350 Third is a bi-weekly talk show discussing the impact of the Internet on business. Hosted by Scott Barstow and Anders Brownworth.
Episode #97 - The Death of Twitter
Anders and Scott talk Twitter's most recent takeover offers and who we'd like (or not like) to see buy our favorite platform, and how ludicrous it is that 350 million users is considered a failure. Would Twitter go public if they were to make the decision in today's market? We discuss. We also go deep on the age of networks that we're currently living in, and what's good and bad about the nature of the closed networks that we all participate in.
Episode #96 - Let's get Meta
Anders and Scott talk about this show, how it's put together, and the decision to have or not have sponsors. It might sound like so much navel-gazing, but we cover some pretty interesting ground along the way.
Episode #95 - Pimp Yourself and the DAO
In our first episode in a while, Anders and Scott talk about Scott's recent experience getting Gig internet service from AT&T, and we dig deep into the DAO contract fiasco and it's impact on Ethereum.
Episode #94 - Bitcoin Upheaval and Ethereum
Anders talks in depth about the Mike Hearn bombshell in the Bitcoin community, and we talk about the emergence of smart contracts and Ethereum as "the next big thing".
Episode #93 - Drone Update - Walmart and the FAA
Anders and Scott discuss the recent announcement by the FAA regarding the registration of drones, and Walmart's jumping into the drone delivery fray with Amazon.
Episode #92 - Return of Jack
Anders and Scott talk in depth about the return of Jack Dorsey to Twitter, and about why Twitter is struggling while Facebook can seemingly do no wrong. They also talk about the similarities between Evernote and Twitter, and how each company might adjust in the future.
Entertaining and Thought Provoking
First, the production quality is very good and the content is well prepared and thought out. Both hosts speak very intelligently about relevant tech topics, but also bring a great personal touch and cultural relevancy. Feels very much like a natural conversation between two smart and interesting friends that the audience is lucky to sit in on. Keep them coming!
350 Third is one of my favorite tech casts due to the insights the hosts bring to a broad range of topics (app development, Dietrich Bonnhoeffer, digital archival as a few examples). At the top of my list with The Critical Path series.
Great podcast for teens and adults
I love how this podcast generates discussion for my family. The technology is interesting and bridges the gap between my tween, teens and us parents. It lets us know what's current and opens our minds to ideas for the future, inspiring us to come up with some of our own dreams and solutions. Love the movie part, too. Now we know what to add to that movie queue. I look forward to it every week (and so does the rest of my family).
