David Pogue & BusinessWeek: Technology and You

These are my two of my favorite tech-podcasts. They are short (7-10 minutes) and always current and interesting. Sometimes they report on the same thing, but always in their own way.

David PogueDavid Pogue is a long-time Apple/Mac and Palm fan and as a rep of the New York Times, he was one of the very few to get an iPhone before release. This podcast is a “reading” of one of his columns, but I’ve found that it is more fun to listen to as he is very enthusiastic in his reading. (FYI: he is a big advocate of speech-to-text technology and he says he does not type very much, he talks to his computer, so I guess his real talking is just more interesting than the result of translating his talking to text for reading.)

Steve WildstromThe BusinessWeek podcast is done in an “interview” style wherean editor talks to Steve Wildstrom about a recent column and asks him questions to get him talking. Again, always current and interesting.

The Paths of Prospect Hill, Waltham (2002)

Prospect Hill MapThis is a handmade map of the paved roads and (most of) the unpaved paths on Prospect Hill that were available in 2001/2002. This was made by driving the roads and paths in my Jeep while toting a Palm V with a borrowed Magellan GPS Companion and running the Trax software (by Luke Klein-Berndt) and the tracing and aligning the maps in FreeHand on my Tangerine iBook. This collection is made up of probably two or three dozen small maps collected from about 10 drives. (Looking back from 2007, boy that technology looks old now!)

Seven-legged Sheep

Seven-legged sheepA seven legged lamb is pictured on its farm at Methven near Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand, Tuesday, July 31, 2007. Veterinarian Steve Williams said he believed a misprint in embryo formation had resulted in the lamb being born polydactyl, with many legs, a condition that occurs once in several million sheep.
