DIYAs we all gear up to meet in Orlando for InfoComm 2013, I wanted to take the next few weeks to introduce (or re-introduce) you to our various podcasts. At the end of these introductory blogs I will have an announcement about the future of AVNation. So, stay tuned.
Our first monthly show, and the second show we produced, was the brainchild of George Tucker. Mr. Tucker Tues is well known throughout various message boards and other communal sites. The arena of do-it-yourself Christmas lights was actually what kicked off this program. In the past it has been primarily hosed by George and Johnathan Danforth. Both great guys. Johnathan is heavily involved in the Maker Faire movement. If you ever get the chance to go to one, I highly recommend it. In the past few months we have begun to re-organize our hosts for DIY. The last few episodes have been hosted by Tim Gray, who does a great job.
DIY is precisely what it sounds like. It’s a podcast about do-it-yourself projects. Now, most of them happen to be techno-centric, but not all of them. We have had shows dealing with homebrewing, making your own armor, and 3-D printers. However, most of them have been about technology. Our most recent show dealt with the Raspberry Pi architecture.
Frequent guests are Anthony Zotti, Ben Harris, Rob Jordan, and Michael Francis. These gentlemen come from various places along the DIY circuit. In addition to their various areas of expertise, they are almost all AV professionals as well. So, it’s a nice fit for AVNation.
If you are into making things on your own, or tinkering around the house, give DIY a listen. Let us know what you think.
