Like the lady who swallowed the fly, this techno-amiable public has a problem. There’s too much tech and not enough grown-up minds to handle it! Now we’re working hard to invent the spider, bird, cat and dog to catch those tech flies… It’s the drones that have done it! A new era hasn’t arrived with a bang but the need can’t be avoided and that’s pointing us down another road, what do we do with all this crap when it’s obsolete!?
Your ISPs gateway is like an electric locomotive and everything that’s connected is a car along the train. The gateway has both the modem and the router. Most retail routers for sale today shouldn’t be sold because their underlying processor architecture is outdated and leaves every device that connects to it vulnerable. This episode can get you on track with why residential security is the pits these days. After a little browser history, you’ll see why Google is the RR tycoon in our analogy and there’s a research paper out there to back it all up!
Most likely a part one, this episode is rudely interrupted by the discovery of firewall logs that indicate an ongoing attack on the router during the show. A primer for new users who want to kill a half hour with explanations about antenna, 5G, NSA-made malware, routers and basics of how wireless networks fit together for users. MU-MIMO coverage rolls in and the episode touches on the concept of how important insulating your smart gadgets from outside networks is; more so with the eventual arrival of 5G.
A little primer today with information going back just months or, in a few cases, almost ten years. The future is unmanned.
It’s a little unstrung today but an apocalypse can do that. Will
technology’s insatiable demands for energy and speed knock us out before all that nifty A.I. ever gets a chance? Environmental reports and ongoing exploitation combined with more aggressive energy creation have this ice age coming to a close rapidly. So, can technology save us from technology? Plus! We continue a little of yesterday’s talk on Free Speech.
For what it’s worth to you,
we’ve been shy about method
and brazen about content in a manic push
to calculate the best way to move
from concept to publishing as smoothly as possible.
The real reason is that some episode Part One’s are recorded twice after the host establishes a more concrete idea on review. This adds up to a very big waste of time if the workflow for podcasting is still floundering around and being hammered out. Maybe you know?
We love to have the time to publish those revisions instead of miss a day.
Hardware and software discussed…
Behind this green door, a safe and insulated meeting place for meetings of the minds and risk eaters of the futures our collective techxiety plagues our thoughts with. DIY Do It Yourselfers are welcome, Build Your Owners are welcome and, really, damn near anyone is welcome with this in mind:
Keep and open mind,
speak your thoughts with a kind mouth,
and we’ll get through this.
Whatever it is.
