Technology and the Arts – Episode 54 (11.02.2012) features a statement on post-tropical cyclone Sandy and its devastating impacts on the mid-Atlantic and northeast regions of the United States, followed by lightly edited audio from a live Google+ Hangouts On AIr that John LeMasney and I conducted on September 24, 2012. In this installment, John shares his experience of a night of stargazing at Princeton University’s Peyton Observatory, while Brian shares his thoughts on seeing Peter Gabriel in concert in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the release of his classic album, So. John and Brian then discuss the Apple Maps app debacle…and a whole lot more. File size: 13.1 MB. Time: 51 min., 53 sec. Hosts: Brian Kelley and John LeMasney.
Here is the edited version of the 2012 season finale of Technology and the Arts with Brian Kelley and John LeMasney. John and I had to move our live chat up a day. Also, it threw off our planned chat with blogger/writer/podcaster Richard J. Anderson, who was able to get his hands on a Microsoft Surface a few days ago so we wanted to get his first impressions. However, after John and I did our live show/recording, I was able to get a brief chat worked out with Richard, which I—somewhat awkwardly—spliced into this edited version of the episode.
Anyway, here are some quick links to things mentioned during the show…
- While talking about Hurricane Sandy, Brian brought up this cool U.S. wind map.
- Brian also shared a Huffington Post article on how music and technology might be able to predict the outcome of the U.S. presidential election, and a Gizmodo post sharing the first photograph ever taken from space…from a Nazi-built V-2 rocket in 1946.
- Richard J. Anderson, who blogs at sanspoint.com and is one of the hosts of the Crush On Radio podcast, joined Brian for a bit to talk about his brief, hands-on experience with the new Microsoft Surface tablet.
