Future Chat: Tech 15 – Parenting (Father’s Day Special)

In this special Father’s Day episode of Future Tech Chat, we will be talking about the technology that goes in to all aspects of modern parenting. From watching TV with toddlers, to giving teens tablets, we will discuss all varieties of electronics that can be involved in the child rearing process.

This is a topic that should be relevant to most people in their 20s, as technology has become an integral part of all of our lives. I, for one, am very interested to find out what raising a child will be like given the huge increase in technology that is available while raising a child, and how parents are now expected to be tracking their child and knowing their whereabouts 24/7, when my childhood was such a free experience and all the generations up to mine were all fine with the more “laissez-faire” parenting.

Should be a good one!

I hope you’ll tune in live at 12:30 PM EDT on Saturday, June 14th for the episode, and you’ll be able to watch it in full above live or after it’s aired.

You can direct any questions you might have to the Q&A on the event page (https://plus.google.com/events/csgv3crtinj971cahd48rsuknn4). We look forward to seeing you here live!

Future Chat: Science 1 – Electric Cars

Starts live at 12:30 PM EDT on Saturday June 7th, 2014!

Welcome everyone to Future Sci Chat. This weekend we will be having the first episode of this new series, covering electric cars. We will talk about reservations people have about going electric, difficulties companies have faced for a century trying to sell this idea, and the current limitations of the technology. All in all, it should be a very fun episode!

Some of you might have seen or heard about Future Tech Chat, but have maybe found it to be a little inaccessible. I really hope you’ll enjoy some of the science topics we plan to discuss on this new show (alternative energy, GMOs, robotics, etc.), we have a lot of great stuff planned to discuss in the coming months.

This show will have the same format as Future Tech Chat, that being a 45-60 minute live show taped (usually) on Saturdays, but that can be watched at any time thereafter. We always love when we get questions from interested parties, and there is a Q&A section on Google+ where the chats are hosted, as well as in the comment section on YouTube.
