Lunch Time Science is returning

Blog Catagories: 

Right, the next step in getting things back on track, Angry Beanie wise is rebooting the #lunchtimescience daily updates and the podcast that will be attached to it.

So starting next Monday, #lunchtimescience will return and I'm already on the hunt for the first scientist to profile for the show.

For Science!

First PETW in over two years!

So tomorrow night I'm going to be conducting my first interview for Purser Explores The World in over two years, wootness!

And even more awesome it's going to be with New York based photographer Chris Arnade who has been documenting the stories of people battling addiction and poverty in the New York neighbourhood of the South Bronx via the Faces of Addiction project.

Rethreading the Beanie

Blog Catagories: 

So there hasn't been any activity over at (actual podcast wise) since October last year.

I keep meaning to reboot things but I never quite get around to it and I've been thinking about why.

I think it boils down to two problems:

Firstly, I suffer from "Been there done that itis", that is once I've done something I tend to start looking around for the next challenge.

Secondly I suffer from a severe case of "creators block".

Dang, been a while

Blog Catagories: 

Wow, just checked and it has been a while since I last posted here.

Time for another catchup.

Firstly, if you don't know already, I am now employed fulltime as a developer with Catalyst-AU (the Australian branch of New Zealand based CatalystIT). This means of course that Collaborynth is going into hibernation for now.

Now available for Parties, MobileFOSS and Angry Beanie

So my time with the Sydney Institute of TAFE has come to an end, meaning that I am now available for parties and weddings.

In MobileFOSS news, I'm going to be putting up the first draft of the schedule later on today. You'll notice a few blank spots, they're waiting to be filled by people with awesome mobile talks. Is that you?

Angry Beanie Radio, now almost like a real radio station

Blog Catagories: 

A while back I wrote up a description of the streaming setup that I was building for Angry Beanie Radio. It was designed so that I could play both pre-recorded and live content, including live interviews conducted via Skype. However it lacked a bit when it came to the ability to run a "real radio station". By real of course I mean the ability to have a continuous stream running, edit playlists on the run and mix live shows with pre-recorded content (switching between two different streams).

Actually released a Purser Explores The World Episode

Blog Catagories: 

Yup, I actually released a new episode of Purser Explores The World.

This time I'm looking at community power initiatives.

Enjoy and share it around.

Angry Beanie and a Collaborynth Update

Blog Catagories: 


Forgot to post about the Angry Beanie Rant at the beginning of the week, so here it is:

"Politicians do the same old dance on asylum seekers, the Queensland LNP "review" civil unions into the dirt, US Teacher goes full Klingon and the US Olympic ctte takes on the yarnists of the world"

Also, a bit of a Collaborynth Update. My time with the Local Government and Shires Associations NSW are coming to an end, written more here:

New Episode of Purser Explores The World is out - Printing Your New Life

Blog Catagories: 

Just as 3D printing is changing the way we look at manufacturing, it's changing the way medicine approaches different problems.

In this episode I talk to Scott Summit from Bespoke Innovations about the work his company does  with artificial limbs and I have a look at some of the other ways that 3D Printing is changing the way the medical world turns.
