Vint Cerf Talks People Centered Internet

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSYou may or may not like your Internet speed right now, but in some areas, Internet is non-existant. We’re not talking 3rd World countries, either. There are many areas in the U.S. that also go with little to no signal for children trying to learn and grow. That is why Vint Cerf helped create the People Centered Internet. I got to sit and talk with Vint at the IEEE Tech for Humanity Series at SXSW in Austin, TX about where we are in this initiative. Who is Vint Cerf? Recognized as a founding father of the Internet, Vinton Gray Cerf was best known as co-inventor of the TCP/IP with his team at DARPA. Cerf then moved to MCI to help launch the first commercial email system – called MCI Mail. Vinton continued on, helping develop ICANN. He currently sits on multiple technology...

I went to New York with Google Glass. No One Hates them Here 1

I Went to New York with Google Glass. No One Hates Them Here…

You might have heard the hate issues associated with Google Glass. Well I would like to tell you my story of how someone either put me down or caused physical violence – but I can’t. And I went to one of the most populated areas in the world. I thought for sure with my recent trip to New York I would get a hater, an accausting of, or at least a “can you please take those off?” Yet all I got was the same questions people in my city would ask. When I arrived in NYC (and after attending part of a conference I was there for) I stopped into 5 Napkins restaurant. Located at 690 9th street in Hell’s Kitchen, this is one place I highly recommend you have a burger at. I arrived at the restaurant and the first person to notice Glass was the host...


WeVideo Cloud Based Video Editor – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWeVideo is a great way for someone like me to really get video out to my Blip and YouTube services. The Cloud based video editor allows me to not have to carry a computer while I am on the floor interviewing people. All I have to do is upload the video to the service then do the editing on a tablet, phone or even a press machine. I tell it where to post and then send it off while I go do another interview. I talk with Krishna of WeVideo about the service. The big question is about uploading the video and using the service on hotel Wifi. Krishna eludes to the fact you might not want to upload RAW content – first set it to a reasonable MP4 bitrate. Once the files are up on the service the system brings...


Is Google Hangouts Trying to Get Rid of your Phone Number?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS What an awesome week in Austin TX for SXSW! Of course, we cannot forget the tragedy that followed the event this year. If that would have happened 24 hours earlier, I might have been part of it. That is how fragile life is. I took NAB off the schedule for now unless I find a last minute sponsor. If you would like to help out, let me know. This weekend, Jennifer and I went to her sister’s house. We watched Frozen for the first time. Its interesting how a good movie can change your mindset. Let it go. Two new products in the review bin – the AMD R7 250 video card and the Blue Mic Nessie (which I am using in this episode). I give my thoughts on these products. Show notes are getting a slight change – moving the...


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.

Interview with Downtown Podcast – Bringing in the Community

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSSome podcasters have a microphone and computer in a closet to create their shows. Others use a webcam and Google Hangouts. But what if you had a live audience you can play to – and also bring that audience into the show? That is what Downtown Podcast does. I had a great opportunity to speak with a group of podcasters that are not only putting on a great show, they are doing it with the downtown Las Vegas community behind them. The Downtown Podcast is a show recorded live every Thursday night at the Ogden in downtown Las Vegas. The podcast is about the new startup scene being created in the old part of town. Entrepreneurs from all areas are creating this new community that actually is one. People helping people succeed. The crew are creators themselves. Dylan Jorgensen (Ticket Cake),...


The Changing YouTube – Trolls Beware!

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS I am officially a Google Helpouts mentor. You can ask me questions not only about Podcasting, but also help with Wirecast. Last night’s TWIGG was awesome collection of news. We talked about XE11, surgeons on Glass and more. I have officially moved TWIGG to its own YouTube channel – you can now find at youtube.com/thisweekinglass . Was in Tucson last week for Techonomy13. Awesome sessions from many people. Tony Hsiesh was the most prolific, as he talked about moving the company into Vegas and the change from shoes to much more. TPN Crowdfund is still going. T-shirts are great stocking stuffers!

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...
