From 1997 to 1999, I wrote a weekly technology column in the News Journal (Wilmington, DE). Well, that column is history. I don't miss the deadlines, but I admit to sometimes missing "my soapbox." So, with the new technology that combines audio files and RSS feeds, I can resume inflicting my opinions on the world.
These mandocasts will typically be short pieces:
- reviews of movies, restaurants, books, hardware, software, or anything else I decide to review;
- observations about life, especially as it pertains to technology's role;
- occasional performances by a band with which I'm performing;
- and who knows what else.
Feel free to drop me a note at mandorichard at yahoo dot com (spelled out in a vain attempt to foil the SPAM address harvesters).
Not an iTunes or RSS user?
Yup. That's a bass. In my next life, I'll practice mandolin enough that I won't have to lug a bass around! I also teach (ethics and [formerly] English), work in computer support at the University of Delaware, still coach and ref youth soccer, run (well, "try not to be run over by" is more like it!) the rr-folk e-mail list, play old-time music with Tater Patch (sit in sometimes with other folks, too), teach Sunday school, and otherwise keep busy.
