I love the way the show is going so-far. My only hope is that as it grows you can find more and more content, and maybe get a bigger crew of co-hosts, to really make it the stand-up tech variety show that the world is missing.

Bravo so-far. Keep going where you're going, and don't stoop to pander like AoTS did, and you should be good.

Don't worry 25% of us will whine about the next set, too!

The segments were much better and the reviews were good. Thank you for allowing the director of the education museum and Pat to sit and talk. the guy was very engaging and made the segment much better. i thought this was a much better effort on the second episode, but i am still unsure what to expect when i watch. i know i will probably get product reviews and maybe a tutorial, but despite the fact that i liked the history lesson and tour i had no idea it was coming. It felt kind of strange. still good, just out of place. the martin segment was ok and i like webdrifter but that was a commercial for your program. it was an entirely too looonnng commercial. Yah yah yah webdrifter blah blah, we get it. we have all seen it, move along. we'll watch it when you post it we promise, now get back to the show content. if you keep refining this show i think it will turn out really good. as of right now it's ok. not great yet. i have to say though that i still miss indigital. there was just something about that show that it just hit the mark, across the board. i don't know what it was and i can't put my finger on it but it was just honest about the products and themselves. anyway the second show was a definite improvement over the first.
If I can't break it, it can't be broken!

Default Topic suggestions

You know, I came into this forum expecting to read suggestions for show segments. But nope. Everybody here seems to think they're Sumner Redstone. I suppose you guys will figure out the audio/video/set/banter ratio/review style stuff on your own and don't really need much input from the vapid masses out here . . . especially since you get so much of that unsolicited.

OK, I like the show so far. Here are some things I'd love to see you guys do:

- A segment on the reports of aluminum iMac crashing problems. Mine's doing it. I'd love to hear some more news about it.
- A segment on the new space industry. There's a ton of stuff going on in the non-governmental commercial space industry, and much of it is in California. Something about the teams doing the X-Prize lunar challenge, or the lunar lander challenge? Anything on some of the new commercial companies like XSpace, Masten space, Armadillo Aerospace (you know, John Carmack's space company!), Blue Origin (Jeff Bezos space company), Space Adventures (the company that puts people on the international space station via Soyuz launches). Any of these would be great tech stories.
- A segment on the state of AI research. Things have been moving in this area. I'd love to hear an interview with a Berkeley or UCLA professor on what's happening in AI these days.
- Maybe a segment on Green technology, like replacement LED lights, building your own solar powered yard lighting system, installing a home wind turbine, the features of some of those power monitors that show you how much juice an appliance uses over time. Stuff like that.
- What is up with the Segway these days?
- The tech of off-road racing. I know Patrick does this stuff. I'd love to hear about how those vehicles are built, some of the tech and monitoring they use, etc.
- Any info about the amateur robotics hobby world. I know there is a lot of stuff going on, from engineering department contests, to remote controlled fighting robots. For example, I heard about Carnegie Mellon working on an lunar prospector robot. Or a story about wearable power-assistant exo-skeletons made by the Kanagawa Institute.
- Info about any of the newest distributed computing projects that I may want to get my home PC involved in (a la Folding at Home, or SETI at home)
- A rundown of the electric cars that will soon be available for sale
- Maybe an overview of the newest car gadgets that are being sold (camera systems, theater systems, sensors, navigation systems)
- HD content status? How many HD channels on each of the cable and satellite providers? Status of downloadable HD from iTunes, NBC, ABC, Fox, Revision3? Where is SciFi network's HD offering??
- Home automation for the tinkerer: X10? INSTEON modules? That Indigo program for the Mac.
- The tech of reef aquariums. Trust me . . . those guys LOVE to talk about all the tech they're using to monitor and automate their setups. And a lot of them are located in California and would love to show a tech crew their massive setups. (Check out the Reef Aquarium Guide or ReefCentral. I don't have one of these setups, but I admire those who do...)

Anyway. Keep up the good work. I'd love to see one or many of these topics shown and discussed on your show. The photos on your museum visit were a great addition to an already very entertaining and informative interview. Similar 'news magazine' type segments would certainly get *me* to watch every episode.

for the DIY segments, i'd like to see them alittle more in depth. So far they just are "here you go, enjoy." I thought with internet shows you wouldn't have to be regulated on segment time.

A DIY headphone amp segment would be cool.

Default GO BIGGER & L o n g e r

It would be cool if the show were more like the original Screen Savers, They used to fill an hour & half a day. Why not an hour & half a week?

How about some of Yoshi's mad mods?

Get Leo & other TSS alumni to stop by once in awhile.

Also how about some Small Quicktime love on the iTunes?
