This week: Henry Lowengard, aka Webhamster Henry, on tech at WFMU and beyond.

Pointers to Webhamster Henry's work:

• Henry's Droneo app for iOS

• Henry's Yes Session iOS app

• The AUMI iOS app (as Henry says, this is for disabled people, "temporarily abled" people, as well as birds, cats, goldfish, turtles, clouds, fire) - see also aumiapp.com - AUMI stands for Adaptive Use Musical Instruments, associated with the Deep Listening Institute, which says the "Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI) software interface enables people who have very limited controlled (voluntary) movement to independently engage in music making. The Adaptive Use Musical Instruments software interface enables the user to play sounds and musical phrases through movement and gestures." Here's a video demo of AUMI.

• Henry's Only A iOS app and the Only A repository Henry mentions in the interview. (And all of Henry's iOS apps.)

• Here's a video profile of Henry Lowengard by MX Creatives. "He uses sound to create digital apps which allow persons with diverse physical abilities to make music."

Henry's drones on Soundcloud (scroll down to see "Swoopster at Kingston, NY" - made by the Droneo app)

• Pauline Oliveros, composer - here's her NYT obit: Composer Who Championed ‘Deep Listening’

• A selection of Henry's mp3s

• Henry's homepage and his more general website.

• And about our outtro tonight, Not Programmed for Love - Henry used to be guest host on the "Nitecaps" show (1AM-3AM) and used this as his theme song.

In other tech news:

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak deleted his Facebook account. You should, too: deletefacebook.com

Why Zuckerberg’s 14-Year Apology Tour Hasn’t Fixed Facebook: "Facebook’s 2 billion users are not Facebook’s 'community.' They are its user base, and they have been repeatedly carried along by the decisions of the one person who controls the platform."

“We Had To Stop Facebook”: When Anti-Muslim Violence Goes Viral. "Extremists in Sri Lanka used Facebook to organize deadly violence against Muslims. Facebook is accused of not doing enough to prevent it," reports BuzzFeed - by Megha Rajagopalan.

Richard Stallman, president of the Free Software Foundation: "The surveillance imposed on us today far exceeds that of the Soviet Union. For freedom and democracy’s sake, we need to eliminate most of it."

Facebook sent a doctor on a secret mission to ask hospitals to share patient data: "Facebook was in talks with top hospitals and other medical groups as recently as last month about a proposal to share data about the social networks of their most vulnerable patients. The idea was to build profiles of people that included their medical conditions, information that health systems have, as well as social and economic factors gleaned from Facebook."

YouTube Is Improperly Collecting Children’s Data, Consumer Groups Say: remember that Google, too, not just Facebook, is conducting surveillance of you (and your kids).

How to scam a Gmail user: "The dots [in the email address] do matter," writes James H. Fisher.

• Harvard postdoc Moira Weigel posts: "*walking by my old dorm room in Kirkland House* hey remember that time some boys hacked our college directory, put our faces up on a website so other boys could rate if we were pretty, and then became the richest people in the world?"

• ...Weigel then adds: "a global empire built on the faces of awkward teen girls what could possibly go wrong"

Geoffrey Fowler: "It’s really amazing that Facebook continues to downplay this even during the apology tour." He's referring to Drew Harwell's comment: "When Zuckerberg says third-party companies were 'able to access some information' about users' friends (see WaPo piece), this is what he actually means: Location, romantic partner, work history, interests, photos, notes, videos (and much more!)"

• MIT researchers have found that Lies spread faster than the truth.

• Oh, and Zuck ate some toast.

When the playlist shows the most recent track at the top and quits its infernal reloading, a new quantum level of consciousness will have been reached.

as a 30+ year listener i'll tell you: the playlist/comments add a beautiful dimension to the station. honestly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/9/18 6:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If the comments boards were to go away, I really don't know what I'd do. I'd feel so adrift.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 6:16pm cosmic matrix:

the comments board makes this thing higher-dimensional.

The Archive is great. Many other radio stations have no archives, or do, but remove them after a time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/9/18 6:17pm Webhamster Henry:

I go to other stations and look for the non existent chat boards. I think chat boards are part of the Audience Engine, which is WFMU tech for other organizations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/9/18 6:18pm Michael 98145:

those archives are our money well-spent
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 6:18pm Listener Robert:

I programmed a DOS script that chained to a WordPerfect script to download all my new content from the echos I was interested in, plus my Echomail, so I could read offline to save time dialed-in, which counted against my quota at the BBS, and also tied up my phone line -- with call waiting disabled so as not to knock off my connection. IIRC I even programmed in the DOS script a command to the modem dialer to send the code to turn off call waiting, then turn it on again at the end of the session.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 6:18pm Linda Lee:

other stations now seem dead-ish without chat, listener interaction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/9/18 6:19pm Michael 98145:

there are people around who have forgotten DOS and dialers. or never knew them.

iPhones are great. Social media is not all bad. And Facebook could be great if the focus was not so focused on harvesting data to profit a few.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 6:32pm listener james from westwood:

I'm mildly surprised Woz even had a FB account. I figured he was still jamming 80s on his telecom solutions, possibly on a heavily modded Apple I.

During the largest labor protests in the history of the United States, Twitter proved really useful to follow court proceedings.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 6:34pm Anthony:

Be careful...nobody complained when Facebook shared the personal information of every American on the platform in 2012 to certain political candidates for no charge. It only became a problem in 2016 when this was information was monetized and certain people did not like the results of this information sale.

The current market cap for Facebook as of April 06, 2018 is $456.67B.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 6:43pm JakeGould:

Mark, I think honestly saying these apps should be shut down is really paranoid. Shut down all existing social media apps. New ones will come up. The internet and computing is what it is. It can be used for bad or good.

I have no issues with social media to that level. I block what I want to block, expose what I want to expose and honestly I am not that torn up.

What I am more upset about is the modern media landscape where standalone websites and blogs have no viability. That is the reason social media is so central to the Internet nowadays; it all works only for the big players. 10 and even 20 years ago smaller players could have a humble existence.

I grew up using chat systems in the 70's and 80's so I was eager to bring some here. I credit Mike Lupica for the nudge, who said one day, we should allow comments below the playlist after it's over. I said, we should allow live chat while it's happening! And then I got to work... I also credit Tumblr for making me realize scroll control in the browser was viable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:10pm Linda Lee:

enabled comments has been absolutely great for creating this community ~ ultimately strengthening station support! bravo!
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 7:14pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I created live playlist commenting in 2006, and implemented the Ajax live scrolling in early 2010. My notes say that took two sleepless weeks from conception to debugged implementation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:17pm Linda Lee:

best sleepless nights you ever spent, right?. ;-)
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 7:18pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Oh but of course
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:18pm Linda Lee:

you're the Man. that's all. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:19pm Linda Lee:

Mr Hurst has gone as far to say that what we have here, what' you've created, is what social media *should* be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:19pm Linda Lee:

beautifully low signal-to-noise ratio. :-)
Avatar Mon. 4/9/18 7:20pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

No sign-in required! That was important to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:20pm Linda Lee:

yeah that's beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/9/18 7:22pm Linda Lee:

assuming he'll shut down this board sooner or later. i'm headed to work! :-) hope to see you soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/9/18 7:29pm Webhamster Henry:

The boards for shows can be commented on years after the show's termination!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/9/18 7:29pm Webhamster Henry:

The conversation tends to thin out though.
