The LQ Radio Interview Series Returns

I’m happy to announce that the LQ Radio Interview has finally returned. I’d like to thank Ilan and Orv of SCALE for being guests on the show. We covered a good amount of ground in 30 minutes. We used Gizmo to do the show and overall I’m happy with the audio quality. I have a few tweaks to make for future shows, but nothing major. More interviews will be on the way soon.

LQ Radio ogg RSS Feed

A quick update on the LQ Radio ogg RSS feed. From day one we have supported ogg at LQ Radio. In fact, every audio release we've ever done has been released in both mp3 and ogg format. That being said, the RSS feed for podcatchers only offered the enclosure in mp3 format. About two weeks ago we started offering an ogg feed in addition to the mp3 feed. In that two weeks, a full 5% of subscribers have moved over. If you're subscribed to the mp3 feed and are able to use ogg, I'd encourage you to move over to the unencumbered format at your leisure. To clarify, we are committed to supporting both formats long term.

LinuxQuestions.org is a Sponsor of the Upcoming OSBC

As I announced first on the LQ Podcast, LQ is a sponsor of the upcoming OSBC. The Open Source Business Conference is brought to you by IDG, which also puts on the LinuxWorld Expo. The OSBC is in San Fransisco on Fed 14-15. I haven't bought my plane ticket yet, but I do hope to attend the conference. If any of my blog readers will be going and want to touch base, do drop me a line.

LQ Radio Interview #4 – Doc Searls

Just interviewed Doc Searls for LQ Radio. Fairly informal, which is one thing I like about LQ radio and overall I think it's an interesting interview. We coved a variety of topics including recent OSCON and LinuxWorld trips, Cluetrain, Google, splogs, RSS, Linux Trademarks and more. More than a couple times the discussion lead into a direction that I had written down in my outline. Total running time is 1:27. Take a listen and let me know what you think.

LQ Radio Episode #2

Got back on track and recorded another episode of the LQ Radio Show last night. Once again we had some minor Skype problems, but overall I think the audio quality is much improved over episode #1. The moral of the story here though I think is that if we want real quality we are going to have to invest in a hybrid (Doug Kaye told me this already, though). You may notice that the episode ends a bit abruptly. In fact, Skype hung up as we were wrapping up the show. We had a ton to talk about and I wanted to keep the show less than 90 minutes, so you can expect a follow up show real soon now. Thanks goes to dave, john and fin for being on the show. Note that on the show we took LQ Bookmarks out of beta.

Mark Cuban on Podcasting

Mark Cuban has some interesting things to say about Podcasting for business sake. He's a smart guy. What does he know about streaming over the Internet you ask? Well, he did sell broadcast.com to Yahoo! for about 5.7 Billion, so I'd say he knows a little. I'm glad we didn't start the LQ Podcasts with the sole goal of bringing in cash. I'd hate to be looking for a viable revenue model for that (and especially if it was that, in a vacuum). We started it to further the LQ goals – helping people with Open Source and Linux.

Next LQ Radio Show

It looks like the next episode of LQ Radio is a go. Should be myself along with John, Dave and Christian. The delay between the last show and this one was a little longer than I would have liked, but we're back on track now and I am really looking forward to the show. We are going to finalize what we'll be talking about tomorrow, so if there is anything you'd like to see discussed let us know. Thanks for listening (and don't forget about the LQ Podcasts).
