Ep. 247 – NYT Tech Writer Nick Bilton

TOPIC:     Mike fights through a bad headcold to bring an excellent show to your ears – thanks mostly to his guests of course!  Lead technology writer for the New York Times and author of the book “I Live in the Future & Here’s How it Works” Nick Bilton comes on for a solid half hour of cerebral social networking discussion, and we have Scott Andraschko, Director of IT for the Round Lake Area Schools as a special guest chiming in with some great insights too!

As if that wasn’t enough, we bring in regular Jay “Encyclopedia” Garmonica with another awesome geek trivia of the week:

What celebrity owned the GMail.com domain name in 2004, when Google purchased it for their mail service?

Nick provides a few great coolsites of the week, plus have time for one of our own too:

  • TaskRabbit – Per Nick Bilton: Real people taking care of the tasks you don’t want to!  Pay per job and find qualified safe help through Task Rabbit.
  • FancyHands – Per Nick Bilton: Ever thought you might need a personal assistant?  Here’s an easy (and relatively cheap) way to get one today!  Research, rescheduling meetings, phone calls and letters … all for one set price per month!
  • FaxDesk – Still faxing? But no fax machine?  FaxDesk offers instant fax to email and email to fax services with one-off or permanent numbers.

The podcast only song of the week this week is “Je Veux te Voir” by Yelle.
