Future News - Robin Williams Stories and Jokes,Ethan Bearman report on Israel/Palestinian situation, Your Brain on Fish, 9 Volt Nirvana, Brain Regeneration, Radical New AI, Water Tractor Beam, Amazon Publisher Dispute
We too mourn the loss of Robin Williams and share some of reminiscences of the man and what his life meant to us. He was quite the techie, and often did jokes like, ‘Is it rude to Twitter during sex? To go “omg, omg, wtf, zzz”? Is that rude?’
We are also joined by journalist and talk show host Ethan Bearman for his take on the Middle East, after visiting Israel earlier this month. He shares with us some of his insights and adventures from the journey and answers the question, “Why go to a war zone?”
We also raise the issue of ebooks as a disrupter to the book publishing field as evidenced by the current Amazon.com vs Hachette Publishing dispute, which we discuss in some depth. Enjoy!
