1 Baratunde Thurston

baratunde-thumbOn this debut episode of The Kindle Chronicles, the “What’s on Your Kindle?” interview is with The Onion‘s web-and-election wizard Baratunde Thurston, a comedian and blogger who offers great suggestions for a wished-for social network capability for the Kindle, and how the device has changed the way he reads.  Here is some of what’s on Baratunde’s Kindle:

The Scar by China Mieville
Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations by Clay Shirky
The Daily Kos
treehugger
The Huffington Post
ReadWriteWeb
The New York Times

Also in this episode, News of rumors of a new Kindle in October, a Tech Tip for changing the images on your screen in sleep mode, and a Kindle Quote from Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Music for the podcast is “Ra-Monk” by Eval Manigat on the “Variations in Time: A Jazz Perspective” CD by Public Transit Recording, courtesy of IODA Promonet.

    This first Podcast isn’t visible on the iTunes Subscription? Waiting on my first Kindle. I order the Kindle DX on July 2, 2009. Just looking to learn about some of the hidden secrets of the Kindle. Enjoyed the feature regarding changing the screen saver.

    Regards,
