This week I discuss my concerns about the city’s future and if Philly has a legitimate chance to woo a company that is literally changing how society functions.

SourceCast: Episode 86: Magically Deleted Emails

Last week there was an interview with Arianna Huffington circulating through social media detailing how the HuffPo founder deals with email when she is away on vacation. Spoiler: They all get deleted.

Having recently come back from vacation, I thought this was a good podcast topic to cover and I opened it up to my wife and friends to share their thoughts on the practice.

SourceCast: Episode 85: Is Google Evil?

While Google has been defending itself against the EU on monopoly claims, a think tank funded by Eric Schmidt and Google published an article supporting the EU decision.  The author of that post was terminated from the think tank organization.

Is that the action of an organization that supports free thought?  Or is Google just protecting their assets?

SourceCast: Episode 83: Trump vs. Amazon

President Trump mentioned several times that he believes Amazon is getting too big and is demonstrating a monopoly posture.  Are Amazon, Google, and Facebook getting too big and destroying competitive environments?  I try to answer that exact question this week.
