Arrested DevOps: Inner Source To Open Source With Aaron Rinehart - ADO98

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 08:55:48 -0500

Open source projects have a lot of benefits, as we all know. But sometimes it can be a real challenge to take tools and projects developed internally and open-source them, especially from a traditional enterprise. Guest Aaron Rinehart shares his journey and story with open sourcing his internal security chaos engineering tool, Chaoslingr

CES 2018 with Matt Kamla and Michael Prince – WHS 222 - The Wired Homeschool

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 11:01:07 -0500

Photo credit: Ryan Boyles CES 2018 has passed but coverage still continues. There’s no doubt you’re seeing many articles about the gadgets and gizmos from CES 2018 that will make your life easier or more connected. Matt Kamla (a listener of the podcast) and Michael Prince from Family Tech Blog both attended CES this year and shared some of the things they were excited to see. In addition, I shared three things from CES that caught my eye. From VR to conductive ink, here are the things we’re excited about from CES 2018. Matt’s CES 2018 Picks HoloKit is a low-cost open-source mixed reality experience, which includes the HeadKit cardboard headset and TrackKit software. With your smartphone and Mixed Reality apps, HoloKit provides you access to the world of Mixed Reality right in your hands, affordably. Oculus Rift is the 400-lb gorilla when it comes to virtual reality. Kits can be quite expensive but the experience is some of the best you’ll find on the market that consumers can get their hands on. Kits start at $399 on Amazon. HaptX, Sense Glove, and BeBop Sensors all introduced VR gloves that provide excellent haptic feedback for virtual environments. Prices for devices like these are quite expensive and many are not available for purchase yet. Look for tech like this to miniaturize and make its way into more affordable, user-friendly accessories. Michael’s CES 2018 Picks Botley lets children as young as 5 can learn to code with Botley, and with his advanced features, he’ll grow with them for many play-filled years to come. Botley is ready to use right out of the box – he’ll have kids coding in minutes. And that’s not all that makes Botley unique; he’s 100% screen-free, and the only coding robot that includes a 45-piece set! Prices for Botley start at $59. Beyond Tablet is a smart tablet without a screen. It provides a tangible games experience as well as multi-player capabilities for children and their parents. Game maps and pieces are placed on the tablet to provide an interactive experience without the distractions of a fully functional tablet. The basic package includes 5 games and costs $199. Additional games are about $40. Ziro enables building robots using non-plastic and eco-friendly materials such as cardboard boxes. Put your Amazon boxes to good use! Attach your motors to any material and see your creations come to life. Design and construct your robots out of any material you have available including pre-made starter kits. Kit are available for pre-order starting at $150. Monkey Wearable uses beacon technology to create a wireless bond to your child. So, you can let them wander but ensure they don’t stray too far. This $39 wearable device allows parents to keep tabs on any wandering kids. It’s a lot more affordable than some of the smart watches for kids and doesn’t appear to have any of the tracking concerns associated with an always-connected devices. Of course, you need to make sure your kids keep their shoes on in order for it to work! TimeBox Mini is a programmable pixel LED Bluetooth speaker. Besides being a great-sounding speaker, you can program pixel art, use it as a clock, or even program it to provide social media alerts. Functions are controlled via your smartphone. TimeBox mini is available for $50. John’s CES 2018 Picks Circuit Scribe allows you to draw your own circuits on a plain sheet of paper. The conductive ink along with their components provide a creative way to introduce the basics of electronics to homeschoolers. Circuit Scribe can be used by all grade levels with projects that grow more complex as students get older. The basic kit is $50 and there’s also a mini kit available for under $20. With MAKERbuino you build your own game console from scratch! All of the components are easy to solder. All you need is some basic soldering skills and you’re good to go! The device is based on easy-to-find components and programmed in Arduino – one of the most popular DIY microcontroller platfo[...]

