Episode 4 – Production

Data is so fragile. Now that data has moved into the cloud, it’s more accessible, but also more ethereal. We love how easy it is to work with remote data, but we have to be even more careful about creating back up points and fail-safes.

Today’s story highlights web-based sewing pattern business Colette Patterns, and what happened when they accidentally destroyed some of their customer data.

This Episode’s Music

Lullatone make sweet, sleepy, sine-wave-riddled songs with whispered lyrics, poppy melodies, and sparse, carefully arranged beats. Lullatone creators Yoshimi Tomida and Shawn James Seymour utilize children’s instruments, splashing water, household sounds, keyboards, glockenspiel, melodica, and electronic sounds to craft their delightful songs for both young and old. This duo truly embody the child’s spirit reminding us all that our bodies may grow old but our souls can stay forever young.
