Tod Maffin via email: "CBC Radio, Canada's public broadcaster, is developing a weekly on-air program about the blogosphere and podcast community, using the voices of audio bloggers and podcasters. CBC has commissioned Tod Maffin to host and produce the show; a pilot is currently in production (not all pilots make it to air)." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Now I'm really spooked. My name is on the tag for the London blogger's dinner on June 7. I'm so confused.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Seems it should be pronounced blogga's dinnuh, a la James Mason. I guess then you'd 'ave to be listening to me bluggcasts wit Kosso. Wanka! And I've just watched both Bridget Jones movies (the first is much betta) so I don't feel that bad about being a Yank tawkin lawk a Bwit.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Also watched Quentin Taratino's first movie, Reservoir Dogs. Not nearly so good as Pulp Fiction or the two Kill Bills.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named jamesMason.jpgHad breakfast with Greg Del Sesto, a Boston-area investment banka who uses The Brain, and doesn't read this blog but does listen to all my podcasts. Had some interesting things to say. Took issue with my thought that quality is meaningless. He asked a probing question that revealed he had a point. Does quality matter when you're having surgery. He kept talking. I interrupted and said Yes yes indeed it surely does matta. It doesn't mean I don't love your inner child if I require you to have a medical degree and several years of internship before I let you crack open my chest and cut me up. Same with flying me home after a holiday in Cambridge. Yes quality does matter. I promised to do a podcast about this and I shall keep that promise. Remind me to talk about continuous functions and the Fundamental Theorum of Calculus. Knew I'd sneak that in there, didn't you? Wanka.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Here's the full MP3 of the Monday night radio show in Boston. (Their server appears to be really slow. Once I have it downloaded, I'll mirror it on one of mine. Postscript: I haven't been able to download it after trying for five hours.) Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Wired: Nokia Draws Bead on IPod PeoplePermanent link to this item in the archive.

Bob Stepno rounds up Deep Throat news. He says that Bob Woodward, who still writes for the Washington Post, will file a story on Thursday. Wouldn't it be great if he did a podcast too? I'd love to listen to his story in his own words, in his own voice. That would be one for posterity. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Michael Gartenberg: "If Watergate were happening today..." Permanent link to this item in the archive.
