On this week's Curmudgeon's Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about Europe a bit. Specifically mostly about European energy concerns. And they talk about Facebook. The outage. The leak. The perils of optimizing for engagement. And the possibilities of government regulation. But first the usual random stuff and some pre-show hijinks. Have fun!
