AI Storytelling Systems With Mark Riedl

"All right everyone. I am here with mark. Redel mark is a professor at georgia institute of technology mark. Welcome to the podcast a delightful to be here. Thank you say. i'm really looking forward to our tat. We've been twitter friends. Twitter connect for quite a while. But it's been a long time in the works trying to get this conversation going so thanks once again and welcome will usually start these conversations by having you introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us a little bit about your journey and how you came to work in at young well. When i was a kid i watched this movie called tron and i've been trying to get it to the gaming grid ever since equality of fraud but the will make it that went back to far right You know is okay. They changed the light cycles. Can't be too happy about that. But ever since then it's kind of been a series of happy accidents but my voyage into artificial intelligence and machine learning came through human computer interaction. So i really interested in this in school took way too many psychology and human factors classes and that was even before discovering this thing called artificial intelligence and the day. I took that class. I was hooked and then somewhere along the way i got invited to explore. Some research got invited to look at. Hey i for computer games and from that point on like everything just kind of kim together. Nice nice when you started with this focus on the computer games. What were some of the things that you're looking at what we were looking at And this is scott. I don't want. I don't want to say how many years ago this was. But we were looking at adaptive game so we wanted to know whether games could change based on what the user wanted to do. Or what the interests of these were. This is sometimes called interactive. Storytelling the idea that you don't have to follow a linear course through a computer game with all these plot points you could decide to do something different. Like even decide to be the bad guy right and then the story would have to change or twist or add new elements into that from there. It became quest generation than it became story generation than we kind of eventually put the graphics aside and just said well you know. Can we just write a novel. Can we write a story that people would actually want to read and working on that ever since

'The Programmers Brain' by Felienne Hermans: A Book About Coding and the Human Brain

"When i hear the term programmer's brain that that makes me think that is that is that an affliction is that something that needs to be addressed by medical professional. Or what is the programmer's brain. Oh sorry you seem to have a case the programmer's brain do any and his word of the book tries to explain what happens in your brain when you program to most programmers horse a really deep understanding of programs deep understanding of computer but most computer science programs including one where i teach. They don't really for stuff related to cook missions. Just that that comes. A scientist would consider basic things like the difference between long-term ariane short term memory and working memory. That's not something you necessarily learn as a programmer. I maybe some people are like you know you don't really need to know this. But once you start thinking especially of reading code and incorporating understanding code that you haven't written then is sort of important to understand. The difference between this code is hard because my term memories week here and this code is hard because my short memory suffering here and the book tries to explain the basics of science. And how that matter for reading code so i read The first two and a half chapters recently and One of the things. That i found interesting was how easily you made me stop and go down a rabbit hole on the internet and look up how to do something. You chose to give some examples at least in the first couple of chapters in three different programming languages and while i am familiar with several programming languages i had never actually seen the ap l. programming language. And so that. I coating example that you given that i was like What and i had. I had to stop and you know later on in in the second chapter. I believe it is You actually have an exercise for the reader to go and do something with that language. But in the first chapter when i first saw it i i had to stop. I had to go on the internet. I found a website that would actually run the code iran. The co at played with the code. I changed things. I literally couldn't move forward in the book. Until i had to figure it out what that code did and i don't know if you intended that but that was the side effect that i experienced was that part of what you might have been going for or is am. I just weird. No so it wasn't like i meant to send you off. And i the reason that i fix a pl is because i wanted to have a language in which the keywords Everyone would go like what. What the four ride. This and entry hard because the book isn't for owner for java for javascript is generic so if you want something that actual actually real code but also confusing to everyone. Then there's no you can pick from even something all like global or four tron that whereas with abo it's like super super confusing and it's confusing in an interesting way

"I am delighted to be rejoined by the great morris. Thank you for being on the show. Thank you for having me on. This film feels of peace with The fog of war and the unknown to me these memory. Pieces with these elusive. Almost mythical characters. Why did you make this movie. One thing what you just said is music to my ears. I've been trying to explain in a number of interviews. I'm not exactly sure why part because it interests me the similarities between my psychedelic love story and the fog of war. So hearing you say it unprompted thank you. You're welcome picked up on that no absolutely The result of making certain oddball choices off of war. Came out of the entira tron my interviewing machine and this idea of first person storytelling. I'm not sure which came first. I think the entire tron came before this obsession with the first person although they kind of happened at the same time By phil mr death about an electric chair man and holocaust denier fred. Luter junior would have been an entire tron film save for the fact that the material became so controversial. It's really interesting. I wanted it to be one character film. But i couldn't because it involved holocaust denial as it turns out. I am a jew and i believe that the holocaust happened. I've never had any reason to doubt that it happened. But i've always. I've always been fascinated by people denying stuff because after all it seems to be a tickly now in our day and age it seems to be the central element of human existence. All you have to do is look at the results from this last presidential election. The understand that denial is sort of what we're all of our. When i made the fog of war it was my opportunity. I saw it as an opportunity. To really indulge in first person storytelling.

Can the Pittsburgh Steelers Go Undefeated?

"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee. Titans having to get a drive late in the game even though been was a reception late like they were able to the ball greg band. There's gonna prevail on the road. The pittsburgh steelers had the hold on dearly man. Hold on they do for the baltimore. Ravens they score in the second half and they were able to do that then back pop. For the end zone touchdown pittsburgh and all the out cut to the chase. Claypool man play. It just seems that all the critical point of the season it's offense has been able to produce down to like. I said the dallas cowboy game last week obviously exploiting a very bad bengals defense and well in a team like the cat city chiefs right and i say okay. One had the baby stopped him have to limit big play. The pittsburgh steelers can do that with rush. Plays on the back end right. Play play man when they need to stop the big click now. Let's go offensively the only time we've ever seen patrick mahomes lose. He was in the playoffs. He was standing across from another super bowl. Winning quarterback that was tom brady and rothlisburger. Isn't tom brady but he can do. Some of those things in important moments. And we've seen of do those. And so i think this team can most certainly went into as you mentioned chase claypool his nickname if catching on with you but maple tron. He comes from canada. He's this guy. I didn't know anything about. I wonder if you did because he has seven touchdowns in his first nine games as a pro. What has he brought to this offense. I mean you look at what this league is turning into. Because of the lack of physicality it's a it's a size speed league right like it's starting to they used to be. It didn't matter what happened in the shorts olympics at the combine like if a fast it didn't necessarily mean it was going to translate do can do certain things there did me but it's starting to mean that at the wide receiver position because of the rules. Like if you could flat out run you're gonna probably get open because they can't hold you. You pass five yards. They can't hit you across the middle play putin critic who has great hands he tracks the ball. Well he has a big body and so when you have all those things just translate we've seen chase claypool. You know kind of come out of nowhere. They just kinda have a knack for finding people that sit what they want to do and utilizing them in a way. That truly helps the team chase. Claypool is just another example of that

