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, May 28, 2023, and this is show number 942.
This week, Chuck Joiner published an interview he did with me for his Road to Macstock series on MacVoices. He’s having many of the speakers on to describe what people can learn from the talk they will be giving.
The last time I spoke at Macstock, Chuck had me on for the same reason. But as I talked about my planned presentation (which was just weeks away at the time), Chuck pointed out that I didn’t sound all that excited about my topic. He was right! We noodled a bit and we came up with an idea that I was excited about. This caused havoc for the organizer, Mike Potter. The programs had already been printed!
So anyway, this year I decided not to tell Mike what I’m talking about until after I talked to Chuck. I thought the conversation was great fun even though Chuck wasn’t always keeping up with me. I put a link in the shownotes so you can listen or even watch the video at macvoices.com.
WWDC – Hang with the NosillaCastaways
WWDC is coming up really soon on Monday, June 5th at 10 AM Pacific Time. As is our tradition, Steve and I will be hanging out in the NosillaCast Live chatroom during the keynote so we can chat with the NosillaCastaways. We don’t broadcast video and we don’t impose our audio on anyone, it’s all chatting in text.
If you haven’t been to the live show before, the easiest way to find it is to go to podfeet.com/live. This will take you to a web page that has the embedded video (which will not be live) but also a window into the Discord channel where we’ll be chatting. If you want to go right to the Discord channel, I put a direct link in the shownotes to the live chat channel.
Hope you’ll join us to be amazed, disappointed, and have a laugh or two.
Good friend of the show, Frank Petrie wrote an op-ed recently on his blog YMP Now, where he suggests a different announcement from WWDC than anyone else is predicting. He had hoped to record it himself, but he’s a bit under the weather and asked if I would read it instead. I can’t hold a candle to Frank in imitating his style of delivery but I’m happy to bring his message to you as best I can.
So many people keep this show going through so many different ways. Whether you contribute by coming to the live show, or writing articles and making recordings for the audience, or whether you just post fun things in our Slack. They all keep the community lively and fun for everyone. I also really appreciate those who keep the show going financially because it does cost a fair bit of money to make this show work. If you can support the work by going to podfeet.com/patreon or podfeet.com/paypal, I’d really appreciate it.
That’s going to wind this up for this week. Did you know you can email me at [email protected] any time you like? If you have a question or a suggestion just send it on over.
