Geekazine New Patreon Page: Be a Part of the Sconnie Geek Nation!

Geekazine has decided to venture into the crowdfunding game by joining Patreon. As we’re approaching 10 years of podcasting and content creation, I have found the last couple years have not been as lucrative as in past. Cancelling a few events I attend for fresh content, I am now in a precarious situation as to the direction of the website and other properties. By joining Patreon, I am asking you – the content viewer – to help out with covering funds for my videos and travel. I have been able to do this for the last 9 years, heading to CES, SXSW, NAB, and more. I have also had some great success with other companies helping in this, but some of the companies are in a recessive year and not able to help out. But I always said that in order to have a funding page like Patreon,...


From Austin, TX and SXSW

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS I got to Austin early because travel prices were a lot cheaper. Sitting at a Red Roof Inn off Hwy 35. This last week was simply just getting things ready for this trip. Lots of video and Day in Tech History episodes set up for release. TWIGG last night was a blast. We debuted a new segment called “Glass Miami”. We also answered some live questions.

16 Tech Innovations that didn’t quite stick 2

16 Tech Innovations that didn’t quite stick

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...

Happy Anniverthday to Bitstrips and Thomas

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).

Geekazine Podcast Ep. 1 on Internet Archive

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSFor a while I have been wondering what I should do with my old Podcasts – After all, they should be somewhere for access, but where? Today I decided to put up Episode 1 on the Internet Archive; a collective for archiving the World Wide Web. It’s not a be-all/end-all for where my older shows are going to go. For now I will still have the old Podcasts in the exact same area as before. However, it’s always good to have another spot if you want to check out how the show has progressed. For now I will be putting up the first few shows on the site. If you listen to the 1st show, you will notice it is called “The Show”. I didn’t have “Geekazine” just yet. It also contains the intro of my previous Podcast – “The Independant Music...

You’ve made lots of money for the company and are the most loyal employee they know of. Yet, tough times are ahead and the company decides you are one of the 10% they have to let go to stay afloat. It’s a frustrating thing to have happen, but what are you gonna do? Now let’s flip that: You are at your job and survive the cut, but now you are in the position to take up a part of that person who was laid off. As companies like Intel and Google are looking at trimming the fat, it makes the average consumer wonder – what will our customer experience be without 10% of the workforce?

Geekazine and Friends 2009 Predictions

If you like this article, please DIGG it. Thanks! In Part 1, we looked at last years predictions. The numbers weren’t too shabby. This year, we’ve expanded the list to anyone that wanted to contribute. And Contributions I did get. 250 of them. I spent most of Friday night and subsequent morning filtering the list to a couple pages worth of information. We have CEO’s, CTO’s, Marketers, Podcasters and even a Psychic helping us with this years list. Of course at the end of the list I will be adding my 2 cents worth for 2009 on Page 2.  So without any further ado, let’s get started.

Major Website Updates – Bitstrips

OK. It’s 4:51 AM and I am still up in front of the computer. I spent a lot of time on the site today doing major fixes and finishing the move of all the media. At 4 AM this morning, I completed the task. All 153 Podcasts are now on a new server. You should be able to get to any of the content over the last year. Since I was up, I decided to commemerate with a Bitstrip. I call it an esoteric look at re-coding. Now I am going to sleep. Good night. ZZZZZ……….

Ramblings 11-08-08 – Media Mad Dash

As you know, my media has been down for a while. I have kept Quickcasts relavant, but the first 52 Podcasts have been taken down until the hunt for a new media server has been found. It was a hard decision, but it had to be done. Well I am happy to announce I have all the media loaded up to the new server and am ready to reactivate it. I am taking this 1 step at at time because when I do it, the other podcasts might get affected. Therefore, I will be making plans tomorrow and hopefully by Monday this issue will be in the past. Because of the Media move, I have registered a new Domain: JMPEnterprise.com. It’s my parent website. You will mostly be going to that site to get media and to inquire about my services.

Quote the Geek – Nevermore – Bitstrips

It has been a long day. It all started yesterday when we began the process of moving a website to a different server so I could put up the new version of said site. All heck seemed to happen after that. We’ll leave the water heater out of this story, let’s just say I have taken 3 cold showers in the last 3 days. YAY! I have found I not only hit the limit on my website, I went WAYYYY past it. I had to remove 2/3rds of the podcasts just to get under quota. I am not sure what happened – but now I am on the hunt for a service to store the data. Once it finds a new home, I will make all adjustments. For now – Episodes 1-52 of the weekly podcast and the first 24 Quickcasts / 5 min show. are down. So...

Ramblings – 10-11-08 – Goodbye Aunt Edie, WP-Cache

The first paragraph goes out to my Aunt Edie. She passed away earlier this morning. I got to spend some time with her one summer when I was in grade school. At the time she owned an actual food concessions trailer. She would drive it to each location and serve the workers lunch, then close up and drive on back home. I learned how to play backgammon from Edie. Later in life, Edie and Uncle Ed, along with the kids, moved to a horse farm North-East of here. We had a few family get-togethers at the farm. The horses were being raised for the Kentucky derby, so they were rigorously trained. For that, I bid adeau to my aunt. She lived a solid life and taught me a few things. I won’t forget it.

Comcast has been riddled in the news lately. Bandwidth caps, overage fees all for simply surfing the internet. However they simultaneously opened Fancast – a Video Download site which won’t go against that cap. They also have Comcast.net, Disney Connection and Rhapsody Player Plus – All within their community. There was another company that tried to keep their members contained within their virtual fence. That company was AOL.  However, AOL has been opening up for all to use. Still, I have to ask the question: Is Comcast becoming the next AOL?

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage? 0

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt would be interesting to see how much bandwidth I go through a month. Uploading shows, ustream channel, downloading software updates and media content.  All of it legally. There are some that decide to use their internet connection without abandon. They download movies, music and computer programs without legally paying for it. I have seen many downloading 4 to 5 items at a time, which at gigabytes at a pop, it’s a lot of data that passes through. And with programs like bittorrent, not only does it download the items, but it turns your computer into a “Seed” in which others can use to pull from. Comcast is working on a model to cap bandwidth per month. For some it won’t be noticeable. For the internet Zealot, they might find it tougher to work and...
