In this episode, Marty and Victoria feel depressed over the mess at SXSW regarding Gamergate and online harassment, then move onto a different kind of startup accelerator, cars that are auto-updated to include new features, and coding academies.

- Victoria has been playing with Jekyll: A static site generator that does a good job of balancing the amount of control over your blog vs the headache of configuration. Hosted using Github Pages!
What Marty’s up to
- Midterms in CS 106B
