A .net Magazine Podcast

Paul Boag

I have just come out of a meeting with Dan Oliver, the editor of .net magazine and I wanted to share with you our plans for the future of the Practical Web Design Podcast.

As you will have probably gathered from my previous post things are changing at Practical Web Design. Fundamentally the Practical Web Design Magazine will be replaced by .net (although the PWD name will be kept in the US.).

Today’s meeting with Dan was to discuss what we were going to do with the Practical Web Design Podcast, which has recently proved incredibly popular and features highly in iTunes.

My feeling was that a .net version of the show required more than me simply talking about web design. The depth required for a publication like .net is more than a single person can provide.

I am therefore pleased to announce a new format for the show as of mid January. Instead of the magazine style format used to date (with a number of short segments) we are going to have a bi-weekly round table. In each episode we will discuss the issues of the day relating to web design as well as questions and comments submitted by you the listener.

The panel will change on a regular basis. It will be made up of a well know names in the industry as well as new faces who can bring a fresh perspective to the table.

I will continue to host and produce the show so unfortunately you don’t get to avoid listening to me that easily. However, at least this way we can have experts in various fields rather than me making stuff up as I go along!
