@Leonard: Glad you enjoyed it and really appreciate the feedback, thank you! We've debated how deep we wanted to go technically vs. staying higher level, so it's excellent to hear that there's interest. Something great to consider for future episodes and let me know if there's anything specific from a technology perspective you're interested in seeing us cover.
@KRemde @Sara Jones: Very much agreed with all of the points mentioned (especially these guys being passionate about their work, they're incredible :D . The concerns are definitely fair and justified (and something that I think about extensively, you know, for fun). There is certainly a chance that if we aren't deliberate about our technology, we may lead to a Wall-E type world which may seem perfect from the outside but be far from it in reality. We just gotta hope we're not already there.
@KRemde @Jackie: Completely agreed on all of the above, incredibly interesting times we're living in, which is going to lead to a WHOLE bunch of brand new questions we've never considered (realistically, anyway).
And it almost sounds like you've been reading our OneNote for some of the ideas for future episodes ;) . There may be a line item called "Hivemind" which would address many of those very items, I'm sure
@albert: Big fan of simplification! And I think the key part of this is how IT people and developers work together to tackle problems as a team, rather than working in silos. This will lead to those nice and friendly experiences, available on any device.
@masonin: Thanks for the comment, masonin, that's really awesome to hear :) . Really glad that you liked the suggestions, the grandson part is especially awesome! I love seeing younger children becoming passionate and interested about technology, and it's so great that he shared it with you.
Let me know if there's anything else you two are interested in. For your grandson, I'd recommend the Imagine This! show. My team doesn't create it directly, but it's easily one of my favorite shows on Channel 9, inspiring the younger people for what's possible with technology (plus, Gavin and Kat are amazing).
