We're Making Some Changes...
Systm was the first show launched by Revision3 and it won't be the last. Going forward, Systm will no longer be a weekly long format show. It will morph into regular, if shorter, hands on segments that will live inside Tekzilla.
I've made a lot of television in the last decade and gotten to work with a lot of fun people.
Leo Laporte, Kevin Rose, Roger Chang, Robert Heron, Serafina, Jim, the whole Revision3 crew... the list could go on for a while.
I have to say some of my most treasured memories will involve a pair of Davids: David Randolph and David Calkins and the -truly random- work we've done on Systm. Fire, molten steel, high voltage stupidity, long range WiFI, soldering, software tweaks, power tools, game controllers, six ton cranes... over the course of 97 or so of the 108 episodes of Systm, I've gotten to have a lot of fun and build a lot of projects.
There's also been a lot of insane 18 hours shoots, second degree burns, damaged hardware and massive amounts of stress, because, frankly, we've been doing a lot of work with very few people.
Episode 109 marks a major change in Systm. Going forward, Systm will no longer be a weekly long format show. It will morph into regular, if shorter, hands on segments that will live inside Tekzilla.
We hope David Calkins will keep joining us for projects on Tekzilla and would love to coax David Randolph back, too!
We do expect to release long format episodes in the future, just not on any regular schedule. (That could change. Remember when PixelPerfect ended? Then came back?)
It's kind of fitting. Kevin Rose, Dan Huard and David Prager launched Systm because they were frustrated with the show they were currently working on. They wanted a place to go deep on tech without having to cram a six hour project into a 3 minute TV segment.
Now we've got an online show where we can go a lot longer than 3 minutes on any sort of tech we want: it's called Tekzilla.
I hope you'll join us there as we roll in more hands on projects, and I'd like to thank everyone that's been watching over the years: it's been a pleasure building for you.
TV shows, like people, are born, live for a while, and pass on.
Systm was the first show launched by Revision3 and it won't be the last. I hope you'll check out the next show I'll be working on here. It's called HDNation.TV, and it's for people that love HD content and want to build the best home theater experience they can manage on their budget.
Hope to see you next week on Tekzilla,
