How does your geography affect your outlook?  While the term Washington insider is not usually a compliment, Tom is joined by a capital tech insider with unique vantage point. Rob Pegoraro is right in the middle of the D.C. tech scene and will stop by to talk tech policy and more.  Find out what Rob and Tom will be covering about seeing tech from a D.C perspective on the SHOW PAGE.

We’ll also let you in on how you can purchase NASA patents for automated software code generation, how gummi bears can outsmart finger print scanners, how $105 can save you from being sued by Copyright-Trolls and a great advance in portable medical technology.

Ok. No 50 Ft mainframes, but the first part sounds just as scary.

This week, we have Dick Davies stopping by to discuss “Users Become the Programmers” [SHOW PAGE].  Arguably, one of the more technical tasks of programming we faced five years ago is now being taught on a regular basis to everyone.  And, as we are approaching more and more creative, yet simple technologies, the need for professionals is slowly diminishing.  This is where Dick Davies steps in.  He will be addressing what is causing the push of this trend, what will happen to IT professionals, and how to cope with the problem.  Dick is the President of Sales Lab Incorporated, and is also partner in a Web 2.0 start up known as Partnerpedia; therefore, he is extremely well versed in the topic, and it is not a show you want to miss!

The show will air this Sunday, August 1, 2010 @ 6 pm EDT | 3 pm MST on KFNX 1100 in the greater Phoenix area.  If you are around your computer, but not the radio, you can still listen by going to http://www.1100kfnx.com and clicking the ‘LISTEN LIVE’ button at the according time.

Play it again, Sam.
