If anyone has wondered why I've been quiet, it's because I've been working on a few things that haven't been ready to talk about yet. I can tell you about one of those things now!

I've been working on an audio piece about the new world of job hunting online, and it's now confirmed that it will be in this Sunday's episode of Spark, on CBC Radio One. The show airs at 1pm local time if you want to catch it live; you can also stream it from one of the regional stations at 1pm their time by heading to cbc.ca/radio and selecting the appropriate station. Plus, it will be available for on-demand streaming later...i'll post the link when it's up and active!

You can also head over to my blog, at http://globalhermit.com on Sunday - I'll have full interviews with the people I chatted with for the piece, because I was only able to fit in a fraction of the great info I got.

Very excited about this!

You still haven't sent me a copy of your hour of power [on something other than cassette]. But this is good. Thumbs-up.

It was a good run, but I'm now on the job market again. If anyone in Toronto is looking for a techie writer/video producer, give me a holler?

Apple's launch of iBooks Textbook today is a great step forward but it's not without some interim problems. Some of my thoughts are at the link below.

Yes, definitely the case if you use iBooks Author. The big question is if the publishers can take the same CONTENT and publish it to another store, using another distilling too like, say, InDesign's EPUB distilling. If they've created an exclusive licensing agreement for books in the iBooks Textbooks store, then there's no alternate source for those on a PC or Android dev.
