I finished loading up my new MP3 player with every CD I could find in my house. The darned thing has 3,400+ songs on it and I have almost 30 Gig of storage space left. I’m still going to look into one of those all-you-can-download song rental subscriptions, but in the mean time, I plan to dive back in to the world of podcasting.
I played around a bit with a couple of podcasts with iPodder on my PocketPC. It felt like a clumsy solution though and I quickly lost interest. Our group just published the first book on the topic, Podcasting: Do It Yourself Guide. I’m pleased to see it debut on the Amazon Computers & Internet bestseller list. I plan to start reading the book this weekend and test-drive some podcasts on my Creative MP3 player. By the way, I’m trying to see how long I can go without listening to FM radio. Thanks to the broad assortment of tunes that are now at my fingertips, I haven’t listened to the radio since late May…
Speaking of Amazon bestsellers, I’m also thrilled to see one of our newest WROX books, Professional DotNetNuke ASP.NET Portals on the list as well. As Jim Minatel reported over on his blog, the book has been very popular at TechEd this week.
Finally, now that Sybex is officially part of the Wiley family, it’s great to see Tim Grey’s latest book, Photoshop CS2 Workflow: The Digital Photographer’s Guide doing so well. It’s not only been a regular on Amazon’s list, it was #1 there for a few days there earlier this month. I got to speak with Tim today and welcome him to the Wiley family – he’s a terrific author with a great platform.
