GeekWire reporters explored the frontiers of technology in some unusual locations this week — visiting a truck stop in North Bend, Wash., to learn about the future of logistics and transportation; riding along with a police officer enforcing the state’s new distracted driving law; and attending an elite party thrown by a technology-powered dating service that uses a highly-selective admissions-based model to screen potential users.
We discuss what they learned on this episode of the Week in Geek podcast, with GeekWire’s Monica Nickelsburg, Taylor Soper and John Cook.