Abuse and Ethical Lapses: What Happened When Justin Sun Acquired BitTorrent

"You recently wrote an epic article called Hype Man of the century for the verge, and it was just an sun, the founder and CEO of Tron. Tell us what that stories about. The story is about how he? Basically, came to America in in some ways to put it short. He acquired this company that's very famous in the US Silicon. Valley bittorrent. And through the acquisition sought to sort of expand his empire by adding new features that could help promote his crypto currencies and. So the story is really about his aquisition and how he suddenly straddled this difficult relationship between the US and China and How in some ways, the decisions he made flew in the face of you know. What I suppose, you could say seasoned businessman would. Decide. To do in those cases. So he pursued ethically and legally dubious software projects and the workplace in the United States in San Francisco change dramatically, and so the story is told through eighteen current and former employees who spoke to me only if I wouldn't use their names in the story, none of them sought to None of them wanted to face retaliation from Uber millionaire like Justin, son So we agreed a one of the sources however is on the record in the story and a I reached out to justin son to try to interview him. Twice and also sent him a long list of detailed questions based on the allegations, observations of all the people who talk to me for the story, and the product is this narrative that takes you through this wild ride inside of Tron. When Justin son came to San Francisco. So, let's talk a little bit more about son and let's go into his background a little bit just. So people got a sense of where he came from what was his upbringing and how did he come to become a millionaire? Well he was born in Qinghai which is a province in China and it's not a super well-known province He moved around a bit when he was a kid he among other things went to a academy for studying go the It's like a combination between chess and checkers. It's a pretty complicated game And he? He says in his autobiography, which is called the brave new world or brave new world that he wanted to be go master in his parents essentially said, well, look if you're GonNa do this, you got to commit like you can't back out of this and so he was thrust into this world of go in the city of Wuhan. There's a famous essay writing contest in China that is sort of a a way you can get into some of the most prestigious colleges there and he. wrote this essay that captured the attention of of the judges and helped him get into a prestigious college and so. He he however was by his own admission, not a great student. He was he played a lot of video games and stuff and. Went to college and then went to do graduate program at Penn State in the states. In East Asia Studies and it was there. That he was an early investor in Bitcoin and according to him or in according to the Lore. And Legend on the Internet invested a significant portion of his to in Bitcoin and made a lot of money and then began trying to hatch ideas for various tech projects among them was pay well, which was sort of his big hit that.

That said it. It eventually edged into the territory of this sort of I suppose you could say pornography and in in the long run shutdown by the Chinese authorities for. Quote. Disrupting. Socialist values that APP was among many that were shut down for those reasons. But.

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

Between The Lines

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

"Me. If you've already heard me mention this but one of my favorite quotes during the covid crosses a pdf the guardian. This is the British lift wing newspaper. Now, this was the heart of the coronavirus crisis. It would have been light much quote just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship, there are no free marketeers during a pandemic. Now, the author of that apt quote Jonathan Freedland, he was referring to the audio logical revolution within the British conservative. Party. Now, according to Freedland Boris Johnson's his have defied four decades of thatcherism small-state free-market, thinking I to spend staggering amounts of money and then subsidizing the wages of workers. Could the same thing be said about Australia's Liberal Party they're the party of Howard and Costello now embraces big-spending high deficit government interventionism. And is a permanent state of affairs poor kilis editor at large of the Australian US pipe and Judas Brit is emeritus professor of politics at Latrobe University poll judy welcome back to the show. Hristo Paul, you've written to calms about this subject in the past week, summarize your faces. Will Martha is that all parties and all governments have to respond to the times in which they find themselves on display in Australia. Now we face an extraordinary economic crisis and the response reveals the nature of Scott Morrison, his prime minister and the Mars and government. So Morrison, not responding as Liberal Party progressive or is it Liberal Party conservative? He doesn't see himself in those terms his responses pragmatic selects able and practical. He's not inhibited by former policy and audio logical icons of the Liberal Party. Say What we say is the government has abandoned the long-term syllabus aspirations. It's A. Big Spending government it's a government government intervention focused on Keynesian demand management. It does however on the Liberal Party tradition of tax cuts will see next week. So it's prepared to regulate or deregulate according to the situation according to what's required. So to sum up say that Morrison wants to be defined by results and outcomes not philosophical principle. Okay. You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good. I think the Overwhelming sentiment on the back benches. Support, the government strategy in the hope that this gives individual employees, the chance of actually being reelected and my will give the government the chance of being reelected. So the reinvention of Australian liberalism is on full display with this budget judith break you agree with Paul Kelly about the the audio logical significance of these changes but actually think the government had much choice in that sense I do think we can see something audio logical preferences in a couple of the policies poor mentioned the tax cuts they've chosen tax cuts over for example, committing to a permanent increase in new act now co Job Seca. They've also, for example, if we look at the way, they wanted to stimulate the housing market. They've gone for giving money to individual owners rather than, for example, embarking on a social housing project. So I think in some of the means, we can still see some of the ideological preferences of the Patty. One of the things I've wondered when I've been watching the events unfold. If Labor had won the last election was in government with the Liberals have supported the same levels of spending or would they have if you like stayed in the sort of ideological bunker bean and attacked the blow out of the deficit? I mean, it's a hypothetical. In some ways I think we've been very lucky that it's been the liberals and the coalition in government because they can sense being able to Ghana much more support. I, think than I have been able to do for the same levels of spending but isn't cameras response to the COVID crosses more consistent with other Western governments during the pandemic Judy. Yes that's what I think. I had much option but the question is if the coalition of being opposition, would they have supported a Labor government going? You've written a lot about this have many many decades about when orthodoxies or overturned. It's usually bipartisan is that you'll since if the coalition cypher argument's sake wherein opposition I would have gone along with this big spending interventionism. Look are essentially agree with what Judy's said about this I think in a sense we're. Fortunate, if you liked that the coalition's in government because it's taken all the big spending decisions. and. Lay has been prepared to go along with back. In fact, it's argued that there should be even more spending. So in that sense, we've had a broad degree of thought-out ship within the economic framework. It is hot the typical of course to tron speculate about what would have happened if alive had been in office doing this but I do think that the coalition in opposition would have been tempted to make caught a lot of criticisms and to suggest that the spending had gone too far. There's a big difference for party thing in government managing across and being an opposition. Cape with this theme of a political realignment among center right parties around the Western world. If you think about Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, he tapped into widespread anxieties. America's rust belt. What can class constituencies? Boris Johnson showed last December, he resonated with traditional British Library voters in the Midlands and northern England. Judy. Do you think that Morrison in a wise doing the same thing here in Australia? Now, I think they're very different sorts of crises. I mean the pandemic is an external. Crisis, it's not being caused by politics in any way it's not back nationalism versus globalism or any of those things, and so I don't agree with that. I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. Thought. Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. I think people who argue that. Morrison is a pilot version of DONALD TRUMP MAUREEN DOWD in the New York Times by the way, but go on. I think. I think turned him mentally misunderstand the situation I. Think the change in conservatism is very dramatic in the United States. If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, and now we have Donald Trump, who if you lock is a populist conservative? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. Regard for the political system, he thrives on division. So he likes all the traditional conservative norms, and then when looks at his policies. Well he's sabotage the global trading system. He's an arch protectionist. He's engaged in this trade war with China he's appraised dictators and suspicious about. So I guess one of the Fundamental Christians here is the extent to which trump is an aberration. And the extent to which post trump American concert is we'll have to try and create a new position cognisant of the damage that trump has done to the traditional Republican Party

