Welcome!

Welcome to the new No Strings Attached Show blog and podcast! So what exactly is this place and why should I follow this blog and listen to the podcasts? Well the No Strings Attached Show, NSA Show for short, is brought to you by some of the brightest and best Wireless engineers from various walks of life. We have two wireless CCIE’s, a couple of CWNE’s, and a handful of other certifications. Here’s a look at who is involved in bringing the NSA Show to life:

Sam Clements

SC-WiFi @Samuel_Clements

Jennifer Huber

Wireless CCIE, here I come! @JenniferLucille

Blake Krone

Digital Lifestyle @BlakeKrone

Chris Lyttle

WiFi Kiwi’s Blog @WiFiKiwi

George Stefanick

Each of us brings a different view on the products that we use on a daily basis to provided Wireless networking to the masses, this will hopefully lead to some interesting discussions on the podcasts! We’ve got some great shows in the work such as talking with Aerohive about their controller-less architecture, Cisco’s new products, a podcast / blog series about the various certifications out there to validate your knowledge, and some deep dive technical sessions on various Wireless concepts. This isn’t a marketing show, this is a technical show!

We hope that you will join us on a regular basis as we publish podcasts on a bi-weekly basis on Wednesday’s of course for #WirelessWednesday on twitter.

I’d also like to let everyone know how we are going to be handling sponsors for the show/blog. We will be allowing vendors to purchase ad space (located in the top banner) as well as a short segment on the podcast episodes, there is also a Google AdWords box in the sidebar. These won’t be obtrusive (no big flashy lights on the site, tastefully done, etc) and will help us cover the costs of hosting the site and blog media. Sponsors will also be helping with equipment purchases. A sponsor may also provide us with demo equipment, but this does not by any means constitute an endorsement by the NSA Show. We will put each product through the paces and provide an unbiased review on a show. If you would like to individually contribute to the show please use the donation link on the sidebar.

    Very exciting! Congrats on the site launch and can’t wait to start listening and reading what you guys/gal come up with.

    A great start to 2012!

    This sounded interesting, even though I don’t do much in the wireless space… then I realized you haven’t even released the first podcast and you already have AdSense ads up, donation links posted, and plans for sponsorship.

    I could be very wrong (and, honestly, I hope I am), but it seems fairly obvious what your intentions are.

    Seriously, though, you have a “welcome” post, one “real” post, a “placeholder” post — and absolutely zero podcasts — and yet you’re already trying to make money off of it?

    Like I said, I hope I’m wrong. Good luck.

      Well as I see on your site you have ads as well so you fully understand there are costs associated with hosting. We have two hosting providers to cover: web and media. Then there are the hardware fees associated with equipment for a professional sounding podcast. I have to date paid for everything associated with getting this up and running out of pocket, I’ll be lucky if I break even. I clearly called out the intentions in the welcome post and we have stated the podcasts start tomorrow.

        Hi Blake,

        Sure I have advertising. My point, which I think you might have missed, isn’t that all advertising is bad. Everyone understands that hosting and bandwidth isn’t free. It is typical, however, to wait until you’ve an established “subscriber base” before you unleash all that on them. If it works for you, though, more power to ya. I’ll certainly check out the first podcast when it comes out and, as I said, good luck.

    Cool idea for the site. You should sneak a slide in at the PVT this month to get the word out =)

      I like your thinking Jeff! We actually have Cisco coming on for a show here soon, but maybe we can convince them? Are you heading to SJC for the PVT?
