Video: Podcast Double End Recording with MP2 Transfer for Multitrack Editing

NMI Member and longtime fellow podcaster, George Starcher has posted several great technical videos to the New Media Interchange Community Site and I will be highlighting them here in the blog, too.

This first one deals with recording a podcast “double ender” — a remote interview where each person records there end of the conversation and then it is assembled in an audio editor to create a high quality interview.

George is a fellow member of the the Friends in Tech podcasting group, too.

Friends in Tech present A Geek Christmas Story

I have been a member of Friends in Tech, a technology podcasting group, for years and each year we put together several holiday specials specifically for our “Geek-minded” listeners. This year we produced a geekified parody of “A Christmas Story”.

Over the years we have developed a workflow that allows everyone to record their parts separately and then several members, acting as the editors, assemble the final production with music and sound effects. This allows us to put together a complete presentation in just a few weeks, even though we are scattered all over the country.

We also bring in special guest voices from the podcasting community to “share the love” among our fellow new media producers. If you are looking for a project for your group, an audio play can be a great place to start. It energizes your people and also reaches out to the community to increase your visibility. — Douglas

WordPress 2.9 upgrade fails on GoDaddy shared server(s)

(Update 12/19/2009 – 1341 PST – Received links on how to export and import database into new 5.0 version of the database. Working with some knowledgeable others to help me do the process.)

(Update 12/19/2009 – 1024 PST – Looks as if my main database is still in mySQL 4.0 format although GoDaddy support 5.0. Probably never had need to upgrade DB since I moved there. Support email sent in on how to upgrade database)

Hmmm. Upgrading your WordPress installations is typically a part of good system management, but when trying to install the latest version of WordPress 2.9 this morning I received the following error.

Upgrade WordPress
Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.9.zip.

Unpacking the update.

The update cannot be installed because WordPress 2.9 requires MySQL version 4.1.2 or higher. You are running version 4.0.27.

Installation Failed

I am not sure if this effects all of GoDaddy’s shared servers or just mine, but it could effect a lot of people if their default install of mySQL is this version.

What are you experiencing with WordPress 2.9 installs on shared servers?

Sampler: Tracy Pattin and Voicebank.net’s VoiceRegistry Blog

One of the great uses of New Media is education. Not just standard, school and college-based education, but genuine, person-to-person, master-to-apprentice-style learning. In this vein, I present NMI Member, Tracy Pattin and one of her excellent shows, Voice Registry Blog and Podcast. In this show, Tracy focuses on the realities of voiceover work by interviewing some of the biggest names in the industry.

In this show, Tracy interviews Bob Bergen and Bill Holmes on physicalizing while performing voiceover.

Check out this sample show and then subscribe to the blog directly or using iTunes.
