Boas vindas calorosas und Tuten Gag da draußen. #VOLLHORSED kommt nach zwei Wochen aus dem Gebüsch des World Wide Web und Alex, Moderator und fleischgewordener R2-D2, begrüßt in der heutigen Folge einen der ganz großen der Trainerzunft. Papa, Gladdi, Top-Coach - herzlich Willkommen Markus Klug. Erstaunlich smart und fundiert schafft es Alexander Schlaumann den gelernten Versicherungskaufmann nicht nur über seinen interessanten Karrierebeginn als Besitzertrainer in Iffezheim, sondern selbstverständlich auch über die Chancen im Derby 2022 auszuquetschen. Momentan hat Markus Klug noch neun Pferde für das diesjährige Blaue Band genannt und gibt uns eine Einschätzung, wer denn wahrscheinlich am Ende tatsächlich in die Startboxen gehen wird. Frei nach dem Motto: Auch einrücken kann entzücken! Der Fan vom Ascot Gold Cup hat bislang drei Mal das wichtigste deutsche Galopprennen gewonnen und versucht natürlich auch in diesem Jahr mal wieder den Hamburger Rasen zu küssen. Wo schaut er die Rennen in Hamburg? Hätte auch Filip mit Sea the Moon das Derby 2014 gewonnen? Wie schmeckt eigentlich der Hamburger Rasen? Das und vieles mehr, seht ihr, wenn das Licht angeht. Möge die Macht mit ihm sein! #VOLLHORSED-Ikone und pferdewetten.de-Markenbotschafter Dr. Filip Minarik ist auch wieder am Start und verrät "Ik bin ein Schlenderhaner" und findet zu seiner großen Überraschung heraus, dass zwei Wochen tatsächlich wesentlich kürzer als sechs Wochen sind. Ein Hoch auf tschechische Schulen. Es wäre schön gewesen, wenn dies die einzigen Infos des osteuropäischen Meister Yoda gewesen wären - aber er hat auch wieder ein paar Mümme am Start. Außerdem gibt es Derby-Gossip aus der Bar des NH Hotels in Hamburg-Horn und noch ein bisschen Beef zwischen Alex und Filip. Fun Fact: Nicht nur die Karriere von Alex ist einsturzgefährdet. Hört mal rein - eine Folge wie eine leere Minibar.

Find the complete show notes for this episode on Patreon. This episode was recorded live in Austin, Texas at the West China Tea House in partnership with EFF-Austin, a non-profit committed to the establishment and protection of digital rights and defense of the wealth of digital information, innovation, and technology. Founded in 1991 as a local sub-chapter of The Electronic Frontier Foundation and run as an independent organization, EFF-Austin promotes the right of all citizens to communicate and share information without unreasonable constraint — as well as the fundamental right to explore, tinker, create, and innovate along the frontier of emerging technologies. In this episode, I talk with Kevin Welch and David Hensley about why digital rights matter to our analog lives; whether and how the genies of rampant technological innovation can be forced back into the bottle; how to think about the inherent tensions between individuals and institutions; what esoteric traditions and superhero movies may have to teach us about living in the 21st century, and considerably more. I also make entirely too many references to Michael Crichton novels.I've collaborated with EFF-Austin on previous episodes of Future Fossils you may also enjoy:33 - Jon Lebkowsky (Pluralist Utopias & The World Wide Web's Wild West)92 - Panel: The Pre- and Post-History of VR, Surveillance, and Swarm IntelligenceAgain, Patreon is really the place you want to be checking out the resources for this show (and, of course, it's the place to go to take a shower in the awesome stuff I reserve for supporters).

The Joe and Smith Podcast: Read the Book of Mormon with us

Joe and Smith introduce each other and their podcast. The guys discuss some early LDS lore and invent a new early saint called W.W. Wphelps, who may have had a hand in inventing the World Wide Web. Joe notices his tendency to want definitive truth when learning something new. The guys are going to use swear words and sometimes offend, but not for the sake of being offensive. Joe and Smith are pretty convinced that they are the worst people, self-esteem is not their strong suit, but they're working on it. The guys bring up how they still hang on to some doctrines from the church, like Brian Regan. Smith says that he wants the podcast to help people who feel like they're on the outside who may be dealing with some trauma and sadness from their families and from the church. The guys started watching Under the Banner of Heaven (2022), aka Garfield, on Hulu. Joe feels like he has only ever won one fight with the church and that it was deciding not to go anymore. The guys give an overview of the process of having one's name removed from the church's records. The BOM has 239 chapters. Goddammit. Smith denies being a Star Wars fanboy, but he really is. The guys bare their testimony that the BOM was written by a fraud (JS) and written for purposes such as gaining power and money. It's a secret combination. They devolve into some righteous indignation toward JS, but they steer out of it by singing a hymn. Smith feels like the overwhelming pressure for perfection in the church conditioned him to lie, while Joe feels like he told the truth and was just “less than”. The guys notice that it may be easier to stay in the church if you don't take the church very seriously.  Smith reads us the title page, which is super confusing. The guys try to piece together some of the details but give up and refer the listener to people like Jeremy Runnells and John Dehlin, aka Jahndalyn. Smith points out how easy it is to get distracted by the levels of details and minutia in the BOM, but that it's all made up.  The guys read the introduction to the BOM, which essentially positions itself as Bible fanfiction. Smith tells about getting duped by fake Harry Potter fanfiction before book 5. Russel M Nelson is a bastard. The guys take some issue with the church adding the word “among” to the intro page. Smith knows a lot about the temple, but he'll get into that later. Smith talks about how he tried to “make up” for the church's sexism by elevating women to a higher level.  Mormon Stories Podcast 480-482: JEREMY RUNNELLS AND HIS LETTER TO A CES DIRECTOR JUNE 18, 2014 https://mormonstories.org/podcast/jeremy-runnells-and-his-letter-to-a-ces-director/    CES Letter My Search for Answers to my Mormon Doubts BY JEREMY RUNNELLS https://cesletter.org/    THE DOLLOP Dave Anthony | Gareth Reynolds https://allthingscomedy.com/podcast/the-dollop    Music Provided by Eric VanAusdal with permission from the artist.  The Book of Mormon is publicly available at churchofjesuschrist.org   Email us at joeandsmithpod@gmail.com   Remember who you are and what you stand for

