The very last Cranky Geeks episode!

on September 23, 2010

This week is the airing of the very last Cranky Geeks episode. I thought I had been on as early as episode #8, but it turns out as Cranky Geeks fans have researched for me that I was on episode #1. I’m kind of honored to have appeared on the very first episode and the very last episode, #237. It ran for 4 1/2 years and I really had a lot of fun with John and all the other guests. This last episode is a lot of fun. We don’t talk about any tech news. We just talk about the show and look back at how the show has been made. I’m on with Chris DiBona from Google, Cade Metz from The Register and of course the Chief Crank, John C. Dvorak. Watch the last episode.

To see past episodes that I’ve appeared on, here are all the ones I’ve actually posted to my own blog, but Google does a much better job finding all of my past episodes than I did posting on my own blog.

Actually – you for on Cranky Geeks #2 ( ) . There were two CGs labels 1 on the website . Or perhaps that first one was a pilot and you were on the first of the bone fide series or something :)

I am a non- geek but enjoyed JCD and of course you!

Reading various blogs about the close of the show I was surprise to see the degree of anti Leo Laporte /TWIT comments. I think TWIT is best when JCD is on, seeking to bring the guests back to tech subjects + his COSTCO wine recommendations. Unfortunately I live in London, England so cannot take up on them.

My view is that TWIT is becoming or has become a brand/product which in time will be up sale. I get my podcasts via iTunes, and TWIT has a big presence there. That is not bad but for some pure geeks this is anathema and already TWIT's commercial success is creating a backlash, evidence by the comments about it in the context of Granky Geeks demise.

There's plenty of room and cranky pundits for everyone. TWiT's model is slightly different than Mevio's as is Revision3's. But they're all chasing after the same prize and figuring out the most lucrative way to get there.

Thanks so much for watching, and being a fan. :)

So it seems that you start as a sandel wearing geek without thoughts of becoming a millionaire but somehow become “corrupted” (read commercial) – sell – and become one. The hippy generation of the 1960's are full of Woodstock millionaires, both performers and audience members alike. So history repeats itself, again ! In time “open source”, if not already, will become the “c” word!

Ti994a was my very first computer. Had a tape deck to load programs that I wrote and it would take about 10 minutes. Yikes! Wish I could bring back Cranky Geeks. I run into a lot of fans like you.
