Podcasting

A few years back, I heard of, and was quite taken by, an idea which would let busy executives use their time more productively. This was a time pre-mp3 but post-cdr. It was pretty simple. Either at the office, or at home, the executive would burn off an audio CD packed full of useful information - emails, briefings, news clips. They could then listen to it whilst stuck in traffic.

That I missed the link between this and it's obvious mp3 cousin, the podcast, staggers me.

Java Posse is a pod cast about Java, for Java developers. And I find it quite rewarding to listen to this on the way to and from work. Sometimes I even wish my commute was longer...

Like a red rag to a bull

Given what's happened recenetly with some cartoons, this just doesn't like a good idea. Is it just me? Am I mad?

Unintentional 133t speak.

Advertistment on the UK Freeview digital music channel "Smash Hits! radio" for mobile phone ringtones:

press green for the sh! tones chart.

How appropriate, I thought.

Quote of the day

I found this today. I think it's wonderful, on many levels.

"
On two occasions I have been asked [by members of the British Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?'

I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."

Charles Babbage
The Inventor of the Analytical Engine - the first computer

Marathon Madness

I've not been very impressed with the BBC's recent affection for self-censorship. But now they have really 'taken the biscuit'. They've started censoring cake recipes. Forunately, there is always www.archive.org

It's been a while since I last posted here...[etc etc blah blah]. Watch this space, I'm going to start blogging again.
