WorkAwesome editor Mike Vardy had the pleasure to interview Lifehacker founding editor and highly-regarded developer Gina Trapani on this week’s episode of the podcast. Gina’s got a ton of projects on the go on the web, all of which are awesome in scope and in nature. She’s regarded as one of the top productivity experts on the web today (one could go as for to say that her reach expands well beyond the Internet realm as well), and it was truly a privilege to have her on as a guest. Show Notes Gina discusses the reason behind starting started Lifehacker and the reason for eventually leaving the site. Why Gina believes that productivity has had (and still does have) such an appeal to so many on the Internet. Todo.txt app, Gina’s self-developed task list application, is discussed. Gina gives a rundown of her daily workflow, including IRC, email and other tools she uses. What is ThinkUp? Gina spills the beans. Mike and Gina offer a requiem for the late, lamented Google Wave. The status of Gina’s standing desk experiment. Apparently, Gina occasionally dances while she works. So what’s on her playlist? Gina digs Gmail…she explains her reasons, what aspects of Gmail’s features she uses and some of the other apps she has to keep tabs on things.
There was a lot more that went down in this brief — yet informative and entertaining — discussion, including Gina’s drink of choice and sleep habits. Check out this episode by subscribing through your favorite podcast aggregator or by listening to it right here on the website. Please note that there were some slight issues with Skype on occasion during the interview. There wasn’t much that could be done about that, and since Gina’s time is at a premium, there was little choice but to let these rare imperfections slide. If you enjoy the podcast, please let us know. Leave us a rating and review in iTunes; it’ll help people find us and build up our listenership. We’re working hard to bring some great guests on — and we’ve already had some great ones — so if you have any suggestions on guests or what you’d like to hear, let us know in the comments. We’re starting to roll out some of the suggestions we’ve received as of this week’s podcast, such as the expanded show notes. There’s more improvements to come. Our goal…to be the podcast destination for those who want to do (and are doing) awesome work.

In a special podcast from North Carolina, Alok Jha goes right to the heart of global science blogging at Science Online 2011.
Hundreds of scientists, students, journalists, librarians, bloggers and programmers met to discuss how the web is changing the way science is communicated, taught and carried out.
We look at how this relatively new medium has evolved over the past few years and ask: what role does it now play and where does it fit into modern science? Is it changing how science is reported?
Are there additional challenges for women who want to blog about science? Why do some choose to remain anonymous?
There’s even a Star Wars joke thrown in for good geeky measure.
Ed Yong tells us about Britain’s blogging scene - and lets us in on the secret of how much money there is to be made from it.
Did Alok finally get to meet the enigma who is Bora Zivkovic? Is he even real?
Finally, after making the acquaintance of one half of NPR’s Radiolab programme, Jad Abumrad, a few weeks ago, we get to speak to the other half, Robert Krulwich.
In this episode Keith and Woody sit down with friend and traveling developer Corey Haines. Here’s a question, how many times have you written comments in your code? Probably a lot! In this show Corey gives some valid reasons why developers shouldn’t have comments in their code (with a few exceptions). The guys also discuss pair programming, what it is, how it is done, and the benefits of doing it.
From http://www.lse.ac.uk/resources/podcasts/publicLecturesAndEvents.htm: Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation, selling 4 million copies in 35 languages. Now, four years in the making, arrives the follow up: SuperFreakonomics|. Steve Levitt and Stephen Dubner return with a book that is even bolder, funnier, and more surprising than the first. Freakonomics made the world safe to discuss the economics of crack cocaine and the impact of baby names. SuperFreakonomics| retains that off-kilter sensibility (comparing, for instance, the relative dangers of driving while drunk versus walking while drunk) but also tackles a host of issues at the very centre of modern society: terrorism, global warming, altruism, and more.
Kevlin Henney, editor/author of 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know, discusses the book and the programming process. He talks about how he compiled the essays for the book and lists some of the items he found most surprising and thought provoking. He also assesses the issues related to programmer training, including some of the things not taught in school.
