I’m On Sirius XM

My friend Jordan Crook and I are now on Sirius XM channel 102, called Indie, where we run TechCrunch Radio, a live pitch-off that we run on the radio. It’s a load of fun. You can listen to it on Tuesdays at 6pm Eastern and they play it again every few days. The next time you can hear it is at 6pm on Thursday.

Wow, Mosh Is Great

Mosh is a mobile shell that maintains your current state no matter what happens to the connection. For example, you can leave a tab in your terminal program open to a server you want to access regularly and just open and close your laptop or device willy nilly.

You can grab it here to try it out. You’ll be pleased.
