There are three streams that have at least some live programming, and the UbuWeb and Boredcast streams which are shuffle-mode streams.
Avatar    Mon. 3/12/18 6:09pm βrian:

The Boredcast stream has saved me, from time to time.

A tinfoil hat would be a great Marathon Premium!

There will have to be a 20% tariff on the aluminum for that hat.

The Jolly Roger project is a miracle of performance art!

Can you talk about how you think the end of net neutrality will effect WFMU. I am guessing you may already have but I missed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:14pm Webhamster Henry:

Sharon the Google Specialist calls me every week, she is so concerned with my SEO issues.

Oh yes please, keep talking!!

For some reason, that reminded me of the infamous Kathy McGinty tapes. Totally not FCC friendly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:19pm Michael 98145:

... indeed, "what about the rest of us?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Dave - The 11/27 program had some discussion on that: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar    Mon. 3/12/18 6:20pm βrian:

I want to hear Kimzilla respond to Mark like the robot. That could be fun.

Probably not great for a fund drive, though ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:22pm listener james from westwood:

Ever since I started listening to Techtonic, I've seen my Twitter feed through a more skeptical eye, both stories about tech promise and intrusiveness, and my Twitter experience itself. I'm sure Mark is sick of my cc'ing him on retweets of various stories of, say, Facebook's multi-tentacular creepiness!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:23pm listener james from westwood:

@Rich, that's exactly what the Jolly Roger bot reminds me of!

What is the Twisted Pair pledge level?

Thanks, Ken. Any new info on oldest DJ?

Lotta great FMU swag coming out of Zone 5.

Yeah!!!

"Hackers" is the most important book Mr. Levy has written, I believe.

It gets you into the culture of real computer geeks (as distinct from the kiddies-come-later).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

OK...just ran the S4L menus. Electrons should be blipping your way soon. The Techtonic Tee was one of my choices.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:41pm listener james from westwood:

Mark, you do a fantastic job hosting this show. It's always a packed hour and your range of guests indeed spans wonder and terror at the promise of tech. And it's well worth some tech-money karma. Or as I'd put it, weregild (en.wikipedia.org...).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:41pm Michele:

And if you have a real job check if your company does matching donations!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:42pm listener james from westwood:

Facebook et al. are facing an end-of-"The Godfather" reckoning for their role in election 2016. The least they can do is help immunize folks to the lure of tech's dark side via funding this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:42pm medson:

Good comment Michele. : )
I was going to add that

i didn't call out techtonic specifically in my S4L pledge, but i don't kid myself that there's anywhere else we could hear this excellent show. keep up the great work, Mark!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:49pm queems:

oh man my company matches but it might only be for charity? i have to check that out
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:51pm listener james from westwood:

WFMU is a 501(c)(3) charity; it totally qualifies!
Avatar    Mon. 3/12/18 6:51pm βrian:

Speaking of kiddies-come-later, has there been any discussion on Techtonic about trends in coding & design that reflect fashion more than sense?

I'm always struck by how much "best practices" are really just fashion statements that require denigrating practices that made new practices possible. It's as if digital technologies really never existed until, say, about 18 months ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:51pm queems:

OH BOY
  Mon. 3/12/18 6:52pm herb.nyc:

My pledge gets matched by a corporation- wfmu is a non profit and that's enough for the corporation.

Matching grants info page: www.wfmu.org... If one's company asks how much the employee has given to WFMU, how would he/she respond? I've got a bunch of emails from my various pledges. Would we email Joe to have him send an email that gives the total for the calendar year?
  Mon. 3/12/18 6:55pm Robert from Woodbridge:

There are few shows out there like Techtonic. I'm so proud to support it and WFMU.
  Mon. 3/12/18 6:56pm medson:

@queems my company matches. It’s great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/12/18 6:57pm queems:

i'm looking into it right now

Speaking of Bob raining, it was suggested that he cohost with Professor dumb dumb tomorrow at midnight. Voice to text was used. Of course I meant Bob Brennan

I hope there exists a boat large enough to tote all Bas' pledges here and all his winnings back to him.
