Twitter: A Waste of ...

We’ve talked quite a bit on the show about Twitter, what it’s good for, what it’s not, what it means, and what it doesn’t– today, I came across this interesting (and somewhat surprising) piece from the How-To Geek on how Twitter kills productivity unless...

The Original Podcast...

We cover a lot of ground on Google this week– is their stand on net neutrality changing?  With the demise of Wave, what does Google’s development model really look like now?  That and more changes in the Milwaukee radio market, on this week’s podcast. Also, we felt like you...

The Wave Is Dead

GigaOM on Aug 5, 2010 11:19:09 AM Google has decided to pull the plug on Wave, its innovative collaboration and communication tool. That’s a shame, because it can actually be a pretty useful product — as long as you can actually figure out what to use it for — and it showcased some big,...

Net Neutrality on Li...

Google and Big Red are close to reaching consensus on this issue, according the the NY Times. A little background on net neutrality, for those of us that haven’t thought about it in a while. Are we reaching a regressive stage of Internet development and innovation, or are we bound by...

Green gone

Green will be leaving WTMJ at the end of the year, when his contract is up. Will WTMJ be better for it?  It depends on who replaces him, I suppose.  I’m stretching on these topic ideas…can you...

America: Are you hap...

Yet another useless use for Twitter? BBC – dot.Maggie: America: Are you happy?. What would an actual scientist think about analysis like this?  Do they think it’s brilliant or crazy? Quote: “”It was a really neat visualization that followed the whole game and let you...

What do we need to d...

You find stories like this all the time… BBC News – Urgent spacewalks to fix ISS pump. …buried.  Does science need a PR boost, or are we all too dumb to care?  Perhaps space exploration needs to be more like NASCAR?  Would more accidents get people to...

The Original Podcast...

On podcast #16, Kyle and I talk about e-books overtaking the paper book market, U2 & the Pope, new Russian spaceports, and a legitimate, academic use for Twitter.  All the stories can be found on the podcast blog. This week’s episode clocks in at around 50 minutes.  Thanks as always...

Would Lincoln Have T...

One of the leading issues that I hear from people who do not use and have not tried to use Twitter is, “What the hell is it good for?”  This complaint is typically followed by a derogatory comment like, “Why should I care what Ashton Kutcher had for breakfast?” I often...

BBC News – Rus...

BBC News – Russia to kick off construction of a new spaceport. First we find spies, and now this?! The port is actually meant for civilian use, but it’s nice that the Russian government is providing the infrastructure for it. Perhaps we could redirect all the revenue Americans are...

Theologian Calls New...

Theologian Calls New U2 Album ‘Most Thoroughly Christian’ Project to Date | Christianpost.com. Conspiracy theory: What if U2 is really a band co-opted by JP2 to promote Catholicism to popular culture? U2 wouldn’t need the pope to do that, I suppose, but I’ve always...

I didn’t think this would happen so soon. The new face of reading? Some e-books now outselling hardbacks – CNN.com. I always assume the number of people who are less tech-y than me is far greater than those are more tech-y. Where’s my...
