    How Will Your Outdated Technology Hurt You?

    As Southwest Airlines learned the hard way, failing to replace your old technology can really come back to bite you in the butt. The guys discuss some of the myriad issues related to outdated tech, from global down to personal levels, and then bring the topic home to lawyers to explain how to stay on top of your firm’s technology maintenance and replacement planning.
    Later, Dennis and Tom, talk through the recent LastPass debacles and what you should do when a tool you’ve relied on is no longer meeting your needs.

    Generative AI — Is It Going to Steal Your Job?

    Uh-oh, the robots are gunning for your jobs again. Or… are they? Generative AI has the ability to analyze existing knowledge and then produce its very own creative content, with varying results thus far. Dennis and Tom talk through what’s happening in this sphere of technology, recommend tools to try out, and examine whether real live content creators need to worry about losing work to these AI usurpers.
    With the possible self-destruction of Twitter, is a return to RSS a viable alternative? Listen in as the guys run RSS through their “Hot or Not?” filter.