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 23:26:35 -0500

In tonight’s episode of the Geocaching Podcast: The east cost of the US is getting dumped on with snow. Including where Headhardhat lives. There is nothing like getting all your friends together with a hot chocolate and telling stories. So tonight we are going to do just that. Stop on by and reminisce about geocaching good times. Be sure to check it out! Please share with other geocachers. We meet on Wednesday nights at 9:30PM ET at http://www.geocachingpodcast.com/live so you can see us record the show live and join in the chat room.

Tao Dan Park. Geocaching Junk. What is in your closet, car, etc. Favorite geocaching item you no longer use. TAZ427: Almost being eaten by a snake twice on one day, and falling off a log while crossing over a bayou in February (the good thing was that there was a copperhead on the other end of the log that didn’t eat me.) Later was the encounter w/ a cottonmouth. And finally other cachers posting video’s of me on Facebook falling into the Bayou. This past Sunday at Foresthill Bridge (740’ drop from road level to the American River below) grabbed a couple caches with my wife while my Son road his bike down the trails. It was supposed to be a 2.5 terrain, but turned into a 4.0T and that didn’t go over very well with my better half.

While not looking forward to the 14-hour nonstop flight, I am looking forward to finding my first cache in a new country that will also be my first cache in Asia and my first find in the eastern hemisphere. One of the side trips we are taking will be to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) between North and South Korea. At the Joint Security Area (see link at https://ramblingwombat.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/the-joint-security-area-meeting-rooms/), there are several buildings that straddle the border. On a tour (military escort required), it is possible to go into one of these buildings, a conference room, and actually walk over to the North Korean side and have your picture taken! (What ever you do, don’t walk out that back door by mistake!) Okay, here’s the deal. North Korea doesn’t have a cache. And I don’t have a virtual reward to place, nor do I know anyone who does. But if someone wants to contribute their virtual reward, I will provide all the needed info and coords on one condition: I get to log it. So if you have a virtual reward to contribute to what should prove to be a historic cache, you can message me through geocaching.com. Looking forward to hearing fro[...]

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 23:23:06 -0500

In tonight’s episode of the Geocaching Podcast: We discuss a situation with our very own Infoferret in a situation that deals with a geocaching CO or Cache Owner. Then we take it a bit further with other CO situations. Be sure to check it out! Please share with other geocachers. We meet on Wednesday nights at 9:30PM ET at http://www.geocachingpodcast.com/live so you can see us record the show live and join in the chat room. See you there! #geocaching #geocachingpodcast #headhardhat #podcast ——————————————————————- The Video Version of our Podcast GCPC EPISODE 522 Show Notes GCPC EPISODE 522 – Geocaching CO Expectations and Responsibilities Infoferret gets her ‘Ranty pants’ on… Whilst on holiday I logged a DNF (not a found it log) and as I was the 3rd person to DNF it, also a NM on one of this guy’s caches. This was the e-mail response…I’ve deleted the details of the CO and the specific cache. Hi You recently logged a visit on one of our caches. Thanks for visiting You also logged a “needs maintenance” log. This is to let you know we have done the miles and the result. As part of our response, we choose to send this standard email to all authors of “needs maintenance” logs. We do not look for a reply. This email signals the cache is now fixed. We filter all DNF and “wet” logs for checking, a bookmark link is on effected cache page until fixed (we don’t need the extra log).. Your “Found” log is deleted because log not signed. We happily maintain our caches, to date; we have done over 1100 recorded maintenance visits of our own caches. A long trip for you to get here? Probably is for the cache owner too We take the opportunity to suggest you consider do as many other players, being “Johnny on the spot”, and while not a requisite, why not contribute to the game and look at doing a fix. Because we own 1000+ caches, we appreciate all the help we get. We are finding 75% of these we check, either did not really require our visit or have already been fixed by other cachers We say this on behalf of all cache owners. Besides the costs and frustration to cache owners, this also enhances the experience of fellow cache finders to follow. We hope you were able to enjoy some of our caches. Travel and cache safely.

SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 222

News:
No news this week…

December Prize Winner, New Year Goals – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 222

Part One:
From the Geocaching Forums
Deciding Whether a New Cache Should Be Premium or Not
https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/346200-deciding-whether-a-new-cache-should-be-premium-or-not/&_fromLogin=1
Do You Set Your Caches Premium Member Only?
Benefits of Premium Only?
Are Premium Only caches less likely to get stolen?
Geocache Visibility – Premium or All?
Newbie Question: Why Mark a Cache as Premium Only?

