Greetings from Tanzania! My forty-third Podcast is up. In this one, Carl and I were fortunate get an interview with the primary blogger of LifeHacker, Gina Trapani. Gina has a book coming out this month called Lifehacker: 88 Tech Trips to Turbocharge your Day. I knew some folks at the publisher and was sent a "galley" version, and it's a great book, and a fine gift idea for the nerd in your life. We did a show on Lifehacks a while back, but in this one we learn about the origin of the word, get ideas for more hacks from Gina, learn how to make FireFox Extensions, and how to blog for a living. Thanks to Gina for her time. Check out the LifeHacker blog, it's in my Essentials list and I read it every day.

Links from the show are also always on the show site, although this show had no links to speak of. Do also remember the archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

There's a $100 off CodeSmith coupon for Hanselminutes listeners - it's coupon code HM100. Spread the word, now's the time to buy. This coupon is good for the CodeSmith Professional With 1 Year Premier Support option.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
