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.

 

Something is coming…

What’s this? A post on the long-dormant Technology and the Arts blog? And it looks different…what’s up with that?

Well…John LeMasney and I have made plans early next week to record a special “TechArts” podcast, which will likely include a video component this time around. Because of that, I figured I would spruce the blog up a bit.

And there is a lot to discuss in the worlds of technology and art these days, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, you can always check out my current, interview-based podcast, Tandem With The Random.
