronto bumble and start worrying about little things in this respect from them in my opinion first nations right today worse. So welcome to year. Two of Doug Ford's Ontario where alongside the big issues like teacher strikes autism funding and pandemic preparation. We also have license plates. But you can't read and look the plates will be fixed. It'll be fine but this could have been a one day story and instead it's a three week story. Because the first time the issue was raised we got us. We have worked with our key. Stakeholders and our plates are readable. And that right there is how a small story becomes a big one. And that's why it's worth taking a look at how it happened. In a look at the bigger picture and Ontario rating and discussing the government. It's trying to balance a of spinning plates. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big store. Cynthia Mulligan is the Queen's Park reporter at City News in frequent guests. During at least this administration I Cynthia Jordan. Why don't you tell me as we sit here today? What is the Ontario government dealing with? Like what issues are kind of swirling around them. Well license plates are a huge one. I mean license plates have just turned into a boondoggle fiasco nightmare for this government and it it should have been such a benign thing you know. The old license plates were peeling. The contract was up and they wanted to sort of put their mark on the province so for people outside of Ontario who Like to enjoy a laugh at Toronto's and Ontario's expense told me about the license plates like start from the beginning. Why does Ontario have new license plates? And what are they well early on in his tenure doug four decided he was going to rebrand. Ontario in his vision license plates. Were one of the main things. And he redid the slogan. That sounded like you know a Doug Ford campaign slogan and he did them in colors that are known to be more conservative blue colors and they were instantly dubbed Vanity plates by the end EP and partisan plates and they were released early February and it instantly turned into a gong. Show because a sergeant from Kingston a police officer took a photo of a license plate and said Oh my God. Didn't anybody research these plates. Put IT OUT ON. Twitter went viral. Because you couldn't read them when the light is Sean on them in the dark and it became a joke but it also became a how not to handle a crisis lesson for government. Explain what happened in the days following because again government screw up right Lebanon's highland and this could have been dealt with and done in a day. Maybe two days on the news cycle except the way they handled it. It then became a much bigger story so Lisa Thompson. Who was the former Education Minister? And you know I hate to say it she. She's she's really struggled in front of the media particularly in scrums she was the one who infamously said. Let's raise class sizes because it will make kids more resilient and you know would fall apart in scrums under the intensity and listen. Scrums are not easy to Queens Burke. They're really not so my hat's off to anybody who can manage an intense scrum. She has not mastered that skill so she stands up in the legislature. Somebody brings it up the MVP brings it up first day back and it's don't forget it's the first day back after the Christmas break and instead of coming back and I think everybody was expecting you know five weeks off six weeks off. They're coming back. It's going to be nice and calm. And he's talked to you in in late. Twenty nineteen about the new calm and friendly Pc government yes. They were trying to rebrand themselves. They have a new chief of staff after Dean French left under that scandal the patronage scandal and they were really trying to rebrand themselves and you would see. Doug Ford and even when he got questions at the time Before Christmas he was very calm and he handle them very well and he didn't Bristle and he didn't get angry and I think that they were just expecting you. Know SORT OF WE'RE GONNA start up this new session and we're going to carry on with that tone and Kabu license plates blow up in their face. Lisa Thomson gets up. The minister in charge gets up and denies. There's a problem when there's so clearly is a problem and basically says we've done a ton of research no problem and then it gets worse because then she does a scrum with the media calls says that they had to replace the old liberal license plates. The previous license plates were created some forty years ago under conservative. Premier Bill Davis so it just it just got worse and worse and worse and they wouldn't acknowledge there was a problem that then became a much bigger story than it had to finally the next day or so. They're like yeah. Ok well we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA look into this and they were very begrudging about it but it created a bigger problem than what what they should have had. And what really is the problem with these license plates. I mean in the grand scheme of things. It's yes it's a mess up. It's a big flood whether it's three. M's fault or the government's fault will never know because now there's a nondisclosure agreement but what it does is add to the pile of mistakes and backtracks at this government has had to do and it's it's becoming ingrained in the public consciousness because every time they look at a license plate they're Gonna. Think. Oh Yeah. Those are the license. Plates of the government messed up on top of the Autism. File on top of the gas pump stickers. That wouldn't stick on top of like I could go on and on and on what's happening at Queens Park right now just in terms of scandal or issue after issue and what's it like down there because it it seems like it's a bit chaotic from the outside so I had somebody from inside the government high up