Technology and the Arts 2.0 – Series 1, Ep. 3 (09.12.2012)

Technology and the Arts 2.0 – 09.12.2012 (Episode 3)

Unfortunately, the third episode of the Technology and the Arts webcast with John LeMasney and Brian Kelley wasn’t archived by Google correctly so only the last 11 minutes, 22 seconds of the conversation have been saved on YouTube (which you can view above). We know from viewer comments that the entire conversation was broadcast live on YouTube, so it’s a shame most of the good stuff we talked about (iPhone 5 release, Raspberry Pi, and how drawn-on nipples got the New Yorker banned from Facebook) is no longer available to watch.

Here is the latest Technology and the Arts Google+ Hangout with John LeMasney and Brian Kelley. Enjoy…

Note: I edited this post to include a revised version of the video that features the theme song/intro video before the actual conversation starts.

Well, John LeMasney and I recorded what is essentially a Technology and the Arts podcast via Google+ Hangout. The unedited video is above and it includes some technical glitches at the start. It also includes a bit around the 8:00 mark at which we both watched a video that I thought you would be able to see on the broadcast or archived video. Unfortunately, that is not the case so, below, I have also included the Technology and the Arts “intro” video I made at 5 a.m. today that includes the ol’ theme music, which is what John and I were watching. Enjoy…

Also, please note that I mistakenly mention Oct. 26 as the date of John’s appearance at the Princeton Public Library to for his Android vs. iOS “Smartphone Smackdown” with Khürt Williams. It’s actually Oct. 23 and here are the details.

“Christian Beach” CD now available on CD Baby

Christian Beach's CD now available on CD Baby

It’s finally here…the self-titled, solo CD from my good friend, singer-songwriter Christian Beach!

“Christian Beach” is now available for sale at CDBaby.com, where you can also listen to 30-second samples of each of the album’s 12 tracks.

And here’s a fun fact for you: I designed the CD artwork around a photo by Charlie Pranio, which means I just did layout and selected an appropriate font.

Anyway, if you want to check out Christian Beach live, he has a few shows coming up:

***BREAKING NEWS***
After recording the conversation part of our podcast, news broke that the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) would be altering its strategy of dealing with peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharers and torrent downloaders. Instead of filing lawsuits against unknowing single mothers and grandparents, the RIAA said it would work with Internet Service Providers to warn suspected downloaders about their activities. The ISPs would limit the users’ bandwidth or shut them off completely if illegal downloading continued. For more on the story, click on the following links:

John and Brian recorded this final Technology and the Arts podcast at the Crystal Diner in Lawrenceville, N.J.

After two years, the Technology and the Arts podcast comes to a close with this hour-long installment filled with memories, outtakes and other special moments from the series. It has been a good ride, but John and I felt it was time to “close the curtain” for a final time on this venture.

We still have more to say on the topics of technology and art, but we find ourselves with very limited time to do so in this format. Each of us will still have our FriendFeed profiles (see above) and we will continue to share information with the world that way.

Also, this blog will remain…and there is always the chance that we may post something — a blog or even a special podcast — at various points in the future. However, we decided that it was time to end the program before it suffers the fate of similar podcasts…one day, without explanation, it disappears.

We wanted to go out with something special and we feel this is worthy of a series finale.

Before we go, John and I would like to express our thanks to the guests we have had on the podcast since we first started doing this on December 13, 2006

And, finally, John and I would like to thank our listeners for the past two years. You made this all worthwhile.

And since it is that time of year, please have a safe and happy holiday season and wonderful new year!

Take care,
BK
