In a surprise announcement Friday night, September 28, 2007 at the Podcast and New Media Expo in Ontario, California, Chuck Tomasi, co-host Technorama and Gmail Podcast, was tapped by author, Tee Morris as the newest co-writer for the upcoming 2nd Edition of “Podcasting for Dummies”, co-written by him and author, Evo Terra.
Tomasi said. “It’s an honor to be asked to co-author and update a book I have read, respected and used repeatedly. I look forward to including all the new advances in podcasting that have taken place over the last 3 years. I think it is a great way to give back to the podcasting community that has given me so much.”
Tee Morris offers up this reason for choosing Tomasi: “Chuck was the first person to contact me identifying the need for an update to the book. His experience with the technical side of podcasting and writing for Podcast User Magazine make him the perfect fit.”
