After 22 years we have decided to bring the show to a close. Our last episode will be Wednesday, March 1st. While we’re sad to say goodbye, we have come to the decision that it’s time to move on to other things.

It’s been an amazing run and we are truly grateful for the opportunity we have had over the years to share our enthusiasm for technology with the City of Houston here on KPFT and to the world via the live stream and podcast.

We’ll be having one last geek gathering on March 3rd so keep an eye out for that announcement.

We invite you to tune in to the final shows. You’re especially welcome to call in and share your memories of Technology Bytes over the years.
