A KERnel-copia of information!

That’s not the first and probably won’t be the last Thanksgiving reference you hit on the web in the next few days*.  It does sit in a sliver-sized union on the ‘Thanksgiving’ and ‘UNIX’ Holiday/Computer Reference Venn diagram I made.  Speaking of references, this week’s show ‘BROWSER WARS‘ is ripe for them.  For your sake, I am saving those all for the SHOW PAGE because Tom Gutnick is on the show this week talking BROWSER WARS on Sunday, November 28 at 5pm EST | 3pm MST.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in radio land and on the other side of the intertubes! See the previous sentence, this one, the blog post title and below titles that did not make the cut as examples how single exclamation points are where it’s at! Two is bit much and three is just trying too hard.

*Other blog post titles that did not make the cut:

  • This Week on IMI’s TurkeyTalk
  • A show you will gobble up!
  • Hey there, Pilgrim!
  • Listen up, Turkeys!
  • This week’s show is aMAIZEn!

DM us on Twitter @imitechtalk to let us know what you really think.

Lastly, if you are going to be in Brooklyn on Dec 11 or 12, Punching a Panda really relieves the stress.  If you made it this far, here are some articles to get you moving on your way now…

Ever feel like your floating in brand purgatory?  Not sure what your customers want or how they really feel about your products and services?

One good way to get a brand buzz? Surveys.  Find out more about using surveys on this week’s show with Chelsea Bucoy from Zoomerang on the SHOW PAGE to generate buzz for your brand.

Head’s up – Next week is our annual show with Keith Shaw from NetworkWorld.  Just in time for the holiday shopping season to start on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we’ll have Keith on to help you satisfy all those technophiles on your list …or make your own list of what you have to have this year.

And finally, we also wanted to let you know about:

Computer Outlook Talk Show Announces Foundation to Repurpose Computers to Under-Resourced Children and Families of Deployed Service Personnel

Non-Profit Outlook Foundation’s mission to repurpose cast away technology into the hands of those who need them most

Computer Outlook Talk Show announced the launch of the Outlook Foundation, a non-profit organization created to refurbish and repurpose computers; providing them to children whose economic background prevents them from having equal educational opportunities, as well as to deployed US service personnel and their stateside families in an effort to help maintain communication with loved ones. Beyond helping children and our service families, Outlook Foundation will also use its resources to reduce the amount of hazardous technology waste in landfills by recycling remaining technology through certified organizations.






Back to the Cloud

The show will air Sunday at 1pm EST.  Due to sports coverage on KFNX, you can catch us even earlier on Sunday.

Here at TechTalk, we not only talk about the cloud – we rely on it.  We use WordPress.com for our website, Google for our imitechtalk.com mail and a plethora of other services that rely on the cloud – Twitter, bit.ly and Flickr come to mind at first thought.  While the majority of this data is data we want you to see, we want to be sure it will be there and safe from other people trying to pass along information as us.  What does all of that rely on? Security.

This week, Tom is joined by Craig Balding who was our very first Cloud Computing guest.  Craig will let us know what is going on with service providers, how security models are evolving and a new project he is developing. Find out more on the SHOW PAGE.  Don’t forget that the show will be on at 1pm EST …also don’t forget that time goes back an hour everywhere except Arizona.

Don’t forget that Friday, November 5 is GrowSmart Biz conference at the Renaissance Washington DC with friends at the Washington Business Journal.  Be sure to tell Shashi Bellamkonda hello if you see him…or just tweet him.

Speaking of conferences, we have two shows coming soon – one from the FLASH conference and one from our time at Interop.  Tom also had the chance to attend CPM 2010 EAST this week AND GovTech in Brooklyn.  We’ll get those on for you soon.
