- Former MTV exec Andy Schuon says his new app solves the podcast discovery problem - The Spkr app launched on Thursday (November 7), with a promise to solve the "podcast discovery problem". The product was launched by ex-MTV executive, Andy Schuon with investor backing. The app aims to solve the discovery problem by having its curators listen to smaller independent podcasts and provide them with more visibility. The app also wants to help users to discover content by delivering it in smaller chunks.
- How Close Are We To Uploading Our Minds? - RealClear Science links to a TEDed video on the topic of uploading our brains. In short, we need a better understanding of the brain, our scanning technology needs to improve by a factor of more than 1,000 - which would require fundamentally new scanning technology, and we would need technologies that can store the massive data sets. According to the video, this storage technology is closer to reality than the other needs, but it doesn't exist yet. The video argues that we are still hundreds of years away from being able to accomplish this, and that there may be ethical reasons why we shouldn't do it, even if we could.
Here is the video, narrated by Michael S. A. Graziano:
