    Isn’t that (old) dude on the left the techno guy from the P-G?? But you’re right, they look like they should be on Old McDonald’s farm somewhere out in the boondocks.

    I thought it was Wilford and we was going to talk about the Diabetes

    Technology (circa 1910) you know…black candlestick telephones, Victrolas and Nickeldeons. They are discussing whether Marconi deserved the 1909 Nobel for his work in wireless telegraphy (aka radio.)

    hey, when did the pg+ hire Bartles and Jaymes? and arent they somehow related to Mrs. Zima?

    Novos51, I thought about Mr. Brimley right away: Quaker Oats – ‘Its the right thing to do and the tasty way to do it’

    Why weren’t hip hop,handguns and hookers a multiple choice option?

    Are we developing a pattern with the P-G here? Are we beginning to understand why their product is no longer delivered much beyond the shadow of the fountain at the Point? If this is one of America’s Great Newspapers, then Ginny should hang onto this gig because there won’t be any American newspapers soon, great or not.

    Hee hee! This one short post contains so much funny. I’m so glad to have you back. On a somber note, agree with butcher’s dog on the PG. The issue today was as thin as a pancake, and the Lawrenceville fashion article was just absurd.

    Sorry to interrupt this technology broadcast but the 1950’s called and they want their pocket protectors, suspenders, slide rules, eyeglasses and the 8.5×11 paper back immediately.

    the production quality looks like something I did in high school in the mid 80’s – this is just sad.

    I would have guessed that they were the brand-new PG fashion editors…..

    Wow I only made it 1:30 in and had to stop. Made my eyes and ears bleed!

    Yes, this is amusing. But looks are deceiving. My two colleagues — Ced Kurtz (he of bushy white stache) and Tim Dunham, who *does* wear suspenders (no belt) every day — in fact know a massive amount about technology. They have been at it for years. They work as hard as anyone can, adapting a mass-media institution to the digital whatever we’re in and headed toward.

    LMAO!!! Is this some sort of joke?

    What’s not to love about these guys? You can tell they’re as nice as they come. And that computers make them happier than a japanese schoolgirl in a Hello Kitty store.

    I like the cut of their jib.

    I don’t know the dude on the right, but the one on the left is Chris Fennimore, or my name isn’t Nancy Polinski.

    When did the Amish get their own public access channel?

    I gotta go with technology, or lack there of. Where is the PG going? I love the paper product myself.

    This post is an absolute pleasure, a small but delectable piece of dark chocolate after dinner. And the comments are the garnish.

    Oh, Ginny, I love you.

    (P.S: I work with tech geeks and believe it or not, these guys would fit right in!)

    Don’t laugh: these guys helped me reprogram my punchcard loom.

    Off subject, Ginny. But do you have some way of checking in with the McMutrie sisters in Haiti? Their Mom used to work for me and since hearing about the orphanage they run we have been giving some thought to adopting from them….

    Being in technology myself, those men resemble a lot of people I know in the industry. Once a geek, always a geek.

    Unrelated, I too was wondering about the McMutire sisters and the orphanage. Since news broke about the earthquake in Haiti I have been keeping them in my thoughts. Have you heard from them at all? Do they blog?

    Looks like the Picksburgh version of Big Jim McBob and Billy Sol Hurok. That pirogy blowed up real good!

    I used to be the third in the Tech Triumvirate in that weekly videocast. Ced and Tim are very smart guys and we had a lot of fun doing those videos. We got good feedback from the four or five people who stumbled upon our show, and I will miss being a part of it. It was the high point of my work week.

    FOURTEEN MINUTES FOR A PODCAST? I made it to 1:04. That was more painful than the time I accidentally rammed a stick under my fingernail.
