That's right, we're back... again! On The Verge returns today (Tuesday!) November 6th, and we'll be celebrating
All Hallows' Eve the US presidential election in style! For starters, Paul Miller went on a couple trips to see the culture of invention on both the (relatively) smaller scale of Maker Faire and larger scale of NASA. Then in the studio we're excited to have Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley talk about the future of discovery (and maybe share a few secrets on how to get special badges). We've also invited Polygon editors Chris Plante and Russ Frushtick to hang out and talk about both their launch and documentary series Press Reset.
Josh, Nilay, and Paul will of course be together again to talk about about the biggest stories of the month — and there will absolutely be a lot to talk about in this brave new world following major Apple, Microsoft, and Google events. This episode is brought to you by Samsung, we'll also be giving away a few Samsung Galaxy Note II devices to audience members.
To help with the victims of Sandy, we will be doing a food drive! Please bring canned goods if you're able — and consider donating to the Red Cross while you're at it.
