Maccast Apple 10.16.2014 Event Live Chat

Written by: Adam Christianson

Categories: Cool Stuff, Live Event

If you’d like to hang out and chat with other members of the Maccast community during today’s live streaming of Apple’s 10.16.2014 ‘It’s been way too long’ live event, we’ve set up a live chat here.

The official stream starts October 16th at 10 a.m. PDT, but we’ll be hanging out before hand (and likely after), so feel free to come join us.

The system is an IRC based chat and uses a Flash based embedded client (which may take some time to load), so it requires Flash to be installed. If you prefer, you can also connect using an IRC client of your choice to irc.geekshed.net port 6667. I use Colloquy on my Mac and they have an iOS version available. The channel(room) to use is #maccast.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. In this special episode of the Maccast I sit down with Avram Miller. Avram is a tech industry pioneer probably best known for his time spent at Intel where he helped cofound their venture capital arm. Through his work Avarm has been influential in shaping the face of many of the technologies we use and continue to develop today. Most notably Avarm Miller played a key role in the development of the cable modem and other broadband technologies. In 1984, while president of Franklin Computer Corporation, Avram and his team developed an Apple clone and challenged Steve Jobs & Co. over their right to produce and sell the product and bring it to market. Recently Avarm became a Mac switcher and I had the privilege to sit down with him and chat about his experiences, history, and this latest chapter in his tech life.
