Interview: Greg Stilson AIRA
Last week we discussed the new AIRA rate plans and many of you wrote in with your questions about these changes to the popular service. Greg Stilson, Director of Product and no stranger to the BBQ microphones, is back with us to provide some clarifications on these new plans. He also gives some context as to what the company has learned from their AIRA Explorers and how that information shaped the new plans being offered.

I don't know if you've seen this yet or not but there is currently a survey available at WinAmp
It asks people who do the survey what feature they would like to have included in a future version of Winamp. Once you get to the Winamp home page the link to the survey is called "Take Survey".
I thought this could be of interest to some people given the popularity of Winamp in the blind community.
Music is a well worn visitor to this section of the show, however, this food story isn't the usual fare at all.
