Bad Hair Day at 7PM

Thursday, September 10, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named seriouslyBadHair.jpgWe're having a special Bad Hair Day podcast which is a mini-reprise of last night's meetup in Berkeley.  Permalink to this paragraph

Marshall is off tonight. I'll have two guests -- Doug Kaye of spokenword.org and Joseph Scott of Automattic.  Permalink to this paragraph

Doug is working on a podcast aggregator that supports rssCloud.  Permalink to this paragraph

Doug also founded IT Conversations that was a focal point in the podcasting bootstrap at the beginning of the decade. The Gillmor Gang got its start on Doug's network; we were inspired by his work. Permalink to this paragraph

Joseph developed the plugin for Wordpress that shipped at the beginning of the week. I haven't known Joseph a very long time, but we've already had a spectacular success, imho. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph
