08: Meet Joshua Cohen, Apple University's resident philosopher.
A distinguished philosopher and political scientist (Yale, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Apple) Cohen gives extraordinary lectures for executives and engineers on three topics: New York's Central Park, the discovery of the Higgs boson and Glenn Gould's recordings of the Goldberg Variations. You've already learned more than I knew before this interview about Apple University. To outsiders it is a mysterious black hole that sucks up the best and brightest from academia never to be seen again. Not so, says Cohen, who takes us inside.
07: Dan Rayburn on Apple's original TV content
What is Reese Witherspoon making for Apple, and how will it fit into the post-Cable TV world? According to Dan Rayburn, principal analyst at Front & Sullivan, it won't be a Netflix-like series, and it won't be used to sell hardware. I learned a lot in this impromptu 10 minute Q&A .

Kudos to Markoff
A very informative interview with old colleague John Markoff (from our SF Examiner days). Congratulations to you and John for a very civilized discussion. Markoff's regular apprearances in the NYT will be missed but glad to hear he'll still be doing cameos.
I've highly enjoyed PED's articles for roughly 8 years now. With him taking the leap into independent journalism (March 2016 I think), I'm glad to see Philip incorporating an additional platform to entertain his cult followers--myself included. It will be interesting to see how this medium develops.
