Christopher Penn of the Financial Aid Podcast is leading an initiative that may turn the entire music industry on its head. It’s called Bum Rush the Charts, and Chris summarizes it […]

Do not install the Apple WWAN Support 1.0 update

On February 19, my Mac started to prompt me to install the newly release WWAN support 1.0 update for OSX. Since the update referenced hardware I do not use, I dutifully ignored the request to apply it. Unfortunately, there was no way to select “permanently ignore”. Yesterday, the inevitable happened. I accidentally clicked on Install […]

Great turnout at Vancouver Podcast meetup

TC Lions Pub may have the biggest beer pitchers in Canada. We had to cancel the second pitcher when we discovered that the server wasn’t kidding when he said “one gallon pitchers”.

Let’s take care of our community

By their very existence, Podcast meetups and Podcast conferences reinforce a sense of community among their participants.  PodCamp Toronto was no exception.  In fact, PodCamp Toronto had the greatest number of sessions on the concept of community of all conferences I have attended and followed.  That made leaving the event early to catch a flight […]

UPDATE 070226: Added photo No matter the circumstances, any time there is a change in personnel in a band it can be stressful for both the band and its following. Just ask Van Halen.

PodCamp begins

There are about 200 people packed into room 359 361 of the Rogers Communications Centre at Ryerson University for the opening remarks of PodCamp Toronto. The whole room dynamic changed when Leesa Barnes challenged eveyone to meet three people you have never met before — “someone you didn’t come here with, someone you didn’t sleep […]
