Following that, the conversation veers off into a grab bag of tech news for the week:
- Dan's is still recovering from a rootkit that infected his business computer. We seem to recall that he was always backlogged before this happened, but we'll let it slide.
- Henry is lamenting the lack of Google Fiber coming to Minnesota. Since Google tends to piggyback on the fastest Internet pipes, it looks like the state will forever be a third-world country in terms of bandwidth.
- Rich is excited about the Outernet project, which hopes to launch a series of satellites that will provide free Internet connectivity worldwide to anyone who wants it.
