  • Episode 205 - Overworking, AI, AR, and More!
    Oct 4 2023

    We're Baaaaaack!

    The Killing IT team returns . . . with a fun and educational Q4 show. 

    Topic 1: Overworking 

    Have you heard the term Over Employment or Overworking? These are folks who manage to hold down two or three full time jobs using apps and BS. Are these just eager, hardworking "gig" folks, or are they thieves who are simply more interested in making money than earning an honest living?

    A few links:

    They even have their own web site.

    Topic 2: Catch up on Artificial Intelligence

    Wow! What a year.

    Are we in the middle of a singularity? ow much is this like the early Internet (late 1990’s)? It seems like 2023 will be remembered as the year of AI. 

    We look at the good and the great - and what's next.

    What do you think?

    Topic 3: Metaverse – Dave offers a theory

    What will augmented reality bring? It looks like the future is becoming a little more visible. New products, from Apple's Vision Pro to Meta’s Ray-Ban glasses, are bringing new opportunities and will only get better with a little AI!

    We discuss.

    Please like and share - and send us your feedback!

    May 26 2023

    Topic 1: How much will AI change our business in the next twelve months?

    Topic 2: Oh Dear God - Minority Report crack for Ryan:

    Movie clip reconstructed by an AI reading mice's brains as they watch

    Researchers have put together a 30-second movie clip based on a group of mice's brain activity data that was recorded while they watched the footage 



    Topic 3: How dead is the metaverse?

  • Epsiode 203: AI is Moving Fast, Killing IT Revisits the Cabana, & This Isn't Goodbye but See You Later
    Feb 21 2023

    Topic 1: The Arms Race is Here...AI is Definitely Moving Fast, but Will It Break Things?

    ChatGPT is now integrated in Bing as “Prometheus.” That sounds ominous. But Bard is also coming. And now Ernie. And Claude. Soon there will be AI bots generating “conversations” and disrupting the search industry on all sides of the globe. Is that a good thing?

    Sample alternative tools - 

    ...And also, apparently writing software is about to become a less-lucrative career path.


    Topic 2: Revisiting the Cabana...

    Four years ago, we set out to change the way our industry discussed IT. 

    We covered the scary, the quirky, and the fun of IT--all in hopes we could help others (and ourselves) understand this wild world just a little more.  

    Thank you for helping us do that.

    This is not goodbye. We WILL see you later.

    Until then, we thank you for tuning in to the Killing IT Podcast.
