Apple – Boot Camp

It’s been interesting to follow the Windows on Mac talk on all the boards and blogs. Even the quote by John C Dvorak on Apple moving to Windows as an OS.

But I really wasn’t ready for this:

The Bandwidth of Information

Working with various organizations, it has been my constant frustration that I don’t always seem to get my bosses to ‘understand’ what I believe to be important.

I had a very smart person commented to me a year ago that it is not really my bosses job to understand, its mine. I have been trying for a year to internalize that thought.

Conversations Network

The audio network previously know as IT Conversations has now branched out to become The Conversations Network.

This expands the network beyond the IT-centric area. I always thought there were sessions of general interest anyway but this does underline the point.

The new mission – “The Conversations Network captures presentations, processes the recordings, and publishes them online for free under Creative Commons licenses.” will hopefully bring even more excellent content to an MP3 device near you.
