Once a week I do a real-time on-line event called "Tech Talk Thursday" on Twitch at - Streams start at 8pm (20:00) Eastern Time and last about 90 minutes. Please join us!

I talk about networking, scripting, or game design topics. Folks in the Twitch chat can interact, comment, and ask questions. Recently I have become very interested in the way modern web applications are built. To help with that topic, another Twitch streamer, "pxslip", is joining me on these streams. He is a web developer for a large non-profit organization and has worked for an educational institution in the past.

Replays of each stream are available at the link above for 2 weeks after each broadcast. Full replays and excerpts of specific topics may be found on YouTube (links below).

Upcoming: 11/19/2020
