RCR Episode 158: The Retropocalypse

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Earl Evans, Ken Gagne, Jack Nutting, and Steven Weyhrich

Host’s Topic: The Retropocalypse

What might drive computing to go back “off-line”—massive infrastructure or privacy/secturity disaster? What kind of advantages are there to the limited/isolated machines of the olden-days? Is there a difference between obsolete and just retro? Might data/privacy disasters (even if not structural) lead to new uses of older tech?
