We had an odd visitor this morning at the TWiT Cottage.
Strange. He always seems to show up this time of year.

- Oh dear. Layoffs at Revision3. Stay tuned. #
- @Grundy I’m not Revision3. TWiT is very lightweight compared to Rev3. So far advertisers and donations are still strong so we’re ok. So far. #
- Ooo. The new aTV Flash comes with XBMC and Boxee for the AppleTV. Looks like I picked a bad day to upgrade my cable. http://tr.im/llu #

Here’s a weird kind of fame. Brady Redfearn sent me this reCAPTCHA he got recently when logging into his Live Journal page.
I use reCAPTCHA myself on the Contact me page. It’s a cool project from CMU that uses user-power to type in unrecognizable words from scanned texts while discouraging robots and spammers.
I think I remember a Laporte in Alexandre Dumas’s The Three Musketeers. Maybe they’re scanning that?

Even if you’re for McCain, you have to admit Obama’s got better user generated content…

Liana Lehua, a podcaster and friend who has appeared on many of our shows, fell seriously ill several weeks ago
and her studio in San Francisco is about to be closed because of it.
This is the first I’ve heard of it and I’m shocked and saddened. I’m not sure what we can do right now, but I’ll let you know if I learn anything. Meanwhile, I’m sending good thoughts her way.
UPDATE: While I think the attempt to buy the Podango studios is probably a worthwhile effort, it’s important to decouple it from Liana’s condition. They’re two entirely separate issues. I’m focusing my attention on her right now. If a fund to help Liana becomes necessary, I’ll be the first to donate and encourage you to do so, too. I know she is guaranteed employment regardless of what happens to the former Podango studio.

Thanks to Qwitter, now I’ll know when people stop following me on Twitter.
Of course, Gruber stopped following me years ago.

- Not going to the Apple Event today. They’re not allowing me to bring a camera, inside or out, so there’s no point. Post coverage at 11a PST. #
- @Izzard Yes you can. Use FStream or Tuner Internet Radio on your iPhone and tune in http://twit.am/listen #
- @Underseen Great tip – I’ll make it my pick on MacBreak Weekly today – with credit to you. Thanks! #
- @Izzard By the way, don’t click that link in a browser. It’s an Icecast stream and requires Winamp, iTunes, FStream or the like to play. #
- We’ll be doing MacBreak Weekly at our usual time, 11a Pacific/2p Eastern/1800 UTC, with coverage of Apple’s announcements. #
- @digitalkitty that wasn’t me – it was Scott Bourne #
