The format of SquawkBox is changing friends. I’ll be discontinuing the regular recording of SquawkBox on Friday of this week. The reason is simply that SquawkBox takes a huge effort to do well, and if I can’t do a good job of it, I don’t want to do it at all.
Expect to see the SquawkBox on an intermittent basis from now on. I’m taking my cue from the eminence grise of multi-party podcasting, Steve Gillmor, who doesn’t necessarily record the Gillmor Gang every day either. As news stories appear, or interesting technology developments occur, we’ll do a show. The show is also always open to guest hosters, and I’m hoping that folks like Carl Ford continue to do their weekly segments.
When I first began recording the SquawkBox it was more as an experiment than anything else, for iotum to learn how a podcaster might use Calliflower to create content. We’ve learned a huge amount. It’s been a terrific experience, Calliflower has improved dramatically as a conference calling service, and I’ve met many interesting people as part of it.
Thank you all for tuning in and participating over these many months.
