Bytemarks Cafe is Coming
Renown "digital wonderer" Burt Lum will soon be returning to the airwaves with "Bytemarks Cafe," a radio show about technology and the web coming in July on Hawaii Public Radio (KIPO-FM 89.3).
"It'll be a magazine format with news bytes, interviews, cool websites and an audio pick of the week," he explains, and adds that he is already on the hunt for topic suggestions and interesting people to interview.
Burt says he's always had a love for radio, having once had a regular show during his college days at Stanford (where he earned an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering).
The "Bytemarks" name, meanwhile, is also celebrating a milestone of sorts: it's been ten years since "Bytemarks" debuted as a regular column in the Honolulu Advertiser. Even though that gig ended in 2004, he quickly jumped to radio with a self-produced and self-financed show called "Rough Take." With "Bytemarks Cafe" on HPR, plenty of talented people will be working hard behind the scenes so that Burt can focus on the heart of the show: the ideas, and the people.
Congratulations, Burt! I can't wait to tune in!
