Podcasts on the radio?

I just read about a San Francisco Radio Station Going All Podcasts. For a while now, we've had traditional radio content being released in podcast form. However, this is the first time that I've heard about podcast created content being broadcast over the radio waves! They're billing it as a radio station by the people, [...]

Time to check back in

I've had the week off this week, so I sort of checked out from the network world. I sent out a slew of resumes, got a lot of personal things done, but stayed away from the microphone, my bloglines account and Wordpress. I have a few thousand blog posts to scan through, and a whole [...]

An official EduCaster podcatcher?

I think I'm going to have to buy into this one. iPodder has no provided people with a way to create a custom podcatching client preloaded with the feeds of your choice. You buy the client, for a nominal fee. Then you preload it with feeds of your choice and make it available for download. [...]

Don’t be afraid to cheat here.

I wish I knew where I found this one through (don't you hate when you lose your breadcrumb trail?), but this site has a ton of cheat sheets for common IT tasks, ranging from Microsoft Office keyboard shortcuts, to cabling tutorials, html code lists, UNIX commands, and much more. Definitely a site worth bookmarking for [...]

Go Flickr Go!

Got a great email from Flickr a day or two ago. You may have heard on the grapevine that we planned to reward our dear Flickr members who bought a Pro Account in the early days. Well, it's true! And since you're one of those lovely people, here's a little something to say YOU ROCK! [...]

How much cooler can one map get?

If you live in Chicago, you're going to love this one. Adrian Holovaty has taken Google maps and figured out a way to lay the CTA (that's Chicago Transit Authority to you tourists) over it! The CTA map isn't perfect, but it's pretty darn impressive. Find your location, click on CTA Map and voila, you [...]

Podcast: The show without a catchy title

Yes, another podcast for you to listen to and enjoy. I'm sort of all over the place in this podcast, but most of it DOES tie together. It starts off discussing the fact that my sister, Laura, discovered my blog and podcast the other day. Quite a revelation to discover that her brother has been [...]

Where did my fifth grade education go?

Back in 1986, my father brought home our first computer. He'd probably say it was his first computer, but he's wrong. He bought it for himself but by letting me play around with it he launched a hobby/passion of mine that has temporarily turned into a career. For those of you that are dying of [...]

Writing when it counts.

I love to write. I may not be the greatest or most eloquent writer in the world, but I always enjoy the act of writing. It's one of many reasons that I personally enjoy blogging. I used to write poetry and songs, and way back when I even began a novel. I wrote a few [...]

Podcast: The Seinfeld episode

Why the Seinfeld episode? Well, to be honest, I really didn't have anything in particular to talk about when I started recording. I just felt like creating a podcast and seeing what came out. So it's sort of a show about nothing, hence Seinfeld. I wound up talking a bit about the "High School Bans [...]
