Interview with John Sundman

John Sundman is a heck of an interesting person. He’s been around the technology circuit from the Old Days (we’re peers in the chronological sense) but he also writes damn good fiction, some of which (Cheap Complex Devices [my review][sf site][goodreads]) is pretty sublime.

So how does a talented writer make a living in the Webby world? He and I have a long conversation about that and many other things.

Radio Berkman is a Top 9 tech podcast, according to Verge

I’m a little bit proud that Radio Berkman is on The Verge’s list of top 9 technology podcasts.

Radio Berkman is produced by Daniel Dennis Jones (twitter: blanket) who does a fabulous job and deserves the credit for this. The podcasts are generally 20-30 mins, although they go longer when it makes sense to. Generally they are interviews with people passing through the Center. (I am the interviewer in many of them.)

Yay for Radio Berkman!

[lodlam] Corey Harper on designing LOD with users in mind

I videoed the opening of a session (liveblogged here) at LODLAM about trying to get past thinking about Linked Data as a way of stitching together resources, and instead trying to address user needs. Corey Harper led the session. Here are his opening remarks, recorded with his permission but in very low lighting that makes it look furtive.
