Palladium Podcast 79: Eron Wolf on the Evolution of Computing

Alex Motoc/National Museum of Computing, Bletchley Park

Eron Wolf joins Wolf Tivy to discuss alternative computing and the trappings of the streamlined user experience.

As computing technology has become more widespread, the possibilities it offers the user have been narrowed. DRM restrictions, software bloat, and “appification” have made tinkering more difficult. Attempts at fixing this, such as the open-source software movement, have not been able to halt the trend. How can it be done differently?
