The MacVoices Live! of panel Chuck Joiner, David Ginsburg, Eric Bolden, Jim Rea, Jeff Gamet, Web Bixby, and Brian Flanigan-Arthurs finishes off this session with two topics: the preservation of family photos and the security of Ford vehicles. The importance of safeguarding legacy photos in a time of multiple natural disasters is stressed, along with some recommendations for scanning and archiving in the cloud. Using Ford’s recent statement about a software vulnerability, the panel discuss concerns over the integration of entertainment systems with critical vehicle functions, reflecting on past hacking incidents in the automotive industry. The episode concludes with an exploration of modern library services, underlining their evolving role in communities beyond traditional offerings. (Part 3)
