Twit.tv - The best and most entertaining site on the net for Technology News and insights Minimize


The TWiT.tv Story

It all started in 1998 with a small cable network called ZDTV, a channel dedicated to covering computers, the Internet, and personal technology. Many of the people behind this site worked on that network as hosts, reporters, or producers.

In 2004, ZDTV, then called TechTV, was sold and dismantled. Former TechTV hosts, Leo Laporte, Patrick Norton, Kevin Rose, and John C. Dvorak, and producers Robert Heron, David Prager, and Roger Chang went on to other jobs, but we stayed in touch, with each other, and with fans of the late TechTV. Those fans told us again and again how important TechTV had been in their lives, and how much they missed the channel. We missed working with each other, too.

On a rainy evening in January, 2005 a few of of us got together for dinner after spending the day covering Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Leo, who was working as a radio host, happened to have a microphone and recorder. He turned it on and recorded 20 minutes of idle chatter about the Expo and the tech world in general. He posted that recording on his web site. Within a few days tens of thousands of people had downloaded the recording. TechTV fans began clamoring for more. A few months later, TWiT was born.

This Week in Enterprise Tech 278: Why Enterprises Still Tip-Toe Around the Cloud

This Week in Enterprise Tech (Audio)

Mass migration to the cloud has proven to be challenging, costly and complex for many companies. This is why on-prem footprints continue to maintain a stronghold on essential apps that aren't making the move. Edge computing has brought together the best of the cloud and made it more accessible to more workloads, previously locked on prem. Hybrid, multi-cloud and edge-based models will propel the cloud forward.
