Why I Downgraded To Keynote 09
This week, I made the decision to go ahead and upgrade a few of my computers to the latest version of Apple’s Mac OSX operating system, Mavericks. In the episode, I share my experiences with the upgrade and how much I love the multiple display support.
During the upgrade process, I had also upgraded to the latest version of Keynote (6.0). While the user interface is drastically different and will take some getting used to, I suppose that most of the features to create a presentation, at least the ones that I have ever used, seem to still be there. However, I made the decision to downgrade back to Keynote 09 (version 5.3) due to the lack of customization within the presenter window. I discuss this, in great detail, in the episode.
Podcasting Patent Update
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has filed a formal challenge to the so-called “podcasting patent” used by Personal Audio, LLC. In January 2013, Personal Audio, LLC, began suing a number of podcasters, including comedian The Adam Carolla Show and three major television networks, claiming they infringe US Patent No. 8,112,504.
The challenge petition shows that Personal Audio did not invent anything new, and, in fact, other people were podcasting years before Personal Audio first applied for their patent. More details can be found by clicking here.

As the Director of Podcasting For New Media Expo, I have been working with a large number of successful podcasters, over the past several months, putting together and amazing lineup for the Podcasting Track for our NMX 2014 event that will be held in Las Vegas this coming January.
