Working on Something Big (Ep. 215 - Sci-Fi and Ham Radio)

There’s a good chance that the Internet as we know it wouldn't be a thing without this week's guest. Alan Emtage grew up in Barbados, where his connection to the outside world came through amateur radio projects that allowed him to talk with people around the world. He went on to pioneer the way we find information on the Internet at a time when there was no way to search, inventing the technology that eventually became familiar tools like Google. Alan made it possible for queer culture to flourish online, and for people who grew up isolated to find their community.

And don’t forget to join us for the next livestream! It’s on Saturday, February 9, at 2pm pacific.
