  2. Omni Parker House Hotel | Boston Behind the Scenes Podcast

    I’m back after a break with another look behind the scenes in Boston. Thanks to all of you who emailed me suggestions and supportive comments (don’t worry — I’m not going away!). I took a short break, but I’m back now with a show that is just packed full of history.

    Boston’s Omni Parker House Hotel sits at one of the oldest intersections in Boston on the site of America’s first public school. The hotel itself was the first luxury hotel built in America, and is now the oldest operating hotel in the country. Throughout its 150-year history, Omni Parker House has housed, fed, or employed such famous names as Longfellow, Dickens, Kennedy, Emerson, Roosevelt, Curley, Ho Chi Minh, John Wilkes Booth, and dozens more.

    The hotel is now the flagship property of the Omni Hotels chain, and remains one of the places to stay in Boston. I stopped by for a short stay and a talk with one of their staff members about the place.

    The hotel has such an involved history that the “Brief History” pamphlet they gave me is almost 50 pages long, so lets call this episode a snapshot of America’s oldest hotel.

  3. Inside the Boston Accent | Boston Behind the Scenes Podcast

    I only realized I had a Bahstahn accent lately. Moving from Rozzi to the burbs. Yes it is a Hoss and dinner wouldn’t be the same without B-taydas. Swill, Gahbidge, and trash are all different. The “Arbs” was the most gorgeous living museum. On Friday nights we used to go “scoopin” “hoodsies” of course nevah in our own neighborhood because our Saturday dates would kill us. We drank tonic. We had fake ID’s for the “packies”. James Michael Curley’s picture was in all the bahs especially JP. We ate subs and the kids from southie had spukkies. We graduated from one connah to another then to our bah. If we didn’t go to college we went our “draft board”, then to “nahm”. Wednesday was always “Prince spaghetti day”. We spent our younger years in the summer “hangin in da skool yahd” under supervised City care and learned all the “gimp” stiches (square, round and butterfly). We honed our Chinese checker game and learned how to throw “bean bags” through holes. We had “May Processions” generally the first time we had to hold a girl’s hand (at that time that was not “pissa”).

    We got out of school early when they had elections. Usually Kevin White would win. We had to wear ties and a jacket to school,Until Kevin White changed the rule in 1968. Louise Day Hicks’ hair nevah moved. A slice of pizza and an RC Cola was a quarter. “Surman’s” was the only place we could get “irrodescent” pants and “cuban heeled” “mouse traps”. After school got out in the summer we could get into a sox game by just showing our “T” passes for free. Parochial school girls learned the fine art of “rolling the skirts and hiking them up”, in the 10th grade. Ahhh I was so proud and syill am to have a Bahstahn accent and to have been from Bahstahn.

  8. Gillmor Gang 07.18.14: Yotifications

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Alexia Tsotsis, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — react with nervous jokes as all eyes turn to the success of Yo, the single-minded communication app that has one thing on its little mind. But wait a minute, what’s surreally going on here as BetaWorks’ John Borthwick leads an investment round on the love child union of What’s App and Poke?

    Borthwick sees far beyond the atomization of app suites, most precisely a harnessing of the notification paradigm that some of the Gang see as the biggest threat to search and maybe the Web. Those who follow the show know there’s nothing more viral and strategic in this age of mobile disruption than notification politics, so batten down the hatches and climb aboard. Yo know what I mean?
