Listen: 1h 27mins

  2. Point Nemo is the most remote place on earth. And a space graveyard.
  3. I just watched the new Hedy LaMarr doc, but had no idea Lord Byrons daughter; Ada Lovelace wrote the worlds 1st algorithm right back in 1843.

Lastly. We don’t have a CSR department. We are one. Finally here’s something in writing to tell you a little about what we do.
