Shawn King, host and producer of
Your Mac Life, the Internet radio show about all things Mac, announced that he is going on tour. Well, it seems that King — who now lives in my home town of Nashville, TN — will not only be traveling to Mac user groups around the United States, but he’ll also be heading east in a couple of weeks. The Far East, that is.
From March 21-23, Your Mac Life will head to Tokyo, Japan, for the Macworld expo there. He’ll be covering all the news and announcements from one of the biggest Mac shows in the world — and one at which Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be keynoting. As for King’s journeys stateside, you can learn more at
The MUG Center, an online resource for Mac user groups.
Meanwhile, on this week’s Your Mac Life, which is sponsored by Griffin Technology and Marathon Computer, the featured guest is Steven Levy, author of “Insanely Great: The Life and Times of Macintosh…” and the senior editor at Newsweek. Levy has written a timely article about Senator Fritz Hollings’ attempt to pass legislation that the Electronic Frontier Foundation describes as “the far-reaching bill [will…cripple] the American technology industry in response to hysterical entertainment execs, flushing away consumer rights and dumping innovation down the same drain.” Levy will be talking about the article.
Also appearing on Wednesday’s show will be Julio Ojeda-Zapata, reporter for the St Paul Pioneer Press. He’ll be discussing Apple in general. He’ll about what he thinks Apple is doing well and where they aren’t.
What’s more, Wendy Seltzer of ChillingEffects.org will talk about digital and online rights and responsibilities. Chilling Effects is a joint project of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley and University of San Francisco law school clinics.
Of course, my MacCentral compadre, Peter Cohen, will have the latest in Mac gaming news. And no episode of Your Mac Life would be complete without prizes. Given away will products from Griffin Technology and t-shirts from CompanyStuff.com.
You can catch Your Mac Life every Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. (Pacific). You can also join the show’s gang in the chat rooms on the
World Without Borders site
or on the Dal.Net servers on IRC in the #yourmaclife Channel.
