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
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.
  • 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!

Room 404, with Steve Paine

Steve Paine, better known as Chippy in tech circles, runs Carrypad, a well respected site for tablet and portable computing. And he’s got some horrors he wants brought back out of Room 404.

The simple mobile phone.
FM radios.
Mechanical typewriters.
That three hour delay between taking a picture and having it developed.
Television remote controls.

You can follow all the mobile computing fun with Steve at www.carrypad.com, and Steve is on Twitter as @Chippy. And while you’re browsing, Room 404 in iTunes needs some reviews.
