Tangential Convergence: Episodes

No, really, we're back. Tonight we decided to talk bitcoin, Bitcoins, Quatloos, beanie babies, tulip bulbs and such. We also talked some about the crisis in the Crimea. I promised to mention <a href="http://flatcapblackbackpack.net/">Robin's blog</a>, you should read it. You can follow <a href="https://twitter.com/kenhernden">Ken</a> ...
OK, I know we had a good title in there, but I forgot it and frankly, I don't feel like going through the whole thing to find it.... Four years ago we three got together (for the first time) on episode 8 to talk politics and technology. We also, happily, had a visit from the ever popular <a href="http://twitter.com/memepetitspois">Isabelle</a>. ...
Well, the US election has come and gone, and I for one will miss it. I won't miss the partisan attack ads, I won't miss the superPAC ads, but, I will miss reading <a href="http://fivethirtyeight.com">fiverthirtyeight.com</a> every day. In episode 31 we tackle the US election, the future of US elections ...
Yes, really, we all still exist. Seriously. So much has happened since we got together a little over a year ago. Several countries have new leaders, and Steve Jobs, on of the icons of tech, died. What do these things have in common? Leadership. So yeah, that was our topic. Robin is writing a book ...
Oddly, this episode had nothing to do with Jesus or the Flash, but, you will get the reference once you listen in.<br /><br />In fact, we got together for the first backyardcast of the season and talked about Google +. We love the 'circles' idea and figure this might be the thing that puts G+ over the ...
We three sat down to enjoy a lovely beverage, and discuss the playstation outage, the end of term and the exciting recent Canadian election. Robin blames China, Ken blames the Russian mafia, and, I kept silent on this, so don't bug me... Robin has been burnt by the cloud, but will not give any details. ...
We had to talk Egypt and the mideast in this recent episode, hell it is on everyone's mind. We are somewhat optimistic about the future, though Ken and I are more optimistic than Robin and Isabelle, who sat in and drew us during the recording.<br /><br />There have, of course, been other revolutions, ...
OK, that title is a tad odd, you will have to listen in to understand it.<br /><br />Robin, Ken and I decided to take on wikileaks and its oddball founder, <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_Assange">Julian Assange</a>. We had really not a lot of love for Assange himself, but we pretty much ...
Yeah we know, it has been a long time... Heck, Ken and I went to PAB 2010, did our panel with the Dude and Tom and never talked about it. Suffice it to say, that was fun.<br /><br />Anyway, we are back, and when we decided to get back into the podcasting scene we needed a topic. Robin mentioned to ...
We got together before the Stargate Universe season finale to discuss facebook and Mark Zuckerberg's awesome performance at the D8 conference (you have to watch the <a href="http://d8.allthingsd.com/speakers/mark-zuckerberg/">video</a>, seriously).<br /><br />Overall we pretty much agreed that there ...
We got together before Caprica to talk about location based apps. You know like Foursquare and Gowalla. This came about because I bought a new iPhone, and found out that the pics you take get geotagged automatically. This was a bit of a surprise, but also maybe a tad creepy.<br /><br />Robin was pretty ...
The whole <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Aurora">Google vs. China</a> in an out and out war of err, something or other inspired this episode. I made the point that this was Google, in essence, acting like a state level actor and this seemed somewhat novel. Well, both Ken and Robin ...
You will have to listen to the episode to get the title.. <br /><br />Anyway, Ken, Robin and I welcomed a few guests to the monumental episode 20, Alanna, Dwayne, Isabelle and Madeleine joined s this time out. Ken and Robin have been working getting an ebook platform ready for the U library. This ...
Robin, <a href="http://www.twitter.com/memepetitspois">Isabelle</a> (pinch hitting for Ken) and I got together the other night to talk user interfaces, usability and the internet. We started by talking about Windows 7 and Ubuntu and the horrible product that Isabelle was using in a French class she ...

Well this is the final episode before the coming academic term at <a href="http://www.algomau.ca">Algoma University</a>, where we all work. The topic turned, not surprisingly, to education. (A note, the SD card that I use on the recorder ended up filling up so we end abruptly around 59 minutes or so, ...
Yeah, we have all been talking about the Yahoo/Microsoft deal and Bing and google and what have you, but have you ever thought about the searching you do, and have done well before there were search engines? I am talking here about library searching. Yes of course, Ken and Robin are our library guys ...
It has been a while for sure. Ken, Robin and I often got together on the weekend during the last few months, but it was usually to talk about and watch the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Well, much to the delight of Josh from Israel, the hockey season is over, and we are back with an exciting new topic. Man ...
This episode, we congregated beyond the confines of Dave's and Isabelle's comfy basement and returned to stately Hernden manor, which was last heard of in <a href="http://tangentialconvergence.blogspot.com/2008/08/episode-7-olymtech.html">Episode 7 - Olymtech</a> for those of you keeping score at home. ...
Last Friday was the finale of the amazing sci fi show we have talked so much about, Battlestar Galactica. I was out at the psychology honours thesis conerence but I made it home in time to hang with <a href="http://www.twitter.com/mirbBrim">Maddie</a>, <a href="http://www.twitter.com/memepetitspois">Isabelle</a> ...
