Tech in Active Shooter Prevention

In episode 11 of The Binary Barbershop, Gus and Gabe tackle a topic that, in many ways, is delicate and complicated.

Gus and Gabe will talk about some of the technologies already in use in various places across the country as well as existing technology that could be better leveraged. The guys’ conversation in this podcast is driven by the desire to help people with technology. Admittedly, less planning went into this podcast and it was fueled by more emotion than anything else. Be on the lookout for a possible follow-up where we break down some of these technologies discussed in more detail.
