Everybody Online Is Naked

Today, we tackled some of the most controversial issues in online privacy and security in a humorous, timely and deeply philosophical conversation.  I was going to entitle the episode  ‘Transparency: Take it or Leave It’ but opted for this one instead. This episode started out with Rob telling Tony about how the Texas heat melted his Toyota Prius.  After that Tony gives us the skinny on the latest version of WordPress. Then Sam, Tony & Rob segue into a debate on social media transparency.  We cover all the hot situtations and how transparency is affecting them.  From the American justice system and the Casey Anthony trial to reality television and cyber-bullying. What would life be like if the whole world was transparent? Go ahead.  Press play.  I know you want to.
