    Hi Calli,

    I’m thinking about setting up a website for my class this year and was hoping that students could eventually create podcasts to post on the website. My question is: I know that you do a lot of advertising for squarespace and I am looking at using them to design my website but they only allow uploading of 20mb files. How do you guys deal with your podcast files?? Where do you store them?? Any suggestions?

    Thanks again for doing the show – I always enjoy hearing about all the new things in the tech world

    Hello Cali,
    thank you and your team for another great episode of GB.

    I guess progress makes victims that have to be discontinued. First Symbian, then Meego and now WebOS. Shame but maybe someone smart picks them up and who knows maybe develop them further. It’s nice to dream, right?!

    I don’t think it’s such a good idea that the Amazon forrest is being archived by Google Street View. It should have been untouched. After all it’s only one of the last places where rare species live and they shouldn’t be disturbed. What can I say, I love animals, sorry!

    Take care and greetings,

    P.S: Keep up the good work!
