Egos and Boosts

I ran across a couple of things that made me feel good. The first is my brother discussing the merits of my podcasts. Such is the nature of our relationship that I had to read through all the way to the end to make sure he wasn’t winding me up only to drop the hammer on me somewhere in there. He does make a good point for the new podcasters – right now you have a grace period on the way they sound, but that won’t last forever. Polish those skills now while everyone is still supportive and when this medium explodes you will be well placed to take advantage of it.

Here is the single nicest thing I’ve read about me and Bloggercon. I met Patrick around at Bloggercon and sat near him at the dinner Saturday night and he was a really cool and enthused young man. I find it surreal that I was his #1 pick of a person to meet, at a conference with Adam Curry, Doc Searls, Dave Sifry, Robert Scoble, Steve Gillmor and many other luminaries of the field. Thank you Patrick! I enjoyed meeting you too.

    Am I that big of an asshole? Don’t answer that. If you want to get into that, though, you will notice that I spoke only of sound quality and not of content quality. That is why I didn’t want to discourage any of the other ‘casters, because they had more interesting things to say, they just didn’t sound as good doing it. Not that I’m dissing your content, but I favor the more personal insights. Like the Southern stereotypes rant. When you talk about ‘casting itself or start into talking nuts and bolts about software issues, I get a soda and use the potty. Which is fine. I don’t watch every minute of Law and Order or This Old House, either and I love those shows.

    So in the content category you are good, just not the top. In the sound quality category, you are head and shoulders above the next thing I personally have heard.
