"I guess today is justin. Waldron co founder and president of play-cup justin is a pioneer of the social gaming industry after he co-founded zinger at age nineteen and he has continued to build games ever since in our conversation. We cover. How justin sees the future of gaming as a social platforms evolve. How gaming maybe the next tool for content creation how plato has approached aligning incentives for game creators and players. As talk of the metaverse becomes more mainstream. It's fascinating to hear directly from those around him. I hope you enjoy my conversation. With justin waldron suggesting you have bilton interesting companies in the world past and present and also operating the gaming space where i'm personally so fascinated because of the way in which it allows people to interact now across the globe across whole number of different platforms and it gives you a window into how people are behaving online. That's pretty unique. So i can't wait to go all over the place with you today. I was thinking about the right place to start and before he record. You mentioned something that maybe as an interesting on ramp. Which is this concept very popular concept these days of the metaverse which we think of as some sort of new digital world we all have some digital representation and can do everything we want with all the people we want. I think you have slightly different conception of how he might get from where we are today to that seifi future. Maybe you could begin by outlining. What you think is happening. and why. it's so interesting. If you think about the way that things started off online we started representing each other with text and when we started in the chat rooms that we had over a decade ago. We moved toward images to represent her avatar. Then we move towards social networks. We started being able to add all this context. Who are your friends. What are your hobbies. What do you like to do now. We're representing ourselves with video. Live video and audio. Over the internet and we keep upgrading bringing our real selves online. While i see that there's this one movement happening on the side of the metaverse which is creating a world that's so compelling everybody wants to move to pack up their bags leave the real world and go to the new virtual world. I think that what we've actually been doing a slowly migrating ourselves in pieces into this virtual space without realizing it and because it's happening gradually we look at ourselves on zoom in. It feels so natural. But we're actually in these virtual rooms together and we don't really think about it and so one of the questions we've been thinking about at waco is what does it mean to be in these new virtual spaces and what types of things are people wanna do their video now. What is it next year. What is it the year after that and we think that these spaces will continue to be augmented in ways that improve our ability to interact so to your earlier point one of the most interesting things on the internet is every time we create a new way to interact. We get a lot of unexpected effects out of it and so video audio live streaming in communications. I think we're just starting to see how that's opening up industries globally everywhere over the last few years and i think that what's next is if we can make it easier to reach out and touch interact with each other and so video. Has this sort of flat nature to it and as we start to augment it and we start creating ways to play. We can actually do things that we wouldn't be able to do. And realize and so. We see this as a canvas. An empty room and our job is to imagine what toys would people want in this room and if electronic arts mission was to see if a computer can make you cry. What can we do now that these people are together in this space. How can we have a game facilitate feelings between people in create new ways of of actually connecting. I think there's another way to approach the metaverse. Where a few years from. Now we're we're on a video shot service and it looks nothing like the video chat service run today because it's so augmented from the pieces and we've added to it. The sort of older video only audio only version of it just seems completely foreign to us. It's happened so gradual that we never realized we were moving there all along one of the things that i think is really interesting about where we might be going. Metaverse wise is harder versus software the dominant vision of the metaverse. Ready player. One where the guys wearing a oculus. And he's in haptic feedback suit and he's on omnitracs treadmill and we literally try to dump our physical body and brain into this new space as you may have a different conception of how this might play out where hardware and intense feedback from hardware may not be necessary. Maybe it'll come to but just say a little bit about how you think about the vision of this software wise versus hardware wise. I think there's a lot to be said for increasing the fidelity of experience with technology. And and you know. I'm excited about virtual reality. I'm very excited about augmented reality. Glasses that we might get where we can look around the world and have all this information at our fingertips. What i'm starting to realize is because we already live in this world where we're spending our time in this video and we can already augment this video software world. We already have the ability to create that hud today. And i think that this is something that just sort of popped up on us. And we didn't realize the moment we're spending more time communicating over video. Then we are walking around in the world. These augmented reality glasses. Were waiting for is the moment that the opportunity to create. That kind of experience has arrived without realizing. I think that's really powerful. And i think it doesn't require any behavioral change from us. It's friction lists. We just need to keep using the services we're using and they're gonna keep expanding direction. These these are compatible right. I think there's room for this super in depth fantasy like experience..

"But i don't think it's been the quality of his bat. Honestly the problem with kelvin. Coyotes impacting who in the field. Well we'll get there but the killick problem to me is not that there been bad at bats. It's not an approach. You can draw walks. He's missing strikes He is swinging and missing at the pitch is. You've got to hit. That is significantly more troubling to me. If he was just swinging at pitches outside zone like all right. Well his kid. They'll get this figured out right. You're going to have to relearn the strike zone. Learn the patterns. They're throwing strikes misses that data did not expect to see that that is a bit of a challenge and then brock. Yeah he goes out in the field he makes a mistake or crashes in a in a bauer. I don't know whose fault that is. But the reaction and the sort of public the public display of emotion like that is rarely seen in baseball. I love that he's competitive. I wonder how long you can burn that candle. Yup but you have a skipper that does want you know his players to enhance that. He's not one that throws a bradley wet towel on him. So come on. Gosh i've had like what is going on with you. I don't know you punch bowl season because he's been repressing. His actual anger about this. Is that it all right. We'll do that hold on brooke. You've clearly been not yourself today and i. I don't know if that was the fact that you were too afraid to say sack fumble to ed iran or you know you feel less of a man because of a you had a good game. You're two for to suzie. Blue and shorts yelling at ucla. Fans that what he was. Yeah feels i coach. I watched kobdo your sister blue shirt. Jeez so yeah okay got stomped yeah. Great so brock. You're too though with games. Yes yes a new recording. It's a new day now. I don't know where is it like arguably the worst loss in the history of the husky program. Strange to me too. Because how long has it been since the peach bowl for sixteen sixteen. This is twenty four or