Nice roundup of technology podcasts:

Quote
Podcasts, Netcasts, call them what you want. Every geek out there should be listening to these things. Every single one of you. If ever you see a geek with earphones plugged into his/her ears, I guarantee you they are listening to the latest podcasts. It’s just something most geeks can’t live without. We thrive on the latest podcasts.

Now, I know there are still some people out there who haven’t listened to many podcasts, and I’ve been feeling a bit sorry for those people because they are missing out on so much. So, I’ve decided to make a list of my favorite podcasts so that new listeners can have some suggestions while sifting through the thousands of new podcasts each day.

Ridiculous. Not geeky at all.
All the revision 3 shows, and most of the other ones as well, while tech related, are not even close to geeky.

Ever since yuppies with money to play with electronics took over the word 'geeky' the threshold for what is considered 'geeky' has become lower and lower. When you get into the really geeky stuff, many of these shows (some of which depend on advertising) won't cover it because not enough people would care about it. If you're lucky they'll quickly and shallowly cover something mildly interesting, but nothing new to an actual geek.

However, it's still a nice list shows and podcasts. I just get frustrated that there isn't anything really geeky and fascinating that brings up really obscure stuff that an average (real) geek wouldn't actually know about yet.

Sad but true - and very well said. Thmbsup



I'm holding out for the adoption of cph (pronounced "siff") as in Certified Propeller-Head for the real deal techno-ninjas out there!

Reading this scares me and is partially the reason why I think the internet still doesn't produce the best guides for introducing newbies to any advanced stuff.

I mean Geekbrief and WebbAlert are more news sites so that I can understand and most of the other links fall into tech blog editorial territory but when programs such as Systm and Tekzilla that deal with tons of electronics and hacks that deal with voltages...man, it's terrifying how stupid I am.

I also find it ironic that anything Chris Pirillo isn't mentioned but maybe that could be seen as stating the obvious.
