Internet Privacy:
The disclaimer at the bottom of your emails means nothing so why waste time and space with it? More general privacy talk abut Facebook, Google profile, Public parts and geo-location issues with 4 square.

and then…
Andrew is wearing a B1 patch and Bob is not. We talk about the previous shows B1 patch experiment. You may want to try it yourself and get back to us with your feedback.

Pubquest is mentioned since it is about beer and is dovetailed into the conversation about police using social media in their investigations. If you travel in the USA and Canada and like beer then check out this amazing resource.

Question shout out answer is: George Orwell wrote the book 1984 (man we wound a bit lame in this part of the show). The book was written by in 1948 and he inverted the last 2 numbers in getting the date for the book.

We chat about how the new generation shares information without thinking about it. What do you th?nk. Are we being too generous with where we are and what we are doing or does the coolness factor override our common sense?

The Bunker gets into Candles, nice one Arik. Yep we turn off the lights to get rid of the hummmm from the overhead lights and end up in the dark.

Tangent education piece on Japanese and Chinese writing the pictogram for counting to five. We use vertical lines and then slash through the 4 verticals to represent 5 units. Here is a graphic showing all 5 stages of the Asian approach to this age old problem.

The UK Royal Family gets onto Facebook. They have over 299,000 “likes” to date. Also found out there is no Poke option.