in the government. Come to my office recently. And they said how do you think we're doing and I said I think you're trying really hard to reset the channel and be different than your first eighteen months in office and I think your past mistakes. Keep coming to bite you. And she looked at me and went That's what's going on. How is Doug Ford navigating? All this this week he gave his first press conference in a while. Judy address it well. He was doing an announcement about a road to the ring of fire that He he championed as a historic agreement. In it's going to bring prosperity to first nations in northern Ontario. I mean it's really a a very preliminary announcement in it's basically an announcement that we're going to try and do this it. Put them in front of people. It also put them in a positive place in terms of indigenous affairs which you know we've been grappling with as a as a nation the last weeks so he wanted this positive announcement. The problem was the whole thing was a disaster from the get-go I mean it's at the Metro. Toronto Convention Center in the bowels like several floors down at a trade convention. It's packed and where they've set up this announcement they don't have enough room and the audio is terrible and the cameras are on a riser looking down at the premier and two chiefs and there's a ton of people from the public who WanNa Watch and they can't because they can't see the media can't see and the audios terrible and nobody can hear a darn thing. It was terrible optic to begin with. I think in watching him because he came when he arrived he was. He seemed in a really good mood. He was smiling. I think from his vantage point. He could see how things were going wrong. I mean one chief was standing at the microphone talking. You couldn't hear a word. He was saying and that had to have been frustrating for him so I think when the questions started and the first couple weren't even about his announcement about about something entirely different which is not unusual when we haven't seen him for five weeks so he has a lot on his plate and he wanted to change the channel with this historic announcement as he

Thank you know about every wife doing our best right. Thank you lovely a little. Thank you a war is a bit more background about yourself. And what attracted you pod? Kika love to yes so I look up any recruitment variety by his hands on recruiter than spend a considerable chunk of my time what he gets said so when I started sakes are was basically prospecting customers who had ads in the newspaper trying to convince them that online mafia better alternative Full themselves. How does that is. That was the role that myself. Much engage many years at sage that our family on its own must like have a bigger voice in the small business and I'm saying his got lots of investments and one of them was in a comical sidekick up and I met with the fans that saw Kiko really locked while doing really wanted to be a part of. I guess it was something different to be out of that disruption again and I really wanted to gain in Wahine. You can cope. Would it be on a cult? The GIG ECONOMY. The contingent sort of marketplace are really wanting to play pop. Exile could say. Oh my mom. It's that's not everyone but it's certainly. A portion of the industry was Directions are you had really good appeals to me and then also working for a business once doing so double digit growth. Every year is exciting and challenging Tom Yet double digit growth is is defining challenge for for a lot of businesses out there. But you're not to be part of the company that is doing. It must be really exciting time for you in that role absolutely in our way. Look with GONNA plan. We do give it Saturday. We're attacking you markets are. Jim would fondness as Wellington's we spent a lot of Thomson of evangelizing As well in gems of some customers ready for new Welton some people really happy with. All worlds are are easy. He's one of those ones way. You 'cause you directing you also have pretty fee skating's hymns of Alvin with encouraging over a lot of noise but in terms of so much like it's not forever. It's just now so in terms of that. Adults gives me extreme comfort and confidence around. You know what we're building these new world. How do you? How do you navigate that difference between new welding all thinking especially I guess Laka powerful mud sidekick away you'll sort of often interacting with the new polls coming in but also more established organizations highest hotcakes? How do you navigate that up at different question in terms of we haven't now that sort of all the time but I'm we're lucky enough to have the businesses bank to seven years? So we're lucky. Enough to have sort of seventies seventies of John to understand what the market's doing what the markets for incident is. A lot of. It is just hit. A lot of it is just a getting a salon at literally. Lots of teaching Matsen conversation lots of necessarily networking but two slots to Jewish enough win only pretty good at sort of finding out who has inch And then who may be interested and a lot of it comes down to customer Yet do you not someone that does not generally jobs agency they quite interested in how technology according platform that likes the against that lock the disability Who'S GOING TO BE TUNING UP BEFORE? They before they get their WanNa have control either whom they are even for not Wake or two months summit. I Really WanNa know what they've done with. It worked out platform for ball's middle that information star way. Do have to do a bit of prospecting by the I guess. The good news is as we continue to grab us as it before that awareness pace isn't quite what it was when John Sake in Australia. Explain the I'm what year. Why NOT US at Man? Obey abyss investments of rhythm going round. The must be some similar strands of them.