Part Two:
New Years Goals – Not Resolutions
Why do them?
Google – The more often you remind yourself of a goal, the more attuned your brain becomes to information, people, events, or opportunities that support it. And because human memory needs external support, write your resolutions down somewhere where you can look them up easily and often.
What is ours?

Part Three:

December 2017 Cache Stash Prize Winner
The Prize is a surprize to keep with the holiday season. It contains four separate items. You will love them!
Want to thank GxProxy, Cache-Advance and CoinsAndPins for contributing the prizes.

Any geocaching? End of the Year Gripes 2017 – Anything you want to get off your chest… Goals for 2018 ——————————————————————- NEWS: No news this week. ——————————————————————- GCPC Mailbag…Send your geocaching email to: GCPCMailbag@gmail.com I am a relatively new listener to GCPC. I started listening about the same time as Sarah started hosting. A visit to New Zealand is one of my dreams and meeting her is person would be icing on the cake if I ever get a chance to fulfill that dream. I don’t get a chance to listen to the live taping because of other obligations I have on Wed. evening, but watching to the YouTube video on Thursday morning is something I look forward to every week. In show 520 there was a lot of discussion about food. I especially enjoyed the part about British cuisine. It brought back lots of memories of the 18 months I spent in Scotland and England. The two foods I really fell in love with and miss are fish and chips, and English tea. What we have here in the U.S. that is supposed to be British fish and chips and tea just isn’t the same. Kind of like going to Taco Bell for Mexican food. Unfortunately I somehow missed trying mushy peas. I did however try haggis as I was in Scotland most of the time and it is sold in the same shops that sell fish and chips. Not my favorite, especially after I found out what it is made from. Love the show and especially the informal style. Hope to see you at GeoWoodstock. I’ll be there as I live just across the river. Can’t miss the first U.S. Giga! UncleCacher ——————————— Yay Scott’s got mail! So I didn’t get a chance to go geocaching on Christmas due to family commitments and having cashed out my area, but I started a new tradition this year playing another location-based game while en route from one destination to another…. Almost equally as fun… Are you ready for it? Wait for it… PokeJew! *Ding ding* Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and happy holidays to the gcpc crew!

PowerPress and Community Podcast: Celebrating New Comings and Past Achievements - PowerPress Podcast

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 11:32:33 -0500

(image) It’s a new year and you should have new goals for the year. Due to taking some time off for the holidays – which gave MacKenzie some time to think of new goals for herself – the following episode is a re-run.

Past show notes from the episode release in September of 2017:

Back in September of 2015 MacKenzie was tasked with restarting Blubrry’s show, the PowerPress Podcast. With consistent bi-weekly episodes, it’s finally the two year anniversary of the show. The official date, birthday, whatever one wants to call it, is September 10th, 2015. Podcasting comes with highs and lows, regardless of how much support a podcaster has surrounding them. To help MacKenzie celebrate, she brought on Jane Ellen, a past guest to talk about what they’ve learned, experienced and changed over their time podcasting. Thanks everyone for listening and subscribing to the show for the past two years. Many good things to come!

Fan of PowerPress? Leave us a review here!

Show notes:

Glistening Particles – Take a listen to Jane Ellen’s show about conversations with random acquaintances and more.
Old PowerPress episode with Jane – From October of 2016.
She Podcasts – For any female podcasts our there, join this group. It’s full of great advise, conversations and ideas.
Editing – I was told Lynda.com is great for learning Audition.
Podcasters’ HangoutPodcast Community – There are more Facebook groups as well, search for them!
Columbus Podcaster’s Meetup – We meet at the end of every month – in September we’ll be talking about monetization.
16 Personalities – MacKenzie started to take the test again after this podcast, still didn’t finish it.

