  1. Paul,

    Do you have an RSS feed for this? I would really like to load it into my Podcast Ready account so I don’t miss them– had trouble finding the RSS when the 1st eppy came out…

  2. RE: Kathy Sierra and death threats

    It bothers me that the death threats as “cyberbullying.”

    I suppose my concern might be categorized as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, but stick with me.

    Cyberbullying is a serious issue –no doubt about it.

    Death threats seem a step above bullying.

    Shouldn’t there be a different word for this kind of ultra-serious kind of adult misuse of technology?

    What’s the legal term for threatening someone’s life offline?
