I’ve enjoyed dropbox for a long time, but has become less useful to me first stopping the hosting web pages and then when the school network where I worked blocked it. I now use O365 OneDrive for syncing files from home to work quite happily. I’ve quite a few aliased setting files and the like sitting in dropbox, but they are only used from my home mac now. One or two drafts action send text from my phone to dropbox but nothing very important.

This week, Doug and Dai discuss research in schools, walking long distances, screen time, digital citizenship, tech veganism, fully automated luxury communism, and more!
I enjoyed listening to this episode, as usual Doug and Dai chat about many ideas current ideas that I have though about but not had the chance to talk through. I enjoy agreeing and disagreeing with their views often both at once. My favourite one this week was Dai’s opinion on holidays as a bad thing 👍