I’m working on putting together my first power trail and I love to get your insights on these, both from the hiding and hunting view point. I know they can be a bit controversial. Some people like them and some don’t. I personally find them boring, but I’ve only tried two. I’m sure there are good ones out there and I want to make sure mine is one of them. I’m calling it “The ABCs of geocaching”. Number 1 is A is for… 2 is B is for…, C is for… and so on.

PowerPress and Community Podcast: Starting a Show, Net Neutrality and Apple Stats - PowerPress Podcast

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 14:41:06 -0500

(image) Starting a podcast can be simple, if podcasters follow a few guidelines. A Blubrry intern, Justin Mosley, recently started his own podcast called Pressing Clarification and used a PowerPress Site to get started. Net Neutrality was repealed in a vote by the FCC on December 14th. For those that oppose the repeal, there is some hope. Many Congress members have stated that they will be doing all they can to fight against this repeal.

Apple has released a beta of their podcast statistics, available for all Apple users in their Podcast Connect dashboard. Blubrry is getting these statistics at the same time as podcasters, so please bear with them as they analyze and scrutinize the new statistics. Apple mentioned an API, but did not make any promises or provide much detail, so that will come in time. Feel free to ask the team questions about the new Apple stats, but we’re learning as we go as well.

Happy Holidays! Thanks for listening and please subscribe to the show. Want to be a guest on the show? Email MacKenzie why you think you’d be a good guest and a link to your website.

DevRadio (MP4) - Channel 9: Git at Enterprise Scale: (Part 3) An Introduction to GVFS and Why You Should Use It

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 13:00:30 -0500

Git struggles to handle enterprise-scale repositories. Operations like cloning will slow to a crawl when you have millions of files in a repository, and even something as simple as getting your repository status will leave you waiting. The Git Virtual File System (GVFS) is an open source system that enables Git to operate at enterprise-scale. It makes using and managing massive Git repositories possible.

In Part 3 of our 3 part series, Jerry Nixon, Saeed Noursalehi and Christian Allred show us what GVFS looks like under the hood and how you can start using it today.  

  • [01:36] Today you're going to show us some of the behind the scenes magic of GVFS, correct?
  • [02:56] What is a mini-filter and why is this important in GVFS?
  • [06:16] How does the mini-filter work in GVFS?
  • [10:11] Can you give us some more info around the approach to cloaning?
  • [23:45] Talk to us about Placeholder files
  • [28:31] DEMO: What is tombstone?
  • [48:13] What's next for GVFS?

For instance, if a cache has two DNF’s he is contacting the cache owner and requiring maintenance or archive. Many of the new cachers are quick to log a DNF. What if the cache is hard to find?

PowerPress and Community Podcast: Services Podcasters Need and Don’t Need - PowerPress Podcast

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 20:10:01 -0500

(image) With all of the options out there for podcasters to choose from on what can be helpful to their show and their audience, it can be a little overwhelming to figure out which services podcasters need and don’t need. There are some out there worth their salt that are important every day for podcasting, while others can easily be left behind.

Do podcasters need a search engine devoted to picking apart show notes? Is it critical to be in every directory? Listen Notes may be helpful to some, but it’s not a service that your podcast won’t work without. Directories are not necessarily going to drive traffic to your show, or grow your audience; solid show notes that work well with Google will. Spotify has relaxed listing consideration and is opening to more podcasters being on the platform. Apply below, but be patient as they review shows.

Net Neutrality on the other hand, that’s a concept that is incredibly important to the podcasting world. The FCC will be voting on December 14th, so get involved in the fight for Net Neutrality before it’s too late.

Quick update on Blubrry, we’ve begun a campaign called #BuildYourBlubrry, and we can’t wait for some of you to win some prizes. All month long we’ll be giving away podcasting prizes and goodies – so check out our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Hope to see some of you at PodCon this weekend, look out for Todd and MacKenzie at the Blubrry booth. Thanks for listening and please subscribe.

Podcast Help Desk – Going Deep Into The Technology Of Podcasting: Recording an Episode – PHD103

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 10:52:03 -0500

(image) Today I talk about recording your episodes. It’s an off the top of my head episode about how I record, some tips for recording.

