IAPM66: Pirates and Designers

In this Episode my friend Jen shares some insite into the Design Copyright discussion. Jen also posted more about it here.

I would love to hear you thoughts on this issue.

Sadly, this show is very short. I am having a hard time finding my voice as I switch from an older computer setup to a new one. Still trying to get comfortable with new computer/mic. I think I will be back in full swing again by the end of the summer.

ADDED:

Oh yeah… I have started to play promos for other knitting podcasts again. This week I played one for KnitScape.

IAPM61:Walking and Talking

On todays episode I do a little catching up…

I announce the winners of the Annie Get Your Needles giveaway.

I review It Itches and Knitting for Good.

I open a drawing to Get the word out about @GuidoS Dreamy Maryland Sheep and Wool After Party. If you post to a blog or twitter an announcement about the party with a link to the event page today or tommorrow and then let me know about it in the comments I will enter you int a drawing for a grab bag of 3 fun prizes. I need to get a head count together for Monday so I am doing what I can to get people resgistered for the party.

Also.. I share my views on second wave feminism and the sisterhood and how this makes me feel really disinfranchised and how I feel knititing is a family of everyone… oh yeah… I read some email too…

All this and the sounds of a beautiful spring Saturday morning in Boston on todays show
