Joe and Chris sat down to talk about PC, and went off on some pretty wild tangents. Raw cut was 152 minutes long). In our favorite one, he leads Joe through the poppy fields of techno-Utopian optimism. Dancing in a somewhat agile fashion from self-driving cars, to Deep Blue, to Blade Runner, and Google Learning tech- at some point, Joe shoehorns in some stuff about Information Literacy. It had to go from the podcast proper, but shall be recorded here, on the interwebs, for posterity.