Absolutely to the honest you'll series. Gigs folks businesses empty different. Peaches do Truth Lots of parallels between by a small business. That's really focused. That also is really clear on what we do will do. And I think that's what really helps sip rideout good businesses from gripe businesses.

Your is having focused Tom. Tom Sinai with sometimes sticking to the core of what we do. Helps you certainly Pasta? And so much more. Clark was wife so they definitely lots of parallels between Donkey diamond to tell me. If you agree with this particularly in the talent who would talk about future work there is so much nuance between the different styles and taught said a lot of people just overlook like Bay throw everything into recruitment or everything into Gig Echo like. They just like to put things in buckets. The more things come out there sorry much more nuance and much more. Nisha I guess at least different capabilities that are coming out that the hottest is educating people on why that's different
Jake Goldenfein on Google Scholar
"Our guest today is Jack Golden Fine. He's a post doctoral fellow slow at the digital life initiative and he's originally from Melbourne Australia. He's research looks law in Computational Society including including the impact of platforms on user behavior. He's most recent piece of research. Looks at Google scholar. A relatively new free web search engine that indexes scholarly work in which has quickly become central to academic life just like other Google services have in other disciplines. I sat down with him just before the holidays and I began by asking him to explain what Google scholar is for the non scholars among us. And why it's become so important Horton. In recent years Google Scola emerged in two thousand and full when it was first launched it was just an academic search. Such engines are just like Google that ordinary such engine accepted return. Scholarly results how it defines something as scholarly has always been a little a bit vague. And maybe we'll talk more about why the Vagary of that is a bit problematic but the idea was it would return results that were relevant for scholars. Looking King Faculty make work since then. It's had a few more features added that perhaps beyond set actually more important or have had a bigger effect on the academic field in two thousand and six you able to stop saying citation counts associated with particular scholarly documents and then three years later. Two two thousand eleven google Google scholar launched sort of citation platform and what they did was give each racer. A profile like scholar profile filed outlined oleo publications and the citation counts of those publications calculations of academic quality or the quality of eraser. Sure premised on the amount of citations their publications getting over particular number of us. Silly amount the number of times other researchers will quote from your research search in their own research. Exactly it's the number of times that An article a document that you ride is referred to by other researches. It's pretty new right. You said it it started in two thousand and four so less than I mean a little over ten years. How how big is it now in the field? It do every researchers look at it when they're working on a new topic or so I would say. Almost every researcher would be familiar with it when Dougal scholars such sort of emerged on the sane librarians. This who Training young racers will always telling them be very wary of this because we sort of don't understand how it works as well as we understand. How other academic search search engines wet? It's also interesting. Because most academic search engines are quite disciplinary specific and they all they return results to a particular the corpus or repertoire of journals whereas Google scholar is disciplined agnostic a returns results across disciplines irritations results from academic journals but also other kinds of publications and whereas in traditional academic search engines. You have quite a lot of control over. What what you're searching for in Google scholar you have relatively limited control you can you can constrain the dates? But that's kind of more or less it. So it's always occupied had a bit of a funny position in research toolkit but it's increasingly a used because we're getting a lot more sort of disciplinary environments where people are interested in finding out information outside of their discipline and so google scholar becomes sort of fest port of coal in that kind of instance. But the thing that we're finding is maybe the big use of Google scholar is it's it's citation counting function it's bibliometric function on because what Google Scuola represents his really the easiest way to say. How many citations a particular research has received how come like what? Where did you get those metrics before? and and why were they less easy to find. People who are metrics have been around for a long time in the fifties those information scientists named using Garfield field. Who developed this process of citation analysis? Way You could effectively automate the organization. That is the indexing of scholarly work Iraq by its references so libraries with struggling with how to organize exploding amount of scientific and scholarly literature. And they will. Also you're thinking about how to to use computers to do that. The problem with during that is the sort of need to figure out a way to define the subject matter of of a publication in a way that a computer can understand and Eugene Garfield came up with a