Insider says Petron is the fourth of apple's manufacturing partners to make the move to Vietnam. Foxconn. And Tag all have manufacturing setup there. It's worth noting that while the apple manufacturer will be going to be at. Phnom. Petron won't necessarily be, making, anything for apple in Vietnam. That said the piece points out that apple has been encouraging suppliers to move production out of China to avoid costly tariffs. Apple's online store went live on the subcontinent today tech crunch says for the first time in more than twenty years since apple began its operations in India, the iphone maker has started selling its products directly to consumers in the world's second largest smartphone market.

Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Depart Netflix's Live-Action Series

"Okay, let's start off with A bit of news that I'm sure comes to some disappointment our own ht. What is going on with Avatar the last air bender they were GonNa make a live action TV series for net flicks. What is the update? The latest update is a real bummer for avatars last Air Bender Fans Michael Dante Di Martino and Brian Connie ebsco who created the original acclaimed nickelodeon. Animated Series have parted ways with net flicks over the creative direction of live action remake series. De Martino Post announced in a post on the website titled An Open Letter to Avatar last air bender fans saying that they couldn't control the creative direction of the series and decided to just exit the project altogether and he he had some pretty not I wouldn't say harsh but not. Veiled for in terms of thinly-veiled In like knots unhappiness with Netflix production So he said at one point The project, which is still ongoing has the potential to be good. But what can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on screen, it will not be what Brian and I had envisioned or to make. So this is a massive bummer for Avatar. The last Air Bend Fans because De Martino. Goes involvement in the first place was kind of the reason that There was somewhat cautious excitement for this because these the creators at donors in executive producers for the new Netflix series and they promised or shared rather that they would be deliberate. Choice to a cast as. A people of Color and ethnically accurate to the depictions in leverage animated series and the. The memory of the last live action attempt. Ed Bender is still strong in fans mines, and we don't want a repeat of that. So now that contracts go rhino are gone, there's a lot of fear that the the. Disaster will be. Repeated. Yeah, we shouldn't insinuate that this disagreement it's probably over like the the the racist of casting or anything could be like story or character that we don't even know what the disagreements are over. This is a little surprising to me though because my conversations with filmmakers on and off the record has been that like Netflix's is pretty hands off with stuff. So I'm actually very surprised that big Conflict here I'm curious as a as a fan of Avatar the last air bender now that the creators are known no longer involved in this, would you still be excited to watch live action series not at all? My cautious excitement from before. Has now turned to a sort of read. which not to say that there can you know the situation can't come out the better I'm sure that there are some great. Writers and creators out there who could have an affection for Avatar last bender could. Steer this in the right direction, but it just feels like. Martino and Connie lasko are such a major part of Avatar less air bender and its success in why such great perfect animated show that they're not being involved in stepping way in a in this situation where it seems that they clash with the Netflix's executives in some way can't really know what? I sure what it just doesn't dumb. Bode well for the production at large.

I have been most interested in the last year plus he called out to very specific areas that are one could argue or systemic. He focused on the need to to Reim- power I. Guess You could say Boeing's engineering function to make sure that the products they design and develop. Our first and foremost passing muster at the engineering level in that extends into system safety assessments, and the things that the Max is focused on and the other one is the pilot interface recognized very clearly that Boeing. Boeing absolutely missed it when it came to determining what pilots would do in certain situations again. The folks that know them. The Max accident histories know this all, too. Too well and he made, he said. We need to make certain that we that that never happens again and he. You know as our interview shows. He quoted and said that you know that's one thing. We don't think we're ever going to miss again. So those are two things that he pointed out voluntarily that he recognized really need to change. The I thought it was extremely forthcoming. One of my takeaways from the interview was that he said he's going to prioritize selling new airplanes that airlines need to park their older airplanes, and if that hurts their aftermarket business, so be it. That was certainly stood out to from a company that for you know? A couple of years have been hammering away about trying to get fifty billion dollars in an aftermarket revenues which are nowhere near, but certainly signaled a at least a little bit of a shift in priorities now. I think it's a recognition that Boeing is going to succeed by building the best possible airplanes that it can build on. No matter their role many on the air transport side it clearly recognized the long tail benefits of having a strong aftermarket business, and they're not going to get out of that aftermarket business, but you're absolutely right. The the fifty billion dollars in revenue for the Global Services Group driven primarily by commercial aviation is now a a little less important and making sure the products they get out the door are. Are Right when they get out the door. We've been so focused on the Max. It's easy to forget their last major new program. Seven eight seven also ran into a situation where it was grounded. No fatal accidents thank goodness, but really fundamental shortcomings in the developing a product, so calhoun recognizes that we need to get the products built right first, and then we'll worry about services and insularity income

