Daniel Andrlik lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia. By day he manages product teams. The rest of the time he is a podcast host and producer, writer of speculative fiction, a rabid reader, and a programmer.

Just a quick post to let you know that I appeared on the latest episode of the Creepy Sleepy Show Podcast, where DHP, Greg and myself discuss the new Radiohead album, titled In Rainbows. In particular we focus on Radiohead’s digital distribution, what this means in the music industry and our experience as music consumers.

I do have to apologize for an error I make in the show. I mistakenly described the LAME mp3 codec listening tests as a comparison against vinyl, when I meant to say it was a comparison between a 320 kbps mp3 against the original CD. In my defense, I had just foolishly clicked on a link that Warren Ellis had put on his blog, which was so horrific that I had to restart my brain in order to retain my sanity. Just a word of advice to all of you, when you see a strange looking link on his site, think carefully before you look.

Anyway, it was a fun show and hopefully I’ll have chance to join DHP again soon. You can download/listen the show here.

Just another quick post that Dan and I just recently did a short podcast on Mahalo. Our contention is that Mahalo, while ostensibly a search engine, has far more in common with Wikipedia than anything else.
A List Apart: Reviving Anorexic Web Writing

This is a fantastic article, that along with its companion piece, it covers how the influence of business on the web has been reduced from writing to "zombified copywriting." The author indicates that this is because so many people writing for the web are not writers, but rather engineers, secretaries and designers.
