Goodbye Morgan, you will be missed

WebbAlert – Your Daily Tech Roundup

Posted on, Morgan Webb of Tech TV/ G4/ XPlay/ cover girl and gamer announced on her website that she will no longer continue with Webb Alert, the almost daily tech podcast. Also one of the few I listen to.

I looked forward to the Webbalert podcast to provide me with some tech news and such. I even remember her being a guest on Tekzilla on how she made the podcast.

I also found it amazing on how she made her podcast even while on the road while she went to the Tokyo Game Show among others.

It’s good in a way that she’s doing a lot more for G4 and X-Play being it’s top gaming show. But on the other hand, is it because she doesn’t have any sponsors for her show anymore. But at least she’s not off the air completely. I sure do hope that she will not forget this endeavor and in the future may decide to revive Webbalert.

Now all we have to follow is X-Play and G4. I wonder if we can follow her on twitter…

My new favorite sites

Weekend blogging brings a certain type of peace and relaxation for me. Now why does that sound soo weird. Two things mentioned recently in one of the podcasts I listen to which happens to be Leo Laporte’ In a recent show they mention the human search engine Mahalo and Morgan Webb’s Webb Alert (yes she was with TechTV and is now with G4). Both of which are amazing.

Let’s begin with Mahalo. The word meaning welcome in Hawaii uses people instead of algorithims in searching the web. It’s kinda like wikipedia meets digg but without the myspace attitude. One of my favorites has to be How to learn Japanese with Akira Kurosawa.

Next is Morgan Webb’s first podcast which is aptly named Webb Alert. It provides insights into tech’s daily news with a dose of Morgan on the side. It’s pretty good and I well made. The commentary is just right. If you don’t want to listen to Alex Albrecht and Kevin Rose’s drunk stupor (sometimes) whine in Diggnation then Webb Alert is for you. It’s very new compared to digg and twit and she only posts from Monday to Thursday. Here’s hoping that she covers the whole week.

Here’s the latest episode.

I’ll look around for more interesting posts on the web. But for now, I ❤ these sites.
