Glad to hear that you guys listened to and enjoyed Clay and my talk with Russ. It was a lot of fun doing it. The sound quality issue is a long story. We started out Parallel Programming Talk on a shoe string and set it up as just recorded phone calls figured it out a we went. We pushed really hard and finally got a real studio. You can check out our new "clearer audio" broadcasts at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/parallel-programmin... Thank you for watching the show! Aaron

You would think that a company with the expertise of Intel would be able to get the sound right.

This is a serious comment. I am really interested in Go and have been following Russ Cox & Rob Pike for a number of years. I listened to the whole of this interview. It was interesting.

But, the sound is terrible. Which is a shame. With the resources available to an organisation like Intel I would expect better. A couple of decent microphones rather than headsets would have been all it would have taken. Russ was in Google, no doubt, and is a Mac user so I'm sure there would have been no problem for him to connect a decent microphone (or record his end in garageband for later inclusion).

If a one-man shop like Dan Benjamin at 5by5 (http://5by5.tv/) can get it right, surely Intel could do a bit better.


Personally, I think they were covertly testing a new chip to make professional videos seem more like low-fi youtube streams. CNN would want a data center full of them.