Stewart Brand has long been famous if you know who he is, but for many people outside the counterculture, early computing, or the environmental movement, he is perhaps best known for his famous mantra "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." Steve Jobs's endorsement of these words as his code to live by is fitting; Brand has played many roles, but one of the most important is as a model for how to live. In Whole Earth: The Many Lives of Stewart Brand (Penguin, 2022), the contradictions are striking: A blond-haired WASP with a modest family inheritance, Brand went to Exeter and Stanford and was an army veteran, but in California in the 1960s he became an artist and a photographer in the thick of the LSD revolution. While tripping on acid on the roof of his building, he envisioned how valuable it would be for humans to see a photograph of the planet they shared from space, an image that in the end landed on the cover of his Whole Earth Catalog, the defining publication of the counterculture. He married a Native American woman and was committed to protecting indigenous culture, which connected to a broader environmentalist mission that has been a throughline of his life. At the same time, he has outraged purists because of his pragmatic embrace of useful technologies, including nuclear power, in the fight against climate change. The famous tagline promise of his catalog was "Access to Tools"; with rare exceptions, he rejected politics for a focus on direct power. It was no wonder, then, that he was early to the promise of the computer revolution and helped define it for the wider world. John Markoff was one of a team of New York Times reporters who won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting. He has covered Silicon Valley since 1977, wrote the first account of the World Wide Web in 1993, and broke the story of Google's self-driving car in 2010.

Stewart Brand has long been famous if you know who he is, but for many people outside the counterculture, early computing, or the environmental movement, he is perhaps best known for his famous mantra "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." Steve Jobs's endorsement of these words as his code to live by is fitting; Brand has played many roles, but one of the most important is as a model for how to live. In Whole Earth: The Many Lives of Stewart Brand (Penguin, 2022), the contradictions are striking: A blond-haired WASP with a modest family inheritance, Brand went to Exeter and Stanford and was an army veteran, but in California in the 1960s he became an artist and a photographer in the thick of the LSD revolution. While tripping on acid on the roof of his building, he envisioned how valuable it would be for humans to see a photograph of the planet they shared from space, an image that in the end landed on the cover of his Whole Earth Catalog, the defining publication of the counterculture. He married a Native American woman and was committed to protecting indigenous culture, which connected to a broader environmentalist mission that has been a throughline of his life. At the same time, he has outraged purists because of his pragmatic embrace of useful technologies, including nuclear power, in the fight against climate change.

This week, we present the most recent episode of John's other show, 1999: The Podcast, which features a conversation with American Hysteria's Chelsey Weber-Smith about The Blair Witch Project. Starring Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams, and Joshua Leonard as themselves – or people who happen to have their exact names – and written and directed by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez, 1999's 10th-highest grossing film, The Blair Witch Project was produced on a budget of less than a half million dollars and grossed $248.6 million at the box office. One of the founding films in the "found footage" genre, the film was perhaps most famous for the unprecedented marketing campaign that led up to its release. The movie made innovative use of a relatively novel outlet called "the World Wide Web" and deliberately blurred the lines between fact and fiction, giving the film an air of reality that actually fooled some its audience into believing they were watching real documentary footage. Heralded by critics for its ingenuity as well as its genuine scares, Blair Witch may well have been the buzziest of buzzy movies ever. But its legacy is slightly more complicated. While it was a huge hit with the public at the time, it is less liked by audiences now, who often complain that the movie doesn't hold up on its own, having relied too much on the multimedia "project" of which the film is merely the final ingredient. 1999: The Podcast on Twitter: @1999thePodcast Chelsey on Twitter: @AmerHysteria

