NC #757 Ken Case, DTNS Appearance, Landing Zone, Moving Podfeet, Fixing Bart’s Audio Player

I’m super excited about this week’s Chit Chat Across the Pond guest, and I am almost as excited about being on Daily Tech News Show again. I’ve got one more interview from MacTech with Landing Zone about their cool docks. I moved podfeet.com from one hosting company to another with no disruption in service. And I fixed something for Bart on his website.

Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, November 10, 2019, and this is show number 757.

Chit Chat Across the Pond

This week’s Chit Chat Across the Pond is really special. It’s an interview with Ken Case, the CEO of Omnigroup. We don’t actually talk much about his current work, but rather start back with how he went to college when he was only 13 years old at the University of Washington.

He takes us on the fascinating journey of technology that led him to work for Steve Jobs’s NeXT computer company and how it changed his view of what computing could be. It’s a wonderful story filled with super-geeky details including bitnet (which I’d never heard of) and how he helped write the precursor to IRC.

You can listen in your podcatcher of choice in the Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite feed, or of course you can listen right at podfeet.com. I think you’re going to love it.

Support the Show

You know how in fancy pants movies they show highfalutin people being patrons of the arts? They pay for artists and musicians to make the world a more beautiful place. Well maybe you’re not highfalutin but you do want to help make the world a better place. Instead of a patron of the arts, how about becoming a patron of podcasts? You can support the NosillaCast and all of the other shows we produce here by joining Patreon.

It’s simple. You go to podfeet.com/patreon, create a login, and then pledge a weekly or monthly dollar amount you think you’d like to contribute. A lot of people contribute just a dollar a week which is great, but some fantastic people carve out even more. It’s relatively painless and really helps to keep the show going. If you can’t afford it, please don’t push that button. Seriously, don’t. But if you have the spare money and would like to be highfalutin, check out Patreon as a way to make that happen.
