Its Canon Podcast 052 – Tech & Society

Its Sunday, you know what that means!

We are back with the news roundup.  It’s a pretty heavy week on the tech side of life this time round.  Boris and Phil dive headfirst into the Cryptocurrency / blockchain end of things to explore the environmental responsibilities of the whole industry and its goals.  We examine the pivot the tech industry had to do in order to support working from home and the mental and emotional stress it puts on everyone as well as the repercussions on industry and development.  We chat about twitch and other platforms regarding their policies with content creators and what it really says about everyone involved.  In big news it seems more platforms have been compromised with your personal data being the commodity surrendered.  Finally we have some fun chatting about the box office numbers involving lightning lizards and some industry moves by Netflix to battle the big mouse house.