"The good news is well. Not a great deal on good news, a not not a great deals actually occurred across the markets of light. Today. We've actually got a little bit of take in what's going on with Bitcoin and the rest of the market. We'll talk you through a couple of things. I'm saying right now. There's not a great deal within that. Top Ten buffet looking at Bitcoin now look the whole week last week. As today is Monday. Obviously, the entire wake ended up closing down half of one percent. Now that's not much. Not much at all and the entire range, and he he's what's interesting. The fact that it close down half a percent. Look that he's a little bit interesting on expose, but it's more about the entire range of that candle that the range of that entire candle. Let me tell you what that is. It is from it's hard to. It's low, roughly calculated their. Seven point three six percent. Very little indeed now. You think that's still sounds like a lot and I. I suppose the IT sounds like a lot, but you know you go back to the wake. Starting was early June first of. That was a twelve percent week. Yeah, we'll look at last week. Even last week was a little bit big. Not a great deal bigger eleven percent there as well. You can't okay going. Back to the end of my, we had thirteen percent week and we've the wakes that we see. Also of between usually ten and twenty percent realistically, that's what we that's what we see. The vilatility has dried up for the Hong Bang on Bitcoin. Now yesterday we closed down point seven five a percent today without point nine does not a great deal going on he in this market for the time they were one thousand, three hundred and. Seventy took a kite. So north thousand three, hundred, seventy two. Bitcoin right now now the positive is is holding its ground. It's holding above nine thousand, having too many issues holding of thousand and it's grinding. You know it's just hanging in there. That's a positive thing it. It doesn't site too much full whether we can your high or law at this stage the weekly. Look it's back in. That cradles I. Know It's looking a definitely. Definitely more bullish and bearish on the weekly timeframe, and I'm looking at as I speak to you, but it's a little bit more convincing for me to to really say this market take often do well a theorems that are pretty good diet cost talk tense up the most two point, five percent up two hundred, thirty three dollars, or seventeen sense now theory and loss. Really Nice quickly Cana. By the way, it's a really really really really trendy so theory and looked a lot stronger to me than what Bitcoin does for. The Time Bang lost weight down one point six seven percent not huge cannon NAS pullback. Cradles looking very very good. It's a two thirty three is up two point five six percent eighteen point seven percent off point, one of the percent rotten lost weight once guy. It was down down two point. Two five percent excel pays actually looking bearish It's looking bearish to me. It has been for quite some taller rolling over at the moment on that weekly timeframe, but again we need to say when eighty see above twenty cents again to get that momentum. Moving would be a really really powerful thing, not much going on for up. Hey, right now, bitcoin cash to sent up right now at two thirty seven fives, interesting bitcoin cash Theory by very similarly similarly similar I can't talk. Signed Price. It's up Senate to thirty, four, seventy five lost weight, just talk to the weekly a dying. We would down three percent on the best up one point three four percents tonight, one, seventy, two, seventy, five, a bright down through some support loss weight loss weeks down full point ignored percent. It's holding below that that level that one seven six a couple of support resistance levels around here. Look don't really shot that I'm looking for opportunities on right now. Because I just don't see the trend banks strong enough the daily nineties down, but it's not strong, still very solid, wise lot, coin, solid, wise one point to set up at forty three dollars and fifty cents. Does that represent good value Guy Looking very similar to that of exile they were. We don't have that strong trend like we do with say ethereal on the fifty three cents up exactly one percent and loss week it was down, but only down to him again, just grinding at going their bonnets very slow wake as well it was down three point six two percent, the sixteen dollars and sixteen cents up one point three percent when I say how. The since the purchase of see 'EM, say bond hasn't really done a great deal. Positive for itself as far as price goes The market doesn't seem to be doing much on bonaventure at the moment Kadhafi up two percent right now still in that strong uptrend. The weekly yet it closed up up two point two percent weekly Chat, looking very very strong dial job still hanging in that not much going on at seven point, nine cents does up two percent, a theory classic, very very slow wake a guide as I'm sure you probably will away down one point six percent sitting at six dollars twenty four. Point seven percent today again. It's a very very slow shot tron. One point five nine cents last week. It deploys down Anita. Percent Died. My view right now, is it? A theory is the best looking shot out of our top ten right now. That weekly chart is really really daily I WANNA. See it captures some mole momentum. WanNa see the high timeframe start start the mid timeframe trend a little bit better. We've got high alone a high a high now on a theory. If you WANNA have look five shot at there at the moment, we'll tell you what it is. It's It's lot co also blocking. It's China link. Child Link Perpetual, so that's a futures contract. They're gonNA have a look at that on earth ticks shot beautiful, little breakout this morning waiting for pull bikes that really nice looking trend there on that four hour the dailies now going to self in an option, and it looks really really good for move. If I look at the weekly as well it's was bullish Cadillac six percent last week. Bullish candle in the criminals are in broken hot today, a runic look set for a very strong mode, so my view. Ma Positioning right now to be watching link very very closely

