Please join me in wishing Ken Ray, host of the MacOSKen podcast, a happy 10th year show anniversary.

I have been listening to his show for almost 9 years. Each morning after I grab my first cup of coffee I head on over to iTunes to listen to his daily show covering all things Apple.

Happy Show Anniversary, Ken!

Happy Podcast Birthday to MacOSKen

Tomorrow the MacOSKen podcast will turn eight years old. The first show was five minutes long and recorded on January 26, 2006. Was Apple even around in 2006? MacOSKen is the first thing I turn on and listen to each and every weekday morning.

I want to wish a happy podcast birthday to my friend Ken Ray and his awesome MacOSKen podcast.

You rock

They are the Champions: Part 1

Last week IBM announced a new class of champions for 2014. This blog post is the first in a series highlighting the great work of some of them. Here I go:

David Leedy

I first met David in New York City in October 2009 at the Tri-LUG user group meeting. While we had perviously met virtually, this was the first time we met in person. We shared a few beers and dinner and at that time he had given to Gayle and I an awesome set of all things Elguji branded coasters that he and his wife Becky made. It was truly an awesome gift. David and I have developed a very rewarding friendship. I can talk to David about anything and he is always there to listen.

As many of you may already know, David is the producer of the very successful NotesIn9 Screencast. Not only has David produced over 130 shows. While the screencast focusses primarily on IBM XPage technology, it also includes other topics including mobile app development, source control and much more.

David is also a strong and vocal advocate for IBM XPages technology. He is like no one else in this regard. David has published several versions of the XPages Cheatsheet.

David, thank you for all you do in this world. You are not only an IBM Champion but a personal hero of mine.

Julian Robichaux

It’s been a little over ten years since I first met Julian. We met at a blogger meet-up in Orland, Florida. I remember telling Julian I really liked the design of his NSF Tools website. The NSF Tools site was one of my favorite go-to reference site for advanced Notes and Domino code. It was truly a great privilege and honor to have met Julian. I felt as I was in the presence of one of the greatest coders I had ever known. This still holds true today.

It wasn’t until November of 2006 that I approached Julian to do a podcast. Thinking back, I had no idea why I approached Julian specifically to do this. Long story short, we started the Taking Notes podcast in 2006 and recorded 177 episodes. While we haven’t recorded any episodes since March 2013, the podcast is in temporary hiatus.

I am very grateful to call Julian a friend and to have had the honor of working with him on Taking Notes, several OpenNTF projects and application development projects for Elguji.

EYE Chart Magazine – Putting Apple and Tech News in Focus

Ken Ray of the MacOSKen podcast has started a new Apple news magazine called EYE Chart available in the App Store:

This digital-only publication covers Apple news and technology news, since it’s nearly impossible to cover one without covering the other. Monday through Friday, readers will get financial news, hardware news, software news, retail news, consumer news and more. If it’s Apple or related to Apple, EYE Chart aims to cover it.

You can get the magazine as a single issue for $1.99 (non-subscription), 1-month subscription for $4.99, automatically renewed until canceled. Payment for all purchases will be charged to your iTunes account at the confirmation of your purchase.
