... or if you live in Sydney, feel free to come along and be part of the live studio audience.
If you're a geek, there's one Aussie podcast (vodcast actually -- though I hate that word) you should really be tuning into: Byteside
It's a talk-show style tech forum, hosted by veteran tech journos Séamus
Byrne (Launch Editor of Gizmodo
, Host of Fairfax’s Digital Life
), Ben Mansill (Launch Editor of both PC PowerPlay
), and Greg Moore
(former Time Out Sydney
Online Manager and live event producer).
It has great production values and I'll be representing APC on the show this week. If you live in Sydney and want to come along to be part of the studio/pub audience, you can RSVP here: http://byteside.com/byteside-live-audience-rsvp/
. If you're not able to make it, you can download the show as a podcast via iTunes
on Wednesday after the boys pull an all-nighter of intensive video editing.
For this show we’re covering:
The Tech Show – the Laptop Revolution
No other computing sector has seen such rapid and varied development
recently. From the emergence of the Netbook, to powerhouse desktop
replacements, both PC and Apple. With the spread of fast and reliable
wireless broadband, it’s now essential to make an informed decision
before your next upgrade. (I'll be on hand to discuss
The Game Show – First Person Shooters
It’s the cutting edge for gaming hardware evolution, and a big fat door
of open creativity for game design. Nothing pushes gaming forward like
the FPS, or delivers such intense excitement and immersive action. Where
is this key genre heading, what technology is around the corner to
enable incredible graphics and what new themes can the genre explore?
Panel guests will include: Dan Warne, APC (me!); David Hollingworth,
Atomic; Richie Young, GameArena; Jeremy ‘Junglist’ Ray, former host of
Good Game; Zara Baxter, PC Authority.
