Blah Blah Blah — IT Conversations Podcast

While I was in Utah last month, Professor Phil Windley interviewed Doug Kaye and I for his Technometria podcast. You can listen to the podcast here.

We covered Amazon S3 and EC2, and then moved on to Doug’s new podcast processing architecture, which uses EC2, S3, and also SQS to support the entire Gigavox Lite system.

This podcast closed a pretty interesting loop for me. Way back in 2003, I was one of Doug’s first interview subjects. At that time the word I believe that podcast had yet to be invented, and people raised a skeptical eyebrow when he talked about recording and distributing interviews as MP3 files. Today, this is a very common use case and it is clear that Doug was way ahead of his time.
