In this episode, we wonder if Michael's twins have become the official mascots of the show. Also, we have some early thoughts on the Blade Runner sequel, as both a movie and an entry in the cyberpunk genre. On topic, we discuss the emergence of progressive web apps (PWA) as the natural evolution of hybrid apps, and why PWA's--if supported by all browsers--could replace the walled gardens of mobile operating systems. With Chrome, Firefox, and Edge all on board, and Microsoft adding PWA support to the Windows Store, it seems like a good bet--or at least a worthy topic to explore.
