In response to the latest natural disasters affecting us, Google has launched Project Loon, providing much needed emergency wifi communications in Hurrican ravaged Puerto Rico and UCSD has deployed WiFire to more accurately predict the course and scope of the masive wind-whipped fires of California’s wine country. 

 

We speak with Lars Ling and fellow Scandanavians during Nordic Impact Week in the Bay area, who were Facebooking us Live while they were on the air with Dr. Mrs. Future! It’s amazing what project the Nordics are making real in social media, augmented reality, communications and clean tech. Their high energy and love for what they are doing comes clearly through our interview.

Crowd-Sourced Gun Violence Solutions with our live Radio Audience

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 10.03.2017

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas Massacre, the worst mass shooting in recent US history, we focused our live audience on calling in possible solutions to this madness. From gun shot detectors at large events to a mental health evaluation for everyone applying for a gun permit, we look at the pros and cons of such potential solutions.  We also take a look at other countries, such as Germany and Australia to see if we may take a page from their playbook.   This is a serious folks, with no easy solution.  But fortunately, we have a collective desire to move this issue forward, and this show is our first attempt to move the needle on our out of control gun issue. We look forward to your ideas and comments.
