It’s App Week on BTR!
Featured guests on today’s episode include Justin Ouellette, Director of Special Projects at Tumblr. He’s here to give us the scoop on a brand new app from Tumblr called Photoset, which helps you “create and share beautiful hi-res photosets on your iPhone or iPad.”
Pretty cool! We created some photo sets ourselves … check ’em out on our Tumblr.
After that, BTR’s own Timothy Dillon talks to Adam Simmons — the CEO of Khrona and the man behind Awesomium. According to its site, Awesomium is “the first Web UI bridge for native applications.” Don’t worry. Timothy Dillon tells us what that means in layman’s terms a little later in the program.
Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Billy Black, Damon Garcia, and Field.
If you’d like to submit a poem to be featured on the air, please send us an mp3 and the text of the poem to thirdeyeweekly dot gmail dot com. Just keep sound quality and next week’s theme (Discover NYC Week!) in mind.
