Hello listeners and fans. I apologize for the late release. grumpyhawk and Benjamin have been adjusting to their recent life changes, and it's delayed the release of this episode. But onto the goodness. This week we're discussing how the oversight committee for the NSA has been deemed extraneous, yet the spying program itself isn't, Twitter rolling out Neilsen ratings for tweets, an MIT inventor and his swarmbots, and designer babies (yes like Gattaca). All on today's episode "The Late One"
- Obama administration decides NSA spying is ‘essential,’ but oversight of NSA is not
- MIT inventor unleashes hundreds of self-assembling cube swarmbots
- Twitter rolls out Nielsen rating to track TV tweets
- 23andMe receives patent to create designer babies, but denies plans to do so
