I did an interview for my Forbes column with author and TED speaker, Dan Ariely, about how behavioral economics can influence technology, data, artificial intelligence and more: http://www.forbes.com/sites/jonobacon/2016/04/21/dan-ariely-on-building-more-human-technology-data-artificial-intelligence-and-more/
Dan Ariely, professor of psychology and behavioral economics and author of New York Times best-sellers Predictably Irrational and The Update Of Irrationality, talks about what the technology world can learn from the psychology world and how we help the machines to understand us better.

Wonder if you will get feedback on your episode where you guys brainstormed ways to improve Mozilla?

See my new column about using behavioral economics to build internal/external communities: https://opensource.com/life/16/4/build-awesome-communities
This month Jono Bacon looks at the SCARF model, which is a good starting point for building productive, fair, encouraging communities.

+Jono Bacon, +Jeremy Garcia, +Bryan Lunduke, and +Stuart Langridge bring you Bad Voltage episode 65, in which we have now basically become a show about guitars, there is a great deal of argument and fighting about whether companies screw us because they're incompetent or because they're evil, and also:

- 00:02:20 +Nest decide to remotely shut down purchasers' Revolv home hubs with minimal notice. The internet gets very cross. Nest begrudingly decide to give refunds. Is this a harbinger of bad things to come, where devices we buy require an online service for no reason and stop working because the company get bored? Or is this just the price we pay for having new stuff which can be controlled from anywhere and update on the fly? Where's the consortium awarding "this doesn't shut down if the company does" brand marks?

- 00:31:55 Jono reviews the MOD Duo stompbox, a multi-effect guitar pedal funded on Kickstarter and based on Linux and open source software

- 00:45:19 To answer our questions about the MOD Duo, we talk to company founder Gianfranco Ceccolini about the software and hardware inside the box and their views on openness

- 01:02:15 How do we attract the next generation of open source enthusiasts? Do we need to, or are we beyond that now? What's stopping this happening?

Sometimes you just need to take a difficult position on an issue.
 
We take strong, controversial stances in the latest episode of Bad Voltage.
