Our man Dave Jones down under in Australia presents a five episode fire side chat with the man behind Talking Electronics magazine. While the focus is about Talking Electronics, the whole chat is full of wisdom of business and life skills, such that I find it hard to pass by without posting it up here.

While Talking Electronics magazine was an Australian magazine, the conversation includes other well know titles like Electronics Today International and Elektor.

The talk covers Colins philosophy to doing business, magazine advertising revenue, the competitors and how they started all on their own the war to put Talking Electronics out of business, and Colin’s venture to bring his magazine to the shores of the USA and the challenges he found there plus of course, the prototypes that were the projects presented in the magazine itself.
