ScattercastIt’s episode 11… and it’s mostly for all the new people…

- Lots of new readers this week, and possibly some new listeners, so a bit of a catch up on who I am and what this blog is about. All of this brought about due to that James Bond post.

- Comments, comments, comments… I need feedback folks!

ScattercastIt’s episode 10… and it’s a bit ranty…

On deck this week:

- More Microsoft ranting about their ad campaign and how they don’t know what they’re doing from their ivory tower.

- Financial woes of the world and how I think they came about and how they will end up impacting everyone in a spider-web fashion.

ScattercastIt’s episode 9… and a return of me coughing about halfway through I’m afraid.

Besides the voice issues, this week is about the following:

- When is Microsoft just going to admit they messed up with Vista as opposed to just throwing money at people to convince them to accept it?

- A very short bit on why the new iPods disappointed me so much and what it may mean for the future.

- Hardware, hardware, hardware. It’s developing so fast, how does anyone keep up with it? Should you? How do you keep yourself educated?

ScattercastEpisode of Scattercast is here folks… can you believe it’s been 2 months already?

This week is all about technology.

- Have you tried Google Chrome?

- Do you do enough to spread the word about web apps you love? Why not? Are you not doing your part for tech evangelism?

- Should you avoid Blu-ray and where is media going?

ScattercastWelcome back for the seventh episode of Scattercast!

Yes, it’s another episode of just me talking, sorry folks. This week I go off about being passionate about things and explaining some of the process behind how I choose my topics for my blog and how it all relates back to my passions on various subjects. I think it’s more interesting than it sounds once you listen to it, but that’s up to all of you to judge. Let e know what you think, and leave comments about the show in general!

ScattercastWelcome back for the sixth episode of Scattercast!

Just one subject this week, and it’s all about where I get inspiration. I ramble a bit, but it stays mainly on the focus of how I get inspired to write so many blog posts a week. Here, StarterTech or Mashable, all of those stories have to be inspired somehow! Oh… and some random Olympics and Scientology thoughts.

ScattercastWelcome back for the fifth episode of Scattercast!

A little bit of everything this week, folks! The United States is falling behind in Internet speeds still, and it angers me. Some more rambling about the summer Olympics and the last segment deals with my thoughts on this year’s upcoming iPods. A true Scattercast!

ScattercastWelcome back for the fourth episode of Scattercast!

This week I brought on Mark “Rizzn” Hopkins that I work with over at Mashable, and he has his own blog at Rizzn.com. Mark has been involved with podcasting for years, so we have a nice discussion about the history of the format, why it’s become popular and where he sees it going in the years to come. He’s probably forgotten more about the format than most people have ever even known, so it’s an interesting look into the thoughts of one of the biggest advocates of this style of chat show.

ScattercastJust me yammering at you this week folks, and I apologize in advance for my voice starting to go towards the end. Stupid pollen.

This week I talk about this story at Valleywag about people getting angry, again, about how Google Street View violates your “privacy”.

I give some thought to a comment left by Kim Greenblatt in regards to the post I did about The Dark Knight still not being profitable at the $314 million dollar mark.

And lastly I go on about this story of the band Buckcherry “leaks” their own music, and blames pirates. Stupid people.

ScattercastWelcome back to the second episode of Scattercast! I hope you all enjoyed the first one, because the second one is far better, I feel! Here is what you can look forward to this week.

Intro – Me taking care of some housekeeping of the podcast.

7:15 Bruce Lidl from DivX comes on the show – Bruce talks about the D-Link DivX Connected HD Media Player (DSM-330) which is a follow up to a list I did here called How To Watch Internet Videos On Your TV back in February.

29:30 M and I review The Dark Knight. Instead of the normal surly review by me, I bring in my best friend, M, to help with the review, and temper my opinion some.

Wrap-up of the show and info on subscribing and what is to come next week at the end of the show.

ScattercastBoy has the learning curve on this been steep, but here is the first episode of my podcast, “Scattercast”. Many, many thanks to Mark Hopkins for cutting the learning curve for me considerably, and thanks to my friend Renee for coming up with the name. For those who want to why the name “Scattercast”, it refers to the subject matter being scattered.

New episodes will be posted on Fridays, and will always be posted here. If you want to subscribe to an RSS of just the podcast, you can do so here. I have also submitted the series to iTunes, but not sure when it will show up over there.

This episode is about how and when movies become profitable, and how I think allowing Eddie Murphy to star in any movie is pretty much a bad idea now.

Please let me know what you think of the show by leaving a comment here on the blog. Here’s