"I don't come. Download the APP and put in the code. Try to call feel bias. Walk into the tram to come crypto shy well. Wasn't yesterday, a bit of a wild one high. Gee, WHIZ! Absolutely nuts. Big foles in markets as I was pretty confident, we'd say we did say some very strong moves down and listen good training conditions as well. No huge amount of opportunities also fought around the same so the time if you will try to, the CRYPTO, cried Naci boost strategies, you would've been had the opportunity on Bonnets on ails on Tron and on Cod Donna, which moved the laced, and that's the one I took. But still, WANNA percent profit for the day. Yesterday pretty stoked about that. Yeah let me saw a beautiful boost to the just couldn't raise the ordering Thomas a volatile my sword the calculations. They'll just get it quick enough. Tron beautiful and yes gripe. Fifteen minute time from I love the fifteen minute timeframe on the top ten perc contracts. Why are you asked me well because you've got a big position? Entering you stop also pre taught. So when you've got your entry and you stop plus really tie, it means that will effectively you end up with a lot more contracts? Now that could have the you know you can be. A double edged sword. In the sense that you know not, there's not much liquidity they. You can't call some slippage that. but if it does if you do taunt properly then, yeah, you can absolutely kill the pigs. It doesn't take very much movement to make some very very lodge money on a multiple of risk. It's one percent. Oh, half percent whatever you like, so yesterday was released is You know that I did saw was going to go to those low timeframes. That was the plan. I put out there on my youtube, so if you not they guy follow it. It was with planet. Put out of everybody really stuck to that plan and it was successful. Now When the markets wrought fool your fifteen minute timeframe the law or even fifty nine out the half an hour one hour. Well, it's just by knowing what the market looks like what it's doing for me. It's when the comes back to the market. We had some serious momentum. Yesterday's lower timeframe souls comfortable to do it. The Quincy he was there for me to fill my bigger orders and I got what I needed. as a matter of knowing what to do and win a Seidel Tom. It's not just about having a trading strategy is a lot of things we need to do is try to make sure that we. Were the right place at the wrong time doing the right things, and that's what law I've tried fools about. That's what might try to coke communities about. It's about sharing this information with people to let them know what my plan is. H time for them to make their own planes It's really important to us that we help the community and we help people to become the best tried is I candidates the whole purpose of the business? Now couple of things the first thing I'll say to you right now. You're not. On my list I'm going to get a video out there today and we're gonna be doing some stuff with a Toro. Coming up, and you'll need an account for it so if you haven't got if your already got an HR archaic now dramas. It says you've already got one. If you haven't got one jump on the mailing list because I'm going to put the link in to get one because I'm going to take you through the crowd, of course, their guy and that's just the beginning is also going to be scans. There's also going to be a lot more. Down the track as we develop and get our licenses, that's right. We'll be looking at other markets eventually as well so That's where it's going to get really dame cool. In on looking forward to that day. Anyway let's go back to the markets and that's just try to call dot COM Gawain do the video newsletter. You can actually jump on rotten massages, and you'll save posted, so can fill your boots on that one. But. Just talking the market now mainly I. It is so difficult to the man. When, I look at it right now, yes, tonight, bearish definitely. The bergische broke down from that daily can looked like all buggy that we're GONNA. Go much much lower. We did move caught a lot lower me from from yesterday's close. To where we bat bottomed out, it was four point seven seven percent, which significant decent move. On I haven't quite quickly so. Know, we headed towards having one of those. You know I nine ten percent decline top dies, but did not even we. We bounced that. You know we bat SPEC, really hot and that's where for me it's. It's a little bit tricky. And the reason it's tricky is because once again. bitcoins just wrecked. itself is a trend. It's gone low. Hi Lola. Then, that's gone straight back up to a high. Low Aloha and if I look at the four outshot. The. We've been here before we will hear. With a hair! Back through April. Now, we get an up trend that would I down as soon as it set itself down. Investment opposite said itself. I wasn't till sort of You know the start of my. Sorry the back end of Ipil, the we started to really have a decent. That was when we sort of went through seventy eight hundred. We ended up around ten grandma. Cunanan suddenly around that sort of figure. At we're going continual choppy period of time. That is very. It's not the best training conditions, the matter of fact, trading, spot or trading margin against BTC's probably given a lot more opportunity than everything else. It's just a matter of being patient. Looking at one point five percent yesterday. I'm happy with that because I ain't got, add on a flat That was a really nice, really nice way to start the week to be feeling fresh to do anything else this week unless the conditions good now with bitcoin yesterday i. Believe it all. Dan, lightly percent at once I've actually closed up one percent on the nose. We had a low thousand, eight, hundred, ninety, and we close at nine, thousand, four, hundred, twenty, eight, so. We're told me five hundred dollar swing, but if you look at the the high of the Diet was ninety five sixteen, so a really wall What does it tell me? It doesn't tell me about the role really? You know there is a low hi, there is a low low, but is there a good daily downturn? Absolutely not it's certainly isn't clear. If it's not clear, it's not there and just go back and white Bitcoin Bitcoin in particular sitting. North thousand four hundred fifteen dollars right now theorem also kind rejected on the dingaling. Two hundred and seventeen dollars thirty two cents, which is exactly the resistance level interesting that one. It did close down only point three percent closing at two thirty one when now slightly down on the session, but not by very much I mean it's point two of a percent, the EXA pay look at how to a hell of smashed down as well, but it closed up one point one percent closing at nineteen point two cents a guy. He's a very strong run backup carney down nineteen point one, which is down point, six of a percent bitcoin cash close down yesterday as well the close to thirty spot seven zero. It had moved old why to a lawyer yesterday twenty four, so a pretty decent eleven move to get back up to closing down point item, percent base, they and also right now it's two thirty, five ninety five point one of the scent they. Look the book the daily downtrend they, it's broken, one seventy six it in a down trend. It looks very bearish to me on in fact, looking for opportunities to try this show at the moment I'm hopeful I. Haven't got anything yet, but I am keeping a close on on this as it does. definitely carry the hallmark of of Loa low coming in here finally, the four Alcan was a legal beat smaller than I certainly would have my My mock there. We currently only saw yesterday with death three point two percent closing at one, seventy, three, six down point to at one, seventy, two non full wrought now lot coin, rolling over as well rejecting those lows yesterday once again with a sitting around some support around one around forty one dollars and sixty four cents at BAFTA, quite strong, it's still pretty solid.

The suggestion get across there and have a look at the video that stayed on the t x perpetual contracts of pain focusing on little to watch there for you guys and it's free so go and check out what. I want to show you this. I want to show you try that I took yesterday. I WanNa give you the reasoning behind it. I WANNA give you an entire understanding of what I'm looking for and why I'm looking for a thing. It's going to help already do. If you're a trade it will certainly help at least perspective. If you're not trading the I tried that's fine but I think it will give you a lovely to perspective is to try to Tom's and the power of cryptocurrency. Because look let's be honest. It can just flip so quick. It concerns a quick. You can make your money of the month in a single twenty four hour period and that's pretty much. What happened for me yesterday? So I'm very happy. I'm feeling very good and I wanNA talk through the market among because obviously you guys have made very aware that I've been talking about that ninety nine thousand eighteen. We broke up through that yesterday. I before. Sorry and then. We've we've seen that continuation push on through knuckles. Bitcoin did have a good day yesterday. You know another fall through full percent die before full percent To goodful percent days. That's really nice to say really really great stuff. Nothing knocking it out of the park but if you recall my said that little turn of trend at nine thousand I tain well. That guy is about roughly a thousand bucks to our resistance. Plenty of money. We made in that period time. So that's what's been going on and not only we say. Bitcoin move but we seen the rest of the market. Move very very well indeed. So I'm very happy with the way. Things are looking shopping at very very nicely. Does this mean bitcoin GonNa kick going? Higher probability was stuck more to the upside at the minute. But this is crypto. This is a mock can never know what's going to happen. All I can ever do is tried based off the probabilities that I have been using for years. That that's really all of somebody told me today. That some cow don was endorsed by Goldman Sachs. I haven't gone on proof that or anything like that MS site. Someone something that somebody told me that could have been move Kudzanai. But it wasn't what got man I go before that because I had a trade I got an opportunity can can technical analysis get it like you know. Tell you before these things no of course not but I can tell you this if you trading with the trend. You're usually going to be traveling in the direction that there's more than likely going to be used. That's that's what I found anyway and A my experience as a all we're trying to do is use a trading strategies to get us into the market and the market will do what the market does so very very good Currently we are down point seven ovalles percent on Bitcoin. A theory in right now is two hundred and twenty two dollars. Six ends up point seven percent yesterday. Fought point eight percent move. Really Nice moved once again. They by the theory pushing on through a level of resistance. That resistance was sitting running around that two hundred seventeen dollars on the daily now has an option once a guy with a high a high coming in yesterday and we push a little bit tonight as far as training opportunities for me right now. I'm waiting for pullbacks really am they're pulled back in the cradle on the four hour yesterday as well as on the two hour really. It'll pull bucks. But the problem was didn't have enough trended to be actually in the market trading that so I didn't take that that's what took took. Currently with exile paves slow slowing pay. Gee Whiz I wish it would do something. It's not done a lot for quite a while but that doesn't mean that a warrant do something still is except pay is still a big company that we currently down point up. Point one of a percent sitting Ronaldo's of twenty cents and that's kind of what we closed yesterday twenty cents. It was up one point three percent. It's got to push on. It's got to get above the high of twenty point eight. We get through that twenty point night will do have something of a stronger trend at that moment. Actually say some follow-through buying on Exa pave. The tank is pretty Pretty Flat Bitcoin. Cash has been quite messy on the daily. Now for what? Gee Whiz? That's April through. I land night to be fair. It really hasn't had that much major. It's not trended. Well is dropping. Look confused to be honest. It's up three percent yesterday. Closing at two hundred and fourteen. Dole's on the is up half percent today as I speak at two forty one fifteen but yes doesn't ask for Al Trendy but this better markets out there for modest and that's what I'm focusing more attention base vigorously also closed up early point one percent A closed the die at one ninety two spot eight five currently. We've pretty much flat on that number child. Let Him all that interesting. The moment eat up like going well yesterday. Up to eight percent closing a forty four spot. Seven five four hour here on this lot. Corn perpetual doesn't look too bad. It's just not really beautiful That I like to say when I am looking for that. Thank said the followed by the sixty now.

