Winning Slowly

There are plenty of podcasts that will tell you how the latest tech gadget or “innovation” will affect the tech landscape tomorrow, but there aren’t that many concerned with the potential impact of that tech in a decade—much less a century. In a culture obsessed with now, how can we make choices with a view for tomorrow, next year, and beyond? 25–35-minute episodes released the first and third Wednesdays of the month.


episode 12: 3.12: Hungarian Folk Music

If you listen to Hungarian folk music, or classical music, or recordings of live shows, or obscure bands, then the (otherwise pretty decent) GraceNotes CD database and the many apps that rely on it might not really work for you. We talk about why that might be and how we might think about fixing it.
