Sick with Nazis

Jared was sick last week and so he did what comes naturally: binge watch Nazis. Yes, and not just Nazis but Japanese imperialists as well as the rebels who fight them to bring freedom to America in The Man in the High Castle—a “what if” scenario presented by Amazon Prime’s hit show. And if that weren’t crazy enough, while Jared was sick he attempted to install macOS Mojave on his iMac with less than stellar results (but there is a happy ending to the story). Plus Tim Cook’s tough talk on privacy rights, Helm fighting Google, and more. Never a dull moment here on The Jared White Show!

Mastodon’s Moment

Never fear, Professor Jared is here! You will learn all about Mastodon, the hot new social networking platform that is exploding in popularity and giving Twitter a run for its money. What makes Mastodon so exciting is it’s not a single commercial service run by a corporation—it’s simply open source software using open protocols that anyone can install on their own server. Just like email isn’t owned by any one company (you can email me and I can email you and we’re not all forced to use Gmail for example), federated social networks allow online messaging and following/follower relationships to work much like Twitter but using the beauty and power of the open web.

It’s currently in beta testing, and you can sign up now to try it out for free! Also: how to reach 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, the cosmic balance between work and rest, the Summer of Marvel, and so much more!

Make It So, Number One

In this episode, Jared talks about his first experience using Apple laptops in the early days of Mac OS X, and what Apple needs to do now to simplify its consumer laptop product line and offer a “Mac for the masses” just like the original iBook. Also, Star Trek’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard will return, Patreon buys a Memberful, and the origin of the hashtag. All this and more on The Jared White Show.

Same Ol’ Ethan

Nothing is too impossible here on The Jared White Show as we tirelessly embark on the mission of recording new episodes every week! That’s right—on today’s show, Jared reviews the blockbuster hit Mission: Impossible - Fallout and comments on the epic score by Lorne Balfe. Plus a close look at “van life” YouTubers, e-scooters on the streets of Portland, Millenials’ obsession with plants (who knew?), and more!

A Rather Odd Character Named Anonymous

In this episode, Jared explains why the show almost never happened in the first place and why excuses are the enemy of action. Plus a hands-on overview of the new MacBook Pros from Apple with improved butterfly mechanism keyboards, how news curation on major media platforms is threatening the open web, the brutalism movement in design, and more!

The Year Was 1994

The year was 1994. Dial-up modems ruled. Netscape Navigator had not even been released yet. The only browser anyone had heard of was called Mosaic. Trumpet Winsock was how people got online with Windows 3.1. 1994: the year Jared White first logged on to the internet.

Nostalgia Café

Somehow on today’s show we end up waxing nostalgic about the Sci-Fi of youth: namely, Babylon 5 and Star Trek: The Next Generation. But don’t worry, there’s also plenty to look forward to, such as throwing off the shackles of our corporate web overlords and embracing the scrappy technology of the IndieWeb. (Recent rebel activity was spotted on the surface of the planet Earth, in the city known as Portland in the state of Oregon.)
