🎙️Lockhead talking about the Monster Category Battle of Microsoft vs Google - except it isn’t.

Google’s category is ‘search’. Microsoft’s is ‘answers’. Very different.

Is he right?

🎛️ Embrace The Future

The excerpt is not the main thrust of the podcast, but neatly summarizes the problem of rejecting, rather than embracing, what is clearly something that is part of the future.

If the UK and/or the USA could find more leaders that demonstrate the qualities of Jacinda Arden, wouldn’t both surely be better off for it?

Sadly, she’s had her run, the voters are not going her way …

🔗 Palo Alto: A History of California, Capitalism and the World is a new book by Malcolm Harris.

He talks about it on this podcast 🎙️The Dark History Of Silicon Valley with Sean Illing.

🎛️ English Progressive Redux

🔗 Andrew Hickey’s ‘500 Songs’ includes a good and interesting summary of why the UK and US musicians who ‘arrived’ in the 60s sounded so different, emerging, he argues, from significant social differences and country histories.

🎵 Despite my initial resistance to the 500 song podcast narrated by 🔗 Andrew Hickey .. I am now moving into my third … first ‘The Monkees’, then ‘Love’, now ‘The Move’. The depth of information flying …

🎵 Over on @dave mentioned that back in the day he was a fan of The Monkees. Unashamedly - so was I. He linked to this show. It’s long. The narrator (that’s what he sounds like) - has a boring voice - but still an interesting listen.

Never heard of the 🎙️podcast - so had a look at other episodes. Just as long - and I suspect that the voice will be just as boring - BUT - some really interesting deep dives into some good songs and bands. I will be listening to this one - the band ‘Love’.
