Talkcast tonight, 10 pm ET: Thanks, giving
It's Sunday, and it's time for the TUAW talkcast! Tonight, we're looking ahead to a very special week -- it's the US holiday of Thanksgiving on Thursday, which coincides with the first day/second night of Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights. Since this alignment hasn't ever really happened before, and (in the absence of changes to either the US or Jewish calendars) won't happen again for thousands of years, we take this unique opportunity to wish you all a very happy Thanksgivukkah.
In the spirit of the holidays, we're planning to run down several of the things we're thankful for this year, and also look ahead to the unofficial kickoff of shopping season on Black Friday. Join us at 10pm ET, won't you?
Thanks to the fine folks at Fuze, we're using Fuze Meeting to record the show (rather than the legacy Talkshoe system). This should let everyone listen in live -- and, if you want, raise your hand as you would in the Talkshoe room to get unmuted and chime in.
You can join the call in progress (meeting # is 20099010) at 10 pm ET from any computer via this link; if you download the Mac or Windows Fuze clients ahead of time, you'll get better audio and a slicker experience. Just click the phone icon to join the audio once you're in.
Using an iPhone or iPad? Grab the native clients from the App Store and get busy. (Even Android users can join the party.) Still feel like using the conventional phone dial-in? Just call 775-996-3562 and enter the meeting number 20099010, then press #.
While the Fuze web and native clients have a chat channel, we'd like to reserve that for host participants, requests to talk and other real-time alerts... so the full-on chat for the show will appear in this very post at 10 pm tonight. You'll need Twitter, Facebook or Chatroll credentials to participate in the chat. We'll remind everyone to check back in at that time.
Your patience and forbearance with our new tech is appreciated in advance. For the time being, the podcast feed of the show will continue to originate from Talkshoe and should be there within 24-36 hours. See you tonight!
