Friday: The Geek2Mac Show

I’ve been invited to be the first guest on a new Internet show based in the U.K. called Geek2Mac, which will take place this Friday (June 23, 2006) at 8 p.m. British Summer Time (BST)/12:00 noon Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). (More show details here.)

I don’t quite know how to categorize this thing; it’s sort of a mixture of a teleconference, Webcast, podcast, and radio talk show. Basically, participants can call in to listen to this show live via Skype (free) or regular telephone (customary charges apply); there will also be some basic images available—sort of like PowerPoint/Keynote slides—over the Web as the show goes on. During the first hour, I’ll be giving a presentation on Mac maintenance, based on Take Control of Maintaining Your Mac. In the second hour, there’ll be a Q&A session where anyone can ask a question of me or the show’s two co-hosts, as well as some giveaways, a prerecorded interview with Tonya Engst, and various other things relating to Mac troubleshooting and maintenance. Participants will also get discounts on Take Control ebooks. Afterward, the show will also be available as a podcast, but of course then you miss all the interactivity, prizes, and whatnot.

To join the call, use Skype to call +99008275743445 (no earlier that 7:45 p.m. BST) or dial one of the following numbers and enter conference room #5743445:

  • US: 1-712-432-4000
  • UK: 0870 119 2350
  • France: 0826 100 266
  • Germany: 01805 00 7620

If you’ve always wondered about the best ways to maintain your Mac, if you have other Mac troubleshooting questions, or if you’d like to ask me about any other Mac-related matter, please join us on Friday!
