I have to give a mention to a couple of people who have fired me up to get more involved ‘blogging about tech’. I’ve been using PCs since 1988 and have been on the web since 1998. Spent some time on a couple of good UK PC forums, but it was only when I discovered tech podcasts that I started to develop a real interest in tech. The first podcast I found was the Mike Tech Show which is great because I’m really interested in PC tips, tricks and troubleshooting. I’ve been through the complete MTS archive and learned a lot from that. In the course of listening to those archives I came across a promo for The Knightcast, another great tech podcast with a fine host, Knightwise, and brilliant music.
Knightwise is Belgian so a bit closer to home for me. In 2006/2007, he did a spell as co-host with Dave Gray, Tim Smith and Keith Murray on the Global Geek Podcast, yet another superb podcast which then added Cait as co-host and has recently transformed into the Aussie Geek Podcast. This one is also a must-listen.
I listen to about 20 podcasts a week but these three have held my interest right from the start. For anyone interested in ‘how to tune technology into your everyday life and let tech work for you‘ as Knightwise would say, I can highly recommend these three tech podcasts.
I’m sure I’ll talk more about them all in future posts. I’ll also give a complete list of all the podcasts I listen to later.