five years right about the time that all of the kids who were watching the peach bowl and like the great recruiting that comes from it and all that they should be really paying dividends right now right now. Ramon left after three years ago. The league peterson left and amex change. Since i heard all about how that was going to lead them to greatness. I haven't seen a lot of good recruiting classes. Yeah got sam hewer. Fortunately didn't get a couple. Yeah okay well. what's going on man. That was up in the booth at the rose bowl. I'm calling the game. Game started about a half hour ahead of time. They drive down the field. They opening drive score touchdowns they're up seven seven three. Okay i look at the phone again. Halftime oh seven. Three still yikes. That's not good. Look at the phone at the end of third on my gosh. they're losing. they're going to lose they. In the autumn it did lose and it's on the pedestal. One of the three worst losses in program history. I don't think i can put it with the ucla loss. Ninety the costume national title where they were double digit favorites the beavers loss where they were thirty five point favorites in nineteen eighty five. The bigger spread. I think this was twenty or twenty one point so montana is a legitimate. Fcs title contender. They're they're not an awful fc team but it's right there. It's the bronze-medal or silver-metal be it the opener and be at a time where you need to create goodwill with your boosters and your fans in the jimmy lake era for the first time having fans in the stands after an empty stadium from a year ago. It was absolutely what could not happen and it did happen. Well you watch going back and watching it i did. Why did it happen. I think there's a few few factors first of all. They play good enough defense to win. They weren't elite. They weren't as aggressive as i would've loved for them to be but you know they did what they had to do. Defensively stopped in. Fcs team to win that game offensively. It was who. Let's go back to our shame. Waldron little checklist would know. This was going to be it. I didn't write it on my legal pad when it was kind of your genesis. Saw asked me to remember it. I don't remember all the things. I said managing relationships whole new language and imos to of it. Last year they ran. The ball decently every single. Back back you're supposed to have the best offensive lying going bottom line from coaching standpoint. From just a pure empirical tape montana. Out-schemed them out coached them on that side of it and ultimately out hit him. She coached by montana. And yes. tommy haas bobby. how how. How good coach. Ben quality coach veteran staff and the oakland or something who. I don't think any different but he got fired by. Unlv correct yeah. Correct took montana to two national title games. Huskies called one of them. Yeah you speak heisel yeah yours. Neuheisel's staff at washington. He knows washington knows the magnitude of coming in that building. And doing it. They buy outcoached just simply xs no scheme lice. Stunned they slanted. they twisted. They bullets they brought people and the number of times washington's guys up front or grasping at air like they're double teaming triple team in a times a. d. tackle with two other guys free. They're not communicating. They're whipping yeah. They they got. They got clobbered at the line of scrimmage. And you know you're down four wide receivers they. They weren't scared of anybody. You were running out there the play man coverage instill load up. The box severely disappointed. The ball did not get to the perimeter more. I can't believe how has been quiet right now. How did you even watch a game. I i was calling the. I can't even imagine trying to spend another second on that game. The it doesn't matter how they lost that game. They lost matters. it's over. they lost that. There's no conceivable world. We're a team with an offensive line. That has a top ten pick on it. That is widely consensus considered to be the best offensive line in the conference with a veteran quarterback a second year in a system and undefeated team last. Like there's no scenario where it's okay always that game. Then let's ask the obvious. Question is the big sky. The better conference could rolled out a home opener where their quarterback had an eight point four. Qbr three picks no touchdowns. The defense had one sack. No interceptions right so. This team was a complete disaster. Let's ask the next question. Should he be the quarterback. If sam hewer were quarterbacking that game. I'd i don't know how much different the outcome is is. They were so bad because they were so bad at the scrimmage. Because jimmy's whole philosophy is to run the ball in play defense in the could not run the ball sweeps. I just don't understand why other than the it's the huskies. This none of this seems like who. Sam hewer does. And i don't. I'm not trying to start controversy there at all. I totally understand that. He is washington born and bred. And the reason you damon stayed here. And i'm sure a lot of the same and by all accounts great. I'm so happy for that here in washington but it really seems like a tough fit. Well he loves his teammates. He's played with many of them both at kennedy and on the seven on seven circuit winning national championships. One and lots of games turning the program.

"Off. Hey everybody knew that. John donovan was gonna face plant. That wasn't a surprise shane. Waldron doesn't come with those expectations right. Did you ever work with any first coordinators. Who that's a good question in my years. Let's see my dad know. Scott lenihan no had called plays it with the seahawks was holmgren. They ran the whole show. Gil high school. Tom moore was tom more. I think you've been around us nine hundred so no no. I roll through that. No i just had the experience though. I mean much better. One because donovan was actually a penn state and inflamed out miserably there But jake pete's who comes from the sean mcvay tree is who are the orion at lsu hired in you know probably even more pressure frankly on ed to get that one right that go and not so good. Couldn't couldn't run it particularly well. But i don't think it was terrible. Calls or poor adjustments like the like the u. dub game. I think it was just more of. Wow yeah we don't we don't match up with these guys in our group upfront. Not very good but there is a. You had true. Certain for jake pete's and talk to him about talk to jake. Jake what's going on. Pete's is his name jake. Jake shakes p. e. t. s. p. e. Tci believe but. Yeah jake pete's yes. Yeah longtime annalisa. Honestly like a very parallel. I'm sorry it's confusing. Actually peel the onion. Back is a very compelling parallel because he forever it'd been an analyst and worked in. His resume was rich and smart guy. And it had been with nick. Sabin few years been with you. Know background with. Sean mcveigh had. Nfl college experience like checks. Every box can lecturing. Waldron checks every box. He's been wonderful places. He's had immense experience he's more and should be more than ready for this opportunity but it is still the first time ever doing it and one of the things i've heard you talk about brockton. Maybe into greater detail is just the rhythm that those guys get in and sort of chess match. Can you be a play ahead. Those are what the league ones do. They are constantly a step ahead and on top of that in just as important especially in this one on sunday in particular. What kind of adjustments can you make. Your personnel has not played together with people hitting you on the other side. You've got a pretty accomplished group that you're playing against defensively with some talented people who likewise didn't play a lot of folks in the preseason and is probably going to throw some things at you pretty innovative defensive coordinator it at indianapolis has done good things so not only the play ahead which was cliche. But it's then series two series making adjustments. So you don't have a new york giants game like last year where you get