                                In this episode:

                                • New Revelation: always keep a 3cm gap between logs (and humans)
                                • Wayne can't find the link but somewhere he read that number of car accidents significantly increased following mandatory seat belt laws - false security.
                                • Does other peoples' technology choices impact others?
                                • Here is one example article in The Guardian about the desire of some to regulating Facebook (such as how a tobacco or alcohol company needs to be regulated).
                                • Should we regulate Ubuntu Touch? We must assume bad apples will come...
                                • Everything should be opt-in (ie. NSFW), so you don't have to 'un-see' something.
                                • We hit 2000 people in the Telegram supergroup, yay. Here is a goofy fake movie trailer to celebrate. But what does that mean?
                                • UBports Community: Strengths, weaknesses, goals, etc.
                                • Where do people in the community disappear to? Busy, life events, etc.
                                • Have we marketed ourselves well?
                                • A listener (Dennis) speaks out! Hear his words with a movie trailer voice.
                                • Wayne believes a strong startup company ('Newco') will help project growth a lot.
                                • Keep freedom of devices. "I don't need less I need different at different times" - Dennis
                                • Joe was wondering about what 'leeway' means.
                                • Wayne validates Joe. Joe validates Wayne. That's a lot of validation...
                                • Joe likes his three devices. Wayne tries to 'hard sell' Joe to accept one device.
                                • Kaptain Krille sends a 'Why Firefox OS failed' video - a must watch if the big picture topic interests you.
                                • Is Ubuntu Touch convergence a solution in Africa (and other places) to reduce asset theft of fixed computers? Wayne heard a recent story that makes him think this would be a perfect fit.
                                • Landline Telephone and Convergence: Joe is sure there is a correlation connection but - they couldn't figure out what it is..
                                • Let's seriously discuss this on the forum! (Joe is sick and tired of talking about convergence). Here is a dedicated convergence topic discussion
                                • Some quick hardware worth looking at:
                                • Pinebook! Cheap!
                                • Shift(phones)
                                • Fairphone 2 goes down in price, it seems. Wayne forgot Euro conversion so price is actually $450.00 USD
                                • Call out! Get involved! (See Action Items below)
                                • Wayne's dabbling in javascript, Joe in Java...yeah!
