Well, it’s time for me to hitch myself to the Web 2.0 bandwagon and start a podcast. The PDF Developer Junkie Podcast will be for, and partially by, people developing PDF solutions based on Adobe Acrobat. My goal is to have the podcast be audience driven, kind of like a radio call in show. Here’s how it’ll work (at least in “Version 1.0”). Email me a recorded question in MP3 format and I’ll answer it on the podcast and post an article on the topic. Once I’ve received enough questions, I’ll launch this thing and keep them coming as long as it proves useful to all of you. All questions that fit the criterion below will be considered. I’d like to keep this fun too so the answers may get slightly irreverent, don’t take offense.
Here’s the basic (revised) rules:
- Questions should be related to Acrobat or PDF development. Here’s the test. If you’re pretty sure the answer will involve writing code, I want to hear it. If you want to ask how to use a feature, try asking here instead.
- Questions might not be answered completely. I am the “Technical Evangelist”… not “Technical Support”. If I can’t answer the question completely, I can get you pointed in the right direction but that’s about it.
- No hyperbole. No rants. Remember, I get the final edit and I have lots of silly sound bites I can drop in.
- Please try to keep the question to under a minute. If your question takes longer than that to ask, you need a consultant, not a podcast.
- In the interest of keeping the subject matter as broad as possible, I may aggregate some questions if they sound about the same.
- I’ll only accept MP3s recorded at 160 kbps. Use whatever tools you are most comfortable with.
How to submit a question.
Attach your MP3 to this email and hit send.
What happens next:
I’ll listen to your question, edit it down if necessary and email you if I need clarification on something. Depending on the number of questions that come in, I’ll decide on a launch date and post that information when I have it.