really clever way of doing that which is to look at references. Organiz it by the references rather than the actual actual content. This idea was really successful. It was really useful research tool but it also became clear quite early on that counting. Citations could give you a really Sort of rough guide to the quality of work because it gave you a measure of its reception in the field. It didn't tell you how people were trading but a told you people were rating in had some some sort of visibility. So through the sixties and seventies this eventually turned into a commercial product and in the nineties that was purchased by Thomson Reuters Webb of science over the last couple of decades has been probably the primary tool to get metric information but it's number one. The product was General Impact Factor in journal impact factor measured the number of citations to articles in particular journal. Over set a number of years. This citation analysis was used primarily for evaluating the quality of channels rather than the quality of individual researches now individual researchers started added to organize their own sort of scholarly prestige around the prestigious journal. Yeah so if you publish a nature medicine for example for a doctor it's not the same mm-hmm as in a local journal. That might be great but less has left citations nationally. Exactly so what we see during the seventies eighties nineties his citation starting to do lots of interesting things. We started to see journals effectively set their price according to the number of citations that were getting individual scholars. Who now were in this more competitive scully? Well because you know in the second half of the twentieth century the number of scholars in Christ raced dramatically along with massive increases in funding to. There's a lot more research is. There's a lot more research. Things are getting more competitive. The Prestige of your journal Becomes go away to sort of define your position in a market
Lowe: How two contenders went all-in at the trade deadline
"If we look at the actual deals with the contenders the Miami Heat and the and the clippers in terms of contenders moves. Yes Yup move forward at the deadline going forward. I think you see the Minnesota Timberwolves have made a big move forward. I'm not really sure. What the Cleveland Cavaliers have done? They made a big Zach. Lowe's point about the cavs. Good one at that price. Why aren't you making that deal? WAS CLEVELAND LIKE YOU HAVE A. You have a chance at a twenty six year old all-star to you know you have three months to answer to young team I think is really gonNA develop here in the next couple of days is unless there's a last minute deal that will just tell us about and you can use that again Thomson was not traded. That's right there was like six centers traded over this last three days. Tristan Thompson was not one of them. There has been a belief in the League and frankly his agent has been cleared. Paul's been clear. That Tristan is interested in taking a buyout. Because if you take AK- buyout even if he doesn't plan on being with the cavs you lose your bird rights and you can't be executed assigning trait but considering where they are now we're android is going to be their starting center. He has to play a a lot of minutes going down. The Stretch Tristan is not gonNA play not going to be able to improve his value. I think the chances of Tristan Thompson buyout have increased dramatically. That means if you're a fan of the Boston Celtics your ears perk way up right now. The Boston Celtics would be major in the market for such a good fit there. Right absolutely and the clippers who still have believe it or not. The clippers could could still use a center. I think if he becomes available over the clippers looking for more shooting at that position he could come there. But if you're a Boston Celtics Fan right now. Even though your team didn't do anything you are really picking a very close eye on Tristan Thompson. Because Tristan Thompson goes to the Celtics that could be the type of move that changes the balance of the Power Easter. Well first of all to finish up on the cavs. I would say this that they have had a hard time getting the rest of the League to think that Kevin Love worth what they think Kevin love this and they have been at Har. It's been they haven't been able to make a deal because of that. Well if you got Andre Drummond not for free but for a very small price. Maybe you let Kevin love go for a lower price than you thought you were going to. Maybe that's what it's about it's about this Andre Drummond and has a twenty eight million dollar player option which he may or may not pick up. I would advise him to pick it up. The CAVS are looking at like we did about twenty million cap room they. I don't think they could use that. Twenty million on the player better than Andre Drummond. So in a way this was a free agent. Move whether or not he keeps. He picks up the Optional Sarah. So let's move on from Andre Drummond. I WANNA get to Paul Paul. Can you go directly into your camera. Here and make a pitch to Tristan Johnson to talk to buy outs or the one player that can put the Boston Celtics Celtics over the top taking a couple extra less. Millions is work. But you don't know the answer is you. Don't take any money. They make the cavs by you out. Because they've they've they've just traded for your replacement but then you go sign and get more of my life could be part of a of another friend and these France table talk need a physical presence. A veteran leader champion.

