Amber and I have decided to take a hiatus with net@nite. Amber's very busy at the moment with her TV shows and Command-N and it's tough for both of us to keep producing the show Sunday nights. We do want to keep working together, though, and are looking at other projects we can put on TWiT.
Meanwhile, I do have sponsorship commitments for the show, and I know we need something covering the web on the network, so I'm looking at ways to keep it going either alone or with a new co-host, and possibly with a change in format. Stay tuned.
Also Windows Weekly will be missing a couple of episodes due to travel. Paul and I will be back with a new show on October 12.
Amber MacArthur and I will be making a personal appearance this week in Vancouver, BC on behalf of Future Shop.
We'll be debating LCD vs Plasma and the Future of Television this Thursday, 27 September, from 11:30a-12:30p at the Futureshop store, 1740 West Broadway in Vancouver. The CBC's Tod Maffin will be moderating (and keeping us from throwing any punches).
All the TWiTs have been working hard this year so I thought they should take some time off this weekend. As a result there will be no TWiT or net@nite this week. We'll be back with new shows next Sunday though. Have a great long weekend!
As you may have noticed, I have changed TWiT.tv into a read-only web site, without logins and commenting (much as Alex has done at pixelcorps.tv).
It's not that I don't welcome your comments, but I'm having all sorts of difficulties with the software over cookies and log-ins. Add to that the difficulty of moderating thousands of entries for spam, and I think you'll see that it's impractical for now to keep things as they are. At some point I hope to find a Drupal developer I can afford (Lullabot is way beyond my means these days) and I'll be able to update this site to Drupal 5 and restore some of the interactivity. Until then we'll have to live with a simpler design.
