While we may be back at full physical speed, our minds stay in the idiot corner. We talk about conferences we aren’t presenting at, we look at shows we haven’t seen, and ultimately make a total mess out of our own what’s cools and final thoughts. Luckily we have a great set of listener tags to talk about. Don’t forget only 8 more shows until episode 200! So, sit back, adjust your lanyrd, and enjoy the show.
The Michael’s are out of control without Andy to keep us sane. We decide to record the show at our favorite coffee shop this week – Bean Traders, and have a blast with an incredibly mutated set of links. Thank you Professor Kliq for our musical interlude the song – My Advice (Introduction), and licensed under creative commons. Come check us out!
We end the year with some bitter news, and we need your help to move into 2011. Delicious, our site of choice for getting your tags, is being shut down by Yahoo! How do you want us to get your input for the show? Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on the blog. Should we use an open Google Doc? Should we use Twitter Hashtags? Should we use the Facebook? Should we use Google Buzz? Or do you have an idea? We hope everyone has a great year end, and we will be back with a new episode Recorded January 7th, 2011.
BIG NEWS Yahoo are idiots – so 2011 likely to be a different format! What options are there? mag.nol.ia went away. xmarks nearly died this year. curated.by is a new contender. Google Bookmarks? billsweeney1 contributed the xmarks and techcrunch tags RIP delicious
As we get closer to Festivus, the guys continue to drive thru a hodgepodge of new tags, and welcome a few new taggers this week. We thank MikeTheBee for his nice shout outs this week, while Andy gets excited about the upcoming Home Camp 3 in London next week. Don’t forget to keep the suggestions coming for episode 200. So sit back, pour yourself a glass of eggnog and enjoy the show. (Do people still drink eggnog?)
While we change a bit of the show behind the scenes, we continue to have a great set of listener tags this week. We have American Express getting into virtual goods, we get into recursion with 3D printers that can replicate themselves (almost), we talk about ludicrous legal precedent with the word Face ™, and we think about the upcoming release of the movie TRON. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
