I wasn’t assigned a post this week, but just wanted to briefly mention that the third season of the hit HBO Silicon Valley aired last night Sunday. It’s a great and hilarious show that overlaps nicely with a lot of the topics discussed in class.
It’s been noted that the technology the show lampoons is probably in fact already being developed right now and can’t keep up with reality.
The main character Richard Hendricks finds himself going from being CEO of his own compression company to potentially working on an app to create 3D holographic facial for live-video chats. Snapchat anyone?
