A rather laid back podcast to reunite us after a long break. Adam has no excuse however next week.

This episode we talk about WWDC, Instacast, Once Magazine, Paul Noble along with learning a language and Jonathan runs through his list of the podcasts he listens to. While an After Show is mentioned, there isn't one, the recording doo hickey wasn't running at 88mph and we didn't have a bolt of lighting handy either so what we talked about wasn't recorded, but it will be saved for a future show.

Show Notes can be found at jonathanjk.com

Episode Music by Quinton (Radiohead Kid A and OK Computer in 8bit).

SPOILERS are in this episode. Duh!

"Don't get up there's more" said the usher after the movie had ended.

Jonathan thought at the last moment; that Adam is visiting and there are five of us together who set out to watch this movie. Why not celebrate the awesomeness that is the 'Avengers' and do a special roundtable discussion about it. We've come straight from the cinema (whole 2 minutes from my apartment) and unloaded into the laptop we're surrounding. This is very raw and uncut so expect plenty of spoilers and hilarity coming from us. You have been warned. Considering it was recorded with just the MacBook Pro mic, it's pretty good, enjoy!

Welcome to our fourth podcast, in this episode Alex and myself discuss Instagram; with it's recent purchase by Facebook and Instagram's growing role within Photography and Photojournalism. We also spend discussing Alex's move to Canada and what are his first impressions and we reflect on KONY2012 and compare its media attention to similar projects (like Aaron Huey's: American Natives Prisoners of War TED talk & TED wish) that haven't been given the same attention they should deserve, especially when they are closer to home.

Welcome to our third show, a movie centric episode. Journalism and photography is on hold until Alex finds time to escape his new life in Canada.

This time the show mostly consists of Adam trying to break me into some movie news and discovers I won't get riled up. We follow up with some previous topics covered in our last episode and I welcome Adam to the present after he discusses his new iPhone 4S purchase, show my disaproval for missing out on the great deal that was NeverWinter Nights 2 for 69p on the Mac App Store and unbelievably some people still haven't seen Star Wars so what order should they really view the saga?

2 - Adam Gives Me Gold

 

Our second episode, but Adam's first, I break him into the format we're setting up, I give Adam the floor and along the way we open up by discussing Kony2012 and some of its criticism, the new iPad, our first iPods and Apple Macintoshes, why pulling away from Windows wasn't pain free for me touching on the gaming scene at the turn of the century. 

We look back on PC classics such as Baldur's Gate, Half Life, Total Annihilation, Diablo, Starcraft and development delays with Starcraft 3. We also revisit Mario through Mario Portal. Having conquered gaming we discuss the Japanese version of the new Avengers trailer, then going seriously off topic with our movies into discussing who could play Steve Jobs in the movie about him.

Rounding off with mentioning Kottke.org, TV shows I don't watch and I assumed Adam had used Pixelmator sufficiently enough to tell me how he feels about it.

In brief, a crazy throughly geeky episode.
