Jon asks starts by asking where everyone’s been travelling to over the summer.
K. Scott’s basically a European at this point.
Jon went to Oslo, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Redmond, and rural New Jersey, and Kevin survived a road trip with kids thanks to iPads. Jon really liked Buenos Aires. He talks about his Web Camps presentations in South America, including a Windows Azure Web Sites talk where he builds and deploys a classic ASP app via FTP, ASP.NET / SignalR app via Visual Studio Web Deploy, a Node.js app via git publish, and a WordPress site via WebMatrix deploy in one hour. He’s amazed by how translators can listen to obscure technical jargon and speak in another language at the same time, including prompts about when the audience should politely laugh at a failed joke.

e-book reading devices
Scott K has been running the CyanogenMod Android ROM on his Nook Color.
There’s some discussion on the benefit of a 7" form factor device and rumors about a 7-ish iDevice on the way.
Jon and Kevin love their Kindles, and Scott K talks about what he likes about the Nook Color.
Scott K mentions O’Reilly’s Bookworm site, which was sadly closed down as of March 31.
Jon has stayed with the Kindle eInk devices for the read aloud support, which is sadly missing on all the other top ebook devices. Kevin like the long battery life.