"We don't know if Tom Thomson had a formal set of ideas about Canada and its art but Lauren Harris sure did and there's evidence on film of his lack of interest in painting a populated Land Art Historian historian Peter Larisa describes an Arctic expedition undertaken by Harris to the Arctic hoping to be inspired you know but what he found in the landscape of north was a wall he could not get through this wall is a wall always get beyond it the sketches and all that were done you know wally was on the vote and Harris had movie camera with them. You gotta you got came into some of the places with ship dog. The native people just poured onto the ship. It was all over full of people but not one of them occurs in the Harris. Pay Any of the Harris paintings the Artie there is one painting where he has a hot hot or something. That's the native people we live in because that's close as he got. He didn't paint paint the person's tall. Even though they were part of what he filmed they work part of what it was interested in painting at all. I have no doubt that Thomson would find his way into whatever nook or cranny could to find a good vista to paint or good little seen to paint Taj along little rapids on the Barron River here. We're up way up above the rapids but I can see how if you had a painting box walks and real predilection for a particular kind of beauty you you might figure a way to clamber down in there and set yourself up to capture a beautiful scene like the one. I'm looking down upon right now. From about twenty feet beat up maybe thirty feet.

"Criticized way back in the seventies by another jesuit about my spirituality of modernism and and the thing that popped into my head before a new vegetables modernise word was authenticity. I'd like this painting because it has authenticity to it and I like myself myself because I'm seeking authenticity. That was something like that happened at that moment way back then somebody who's criticizing big for my attitudes attitudes which were wanted to be free from his attitudes against a lot of Control Alabama's going on authenticity yes. That's what I'm attracted attracted to. That's what I WANNA see and how I want to live but it's elusive it must be sought out often at a cost to ourselves as individuals and collectively as a society as a nation what we've received from from these generations artists enough in today makes us appreciate the moment but at the same time gotta be careful what what was that moment really about and for indigenous peoples. It was a scary time. It was it was the most brutal time you know as Tom. Thomson was unwittingly forging Canadian. Myth the theft of lands and destruction of indigenous families was in full swing. Gerald McMaster teaches indigenous visual culture and curatorial practice at Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto Hello and is a member of CICA first nation so I think that kind of narrative of this period when we think of this moment moment in time I will war that's what was going on and it was very brutal. The beginning of residential schools all that what we know today but sometimes it's clouded in in other narratives and I think we just have to be wary that indeed there are other narratives that are going outplay during this time. Gerald and I are hunkered down onto wooden chairs at the University of Toronto Arts Center and there's the third party with US perched on an easel. It's a dazzling Tom. Thomson Canvas called the pointers from his last winter his broken brush a strokes and use of color absolutely tickled the optic nerve you can join us and have a look at CBC dot ca slash ideas as s we talk our eyes wander over to the painting and rest on the giant hill the Kaleidoscopic Lake the mottled clouds on parade or the tiny figures on the water. I think the first thing that I noticed in this work was was that we're the people because quite often whether i Thompson or the later group seven the landscape was devoid of folks folks indigenous non-indigenous or even animals soon so it was a different kind of qualitative view of the landscape okay because it wasn't all inclusive it wasn't that all my relations kind of approach would rather someone who's keenly interested. Perhaps in the the forms forms the colors in the land and in the sky as well. I should say the land the sky the land water all of that combined together in this really interesting whole so third three boats these pointers I if you will there are used primarily by loggers so there's they're full of men rowing in one direction and it appears. There's a this kind of not a raft but it's a fairy of some kind ferrying a team of horses we pointed in the opposite direction and on the fair are you can see this one man in the orange shirt just leaning there you know there's this very simple the way that he the Angler proposed that he's got these. It's it's not stiff in the waters moving quite quickly like this and dazzling in that light and you can see these men just pulling their boats and it's hard to say where these men. Manohar there could be indigenous and non-indigenous together. You know they're loggers. They're extracting from the land so you actually I'm glad how'd you pointed at the guy in the orange because the first guy I thought when I saw it in person the first time was the felony yellow here and I've just noticed today that he's got his own little reflection yeah. He's got his own little chip. There doesn't remarkable but the landscape as as this professor Tim Inglewood suggest landscape and land or two different things land land has a sense of weight and space. You know you can't the way it is so vast whereas landscape starts to differentiate itself in the qualitative nece that that it has so so when you think think of Thomson and others going into the northern part of Ontario there were seeing obviously from the western tradition of landscape painting from I'm from that just the view of representing indigenous peoples on the other hand probably would see it but rather vastly different and that's the kind of display I try I to present when I was at the Kerio when we redid the Canadian galleries in two thousand and eight to show to juxtapose Thomson's Thompsons West Win along the couple bags that were done by an Nabi individuals back in the Eighteenth Century Truth.