Before Facebook, there was MySpace. People logged into a web page every day to write to friends, show off photos, and play music. Some of the things we still do on social networks. The world had been shifting to personal use of computers since the early days when time sharing systems were used in universities. Then came the Bulletin Board Systems of the 80s. But those were somewhat difficult to use and prone to be taken over by people like the ones who went on to found DefCon and hacking collectives.  Then in the 1990s computers and networks started to get easier to use. We got tools like AOL Instant Messenger and a Microsoft knockoff called Messenger. It's different ‘cause it doesn't say Instant. The rise of the World Wide Web meant that people could build their own websites in online communities. We got these online communities like Geocities in 1994, where users could build their own little web page. Some were notes from classes at universities; others how to be better at dressing goth. They tried to sort people by communities they called cities, and then each member got an address number in their community. They grew fast and even went public before being acquired by Yahoo! in 1999. Tripod showed up the year after Geocities came out and got acquired by Yahoo! competitor Lycos in 1998, signaling that portal services in a pre-modern search engine world would be getting into more content to show ads to eyeballs. Angelfire was another that started in 1996 and ended up in the Lycos portfolio as well. More people had more pages and that meant more eyeballs to show ads to. No knowledge of HTML was really required but it did help to know some. The GeoCities idea about communities was a good one. Turns out people liked hanging out with others like themselves online. People liked reading thoughts and ideas and seeing photos if they ever bothered to finish downloading. But forget to bookmark a page and it could be lost in the cyberbits or whatever happened to pages when we weren't looking at them.  The concept of six agrees of Kevin Bacon had been rolling around a bit, so Andrew Weinreich got the idea to do something similar to Angelfire and the next year created SixDegrees.com. It was easy to evolve the concept to bookmark pages by making connections on the site. Except to get people into the site and signing up the model appeared to be the flip side: enter real world friends and family and they were invited to join up. Accepted contacts could then post on each others bulletin boards or send messages to one another. We could also see who our connections were connected to, thus allowing us to say “oh I met that person at a party.” Within a few years the web of contacts model was so successful that it had a few million users and was sold for over $100 million. By 2000 it was shut down but had proven there was a model there that could work. Xanga came along the next year as a weblog and social networking site but never made it  to the level of success. Classmates.com is still out there as well, having been founded in 1995 to build a web of contacts for finding those friends from high school we lost contact with. Then came Friendster and MySpace in 2003. Friendster came out of the gate faster but faded away quicker. These took the concepts of SixDegrees.com where users invited friends and family but went a little further, allowing people to post on one another boards.  MySpace went a little further. They used some of the same concepts Geocities used and allowed people to customize their own web pages. When some people learned HTML to edit their pages, they got the bug to create. And so a new generation of web developers was created as people learned to layout pages and do basic web programming in order to embed files, flash content, change backgrounds, and insert little DHTML or even JavaScript snippets. MySpace was co-founded by Chris DeWolfe, Uber Whitcomb, Josh Berman, and Tom Anderson while working at an incubator or software holding company called eUniverse, which was later renamed to Intermix Media. Brad Greenspan founded that after going to UCLA and then jumping headfirst into the startup universe. He created Entertainment Universe, then raised $2M in capital from Lehman Brothers, another $5M from others and bought a young site called CD Universe, which was selling Compact Disks online. He reverse merged that into an empty public shell company, like a modern SPAC works, and was suddenly the CEO of a public company, expanding into online DVD sales. Remember, these were the days leading up to the dot com bubble. There was a lot of money floating around. They expanded into dating sites and other membership programs. We'd think of monthly member fees as Monthly Recurring Revenue now, but at the time there was so much free stuff on the internet that those most sites just gave it away and built revenue streams on advertising revenues. CDs and DVDs have data on them. Data can be shared. Napster proved how lucrative that could be by then. Maybe that was something eUniverse should get into. DeWolfe created a tool called Sitegeist, which was a site with a little dating, a little instant messaging, and a little hyper localized search. It was just a school project but got him thinking. Then, like millions of us were about to do, he met Tom. Tom was a kid from the valley who'd been tinkering with computers for years, as “Lord Flathead” who'd been busted hacking as a kid before going off to the University of California at Berkeley before coming home to LA to do software QA for an online storage company. The company he worked for got acquired as a depressed asset by eUniverse in 2002, along with Josh Berman. They got matched up with DeWolfe, and saw this crazy Friendster coming out of nowhere and decided to build something like it. They had a domain they weren't using called MySpace.com, which they were going to use for another online storage project. So they grabbed Aber Whitcomb, fired up a ColdFusion IDE and given the other properties eUniverse was sitting on had the expertise to get everything up and running fairly quickly. So they launched MySpace internally first and then had little contests to see who could get the most people to sign up. eUniverse had tens of millions of users on the other properties so they emailed them too. Within two years they had 20 million users and were the centerpiece of the eUniverse portfolio. Wanting in on what the young kids were doing these days, Rupert Murdoch and News Corporation, or NewsCorp for short, picked up the company for $580 Million in cash. It's like an episode of Succession, right? After the acquisition of Myspace by news corporation, Myspace continued its exponential growth. Later in the year, the site started signing up 200,000 new users every day. About a year later, it was registering approx. 320,000 users each day. They localized into different languages and became the biggest website in the US. So they turned on the advertising machine, paying back their purchase price by doing $800 million in revenue back to NewsCorp.  MySpace had become the first big social media platform that was always free that allowed users to freely express their minds and thoughts with millions of other users, provided they were 13 years or older. They restricted access to profiles of people younger than 16 years in such a way that they couldn't be viewed by people over 18 years old. That was to keep sexual predators from accessing the profile of a minor. Kids turned out to be a challenge. In 2006, during extensive research the company began detecting and deleting profiles of registered sex offenders which had started showing up on the platform.  Myspace partnered with Sentinel Tech Holdings Corporation to build a searchable, national database containing names, physical descriptions, and other identity details known as the Sentinel Safe which allowed them to keep track of over half a million registered sex offenders from  U.S. government records. This way they developed the first national database of convicted sex offenders to protect kids on the platform, which they then provided to state attorney generals when the sex offenders tried to use MySpace.  Facebook was created in 2004 and Twitter was created in 2006. They picked up market share, but MySpace continued to do well in 2007 then not as well in 2008. By 2009, Facebook surpassed Myspace in the number of unique U.S. visitors. Myspace began a rapid decline and lost members fast. Network effects can disappear as quickly as they are created. They kept the site simple and basic; people would log in, make new friends, and share music, photos, and chat with people. Facebook and Twitter constantly introduced new features for users to explore; this kept the existing users on the site and attracted more users. Then social media companies like twitter began to target users on Myspace.  New and more complicated issues kept coming up. Pages were vandalized, there were phishing attacks, malware got posted to the site, and there were outages as the ColdFusion code had been easy to implement but proved harder to hyperscale. In fact, few had needed to scale a site like MySpace had in that era. Not only were users abandoning the platform, but employees at Myspace started to leave. The changes to MySpace's executive ranks went down quicky in June 2009 by a layoff of 37.5% of its workforce reducing, the employees went down from 1,600 to 1,000. Myspace attempted to rebrand itself as primarily a music site to try and gain the audience they lost. They changed the layout to make it look more attractive but continued a quick decline just as Facebook and Twitter were in the midst of a meteoric rise. In 2011 News Corporation sold Myspace to Specific Media and Justin Timberlake for around $35 million. Timberlake wanted to make a platform where fans could go and communicate with their favorite entertainers, listen to new music, watch videos, share music, and connect with others who liked the same things. Like Geocities but for music lovers. They never really managed to turn things around. In 2016, Myspace and its parent company were acquired by Time Inc. and later Time inc. was in turn purchased by the Meredith Corporation. A few months later the news cycle on and about the platform became less positive. A hacker retrieved 427 million Myspace passwords and tried to sell them for $2,800. In 2019, Myspace accidentally deleted over 50 million digital files including photos, songs, and videos during a server migration. Everything up to 2015 was erased. In some ways that's not the worst thing, considering some of the history left on older profiles. MySpace continues to push music today, with shows that include original content, like interviews with artists. It's more of a way for artists to project their craft than a social network. It's featured content, either sponsored by a label or artist, or from artists so popular or with such an intriguing story their label doesn't need to promote them. There are elements of a social network left, but nothing like the other social networks of the day. And there's some beauty in that simplicity. MySpace was always more than just a social networking website; it was the social network that kickstarted the web 2.0 experience we know today. Tom was everyone who joined the networks first friend. So he became the first major social media star. MySpace became the most visited social networking site in the world, often surpassing Google in number of visitors. Then the network effect moved elsewhere, and those who inherited the users analyzed what caused them to move away from MySpace and either through copying features, out innovating, or acquisition, have managed to remain dominant for over a decade. But there's always something else right around the corner. One of the major reasons people abandoned MySpace was to be with those who thought just like them. When Facebook was only available to college kids it had a young appeal. It slowly leaked into the mainstream and my grandmother started typing the word like when I posted pictures of my kid. Because we grew up. They didn't attempt to monetize too early. They remained stable. They didn't spend more than they needed to keep the site going, so never lost control to investors. Meanwhile, MySpace grew to well over a thousand people to support a web property that would take a dozen to support today. Facebook may move fast and break things. But they do so because they saw what happens when we don't.

