Daniel Andrlik
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 mention that I’m a guest on today’s episode of the Creepy Sleepy Show Podcast. We discuss the recent HDDVD Digg Storm controversy, Digg’s incompetence at proper PR and the differences between traditional media and social news. I’m always a little uncomfortable being presented as a tech expert, but it was a fun show and a really interesting conversation.

You should check it out. I’d love to hear your thoughts on these issues, particularly to the way social news sites like Digg are changing the way we consume information.

Great piece from Lev Grossman on the radical changes that the codex introduced into reading, specifically the ability to interact with the text in a non-linear manner. He makes a valid point that e-readers make similar interaction a clumsy affair.
