BOB Predictions TRIBE Predictions
Status: [CLOSED]

I visit this site to get reliable information about the IT world and some of their players. I look forward to the realization of this one.

It's been a while. It would be nice to finally see it "air".

sir you have proffered this proposition before i find the realization of this endeavor to dubious at best

It won't be season two, though. It's too late for that. It'll be a new show.

Joe D. Schmoe | Feb 05, 2008 | 5:05PM

I have ceased to care.

Come on Bob, NerdTV must come back. I found it quite interesting to put faces to names, especially names involved in some historic IT systems and inventions. This time round though, no daft models going on about mobile phones. I reckon you thought you were in there.

NerdTV Season Two - Taking longer than Vista did, but hopefully, will appear before Windows 7, and unlike Vista, have some value worth the wait.

I liked Anina. About the only episode worth rewatching. Do I dare make a prediction? At least one of the Season 2 guests will have died by the time their interview airs.

I hope NerdTV premieres. Anina was really helpful. I'm a graduate student going to Germany for a scientific meeting this summer, and I've become somewhat out of touch with available wireless services. It was helpful to find out what services I realistically can_not_ expect during my trip :(.

Come on BOBlosslovous is about time you got this show on the road!!!

I found that Cringely finally owns and did some looking around. All I came up with was some guy named Benjamin Higginbotham. The first guest for season 2? A made-up name to throw snoops off? I don't know, but I hope I find out before 2009.

If two out of 3 people chime in that they liked the model, then I'm just going to have to say something.

Well I watched the episodes #1-12, and I have to say that the Anina episode #9 was kind of like the outcome of a game of "one of these is not the same." While I don't want to be negative about her accomplishments, they simply didn't stack up against the others', who frankly were working a lot harder on much more technical issues; a number of them also had the advantage of being in the right time and place for inventing things that are now computing standards. It is a shame that she's one of the two women in the series because she doesn't lend any credence that women can do just as much science as men, which of course is true.

So #9 made me not want to come back for #10 or any others, until I heard from a friend that #11 was actually quite amazing, and that made me go back to #10.

Also I didn't know there was a #13, and I'll have to watch it now, because I could have sworn there was some unwritten rule that all seasons should consist of a number of episodes which is a factor or product of 12, rather than a prime around 12.
