(T+A #31) Technology and the Arts: 3/19/2008

In this installment of the Technology and the Arts podcast, we share some interesting news, web sites and online resources we have come across recently, including Google’s Picasa Web Albums, MacForge.net — a resource for open-source projects for MacOS, an MIT startup called DropBox that provides online storage and synchronization, Improv Everywhere’s “Food Court Musical,” and the Haiku project — an open-source revivial of the Be Operating System. Plus, we discuss Trent Reznor’s seemingly successful — and money-making — online distribution experiment for the latest project from Nine Inch Nails. Hosts: Brian Kelley and John LeMasney.

  1. Brian,

    Thank you for mentioning SupremeGS, Inc. in your discussion of BeOS and Haiku.

    For your listeners, the commercial version of BeOS was sold to Palm, Inc. in the early 2000’s, later spun off as PalmSource, and eventually sold to Access Co., Ltd. in 2005 (http://www.access-company.com/). PalmOS version 6, codenamed Cobalt, was supposed to include some technologies from the BeOS acquisition, but it never saw the light of day. PalmOS 5.4.x, codenamed Garnet, has been the standard version on PalmOS devices for almost half a decade.
