I’ve been interested for a long time in developing my own apps for the Boxee platform and over this past month, I finally had a chance to do it.
The first app I created is for the round-table technology show Cranky Geeks hosted by none other than John C. Dvorak.
For those that watched Dvorak’s show Silicon Spin on TechTV/ZDTV, Cranky Geeks is a similar type of show. But if you didn’t watch, Cranky Geeks is a 30-minute weekly discussion show over technology topics of the week. Sebastian Rupley usually joins him as the “co-crank” along with two other panel members. Some notable panelist have included: Molly Wood, Om Malik, Tom Merritt, Jim Louderback, Harry McCracken, David Spark, Garnett Lee, Leo Laporte, Veronica Belmont, Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht.
Below is a screen-shot of what the app looks like in Boxee:
To add it to Boxee, just add the following repository: http://dir.gregms.com and then add the Cranky Geeks app. If you have already added the all inclusive third-party Boxee Repository, then the Cranky Geeks app should now be available.
My next app will be The Legend of Neil webseries, which is a spoof on the television/video game series Legend of Zelda. It is a NSFW webseries, but very entertaining.
Update: The Legend of Neil app is now available: Click here to find out more.
