Chicken Talking

chick-01 Yesterday I was planning to make a short ds106 radio show and podcast with the idea of helping folk starting the new round of ds106. It was in my mind most of the day, and I intended to do a bit of planning and note taking.
Somehow the day got to its end without the planning, the result was pretty rambling. I think I can do better.
So the plan now is:

  • Over the next 2 weeks of bootcamp I’ll do three or four broadcasts, then try for one a week.
  • I’ll aim for 10 minutes, with 10 minutes of planning beforehand.
  • A chicken theme.
  • More information about this in the next episode.

From One Chicken to Another

Moving into week one of the headless ds106 the task for folk who are already in the ds106 house is:

See what you can do to welcome newbies, and consider writing posts about your experience and/or tutorials- such as explaining in more detail how you made your Daily Creates.

I seem to have may name down for helping out if I can and though I’d start with a wee ramble on ds106 radio. I managed to get the server setup and broadcast for about 18 minutes tonight.

Some advice about taking part in ds106 from someone who has, in fact, only produced a few blog posts over 2 or 3 iterations of ds106.
But it gave me a chance to get my hands on the ds106 radio mic, and might be useful to someone…
Have a listen.

With the slightest encouragement I’ll do this again with a better plan.