Theophile Bruguier was a fur trader who moved south out of Monreal after a stint as an attorney in Quebec before his fiancé died. He became friends with Chief War Eagle of the Yankton Sioux. We call him Chief, but he left the Santee rather than have a bloody fight over who would be the next chief. The Santee were being pushed down from the Great Lakes area of Minnesota and Wisconsin by the growing Ojibwe and were pushing further and further south. There are two main divisions of the Sioux people: the Dakota and the Lakota. There are two main ethnic groups of the Dakota, the Eastern, sometimes called the Santee and the Western, or the Yankton. After the issues with the his native Santee, he was welcomed by the Yankton, where he had two wives and seven children.  Chief War Eagle then spent time with the white people moving into the area in greater and greater numbers. They even went to war and he acted as a messenger for them in the War of 1812 and then became a messenger for the American Fur Company and a guide along the Missouri. After the war, he was elected a chief and helped negotiate peace treaties. He married two of his daughters off to Theophile Bruguier, who he sailed the Missouri with on trips between St Louis and Fort Pierre in the Dakota territory.  The place where Theophile settled was where the Big Sioux and Missouri rivers meet. Two water ways for trade made his cabin a perfect place to trade, and the chief died a couple of years later and was buried in what we now call War Eagle Park, a beautiful hike above Sioux City. His city. Around the same time, the Sioux throughout the Minnesota River were moved to South Dakota to live on reservations, having lost their lands and war broke out in the 1860s.  Back at the Bruguier land, more French moved into the area after Bruguier opened a trading post and was one of the 17 white people that voted in the first Woodbury County election, once Wahkaw County was changed to Woodbury to honor Levi Woodbury, a former Supreme Court Justice.  Bruguier sold some of his land to Joseph Leonais in 1852. He sold it to a land surveyor, Dr. John Cook, who founded Sioux City in 1854. By 1860, with the westward expansion of the US, the population had already risen to 400. Steamboats, railroads, livestock yards, and by 1880 they were over 7,000 souls, growing to 6 times that by the time Bruguier died in 1896. Seemingly more comfortable with those of the First Nations, his body is interred with Chief War Eagle and his first two wives on the bluffs overlooking Sioux City, totally unrecognizable by then. The goods this new industry brought had to cross the rivers. Before there were bridges to cross the sometimes angry rivers, ranchers had to ferry cattle across. Sometimes cattle fell off the barges and once they were moving, they couldn't stop for a single head of cattle. Ted Waitt's ancestors rescued cattle and sold them, eventually homesteading their own ranch. And that ranch is where Ted started Gateway Computers in 1985 with his friend Mike Hammond.  Michael Dell started Dell computers in 1984 and grew the company on the backs of a strong mail order business. He went from selling repair services and upgrades to selling full systems. He wasn't the only one to build a company based on a mail and phone order business model in the 1980s and 1990s. Before the internet that was the most modern way to transact business.  Ted Waitt went to the University of Iowa in Iowa City a couple of years before Michael Dell went to the University of Texas. He started out in marketing and then spent a couple of years working for a reseller and repair store in Des Moines before he decided to start his own company. Gateway began life in 1985 as the Texas Instruments PC Network, or TIPC Network for short. They sold stuff for Texas Instruments computers like modems, printers, and other peripherals. The TI-99/4A had been released in 1979 and was discontinued a year before. It was a niche hobbyist market even by then, but the Texas Instruments Personal Computer had shipped in 1983 and came with an 8088 CPU. It was similar to an IBM PC and came with a DOS. But Texas Instruments wasn't a clone maker and the machines weren't fully Personal Computer compatible. Instead, there were differences.  They found some success and made more than $100,000 in just a few months, so brought in Tedd's brother Norm. Compaq, Dell, and a bunch of other companies were springing up to build computers. Anyone who had sold parts for an 8088 and used DOS on it knew how to build a computer. And after a few years of supplying parts, they had a good idea how to find inexpensive components to build their own computers. They could rescue parts and sell them to meatpacking plants as full-blown computers. They just needed some Intel chips, some boards, which were pretty common by then, some RAM, which was dirt cheap due to a number of foreign companies dumping RAM into the US market. They built some computers and got up to $1 million in revenue in 1986. Then they became an IBM-compatible personal computer when they found the right mix of parts. It was close to what Texas Instruments sold, but came with a color monitor and two floppy disk drives, which were important in that era before all the computers came with spinning hard drives. Their first computer sold for just under $2,000, which made it half what a Texas Instruments computer cost. They found the same thing that Dell had found: the R&D and marketing overhead at big companies meant they could be more cost-competitive. They couldn't call the computers a TIPC Network though. Sioux City, Iowa became the Gateway to the Dakotas, and beyond, so they changed their name to Gateway 2000.  