The Next Chapter

I promised you last time I'd talk about what's next for me, so here's what I've been thinking lately. The end of The Lab did two things (besides killing a pretty heft chunk of my income): it gave me one week a month with nothing to do, and it eliminated my only regular television exposure. …

MacWorld Expo

MacWorld Expo is coming up January 15-18 and we're planning to do several shows from the convention hall including MacBreak Weekly and TWiT. Save the date. CES is the week before and I'm happy to say I will be skipping that monster of a show for the third year in a row. I was thinking …

The Race Begins

Sputnik was launched on this day 50 years ago, beginning the space race. And there's a more personal anniversary for me. It was on this day, three years ago, that I created my first podcast: an RSS feed of episodes of my radio show. You can read my post about it here. We've come a …

Another Brick In The Wall

Apparently Yahoo Podcasts was among its least used services. -sigh- YAHOO WILL DISCONTINUE ITS UNDERUSED service for finding and rating audio podcasts on Oct. 31, according to the Yahoo blog.

TWiT Update

Be Mine

TWiT is going up at one minute past midnight Monday morning (I'm holding it a little longer than usual because Dvorak revealed some news that's embargoed until then). I also have a new FLOSS Weekly and this WEEK in LAW to post this week. Monday I'll post a visit to the actual Gadget Warehouse, recorded …

Testing Testing

We just ran a short test on Talkshoe in preparation for the launch of our new TWiTcast: net@nite with Amber MacArthur. I was very impressed by the sound quality and interactivity. This is going to be fun! Talkshoe 2 comments This is the user interface. You can listen to the show and chat with other …

So Long Suckah

My last reason for using Windows might just have been eliminated. I use Adobe Audition for all my netcast recording and editing. It's a Windows program but there's no Mac version. Paul Figgiani just tipped me that Adobe has announced a new audio editing program for Windows and... ta da OS X. (Intel Macs only, …
