Podcast with Dan Bricklin and John Sviokla

Dan Bricklin posted the podcast of the discussion between himself, John Sviokla, and me.  It was fun to do and I hope it'll be fun to listen to.  Dan and John got me to tell some stories I haven't told before about how big companies get convinced to do new things (or don't!).

We talked about what might break the stultifying grip network operators have on mobile phone innovation - at least in the US.  Dan's invention of VisiCalc broke the grip that mainframe programmers like me had on the development of new applications a generation and a half ago.

Dan's post about the podcast is here.

The podcast itself is here.