Gateway 2000 then released an 80286, which we lovingly called the 286, in 1988 and finally left the ranch to move into the city. They also put Waitt's marketing classes to use and slapped a photo of the cows from the ranch in a magazine that said “Computers from Iowa?” and one of the better tactics for long-term loyalty, they gave cash bonuses to employees based on their profits. Within a year, they jumped to $12 million in sales. Then $70 million in 1989, and moved to South Dakota in 1990 to avoid paying state income tax. The cow turned out to be popular, so they kept Holstein cows in their ads and even added them to the box. Everyone knew what those Gateway boxes looked like. Like Dell, they hired great tech support who seemed to love their jobs at Gateway and would help with any problems people found. They brought in the adults in 1990. Executives from big firms. They had been the first to Mae color monitors standard and now, with the release of Windows they became the first big computer seller to standardize on the platform.  They released a notebook computer in 1992. The HandBook was their first computer that didn't do well. It could have been the timing, but in the midst of a recession in a time when most households were getting computers, a low cost computer sold well and sales hit $1 billion. Yet they had trouble scaling to their ship hundreds of computers a day. They opened an office in Ireland and ramped up sales overseas. Then they went public in 1993, raising $150 million. The Wiatt's hung on to 85% of the company and used the capital raised in the IPO to branch into other areas to complete the Gateway offering: modems, networking equipment, printers, and more support representatives.  Sales in 1994 hit $2.7 billion a year. They added another support center a few hours down the Missouri River in Kansas City. They opened showrooms. They added a manufacturing plant in Malaysia. They bought Osborne Computer. They opened showrooms and by 1996 Gateway spent tens of millions a year in advertising. The ads worked and they became a household name. They became a top ten company in computing with $5 billion in sales. Dell was the only direct personal computer supplier who was bigger.  They opened a new sales channel: the World Wide Web. Many still called after they looked up prices at first but by 1997 they did hundreds of millions in sales on the web. By then, Ethernet had become the standard network protocol so they introduced the E-Series, which came with networks. They bought Advanced Logic Research to expand into servers. They launched a dialup provider called gateway.net.  By the late 1990s, the ocean of companies who sold personal computers was red. Anyone could head down to the local shop, buy some parts, and build their own personal computer. Dell, HP, Compaq, and others dropped their prices and Gateway was left needing a new approach. Three years before Apple opened their first store, Gateway launched Gateway Country, retail stores that sold the computer, the dialup service, and they went big fast, launching 58 stores in 26 states in a short period of time. With 2000 right around the corner, they also changed their name to Gateway, Inc. Price pressure continued to hammer away at them and they couldn't find talent so they moved to San Diego.  1999 proved a pivotal year for many in technology. The run-up to the dot com bubble meant new web properties popped up constantly. AOL had more capital than they could spend and invested heavily into Gateway to take over the ISP business, which had grown to over half a million subscribers. They threw in free Internet access with the computers, opened more channels into different sectors, and expanded the retail stores to over 200. Some thought Waitt needed to let go and let someone with more executive experience come in. So long-time AT&T exec Jeff Weitzen, who had joined the company in 1998 took over as CEO. By then Waitt was worth billions and it made sense that maybe he could go run a cattle ranch. By then his former partner Mike Hammond had a little business fixing up cars so why not explore something new.  Waitt stayed on as chairman as Weitzen reorganized the company. But the prices of computers continued to fall. To keep up, Gateway released the Astro computer in 2000. This was an affordable, small desktop that had a built-in monitor, CPU, and speakers. It ran a 400 MHz Intel Celeron, had a CD-ROM, and a 4.3 GB hard drive, with 64 Megabytes of memory, a floppy, a modem, Windows 98 Second Edition, Norton Anti-Virus, USB ports, and the Microsoft Works Suite. All this came in at $799. Gateway had led the market with Windows and other firsts they jumped on board with. They had been aggressive. The first iMac had been released in 1998 and this seemed like they were following that with a cheaper computer. Gateway Country stores grew over 400+ stores. But the margins had gotten razor thin. That meant profits were down. Waitt came back to run the company, the US Securities and Exchange Commission filed charges for fraud against Weitzen, the former controller, and the former CFO, and that raged on for years. In that time, Gateway got into TVs, cameras, MP3 players, and in 2004 acquired eMachines, a rapidly growing economy PC manufacturer. Their CEO, Wayne Inouye then came in to run Gateway. He had been an executive at The Good Guys! and Best Buy before taking the helm of eMachines in 2001, helping them open sales channels in retail stores. But Gateway didn't get as much a foothold in retail. That laptop failure from the 1980s stuck with Gateway. They never managed to ship a game-changing laptop. Then the market started to shift to laptops. Other companies left on that market but Gateway never seemed able to ship the right device. They instead branched into consumer electronics. The dot com bubble burst and they never recovered. The financial woes with the SEC hurt trust in the brand. The outsourcing hurt the trust in the brand. The acquisition of a budget manufacturer hurt the brand. Apple managed to open retail stores to great success, while preserving relationships with big box retailers. But Gateway lost that route to market when they opened their own stores. Then Acer acquired Gateway in 2007. They can now be found at Walmart, having been relaunched as a budget brand of Acer, a company who the big American firms once outsourced to, but who now stands on their own two feed as a maker of personal computers.

