Shutdown and Restart

I’ve got PME writeups to write and posts, a bunch of interviews to make into episodes of the podcast, all kinds of various things to do but last night I was so zonky that all I could do was read email and news feeds and then look at PME pictures on Flickr. Yesterday was a […]

And Back Again

I’m home from PPME 2006 after a grueling day of travel followed by sleep in my own bed and now I get to get up and go to work. It was a fun weekend, but for relaxation this is not the best strategy. Today I’ll try to write up the overview of the expo before […]

Back offline

I think I’m going to fold the computer tent for most or all of the rest of the day. I’m going to trade the iBook for the Marantz and do interviews around with people for the balance of the afternoon. Too much gear and you become your own sherpa, and that ain’t fun. Later, taters. […]

Crazy Times

It’s been a nonstop whirlwind since I got up yesterday, and I hadn’t even opened the laptop in the almost 24 hours since the talk. I did a panel with Ray Slakinski at the Podango booth, I met up with Susan Kitchens and we hung out for a while. I had long political talks about […]

Information Overload

The biggest bit of stress I have out of the whole Podcast Expo is remembering people. I’ve talked to so many people, met so many last year, received so many comments and audio bits and logos over the last few weeks. If I meet you and don’t immediately recognize your name, or the name of […]

The Journey Begins

I’m sitting at the gate at MYR. Because I’m a travel spaz, I went ahead and got here plenty early and decided to chill. Since there is free wifi at the gate, it made more sense to pack and check in several hours before the flight left than to answer email up until time to […]

Pros and Cons

I’ve had to decline a heartbreaking number of invitations to come to conventions and/or conferences this year. In several cases, I was invited to speak or lead sessions and I just couldn’t do it. Being in a job situation without vacation contributed a lot, where I would have to not only pay my way plus […]

Send Me Your Logos and URLS, You Devoted Amateurs

Just to clarify even more, you people who podcast for the love of it, send me your logo to if you have one, an URL to your web page if you don’t. If you do multiple shows and they all fit that standard, send me all of them. If you do a show for […]

Interview Me!

I’m back in the interviewing ring. It’s kind of odd how I go months between being interviewed by anyone, and then I get a few in a few days. This has happened multiple times, and it’s happening again now. Last night I was interviewed by Tim Bourquin about the session I’ll be doing at Podcast […]

Speaking at PME

I’ve been invited again to speak at Podcast and Portable Media Expo, about which I’m quite happy. My talk will be Friday, September 29th from 10:30am – 11:30am. I like this better than the previous one because I can get in, do my talk as one of the very first things and then simmer down […]

PME Talk Audio is Posted

My talk at Portable Media Expo has been posted, and you can download it from the page of all Saturday sessions. I gave it a cursory listen and the sound is pretty good. The downside is that the best moment of the whole thing is lost because there was no microphone available for Swoopy’s comment […]

CNBC Update

According to Michael Geoghegan, the CNBC piece from PME will be today on “Closing Bell” between 4 and 5 PM EST. I’ll be taping it and can get the audio off of it, but have no way to do the video. Can anyone in the nerdosphere capture that? Update: To clarify, I’m wondering if anyone […]
