    I used to read some of Glenn's articles a few years ago when WiFi had just taken off.  I remember the Apple Airport segment he covered in particular, I wanted to get one after I read about it in one of his journal publications.  I was totally excited about wireless networks, but didn't manage to get one until two years ago.  I didn't make the jump to  Mac until 2003, so it took me a while to get on the WiFi band wagen.

    I really like the type of Niche journalism that Glenn covers.  He's one of the best and I can't help but relate to his line of work.  The difference between graphic design and graphic journalism is sometimes very thin.  Anytime I design something for a subject, I can't help but research that subject.  It's very tempting to write about the things I've studied.

    Anyway, great segment, Laura.  It's nice to see you on the show again after almost a week long absence. Smiley

    What happen to the volume level in the last 3 shows? It came over as really low on my side.

    Also... to encourage comments, maybe show comment content (or partially) on front-page (don't have to drill down to read comments).

    Also, make the (+ Reply) button much BIGGER
