1199679274_509351721b_bI used to podcast pretty regularly, on this site and elsewhere. Then other things got in the way and, before I knew it, almost two years had passed since my last podcast here.

Well, it’s time to put that right. I’m podcasting again, and I’ve got a nice pipeline of guests lined up over the next few weeks.

First up, and breaking me in gently, is another lapsed podcaster; Marc Farley. Marc is a Senior Product Marketing Manager at StorSimple, a storage company acquired by Microsoft back in 2012. He’s also pretty active on Twitter, and probably well known to those of you in the storage world.

We talk about Microsoft (“software company”) and its interest in StorSimple (“hardware company”), before moving on to look at the broader implications of storing stuff in the cloud for a long, long time. We touch on some of the issues raised in a recent post of mine, looking at the value of cloud storage to the archival community.

Have a listen, and let us know what you think… And do let me know who else you’d like to hear from, and on which topics.
