Episode 136 – Cracks in the Web UI Powerbase

In this episode, while I’m State-side, Charles is still in Finland. Thus, we start out talking about the wood-burning sauna he’s been using. We then jump into a discussion of Chrome, and then I float the theory that there’s major cracks in the dominance of web-only UIs – what with RIAs and the iPhone.

We wrap up with a special production from Charles.

Episode #135 – Drinking in the Korppoo Sauna

Finland Trip

“Oh JavaScript! We totally talk about JavaScript every night!”

“I like…uh…I’ve quite enjoyed the drinking.”

In this second episode from our Excellent Finnish Adventure, we’re sporadically joined by Kim and Silva (pictured above ). We start out in the sauna.

We talk about wood burning vs. electric saunas, talk about the dance performance we’d seen, Blink, and then launch into what the wives think about the programming life.

We talk about a bunch of other stuff too, like how to escape a moose if needed.
