Man, I'm not gonna be able to make it. 🙁 I will be at IWC though! Let me know if there is anything I can do remotely to help prep.

We’ll miss you at HWC! No worries about IWC planning. I think Jonathan and I have all the space prep, item fetching, and food-planning locked down. We can coordinate features to demo Saturday morning in -meta.

All of this certainty will probably go out the window next Monday when the event is looming. :}

Introduction to Podcasting

The BIG Theater 1727 N Charles St, BaltimoreMD, 21201

It seems like everybody has a podcast these days. And why not? You’ve probably already got a great podcast idea in mind and want to get started!

In this densely packed 2-hour workshop, we’ll cover the basics, with opportunities for hands-on practice:

  • Using the BIG studio equipment (Zoom H6, Shure SM-58 microphones) to record raw audio
  • Using Audacity editing software (available for Mac, Windows, and Linux) to clean up audio and create a finished episode
  • Publishing an episode online using Soundcloud
  • Adding a podcast to the Apple Podcasts (a.k.a. iTunes) directory

Tickets are only $10. Reserve your spot now!

Participants should bring an SD card with at least 2GB of free space and a way to take notes. Folks interested in hands-on time with editing are encouraged to bring a laptop with the Audacity audio editing software (http://www.audacityteam.org/) installed. Finally, to save, time, everyone is encouraged to create a SoundCloud account (https://soundcloud.com/) as well as an Apple ID (https://www.apple.com/shop/account/home) if you don’t have them already.

Instructors: Marty McGuire and Jonathan Monroe.

Thanks to co-host Jonathan Monroe for putting his body on the line for this week’s We Have to Ask Podcast!

Announcing lazymention: elegant outbound Webmention for static sites
This post also appeared on IndieNews. Last night I hit publish on version 1.0.0 of a new project, lazymention! Whoohoo! tl;dr: lazymention exists to add Webmention support to static sites! To elaborate a little bit, I developed lazymention because I had a problem with this site: I wanted to send outbound Webmentions when I link to things, but my website...

Congrats! Lazymention looks great! I recently fixed up my site to properly send WebSub notifications to begin building exactly something like lazymention, so I look forward to WebSub support!
