Scripting News for 5/9/2006

I did a podcast with Dan Farber while I was at CNET today. 

Dan MacT explains problems we had on the SYO server.  

Movie: I did a walk-through of the conference facilities at CNET that we will be using for BloggerCon IV. It’s very high-tech space, with room for about 100 participants. Great net connectivity so we should get a good webcast going.

Today’s song: “Put your hand on your mouth when you cough that’ll help the solution.” 

Phillip Torrone is sharing his OPML. 🙂 

Staci Kramer reports on AIM Pages from AOL.  

NY Times: “Warner Brothers plans to announce today that it will make hundreds of movies and television shows available for purchase over the Internet using BitTorrent software.” 

Chris Pirillo announces that some guy with a grey beard is going to lead a discussion at Gnomedex in June. 🙂 

Don Park: “You are looking down the barrel of my mental or emotional shotgun.” 

Vote here to ask Turner Classic Movies to release one of my favorite movies on DVD.  

SmithAtlanta works at Turner, and manages the website I just pointed to. He’s a Scripting News reader, of course. 🙂 

Stowe Boyd suggests that you “randomly drop 20% of your RSS feeds every month.” 

Amyloo: “Blogosphere coverage of Share Your OPML looks overwhelmingly positive.” 

How does Ze Frank do it? He’s travelling in Europe and doing these funny shows mit de European agzends. It seems he must have people doing the production work. How could one person do so much?

    It’s funny that you mentioned TCM today. I work on the software that tracks the TCM tapes and digital media at Turner. It’s funny that I know exactly where “Overview for The Hollywood Revue of 1929” is located in the library. 🙂 I’ll try to see if I can get that bumped up the chain for you.


  2. Talk about being prolific. Seriously, how does Ze do it? But I’m just glad he does!


  3. It would be interesting to know how long it takes Ze to edit each show, on average. I agree, it seems like it would be incredibly time-consuming, but I imagine he must have it down to an art by now.


  4. damn i wish i had connections like that ;p

    i’m imagining the openning hacker-game sequence of Hackers with tape-changer robots flying around…


  5. Dave you’ve made a lot of great reccomendations but Ze Frank is at the top of my list. Good karma on that one. I’d like to respectfully submit a possible link/site for you to consider This is a site for free Audio books deliverd in a podcast subscription type system. It even uses RSS technology!

    Check it out and….
