You Are Dumber Than We

So I’m checking out the We Are Smarter Than Me site (google it – they get no linkage from me). Hmm, nice, an interview with Doc Searls, a current one with Mike Arrington. Neat. But there’s no download link (that I can see) for the mp3 file. Oh, okay. There’s the little orange XML button. …

Me again on Linuxreality…

The second part of my guest segment on the linuxreality podcast is up today. More Inkscape chatter from yours truly. The new found fame I’ve enjoyed because of this is just wonderful. I did a photo shoot for Podcast&Ammo magazine just last weekend. Unfortunately it included a nude photo spread and the editor deemed it …

Slicing and Dicing mp3 files

As I’ve likely mentioned before, one of the things I like about my newcar is the USB port right in the front panel of the stereo. I bought awee little Lexar Jumpdrive Firefly recently which I keep filled with variousfolders of music and podcast mp3 files. I just stick it into thestereo and it works. …

Pre-Hammered Sinatra

I finally got around to watching Steve Gillmor’s Bad Sinatra 1. Since I don’t own an iPhone (and have no desire to), I decided I’d use the nifty program DeVeDe to burn it to a DVD and experience the full glory of Gillmor on my living room TV. With a slice of cold pizza in …

Listening Habits

As I’ve written about a couple of times in the past, I’m hooked on podcasts and there doesn’t seem to be any let-up in sight. I burn mp3 CD-RW’s and they fuel my 50 minute commute each way to and from work. I probably end up listening to about 3-5 hours of podcasts a week. …

Engaging once again

For those who might have quit listening to the Gillmor Gang, two things about the one just released: 1. Again it was split into 5 parts, and just to be more aggravating the parts were numbered in reverse… part 5 is the first segment, part 1 is the last. 2. The last segment (released as …

Sounding Like a Gillmor Fanboy…oh gawd..

Reading Todd Cochrane’s post earlier today about how he ‘used to listen to the Gillmor Gang’, got me to pondering why I’m still listening to it – and perhaps with more earnest than ever. I won’t pretend to defend Steve’s decision to chop it into bite-sized portions. But, he seems to have met me halfway …

Podcast=Bleccch, Netcast=Yummm

Early this Saturday morning I read a post by Leo Laporte (posted even earlier this morning) about Apple sending a cease and desist letter to a software and services company called Podcast Ready claiming that the terms “Podcast Ready” and “myPodder” infringe on Apple trademarks. He makes some great points: Now I’m far FAR away …

Sparks on the Rails

Listening to the last few Gillmor Gangs has been like watching a train wreck. You can’t take your eyes (or in this case ears) off of it as the brakeless train hurtles faster and faster. It only seems a matter of time until the wheels leave the rails. But man, until then it’s getting less …

Photocast Network Launches

A new podcast network has been created which focuses (parden the pun) on photography related podcasts. You can find it at PhotocastNetwork.com. There are currently 8 shows on board. I’m only a regular subscriber to one of them at the moment (TipsFromTheTopFloor) but I’ve listened to (and watched) some of the other ones from time …