Episode 23 - What is Web3 and how does it pertain to crypto? I need to start off by saying this is not financial advice so if you are looking for that this show isn't for you. The content of this podcast episode is for informational purposes only. The opinions expressed here are not meant to be taken as financial, investment, or any other advice. Before we begin into what Web3 or Web 3.0 is, let's take a step back. The very first version or first generation of the internet available to use, we know as the World Wide Web. This goes back to the early 90s, where it was primarily made up of static web pages connected by hyperlinks. Some of you may remember those annoying dial up tone high pitch squeals that sounded like this. That was the very first of its kind and we called it Web 1.0. Next came Web 2.0, the 2nd generation where the internet was used as a platform. We saw the rise of e-commerce sites like Amazon and eBay as well as social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. People had the ability to interact with online platforms and publish content of their own websites as well. Cloud computing and smartphones were the large accelerators of growth for this. Some people believe the problem with Web 2.0 is that internet users are required to surrender their personal data. If users want to use "free" services provided by the tech giants of the industry, they collect all the users' information and preferences while using these services. This personal information is then sold to third parties and often used to send specific ads to its users. And this is where the 3rd generation called Web3 or Web 3.0 comes in. Web 3.0 is believed to bring Internet technology that has the advantage of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and blockchain all together unified to achieve real-world human communication. It can potentially be open, trustless, and permissionless which we'll touch on in a bit. But first in this episode we will take a look at what Web 3.0 is, where it is now, where it's possibly going in the future, and why it pertains to cryptocurrency.

