Tech tAUk October 23, 2010 – Musical Tech Edition

Tech tAUk returns to the studio for this week’s special “Family Weekend” episode. Douglas and Josh invite their moms on for a segment to discuss the generation gap in technology and the many ways in which our tech-focused environment has changed since that of a few decades ago. Josh also explores the world of musical tech and demos autotuning in GarageBand, and Douglas demonstrates Quicksilver, a multi-purpose utility for the Mac.

Our headlines this week:

We had a number of viral videos on this week’s episode, including:

Finally, we close out the show by previewing next week’s exclusive pre-rally coverage from the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

Note: Unfortunately the YouTube video is missing the fifth segment of this episode.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
