Podcast Open Source Conversations

07/01/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Open Source, Podcasting

After a lot of editing, which entailed learning the open source audio editor, Audacity, we've finally published our first podcasts in the Open Source Conversations series. I wrote about Audacity previously in "Learing Audacity".

They stem from one conversation held at the Uptown Café among Clarise, Bernard Golden, and me, dealing with two topics:

We thought it was a good idea to just extend upon our conversations that we've had at the Uptown Café in the past, but the background noise was pretty bad. We sepnt a lot of time with Audacity working on that. There still is a lot of background noise, but I think you can follow the conversation without getting an headache. |-| We also want to thank Mike for the hack he did to b2evolution to provide a better enclosure format for the RSS2 feed. Mike, it works great - now we need hacks for RSSv0.92, RSSv1 [RDF] and Atom. &#59;)

I hope you enjoy conversations. More will follow; the adoption of Open Source software, and the commoditization of software products is becoming too important for either business or personal consumers to ignore.

Learning Audacity

06/16/05 | by JAdP | Categories: General Thoughts, Open Source, Podcasting

We've recently recorded a conversation in a café and we're now learning the open source software Audacity in an attempt to clean it up. It may not be the easiest listening, but we think our upcoming podcast(s) will be very interesting.

Audacity is a very powerful program, but there just doesn't seem to be any way to remove noise that is quantitatively similar to the signal [voices ordering coffee as noise, voices discussing open source as signal]. :-/

But that's OK. We're learning. And the one thing that I have learned about myself is that I enjoy learning, more than doing. That's why I made the move to information mangement from aerospace - quicker learning curve required, over and over again.


RSS Podcast Lifestyle

Apple is adding feed syndication podcatcher capability to iTunes. This served as a central theme for the return of the Gillmor Gang on May 28th. As a tangent to the converstaion, the Gang discussed the ability - or lack thereof - of the Apple iPod to take full advantage of RSSv1, RSSv2 and Atom feed syndication. Of course, the iPod has no OS/API/applications to do this.

"Looking at other implications of the iTunes announcement. Doesn't this also mean that with RSS, that the iPod is much further along in it's being the total multipurpose device? You know... What's to say that you wouldn't be able to, on the disk, have all the things that you might subscribe to via RSS, in that device and you might then plug into headphones or into a TV screen? Well..."end quotation

-- Steve Gillmor, Jon Udell, Dana Gardner, Mike Vizard, and Doc Searls, with guest Adam Curry and Executive Producer Doug Kaye Gillmor Gang Rides Again 33m:44s - 35m:06s

No doubt the iPod is great, but its main job is to play m4p files. If you want the ability to grab your feeds no matter the media, how about the Palm Lifedrive or one of these from the Daily Wireless article "WiFi MP3 Players". So, forget the iPod and get a machine that let's you get to all your feeds, podcast, songs, blogs, vlogs, news, and whatever comes next.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
