It was October 1st, 2007, when the first episode of Geekazine Podcast (then called “the Show) hit the Podosphere. After spending a few years making music podcasts, I changed gears and got into the technology area. The website wasn’t up, nor did it have a name. Within the next month, I took time and scoured the Internet to find the perfect domain. After much deliberation trying to play on an idea that someone already had, I got inspired through a conversation. I was never a fan of “eZine”. I would always cringe when someone said it. I thought: “why not play on the aZine angle, and start a series of web sites using it?” That is when Geekazine was born. Sister pages like Dorkazine, Sportazine, and Wikazine also became part of the family. I summarized if I had 10 websites with about 10-20,000 viewers each, the conglomeration would...
Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS It was a horrible 96 hours as last Friday, GoDaddy decided to move my websites from a retiring server to a new box. The problems started from there. Wikazine is completely down. Geekazine gets 500 and 503 errors. But I still want to get a show out to you guys. So this will be a shorter version of the podcast.

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Monday was a long but productive day. At Midnight, we launched the TPN at CES crowdfund – a crowdfund project for our trip out to CES. I talk about why we need it. Last night on TWIGG.TV we talked with Kathi Browne about Google Glass and Healthcare. It was a great hour worth of content about what the medical profession is planning for Glass. I’m also in the hunt for a new computer. Its time to get a newer processor so video can be processed faster.

Last night I wrote “I Quit” on my Social Networks. Today I explain my actions and also the resignation.
Well, it’s been on my mind for the last few weeks. On October 1st, I pulled the switch and the Day in Tech History Podcast has officially moved to it’s own website. Now found at www.dayintechhistory.com – The move means a lot of new additions and opportunities. The first idea is I can move this past podcasts. Two weeks ago I started the Pre-Cap, which is a roundup of the Tech History you will hear about during the week. This has a Share-Alike attribution, which means you can take this video and incorporate it into your videos as a segment. Secondly, I can bring on more bloggers that want to talk about historical events in technology history. We can also bring in video, pictures and more into their own categories – making this a fully rounded website. No Changes Necessary to the Day in Tech History for you!...

Most have heard of SEO – search engine optimization. It seems to be a common phrase nowadays. Every now and then I even hear ads on the radio that promote SEO because it is a viable thing for anybody’s website. The better it is searched, the more traffic that can come to it. However, there is another trend that has been creeping up. The same ideals, but this time In the microblog field. Something that could easily be known as TSO – or Twitter Search Optimization. Some practice this new ideal and others are even really good at it; but no matter what – if you are ignoring TSO, then you are ignoring a lot of new readers, listeners or viewers. Take a look at this 140 character statement: @geekazine #Twitter #network tool. We are a #blog #podcast and #news site. Check out the #website http://www.geekazine.com (#Geekazine) What...
You might remember the products. You might remember the hype. Then, you are tooling down highway 41 years later and all of a sudden you think to yourself – “Hey, whatever happened to…” Failed ideas. Maybe it was a great idea, but wasn’t made right, or design errors brought it down. Maybe it was just a bad product. Well, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and see if we cannot repeat these errors again. Oh yeah, why 16? Well because we could. The Computer Watch: Whether it was the Ruputer, the MSN Direct ‘Smart’ Watches, the Timex Data Link Watch or another gadget watch – BTW – I remember having a “Transformers watch”. It was awesome! Still, the Dick Tracey style communication watches, the “Computer on a wrist”, never really hit it off. I even remember a watch that gave you directions. You would put in the...
It was a Double Whammy this week. Earlier, one of my favorite play websites – Bitstrips – celebrated a 1 year anniversary. At the same time, Thomas – author over at Dorkazine – celebrated a birthday. It was a lot more than a year and we won’t say how old he is, only that he achieved the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything (If you ever read Hitchhiker, you’ll know).
