The artist who maps the twilight world of the surveillance agencies — It was a strange stage that Trevor Paglen took to, standing against a cartoon forest backdrop in a faux Gothic meeting room that was once a masonic lodge, looking out over a sea of attentive faces, gilded chairs and a plush, red carpet.

A beginner’s guide to archery — The centre of the target is exactly the same size as a man's head, Marcus Allen tells me. One of the teachers for my four-session basic training course, Marcus is a mild-mannered university lecturer during the week but, at the weekends, he likes to play at being a potentially lethal marksman with his impressive and very technical compound bow.

Bumpology author Linda Geddes on the need for social media etiquette — The team also discuss the future of Beats Music service under Apple ownership and why the new computing curriculum in the UK has children coding This week on Tech Weekly with Jemima Kiss we talk to award-winning author and science writer Linda Geddes, best known for her book Bumpology.

Equality isn’t a woman’s issue, it’s everyone’s. In gaming and outside — On those fine summer mornings, the earliest light would tickle the tops of the trees and trickle in through our kitchen window. My sons are two and five, and bowl downstairs for breakfast too soon after the sun rises, so we'd end up sitting around their tiny table in the sunlight, telling stories, them dribbling milky cereal on the floor, chattering about the plans for the day.

Is the Apple Watch the dawn of a new era in health tracking? - Tech Weekly podcast — The Tech Weekly podcast returns after the summer break. This week Charles Arthur, Jemima Kiss, Alex Hern and Keith Stuart, discuss the sale of the company behind Minecraft, Mojang, to Microsoft for $2.5bn. Also the team discuss last week's Apple launch of the iPhone 6 and the much anticipated Apple Watch.

UK entrepreneurs: we need better visas, better internet and a better ICO — UK tech entrepreneurs are calling for tax breaks in return for volunteering to teach code, along with creating a legal framework for bitcoin and more investment for teachers grappling with the new computing curriculum - all part part of an ambitious tech manifesto launched on Wednesday.

Technology manifesto calls for tax breaks for digital entrepreneurs — UK technology entrepreneurs should be given tax breaks for volunteering to teach computer programming and the country should create a legal framework for the crypto currency bitcoin, according to a coalition of investors and entrepreneurs.

Labour: 'Unleash digital creativity to shift power away from Whitehall' — Labour's policy chief has set out plans to transform digital services to increase public participation and customisation, taking power away from Whitehall in what is described as "a new democratic revolution in which people have more power".

Wikipedia boss Lila Tretikov: ‘Glasnost taught me much about freedom of information’ — Lila Tretikov was still a child when the Soviet Union began to embrace glasnost in the 1980s. The new freedoms enabled Tretikov, an academically brilliant student, to move from Moscow to New York by herself, waitressing to learn English and pay for her last year of high school.

Jennifer Haley on The Nether, her play about virtual reality - Tech Weekly podcast — This week on Tech Weekly with Aleks Krotoski we meet American playwright Jennifer Haley, whose play The Nether runs at the Royal Court theatre in London until 9 August. Jennifer discusses her exploration of the the dark side of virtual worlds in the not-so-distant future, and why technologies that recreate perfectly experiences and sensations also throw up deep moral and philosophical questions.
