Show Description for WordPress Post (70 words):

In this week’s show Kevin, Juan and Chris talk about magical little devices called Chromekeys, we check out what Googlers do to help make the world a better place, and look at how you can change your default font to something a little less controversial than Arial. We have a rant about needing more makers in this world and check out Ingress and other games you play in the real world. We also discuss the cool stuff you can do with the Doctopus script.
