Listen Now to Future News 5.29.2018

Lots of news to share this week, including an initial report on our first experiences with riding ebikes.  (really fun!)  We enjoyed hearing Jeff Bezo’s plans for the moon and the rather esoteric Pentagon report on warp drives, extra dimensional space, and dark matter.  Though closer to home in many ways, Jaron Lanier’s latest talk on what’s wrong with the internet just didn’t strike us a accurate for our experience..another point of discussion. A new instant charging Lithium-ion battery is being realized at Cornell (very exciting), using DNA sampled from Loch Ness might finally find the monster, and a video of a UFO buzzing the moon, taken from Santa Cruz are also fascinating.  Enjoy!



Special Report - Update from Iron Eyes on Standing Rock's Landmark Case

Listen Now to Iron Eyes

During our last show we spoke with Chase Iron Eyes, of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. He is an American Indian activist, attorney, politician, anda co-founder of the Native American news website Last Real Indians.

  In the summer of 2016, Iron Eyes and other representatives of the Lakota People’s Law Project joined with other water protectors at Standing Rock to resist the Dakota Access pipeline. At one point he was arrested Chase Iron Eyesand charged with attempting to start a riot, a felony charge. In a key hearing last month, Judge Lee Christofferson admonished the North Dakota state’s prosecutor for witholding evidence. The judge also granted Chase Iron Eyes’ legal team authority to subpoena Tiger Swan, a private military security firm hired by Energy Transfer Partners, the Big Oil interests of this case. If all goes well, much will be revealed at Chase Iron Eye’s upcoming trial later this year.

We spoke with him for a few minutes for an update on his case.  For more info, go to the Lakota Law Project’s website. He is followed with some salient comments from Col Terry and Sun Lundell (aka Mrs. Future).

Listen Now to Al, Sun, Greg and Richard on Maker Faire 2018 

Indeed, it is that time of year when Makers, small and large, men, women, and children of all ages gather to Richard Cray getting head enlargement photo by Greg Panosshare and show off their latest creations, be they glow in the dark plants, intelligent jackets or virtual worlds of play.  We think of it as a kind of people’s world’s fair, a decentralized collection of unbridled creativity, fueled by the tools and technologies rising from our amazing cauldron, otherwise known as the Bay Area.  

To cover this unbelievable collection of projects run amok, we have none other than our favorite co-conspirators of a better future, Richard Cray and Greg Panos, who spent three days at the faire, checking out the most interesting nooks and crannies, for your enjoyment and potential education.  Have fun!