The main points are:

1. Find some quiet time in a quiet space.
2. Allow enough time for re-dos and editing (while it’s fresh).
3. Don’t overthink it.
4. Get comfortable with the tech and talking on the mic.
5. Don’t be afraid to do 2 or 3 retakes if needed.

I also tell you about how I started a new show (Fast Food History) and how it’s a bit out of my comfort zone and I’m not taking ALL of my advice. But, I think it’s going to be a good exercise for me to experience starting a show that has nothing to do with Tech or Podcasting.

The Audacity to Podcast: How to Recover from a Failed Podcast – TAP333

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 08:00:45 -0500

A podcast failure doesn't mean you should quit podcasting. Here are 9 steps to help you recover and keep moving forward! 1. Stop complaining Complaining about what you call a failure is only wasting time. Your complaining won't improve anything, it won't fix the problem, and it won't inspire others. Complaining gives your mistakes more power over you. When you stop complaining, you can start doing. 2. Define your “failure” What actually happened that you are calling a “failure”? Try to define and even measure it. Shift away from using the “failure” label and into a descriptive and measurable goal you didn't reach. You should be describing a fact, not an interpreted consequence. This, alone, may help correct your perspective because you might realize what you called a “failure” was only one small missed goal. For example: “My podcast launch failed” might really be, “I didn't get into ‘New and Noteworthy.'” “I failed at monetizing” might really be, “I couldn't get the 5 sponsors I contacted.” “My cohost is a failure at podcasting” might really be, “My cohost didn't do what I expected.” “I'm failing at consistency” might really be, “I haven't been publishing episodes on the same days every week.” As you get more descriptive and measurable in how you define your “failure,” you'll probably realize it was merely one goal you didn't achieve—and maybe only not yet. 3. Take responsibility Most likely, you're the leader in your podcast. Regardless of how you describe the failure, you need to take responsibility for it. Don't blame Apple, your cohosts, your audience, the technology, the niche, the competition, or anyone or anything else. Doing so is like handing over your success and control to someone or something else. This is probably hard to accept: you are responsible for what went wrong. Maybe you didn't work hard enough. Maybe you didn't make pursue excellence. Maybe you didn't do the right things. Maybe you didn't communicate properly. Maybe you didn't have the right expectations. Yes, mistakes or bad things can happen that are outside your own control. But letting these things wreck your podcast is your responsibility. This really isn't about what happened, but about how you contributed to it and how you handle it. 4. Understand what went wrong When you have your “failure” defined and you're taking responsibility, you can seek to understand how things led to what you call a failure. For example, if your cohost has been a horrible companion for your podcast, look at what kind of expectations you set for them as well as held yourself. Look at how you communicated. You might realize your cohost never knew what you expected of them, or maybe you never reinforced it. Most importantly, when you know what broke, you'll know what you need to fix. You may have even already had a plan, but maybe you didn't follow it—either because you chose not to, or you were unable to. 5. Make a new plan Recovering from any level of failure req[...]

DevRadio (MP4) - Channel 9: Git at Enterprise Scale: (Part 1) An Introduction to GVFS and Why You Should Use It

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 09:20:35 -0500

Git struggles to handle enterprise-scale repositories. Operations like cloning will slow to a crawl when you have millions of files in a repository, and even something as simple as getting your repository status will leave you waiting. The Git Virtual File System (GVFS) is an open source system that enables Git to operate at enterprise-scale. It makes using and managing massive Git repositories possible.

Join Jerry Nixon as he welcomes Saeed Noursalehi and Christian Allred to the show as they give us an in-depth overview of GVFS and why developers should use it.

  • [04:13] Generally speaking, how is migration going into the cloud with VSTS vs. on premise with TFS?
  • [06:53] Can you describe for our listeners how Microsoft internally uses Git?
  • [08:42] What was Microsoft's experience like when using Git?
  • [10:32] What did it take to bring Windows into Git?
  • [16:17] Why did you choose Git?
  • [18:55] What was the bottleneck in using Git and how did you solve it?
  • [24:25] What's next for you guys?

