How I Zinged Glark
A conversation about podcasting:
OMAR: I was thinking we could talk about ads if that's not too out there and boring. What with the Twitter ad stuff.
GLARK: It is. It's NPR interesting. It's in fact NOT interesting. You can quote me on that. To NPR
OMAR: NPR interesting is proven to be 15 percent more interesting than most podcasts.
GLARK: When you do a segment on me. No doubt.
OMAR: You kinda blow the curve.
GLARK: I know.
OMAR: for MONEY. ZING!

More iPad than you may want or need
Photos by Jay Janner, Austin American-Statesman
Last week was Week of the iPad and even without an NPR segment, it feels now like that's all I talked about recently. At length.
First, I was working last week on setting up photos and finishing up a story about Central Texas folks who had bought iPads on launch day. You can see four of the photos above; I think they turned out great, but setting it all up was a lengthy process.
The comments on the story, very "Get off my lawn and take yer gotdang iPad with you!" are very fun to read.
There was also a video:
Then I did a live chat on the iPad and a full write-up myself based on having an iPad in our house since Saturday.
Lastly, Glark and I did a very lengthy podcast on Age of Lasers about our impressions of the iPad, apps and the just-announced iPod 4.0 update.
Pretty much, I'm iPadded out.
