Speaking in Tech: Apple crumbles to Taylor Swift. Let the disruption begin
And while we’re at it, why do music labels still even exist?
Hosted by Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela. This week, the crew talk about antagonising construction workers in Seattle (they don’t like the Village People’s ‘YMCA’, apparently) the Open Container Project (container burnout, and who’s going to acquire whom, and when), going after journalist and Tor developer Jacob Appelbaum (why didn't he encrypt his emails, or just use iMessage), and Taylor Swift.
Our special guest this week is Jim McNiel, former VC and CMO of NetScout.
