My April 2006 podcast is up

Now I have a comedy archive on this site, so you can just see the comedy skit rather than all the dated computer info.
It's at

The skit this time is called "Jobs, Hobbes, or Corn on the Cobs". The game involves telling the difference between Steve Jobs (founder of Apple), Hobbes (beloved cartoon tiger from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes), or Corn on the Cobs (a starchy side dish no barbeque should be without). Believe it or not, it's a lot harder to tell the difference between the three than you might think. The moderator has new tricks up his sleeve to make the game almost impossible.

It's still amateurish, but we'll improving. We now have two cameras to use and may be trying green screen technology in a couple of months.

I'm on the left, John Squirek is in the middle, Patrick McEvoy is on the right. Mary Ginsburg is off camera.

You can watch it on the web even without an iPod. We talk about computers and events at NYPC. We have a nice presentation about cell phones too. This one lasts 34 minutes and 16 seconds in total.

The full podcast is on

Enjoy and when critiquing, please be kind. I already know it needs lots and lots of work to be acceptable :)
