TPN Roundtable 03-28-12 iTunes RSS Changes – Royalty Free Music

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSiTunes has changed up their RSS requirements due to the 3rd generation iPad resolutions. Now, you must have 1200×1200 album art, amongst other requirements added to the iTunes tag. Todd Cochrane talk about these new requirements and how you should update your album artwork ASAP. If you listen to podcasts or watch video shows, you probably hear the music in the background. You might be watching another show, and that same music shows up. This is most likely royalty free music – something you purchase to use for video content. It can enhance a podcast and bring a wall of sound, so the listeners enjoy your show a little more. Jeffrey Powers talks about some places you can go to get royalty free music, things to watch out for when you purchase a track, and how your can make your own music...

Guerrilla Marketing Geekazine Weekly Podcast, Day in Tech History – How to Do it?

In the last 72 hours, I have been asking “How do I Guerrilla Market the Geekazine Weekly Podcast and the Day in Tech History. I have been trying to figure out the best route without becoming annoying. How do I Guerrilla Market my Podcast? I started by small Twitters to sign up for Day in Tech History over at @dayintechhist. That helped, but I noticed @geekazine lose on it’s followers. Not a big deal because that number seems to fluctuate daily. The average website will say: If you want more listeners, then comment on other sites. That is a great idea, but I have also seen it turn ugly. One or two people start cutting you down because you are promoting your website. Things like “Who do you think you are” and “Great: another cross-poster”. Is Guerrilla Marketing of podcasts a good thing, or annoyance? You will always...

TSO: Twitter Search Optimization and how it can work like SEO 0

TSO: Twitter Search Optimization and how it can work like SEO

Most have heard of SEO – search engine optimization. It seems to be a common phrase nowadays. Every now and then I even hear ads on the radio that promote SEO because it is a viable thing for anybody’s website. The better it is searched, the more traffic that can come to it. However, there is another trend that has been creeping up. The same ideals, but this time In the microblog field. Something that could easily be known as TSO – or Twitter Search Optimization. Some practice this new ideal and others are even really good at it; but no matter what – if you are ignoring TSO, then you are ignoring a lot of new readers, listeners or viewers. Take a look at this 140 character statement: @geekazine #Twitter #network tool. We are a #blog #podcast and #news site. Check out the #website (#Geekazine) What...

Ramblings 3-28-09 – Getting Ready for Snow

The best part is this is the last snow of the season and hopefully it won’t be as bad as they say. Just wet slush. Just a small annoyance, then warm weather. Now on to some cool stuff. I stopped by SWAP – Surpluss with a Purpose the other day. Basically, it’s a shop that gets furniture, computers and other interesting stuff from the University and other government offices. They then refurb and resell. I was at the shop the other day and picked up a couple SATA hard drives for a few bucks. I went there looking for office chairs and couldn’t resist the deal. Didn’t get a chair though. Keeping my eye open for the right one. We have some cool stuff happening. The big news on Tuesday in which I cannot really talk about, but some other great news is that we are starting another...

Geekazine Podcast Ep. 1 on Internet Archive

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSFor a while I have been wondering what I should do with my old Podcasts – After all, they should be somewhere for access, but where? Today I decided to put up Episode 1 on the Internet Archive; a collective for archiving the World Wide Web. It’s not a be-all/end-all for where my older shows are going to go. For now I will still have the old Podcasts in the exact same area as before. However, it’s always good to have another spot if you want to check out how the show has progressed. For now I will be putting up the first few shows on the site. If you listen to the 1st show, you will notice it is called “The Show”. I didn’t have “Geekazine” just yet. It also contains the intro of my previous Podcast – “The Independant Music Podcast”....

We are back on the wagon, it was a tough WITH to produce because of this cough.Nonetheless, we found some great history and are reporting to you. December 16th 1988, Kevin Mitnick is charged for breaking into and stealing software from DEC. He also gained control of MCI codes in England and LA. Mitnick became a martr for some computer geeks as he bucked the system in ways people were unsuseptable to .  My personal favorite is how he got free pizza. Other events that happened this week – Suspenders were patented by Mark Twain. Microsoft stops supporting IE for the Mac. The Altair 8800 kit is first released, Symantec and Veritas merge and a lot more. Of course to get all the events, you’ll have to listen to the...
