Review of Cranky Geeks 077


Cranky Geeks

Cranky Geeks is one of the best video podcasts I watch… probably because it's one of the only video podcasts I watch. No but seriously it's a fantastic show, I encourage you to check it out especially if you enjoy lighthearted and cranky discussion of tech trends and the well-deserved ridiculing of stupid news stories.

This was my review Episode 077 dated the 14th of August 2007.

Yet again, another great show.

There was definitely a great scale of opinions: on one side you have John and Sebastian predicting doom, Dan telling it like it is, and Natali the optimist who comes from my generation which is always refreshing :).

For the first time in a while I actually found myself agreeing more with what the guests were saying than John or Sebastian. Dan's point that people like Scoble think they're really changing the world was a good one, but Natali saying the tech is enabling with many trickle down effects was also well put.

Shows are definitely livelier when the guests are all coming from different places. And when John wears colourful clothes.

But what do I know, I waste all my time on Twitter ;).
