Yours Truely on the ‘The Media Center Show #126’

with 2 comments

Ian Dixon interviewed me a little while ago for the Media Center show podcast – and if you want to check it out – have a listen to the latest edition of the show (The Media Center Show #126 – Niall Ginsbourg). It’s my 3rd appearance – and (as before) had an enjoyable chat with Ian about what I’m up to.

It was pretty weird (once again) to hear my voice recorded – and you might need an umm-skipper  (just like a recorded tv "ad-skipper" – but for everytime I say ummmm – which is quite a bit unfortunately ..). But in amongst the umming and ahh’ing – I rattle on a little about media center development, where I’m at with the Big Screen Products and the crappy UK weather.
