With guest futurist Greg Panos in the studio today, anthing can and will happen.  Top of the news is the story of being able to film cops in action in public places, a contentious issue that brings forth the First Amendment.  Meanwhile, our Intel agencies are doing their bit to clean up Hurricane Irene, and a new more green method of funerals is being tried in Florida. 

Greg delves deeply into the idea of your own evolving personal presence in cyberspace, your “personal personnaform.” To both illustrate and entertain,  Dr. Future experiments with a few synthetic voices doing the news.

It’s also the week of Burning Man, and we have  a live report from 13-year old Ciaran Farley, his first burn, in the midst of Black Rock City in Nevada. We also hear from John Graham, who is making sure we have a live feed 24/7 from the playa.  That and a diamond planet, a UCSC Galaxy Simulator, the biggest data drive ever, and human powered tech, all on the show’s link’s page..

It’s funny how the idea of ‘prediction’ has been so prevalent today.   First, was a demo of an alien oracle, recently created by this week’s guest, Santa Cruz’s own iPhone/iPad app developer Mark Buchanon.  Then there were the stories, today’s stories, beginning with the use of what’s known as ‘predictive policing’ by the Santa Cruz Police Dept. And there is the National Institutes of Health’s use of new computational software that allows the predicting of new uses for old drugs. And let us not forget Stanford researcher’s new method for predicting dangerous solar flares!  All covered in our news segment..

And for the second segment of our show, programmer Mark Buchanon educates us about the entreprenurial opportunies in developing iPhone/iPad apps, a billion dollar industry that did not exist a scant 3 years ago!  Oh yes, that er, “Alien Oracle’ app is pretty amazing, based on a visual trinary code, but not quite yet ready for primetime.. soon..
