With what I believe to be such a small community, we should all try to contribute in some way or another, however we can.
My input will be some suggestions for future discussions:
- Reviews of some of the good cross-development tools (RastaConverter/g2f/MADS etc).
- Back in the day: What was it like being an Atari owner in your country/community? The effect on Poland/Eastern Europe will be a very interesting story... perhaps there could be a specific section for this with full on conversations from different places each month.
- Perhaps some beginners assembly language programming tutorials? This will need to be backed up with some web material.

I like the Europe angle, we'll have to do that.

Episode 3 is up at www.AtariPodcast.com or on iTunes. In it, I interview the founder and publisher of Antic magazine. Lots of other good stuff too.
Listening to James Capparel talk about the magazine was kind of sad. He really seemed full of regret about many things and focused quite a bit on his personal failings.
I for one remember Antic, STart and even Mac Home Journal fondly. Hopefully he realizes there is more to success than money.

Fletch - yeah, the interview was definitely more somber than I expected.

Good interview with James Capparell. Excellent editing and very candid. Just the right length (I also like the fact that the 90 full version is available for download in the show notes).

That was a dynamite interview with Capparell. To me it seemed more wistful than somber. I'm not sure that's regret we're hearing or simply a deep nostalgia for that wonderful time (which I share). His quote about those Atari days is spot on: "a time that's only yesterday, but long gone -- never be repeated."

By the way, my ears lit up when Kevin mentioned Infocom. Interactive fiction was a huge part of my early computing experience. As a matter of fact, one of the first times I ever touched a computer was a terminal at a General Electric plant during a family tour day, and it was running Colossal Caves. I was hooked immediately. I'd love to hear you all discuss Infocom and IF more on the show someday.
Keep up the great work!
(For some reason I'm unable to edit my post above or I would have added that comment to it.)
