As mentioned here yesterday, this week marks nine years since the first episode of the Tokyo Calling podcast. In this episode, in addition to playing some old time music and a 1963 clip from Jean Shepherd, I played the first mention anywhere of Dr. Nakamatsu’s TDM/7300 from November 2004.
One of the exciting developments from my recent week in Virginia was to meet up with an electronics enthusiast who says he might be able to build a working version of Dr. Nakamatsu’s satellite radio receiver thing from the schematic diagrams I’ve been carrying for all these years. With luck, we might be able to talk about this in the future and hopefully play some of the amazing radio signal the device is reputed to be able receive. Stay tuned.
An attempt was also made to explain my take on the recent reclaim craze that has been sweeping the web. It was a Monday morning brainstorming session, one week ago today, in UMW’s ThinkLab that enabled me to finally begin to think I might understand what all the hubbub is, bub. The problem, I’m not yet up to the task of explaining it in any coherent way – as evidenced in the recording.
Fortunately, Jim Groom framed the issue and it’s various facets in his usual effervescent way, just today. It is certainly worth checking out. And if you want a real good time, check out the double-barreled backhand compliments for Jim’s post and other matters in commentary at OLDaily.
