01:30:35 – A late night stroll into last year. Why you can’t schedule creativity, The Who, The Avalanches, cynics on Y2K, an abandoned shop, generic names, Pack n Send nostalgia, startups versus big corporates, being thankful, getting rid of crap, water white noise, parcel lockers, c-c-c-cold, expensive caffeine trips, and exploding coffee machines. Recorded 30th June 2016.

53:33 – Harrison Ford has done a lot of movies (GET ME OFF THIS PLANE). Also plummeting down a lift shaft, making the mistake of asking a question online, lack of empathy over anonymity, nostalgia for the early days of Twitter, Jimbo listener feedback, American education nomenclature, and drops of Jupiter’s clouds. Music by the fabulously talented Who-ha once more.

33:13 – The second in a short show series documenting my last week as a 20-something! Chatting about warping lift shafts, colourful language for falling, an international Onsug, blocking websites, scripting away podcast chores, Akiyama Mio’s infamous K-On! scene, mail servers, Netflix, dead file sharing service nostalgia (aka Napster), and paying someone to do it for you!

40:03 – The only other Rubénerd material posted on this weird day, spam as art for computers, having your own email address, towers of AOL trial CDs, fragility of memory, 1990s IT magazine nostalgia, work fatigue, why ISO dates are so damn good, time speeding up as we age, school holidays, introversion, events that only happen every four years, knowing someone born on the 29th of February, the Lunar New Year, and a proposal for a global public holiday.

52:35 – Anyone will tell you it’s a prison island, hidden in the summer for a million years. Happy Australia Day with this discussion of what should be the anthem, Captain Cook, our native peoples, where we all live, cliché Australian tourism advertising, Outback Steakhouse, and humbling flights over the desert. Topped off with a Midnight Citizen-inspired discussion on rapidly fading music and book retail (Coconuts, Borders, Angus & Robertson, Tower Records, HMV in Singapore, the magical late 1990s), and the darn space all those books and DVDs take up. Released late because work has been tough, hope it was worth it!

59:48 – Drizzly data centre trips, birds, cryptographic randomness (lava lamps, headphone cables as sources of entropy), uber-ing a crowdsourced paradigm of synergising disruption, listener feedback (Jimbo, Bi-Coastal Becky), hoarses [sic], Jimbo interviewing me on his podcast, Kevin Tan, functionally-challenged data centre bathrooms, trudging through the rain, high school athletics I didn’t suck at (gymnastics, badminton), winning a primary school writing contest, and finding the chipset from the first computer I built in 1998. Now with all-new abrupt endings!