to the end of the game and go man. We really didn't. We didn't really addressed in thinking we could do this. And it's not working and instead of spending four quarters trying to do it or play last gasp effort in the final. Three or four minutes. Hey let's make that adjustment in the first quarter. Let's make that and have that kind of communication is a staff as a group as a system so we can make those adjustments. Shane waldron as we said really important. Spot very difficult challenges if you were to start going through enlisting all of the challenges ahead of them and this is not saying. He can't overcome any of them at all but just to give a sense of how difficult this guy's job is one. The pete ross issue right to teaching a new system to people right whether it's the language of the concepts. He's got an import this new system. So he's got no it and then he's gotta teach three he's got a call the plays for. He's gotta have a sense of how to adjust along the way to what the defense is doing and then five he's got a he's got have a conviction in big moments about what he wants to do. And what plays he wants for the most important moments of every game yes and then add in the creativity and then add in the personal skills and everything else. It is a heck of a job on what he's getting paid but it's probably not enough to do everything that he's being asked to do right now. And oh by the way your margin zero. The ceilings championship are bust. So this is not. Oh you know i did some things. A lot of these coordinators love to put together and their resumes his interview for jobs and they work their way up and they build on their experiences. Yeah you know we. We did this with the most explosive plays. We were one of the top five scoring offenses. We're top three rushing offense. No no no no no done all that all those boxes have been checked by your predecessors. It's about one thing. It's about making sure that your quarterback is an mvp because if he's mvp you can win the super bowl and if he's not the mvp. I don't know how you win the super bowl with with the supporting cast around him in the division in the conference here in early so if russell is not an mvp or doesn't play or is it in. That doesn't get a- russell wilson. I'll say it this way if russell wilson does not get. Mvp votes this year which he's never gotten they will not win a super bowl. I think i could say that. Definitively i then let me ask a follow up to that. What does russell need to do to get. Mvp votes put up waxman civil music back and forth. They have now. What do i mean. Wacky phenomenal numbers through the entirety of a season. He's done it for two thirds of the season for along. What does he does. He put up wacky numbers. I don't mean what are the numbers have to be but what parts of the game needs to be successful for him to have them. It's touchdowns interceptions it's yards. It's seventy percent completion. It's things that he has done for massive stretches of his career but it doesn't mean they have to throw the ball a certain percentage of the time. I don't think necessarily that no yards. I don't know. I throws for four thousand four thousand four hundred yards four thousand yards. But it's thirty five touchdowns two to five interceptions and they win twelve or thirteen games in this division. He's going to be the. Mvp going to be then bp. I mean those are the silly kind of numbers that aaron put up last year. The mahomes puts up those. You've got to live in that stratosphere. And i think that that is honestly. You mentioned all of those manage relationships. There's lots of changing the whole language. Yep absolutely being a step ahead and executing adjusting all of those things are one hundred percent true but ultimately the bottom line is your is your quarterback and his play because he's got to be a elite elite for this team for this in this division to to win enough games to to say shame. Walter he did it he was. He was super successful. That's a that's a hard spot to be and there's hardly any more altitude to climb right not to heap even more pressure on him or to order. Present this in a negative way but this is a job. You're inherited man. You've got tenure guy that's a future hall of famer and by the way the has been statistically fairy very could and he has been the second most efficient passer in the history of the league and i think one more more and more games through whatever nine seasons anybody else in the curious about some of that though because one of the things that supposedly is so different. Here's that instead of russ throwing it deep down the field right where he needs to make the occasional great throw. The idea here is there are going to be more throws right but that aren't quite as challenging. Correct how do they. How do they do that. Without it being dinkum dunk but without it being too risky. Because it's still shots are gonna come off your play action. Well then run the ball absolutely they do in the system. Does it. Shanahan does it. Mcvay doesn't know flu or does it not going to run the ball. He is nowhere. Close the circle. You gotta have balanced circle. Toughness you do. You have to balance and you have have plenty shot. Plays off of all of those looks and yeah there should be more gimmes. That's that's how i think. I'll characterize him over the course. Maybe someone open. That's exactly right. It's what trump mcveigh. When he evaluates himself and i remember this last year doing a couple rams games and mcvay goes back and especially in his first fifteen that he spends a lot of time on right in and adapts and tweaks each and every week. He looks at his first. Fifteen and says okay. How many times was your primary open today. Just give you write that. Gimme that completion. Is there because i set you up for success and this shouldn't and practice you can script for success in practice you can set up this play versus this defense and you know you get this guy open and we can script for success. The old west coast system. Bill walsh mike. Holmgren was under. Hey man we're going to have a very efficient practice..

"When it came to the earl thomas thing so i can't very well criticized them for this but i will say the one thing that it leaves completely unknown is the one guy that is probably the most important figure on this team and that shane waldron. I heard you saying that on your show. This week and i was like. Oh isn't it. I kinda i kinda like it. And that's not even your bbn bias. No mascot the knights of that's right. Yeah okay nights. The roundtable gotcha. Gotcha got hired trajectory of the seahawks future hinges on shane. waldron success. i mean. I think it's not surprising that it'd be an end. Guy is in charge of how the seahawks go for that now. It is incredibly surprised. But don't you think it's true. Yes i mean he is. He is essentially not only being asked to run the offense this year as a first time coordinator with a new offense to this scheme with a new with quarterback and coach. Who's never worked with and doesn't really have any relationship with heading into this and if it doesn't go well. There's a decent chance that that quarterback and coach will divorce forever altering the future of seattle wohl you thought about all that means the bbn guy so he's probably saw smart did in the interview process. He probably put those pieces together. It's like wow okay. Is this person geog- if i'm gonna get in in the incubator of coordinator yup. Let's just go all in. Let's just get thrown right into the inferno. Let's just you know. All the pressure. All the expectation all of the relationship managing than i gotta do as well know by the way a head coach. It's going to be in my headset. Undoubtedly in indianapolis on sunday in big moments. And yeah and russell wilson right on the other side who. I've got to make sure he's he's a happy guy this year and make sure i take care of them all. Gosh yeah there's there is a tremendous amount on his plate. What does she. what is your experience with. First time coordinators. What do you think john donovan last.

