Last week’s conversation about the future of jobs apparently went so well that it’s become a regular weekly spot over summer. “Tech Wreck” is now on ABC 720 Perth each Tuesday at 1430 AWST / 1730 AEDT.
This week we spoke about:
- Machines talking to machines, including the idea of your car reporting maintenance issues directly to the manufacturer, or even reporting your driving habits directly to your insurance company. It was inspired by Chris Arkenberg’s article, Inside The Near-Future World Where All Our Data And Machines Are In Constant Communication.
- Some online safety tips for summer. I don’t have any links for that, sorry, it was all just stuff in my head.
- Instagram and “selfie culture”, including 2014’s Most Instagrammed Places.
The presenter is Jamie Burnett. If there’s any topics you’d like us to talk about in coming weeks, please let us know. Or phone in during the program on +61 8 9220 2700.
