CEO[edit]

Isn't there a new CEO? That is a must mention —Preceding unsigned comment added by Arthritix (talkcontribs) 10:56, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Jumping Monkeys canceled?[edit]

According to the greeting published here: http://twit.tv/2008/12/22/joyueux_no%C3%ABl, Jumping Monkeys has ended. If this is the case, it should be listed as a retired podcast. 68.228.30.5 (talk) 19:14, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


Merge podcasts into this article[edit]

I think some of the TWiT podcasts should be merged into this article. Several include no references, and most don't include any secondary sources. After some brief research I doubt they would survive an AfD. -- pb30<talk> 02:35, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Server crash[edit]

Should there be a section on the crash of Leo's server's RAID 5 array on September 19? His blog post is at [1]. I would think that this would be notable since all the TWiT sites were down for several days. -- Imperator3733 (talk) 21:04, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

net@night vs. net@nite[edit]

I have changed the name of the podcast to "net@night," because this is the preferred spelling that Laporte uses. I do know that it was formerly named "net@nite," but Laporte decided to use the alternative spelling instead. You may verify this at the official netcast page at http://twit.tv/natn. --azure talk × contribs 15:26, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure he made the change because one of the first sponsors of the show set up a promo code for listener's of the show, and t up the code to be "netatnight" instead of "netatnite". This must have caused enough confusion (as the sponsor stayed on for quite a long time) that he evidently changed the name of the show to match it. 03:27, 29 December 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned
Not sure when the change was made, but this show is now called The Social Hour, and is hosted by Sara Lane and Amber MacArthur--Robertjm (talk) 04:46, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Line-up changes[edit]

As recent as December 24th, 2009, "This Week in Computer Hardware" and "Maxwell's House" have become audio netcasts (at the least available through iTunes), and TWiT Fit has been cancelled; I copy/pasted the entries to the appropriate section to update this. However, I noticed that a new show called "Home Theater Geeks" with Scott Wilkinson is not listed anywhere. As I'm not familiar with this show, I have not added it, but someone who knows it better than I should probably add it. 03:23, 29 December 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.208.12.140 (talk)

Ok, so I'm a little behind on listening to the shows and felt I needed to append to my above comment about TWiT Fit. Back in September 2009 on one of his shows (I think it was the Daily GizWiz episode where he discovered Dick DeBartolo has been doing yoga for over 30 years), Leo mentioned that TWiT Fit has been discontinued, but will actually be picked back up again at a later date and will be hosted by Alex Lindsay. (No mention if it would be moved to a Pixelcorps show.) He said he was trying to bring back the list of shows he was doing to being more tech-oriented, and thought Alex would be a better host anyway. He said this because he had recently discovered that Alex actually has been a personal trainer in the past, and already has a lot of fitness expertise! 69.208.12.140 (talk) 03:59, 31 December 2009 (UTC)


ODTV[edit]

It redirects here, maybe the article should mention it? Bustter (talk) 00:07, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

TWiT.com is s name stealer .thery are stealing from TWiTer.com —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.176.128.32 (talk) 15:58, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

^ This is stupid. Twit.tv Pre-existed Twitter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.230.58.152 (talk) 21:55, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

At least three links are dead: Twit Army ("no such page"); Book Picks (Internal Server Error); Unofficial forum (failed to load).
A couple are redundant. Reference: Wikipedia:External_links#Official_links
One is misleading by name (Books Picks leads to external music URL). Reference: Wikipedia:External_links#Links_normally_to_be_avoided
One is not permitted: Unofficial forum. Reference: Wikipedia:External_links#Links_normally_to_be_avoided

Will edit as soon as possible unless there is compelling reason not to. --173.55.205.67 (talk) 20:20, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

List of advertisers[edit]

Is there any real reason to list the advertisers? (The list is, by the way, out of date). It seems rather tangential to the article. If there are no objections I will remove that section. Dbrodbeck (talk) 23:22, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

  • Agree There's no need to list them because it just promotes advertising, IMO --ZLMedia 02:17, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
OK, away it goes.... Dbrodbeck (talk) 16:45, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

List of shows[edit]

There's a list of former shows, but it looks like the current lineup and description of shows has been removed. This should really be on the page. --PatrickD (talk) 23:06, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

The Current Netcasts section table is getting pretty excessive, especially with the description section pretty bulky. Rebel shadow 02:22, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I think listing all of them is excessive. Of course talk about the TWiT show, and perhaps TNT as it is daily, but beyond that, I mean, does the article about NBC list every show? Dbrodbeck (talk) 02:44, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Actually, the NBC article takes great pains to mention every single show, currently, and with a link, in history since NBC's inception of both Radio and TV. Bands-of-neon (talk) 05:16, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