"I think you know from a from just a hours law. I mean the the scene between low key and mobias the kind of psycho analysis Seeing there there was just refining that dialogue because that that is just pure character. Study of of loyalty but I was never sweating. That that that stuff was really fun to to write in to to do I think the you know how the the the writer's room really you know as as as you get into more police so to speak in episode two. They really rose to the challenge and helping build all that stuff now. It was a difficult to kind of the drama of the show but also kind of low key as a person kind of like hanging in to fight for himself as a variant that that shouldn't be erased because it seems like that's also where a lot of drama would come from a show like this drama of low key as a character as a person as an individual that doesn't want to be a raced has to prove himself right. Yeah who who are you. Where are you routing for. Moore you supposed to be rooting for the bad guy. The tv the good guys. The show is called loki. Is he the hero or the tv the heroes. They say they are wrote. I hope that everybody feels a little bit. Like their heads spinning. Because i think that's keefe yields and and we we. We were trying to craft a story that really put you in those shoes as you watched and that makes sense and we have no proof that the tv is entirely good at this point. Only what we've seen i'm curious. What kind of integration. You had with the writing staff wanda this. I mean obviously you worked on doctor. Strange in the in the multi verse of madness. We know that one is going be in there. They talk about nexus. Allot in your first episode. And we know that. Wanda is an excess being. Were you working at all with that. Writing staff Their their writer's room was right next door to ours. And so you know. Every day i'd walked by and began in see they had so much cool shit on their walls. It'd be like The show's going to be so good. We were if anything. We're like all right. What they're doing over there is so crazy and so weird interesting. I like that almost read us to be like look guys like. Let's let's take big swings like they are Jack shafer the head writer. Wanda vision became a pal of mines in her eyes. Certain certainly communicated and stuff. And i think the to the extent that creatives within the mcu can can be friendly and can sort of you know at least be aware of what others are doing. You know it'll help the universe state at much more cohesive. Well i absolutely love the show.

"waldron" Discussed on The Gravel Ride. A cycling podcast
"Just different philosophies. Yeah so we're all. This culminated recently in the helmet coming to market. Is there anything you want to mention about that helmet that we haven't covered pressure that pressure a lot of requests from our destroyers especially in europe to to look at the roadside things on the dirt guy through through end the great got the man we actually started. The name was. The nickname was dirty road and we saw that as something that was much more galley than if we said we're going to go try and put a helmet on on a tour de france rider. We got a couple of helmets that are in that category. The no and the grit the uno is like one hundred dollar helmet. It's nice it was actually designed by guard. Bueller hilgart was the head of design for jiro for. He was zero for twenty years. I don't know how long he was headed design. Any freelance is now and he helped us with that design. Because as you know is primarily amount biker in when likes gravity arline had lead lean to that way for a long time and then the grid was designed by alan for who i worked with quite a bit. And he's former bell. Specialized work done several specialized road helmets. But we really work on these thinking more towards the grabbed market than the road market. Is it osu who we are more than just saying like i said we're gonna we're gonna go sponsor i was like saying sky because they're dead and they're not a team anymore but it's something like that and more to to what we are not and you certainly have some great athletes riding the helmets on the gravel. Seen former guest and friend of the pod phenomenon is a great friend of kelly's she's just super chill and rides like a monster. You know what she did it. The exile these shows that and just a great attitude and somebody. That's funder just watch and cedar progress. Yeah yeah it was a great racing debut for the helmet for share appreciate that..
"waldron" Discussed on The Gravel Ride. A cycling podcast
"Looks like a hurry up. Nanomaterials white you got the black. Eps around a bit. And is that our side crushes. When you hit another material that's meant to crush insane energy laterally away from red in those geometric structures rather than a smack crack seeing a aggressive crack with multiple different materials there to help this that energy your that resonates with me and it's it's hard to visualize conversation at times for the listener potentially but if you think about that just think the analogy works for me where it just progressively becoming more and more supportive as my head is unfortunately impacting the ground or dirt. Wherever i'm right a lot of your tax are small and so you don't even get into the part but it has to really get harder and harder to stop that big hit and that's my kinda my complaint. The way that our testing is that were only testing for those big hits when we have a lot of hits. Were actually hurting people by doing it. The way we're doing it so we we just gotta look at it from all aspects rather than just this one test that we do in the test lab. Yeah i managed to bring my own bell. This pandemic on a gravel ride. So it's resonating with me that having a it wasn't a super devastating crash but i had one of those impacts that i definitely wrong. My bell definitely like maybe. It was not concussed but needed to be escorted home by a friend. Some level of brain trauma happening despite the white but softened happen at a surprisingly low amount of g forces. And and that's why i keep talking about need to start managing those impacts from all levels not just from the highest levels and you said that you said before the testing is just very test one thing and it's easy to design around that one thing without really thinking about the athlete and the impacts are tests are based on tests that were done enough in the nineteen seventy-three where we dropped cadavers on their heads and measured for skull fracture. Because we didn't know enough to measure the brain trauma and at that time it took three hundred gs took the energies to crack the school..

"Impact material. didn't work as multi impact but it works so now i can buy the code and eds. And i'm finding i'm able to lower the density in the helmet. Were probably talk about. Which is the grid so much that. I was shocked at the first round of testing that i was expecting the typical results where i gotta put way too hard the higher density. I'm in a place that i don't really want to put it. But by putting the right materials in the right combinations. I'm getting better results than than i expected. And so that sorta rica moment happened early in the process and allow you then to pursue different elements of the design. Which was that easy. We actually took originally took that structure. That i talked about and put it in an arrow helmet and the other way i go with this stuff is i can if you look at our top. A helmet helmet. I think i've sold one hundred of them. So i don't think you've seen a pro. I think we have it on the danish road team so unless she been there copenhagen lately. I'm not sure seeing this album. But if you actually look at it and you a cross section of it. It's one of the how much you've ever seen which was interesting for me as an engineer that i could actually get this thing to work and pass the test but because passing the test is not my goal my saving lives media cheeky about that. But it really is what we give a shit about. We we want people get on their bikes and ride. I want to get on my bike and ride more. I've been helicopter alberto before. We want that abbott. But when i went back to you more realistic thicknesses. And i could drive those densities down. Now i'm getting the results. I want a not only linear impacts but rotational impacts and skip back. We're doing a lot testing an outside labs so we took some of our helmets. We put in myths in it. We put in what we call wrong. Which is our low density layer of that material developed by a professor out of london we put in like five different anti rotation systems and we tested them against each other and they all do interesting job a little better here a little better there sometimes. This system works sometime. This work better with consistently worked better. Was we threw in a helmet with extremely low density in it. It's actually helmet. We sell in europe but can't sell here. Because the density too low and that helmet consistently performed way about her in rotational forces. So all these systems that we put in help but what really matters is author shit next your head. Let's get these things to be more crushing and more pillows a little bit overrated. But i just get that stuff that will crush next year head. So when i'm talking about using nanomaterial in cone had structures and basically talking about away in a much smaller area to give phone density down where it's really making a difference per you during that crash. Is there a way to articulate upon impact. How akali helmet performs versus a major brand helmet in terms of how it crushes out the materials work. Sure have savings of i can say. Continue to go back to that phone density thing. Most people don't put as much energy as we do in in trying to find how to get to that lower density so basically that densities too hard that thing smack in it's gonna crack cracking is fine in a big hit and helmet because that's releasing energy. But what i really want is. I wanted to crush and i wanted to crushing equally and then by having those those metric shapes and that center. It's actually if you look at it..

