Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, September 4, 2022, and this is show number 904.
The next Apple announcement event is scheduled for Wednesday 7 September at 10 am Pacific Time. Steve and I will be in the live chat room at https://podfeet.com/chat during the event. We hope you’ll join us! We don’t broadcast any video or audio, we’ll be text chatting along with the rest of you.
If you’ve never been to the chat room before, this link will take you to Discord on the Web where you can sign up for Discord to view and participate.
This week I had the pleasure of being on the Daily Tech News Show on Tuesday where Tom, Sarah, and I talked about the new Twitter Circles feature to allow you to tweet to just your close friends. We also talk about a new social media app in China called Soul that doesn’t allow you to use your real likeness; you have to use an avatar. The California legislature just unanimously passed a regulation with the goal of protecting users under 18 on social media platforms, but there’s a lot of debate about whether it is good law. Listen to all of this at dailytechnewsshow.com/…
Dr. Maryanne Garry – Panel with Tom Merritt on How Memory Makes it Harder to Fight COVID-19 (no blog post)
Professor Maryanne Garry (frequent guest on Chit Chat Across the Pond) is hosting a live panel discussion about how our memories make it harder for traditional contact tracing to succeed where digital contact tracing may do better. She will be joined by Professor of Psychology Dr. Lorraine Hope, digital epidemiologist Dr. Marcel Salathé, and Daily Tech News Show host Tom Merritt.
The panel discussion will be on Thursday 8 September from 3-4 PM Eastern Time (7-9 UTC) at www.psychologicalscience.org/…. Maryanne really hopes you’ll attend AND ask questions in the live chat.
If you have questions prior to the live panel, you can post them to her on Twitter @drlambchop
There’s a podcast I really enjoy, but it starts with a 2-minute ad spot, and then another ad spot in the middle of the show. That might not be too bad, but the show is only 14 minutes long, so the ads are nearly 30% of the show. This has become more and more of the norm. But that’s not true with any of the Podfeet Podcasts because we don’t run ads, we depend on the listeners to support the work, either through Patreon or PayPal. If you like having ad-free content not behind a paywall, please consider going to podfeet.com/patreon or podfeet.com/paypal to support the show.
That’s going to wind this up for this week. Did you know you can email me at [email protected] any time you like? If you have a question or a suggestion just send it on over. You can follow me on Twitter at @podfeet. If you want to join the conversation, you can join our Slack community at podfeet.com/slack where you can talk to me and all of the other lovely NosillaCastaways. Remember, everything good starts with podfeet.com. You can support the show at podfeet.com/patreon or with a one-time donation at podfeet.com/paypal. And if you want to join in the fun of the live show, head on over to podfeet.com/live on Sunday nights at 5pm Pacific Time and join the friendly and enthusiastic NosillaCastaways. Thanks for listening, and stay subscribed.
