Episode 17 goes back to the basics for TCS. Over 25 minutes of news on this episode, yes that is a helluvalotta news. It has been such a long time that I needed to clear the backlog – I promise it will be shorter next time (it is hefty… and good). Bans on Facebook and the issue of Digital Rights Management and how it shortchanges consumers is also discussed.
And, please join The Client Side Society on Facebook that I have setup, the group dedicated to the blog and podcast.