"Looking for stuff that can help us make the next stab and with technology from guy from australia called cone head where you got the geometric shapes inside these helmets and they crash the but to get more specific to answering your question. Some of the difficulties. When you start talking about road helmets ventilation so important right so getting big-band skating airflow through when you do that. You have to really crank up the density of the foam to get the enough to stop the impact to according to the standards. When you do that let me put it another way. Start with this. I believe all helmets or too hard. We're hurting people by the phone. Densities we need to get the phone. Densities down it's based on how the interpretation of the standards are which are built to take the worst of the worst crashes. We're not doing enough to deal with where the majority of crashes are which according to a study at the imperial college london eighty percent of all bicycle. Accidents are below one hundred six. Jesus yet alls. I gotta do to pass a test and sell you. A helmet is go to the test lab and make sure it doesn't go over three hundred gs now. Three hundred gs is close to death already. How do we address all those big hits but also the majority of those hits and so that's where that's where a lot of my time gets focused on his not specifically for a genre helmet per se. But how do we lower the desi. How do we put stuff next. Year headed softer. How do we start reducing impact at zero cheese so now jump back to the your question of how we deal with the gravel helmets again now. I'm battling. I got to put a lot of foam in a small space. Which means i got. Jack up the densities. What's cool even though a lot of people don't know callie we're known within the industry and the other companies know each other but getting a reputation is somebody who wants to try to allergy. We get people coming to us all the time saying. Hey you wanna try this and my answer is always the same if it works right hugh bad. I'm going to try it. And we were approach.

That's okay but i just put in your hands and if you don't want to talk to move on and put it in their hands ago. What is this and then through the next few days. I only have one guy actually put it by hand and walk on everybody else. All right what's going on and then we would explain what was happening with the involving process and why we do what we do and show. The results have been testing. Was it always in the back of your head to move into the cycling market. I was more of a cyclists. Than i was when i started doing. I if i get involved with something. I want to get into the sports. So when we started making skid bites guards. I went about motorcycles. Start riding dirt bikes now. I routed to kati in an jitter and and but cycling was definitely more my heart so it wasn't that i was necessarily looking to do that but we had found a way to build false. Y'all helmets that. I believe and i drink by own kool aid. That when you put that on your head using that technology you're putting on a safer product on we had so the next thing of course was to do a full face down so we did that and the media. The bike industry was more welcoming. The motor industry is great. But it's complex. It's distributors all. Had their own helmet brands so in our industry got for the different distributors.

"Was there a particular market opportunity that you saw something that you felt wasn't being done at the bigger companies. No not yet. That's not really worried happened at the time when especially so i had moved on from helmets and eventually became the head of engineering specialized for everything for bikes. Mostly what i concentrated on was the carbide projects. They i worked on the tarmac in robea and things like that other guys who had much better frame experience than i do. You know the geometry. So i would go over to the factories and work with the carbon lay ups and things like that and we would make it and break it. I still have tarmac. frame number. two doesn't look anything like what went to production. It had split talk to who knew that was uci illegal but so my people see it all the time. It doesn't say anything on it so it's got carbon top tube and changed in the seeks to and and then the underbody aluminum so the idea was it was gonna be nice. Chris feel the aluminum. But where your body touches. You're gonna have that forgiving carbon-fiber conceptually feel and so. I still have that bike when people see me out on it. I'm not a big rodeo ride. A lot on the road. But they're like what the hell is that because it's totally recognizable but it's pretty cool so actually less specialized primarily because they were going through some transitions at the time they had wanted. Transfer a lot of the engineering to taiwan. And i wasn't interested in that job. I had my first kid. I didn't want to travel. Did not want to travel at all. And so i actually resigned from the position. There was a great experience. It took me nine months to leave. Because i didn't have another job. I hired my replacement.

The latest On The Indonesian Plane Crash
"Boxes from a passenger plane that crashed into the sea soon after takeoff in indonesia on saturday have now been located authorities. A confident that they will be able to retrieve the two flight. Recorders the boeing seven three seven was carrying sixty two people when it vanished from radar on its journey borneo. We'll get the latest now with greg. Waldron who is age managing editor a flight global. Greg joins us now on the line from singapore greg. What is the latest information we have about this plane well. Currently sauvage operations are still underway located the wreck of the aircraft and they continue to pull up debris from the aircraft. They put up. A part of an engine has well. I think that happened last night. So they really. The aircraft appears to be fairly shallow water and they know exactly where it is so retrieving the flight data recorder and the cockpit. Voice recorder. Shouldn't be that much of an issue. I would expect that news maybe today or perhaps this week we'll see that'd been reports from fishermen on the ground that they heard a big impact there was a big wave and so on. Do we get the impression that the flights broke up in the sky or on impact wants too early to speculate on. I saw a report quoting an official in indonesia's saying that they believed the aircraft may have been intact when it hit the water. But it's really too soon to say what the condition of the aircraft was when it came down they'll have to be released thorough investigation to determine exactly what happens probably too soon to say exactly what happened. But i'd imagine that if you in the water into the senate he'd certainly here's something because it's quite a big aircraft just to be clear. This was not a mocks. A budding max. Certainly not though. The aircraft that crashed was a seven three seven. Five hundred was about twenty. Three years old formerly served with the united airlines. And it's very different aircraft from the max. Max is a much later updated version of the seven. Three seven two generations later in fact so technologically. It's quite a different aircraft but for boeing. Which of course is suffering all of these problems over the max. It's just not good news. Well certainly not going said a challenging few years with the max. Of course one of the max. Crashes happened in indonesia was a lion that was operating it but you know again Every crash is unique in. Its own way. They'll have to be a detailed investigation into why this specific crash occurred You know these things happen in boeing will be participating in the investigation will be the airline indonesian authorities. The us faa so a lot of people will get involved to figure out what happened but again. This aircraft is largely unrelated to the max indonesia's flight safety record is the worst in the world. Why is that. What certainly had a challenging twenty years and flight safety you major crisis you have the crash the other day you had a. Qc eighty five one. The asia crashing twenty fourteen. And you've also had of course the liner max crash in twenty eight t know. We talked about earlier on. But i would say that the challenge with no nesia is. They have made some progress in improving safety. But i think there's still some cultural issues. They really need to create a culture of safety within the airlines where you know procedures are followed very closely where you know rules are followed very closely and there's no corners cut. Now it'll be. I think very helpful greg. Thank you very much indeed. That's quick waldron from flight.
