Very sad he's gone. I loved his TV show when I was a kid, it's what first got me interested in media-literacy and anti-advertising work. If you've ever enjoyed the work I've done in those fields over the years, it's at least a bit his fault.

@thegibson I don't tend to get along with the military. It turns out they dislike being asked why their camo uniform has attains all over.

I'm considering running against the office of President of the United States.

It's been over a year since I've been to the airport in Milwaukee, but it turns out courtesy is still dead here.

did you know that librivox provides RSS feeds for their audiobooks? which means you can "subscribe" to a book in your podcast-player-of-choice :)

@thegibson @HackerRadioShow Thanks Gibson!

Also thanks to our colleague @volt4ire who got @HackerRadioShow federated in the first place, and is still the main force behind its toots.

I really, really am honored to announce what I'm about to announce.

So when I started thinking about what hackers.town:2600 would be, I had a dream for some spoken word shows to be in the mix as well.

We are going to be doing our own podcast soon that will be broadcast as well... but I reached out to some old heroes of mine and asked permission.

Sometimes all you have to do is ask.

@HackerRadioShow has granted permission for us to rebroadcast their show. These guy are awesome and have a weekly show about hackers/hacking/making on WBAI in NYC... and we will be rebroadcasting their shows in our mix soon...

Guys.

Go follow @HackerRadioShow for the love of god, show them numbers to get them excited about the fediverse, because they have a bullhorn.

@Rob_T_Firefly rob is one of their co-hosts, and plugs mastodon regularly on the air.

Let's return the favor.

I love you fediverse.

Now let's get out there and restore the future.

Party like it's 1995...

@thegibson @Rob_T_Firefly @volt4ire Just send an email with the details, oth at 2600 dot com reaches all of us who work on the show. Thank you so much!

@thegibson @Rob_T_Firefly @volt4ire It's not CC unfortunately, that's not something we're able to do as we use music and other non-CC stuff, but we have always openly encouraged folks to rebroadcast our show if they wish. We're happy there's interest. We would just like to know where and when it's being rebroadcast.