The Audacity to Podcast: Why You Should NOT Publish Audio Podcasts on YouTube – TAP332

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 08:00:25 -0500

Many podcasting tools offer the ability to automatically crosspost your audio podcast to YouTube. Here are eleven reasons I think you shouldn't do that. I often use the term “fake video” to describe what some podcasters make. It's when they take the whole audio of their episode, put it into a video file, and display a simple image (static or sometimes moving). It's essentially audio with pixel dimensions. I think the short, animated videos commonly called “audiograms” are entirely separate and beneficial. My following thoughts address the “fake video” approach. 1. The supporting reasons are mostly misunderstood and short-term I usually hear four reasons to publish fake video on YouTube: To make your content discoverable on Google and YouTube—Maybe true, at first, but it will soon be demoted. It's easy and maybe even automated with publishing tools—Simply because something is easy doesn't mean it's good. It reaches a non-podcast audience—True, but it's reaching them so ineffectively, you might not see any positive results. “It can't hurt”—Actually, it can hurt, as you'll understand from the following points. 2. It's abusing the platform YouTube is a video platform. It's designed for videos. When people search or browse YouTube, they expect to watch videos. Posting fake video goes against the simple premise of video. If someone writes a long blog post, takes a screenshot, and shares that image on Instagram, we would consider that abusing the platform. If someone makes a blank image and uploads to Instagram only so they can write a long blog post, we would consider that abusing the platform. If someone releases a series of silent podcast episodes only so they can put out the titles in podcast apps, we would consider that abusing the platform. And if someone publishes only audio, but no video, on a video-based platform, we should also consider that abusing the platform. This is not an effective technique for sharing content appropriate to the platform. This is more like a blackhat hack with a bait and switch. 3. The “view” stats are meaningless If you publish fake video, or you see other fake videos, you may initially think it's a success because of the view counts. But like “downloads per time,” view counts don't tell the whole story and are a meaningless stat. Social networks count something as a “view” after different amounts of time. YouTube seems to have a 30-second threshold. So someone could watch a video for only 30 seconds, and it would be counted as a view. But if your video is as short as a few minutes or much longer, only 30 seconds is meaningless to actual consumption. Think of it as a local store. The way YouTube and other social networks work, they would count you as a customer every time you drive by and look at the store. But were you really a customer if you didn't at least go inside? Contrast that with the nature of podcast downloads and consumption. This is more like counting everyone w[...]

The Audacity to Podcast: How to Work with Other Podcasters – TAP331

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 08:00:58 -0500

Working with other podcasters can be energizing, but it can also feed your inner troll. Here's how you can build friendships instead of enemies in podcasting. Respect One of the first times I met Dan Miller, author of 48 Days to the Work You Love, he told me of his then-upcoming 48th wedding anniversary. So I asked him what he considered the secret to his long and happy marriage. He said, “One word: respect.” Oh, how much better our world would be if we had respect—and even love—for one another! Insulting someone's intelligence or attacking their preferences won't help anyone. We must have a heart of respect for each other, and that can go very far. Treat each person individually If you hang out in online communities for long, you'll see the same questions asked several times. While you probably don't mean to, it's easy to pile up your feelings about the repetition of those questions. So when you see the thirtieth person ask the same question, it's may be easy to lash out either overtly or passively. But look at things from that person's perspective. They need help and they went to that community hoping they could get the help they needed. True, they probably could have found the solution by searching, but being in anxious need often seems to distract us from the obvious. Consider a community for podcasters. If someone comes in and asks, “How do I upload my podcast to iTunes?” and they get a flurry of harsh responses, that person may see them as saying, “You're stupid.” And then be hurt from their experience. I must honestly call myself out on this one, too. I don't think we do this kind of thing intentionally. But treat each person individually—again, with respect. Accept different methodologies Blubrry, Libsyn, SoundCloud, Anchor, Podcast Websites, SquareSpace, FeedBurner, WordPress, and much more are merely tools to accomplish certain goals within podcasting. While some tools are certainly better for certain tasks than others, that doesn't mean we must try to convert everyone to that tool. I once met a fresh new podcaster at an event. They had just started their podcast and website, and they met a vendor with a competing product to what they used. Instead of helping that podcaster understand the benefits of the competing product, that vendor came across as belittling to that podcaster, and a poor opinion was formed. Sadly, I've actually seen that happen many times, and I might have even done it myself a couple times. We don't need to act so exclusive about how to podcast. It's not a moral issue; there's no single right way to podcast—and that's what makes podcasting wonderful! So whether you're discussing PlayStation vs. Xbox, Windows vs. Linux vs. macOS, Android vs. iOS, Democrat vs. Republican, or anything else, respect others' decisions and don't try to change them (at least not right away). Even when there is only a single right way to do so[...]