The answer is neither Lineup so it's really about just whiting. I'd I love that. Trend SAIMAA is up half percent forty five dollars on the noise. It's worth keeping an eye on though I will say that over the weekend. They us while had a pretty good die on a pretty good start today as well. Yesterday was only at one point five.

"You explain how your role has evolved between tether and embiid Phoenix and kind of wary? You currently sits. Because there's some confusion over the organizational structures. We didn't have to get into the banking and and kind of creation and asset component of it but But where do you spend most of your time on the infrastructure is on the other side or is this just a but the discrepancy? That doesn't really exist. In fact it's more just a organizational chart issue so you know I my exp- by have a really good expertise also in insecurity. So that is one of the reasons why in two thousand sixteen I was asked to stepping us with your Phoenix so I steal mine. Main role is to act An amazing team of developers in Phoenix any better debtor has less developers because most of the operations are on chain of course us well known blockchain. So the key part of my rolling Patter Is ensuring that blockchain's That we are going to has older climates that the we won't in terms of issuance redemption authorisation processes. So that is what they do in patter and also decide. The processes in which these insurance is redemption. Needs to happen so I that is I really I'm I'M BREATHE. Thorough and read annoying when it comes to security So Basically I spent quite some time design a designing All all these processes in between instead. I said I would say most of my time because I read called a lot there Old The basically I I mainly involved in mentioned engine and all the processes so I would say that I still Dimension engineered steel ninety percent me and the old that also the core service is still eighty percent me. I would say to. Let's let's talk about Tether I because it's just seen absolute explosion in volume and in new creation particularly or last quarter. So there's there's two things that I think we've talked about. One is the transition that started people. Forget only about a year ago Between Omni tether and then the RC and crx tether which are in been the case now trae USD this now traded and and And held on the theory of blockchain is Over five billion now which is larger than us DT on Omni ever was I think even units peak which round. Yeah three billion this transition. That really only happened last year. Can you talk a little bit about what ultimately led to the migration to a theorem? Might sound like an obvious question answer but but not only what led to that but also the decision making process for when to flip the switch because on the one hand. It's obvious there's a ton of develop activity. There's a ton of interest in those certainly. The capabilities are C- Tokens to salted a type of transferring creation. Like this but on the other theorem itself as a platform is certainly not ironclad from from a security standpoint and the last thing you want to have happen is any issues with the fungibility of a dollar denominated token during a chain split or a B migration do chain which is basically. What thirty two point. Oh yes so First of all the the moment when we decided to create Tighter on On the theory was really an fewer. No that was really end up two dozen seventeen. If you recall ended as seventeen was we were almost peak of bull run and the price of a bitcoin transaction enhance transactions. At some point reaches out. be five hundred dollars so of course there was. I was making money so You know people where we're kind of happy Steal the where really complain. Hard about pattern so we wear We we got a lot of complaints and other exchanges complaint that that support attacker that is issued a majority from any doubts about the costs of Of running an owning owed because ultimately you have you need to have a bitcoin a unit to bitcoin orders and an amish transaction so in endo tas seventeen we should we worked on the ethereal Michael For for her and we we deployed it. We really didn't use it and we didn't You know as a beginning to eighteen The market started accounting upbeat. And by the time we were we We wear eighty Announce Terry Theorem. It's an alternative the fees if he goes went down. Whitehall so first of all. I won't say that we never intended to migrate so we we wanted to create the diversity. We wanted to offer a way that a solution in case one blockchain guests load and knocks usable. Not So we wanted to give another opportunity to use a different blockchain. So you should. We suggest with changes to support at least to Had Our lunches so at any point in time traders can steal the funds between Between one change to another so I'd also panther was was born to to Make it easier to make faster the cross exchange arbitrage. So if you have really high fees or you have a blockchain that exploded and the commission times are ours than you lose completed the purpose of a stable corn so that is why the that is the key reason why we are blockchain blockchain so we are on Tron IUS legally than the allographs so biscuit we start to buy them and we we not weed. Dan Understood that Traders would prefer anyway Ethereal just for transactions speed and the and call general so start more predictable and Usually lower on on

