TOPIC: Dave and Mike get a little bit freaked out by the WiFi hacking neighbor from hell story, and a little more by the fact that Netflix is changing! Better yet, Spotify finally hits the US (if you want an invite, email Mike at email@example.com).
Then there’s the always outstanding geek trivia from our good friend Jay Garmon:
Apollo 10 astronauts gave what unconventional call signs to their lunar and command modules, marking the last time astronauts were allowed to provide the names?
As if that wasn’t enough, we also get a couple of great coolsites of the week in with:
- DIYorNot? – Not sure if you should tackle that project on your own? Check this site out to know for sure!
- BetterPropoganda – Get your Indie fix on here, with stuff that’s new and cool and free to listen to and download!
The podcast only song of the week is “Migosa” by Amadou and Maryam. Enjoy!
TOPIC: Author, businessman, consultant, vet, raconteur and man-about-town (well, I’m making that last one up) Chip Bell and collaborator John Patterson bring us the insightful new book Wired and Dangerous: how your customers have changed and what to do about it. Chip spends a great half a show with us talking about how things move by “word of mouse” these days, and if you own a business, have ever written a review online, or are simply wondering what all the fuss is about, you’ll want to tune in!
We take a few minutes out to get some great geek trivia from our good friend Jay Garmon:

How many mommies and daddies did Dolly, the famous cloned sheep have?
We would’ve like to spend more time with Matt and Jay, but don’t mind getting one coolsite in anyways:
- Intel’s Museum of Me – Intel turns your social map into a cool walk-through museum!
