LISTen: An Program -- Episode #166

Even though the audio of this episode has the numbering royally screwed up, an interesting look is presented. This is a how-we-did-it sort of episode. As stated in the episode itself: "Consider this a sort of medium-sized Tech for Techies that comes with a side order of curly french fries and a fountain drink."

LISTen: An Program -- Episode #165

This week's episode contains a book review of a Jim Butcher novel, a reflection on technological change, and a look at the 10th anniversary of 11 September 2011.

Programming Advisory


Erie Looking Productions will not release new programming this weekend in light of Hurricane Irene's impending approach to the eastern coast of North America.

The potential for systems disruption impacting such a large portion of the United States population is something we must bear in mind. We remember the lessons of the 2003 regional outage that included us in an outage area that encompassed much of the northeastern United States as well as a major portion of the Province of Ontario. In light of recent local electricity reliability issues, we are preparing for the possibility of outages impacting us.

New episodes of LISTen: An Program and Ubuntu Ohio – Burning Circle are tentatively scheduled for release on September 5th, 2011.
