BBS #0011 – Tech in Active Shooter Prevention

Recorded April  5, 2018

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. With all of the political jockeying with regard to gun control, there seems to be very little discussion about how we can use currently existing technology to aid in the prevention and increase response time to active shooter situations. 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.