Kevin Feige's 'Star Wars' Movie to Be Written By 'Doctor Strange 2' and 'Loki' Writer Michael Waldron
"Kevin feige his star wars stuff he was. You know there's always news about him. Doing star. wars movie was as dream. Kevin feige the the leader of marvel. He will be doing a stars movie and it will be along with doctor. Strange to doctor strange in the multi verse of madness Writer michael waldron who. We found out falls upon us on twitter. I don't know if your listener. Mr waldron who also is doing loki. Assure star wars movie with kevin feige listener. Let's let's get him on the pot did bring him. Dougherty to is a producer. Let's don't take my avatar walden joke either. So we we saw today. I don't know if he's barstool fan but yeah. If you're a listener go please come on. Let's talk about this. We'll talk about anything. But he's a star wars movie tapped to right. He's got a big deal now. Overall deal with disney obviously that's three separate entities for disney awesome. Good for him grads to that And then of course kevon foggy called the see him doing a star wars. Always kinda rumors could kevin feige takeover kathleen kennedy ever step down or she just kind of ran out of interest in doing. It seems it's more fabric baloney thing that's going to happen. Seems as though they're the ones who are going to be kind of leading the charge leading the way though catherine kennedy still there obviously as they've Just completely overhauled. How they're going to look at star wars mostly through series now with some movies And the other star wars news. This this is more of a rumor. It's been shot down that route donor. Junior won't play admiral thron however they've said that robert junior has been looked at for a star wars role in the future which makes sense because now stars and sitting that marvel thing with there's so many future properties they're gonna probably have some actors and actors that people are like. Oh that's that's quite the big name That would be a big one forever. Junior joining star wars would be quite the big name and actually. I don't think he would be a great thrown thrown of an intriguing. I still think. Speaking of the mickelson's i still think wars. Nicholson just play the character. He voiced willie because he was just the perfect of i can't think of another thrown voice But to cool pieces of star wars news here both marvel related. I think we should call them I think what a coin now for. This is the f. Cubed baloney favreau and fi. so the f. cubed alliance i think is gonna make a lot of great stores content in the future and i think that the one thing that Foggy is really going to add to this. As far as the stars movie universe cohesion right. The vendors undertaking is an insane thing. Really in retrospect like we look back on him. Like i made a bunch from the cool right but like to kind of loop together. All his moves into cohesive matter and not only that but like kind of build and make the franchise so much better as went along. I think is extremely impressive. And the fact that he's able to make these movies without feeling superhero fatigue is also even more impressive. And that's where. I think marvel in and star wars are kind of in the same lane as far as like you know when it will. When is it too much like when you down content. I think he he knows what he's doing. In that

Why Are Scientists Asking Hikers to Stop Stacking Rocks?
"If you've been out on a hiking trail lately you've you've probably noticed them. Suddenly popping up everywhere. Small intentionally stacked piles of rocks. Called Cairns and environmentalists worldwide are increasingly increasingly alarmed because moving rocks can have numerous unintended consequences for insects animals. And even the land itself people have been in stacking rocks since the dawn of time typically four directional or burial purposes such structures have been found in Greenland Northern Canada and Alaska and were built by Anita People's for specific purposes like navigation to indicate a food source or to warn of danger. More recently park officials began creating them on hiking trails else especially potentially confusing pads to help ensure that hikers don't get lost in eighteen ninety six a man named Waldron Bates created a specific civic style of hiking Karen in Acadia National Park. The Bates Cairns as they became known consisted of a rectangular stone balanced top two legs and then topped opt with one stone pointing to the trail. These Cairns were replaced by standard ones in the nineteen fifties and sixties but the park began rebuilding the historic Bates Cairns in the nineteen ninety S. Acadia no contains a mixture of both. What's concerning scientists? Today is the new practice of creating rock piles as an art. Form form or for alluring social media posts because stacking rocks is not an innocuous practice many insects and mammals head under rocks to live reproduce reduce or just escape. They're predators so move a rock and you might destroy a home stack a few. And you may have just exposed the hunted to their hunters. And and while that may sound melodramatic whether you're stacking rocks in the woods on the beach or in the desert your actions could inadvertently knock out an entire colony. Or in the worst case scenario threaten and endangered species some rock stacking fans note that they're being responsible by returning their rocks to the spots where they found them after after creating and then disassembling artwork however the second move rocks you may compromise species habitat in an unrecoverable manner. In addition moving rocks in any fashion contributes to soil erosion as the dirt ones protectively packed under them is now loosened and more prone to washing or blowing away. Why should you come upon? Stacked rocks especially in national parks. Leave him alone. And if you're hiking don't automatically follow where they seemed point. The National Park Service recommends checking with Park officials before setting out on a hike as every park has different rules about kearns. You wouldn't want to remove those intentionally set as navigational AIDS nor would you want to follow those. That may have been randomly. If artistically assembled by visitors in the end let your actions be guided by the important principle principle. Leave no trace.
