WLP52 Too Much Tech?

This episode is a bit of a time travel, as we recorded the Virtual Coffee in 10th Sept. But still very relevant of course! And we have a guest talking about an event from last week, so we're not completely catching our breath.

03:20 Pilar speaks to Gerard Beaulieu about the NASAGA conference. You can see a video of Gerard talking to someone at the conference here: https://youtu.be/aUjCp2OT0ao

16:55 Pilar and Lisette talk about whether there is just Too Much Tech.
