Four years ago, on a hot Thursday afternoon in Anaheim, Jessie Char sat down for a Dole Whip in Disneyland while her friends went to the bathroom. When they got back she was gone. No note.

Her first words were “We’re recording next week.”
On this episode, we have interaction design pioneer Alan Cooper on the podcast, and we spend fully half of it talking about his model train project. Also we talk about technology’s history, future, and responsibility to the world our descendants will inherit. This is a good one, folks. Strap in.
