Knotty Geeks Episode 14 - Starcraft beats University

Posted by: Jeremy Reimer on Mon Apr 4 15:57:13 2011.

In this exciting episode, we brave the cold outdoors again to bring you the exciting battle of Big Truck vs. Even Bigger Truck, and the heart-stopping drama of tiny little loud birds!

Oh, and we also touch on how our entire society is changing right before our eyes, from the collapse of the venerable British University System to the fall of traditional publishers. It’s all part of the theme of Acceleration, marked out by Data Points!

All this, plus the rise of Starcraft!