Hi, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Thursday, April 7th, 2022. Today, we’ll be talking about a potential food crisis in Germany… is this a sign of things to come? The always trustworthy CDC says that there is a steep decline with teens’ mental health… I wonder why that is… Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is directing that economic migrants get every opportunity to stay once the Title 42 barrier is removed — regardless of the huge damage he inflicts on ordinary Americans, and finally, Black Lives Matter took $6 million and dropped it on a 6,500-square-foot mansion… for black lives I’m sure.

Germany on the Brink of Food Crisis as Prices Increase by 20–50% https://neonnettle.com/news/18731-germany-on-the-brink-of-food-crisis-as-prices-increase-by-20-50- Germany is steeping toward the return of the dreaded Weimar hyperinflation as consumers brace themselves for massive price hikes for everyday goods and groceries at a whopping 20 to 50% rise.Even before the war in Ukraine, prices soared by five percent “across the product range” due to increased energy prices, HDE President Josef Sanktjohanser warned on Friday.Russia’s invasion is now pummeling economies and the supply chain as more price increases are on the horizon.“The second wave of price increases is coming, and it will certainly be in double figures,” Sanktjohanser warned. The first retail chains have already started to raise their prices in Germany, and the rest will likely follow, according to the president of the trade association. Popular retail chains such as Aldi, Edeka, and Globus, announced they would raise their prices.From today, meat and butter will be “significantly more expensive” at Aldi due to price hikes from suppliers. Earlier this year, it was announced that Germany’s cost of living rose at the highest level since reunification, with everyday goods increasing by an average of 7.3%.According to the federal statistics agency Destatis, the jump from January’s figure of 5.1 percent to February’s 7.3 percent reflected the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which made oil and gas prices soaring.According to a recently published survey by the Ifo Institute, almost all companies in Germany’s food retail sector are planning price increases. CDC warns of a steep decline in teen mental health https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2022/03/31/student-mental-health-decline-cdc/ This from the Washington Post, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of an accelerating mental health crisis among adolescents, with more than 4 in 10 teens reporting that they feel “persistently sad or hopeless,” and 1 in 5 saying they have contemplated suicide, according to the results of a survey published Thursday. “These data echo a cry for help,” said Debra Houry, a deputy director at the CDC.She also added that the COVID-19 pandemic has created traumatic stressors that have the potential to further erode students’ mental well-being… yes I’m sure that it doesn’t have anything to do with the numerous mandates or shut downs that you imposed Debra… The findings draw on a survey of a nationally representative sample of 7,700 teens conducted in the first six months of 2021, when they were in the midst of their first full pandemic school year. They were questioned on a range of topics, including their mental health, alcohol and drug use, and whether they had encountered violence at home or at school. They were also asked about whether they had encountered racism. Although young people were spared the brunt of the virus — falling ill and dying at much lower rates than older people — they might still pay a steep price for the pandemic, having come of age while weathering isolation, uncertainty, economic turmoil and, for many, grief. The article then goes on to talk about race and LGBTQ students because we HAVE to force feed kids sex and racial identity politics right? Folks… get your kids out of government-run schools. End of story. Border Chrief Alejandro Mayorkas’ Leaked Title 42 Plan: Ensure Migrants Get ‘Any’ Way to Stay https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2022/04/05/mayorkas-title-42-strategy-ensure-migrants-get-any-way-to-stay/ This is from Breibart, Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is directing that economic migrants get every opportunity to stay once the Title 42 barrier is removed — regardless of the huge damage he inflicts on ordinary Americans. Mayorkjas’ intentions are described in his February strategy, which was leaked to Breitbart on April 4. The February strategy is titled “DHS Southwest Border Mass Irregular Migration Contingency Plan,” and it says on page 16: Titled: Secretary’s Intent. USE PICTURE: The purpose of this plan is to describe a proactive approach that humanely prevents and responds to surges in irregular migration across the U.S. [southern border]. This will be done while ensuring that migrants can apply for any form of relief or protection [emphasis added] for which they may be eligible, including asylum, withholding of removal, and protection from removal under the regulations implementing United States obligations under the Convention Against Torture. To maximize benefits for migrants, Mayorkas minimizes the detention and deportation of migrants — even though federal law generally denies the entry of foreign workers and economic migrants into Americans’ homeland. His plan sketches ways for border officials to squeeze many migrants through small doorways in the nation’s border: Former immigration judge Andrew Arthur, told Breibart News in an interview, that the parole side-door “is a very limited authority that Congress has given for exceptional situations,” such as a sick airline passenger. It “is very narrowly written [for small numbers of people], but the administration has blown right past the limitations,” he said. In February, up to 165,000 migrants arrived at the border, and Mayorkas admitted 74,000 under various legal claims. Very few of the arrivals were detained, and few prior arrivals were deported, despite the federal law. On April 26, the Supreme Court will consider a judgment by federal judges that seeks to make Mayorkas comply with federal law. The Cuban-born Mayorkas is a pro-migration zealot who argued in 2013 that Americans’ homeland “always has been, and forever will remain a nation of immigrants.” Only about one-third of Americans accept the “nation of immigrants” narrative, according to a survey by a pro-migration group. His plan ignores the reasonable and rational economic concerns of roughly at least 100 million citizens of the United States.

Black Lives Matter took $6 million and dropped it on a 6,500-square-foot mansion and tried to cover it up using a shell corporation https://notthebee.com/article/black-lives-matter-took-6-million-of-the-groups-money-and-dropped-it-on-a-6500-square-foot-mansion-and-then-tried-to-cover-it-up-using-a-shell-corporation?fbclid=IwAR1VNFuJTOOpbWOz8kEXeaziqSUUttVyhKgMc1uGVDrNWEjkUCfirPNF9NE This is from our friends at Not the Bee… It's far from a box, with more than 6,500 square feet, more than half a dozen bedrooms and bathrooms, several fireplaces, a soundstage, a pool and bungalow, and parking for more than 20 cars, according to real-estate listings. The California property was purchased for nearly $6 million in cash in October 2020 with money that had been donated to [Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation]. The transaction has not been previously reported, and Black Lives Matter's leadership had hoped to keep the house's existence a secret.

Hi, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Thursday, April 7th, 2022. Today, we’ll be talking about a potential food crisis in Germany… is this a sign of things to come? The always trustworthy CDC says that there is a steep decline with teens’ mental health… I wonder why that is… Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is directing that economic migrants get every opportunity to stay once the Title 42 barrier is removed — regardless of the huge damage he inflicts on ordinary Americans, and finally, Black Lives Matter took $6 million and dropped it on a 6,500-square-foot mansion… for black lives I’m sure.

