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.


0.01: We Need Some Context!

Show notes

In which we talk about how context shapes (or should shape) our decisions regarding technology, with three big topics:

  • Christian author and former pastor John Piper and Pope Francis
    on Twitter
  • Google acquiring Nest and the ensuing internet freakout
  • Intentionally unprofitable bands and the changing shape of music industry, as
    highlighted by miniature label Controlled Burn Records and band

Sometimes we mention things in our show. When we do, we link them here. Makes it
easier for you that way… gives you some context, as it were.
