Ep. 194 – Tom Standage and The Economist’s Technology Quarterly

TOPIC:  The title of this one pretty much says it all, but doesn’t give you a hint at what an awesome guest Tom was!  We don’t have nearly the time needed to get into all the cool stories from the Economist’s special Technology Quarterly insert (though we give it that old college try), but Tom’s promised to come back next quarter and fill us in again!

Jay Garmon does his usual great job at keeping us on our geek trivia toes, asking this question:

Besides our moon, what are the only 3 other non-planets that humans have landed a spaceprobe on?

Because of the brilliant discussion with Tom, we cut short the ‘cool sites of the week’ this week and keep it to only a couple, related to the show:

  • Economist Technology Quarterly – Find out what Tom and I missed by reading it online!
  • Tom Standage.com – Tom’s not only the business affairs editor for the UK division of the Economist, but has a lot of great stuff that you won’t find anywhere else but going straight to the source!

The podcast only song of the week this week is Kriss Kross by the Guillemots!
