Dirk was a little concerned before the interview that he was being interviewed in English and his mother tongue is German. He need not have worried seeing as he speaks English brilliantly and we had a super conversation about how he uses his Mac. Always good to hear from people from other countries, we don’t practice xenophobia here on Mac 20 Questions.
He tells me that he like the browser Flock and I have it on my computer here too. It is sweet that it has blogging tools built in. Trails and Houdah Geo are mentioned because of the geotagging possibilities that are available in iPhoto09.
I had never heard of Mellel which Dirk uses as a text editor. I use Textwrangler and Bean in that department.

Also recently I did a Snow Leopard special podcast talking to users just before the Snow Leopard upgrade day, to get an idea of what plans they had for the upgrade. I will do a follow up too when they have actually done the upgrade.

Karen uses PainterX extensively and is responsible for writing a number of manuals for the application. I think it is safe to call her an expert. Karen will also use Photoshop for some aspects of her work. She has an exhibition of her work in the California gallery Gallery Godo and if I lived close enough I would go to it. The invite is open so if you live in that part of the world you can get the address from Mac20Q.
Another podcast from Mac 20 Questions is the Snow Leopard part two. I talk to some users that have made the leap to upgrade and get their opinions on how it went. What about you and your Macs' how did it go? I did the nuke and pave in the iMac and was pleased. On my MacBook I did the upgrade and was not happy, so had to finish the job with a clean install on that too. All now is tickety boo, and running like a charm. Love the increase in speed, though now after a couple of weeks I have got used to it

Since the Karen Sperling interview we have Podcast 55 in which I talk to a few people about their plans to upgrade to Snow Leopard.
Then we have the excellent Knightwise from Belgium talking about what he does with his Macs. He does do some things with Linux, but I think we can forgive him for that.
Podcast 57 was a bit of a special because I talked with the couple Jamin and Kiowa Winans who are Movie makers and are promoting their latest film INK. They talk to me about the filming, the actors, finding locations, the post production work which of course was done on a Mac using Final Cut Pro. Jamin also is a musician and did the score for the Film.
GazMaz is a bloke from England and is a rugby referee. On a Saturday he will don a pair of shorts and stick a whistle in his mouth to keep the hookers and scrum half players under control. Gazmaz does a recording for the MacReviewcast and also with For Mac Eyes Only. You have to listen to GazMaz as he is a really nice guy and has plenty to say about Macs. That's Podcast 58
The next one is Podcast 59 and I talk with an IT professional by the name of GilesThurston. He is a fairly recent switcher to the Mac and it is a great thing to get a switchers view of the Mac.
I have two recordings in the can ready for editing to be turned into the podcast. If you would like to be featured on the show let me know. You can send an email to mac20q at g mail dot com. I look forward to hearing from you.
Let me know if you would like to suggest some questions to be asked on the show to. Maybe you think I have missed a huge topic that really should be covered.

Then I had the pleasure of talking to Steve Sheridan who is the husband of Podcast Allison Sheridan. We had an excellent chat about how he uses his Mac to convert video to digital amongst other things
Mac20Q Podcast 62
MacDavid was the next guest on the show and we had fun talking about Macs, he is into life streaming. Very keen to make video where ever he goes.

Mac20Q Podcast 64
More cinema and film making with David and Karen In Mac 20 Questions podcast 64 I am talking to the vibrant hosts of Film Courage, which you will find at L.A Talk Radio. We had a great conversation about film and movie making and I surely get the impression that these are people to watch out for. Most definitely going places in the movie industry.
Obviously they are FinalCutPro users and big fans of the Mac. Their story of the sound guy having to listen to the strippers in the movie making certain noises was very funny. One of them is an actual porn star.
Mac20Q Podcast 65
Ray Ortega otherwise known as the Produce Picker or @Podcasthelper, works as a professional podcaster and I we had an excellent chat about podcasting, using the Mac and making video. Ray searches twitter to find people asking questions about how to podcast then helps them become a better podcaster. Good Man Ray !
Mac20Q Podcast 66
David Schloss of Maccreate
Another of my passions is photography and I am lucky to have David Schloss from MacCreate as a guest who is a photographer too. He tells us about his equipment and how he uses it for his sport photos and also his macro photography. We chat about the new SLR cameras that do video as well as stills. Stock photography gets a mention – I do some micro stock with Fotolia and sell some of my images, both illustrations and photos. I would have to put in more effort though to make it pay me much of money but I do get some money out of it from time to time. It all helps
In the interview we also mention HDR photography and some of our favourite photographers. I like the work by Dave Hill – no not the old Slade guitarist and for HDR there is a guy called ‘Stuck in Customs’ on Flickr He has made a tutorial to show how he does it also.
Mac20Q Podcast 67
Flimutopia. many Film makers use the Mac for their work and lately I have been interviewing people for Video20Q and putting the interview on Mac20Q if they are Mac users also.
Clive is an avid Mac user and we talk quite a bit about how he uses his Mac with his film making business. He is taking footage from a Red Camera (huge data files) to do rough edits in FinalCutPro. He talks about Final Draft and Celtx.
The Filmutopia company website, where people can see clips from my movies and Clive has a Filmutopia blog, The blog is published with a new post every Sunday morning – European time, which I then discuss with readers on twitter.
Mac20Q Podcast 68

Mac20Q Podcasts February 2010
I started off the month with a podcast thanking all the listeners to the podcasts for supporting the Mac20Q show for one year, also looking at what is to come in 2010. I also talked about the move to consolidate the podcasting into one site. I have done this partly to save time with the looking after all of the separate Wordpress installations and I am finding that it makes a better web site when it is all together. Mac20Q, Photo20Q, Video20Q, Writers20Q, Car20Q, Artist20Q and other sites like the Spondicious which has been about the selling of my photos and illustrations online through the microstock sites like Fotolia.
I talked to Paul Boag who is a popular guy, there have been over 400 downloads of the Mac20Q Podcast 84. Paul is a web developer that goes out extensively to talk about making web sites and I found him to be very interesting.
Then there was Video20Q podcast 17 featuring the filmmaker Jon Reiss, who made the movie ‘Bomb It.’ I watched it and was impressed. Great that it tied in with what I have been doing already with the Graffiti Podcast, you can watch the first two episodes of the Graffiti Podcast on YouTube also.
Peter Boodts from Belgium was the next to be featured on Mac20Q. I find it amazing that I get to talk to so many interesting people doing some super stuff with the Mac, and Peter was no exception.
Andrew Jones, who is a British guy living in New Jersey in the U.S. doing photography, art, web design, video and all sorts of artistic endeavour was featured on the Mac20Q Podcast 86. He has set up a web site that he would like to see as a community of Mac users helping each other, which follows on from the work he does helping Mac users near where he lives. For a change I came upon Andrew via YouTube instead of Twitter, where I seem to meet with most people.