"In two thousand seventeen eighteen the McMichael Canadian collection brought wayland and Thompson face to face on its gallery walls and in beautiful and provocative book the myths entails we value most the ones we put I end up being the ones that purport to tell the story to the rest of the world to every neophyte who comes under the spell of Tom Thomson while it may require more effort. It's good to keep the true breadth and depth of the Tom Thomson mythos else in mind and to examine it with a discerning heart. It's a mythos that drives auction prices into the stratosphere which really means the the paintings are priceless and it's a mythos that reaches clear across oceans. My name is Jordan pronounced and Scottish manner. I'm the director Michael Canadian collection. I'm British. Yes indeed yeah. That's great though that's great. If you wouldn't mind just describing to me how you came to to Tom Thompson's work well. It happened a long time ago actually back in the one thousand nine hundred eighty S. I was working in the Royal Academy in those days in London and I was based in the library and and I just came across a book simple as that I was intrigued because it was Thompson's work particularly bicker seven two I was so immediate and on although it was using techniques that were recognized these postimpressionist bright colors dabs dabs of paint very painfully it. Nonetheless didn't look like any landscape I've ever seen and so this was the assumption this was Canada. This was somehow different front could not be Britain. It could not be Russia could not be Norway. This Canada looked like and of course that's an intriguing idea to follow through. I've I've seen what Lauren Harrison tontons painting. I went to being in that wish Tommy Thompson painted and what you come out of is thinking well. It doesn't like Tom Thompson painting. He translated it into his own language and yet I can see as I say I've talked to many any many Canadians who say you must you must look at those landscapes. Look exactly like that. Don't we've learned to look at them. In that that way we project onto landscapes. That's the that's a evidence of success my goodness you know if you're an artist who can actually change the way you look at things. They're very few dumb. Ian Jardine has a particular gift for expressing just why we've struggled to make peace with Thompson's death. Maybe it's his transatlantic point of view which affords him a wide angle look at the story. The reality of it all seems to have struck him after screening. Tom Sometimes in film at his previous post. The dulwich picture gallery in London a few years ago. I had to get up. Thank the the producers and I'm afraid I absolutely blocked embarrassing and it was not drafted canoe floating upside down the last image in the film and I'm sorry just even even now I can't. I haven't got to grips with this whole and I don't think Canada has really and I think that's why people why there is such an industry of kind of looking at trying to find reasons for it. There is no reason for it. It doesn't really matter I mean you've paddled up on July eighth and didn't come back and then nothing can bring him back but even even now I think Canada's still struggling to come to terms with that because not only because he was so brilliant but also there's something about his image which it feeds into that so well that man look good in a Tuque. I'm just saying you know. I've never seen a photo of Tom. Thomson just didn't look like it'd be imposed posed by the young Gary Cooper. He just seems to have his life seems to have been photographed in an all filming way. They looked like stills from film you you know he was just very food to genetic. He's very silent. You don't have his voice ever. He wasn't recorded too. You have silent beautiful brilliant genius and you can never get closer to him than that. The more I allow this this unknowing knowing sort of void to be the more. I seem to be getting from the the paintings Is there something unique about a painting that can do that to a person. I think it's part of the you know it's partly a response to a brilliant technician at work which is immediate and that's so when something is is that you feel you're close to the artist but I think when you also have all of these kinds of myths surrounding surrounding and growing and new books being written every every year you have this kind of richness as swirling cloud of of Fort Fort World surrounding the person who is absolutely silent and gone and yet the work still speaks so it's a very rich mixture and I think the two feet on each other you know so that you no longer just look with is you're looking with a whole kind of mindset satin and that's very special to him. I it occurs to me all the time standing in front of a little sketch or even the finished painting by Tom Thomson you feel it behind the eyes so there's that personal identification with him to that again. Part of this drive saved create personality to create something out of very little. We have I've never lived anywhere but Ontario. I'm steeped in the wind. The Sky the color and the legend of Tom Thomson and I still feel a restlessness deep in my bones. I'm reminded of a moment from my conversation with Cheryl Grace Grace the moment where I ask the unanswerable question. I can't help but repeat to everyone I seek out. There seems to be a discomfort or dissatisfaction in simply not knowing