Vint Cerf, Peeple, And Elementary School Sci Fi

Radio Motherboard talks to Vint Cerf, one of theĀ fathers of the internet and Google’s “internet evangelist,” about the company’s plans to fly internet-providing balloons over the developing world, encryption and security, and a horrifying scenario where our kitchen appliances start trying to hackĀ our financial institutions.

We also discuss Peeple, the “Yelp for People” app that’s getting everyone riled up this week, a brand new scary Android vulnerability, and we end with a dramatic reading of a sci fi story written by one of our staffers when she was seven years old.
