A curious article claiming that We are in the final years of our internet — I disagree — led to a conversation on Twitter which led, in turn, to me appearing on a podcast.
The podcast in question was in James Purser’s series Purser Explores the World, and the episode was entitled Tomorrow’s Geek.
I ended up talking about my path into geekery via an interest in the space program, railways, and the Angle Park Computing Centre; old-school programming styles; my thoughts on how the internet is changing power relationships; my opinion of consumer pseudo-geeks; how future geeks will be hacking DNA and drones, and other stuff.
Also appearing in this episode are network engineer Mark Newton and notable geek Liz Quilty.

That audio is precisely as posted by Mr Purser, i.e. I haven’t turned it into my usual Conversations format.
