hwms.coverart

So here’s the problem. It’s Thoughts not Things. Ideas not Machines. The High Tech world is involved with making ideas real. So what rights do you have to ideas? Especially when your new autonomous drone latte delivery system has a certain resemblance to a hot chocolate radio commercial from the 1960s. Or to the legend of Paul Bunyan draining Oregon’s Crate Lake in order to make a bowl of Pea Soup? After demonstrating his system at the Consumer Electronics Show, Rohit races these issues when he receives a Cease and Desist Letter.

A good friend always says that solo acts don’t work, that a board is always smarter than a a CEO. In podcasts, the rule seems to be that the collective adds interests. Over the past year, we have created a staff to illustrate the main points of the podcast and identify some of the absurdities of our subject. This podcast is a brief introduction to that staff.
