Episode № 67 Simon St. Laurent - Building the Greatest Everlasting Sandcastle
February 16th, 2016 · 62 minutes
Simon St. Laurent is back to talk about #Snowpocalypse, camera drones in NYC, the legacy of our work, and owning your own stuff —except for those conversations we have on Facebook. We take a look at what we saw this past month in the web space (and more) and what we think is happening on the horizon as we slip further into 2016.
