A Capital Duo Talk Tech - Episode 1

@klepas and I put together a podcast. It’s going to be a bi-weekly sort of affair (or whenever we feel like it). I should note, first up, that the audio quality is pretty terrible. It was a first shot and not one of the three recording devices we used were really up to scratch - we’ll definitely have that fixed before next time!

(Or download)

In this episode, we discuss:

  1. Recent events in the world of web fonts (proposals to bring more fonts to the web, and the advent of TypeKit)

  2. The pronunciation of Opera (Oh-pear-uh? Op-er-rah?)

  3. Static vs. Dynamic Website Content Generators

  4. OpenAtrium, a new intranet package based on Drupal (which we’ll review next time around!)

Turns out ID3 metadata in MP3s is pretty limited - our show notes in the MP3 cut out about a third of the way through. So, here’s some useful links:

  1. ‘Beautiful Web Typography’ talk slides
  2. Typekit
  3. Kernest
  4. Jekyll
  5. Development Seed
  6. Drupal
  7. Open Atrium
