Room 404, with Sascha Pallenberg

This week it’s the turn of Sascha Pallenberg to be welcomed into the depths of Room 404 and try to bring back to the world the forgotten technology of the past. While Sascha today is focussed on tablets and netbooks (at www.netbooknews.com) his wish list shows him to be more of a gamer and sharer.

The Competition Pro 5000 joystick
300 baud modems
The Atari 2600 VCS
The geek culture of “Copy Parties
Bluetooth headsets

You can follow Sascha online via Facebook and his work at Netbook News. As for Room 404, that’s where iTunes comes in handy (or our regular RSS feed if you’re a bit techie).

Room 404, with James Whatley

James Whatley (@whatleydude) from 1000heads enters Room 404 this week, clutching a list of memories, gadgets, tech and TV shows that he wants to bring back to the public. Can he convince Ewan Spence of their merits?

The Nintendo GameCube GameBoy Advanced cable.
Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light
Knightmare
Hero Quest 
The Xbox Kinect

James spends his working day at 1000heads, and he lurks online mostly on Twitter as @WhatleyDude. Don’t forget you can find Room 404 in iTunes – why not consider leaving a review of the show?

Room 404, with Kevin Marks

Kevin Marks has a big CV. From being one of the founders of microformats and sitting on the Advisroy council of ORG (the UK Digital Rights Group), to working for Technorati, Google and British Telecom, he has a rich history to pick from. Now he’ll attempt to bring back his favourite memories from Room 404, and replace them with some modern technology that he’d rather the world forgets.

  • Routeable IP addressess.
  • Kevin’s Commodore PET back-up tapes.
  • Any Mornington Crescent server.
  • GROGGS.
  • Big [data] buffers on the internet.

Kevin is on the majority of online services as ‘KevinMarks’ (such as on Twitter), or at his blog, Epeus Epigone. He’s also got a weekly podcast as well, called Tummelvision. And when you head to iTunes to subscribe to that, you can subscribe to Room 404 as well!
