Other than my church’s podcast and CBC’s “Under the Influence”, your show is the only one that I listen to regularly. Your topics are insightful (even for a Canadian!) and it’s instructive to see how technology can be used in an effective way to reach people for Jesus.

“We just think that this is more likely to reach a generation that’s more used to an iPad than a hymnal,”

Arthur Jones, Pastor of The Well in Plano, TX., explaining why the church has spent 1.3 million dollars on a new 600 seat auditorium maxed out with the latest technologies.

“As president 35 years ago I called for decriminalizing — but not legalizing — the possession of marijuana. Since then, U.S. drug policies have been very horrible to our own country because of an explosion in prison populations. When I left the White House in 1980 there were about 500,000 Americans in prison — now there are five times as many. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world.  The number of people in prison for nonviolent crimes involving drugs has increased more than twelve-fold, 12 times as many.”

Former President Jimmy Carter renewing his call for the decriminalization of marijuana.

“People don’t want gadgets any more. They want services that improve over time. They want services that improve every day, every week, and every month…We want to make money when people use our devices, not when they buy our devices,”

Scott Bazos speaking at last Thursday’s announcement of the new Kindle PaperWhite, the 7 inch Kindle Fire HD, and the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD.
