Episode 1: “Hello World” Edition

We’re starting up a technology round table podcast. By we, I mean:

Our goal here is to provide you with some interesting discussions loosely centered around the world of development on the Microsoft platform. We’ve just finished our first show, and – while we’re aware that it’s not ready for prime-time, we’re looking for some alpha testers to give it a listen and give us some feedback.

Let’s start with our four known issues:

  1. It’s way too long – I edited this down to one hour, but our goal is to keep these in the 1/2 hour range.
  2. Audio levels – My voice is quieter than everyone else’s. Maybe that’s a good thing.
  3. We’re just getting used to the format – None of us has done a podcast before. I’ve edited out several awkward pauses and the like, but it’s not at all polished just yet.
  4. No branding – We’ll probably come up with some kind of catchy name, set up a website, and maybe include a 2 second musical bumper at the beginning. And maybe get a blimp and a mascot. But that’s all later.

So, you’re warned. Want to alpha test it and give us some feedback?
