Now it is time for me to reveal my secret: in my spare time (say what?) I’ve been working on a new podcast for Popular Science magazine. As you know, I am their contributing troubadour, and we all thought it was about time I started actually contributing. Each week I’ll be doing an interview with somebody interesting, usually related in some way to a story in the current issue of the magazine. The first one is with Gordon Bell, a Microsoft researcher who for many years has been working on a project called MyLifeBits in which he digitally captures and archives various aspects of his daily life – like some kind of coo-coo cybernetic memory extension. Give it a listen (and please subscribe so that I look good).
Yes: there is a theme song.
