IEEE's Glenn Zorpette Hits Trifecta at ABM Awards

One of the regular hosts on IEEE Spectrum Radio on IT Conversations is Glenn Zorpette. He just won three awards from the American Broadcast Media for this article on Re-engineering Iraq. He also produced some audio from the piece which we featured on IT Conversations. I enjoyed both the article and the show on IT Conversations. It's been one of the most popular shows in that series. If you missed it, go back and listen. I think you'll enjoy it enough to want to go read the article.

IEEE Spectrum Radio Shorts

The edition of IEEE Spectrum Radio I just published is a small experiment. Some of the features we get from Spectrum are shorter than our normal format. I decided we'd combine them into a single show. For example, this show is only 23 minutes long and contains four short programs on Sudoku, exoskeletons, housefly aeronatics, and Microsoft's MyLifeBits project. We'll probably do this about once a month. Let me know whether you like it or not.

Reconstructing Iraq's Power Grid

I just finished listening to the second installment of the new IEEE Spectrum Radio program on IT Conversations. This piece, Reconstructing Iraq's Power Grid is excellent and very interesting. It's not political--but the size and importance of the job is eye opening. These shows are not as easy as just republishing what IEEE sends us. This show, for example, was pieced together from three separate segments and Paul Figgiani did a great job of rearranging lead-ins, music and so on to make it seem like a connected show. If you're wondering if every show in this series is somehow

Launching IEEE Spectrum Radio on IT Conversations

Today I published the first show from a new series that we're launching on IT Conversations, IEEE Spectrum Radio. If you're familiar with computers or electronics you're familiar with IEEE and have probably seen Spectrum, IEEE's flagship publication. IEEE Spectrum Radio is an audio edition of selected stories from Spectrum. When we were getting this going, I listened to about a dozen shows and was really impressed with the content and the production values. I'm excited to welcome IEEE to IT Conversations and I'm looking forward to sharing more of the shows I loved with you. As always, contact

IEEE Spectrum Radio

IEEE Spectrum has a podcast that is produced from material in the magazine. The latest show, for example, is about the Spectrum article on UTOPIA, that I commented on last week. I don't like the flash player since it makes it hard to link directly to the specific show I'm interested in, but the content is pretty good and professionally produced. This would be a great addition to IT Conversations.
