I have launched a new project called Sixty Second Tech.
Sixty Second Tech is the tech podcast for non tech people. Each weekly episode discusses a new technology, idea, or concept for one minute.
In the first few episodes we cover topics like:
- How to Find a Programmer
- Websites on the Cheap
…and of course, the episode that C.C. Chapman featured on his podcast, “Managing the Gray”, “Go Relevant or Go Home!“; the only SEO secret any web site owner needs to know.
I’ve been working with technology for 25 years now. (yes, I actually owned a VIC-20!) For most of those 25 years, I’ve been explaining technology, demystifying buzzwords, and correcting misconceptions to anyone who will listen. Sixty Second Tech came about because repeating the same explanation of a concept like OpenID individually to 50 different people just got old. (For my technical friends, the model just didn’t scale.)
Sixty Second Tech is the cure for BSS
Sixty Second Tech is the only known cure for “Blank Stare Syndrome” (BSS). BSS happens when one of your technical friends starts talking to you and unconsciously slips into geek speak. They don’t realize they’ve triggered BSS until long after your eyes glaze over. BSS is an embarrassing condition but a curable one, just spend one minute a week listening to Sixty Second Tech.
Of course no one is going to become an expert on a subject in sixty seconds. Each episode of Sixty Second Tech will however, spark your imagination and give you enough information so that you can decide if the concept is important to you.
It will soon be on iTunes but for now, you can subscribe to Sixty Second Tech via the Sixty Second Tech RSS feed,
Spread the news
I’m asking my (4) regular readers to help me spread the word.
Until next time,
