    Funding Science & Innovation; Remote Work & Future Silicon Valley

    with @martin_casado @chrislyons @davidu @smc90

    For this holiday break episode we cover two timely yet still developing-news topics: (1) That the National Science Foundation could rebrand and get a significant amount of funding, which has implications for U.S. competitiveness and corporate innovation; and (2) There’s been a whole spate of companies that announced they’re going remote, not just during COVID or extending beyond it but by default -- so what are the implications?

    Apple App Clips, Program the Offline World!

    with @fromedome @conniechan @smc90

    Apple "App Clips" and "App Clip Codes" were announced at WWDC this week -- but what are they really? They're part of a broader trend, with implications for businesses and brands big and small. But where do (and don't) the parallels to WeChat apply; what does it mean for discovery, super apps, and the future of context-aware computing... especially when more mainstream AR glasses arrive to, er, augment smartphones?

    Videogames as Medicines -- So What Is/Isn't a Digital Drug?

    Videogames as Medicines -- So What Is/Isn't a Digital Drug?

    with @nikillinit justinlarkin @vijaypande @smc90

    The FDA just approved the first ever videogame that can now be legally marketed and prescribed as a medicine -- it's for 8-12 year olds with ADHD. But where does this fit in the broader category of "digital therapeutics"... and what is' isn't a digital therapeutic as compared to traditional drugs, or even telemedicine?

    Snapchat & Bitmoji: Mobile, Social, Cloud Gaming, Identity

    with @tocelot @farming_xp @smc90

    Recent Snap features announced around navigation redesign, Snap Games, and Bitmoji for Games have broader implications for the gaming industry and future of social networks. Especially when such messaging games (built on HTML5 and "mini programs" or apps-within-apps) merge the key trends of mobile, social, cloud gaming... and identity.

    Section 230 CDA: Content Moderation, Free Speech, the Internet

    with @mmasnick @smc90

    Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has been in the headlines a lot recently, in the context of Twitter, the president's tweets, and an executive order put out by the White House just this week. So we break it all down -- what it is and isn't, its evolution, where platforms and content moderation comes in -- explaining nuances, debunking popular rhetoric, and more.

    The Security and Privacy of Contact Tracing

    The Security and Privacy of Contact Tracing

    with joeldelagarza @smc90

    Contact tracing is a key strategy for preventing further spread of a disease like COVID-19, but approaches and frameworks vary in how, who, and where -- especially on privacy and security. Yet technology is not the biggest part of this discussion; it’s also about rights, cultures, and values... and the bigger questions around what happens when people are "transformed into cellphone signals".
