KAZ: Episode 91

OK, OK…so we had to finally officially give up on the Dog Days of Podcasting! Life intervened this past week, but regardless…the DDoP managed to get me back into the groove of podcasting. Mission accomplished.

In my first post-DDoP episode, I ramble a bit about podcasting meta (scheduling, subject matter, workflow, etc.), complain about the BoingBoing RSS feed, discuss our coming robotic overlords, mention the new availability of the Feynman lectures at Caltech, wax rhapsodic about hummingbirds, and finally nerd out a bit about my DHCP server leases. All in all, a good podcast!

Just a quick rant from the road…I’m on another podcast tonight, so this may be my only chance to record today. (UPDATE: and I’m a day late uploading anyway…dang it!)

Kenzoid on iMortal

Had a fun time last night on Paul Fidalgo’s podcast, iMortal. We chatted about the Apple Live event, and I brought the Android “contrarian” perspective…

My first post-Apple Live event podcast! Yes…even though I’m not a member of the Apple ecosystem, I’m a nerd, so I keep up. Today I offer my post-event thoughts on the new iPhones and the Apple Watch.

Chatting a bit tonight about writing an Amazon (and Goodreads) review of Peter Watt’s Echopraxia. Also, I’m psyched that I’m doing my first Linux bare metal (v. VM) install in several years. Cross your fingers, folks!!

KAZ: Episode 85

Tonight, I talk about Echopraxia, the newest novel from one of my absolute favorite artists, Peter Watts. I ramble for a bit about my fanboy attraction to the man and his work, and then ramble some more about the book. I know…my current “review” is little more than a ramblefest, but I’ll endeavor to do better. I really do like this book.

KAZ: Episode 84

Back on it! I pull a topic off the stack, and talk about our newest edition to the family, Rosie. She’s a pure rescue (ie, found out of the middle of the road out in the middle of nowhere, probably dumped), and she’s the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. Photos in the show notes. See ya again tomorrow!

KAZ: Episode 83

Ah…ok. Did I really believe I was going to podcast through Dragon Con!? Well, it was fun, and I’ve mostly recovered; I guess I’m getting older. Let me rephrase that…I’m getting older.

*sigh* Dragon Con over, I’m old…I’ll cut it short today and ramble about more stuff tomorrow. Good to see everyone! Yep…I’ll finish out my 30 podcasts in somewhat more than 30 days!! Keep listening, my friends!
