First Beta Participant Roundtable – August 15, 530p, Pacific

We’re going to do our first beta participant roundtable on August 15 at 530p Pacific. It will be done by teleconference.

The topic for that call will be any technical problems you’ve seen or had and your thoughts on the initial setup process, etc. It will also be a chance for you to ask ANY questions about those topics to myself and a few participants from Casgle.

Please make it if you possibly can. There will be gift certificate drawings during the call to increase participation 😉

Please let us know here, via comment, if you can make the call. We’ll be emailing you individually with your access information.

Hang In There Beta Testers

Hang in there beta testers.

I could tell you funny little, but very geeky, stories about what has happened along the way of this beta.

We’ve learned a number of great things here about the product, and user rollout, so the “intent” of the beta from this end has been very exciting.

However, you haven’t seen any action yet and we’ll be fixing that this week.

Hang in there beta testers.

No, Podium Doesn’t Work With Zune (At This Point)

A number of you have asked if Podium works with the Zune MP3 Player.

At this point, the answer is no.

I’ve communicated with some at Microsoft our desire to work with the product but haven’t heard back with any help yet.

If anyone at Microsoft would like to help us make Zune work with Podium, please let us know.
