IT Conversations

I miss IT Conversations. I should call Doug Kaye just to have him say “Sathyaish Chakravarthy” to me. Also on:Facebook Twitter

Podcast Queue Update

As of March 23 2011, here is where my podcast queue stands. I’m still working off the long baby listening layoff. I’m at a cool 10 week, 70 day backlog. Right now I’m listening to Good Clean Fun from January 12th. My trusty script that tells me the playtime of my queue just blipped under […]

Podcast Quality Vs. Engagement

A few years ago there was a blog frenzy on here about podcast production. I listened to a podcast where the host was demonstratiing how he made his show sound professional, with his Heil microphone and his compressor and effects chain. I listened to that show and in fact I thought that his show sounded […]

“You Can’t Solve Business Problems with the Legal System”

I heard an interesting session from the O’Reilly Tools of Change conference via my IT Conversations podcast feed. One of Google’s senior copyright lawyers William Patry spoke about how you can’t use copyright law to solve your business problems – not by altering the enforcement of it or lobbying for stricter laws or any of […]

Saul Griffith on the Wattage of a Lifestyle and Energy Literacy

Perhaps my favorite presentation ever on IT Conversations is this session from ETech with Saul Griffith (presentation hardcopy here). He discusses some assumptions on how carbon dioxide levels could be stabilized at non-catastrophic levels and then what the energy requirements of the maximum average lifestyle would be. Interestingly, he analyzes his own lifestyle in terms […]

The Coup in America

I am tentatively pleased that the attempted coup in the United States of America, the one that would install Hank Paulson as acting leader of the American Junta, is running into problems. The first laugh I’ve had from the whole situation came from the image attached to this NPR story. I’m very proud of Christopher […]

Around the Podosphere

Here’s some more things of note from my recent podcast listening, as I slowly work off the backlog. Some of this stuff is a month or more old (some of it is years old but I’m just discovering it) but all good. I heard Justin Kownacki on MacVoices #676. In it, he was talking about […]

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for September 9, 2006. Today is a clip show and a live bootleg show. I play bits of other podcasts that have struck my fancy later and several songs that are freely available out there on the internet. I start with a […]

Bruce Sterling on the Internet of Things

I had previously blogged about and quoted bits of the Bruce Sterling “Internet of things” talk as it was edited and aired on O’Reilly’s Distributing the Future. Yesterday I heard the full talk from IT Conversations which I found superior. It’s a really good talk, and it made me feel better about the occasional contentiousness […]

Future of Work

I heard an interesting talk on IT Conversations, Thomas Malone on the future of work. The basic thesis is that democracy is a function of the cost of communication, and that as communication costs dropped in society democracy emerged in governance. He posits that we will see democracy in business governance in the same sort […]

Voices Lives!

Just when you thought Voices in your Head was defunct, out comes a new episode. In this I interview Scott Sigler about using podcasting to promote his books. Interesting stuff. Also on:

Seeing and Hearing

Here’s some stuff lately that has interested me, bothered me or amused me in citizen media. Today’s episode of Rocketboom mostly reruns this thing some guys in Berlin did where they stuck a projector outside a train and showed movies on the subway walls. Although the project is kind of cool, I think the actual […]

2.0

In a weird coincidence, just this morning I was thinking about how annoying the “any frigging thing 2.0″ nomenclature has become. Web 2.0, Life 2.0, My Left Butt Cheek 2.0, it has all become tiresome. Here is Tim Bray talking about the same subject. He seems to be approaching it more from the perspective of […]

I Interview Cory Doctorow

My interview with Cory Doctorow for Voices in your Head is now live. Enjoy! Because of the Cory’s fame and the built-in BoingBoingability of interviewing him, without a doubt this will be the most listened to episode of Voices so far. Also on:

Bloggerati

I’ve been blogging for almost three years and podcasting for almost a year now, but often I feel really disconnected from the “bloggerati” or whatever else you might call them. I’m not going to use the letter-grade rankings that I hate so much. When I listened to Halley Suitt interview Meg Hourihan, she began with […]

Rob Glaser on RealAudio

I listened to the Larry Magid interview with Rob Glaser of Real. They were talking about the tenth anniversary of streaming RealAudio. I’m pretty sure I heard Glaser claim that they were the first to do it, which is patently false. Both WREK in Atlanta and WXYC in Chapel Hill were streaming 6 months before […]
