'Father of the Internet' isn't mad, he's just disappointed (The 3:59, Ep. 207)

We talk about our prior conversation with Vint Cerf (who is hearing impaired) on tech accessibility. Also, does Twitter still have a chance to win the livestreaming battle?

The "Father of the Internet" is not happy, but is also not without hope.

We caught up with Vint Cerf while at South by Southwest to chat about tech accessibility, and why he's so frustrated with how people design the web. His biggest gripe? That accessibility is an afterthought and not included in the blueprints from the beginning.

Also on the podcast, we chat about what volunteer coders are doing for Louisville, Kentucky, during their weekend hackathons, and if Twitter still has a leg to stand on after Amazon snatched streaming rights to the NFL's Thursday Night Football games.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