certain things about Tommy Thompson and I wonder why can't we just live with human beings but is there a cost to not being able to just say okay. It's a mystery that we can still get people coming out to see the plaque on the CAIRN and visit the McMichael have the mystery draw them in but we can't can't seem to make peace with with not knowing you know now more than ever more than we did. Maybe fifty years ago even well. I I wasn't kidding when I sort of blurted it out. It's human nature look what we did have done continue to do with Franklin. It's the same human desire for answers and the same I would say fundamental human fear of the unknown. North Fried nailed it on the head when he called called garrison mentality our our needs set of hold ourselves safe both psychologically and physically in in a walled in environment and what we're wiling out is all those forces of nature that we can't control and that's that has that has mythic thick and missile legitimising power and ironically. I don't sense any of that in Thomson's this painting I mean even northern something Northern River which does convey a certain forboding when you actually experienced the the work what you receive seve is not something in my estimation that comes from a person who's fearful in that situation this beautiful irony in it and certainly if I go so do the McMichael which I do every every chance I get I. It's not fair that I feel. It's it's it's a sense of beauty of harmony of of a certain sense of exhilaration. Everybody's going to have a different responses sponsored so subjective so personal but yeah it's ironic that he thompson the man mythologised over and over again in this way when his actual paintings seemed to be telling a different story but then they can't. We can't know what there's that story is because he never talked about it he and then he's gone so we don't know what he thought he was doing in those paintings thanks but for me. I think he I think he was painting. What he saw and things that he loved it. He appreciated enjoyed.

"And that's the book that I got Doc. Gregory clogged thinking about Thompson as an ideal case study in Canadian history. He looked at the secondary accounts of Thompson's life. The biographies piece how others told his story and then compared them with whatever primary sources he could find. He wrote a book of his own. It was decidedly different from Judge Judge William Little's potboiler. My Name is Dr Gregory clubhouse. I am the author of the many deaths of Tom. Thomson separating fact from fiction as well as is the research director for death on painted lake the Tom Thomson tragedy which is a a website of documents information images related Gitam thompsons life and death little really does lay out what seems like a pretty convincing intriguing provocative thesis that Thompson was likely murdered and that was my point of entry as well and I thought well there's all these sorts of strings things not talked about theories about out a drunken fight that led to Thompson's death that perhaps he had been married or an impregnated a woman you know that he got in a fight about the war. There were just so many factors to keep in mind that I thought this is better than any contemporary crime. TV show this would be really exciting for people to get their teeth into and to think about how to study history. There's something that seems kind of at least ethically suspect talked about going in kind of exhuming a body seemingly on a whim some October night with your buddies how does that how did you come to terms with that ethical aspect of Thompson's death and the aftermath to to speak about William Liberals and his friends ethical decisions. I mean that's a fascinating fascinating case. They have a long history in the park. They'd been campers there as boys they leased cottages on Canoe Lake and I'll Gahan Park and so they took it upon themselves to explore to say well. Let's just go and see if we can discover something and of course they didn't know exactly where the body had been buried initially so they sunk three the holes trying to find something and on the third hole they discovered remains. I think that question of ethics is a really important one and it's troublesome one in this case what I talk about in the many deaths of Tom Thomson. There's a recording by one of the other men involved in the case. Frank Frank Brown and it was made before the OH P P analyze the remains and publicly stated what their findings were about the remains and at that time browde is saying well. We figured that it was okay to do this without asking for approval from the park. They didn't seek out anybody's approval at they just went over and start digging because if there was no body there we weren't doing anything wrong or illegal and if there was a body there I think the assumption was well. We'll be forgiven for this transgression Russian because clearly we've changed history if you will or discovered some sort of public lie but even they had their doubts about what they were doing the start of the legitimacy or the ethics about what they were doing and in the end the said it's not it doesn't look like it's Thomson that's within about a month of analyzing the remains Dr Noble Sharp who is the head of the Attorney General's laboratory which is uh-huh today the equivalent the center Forensic Sciences noble sharp came up to a park with an officer they exhumed the remains sharp