New virus infects more than 7,700 in China, other countries
"China corona virus hot but more the more hot I'm looking at the South China morning post the headlights from a newspaper distinguished newspaper now in the hands of the Communist Party it's owned by Ali Baba which is a subset corona virus desk time to one seventy cases exceed seventy seven hundred China faces bigger epidemic than sars in quote grave Carl coronavirus outbreak this is of concern Hong Kong nurses call in sick in protest a refusal to close borders sees the headlights right now it's morning it's Thursday morning Chad in addition we have the report of free confirmed we'll had evacuees in Japan with the virus McDonald's is closed all of its branches in China I saw a report earlier about Starbucks closing I saw a report earlier about Google either evacuating close there been various reports all day of their lives stopping service to China I know I saw the British air stopping service they'll be more or limiting the service and then this strange deeply concerning rotavirus props WHL World Health Organization U. N. super body to consider a merchants growing evidence says the sub head of human to human transmission outside China they must been reading Twitter forcing the WHL tour of reevaluate last week's decision not to declare a global health emergency there's the clue right there what I just read you and I go to Gordon check is going to ask a question of our correspondent Arthur Waldron of the university of Pennsylvania about what that statement about the WHL reveals about the present crisis in chat a guard good evening to you the question Dick Arthur please phrase our other today we'll see one news agency released a statement from the director general of the WHL after he met with C. jumping in Beijing and the director general said that China was quote winning the admiration of the world on foot another quote this is the superiority of the Chinese system and the experiences are worthy of emulation by other countries your comment please Arthur well I mean that is ridiculous and Walton and everybody including the people who are making those statements no that is wrong right now the reports that I have been gathering of we've all been seeing China is seething with anger at the absolute incompetence of the people in charge and also at the grotesque lack of emergency preparation I was just reading before we came on the air about a elderly man who had to go to a different hospital and his you that none of them would let a man and it isn't clear what his status is now people are list quite literally dropping dead on the street and they are so mad the they are there before burning up the wires on the internal talk minutes and who knows what they'll burn up next our third the puzzle here is that China has a top down command system no one could move until he or she receives an order from the top and it goes all the way to the M. for therefore the puzzle does China knows the embers the problem do they understand the fish they had the state my feeling is that they do if you think of almost any country facing the this incredible disease out out out out break like this this is you could say that this is like a Chinese Chernobyl I mean it's a huge disaster the the head of the country when the president of France or you know the IBM this is mark they would be on the next plane to wherever the place once they be making themselves visible to the people they'd be meeting with the officials say be crouching there eating a few finger fulls of rice with the nurses before they go back to work they'd be comforting the bereaved they would be exposing themselves to danger and so I will leadership death the big question of the Chinese that apparently is where is trump now what does that mean it doesn't mean trump trump is the code word that they have adopted for she's in pain who is described as safely in Beijing and people are absolutely red hot hopping mad about this wait are there just wanna check where is trump is code for where she is that correct that is correct yes that is important that's fabulous that tells me the Chinese people got soul the Chinese people they one of wall grins lost in the Chinese people are very smart and one of the problems that the government's having this time is they have various **** and bull story and the people and millions and millions of them on the phone they're able to play with words make ponds make references to all kinds of stuff and the and and the poor they're overwhelmed the poor sensors are overwhelmed by the volume of the discussions and they're also overwhelmed by the intelligence and wit of the way that views are conveyed guard the anger toward the end certainly aren't there last couple days state television critic Chinese television critic of posted a comment about the HBO series Chernobyl in that comment the critic mentioned nothing about the corona virus and the current situation in China and yet of course that whole posting was taken down because the Chinese leaders know that people are talking in a very determined way about Chernobyl it's a quick ability to what's going on and move on and China and the need for a whole new and political system and are there I think that you're absolutely right the Chinese people now understand this they're talking openly about it and this could very well be a leading sign of a failure of the Communist Party I agree with you I think you could go back to June night the first small teachers strike in Hong Kong and then you can look at wave after wave that is hip hip the the Beijing the communist leaders the communists the first the Hong Kong demonstrations then there washing defeat at the polls another bid to sell to the lecture long calling them the communists have been absolutely wiped out each time then the triumphant election of the Taiwan president who won more votes than anyone has ever won there and that already had speaking a little bit nervous to put it mildly to their they don't know how to win elections and now they have this challenge of keeping people alive this at the office and they can't meet it they don't have any idea what they're doing they don't know anything about the virus they don't know how it spreads and ads for word originated which I believe is a chemical warfare lab our other a biological warfare lab there's no proof of this but there is there's a lot of indirect indications of users one right smack in the middle of one time and the only one which is capable of holding this virus where experiments on this fires have been carried out if this they there's talk of the Chinese Communist may even admit that swear trump they are in so far over their heads it is just not funny and I think the lottery officials the governor or the mayor I guess he was being taken to task for not being Odyssey so you have to understand we knew all this stuff but we couldn't tell you until the higher ups gave us the okay now in the system like China for subordinate to say I do this so I would have told you that Mister Mister Biggs said that I couldn't that's insubordination and further more it it it is she is she looks like a weakling he is coming out looking like a complete weekly with no guts no sympathy living in a kind of vain world of his own so this is very very bad I was involved in the university of Pennsylvania Gordon

S. there huffing in there puffing and what we are seeing Arthur is this supposedly mighty state which is a post on the twenty first century looks hopeless well they look helpless with respect to us but consider it we've had nearly six months of massive demonstrations first immense but peaceful millions literally two million people photographs from above a impressive who were simply bearing witness to the fact that they wanted to be heard and then they started a little bit of trouble and then more and then by yesterday be you had a pitch battle at the polytechnic university where work for foot bridges were being burned armored an armored car was on fire it saturates sector and through all of this we had not seen or heard any official reaction from St Jane or from really from Hong Kong except to say this is unacceptable and we may have to stop it but it shows complete governmental incompetence in an African country if this was happening in the number two city the president from the first number one city he'd be over at the second city by by twenty four hours ever ready with a look we got to figure out what the hell we're going to do our car is gone on for for for five years five months and no action no discussions no communication it suggests that somehow the ability of the P. R. C. to do even simple things such as can be in a meeting is impaired U. as talked about something which I think is a significant change in the Hong Kong population and that is over these past five months of the we have seen Beijing inflame the population at various times by doing the wrong thing but what's occurred you have pointed out is that there has been an irrevocable change in Hong Kong's people if you could explain that well I think I should say this is an insight from Willie lamb who is really the dean of China watchers seven Hong Kong himself although he's a Canadian he lives in Canada and is the man he was sick of the heart one horrible thing after the point is the child that these people say they're eighteen year olds say their twenty two year old say their thirteen year olds say that there are parents say that their grandparents asked to these searing weeks of indecision of suffering of fear for their loved ones of police firing live ammunition and god knows what direction of the underground Chinese criminals coming out and beating up subway car passengers and all the rest they've stopped being your usual very very sort of thoughtful and unemotional urban citizens the you had before he went about their business they've been politicized and they've been politicized deeply and they now I think it's fair to say there seven and have people in Hong Kong who who with hatred of the day as I was saying earlier because mothers they hate the guts of the Communist Party are Sir Arthur imagine for us how the Tiananmen generation sees or hears the news of what's going on in Hong Kong does it make them regret does it make sense take over what they did that the compromises they made since eighty nine no I don't think so at all I think if they say to themselves well of course this is exactly what you expect this is what we went through this is what communism produces its is dysfunctional destructive mechanism for writing a society at a certain point its victims either they try to speak to women say for god sakes stop think about what you're doing and what it what it shows that is death then there's violence they chairman worked were naive enough to think that the people's army of China would not shoot at Chinese people I always to say by someone they can't do it you stick a bear and an eighteen year old undergraduate girl in killer that changes the course of history but that's what they did and now it's happened in Hong Kong is really in most of it in most ways very very similar not least in the affect people who went through the chairman crash this situation they've got so yes I seem to remember that thirty years ago while I was part of some unpleasant once people are killed I mean if your if your friend is beaten and then recovers maybe you don't think about all the time if you're somebody standing next to two other people both of whom are shot in the forehead and

And then, you know, come July, when we do a out here and there it's like three girls for girls. And it's usually the freshmen. Mandatory store and it gets better.

