devil's advocate (Facebook) Show more
Just a thought....
What if the current crisis around FB resulted in a robust, reliable, transparent means of dealing with data and privacy, and a move towards a subscription service that eliminates the need for advertising? Is it possible that FB can be done "right" at this stage?
The utility that FB had for me in its early days is still something that I haven't found elsewhere. It was an unholy mess in recent yeaars...is there any way back for it?
if a website says "please turn off adblock" i just leave the website

Anyone got opinions on Vero?
It seems to be pitched at users annoyed with Facebook's recent revelations, and it looks like the developer is being upfront that users will have to pay for the service to keep it advert free.
Anyway, I'm in there, but I don't have any connections yet. If you feel like joining it to see what it's like, look me up.
Leviathan Wakes. I'm almost finished it, and it's been very good so far. There's a related series out on Netflix now too (called The Expanse), which I made the mistake of watching. Not that the TV show is bad, but within the first half hour it had diverged from the storyline of the book, and I was getting confused. Might go back to the TV show after I've finished the book.
Any Sci-fi book recommendations??
I think the audio editing features are limited in Anchor, so I want to experiment a little with audio editing my microcasts. I thought the best way to do this was to share a few casts where I try out different editing apps, to see how it all goes.
In this episode I created the audio using GarageBand and Hokusai, all using just my iPhone.
Thank you for your patience! We've fixed the audio in the second half of Ep.97 and re-uploaded it.
Wait until you see [FIXED] next to the episode number in your podcast client!
EV Microcast #2 just out! Come with me for a short spin in my electric car. https://anchor.fm/waynegibbons/episodes/EV-Microcast-2-e164lu/EV-Microcast-2-a2m2hc
@dajbelshaw Hi Doug. Just came across an app that your son might like (I heard you mentioning he likes making music, and his intro to your Microcast is great). It’s called NodeBeat, and it has just been made free in the App Store. It’s simple, fun and kinda trippy! I’ll most likely do my own intro with it. http://nodebeat.com/
