Are you ready for social media to curate your memorial service? Scrolling through my Facebook and Twitter feeds, I’m fairly certain I am not. Yet, this might be the future. In this episode of Tech Talk, talented multi-media artist Gabriel Barcia-Colombo talks about his recent exhbition on the Hereafter Life Institute and explains why digital legacy is an issue that he is exploring in his work. 

We also talk about the headline grabbing DDoS attack that took out big swaths of the internet. The attackers leveraged the internet of things to carry out the mega attack. What does this mean for companies developing internet connected devices and what does it mean for the everyday consumer who is connecting everything they own to the internet? Michelle De Mooy answers these questions and more.