10 More Internet Safety Tips for Homeschoolers - The Wired Homeschool

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 21:21:35 -0500

As our kids grow up, we begin to give them a little bit more freedom. Maybe they get a smartphone or a laptop for themselves. This can be a scary time for parents who are concerned about the safety of their children. If your teen has a device and you’re concerned about their online activity, here are 10 Internet Safety Tips for Homeschoolers that will keep teens safer online. I covered this topic in 2016 and a lot has changed since then. This list has a little bit of overlap with the previous one but it’s also more technical. Parents of teens will want to share both lists and consider whether or not there are some things they could do to model better Internet behavior. Don’t visit questionable websites File-sharing, “free” movie sites, questionable forums. Set social media accounts to private Keeps away the creepers because you have to approve them before they can follow you. Don’t post personal information online Don’t share that you’ll be at Applebee’s having dinner. Nobody needs to know that except the people you’ll be with. Protect your email account Email is the master-key to nearly all of your online accounts. It should be protected so that someone can’t use email to takeover your online accounts. Use two-factor authentication Passwords aren’t enough these days. Have a second way to verify your identity. Use a password manager If you’re going to have hard-to-guess passwords it’s a good idea to have a way to manage them. I recommend LastPass. They now have a family plan so that families can share passwords to common accounts like streaming services Don’t send sensitive information via text or email Use a private, encrypted free service like DropBox or Google Drive to send scans of documents like birth certificates or a driver’s license. Don’t open email attachments Unless someone specifically told they’d be sending you an attachment, don’t open it. In fact, if someone you know does send you one, ask them to send it through a service like Google Drive. Backup your data Many devices have built-in backup these days. Use it. Don’t click or tap on links from untrusted sources If you get a link in an email, text, or other message from an unknown or untrusted source don’t open it. Even if you know the person, if it looks fishy, it probably is. Connect Socially!

PowerPress and Community Podcast: Podcasting Around the Holidays - PowerPress Podcast

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 11:18:13 -0500

(image) Blubrry has been collecting podcasting data since day one when they started in 2005. Our statistics allows us to collect information on how people are listening – the trends, what they do, what they don’t do, etc. At the end of the day we regularly come to conclusions on this data and share it with the world. Recently, a blog post went out about some of this information, you can find it on PowerPressPodcast.com.

An RSS feed can be confusing or a hassle to some, which is why services such as feed validators are so important and utilized. Recently, Blubrry acquired widely used and highly recommeneded, Cast Feed Validator.

NaPodPoMo – Podcast for 30 days straight. This challenge is great for any podcaster, and MacKenzie has already failed at it. No worries, she has a different take on 30 days straight and will be working on a different type of podcasting initiative for the month of November.

Lastly, MacKenzie shares her podcasting chronicle – setting a second goal for herself before December. The holidays can feel like a burden for your podcast, but don’t let them get in the way – there are so many listeners out there that are utilizing their free time around the holidays to listen to new shows and catch up on old episodes.

Thanks for listening and please subscribe! If you’d like to be on the show email MacKenzie, she’s always looking for new guests.

Show notes:

FinCon: In case you missed out, it’s a financial expo for media creators in the financial industry. Lots of potential podcasters attended.
Cast Feed Validator: Now in Blubrry’s hands, with no major changes coming to the service in the near future.
Podcasting Data: Information you didn’t know you wanted about the podcasting industry. Hint, more people are listening to podcasts.
NaPodPoMo: Will you be podcasting for almost everyday of the month of November? Become a better podcaster simply by podcasting more.

