    Notes from the Electronic Cottage 11/25/21: Computing, digital tech and climate change

    Notes from the Electronic Cottage 11/25/21: Computing, digital tech and climate change

    Producer/Host: Jim Campbell Does computing and digital technology have any serious impact on energy use, carbon emissions, and Climate Change? The largest society of computer professionals in the world says Yes! Here’s why. Here is the link to the paper discussed today. About the host: Jim Campbell has a longstanding interest in the intersection of digital technology, law, and public policy and how they affect our daily lives in our increasingly digital world. He has banged around non-commercial radio for decades and, in the little known facts department (that should probably stay that way), he was one of the readers voicing Richard Nixon’s words when NPR broadcast the entire transcript of the Watergate tapes. Like several other current WERU volunteers, he was at the station’s sign-on party on May 1, 1988 and has been a volunteer ever since doing an early stint as a Morning Maine host, and later producing WERU program series including Northern Lights, Conversations on Science and Society, Sound Portrait of the Artist, Selections from the Camden Conference, others that will probably come to him after this is is posted, and, of course, Notes from the Electronic Cottage.

But in an age of increasingly powerful neurotechnologies, do we have we have a right to freedom of thought, or from others knowing our thoughts?

    Producer/Host: Jim Campbell Yup, it’s not even Halloween but we’re getting suggestions that we should be doing holiday shopping early this year given Covid, supply chain kinks, etc. Scammers are loving it – an extra month to try to cheat us!
