Ep. 198 – The Book is Dead; Long Live the Book!

TOPIC:  Wondering about whether you should pull that paper mill investment out of your portfolio?  Eric Ginsberg of Bookswim comes on air to tell us why you just might want to hold onto your bookshelves for a little bit longer in a really great talk this morning.  You can also read the really great follow-up article on Slate – after listening to us, of course!

Jay Garmon then graces us with his inimitable presence, and unlike last week it all goes off without a hitch in this newest installment of geek trivia:

What famous, golden-age actress holds a patent for the underlying technology of wi-fi?

The talk with Eric is too interesting to break away from for long, but I do manage to sneak a quick ‘coolsite of the week’ in there too:

  • Product Manuals via Retrevo – Don’t have room for all those manuals for stereos, dishwashers, refrigerators, TV’s and so on?  Lost them in a fire (that somehow didn’t ruin all the products themselves)?  Check here for free downloads in PDF form of consumer products!

The podcast only song of the week this week is Intelligentactile 101 by Jesca Hoop!
