Multi Me-dia: An Interview and a Radio Show

Posted Monday, February 23, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, I sat down in San Francisco's Washington Square for a video interview to talk about iPhoto '09 and iMovie '09 with my friend Frederick Johnson, who used to work on the iLife team at Apple and is now a photographer, video blogger, and senior marketing manager at Data Robotics, makers of the way-cool Drobo.

You can watch the interview at Frederick's site.

If that isn't enough me: Last Wednesday, I hosted a call-in computer radio show whose subject was the growing number of Web sites that let you sell hand-made art objects or publish your own books. (Think iPhoto books, but with the ability to sell them on your own free storefront.)

The main subjects of the show were Etsy (for buying and selling hand-made artwork and the like); and Lulu, an amazing site that lets you self-publish everything from books to films to audio CDs. I talked with representatives from both companies.

If you make your own art and you'd like to sell it online -- or if you dream of self-publishing your own book -- you can download an archive of the show (11MB MP3 file).

And that's enough of me for today.
