Sex, Lies, and Cell Phone Cameras

Even though we know who’s going to be president for the next four years or so, for episode 67 of inThirty we’re going to get political, political. On our more than two thirds to one hundred podcast extravaganza episode we examine privacy through the experiences of four public figures: General David Petraeus, Governor Mitt Romney, Representative Scott DesJarlais, and the comedian’s best friend, Representative Anthony Weiner. Each of these public servants was undone by his own misdeeds and uncovered by way of his use of digital communication. We undermine good taste and talk about urinals and affairs and other unsavory stuff and even ask whether the unfortunate downfalls of these four men might actually be for the public good.

So Sue Us

Patents, piracy, probate, and prudence, jurisprudence on this week’s podcast. Please don’t take the title too seriously – on inThirty episode 56 we examine the red tape that’s been sticking to things all over Silicon Valley lately, and try, as only we three can, to cut through it. Apple sues Samsung, Google sues Apple, the RIAA sues Joe Schmoe and we take a look at the impact overall. We also try to figure out if you really can patent curved corners on rectangles.
