Strap in, we’ve got a lot of topics this episode: Automattic is buying more stuff, MORE STUFF! Apple is putting Intel processors in Macs still? Joseph likes the look of a paid alternative to Google Search called Neeva. TJ and Joseph reminisce about the good old days of Apple design. TJ is enjoying NetNewsWire. And the pair are trying to find a good MagSafe wallet — surely there’s something good out there? In the post show, TJ and Joseph discuss Black Widow and the Marvel Universe.
Dr. C. and Joseph Darnell discuss the billionaires racing to outer space, Rob yearns to hitch a ride to the moon, they discuss the complexities of good science critical debates, and in main discussion, Rob continues the idea of terraforming planets Venus, Mars, and moons beyond.
For the first time since before quarantines began in 2020, Rob and Joseph are back in the studio for today’s episode! They discuss un-recycled plastic waste in the Pacific Ocean, Soylent ‘complete nutritious meal replacement’(!), and in their main topic, what it would take to terraform the moon and Mars!
On today’s episode of Equinox, Rob is excited that Joseph got DNA tests (on sale for Prime Day). In the main discussion, Dr. C. explores the issue of deep time and distant starlight travel—how it works, what we know, what astronomers speculate … It’s fascinating, as Rob likes to say!
Day One be synergizin’ with Automattic, Joe is interested in ergonomic computer pointing devices and blue light blocking glasses, TJ is interested in Windows 11 — and the design of this iteration of Windows has also caught Joe’s eye, and TJ thinks modern digital key fobs are… problematic.
