Bad Hair for Everyone!

Thursday, June 18, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named kadafi.jpgI'm starting a second series of podcasts about tech with Marshall Kirkpatrick of ReadWriteWeb. We're recording the first show tonight. You'll be able to listen live, but there will be no call-in. There will be a feed, of course.  Permalink to this paragraph

Every Thursday at 7PM, Murphy-willing. Permalink to this paragraph

We'll follow the model of RTN, the weekly podcast I do with Jay Rosen, but we plan to expand the cast beyond Marshall and myself. But the first show will be a duo. Permalink to this paragraph

The name of the show is BadHairDay. As I say in the teaser, that's every day for me. I'm pretty sure Marshall has good hair. So that balances things out. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph

Here's a list of things I'm interested in talking about in the first show (no way we'll get to it all): iPhone 3.0, tethering, netbooks, Twitter clones, backing up Twitter, Hackintosh, Google Wave, Any hope for Yahoo?, Opera Unite, desktop web servers. Permalink to this paragraph

Marshall has his own list. Permalink to this paragraph

We'll be doing the show on BlogTalkRadioPermalink to this paragraph

The website for the podcast is http://badhair.us/.  Permalink to this paragraph

The feed will be here (no shows yet): http://badhair.us/rss.xml.  Permalink to this paragraph
