I wrote this fortnight’s tech column with a tinge of guilt. The last audio podcast I did was 6 years ago coz I started to focus more on video. Am beginning to realize that audio podcasting is not only cheaper and easier to produce, it is consumed better than video. My audio podcasts are here at http://Kiruba.fm/ and video podcasts are here at http://Kiruba.TV/. Time to refocus on audio podcasting.
V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, MIT Professor and inventor of E-mail system visited my office earlier and we shot this podcast. While he is very confident that he has played an important part in the evolution of email, there have been some doubts thrown around the veracity of his claim. The purpose of the meeting was to get to hear his side of the story. In this first part, he talks about his early childhood. Fascinating start. The rest of the episodes will soon be followed at http://Kiruba.TV/
The Podcast with Global Head of Sales & Marketing of Taj Hotels & Resorts is now ready. http://t.co/AOE4QOkMeF
Here are some photos from the podcast interview with Mr.T.N.Seshan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._N._Seshan)
Setting up the equipment with Suresh Menon, the director of the soon to be released movie ‘Unnil Tholainthein’. — with Suresh Menon at T.N.Seshan’s Residence.
We set up the interview at his porch, at the entrance of his home. Previously, we had the hall as the venue. His wife was resting there and Mr.Seshan did not want to disturb her. — at T.N.Seshan’s Residence.
Mr.Seshan was in a grumpy mood. He gave very terse answers in the beginning but 15 minutes into the interview, he started to loosen up. — at T.N.Seshan’s Residence.
