Ericast 234 - Early Computing Community!

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

"Back in the day," computer users built a community -- or, built multiple communities depending on their platform of choice.  Today, we can carry on the tradition by reminiscing about those computers and the communities they fostered.  It's circular, but in a totally good way!

Today, TRS-80 and Commodore lovers can live in harmony.  I love Chad's reference to Jim Butterfield, by the way.  Rest in peace, Jim.

Share your own computing or packrat stories (or a combination of the two) with a call to 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC).

By the way, I briefly mentioned three podcasters you should be listening to.  Those were Ray Edwards, Michael Hyatt and Hans Finzel.  In that order.  Then, put the Ericast fourth on your list.  I'll do a podcast on those guys sometime in the future -- they're great additions to your podcatcher subscriptions.  Throw Dan Miller in there, too, if you have lots of extra time -- his podcast is good but tends to run 45+ minutes a week and that adds up.


BONUS CONTEST:  Call in with the time-stamp of when you can hear my wife step out the front door (which is located right above Ericast Studio A) and win a fabulous prize.  I don't know what that prize will be, but since there's no fee for entering this non-contest I don't think I have to worry about disclosing that.  Closest time wins and in the event of a tie the winner will be chosen randomly, all rights reserved, contest void where prohibited by law, contents may have settled in shipping.
