NOA: Beergardens and Mobile Devices

Limited Edition Novell Green BackpackI have previously mentioned that we have an upcoming episode of Novell Open Audio featuring Holger Macht and Timo Hoenig from SUSE’s “Team Mobile Devices.” Well, it’s finally online.

In a tip of the hat to the guys over at The Linux Link Tech Show, this edition involves beer. We recorded from Anderland, a fine beergarden in beautiful Nuremberg. Please consider the background noise on this one simply part of the ambience. Oh, and for our Provo-based listeners: yes, that is a baby crying in the background, and, yes, people commonly bring their infants to beergardens.

We remind you that the online listener survey closes on Saturday, so if you haven’t taken the survey yet, please do! We will award two limited edition green Novell backpacks–possibly stuffed with some other cool schwag–to two of the respondents. We’ll announce who wins them after September 30th.

  1. Don’t worry, soon the oktoberfest will start in germany 😉

  2. No relation to the post, just a recent lurker looking forward to catching you at Ohio Linux Fest.

  3. This is the first episode that I’ve been irritated from the start with. I had to turn it off after Erin’s comment of ‘I’m just here for the beer’.

    If you’re at a beergarden for the interview, great. If you want to comment on the beer, fine. But I don’t need to hear you going on about ‘being here for the beer’ and a soundbite of a bottle opening and pouring. It just screams of ‘We want to be like all the other kids on the block’ and does nothing for the show.

    Kids drink beer as it’s ‘cool’ to do that. Most adults drink beer to enjoy it. Podcasters drink beer and drone on about it during thier shows becouse they think it’ll attract the kids.

    Your show has been about delivering information. While I’m sure it would be fun to sit and chat with you over a beer, we really don’t need all the sound effects and commentary on the show, especially during the interviews.

  4. Chuck (3):
    Sorry you were irritated. We have no interest in trying to attract the kids. Let’s see if anyone else shared your reaction to this one.

  5. I can’t imagine someone could listen to Novell Open Audio for more than a few episodes and NOT have a sense of humor. 🙂

    Maybe it’s a culture thing, but where I live kids don’t listen to NOA or drink beer.

    I just happened to have went to a German beer garden here in Cincinnati right before this episode came out, so it really fit my mood.

    Keep up the good work (and it was nice to meet you at the OH LinuxFest).