"As they do in many of their newer models is full support for Amazon Alexa. And it's actually built into the infotainment system so if you haven't Alexa account setup which I have set up right now you can configure that and use that to access your Amazon Music Account Or to do any of the other functions that you would do with an Amazon Echo device when you're at home Without actually having to have an echo device so if you have some smart home features like automatic lights or Thermostat or for other things are controlled through Alexa. You can actually control those directly from the car so as you're driving home for example you can have it. You can tell it to turn on your exterior lights or open garage door without having to press any buttons and you can just use voice control for that and as I said you. Can you also use it to play any music that you have so the seats in this car are really comfortable as they typically are in in any out vehicle very nice materials is really? We'll put together great finish. It really feels like a luxury vehicle and one of the knocks on Tesla. As good as Tesla vehicles are in many respects at the price point you pay for them compared to comparable premium vehicles from other brands. Don't actually feel that luxurious. Most of the time. Yeah obviously you're giving up something here too for the Audi relatives in Tusla in terms of range and performance This is not a slow car by any means. But it's not gonna be able to drag race against a Model X. Performance It'll do zero sixty about five and a half seconds When you enable boost mode but it's really designed to be more of a mainstream product not a performance vehicle Audi is working on a performance variant of the Tron. That's going to be coming out Probably sometime in twenty twenty one I think and So we've seen That they're working on three motor variant. This one like most. Tesla's has two motors front rear up to two hundred horsepower. Each in the standard mode they actually put out about one hundred and seventy five horsepower. Each so about three hundred and fifty five horsepower total And then when you enable the the boost mode that will get you up to A little over four hundred horsepower Later this year Out He's going to be introducing a new variant of the Trot called the sport back which rather than having the sort of SUV. Traditional SUV wagon kind of horizontal roof. Line all the way back instead. it features a sloping rear back. So it's more coop like and that one We'll be actually going to be making some changes in the battery management system To use more of the battery capacity finding so far that they're battery durability is better than they anticipated so it will actually have more range it's expected to have an official range rating of about two hundred and twenty two hundred twenty five miles per hour and eventually those changes We'll probably be migrated back into the standard e Tron as well and going forward A. Tron. Is the the badging that out? He's going to be using all of their plug in vehicles. Which is going to be primarily a battery electric vehicles but also some plug in hybrid models electrical system and this vehicle is a four hundred volt electrical system which is typical of most current vis And it supports charging rates of up to one hundred and fifty kilowatts But and it also has a very robust throw management system so manages the temperature the battery of keep the battery from overheating which can cause damage to it or keep it from getting too cold On the batteries cold. It also can't charge fast so they've got an a very robust Temperature management system in this this battery pack and then in some of the other Higher end models that are coming up We've already got the Porsche tycoon in the market. I haven't had a chance to drive that one yet although I did get a chance to ride in one prototype last summer. Tycoon uses an eight hundred volt electrical system. Which is a higher power system It'll it has support for up to three hundred and fifty kilowatt Charging capability and Audi has another model in other coming out late this year which is built on that same platform as the TICON. That's called the each ron. Gt Very sleek Four door coupe. Like hatchback Similar proportions to the Audi a seven and That vehicles coming out towards the end of this year. Although with what's going on right now may get pushed back into early. Twenty twenty one all right. Let's get to the bottom line. So they out succeeded in their stated goals with e Tron. This car very much. Audi in all respects anybody. That's familiar with modern Audis and likes them. They'RE GONNA they're gonNA love this vehicle but it's not perfect it's on the pricey side this particular one eighty five thousand dollars base models star about sixty seven thousand dollars before incentives. And that's that means it's not gonNA be a mainstream vehicle but out aren't mainstream vehicles for their premium brand. It's a premium brand no problem there. The range rains not great. I think it's more acceptable for almost everybody. Two hundred and four miles. I drove two hundred ten miles on this thing before I pulled into an electrify. America's station still had nine. It's showing showing on the range meter so getting two hundred and twenty miles. Range is very very realistic in normal weather conditions. And you know that's generally enough for almost everybody you know. Most people don't drive more than forty miles a day. So you know except for very long trips you know. It's not a problem and I charged it up from almost zero to one hundred percent in about forty five minutes at an EA station. At one. Hundred and fifty kilowatts there's over four hundred electrify America stations now across the country plus hundreds more from charged point ego and and other network providers that are also starting to offer similar one hundred and fifty kilowatt charging rates. So you can pretty much drive this thing anywhere you wanna go. Just like with a Tesla who the Super Charger. Us going to have to stop a little bit more frequently For those fast charges finally the the biggest functional complaint I have about this thing is touchscreen interface for the climate controls. You saw the split dual screen dual touchscreen system with the infotainment navigation on the top climate controls on the lower screen. The top part is fine for using media maps and so on the bottom screen for the climate controls is terrible. That interface is atrocious. Really hard to use while you're driving if you want to adjust anything if you want to turn on the default or trying to get through that to turn on the window. Defago does not work every manufacturer. This is not just Audi. Every manufacturer needs to go back to just straight up. Rotary dials physical controls for climate control. So that you can give a quick twist to just the temperature just the fan speed adjusted direction where you want the airflow and leave it at that it does. We don't need high tech for climate controls in cars at least not while we're still driving now. I've complained a bit about that you know. And that's that's me some people like touchscreen interfaces and cars. I'm not one of them but aside from that you know it's not a deal killer. The rest of the vehicle is so great to drive. It's roomy it's comfortable. It's quick and electric zero emission. So if you're interested in the premium electric suv go check it out. And Audi dealer.

And then I got so excited because I saw that there was a chance we could actually do it with this technology. But Looking back at it. I have to say that. You know I was. I was inspired. By the experiences.

"Well. I'm curious now. Kind of stepping back from the the Meta attack of how? The movie came to be in kind of diving into the the actual content of the film itself. This is a really big treat for me because not only do I get to talk about filmmaking approaches and technology that I totally geek out about but I I can also talk about the mythology of Tron. Weights is incredible. It's very prescient in a lot of ways that I'm not even certain that that you guys were aware of at the time like things that that to me became really big conversation points a decade or more further out from when the film came out. Oh I'll tell you something that'll blow your mind. I had a revelation about the mythology of Tron. The first movie two days ago. I'm serious because in discussions about onto and discussions of that you know theoretical discussions about what it would be all of a sudden. It sheds light all the way back to the first film and I realized Oh this is why was doing that and I never really understood that that clearly so you know yeah it's that aspect of it. It's funny because I like to talk about the technical achievement of Tron and incredible work and all the talented people that worked on it and I mean talk about unsung heroes. You know ritually Taylor and bill courier did and and they're the teams and all the three companies. I can go on all day. About how great that whole group was but then people go see list. He's such a Geek you know. He doesn't love story or characters and that's not true at all. I mean what what actually got tron gave me. The energy to make Tron was not the Kiki Energy of computer graphics. What what motivated me for years? It made me put everything on the line where the characters and it was that story in particular and then I got so excited because I saw that there was a chance we could actually do it with this technology but looking back at it I have to say that you know I was.

