Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 149 – WikiPodcastia

In Episode 149 of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast: Has the internet made us smarter? With so much information literally at our fingertips, have we really become any smarter than we were when we relied on libraries and books for our information? Information is easier to find than it has ever been. Is that information correct, though? How do we check it? Do we even care?

Eloy Escagedo and Mark Lindsay explore the topic with lots of references to Wikipedia, books, magazines, and even a video taken in France in 1899. In that video, modern Artificial Intelligence technology was used to colorize it, then bring it up to 60 fps. The video itself is stunning, but does it give us a look into the daily lives of people of the time, or does it give us a look at how they hoped viewers would see them?

Lots of fun conversations in this episode, so grab your favorite beverage, sit back, relax, and enjoy!
