A regularly published podcast by a self-described hacker, curmudgeon and hacktivist about the practice and profession of programming drawing on over a decade of professional experience and a lifetime spent hacking, the intersection of politics and society with technology and anything else clever, elegant or funny that catches my mind as a die hard technology geek.

    TCLP 2015-02-01 If It Sounds Right and My Site Has a POSSE

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. In ...

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. In this episode, I share another essay, this time also from the web site, on the the interplay of critical judgement and skill. Following up on a promise to myself towards the end of last year, I extemporize for the latter half of the show. I hope that by allowing myself to just speak with little or no preparation on a subject, I will make it easier to get more shows out in a given year. I decided the work I’ve done exploring this concept of POSSE, or Post Own Site and Syndicate Everywhere, would be interesting to discuss, in particular responding to some mild criticism and clarifying why I find what I have set up so useful. I wrote two posts covering more technical details of what I am using, here and here. You can view my lifestream category on this site, or the same category on my new site, to see how this is all working for me. I have to once again give Dave Slusher credit for getting my thinking about this idea and for sharing how he has implemented it. Once again, you can subscribe to the links I curate throughout the week from my own aggregator. More news, commentary, and alternate feeds available at http://thecommandline.net/.

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. In this episode, I interview Cory Doctorow about his latest book, “Information Doesn’t Want to be Free: Laws for the Internet Age.” If you are interested in learning more about the topics we discuss and that that book covers, you can also check out books by the scholars we mention: Lawrence Lessig, James Boyle and William Patry. I compared Cory’s book to “The Indie Band Survival Guide” the authors of which are friends of the show whom I have also interviewed. The audiobook version of the book is already available. Check Cory’s site, the free download and electronic editions should be available soon. You can grab the flac encoded audio from the Internet Archive.

    TCLP 2014-11-09 Touching Earth and Little Acorns

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. I ...

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. I spend some time discussing my current thoughts on my approach to the podcast, including more extemporaneous speaking, streamlining the recording of each episode, and stronger overlap in content between the podcast and the blog as my sense is that not many people necessarily follow both. I mentioned how you can still follow the news I read daily. You can subscribe to my RSS feed of interesting stories if you want or just follow me on Twitter. For the bulk of this episode, I provide some more context around two recent essays. I read “Touching Earth” about changes in my professional life. I read “Little Acorns” which I hope sheds light on my state of mind in the last year and some discusses some ways I hope to move forward.
