Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for November 3, 2007. This is my wrapup of my experiences at ConvergeSouth 2007. I play a song from the Wigg Report and mention how I have already done this show but was screwed by a faulty flash card. I talk about […]

A Typical ConvergeSouth Conversation

PICT0393.JPG Originally uploaded by firelace Ruby: I’m still waiting for the sensible part to kick in. Me: I’m not convinced, which is why I am not only making a face but projecting a protective energy beam of skepticality around my body. Ed: Hey, if you don’t like it what are y’all going to do about […]

Heading Home

I’m packed up and about to vacate the Hampton Inn for the pleasant confines of home. I’ve got to get back to my dog and take him to the Bark Park, and there is a game 7 in the ALCS and all the normal things I would do in your average weekend. This time driving […]

Converge South, Day 2, Evening

Late afternoon, and it was back to downtown Greensboro from the hotel in the suburbs. Through some freak of parking karma, I got the parking spot right in front of the film festival venue. I would later betray myself as unworthy of this. Our hosted dinner was right across the street, so it really couldn’t […]

New Tagline

I changed my tagline/subtitle based on a spontaneous remark I made at the bar last night. The motto of this blog is now “Defy the Zeitgeist”. I think we are also going to print up t-shirts for it. Also on:

ConvergeSouth Day 2, Lunch and Afternoon

I made a point of introduction myself to Soni Pitts by telling her “I like the cut of your jib.” Apparently, […]

Up at 8 AM, an hour behind schedule. I still made it out of the hotel and to the conference by 8:50 AM. I love being a guy! I’m in the Elisa Camahort keynote now. She asked if anyone had heard of Millie Garfield, and I didn’t recognize the name off the bat but when […]

ConvergeSouth, Day 1, Evening and Late Night

Running late. In at 1 AM + phone call from work at 5 AM = sleepy boy not getting up on schedule. Still trying to make the conference before the breakfast is over. Shower like the wind, Forest! I did take the nap and then headed out to the BBQ at the Hoggard’s house in […]

ConvergeSouth, Day 1, Lunch and Afternoon

Lunch was fun. I chatted with Ben Hwang for a long time, and saw my friend from Virginia Robert Harvey. I sat with Don Moore and talked for a while. Don is the guy who made the t-shirt order that pushed me over the edge of needing to reprint. After lunch, I wanted to go […]

Converge South, Day 1, Morning

I’m here. I meant to get up at 4 AM and on the road by 5:30 AM but I slept until 4:50 and didn’t leave until about 6 AM. Still, I managed to get to the NC A&T campus, parked, registered and in the Jason Calacanis talk by 9:30. Had I got up on schedule, […]
