Issue 2: Audio Edition (beta)

After the success of issue 1’s audio edition, we’d like to ask for your help in creating audio recordings for issue 2. All you need is a microphone and a copy of Audacity!

The process is going to be similar to how we compiled our first issue. Briefly:

  1. If you’ve got a copy of issue 2 (it’s downloadable here, take a look through and see if there’s anything you’d like to record. If you’ve not got a copy, check out the Google Drive link below.
  2. Leave a comment saying what you’re going to record and we’ll mark it off on the list.
  3. Record your article(s) and save the output as Flac (this enables us to encode each recording more consistently). If bandwidth/space is going to be an issue, then ogg/mp3 is fine too.
  4. When you’ve finished your recording, let us know in the comments. If you’re happy with Google Drive, you can upload the audio to here:
  5. We’ll compile the recordings and post an update when they’re available.

Here’s a list of the main articles in issue 2:

  • Welcome, News/Opinion, Letters, Show reports (Graham is doing this)
  • Group test: text editors (Graham has recorded this)
  • Code Android, Javascript and Python
  • Interview: Carrie Anne Philbin, Clive Beale & Ben Nuttall
  • Munich switches to Linux (recorded by Stuart Langridge)
  • Spotlight on Young Rewired State (IanW is recording this)
  • FAQ: Docker (KentGeek is doing this)
  • Sysadmin
  • Cloudadmin (IanW has done this!)
  • FOSSpicks
  • Learn how to file bug reports (Charles has recorded this already)
  • Build a Raspberry Pi arcade machine
  • Make KDE even more awesome (Geddes has done this!)
  • Grace Hopper and the UNIVAC (Ray Benitez is recording this)
  • Conquer UEFI
  • Python: Building fractals
  • Key distribution explained (Stilvoid is recording this)
  • Your first kernel module
  • Using Filezilla and an introduction to SSH
  • /dev/random (Joe Ressington will record this)

As before, we’ve skipped over the news, distro updates, gaming and reviews as they’re a little out of date.

Issue 2 is going to be released CC BY-SA around Christmas time, and we’ll try to compile the audio edition for the same time.

Thanks again for all your help!
