On May 5th, 2012, the Day in Tech History podcast hit it’s 1000th episode. It was a milestone I thought was going to hit on June 15th, but made a mis-calculation. Still, after 1000 episodes, Day in Tech History is still going strong!
I started the Day in Tech History as the Week in Tech History on Geekazine as part of the Geekazine Quickcast. I made the conscious decision to move the show to it’s own podcast in August. On 8-10-2009, the Day in Tech History officially began.
Recording 365 episodes was a real beast. However, I put my head down and plowed through the content. Some episodes were made in the wee hours of the night. I calculated over a month’s worth of work hours were put into the first year’s recordings alone.
After the first 365 days, the job got easier. I cataloged the information on Wikazine.com, and some recordings were pristine to be able and revise. Still, writing posts and getting photo content does bring a good deal of work to this job.
I officially moved Dayintechhistory.com to it’s own website on October 1st, 2011. Since then, I’ve expanded the site to include birthdays of tech history and recaps of the year. I plan to bring a couple people on to help contribute, along with history video.
With somewhere around 8,000 -10,000 hours spent, I have put out an episode a day for over one thousand days. It’s a feat only a couple people can say they did.
So here is to the first thousand episodes. Episode 2,000 will hit on January 30th, 2015. That way, I’m prepared…