Germany on the Brink of Food Crisis as Prices Increase by 20–50% https://neonnettle.com/news/18731-germany-on-the-brink-of-food-crisis-as-prices-increase-by-20-50- Germany is steeping toward the return of the dreaded Weimar hyperinflation as consumers brace themselves for massive price hikes for everyday goods and groceries at a whopping 20 to 50% rise.Even before the war in Ukraine, prices soared by five percent “across the product range” due to increased energy prices, HDE President Josef Sanktjohanser warned on Friday.Russia’s invasion is now pummeling economies and the supply chain as more price increases are on the horizon.“The second wave of price increases is coming, and it will certainly be in double figures,” Sanktjohanser warned. The first retail chains have already started to raise their prices in Germany, and the rest will likely follow, according to the president of the trade association. Popular retail chains such as Aldi, Edeka, and Globus, announced they would raise their prices.From today, meat and butter will be “significantly more expensive” at Aldi due to price hikes from suppliers. Earlier this year, it was announced that Germany’s cost of living rose at the highest level since reunification, with everyday goods increasing by an average of 7.3%.According to the federal statistics agency Destatis, the jump from January’s figure of 5.1 percent to February’s 7.3 percent reflected the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which made oil and gas prices soaring.According to a recently published survey by the Ifo Institute, almost all companies in Germany’s food retail sector are planning price increases. CDC warns of a steep decline in teen mental health https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2022/03/31/student-mental-health-decline-cdc/ This from the Washington Post, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of an accelerating mental health crisis among adolescents, with more than 4 in 10 teens reporting that they feel “persistently sad or hopeless,” and 1 in 5 saying they have contemplated suicide, according to the results of a survey published Thursday. “These data echo a cry for help,” said Debra Houry, a deputy director at the CDC.She also added that the COVID-19 pandemic has created traumatic stressors that have the potential to further erode students’ mental well-being… yes I’m sure that it doesn’t have anything to do with the numerous mandates or shut downs that you imposed Debra… The findings draw on a survey of a nationally representative sample of 7,700 teens conducted in the first six months of 2021, when they were in the midst of their first full pandemic school year. They were questioned on a range of topics, including their mental health, alcohol and drug use, and whether they had encountered violence at home or at school. They were also asked about whether they had encountered racism. Although young people were spared the brunt of the virus — falling ill and dying at much lower rates than older people — they might still pay a steep price for the pandemic, having come of age while weathering isolation, uncertainty, economic turmoil and, for many, grief. The article then goes on to talk about race and LGBTQ students because we HAVE to force feed kids sex and racial identity politics right? Folks… get your kids out of government-run schools. End of story. Border Chrief Alejandro Mayorkas’ Leaked Title 42 Plan: Ensure Migrants Get ‘Any’ Way to Stay https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2022/04/05/mayorkas-title-42-strategy-ensure-migrants-get-any-way-to-stay/ This is from Breibart, Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas is directing that economic migrants get every opportunity to stay once the Title 42 barrier is removed — regardless of the huge damage he inflicts on ordinary Americans. Mayorkjas’ intentions are described in his February strategy, which was leaked to Breitbart on April 4. The February strategy is titled “DHS Southwest Border Mass Irregular Migration Contingency Plan,” and it says on page 16: Titled: Secretary’s Intent. USE PICTURE: The purpose of this plan is to describe a proactive approach that humanely prevents and responds to surges in irregular migration across the U.S. [southern border]. This will be done while ensuring that migrants can apply for any form of relief or protection [emphasis added] for which they may be eligible, including asylum, withholding of removal, and protection from removal under the regulations implementing United States obligations under the Convention Against Torture. To maximize benefits for migrants, Mayorkas minimizes the detention and deportation of migrants — even though federal law generally denies the entry of foreign workers and economic migrants into Americans’ homeland. His plan sketches ways for border officials to squeeze many migrants through small doorways in the nation’s border: Former immigration judge Andrew Arthur, told Breibart News in an interview, that the parole side-door “is a very limited authority that Congress has given for exceptional situations,” such as a sick airline passenger. It “is very narrowly written [for small numbers of people], but the administration has blown right past the limitations,” he said. In February, up to 165,000 migrants arrived at the border, and Mayorkas admitted 74,000 under various legal claims. Very few of the arrivals were detained, and few prior arrivals were deported, despite the federal law. On April 26, the Supreme Court will consider a judgment by federal judges that seeks to make Mayorkas comply with federal law. The Cuban-born Mayorkas is a pro-migration zealot who argued in 2013 that Americans’ homeland “always has been, and forever will remain a nation of immigrants.” Only about one-third of Americans accept the “nation of immigrants” narrative, according to a survey by a pro-migration group. His plan ignores the reasonable and rational economic concerns of roughly at least 100 million citizens of the United States. Let’s take a moment to talk tech… The world in which we live is moving towards total techno tyranny at an incredible rate. This tyranny includes spying, censorship, data theft all through electronic means. Iron Apples is a small cybersecurity consultancy firm seeking to give churches, organizations, businesses, schools and individuals the education, resources and tools needed to be able to circumvent techno tyranny.

Black Lives Matter took $6 million and dropped it on a 6,500-square-foot mansion and tried to cover it up using a shell corporation https://notthebee.com/article/black-lives-matter-took-6-million-of-the-groups-money-and-dropped-it-on-a-6500-square-foot-mansion-and-then-tried-to-cover-it-up-using-a-shell-corporation?fbclid=IwAR1VNFuJTOOpbWOz8kEXeaziqSUUttVyhKgMc1uGVDrNWEjkUCfirPNF9NE This is from our friends at Not the Bee… It's far from a box, with more than 6,500 square feet, more than half a dozen bedrooms and bathrooms, several fireplaces, a soundstage, a pool and bungalow, and parking for more than 20 cars, according to real-estate listings. The California property was purchased for nearly $6 million in cash in October 2020 with money that had been donated to [Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation]. The transaction has not been previously reported, and Black Lives Matter's leadership had hoped to keep the house's existence a secret. Documents, emails, and other communications I've seen about the luxury property's purchase and day-to-day operation suggest that it has been handled in ways that blur, or cross, boundaries between the charity and private companies owned by some of its leaders. It creates the impression that money donated to the cause of racial justice has been spent in ways that benefit the leaders of Black Lives Matter personally.
