Episode Info:

Why Go In?:  On today’s episode of Track Changes, Rich and Paul sit down with Andrew Smith, a journalist and writer who recently learned to code. We talk about following curiosity, and learning to program in a world where almost everything we interact with is mediated by code. We discuss Andrew’s pivot from writing about music and culture, to technology and high-finance, and dissect what that says about our lives today. We also get some insight into Andrew’s most recent research into the kids who ran the internet through 1995 - 2000 (Spoiler: the reasons behind the dot-com crash are a sham!).   LINKS Andrew Smith https://andrewsmithauthor.com/ Andrew on Twitter https://twitter.com/wiresmith Totally Wired: The Rise and Fall of Josh Harris and The Great Dotcom Swindle https://www.amazon.com/Totally-Wired-Harris-Dotcom-Swindle/dp/080212934X Douglas Rushkoff https://rushkoff.com/ Real Player https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RealPlayer Quincy Larson https://twitter.com/ossia Free Code Camp https://www.freecodecamp.org/
