Nominated for SIA Award
RecordForAll was nominated for
the 2007 SIA Award for the Best Sound Program
The Shareware Industry Awards were
created as a way to honor the very best
programs marketed using the "shareware"
marketing model. In those early days it
was often an up-hill battle, but the small
software authors persevered. Over time,
the number of companies using the "shareware"
model has increased dramatically. Today
nearly all software companies use the "shareware"
marketing model whether they use the term
or not. This fact stands as a tribute to
the many pioneers who braved new ground
in the name of "shareware." These pages
are a testimony to where we've been, where
we are, and just how far we've come. The
Shareware Industry Awards are dedicated
to excellence in software.

can be a tricky proposition for a podcaster
starting out. Once you have determined individuals
that will appeal to your target audience
contact potential interviewees and arrange
a time to conduct the interview. Following
this guide will insure that the interview
goes off without a hitch.
1. Prepare Questions in Advance

interview, contemplate possible follow-up
questions based on the expected responses.
Create a list of notes along with the questions
that are accessible during the interview
and will help you direct the conversation.

individuals you are interviewing. A little
due diligence will go a long way. Search
newsgroups and Google for the interviewees
name, product, or company, and build a background.

interviews in which the interviewee participated,
read their blog and articles to get a feel
