It started about a quarter to eight in the evening of October 16th. Just an innocent question on Slack to someone about to roll into one unusually hazy weekend.
This is being written in the evening of October 22nd. A new technology related podcast in Swedish exists as a direct result of that Slack message. It's called Björeman // Melin, and if anyone listens and has even half as much fun as we had recording it it will be a win.
Come to think of it, I think we won already. Listeners or not, it was great fun to just sit down and talk deeply geeky stuff. Our first episode covered the Amiga and BeOS, and right there at the very end of the episode we realized the next one has to be about NeXT. The most serendipitous cliffhanger ever, I would say.
I am very excited to see where this goes. I would not be at all surprised if I look back after ten episodes and find the podcast much the same as the very first episode.
We have no deep ambitions. Just talk about fun stuff and have a good time. The evening unwinding of two geeks, if you will.
I think we can do something good within that box.
