Description

This week on The Signal, Mike and Thomas use Oprah as an excuse to talk about some of their favorite web sites, including Slashdot.org and TMZ.com. Then, they interview Michael Suesserman, the MIX08 Content Owner on topics like: where does the MIX08 content come from, sessions versus panels, the fact that nearly 50% of the content is delivered by third parties, Battlestar Galactica, using “math, science, and dumb luck” to balance sessions, Twitter feedback, the elements of a good session, Michael’s day job with gadgets, and finally, gambling, math, user experience, and the Fairy Forest.

The Signal is a weekly podcast that connects you to behind-the-scenes activity related to MIX08. We’ll interview speakers, attendees, staff, and other notables.
