This is a 100% nostalgia infused show. Original founder of Engadget, Peter Rojas, is in with Ryan Block, who was also there in the very early days, on this week’s episode and they are talking about the genesis of the site.
There is no actual gadget talk this week, but it is a rare chance to hear a lot about the history of Engadget and how these big sites start.
We don’t really get too reflective here at Engadget — usually we’re too busy getting news up to think much about ourselves. Still, when you hit your 5th birthday, you tend to want to look back and review how far you’ve come. We thought there’d be no better way to celebrate the milestone than by having the site’s founder Peter Rojas, and instrumental architect Ryan Block on the show to discuss the early days of Engadget. So without further ado — sit back and enjoy our 5th birthday podcast!
