Watson for the Masses (with Michael Keeling)

Is Automation Ultimately Our Friend or Foe? (Book Discussion)

As computing professionals, we spend much of our time automating. Automating tasks that a human would have done manually in the past. What's the net impact of all this automation? Has it ultimately made life for the masses sweeter, softer, simpler, and safer? In his latest book, The Glass Cage, Nicolas Carr analyzes this question deeply. He gives great examples, for instance, pointing out that now that our creations are becoming autonomous, our creations encode moral decisions that would have, in the past, been made directly by a human. In this episode, Bett and Russ discuss the more interesting points from this book: The Glass Cage, highlighting how it relates to our jobs as computing professionals.

In this episode, Uma describes hisUnder-Nmethodology.

It also elicits capabilities that may not yet be present but that are possible, while outlining four atomic change capabilities that, when implemented, will enable IT applications to deliver changes in an under-Nfashion by mixing and matching.

Innovators (Book Review)

Walter Isaacson follows his biography of Steve Jobs with another great book. This one does not focus on any particular individual, but rather starts with Ada Lovelace and flows through time, up to the present, spotlighting each of the innovators that played a part in laying the foundation for, and ultimately creating, the digital revolution. In this episode, we briefly review this new book. Listen to hear how many thumbs up this book received from Bett and Russ.

Mud Wrestling with Greg Young

Listen to this episode to hear how wallowing around in many small balls of mud can help avoid theclassic big ball of mud--and ultimately enable you too to practice "the art of destroying software". Turns out the key to writing great software starts with planning upfront to destroy it. In this episode, Greg shares many insights, with the main insight being that we have all been overlooking one key "-ility". That is, is delete-ability of code. And while some of you might argue the ideas are not new, Greg's way of presenting them definitely is.
