Hacks: PC’s; Cars; now a Rotary Phone?

For quite some time I’ve been well aware of car hacks (adding neon, paint, and tricking them out) as well as all the fun PC mods doing the same stuff.

Came across this at Boing Boing: some guy over at MAKE magazine has laid out how he’s turned a rotary dial phone in to a GSM cell phone!

I know several people that are watching the trends in hacking and modifying stock products. It’s an extension of the narrowcasting phenomena that is driving us all toward individual products, microcontent (blogs are a great example of this) and other customization. Pretty cool.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
