Hark is a new podcast from RedMonk, the developer focused industry analyst company. We talk to some of the most interesting people we know about topics you might not expect.

    Episode 14: What's the Score?

    Episode 14: What's the Score?

    From massive layoffs at ESPN to Fox Sports' recent decision to axe its writers in favor of an all video site, it's safe to say that the sports world has been no exception to the tectonic shifts in the wider journalism world. Why is this happening? What role, if any, has technology played in this disruption? What does technology mean for workers in the field moving forward? What are some of the unintended consequences of this reshaping of the sports media landscape?
    To explore these questions, we talked to the Boston Globe's Chad Finn, who covers these changes for a living and lives them himself.

    Episode 13: Analysts. WTF.

    Episode 13: Analysts. WTF.

    In the technology world, industry analysts have been around nearly as long as the technologies themselves. In spite of that fact, however, the job remains a mystery to most whether they work in technology or not. To answer questions about what it's like to be an industry analyst - the good, the bad and the ugly - we talked to Rachel Stephens, who just completed her first year on the job.

    Episode 12: "With Great Power"

    Episode 12: "With Great Power"

    When it comes to code, there's a wide spectrum of potential impact. Most commonly, it's thousands of one off scripts designed, generally, to do one thing for one person. Down the tail, we have pieces of technology whose importance is difficulty to overstate: think internet protocols like TCP or browser technologies. To discuss what it's like to work on technologies like these, we speak with Mozilla's Joe Hildebrand about his experiences working on XMPP, the Internet Architecture Board, Firefox and more.

    Episode 11: "Leaving Silicon Valley"

    Episode 11: "Leaving Silicon Valley"

    The rising cost of living in California generally and Silicon Valley specifically is no secret, but the technology industry has been insulated from these market forces by virtue of its salaries. According to many anecdotal and media accounts, however, costs are now high enough that tech workers who would be counted amongst the financial elite almost anywhere else in the country and now being priced out. The question for many tech workers is: what next? What happens when you leave the Valley? To explore the issue, we talked to one tech worker who'd done just that, Sara Dornsife.

    Episode 10: "The Revolution Will Be Digital"

    Episode 10: "The Revolution Will Be Digital"

    The times, as the Nobel Prize-winning Bob Dylan once wrote, are changing. One of the most noticeable changes is that one time political couch potatoes are up and motivated, flooding everything from cramped town hall venues to plain old telephone lines. But for those in the technology industry, one of the interesting questions being asked is: what can I do? How can I be most impactful? To explore questions of digital activism, we talk to one of its most interesting (and hilarious) practitioners, Clara Beyer.

    Stephen O'Grady, @sogrady, RedMonk
    Guest:
    Clara Beyer, @clarabellum, Feminist T Swift, Holyfuckthelection.com, and many other projects

    Episode 9: "What To Do Now"

    Episode 9: "What To Do Now"

    On January 20th, the political climate here in the United States changed dramatically. Besides the personal implications for American citizens, it raises a host of questions for American businesses generally, and technology companies specifically. What, if anything, do corporations say publicly? What are the potential costs, and how do they minimize them? To explore these questions, we speak with veteran messaging pro Mike Maney.