brought them back to Toronto and had them analyzed. They were an x ray technician. Analyze them an anthropologist sharp himself and based on all of these is people's findings. They announced that they were not. Tom Thompsons remains in fact they weren't even the remains of a European heritage male. Yes I think the identified the remains as possibly indigenous origin right but that's not the end of that that confusion even about where Thompson has buried seems to you have been perpetuated to some degree which you say that's correct. Absolutely I think one of the things that I suggest many deaths of Tom. Thomson is the ball buckled the conspiracy theories the murder theory the suicide theory those have come to actually displace what was believed in announced in nineteen seventeen and and held sway for decades after that the idea that Thompson was murdered or committed suicide has come to be. I won't say the Party line but but the dominant manent understanding the one that most people know about the case have read those are the arguments that are most frequently made that somehow you know anthropologists apologists an x ray technician and doctors and the people who examined the corpse all got it wrong in twenty when he eighteen judge William Little Son. John Little published his own book who killed Tom. Thomson the truth about the murder of one of the twentieth the at century's most famous artists. It's based on a decade of research in the book John Little reminisces about his father's obsession and doggedly pursues the case himself he enlists to retired police detectives to look at the evidence in the murder plot deepens.

"This new era of peer to peer trade that as restart to take, you know, take responsibility for what we can do and should be doing to protect our digital digital footprints IP. You know, that will perhaps in this future. I can imagine as having full agency over the IP itself, and and benefiting in material ways perhaps from how I exploited commercially. Otherwise, so there's a hope that there will be this new era of peer to peer trade that it might eliminate the need for intermediaries that have been taxing society paps unfairly for many years and paps the ones that remain will remain on the basis of value, and essentially there'll be this widespread democratization of the world economic system that currently is dominated by a few powerful actors who wield centralized control over markets. And so in some ways, I recognize some of those notions. As wishful thinking, the pragmatic side of me, but I do sense that are certain things that may be realized at least version of those things that might be rely. Sized Carolina spoke about the initial tension that institutions and governments perhaps had towards the internet as a technology that would potentially disrupt them altogether. I feel like we have a new wave of that again. And there's a gung ho extreme that's blockchain and bitcoin that in hotel hotel hotel, which is I think unhealthy, but I think there's some things that we might. Well, we might do well to reflect on and sort of ask ourselves. How do we harness that sentiment and weave it into companies like yours at Thomson Reuters? How do we influence the policy makers listening to us right now to not see this as a takeover or something of that nature? I mean, I personally think it's really exciting to think about a global electronic currency sort of value transfer cross. Border cross continent. I think it's super exciting to think about that. And the possibilities that come with that. Is it bitcoin? Is it something else? You know? I don't know what the currency will be. But just the fact that there is a framework there that can facilitate that is awesome to think about right. And I think that we need to have. You know, as many people as possible thinking about how how experiment with that. How to to make sure that whatever this new framework is is acceptable and inclusive. So that while we're off building this new global network and framework for us to to transfer value. You don't leave half the world behind because they're not connected to it. So I mean, I think the possibilities. There are quite a quite endless. I would actually like to not have to pay my Bank, you know, fifty dollars every tunnel. I want to move dollars from the us into South Africa, for example. Right. And this could potentially help with. Someone is has vested interest here. Exactly. So no, look, what do you make of this Carolina just to piggyback off that? I mean, I think that policymakers need to listen to a vested interest. Right. So in considering what needs to be done what the possibilities are think the voices of individuals the voices of commercial entities. The voices of all stakeholders must be hit. So I I I fear that perhaps what is perceived as the peps negative possibility were so scared we're not we're going to do is because we haven't spoken in after each other or listened enough to each other. And I think that the way to break this Papp's would be to generate a wide spread African discussion about what the possibilities and where we could be going. That's really well put I'm going to close by reading a quote from the us Commissioner for infrastructure and energy, Dr money Abuzaid who is quoted as saying in order. Accelerate the creation of a single digital market for Africa. There is a need have similar common. Roles across the continent to ensure a more predictable.
