podcasting

It's been a while since our last podcast, but here's the latest episode from Steph and me. Thanks to Steph for the shownotes and links. Let us know if you enjoy it!

  • conferences: LIFT and Freedom of Expression
  • not everybody has the internet – other cultures use mobile phones (e.g. Nigeria)
  • technology overload at LIFT
  • note-taking on a computer: expected in some contexts, but feels really out-of-place in others
  • do we end up publishing our handwritten notes? trade-offs: handwritten and rewriting vs. direct blogging (Steph's very useful workshop notes)
  • scanning vs. photographing written material, document management and shredding
  • GTD status update (inbox zero)
  • FOWA coming up and other fun London stuff
  • Wedding 2.0 will be blogged on CnV, but will there be a webcast?
  • technology as a way to stretch our Dunbar number, wedding 2.0 with IRC backchannel and crackberries galore (note: this is entirely hypothetical!)
  • the Wedding Industrial Complex, trying to find an affordable venue in Dorset; IRC or SL would be cheaper, but is SL a registered venue?
  • physical words for virtual places
  • gap between us heavy users, and people who get a few e-mails a day, book holidays online and that's it
  • exploring how new tools could help us most people aren't curious about new stuff
  • winning over new users: finding holes in people's work processes and figuring out how to fix them
  • Steph loves Facebook, I'm not so keen to join new social networks
  • LinkedIn for business
  • Facebook as a mashup to keep up with what your friends are upto, but isn't that what blogs are for?
  • profile multiplication, tools need to talk to each other (holes in buckets)

If you liked that, and lord knows I'm not going to assume you do, you can also listen to episode 1.

How podcasting should really be

New podcast

by Suw on December 12, 2005

Whilst I was in Paris after Les Blogs, I got cornered into contributing to a podcast by my esteemed other half and his mate dotBen. The results are finally up online, at their brand spanking (no pun intended) new Talking Shop podcast.
I have nothing to say about the puritanical rabbits or their procreational habits. I am, however, also deeply disappointed that Messrs Anderson and Metcalfe have taken their cues regarding my role in such endeavours from the deeply disturbed duo, Spence and Reilly.
I shall be having words.

Movie Show #11 – Zombie Special

by Suw on July 5, 2005

Movie Show #11 is up – me and Cam chatting about Shaun of the Dead and 28 Days Later. Go download!

The Movie Show #008 up online now!

by Suw on June 6, 2005

If you really can't get enough of me, Cam and Ewan rambling on about movies, then you'll be wanting to go download the latest Movie Show from The Podcast Network. In this episode, Dr Who, Bagpuss and the trailer for the Herbie movie. Sorry for the clippiness of my voice – this whole recording Skype conversations thing is a dark art, and one we have yet to master.
If you really, really can't get enough of me, Cam and Ewan rambling on about movies, then you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed too and, y'know, do it the way it's supposed to be done.

Last week, I was chuffed as a small horse to be given the opportunity to talk to Nick Frost for The Podcast Network's Movie Show, and finally the interview is available for your delectation.
Apologies for the slightly crappy sound quality, especially to begin with – Skype was playing us up something chronic. To ameliorate the problem, I recommend listening under your bedsheets late at night with a torch in hand, in homage to the olden days when we used to pretend to be asleep whilst actually tuning in to obscure AM radio stations. Well, cool people did. I was too busy reading Asimov.
