The Twisted Show Workflow
- Get approval, schedule the interview, obtain links and background information.
- Create a list of questions, topics to cover, etc., optionally sharing them with the interviewee.
- Conduct the interview, recording the conversation (Audio Hijack + Skype are a good set of tools on Mac OS X).
- Upload the guest company/organization logo here: TwistedShowGuestLogos
- Create a wiki page with a page name of the form "InterviewPERSONORGNAMEYYYYMM".
- Add a section describing the person or organization.
- Provide a list of the people interviewed as well as who conducted the interview.
- For the body of the wiki page, follow the instructions below, depending upon the medium.
- At the end of the body, add a section for "Resources", to include such things as company links, news articles, other interviews, blogs, software projects, etc.
Text Media: Transcripts
This one's easy:
- Transcribe the text and edit it.
- Paste it to the wiki page, bolding the questions for easy visual cueing by readers.
Audio Media: Podcasts
This one's much more involved:
- Save the audio interview as .ogg, editing out as much noise as possible.
- Upload the audio files to archive.org using the tmlabs account (contact oubiwann for user/password info).
- Provide titles of the form "Twisted Matrix Labs: Interview with ..." or "Twisted Matrix Labs: ..."
- This should give corresponding identifiers of "TwistedMatrixLabsInterviewWith..." or "TwistedMatrixLabs..."
- Tag content with at least the following "twisted, python, twisted show, tmlabs, twisted matrix laboratories".
- Upload logo.
- Update wiki page with links to uploaded material on archive.org.
- Create blog post on http://thetwistedshow.blogspot.com.
- line feed setting
- podcast setting
- Check FeedBurner RSS.
- Had to enable FeedBurner's SmarCast service [more notes later]
- Check iTunes.
- Update news on launchpad
- Create a labs.tm.com blog post announcing the interview
