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 2012-06-04 Balticon 46: Social Media's Affect on Politics (Comment Line 240-949-2638)

    This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command ...

    This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast. There will be no podcasts after this one for two weeks as I will be abroad. If you miss me terribly, please do check out the current and upcoming interview series on the Living Proof brewcast. We managed to sit down with frequent guest here, Randy Chertkow, and catch up in much the way he and I have at Dragon*Cons past Due to the length of the feature, there is no new hacker word of the week this week. The feature this week is the only audio I recorded at Balticon 46 that I plan on sharing, for reasons I discuss briefly in the episode’s intro. The recording is the panel I was on about social media’s impact on politics. I want to thank Patrick Scaffido who I think did a yeoman’s job of moderating what turned out to be a fantastic conversation.