IBM, Leicester City and Thailand discussed on All Of It
"To all with Crystal Palace. Iran. Thrashed Real Madrid five one in L classic with the future of manager Yulia. And is now in serious doubt rail now ten in Lalita and in baseball Boston Red Sox the wraps on a dominating season with a five one win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in game five of the World Series. The Red Sox are killed their full title in fifteen years James more from James in twenty five minutes. In the meantime, let's talk about the computer giant IBM spending thirty four billion dollars to buy a software company that gives away its products for free business presented this morning. In Hong Kong is Andrew would Andrew what's this all about? Well, he doesn't give away all of the products for free. It gives away the key products. You remember the old thing they used to say is if you give them an official feed him for a day, if you give them if you teach a man to fish and you'll feed him for life. The capitalist version is you can also sell him fishing equipment. You can sell him magazines fishing. You can send him about theme holidays and conferences, and it's a bit like that with red hat, which is the company that IBM is board at the key to its business is the Lennox operating system which has been around for a couple of decades now, and it's no fun source software, and it's free. It's basically being put together by volunteers. So the problem is with the with the software is that because it's being put together volunteers. There isn't really anything like a company you can ring up or help desk. If you've got problems with Lennon's so company like red hat comes in and says, well, we'll solve your problems with lenox. We'll we'll adapts it. If you need it be we can debunk it. We come come connect you to other computer systems, and so on so red hat makes a lot of money out of that. It's also into cloud computing as well now IBM is the deal is worth thirty four billion IBM's worth. About one hundred ten billion on the stock market. So this is quite a big deal in terms of expanding the size of IBM rather. It's quite a big big takeover that might take a bit of time to digest IBM gets access to an awful lot more technology services. And traditionally IBM was very very good at coming up with big computers and lots of software and selling them a rather renting them to people. And so in a way, this is actually going backwards to what the IBM was like thirty forty years ago. Very good at coming up with software, which you can sell services rented out in effect, pay subscriptions and get cash again. And again and again. Yes. So IBM kind of coming full circle. Thank you. Andrea. That's our business presented this morning. Andrew would and as you may have had in the news throughout the last couple of days funds of LeicesteR Leicester City football club in Britain has confirmed. The chairman of the club died when his helicopter crushed outside the stadium on Saturday evening. All four people on board were also killed. Funds have been laying clubs shots and messages of support. Also the team stadium. Mr. VJ as was famously helped to put together a team which ton Waldron at one of the Premier League in two thousand sixteen at odds of five thousand to one at tell us more bottom and how he made his fortune that ended up in LeicesteR city's George McCloud who's a political risk consultant based in Bangkok. And you started his business is all right, George. Yes. That's correct. Now, would you would you say that he was immensely wealthy? He was he was a extremely wealthy businessman. His net worth was estimated at over three three billion US three point three billion. And speaking to my colleague Jonathan head not too long ago. He says that he wasn't that. Well known. In Thailand until he bought Leicester City. No, he was you know, he I I would say he was a figure of some controversy as well. He he he obtained a very lucrative duty free concession for Thailand's airports, which obviously did attract attention, but. His his acquiring of of the Leicester City football club sort of propelled him to to a new level, you know, locally as well, obviously internationally and what we've seen with other. Thai wealthy people. Not least should know what ended up in politics, but he stayed out into. Well, you know, formerly speaking he did. But behind the scenes, he's he's he's been incredibly active, politically, I'd say that that he stands apart in that sense. A lot of businessmen in Thailand try to deliberately steer clear of politics. He's been very active financing various sides of the political spectrum depending on I guess who's in power at the time. He's switched sides a number of times, then proved very dexterous at at navigating the difficult political system here, why Lester city of all the teams why did he pick it? Well, I mean for for one thing it was you know, it was an underdog team. And I think he set his sights on on, you know, wiping it into shape, which which he did very well. I mean, the shows a high level of sort of business acumen on his part and. It was very much a down de project. He he's as I say very wealthy, but he doesn't come from one of the legacy wealthy families here. And he was always struggling to gain acceptance in those circles, and I think acquiring that football club was partly intended for for that level of acceptance. So how will ties be reacting to his death? Well, there's obviously shock over this grief over this because he is possibly, you know, the the only figure in this country that's managed to internationalize himself to that degree. But you know, of course, I don't think people are in the under any illusions that they that he has been a figure of controversy as well. Good to talk to you. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us. We've been speaking to George McLeod who is a political risk consultant based in Bangkok. So.
