that talk about melting motors makes me sad. I just had a forged rod snap and go through the block on my 500hp Subaru WRX :(

I feel like Joe was really excited at the beginning and bored out of his mind at the end. John doesn't give responses, he gives speeches. "Hey John, did you get the new iPhone?" "So in 1847 there was a man named..."

I would love to see the next step in VR/AR for a program/app like Lithodomos that transports the user into an ancient city... the program in it's current state absolutely blows me away... I cannot wait to see what is next. This was a very cool episode. Thank you Joe and thank you John for coming on.

Carmack is a f***ing legend in so many ways. Having said that, I'm really not a fan of FB in general or them owning oculus, and I'm quite shocked to see Carmack supporting and believing in their "mission". Doesn't seem to add up with his general outlook. Call me paranoid, but I've never considered Facebook mission to be "connecting people", I see it far closer to "claiming ownership of peoples personal data and selling it to third party marketers".

Adam Boyt why wouldn't he agree with them? most folks in IT seem to share same general worldview. I'd be surprised if he WASN'T fully on board.

Yeah! why aren't these guys talking about only the things I care about in a way that is preferable to me?! I'm gonna waste my time writing a grumpy note that neither of them will ever read!

Shane Mallett lol Carmack is way more successful of a developer than you could hope to be. Is he triggering your false sense of superiority by talking about cutting edge stuff in layman terms for Joe and his audience?
