Allison on Daily Tech News Show 2777

I had the great fun of being on the Daily Tech News Show this week with Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, and Roger Chang. The main topic was the energy impact of AI and whether it’s actually going badly or not. We get into the nuances of the way the data is collected and what can be done to avoid adverse impact to climate change. Check out Daily Tech News Show in your podcatcher of choice and look for DTNS 4777 Sustainable AI Computing. And of course there’s a link in the shownotes.

Let’s Talk Photography – Bart & Jill from the Northwoods

One of my favorite things is when friends of mine get together. Bart Busschots had Jill from the Northwoods on his show Let’s Talk Photography and it was delightful. Jill has been building her podcast empire in small steps (see what I did there?) and her latest show is called Buzz, Blossom and Squeak. This show is about getting off the couch and going outside and enjoying nature by learning about what’s around you. Bart has become a big fan, and has combined what she’s teaching with his daily walks and his love of photography. Two of my favorite people talking about their passions is the best thing ever. To hear Bart and Jill chatting, check out Let’s Talk Photography 128 at the link in the shownotes or subscribe to Let’s Talk Photography in your podcatcher of choice. Be sure to subscribe to Buzz, Blossom and Squeak too!

Macstock 2024

I’m getting super excited about Macstock for this year, and I have a special coupon for listeners. It’s a little earlier in the year this time: JULY 12, 13 & 14 in Woodstock, Illinois, just an hour outside of Chicago. On Friday there will be workshops where you get hands-on with an instructor. I’m doing one of the workshops where I’ll teach you as many of my Tiny Mac Tips as I can in 45 minutes. Then there are full-day sessions on Saturday and Sunday. I haven’t chosen my final topic yet but I know it will be fun and interesting.

The weekend pass is $299, and if you want to attend the workshops too, that’ll run you $399.

If you want to get $30 off your registration to Macstock 2024, use coupon code PODFEET (all capital letters). I’ll get $30 too if you use the coupon code so everyone wins.

If you’re interested in joining us, go to to learn more and sign up.

Support the Show

I was listening to Bodie Grimm and Robb Dunewood’s new podcast, Beyond the Post and they were talking about different ways podcasters can make money. One way is by sponsored shows, where someone pays you to say something (or blog something). I’ve probably never mentioned to you that I get requests like this all the time. Here’s an example, entitled Sponsored Post for Your Blog:

I’m reaching out because I would like to provide a quality post on your site and I had some ideas. I think your audience would positively love it. I’m reaching out to see if you’d be interested in featuring a sponsored post. I believe that I can add value to your audience, and I think it would resonate with your readers for sure.

Our content is always unique, relevant, informative, and interesting.

Does that sound like something I should do? Heck no, that would be dreadful. I never say yes to these requests or even respond to them. I could make money that way to offset the cost of creating these shows for you but I choose to rely on your generosity in donating to the show via Patreon and PayPal. If you can afford to do it, please go to or and help support the show.
