    I CAN DIG IT – telethon shirts

    by
    I just set up 2 t-shirts on my CafePress account, to raise moolah for the DS106 Radio telethon. I added “profit” to each shirt – $9US for the men’s, and $8US for the women’s (the women’s shirt is more expensive, but I wanted them both to be the same price). Buy a shirt at $24.99US ...

    I can dig it

    by
    I tried to set up a new shirt at my CafePress shop, as a fundraiser thing for DS106Radio, but CafePress keeps eating the thing before actually saving it. Hopefully I can get this set up soon…

    ds106 campfire jam

    by
    When Alan was in town, we played some music (made some noise) and streamed it to DS106 Radio, where DrGarcia recorded some of it. She later rebroadcast it, where Bryan recorded a copy and then jammed along with us. Very cool stuff. It’s extremely rough (well, at least my part), but so much fun. #ds106radio ...

    kind of blue (about copyright law)

    by
    Duncan Davidson, a photographer I’ve admired for years (he’s one of the guys behind the dailyshoot project), wrote up a fantastic description of the recent Kind of Bloop/Blue photograph copyright brouhaha. A photographer, Jay Maisel, takes an iconic photograph of Miles Davis. It’s an amazing photograph. It’s used for the cover of Davis’ Kind of […]

    northern voice 2011 jam session

    by
    the after-conference gatherings at northern voice have always tended to be rather musical, so this year Grant went out and booked a rehearsal studio for us to jam without annoying neighbours. The Sanctuary, in East Van, is an incredible rehearsal space. I only recorded a small clip from the 11 hours (!) spent in The […]

    on acceptance in freeform

    by
    Yesterday, Jim was rolling out an all-requests show on DS106, based on the theme “love and loss.” I caught part of the show, and it was pretty amazing. Then, some requests came in and I complained. I was a jerk. I apologize for complaining about the content of a user-powered freeform Internet radio phenomenon. For ...

    DS106 ringtone. can you dig it?

    by
    The intro for DS106 Radio has become pretty much burned into my brain. I don’t know who made the clip, but they took a segment of Cyrus’s speech from The Warriors, and smushed it into some marching band music (?). The intro bumper from the best damned freeform internet radio station on the planet. Can ...

    Guitarcasting with Radio DS106

    by
    I had a bit of a duh/ahah! moment this evening. We’ve been messing around with Nicecast to broadcast audio from Skype and iTunes, and it hit me that it would be able to pick up sound from GarageBand just fine, too. Broadcasting live guitar jams over Radio DS106. I plugged my guitar into my amp, ...

    on broadcasting to radio #ds106

    by
    The Radio #ds106 phenomenon has totally changed how I think of social presence in a course experience. There is something magic (and yet not magic) about a bunch of people coming together to play and collaborate in various forms, just for shits and giggles. It’s awesome in so many ways. It’s also a little like ...
