Return visit to Hart Attack to talk about hacking!

This was even more of a meandering discussion then last time.  We started with the election hacking scandal and branched out to cover all manner of terrifying technology.   Episode 123 airs on Christmas evening 8pm PST.  Downloads available sometime after here or podcast.  Here is a link:

Hart and I have worked together for some time.  He is a mogul of all things horrific.  Now he takes on the horror of the modern day with a political/news podcast.  He is also struggling under the enormous weight of the medical care for his wife.  I encourage anyone with extra funds this holiday season to contribute here.

Crowds & Food Trucks

First time at Wondercon, I had a great time.  Hilariously interesting panels, friendly people and amazing costumes.  Food trucks for miles supplemented the usual con food.  Similar to Comic Con in spirit, but not in scope.  Wondercon lacked the sweltering crowds and with them, much of the lines.  This more intimate setting afforded more direct fan interaction.  I saw creators hugging fans and levels of joy and enthusiasm that could almost approximate wonder.

…And there were robots.
