Of course, with the Holiday season, Technology news slows down a little. We still have a great list of history though. Including this article – On December 26th 1982, TIME Magazine does the unthinkable. They award the “Man of the Year” award for the first time to a non-human being. The PC received the honor this year. It was called the “greatest influence for good or evil.”
Other items in History – Hackers, Hackers, Hackers. The Transistor is demonstrated for the first time. Charles Darwin embarks on his famous voyage aboard the HMS Beagle and SELinux is released to the Open Source Community.
I also realized after the podcast that this marks the 100th Geekazine Quickcast.