"I thought about this I remember. This is over a weekend. Sunday and So then I said. How do I keep the integrity of sids designed, but simplify it for the computer and you gotta imagine it was already really simple in terms of color and shading. And Nike I. Don't Know How I got this idea, but I got the idea of what if you took the bike? which was very three and squeezed parts of it between two pieces of glass. To imagine that squeezing it between two pieces of glass, so if you look at it from the side. What I did was I kept that staring in the front comp-, the wasted designed it, but I flattened everything else. That was also full of all these compound curves just like I was pressing piece of glass against it. And that did it. We got enough of the. Complexity out of it so that the computer guys to do it, and by the way I want to say one thing about Madge I. That, it was pretty funny, which is? One of the main reasons their tanks. In the first tron movie. Is because when I first went to match I, which was really early on. I was keeping track of their capabilities like years before we ever made on. Their first major contract was with the military to do tank simulates. This was all the way back in the mid Seventies. This was totally like far out crazy stuff. You Know Darpa stuff. and Maj I was doing. You know it looks like very crude video games, but it was tank oriented. So, then I at some point came to them and said if you know. If these changed vehicles or tanks? You're going to be able to you know. Do a lot of this pretty effectively because of your tank experience and they said Yeah. So. That's why you know. The tanks worked out so well..

"Program and is designed to keep an eye on the MCP, but he also acts kind of like gladiator. Games that the MCP forces programs to participate in and as some people mentioned within the context of the film. He fights for the users when my favorite quotes from Tron. Users in the Tron universe are sort of seen as like gods, they are the creators, and the programs look to users for guidance and for approval, and they have had all communication cut off by the MCP. So they wonder if users are still out there, there's this whole existential crisis going on in the world of Tron and that's an interesting piece of the mythology of the movie flynn. Flynn, of course helps bring down the MCP and he escapes the computer world. He's also able to prove that dillinger's stole his work, and he ends up becoming the new head of income as a result now the film was not a big success at the box office, but it did find itself a cult following and also had a profound impact on the way, people would visualize cyberspace. Elements of the design from tron find it's way too early implementations of virtual reality and the production of the film itself relied heavily on some really innovative work from numerous people in order for the film to actually come into being. So Ramsay the wonder producer arranged for me to have an interview with the writer and Director of Tron Stephen. List Burger. What follows is our conversation about the technology used to create the movie as well as his philosophy about technology and. Stuff in general really the things that informed the creation of Tron I hope you enjoy. Steven List Burger. It is a pleasure to have you on the show. Thank you for joining tech stuff my pleasure now before we jump into Tron and I've got a lot of things to ask about for Tron. May My listeners would probably appreciate understanding a little bit about your background leading up to Tron, you had a background in animation leading up. I. Come from the East Coast. It was born in New York and went to college in Boston at Tufts and went to school at the Museum of Fine Arts where I studied film for five years, including animation, and I had my own company in Boston that did some live action, but primarily animation and we. Eventually ended up with a studio on the East Coast and one on the West. Coast where in our biggest job was doing animal Olympics for the NBC television network. And during that we developed. Tron and then tried to do it independently, but we couldn't pull it off so we were fortunate enough to get him business with Disney. You imagine a project with the scope of Tron would have been extremely challenging to pull off without some some pretty major Help and I also imagine that Disney's background in animation. Led to some some aid when you guys were working on Tron because I don't know that people who have seen the film are really aware. How much actual hand-drawn animation. Techniques were were incorporated. This was an era before. Computer Graphics reach that Digital Age where you do everything. Digitally on a computer, and then you can just export to a video file. This is way before all of that, so I imagine. Disney's involvement was somewhat helpful because that was a studio that actually understood animation. All of that is true and. Just to unpack that If we had tried to do it independently. I think it would've. We wouldn't have made it eventually. We would have had to either go under or bring in someone else because we were somewhat naive. We had an idea how we would do it, but we I. in retrospect, the scale of it was something that none of us had experience with on paper. We thought we could work at all out. It added up the made sense, but when we got into it at at Disney many times, I thought. I'm really glad we're here and not in any other studio because as you said. We had we had hundreds and hundreds of thousands of pieces of artwork. Putting the end of just the frame blowups. Every individual frame of the electronic world blown up shot in seventy millimeter blown-up. They were when they were stacked up. They filled two entire moving vans. Well I mean it was tons and tons and tons of images. And It? It! Didn't Freak Disney out? Because, they said Yeah. We're used to handling millions of pieces of artwork, and in the end that was totally the strength production-wise of the project because. We, all of us working on it. We're familiar with animation or even the live action people had quite a bit of experience in animation, so we sort of took the best from live action, and then we turn the whole live action movie into an animated movie, and once it was. At that level, you could treat it like mass production. You could get just keep multiplying the number of teams. Working on the individual seems. And and there was a system there. We weren't reinventing the wheel that system existed. People knew how to do you know animated effects? and. How to work with these numbers of? Probably I had to be over a million pieces in the end and the funny thing about it is. How efficient was because? We ended up doing all of the special effects in Tron one in half the time that it took to do them in Toronto to. And correct me if I got this. Get any of this wrong. I want to see if I can kind of lay out for my listeners, sort of a general approach to the electronic world sequences, which took up more almost an entire hour of Tron I think about somewhere around the realm of fifty three to fifty five minutes something like that of a footage in.

"Despite making a certain amount of noise against it does tron have an opinion on whether video games are are good or bad are either of these films like manifestly about like fact video games on the world i wouldn't necessarily say the effective video games but the thought of living in a virtual space is something that both are concerned about in both have different attitudes about because that idea is so new intron their early eighties of such a strange idea to even be in this space whereas currently in the year two thousand eighteen where we spend so much time in the virtual world or at least in the internet world or not our devices and we're so comfortable in our relationship with machines could be the idea they don't waste of this play of a place transcendent or better than the one we're in being built there's appeal that it's such a natural thing for us to engage in a way that wasn't true tron one thing that interests me is how both films inject stakes into these video games like a certain like human stakes because it's not real you know but in both tron and ready player one real damage can be done to you of sort in this video game world obviously there's d resing in the tron world and then in ready player one you lose basically your your bitcoin and you're you know you're all all the things you can lose those eero out out as as what they call it so like it's like injecting the idea of life or death stakes in two around where life and death doesn't really mean the same thing i mean i think that tron kind of plays the in a dream you die in real life game like people literally are risking life and death i think ready player one the whole idea of zeroing out might.
