Well, this was one heck of a week. On Monday, Facebook experienced a historic outage of its infrastructure that impacted services used by billions of people. On Tuesday, a new Windows came out. On Wednesday, Twitch disclosed one of the largest data breaches in years, maybe ever. We were duty-bound to talk through our view on all these momentous events, and some of the things we've learned along the way, and that's exactly what we did.

If you'd like to jump to any of the individual topics this week, the timecodes are:

Facebook: 00:10:19

Twitch: 00:36:57

Windows 11: 00:56:16