Podcast Help Desk – Going Deep Into The Technology Of Podcasting: Recording Equipment for Your Podcast – PHD102

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 11:08:00 -0500

News: Blubrry/RawVoice has acquired Cast Feed Validator (castfeedvalidator.com)

Recording Equipment

You do not need anything a smartphone to start podcasting.  Some people have good luck with just a smartphone and if done right, they can record a good show with just that.

  • Microphones.  I suggest NOT getting a USB Condenser mic  Go for a dynamic mic.  ATR2100 is a good starter mic if you have to use USB.  You can go with a more expensive microphone and use a USB interface.
  • Mixer –  You don’t *have* to have a mixer, but it can help.  It allows more than one mic to be plugged in.  It has mic Preamps. The little more expensive ones will allow a Mix-Minus. (a whole nother episode)
  • Software  Audacity is free, Garageband is free with a Mac (so not free).  Audition is $15 a month.  Hindenburg journalist is expensive.
  • You really don’t need much else.
  • The whole idea is to get something that will give you a clean audio recording.  No need for the fancy stuff.

    If you want to get fancy

  • Compressor limiter gate

  • Equalizer
  • Sound treatment
  • External recorder deck / Portable recorder

  • Boom arm for the mic
  • Broadcast headset (with or without mic)
  • What equipment you get is totally dependant on Budget and what type of podcast you are going to do.   

    If you are going to have a remote co-host or if you are going to interview people, I suggest a real mixer (not the cheapest one).  You really don’t want to depend totally on software to record skype.

    Auphonic is a great way to level your sound out after you have edited.

    The Audacity to Podcast: Why Feed Hits and Monthly Downloads are Meaningless Podcast Stats – TAP330

    Tue, 07 Nov 2017 08:00:49 -0500

    Feed hits and monthly downloads are two podcast stats the may confuse or mislead podcasters. Here's why you should never rely on these meaningless numbers. Why feed hits are a meaningless stat Every time a podcast app check for new episodes, it's checking for updated information from your RSS feed. That counts as a feed hit each time. Tools like FeedBurner, FeedBlitz, and some startup podcast hosting companies may offer stats on how many times your feed is loaded. But such a stat doesn't tell you the true size of your audience, for the following six reasons. 1. There is no measurement standard Unlike the industry standard we have for measuring podcast downloads, there is no association setting a standard or guideline for measuring feed hits. For example, should only full downloads of the feed be counted, or should head requests (probably checking the “Last-Modified” date) be counted, too? 2. Apps refresh feeds throughout the day Whereas a podcast episode is usually downloaded only once, a podcast RSS feed will be loaded multiple times. Some apps refresh the feed every hour. Some apps refresh even more frequently than that! This then requires more filtering to reduce the excessive duplication by IP address. 3. There's no way to track a single device across multiple IP addresses Speaking of IP addresses, most mobile devices will probably have at least three different IP addresses in an average day: one for home, one for work, and one for mobile. But there could be even more if your mobile device automatically connects to additional wifi networks (such as a store, a coffee shop, a friends house, etc.). And if you leave a particular region, it's likely your mobile data provider will give your device a new IP address as the location changes. For media downloads, this kind of IP address behavior can be accounted for with some different filtering and crossreferencing. Even at the simplest level of measurement, podcast apps will download an episode only once unless the user forces it to redownload. But since mobile devices refresh the feeds throughout the day and their IP addresses change as their location changes, a single device could show up as multiple devices based on RSS feed hits. 4. Feed traffic varies every day Podcast RSS feeds are only checked based on app settings and user interaction. This usually results in lower activity on the weekends. Measuring RSS feed hits would make it seem like your audience unsubscribes on the weekends. Many website statistics tools, such as Google Analytics, will track a user across multiple visits, so it's easy to see how many unique visits you had across time (such as a week or month). But FeedBurner and other RSS tools don't offer such tracking, and thus repo[...]
