Tech Pulse 20101027: Podcast News and Announcements

Listen to this episode! Subscribe to the MP3 feed via iTunes

Hey, Tech Pulse podcast listeners! Wow, it's so cool that you're still subscribed after almost three years without any new episodes. Just wanted to give you a brief update about the status of the podcast and a few other things.

First, as I recently blogged about here, there are two episodes from early 2008 that never got edited, but I've posted links to the unedited versions if you want to hear them. Basically what happened with Tech Pulse is that Big-O and I started MacMod:LIVE, the official podcast of MacMod.com, which was Anthony's old site for Mac modders. After that, Tech Pulse (which was a hobby, not a job) got put on the back burner. At the end of 2009, MacTech Magazine acquired MacMod. Big-O chose to focus his time and efforts on iPhone development, and I stayed on as the sole host and producer of the new show, MacTech Live.

I don't know when or if I'll get around to updating Tech Pulse, but you're more than welcome to stay subscribed to this podcast feed. I may eventually post some other stuff here as well (for example, I have some audio recordings of sessions at PodCamp AZ 2008 that I might post someday, or I may eventually do an interview that isn't relevant to MacTech but might have a more general tech appeal). For now, though, I'm focusing my podcasting energy on MacTech Live.

Also, I wanted to let you guys know that I'll be attending MacTech Conference next week, November 3rd through 5th, 2010, in Los Angeles. It's a technology conference for both IT professionals and developers with a focus on Apple's Mac OS X and iPhone/iPad platforms. If you're into Macs or other Apple technologies, you should definitely check out the details that I've posted on my personal blog, along with a link that will get you a free Apple certification or $100 off the conference registration price. All that is at http://bit.ly/MacTechConf – If you're interested in Apple technology and can make it to the conference, I'd love to meet you there.

That's it for now! Stay subscribed to the podcast, and check out my other podcasts at http://podcasts.thejoshmeister.com
