Audioblog for August 31, 2004

Here is the audioblog for August 31, 2004. I discuss Paul Graham’s talk for IT Conversations with a brief digression into my checkered past with Lisp (and why programming language snobs are really tedious), the term “bundles of passion”, still more on enclosures and the imminent return of Reality Break to the radio airwaves.

  1. Hi Dave, I listened to your shows this morning on my way to work. I think the whole iPodder idea is great and the audio feeds right into my iTunes/iPod will add so much value to my 30 minute trips to work. Like your shows and will keep grabbing those enclosures. Regards, Thomas, The netherland. PS, Funny you did a show for KRVS, I was a USL freshman in 1998 and recorded a “Cartalk” commercial once.

  2. Hey Thomas, thanks for your comment! I’m glad you are liking the audioblogs. I’ll do what I can to keep it entertaining for you. Out of curiousity, how did you get from the Netherlands to Lousiana (or vice versa)? A lot of my fellow computer science grad students were international students from a wide variety of places, and I always wondered how they ended up there.

    I really enjoyed my time in Lafayette, at USL (or ULL now) and at KRVS. I still keep up with Dave Spizale – GM of KRVS – and try to talk to him on the phone at least every year or so. He’s a great guy, and his willingness to entertain the crazy notions of a kid who just walked in off the street to do this radio show was why it happened. Now that they MP3 stream, I listen to the station here. Just today I was listening to a saved edition of “Zydeco Pas Est Sale.”
