Good news

It is my pleasure to announce that the production audio engineer for LISTen, Michael J. Kellat, was re-elected tonight to the board of directors of the Guitar Society of Las Vegas for a one-year term. The next board of directors meeting will determine whether he remains an Events Director for the society.

As to the Consumer Electronics Show & LISTen...

This is the post I never wanted to write. I have to be upfront though. I failed.

The Consumer Electronics Show is starting Wednesday. The crew is located in the Las Vegas Valley. For the various locations in Paradise Township that CES will be occurring at, we're just a thirty minute drive away.

The only thing stopping us from getting in is the lack of a media badge. Supposedly this is the easiest event to get a badge for. LISTen could not be badged for this one.

Have an author you want us to interview?

With the start of a new year, I have to make a call for suggestions on authors to interview. A thread has been opened at the Erie Looking Productions site for this. Why there? Disqus lets me export comments to Comma Separated Values which I can then import into a spreadsheet program and create a tracker. Tracking down authors for interviews can sometimes be tricky which is why such a bit of case management is needed.

Some of our previous author interviews:
Piers Anthony
David Weber

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #53

One could blame it on the holidays. One might blame it on the news being slow. In the end, this episode is a brief one. Computer complications delayed the post to where it could not post on-time either.

How do you access LISNews?

I just want to throw out there a brief survey Survey closed as of 2037 UTC on December 16th as we have gotten more responses than viewable at our unpaid access level. The survey's purpose is to help ascertain how you reach LISNews most of the time. In light of the recent backslash issue, getting a feel as to whether people visit most through a feed reader or instead directly visiting the site makes a difference. When site software upgrades and/or changes happen knowing about such use patterns help with understanding how to serve the audience best. Questions are not specific to only the use of feed readers and also encompass questions concerning the podcast.
