Ep. 62 - Kait boyle, FKT on the kokopelli
On the morning of Christmas Eve 2018 Kait Boyle was at the height of her ultra endurance racing career, having won the 24 hour World Championship in 2018 and set a new record on the AZT 300. Her life would take an unexpected turn later that day when she was involved in a horrific vehicular accident that left her with a long list of injuries and a long path to recovery. Like many of you, I watch her social media feed for months as she dedicated herself to rehabilitation and ultimately back to fitness. * * * Almost a 2 years, and a pandemic later, she finally found herself at the top podium again. This time in the form of an FKT on the Kokopelli Trail. On Nov. 6th, 2020 Lael Wilcox, Kurt Refsnider, and Kait all met in Moab at the start line of the Kokopelli, each of them on ITT's with FKT's on the mind. Kait was able to finish with a time of 13 hrs, 7 mins, which was good enough to beat the long standing time set by Rebecca Rush by 25 minutes. In doing so, she answered 2 years of questions and uncertainty. She was equally rewarded for her hard work, perseverance, and PATIENCE. As a personal fan, I remember cringing seeing the gruesome pics from her crash and injuries. It was hard to watch, I can't imagine how hard it was to live. * * Pictures courtesy of Rugile Kaladyte In addition to her accomplishments on the bike she is also the Co-Founder of Bikepacking Roots, which supports and advances bikepacking, the growth of a diverse bikepacking community, and access to and the conservation of the landscapes and public lands through which we ride. Her contributions on and off the bike are both impressive and valuable to this community that we all love. It was great to share in this milestone with her and hear about her journey over the past couple of years. Kait, congrats on the FKT, and we look forward to rooting for you in future races. You can learn more about Kait on her website or follow her on social media.

Privacy or Profit - Why Not Both?
Every day, our data hits the market when we sign online. It’s for sale, and we’re left to wonder if tech companies will ever choose to protect our privacy rather than reap large profits with our information. But, is the choice — profit or privacy — a false dilemma? Meet the people who have built profitable tech businesses while also respecting your privacy. Fact check if Facebook and Google have really found religion in privacy. And, imagine a world where you could actually get paid to share your data. In this episode, Oli Frost recalls what happened when he auctioned his personal data on eBay. Jeremy Tillman from Ghostery reveals the scope of how much ad-tracking is really taking place online. Patrick Jackson at Disconnect.me breaks down Big Tech’s privacy pivot. DuckDuckGo’s Gabriel Weinberg explains why his private search engine has been profitable. And Dana Budzyn walks us through how her company, UBDI, hopes to give consumers the ability to sell their data for cash. IRL is an original podcast from Firefox. For more on the series, go to irlpodcast.org. Read about Patrick Jackson and Geoffrey Fowler's privacy experiment. Learn more about DuckDuckGo, an alternative to Google search, at duckduckgo.com. And, we're pleased to add a little more about Firefox's business here as well — one that puts user privacy first and is also profitable. Mozilla was founded as a community open source project in 1998, and currently consists of two organizations: the 501(c)3 Mozilla Foundation, which backs emerging leaders and mobilizes citizens to create a global movement for the health of the internet; and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Mozilla Corporation, which creates Firefox products, advances public policy in support of internet user rights and explores new technologies that give people more control and privacy in their lives online. Firefox products have never — and never will never — buy or sell user data. Because of its unique structure, Mozilla stands apart from its peers in the technology field as one of the most impactful and successful social enterprises in the world.

Tesla under fire from Feds after failing to recall almost 160,000 cars with defective screens
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has taken the view that those absurdly gigantic and distracting central touchscreens on almost 160,000 Teslas are defective - mainly because they randomly just go blank after about five years of ordinary driving.   Save thousands on any new car (Australia-only): https://autoexpert.com.au/contact AutoExpert discount roadside assistance package: https://247roadservices.com.au/autoexpert/ Did you like this report?

The defect this time causes the reversing camera not to work and the windscreen defrosters likewise to fail.  Chimes and other alerts that form part of Tesla’s ‘not really an autopilot’ system also fail to work when this happens.   It’s all somewhat inconvenient if that happens when you’re asleep on the Interstate at 75mph because you put your faith in Electric Elon, and (for whatever reason) you actually thought the term ‘AutoPilot’ was loosely related to what those two words actually mean.  The Feds have taken the inconvenient (for Tesla) view that this is a safety issue - because they say - using what we in the real world might call ‘facts’ and ‘reasoning’ - that the failure of the screen increases the risk of death and/or carnage - and therefore it is deserving of a recall.  The Feds say the defect occurs because the processors driving the fat screens are designed for early obsolescence. Apparently they have a finite number of program-and-erase cycles, after which they simply decline to function any more - a process which takes about five years of ordinary driving. The Feds say this is insufficient for safety-critical features.
