EGC Clambake For July 11, 2006

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for July 11, 2006.

I wish my brother a happy birthday and talk about him and me playing online poker; I play a song from an Amy Ray solo album; I talk about PayMeToBlog and Open Roadtrip and play my interview with Scott Shawcroft and Brandon Hines of Open Roadtrip; I play a song by Alana Davis; I talk a little about creating for the love of it, I beg you for your feedback and spitball the general theme for my PME talk; I go out with my theme song of upbeat defiance by Ms. Michelle Malone; bye bye.

    I’m always excited when I notice my itunes is sucking down a new episode of EGC. Thank you for ‘putting your ass in the chair’ and keep it up.


  2. Thanks for the shout out, boudreaux. I appreciate everyone’s confidence in my abilities at the poker table. It’s a nice feeling to be good at something and have people acknowledge it. I still have along way to go in my education on tournament style Texas Hold’Em, but I am learning quickly and hope to validate the confidence in me.

    I’m not so sure about your statement that you are aging more gracefully than I. I’d like to know what criteria you are using to reach that conclusion. I’m willing to go head to head on almost any objective or subjective measure up to and including measures of turgidity and length. You don’t even have to spot me points for the diabetes. And I will give you the “36 year old Dave” measurements. Unless by “aging more gracefully” you meant “assuming less grownup responsibilities” in which case I concede.

    Thanks again. I love you, man

  3. I put a close tag of /mock outrage on the second paragraph but I reckon this thing saw it as actual html and hid it. So to those of you that don’t understand the back and forth, to and fro of our relationship, that was a joke.

    Well, except the part about me disagreeing with his assertion. I’m aging better than he is.

    I am writing to give you the feedback you begged for.
    I am always amazed how much we have in common, and also how much we do not.
    I am a 41-year-old married empty nester. I work in outside sales and love my job. I live in an Indianapolis suburb, and grew up in the St Louis area. You can see from the out side we do not have much in common. Still every show you do seems like you are reading my mind. You will go on a rant about something I have been thinking about a lot often. The music you play is ether something I have and love, or I love and than have after you play it.
    I do not podcast, but I consume about six hours a day of them. If it is necessary I will gladly download yours 6 times to keep it going. If it is just us rest assured that I thoroughly enjoy each of the clambakes.
    Thanks again,
    Big Ed

    Eat Well

    Be Good

    sorry i’m late – lots of good stuff in this one dave – one correction to a time warp type of slip – source code, rasterweb audio and egc all started in august of 2004 not 2005 – my how time flies huh 😉

    to your size of audience related question – depends on the producer’s goal really, some msm & commercial intending entities will use size and reach metrics to their advantage in securing sponsorships and advertisers because that’s what they all know, both on the buyer and the seller side – the “for love” podcasters of course could care less about metrics but they should care about scale: the slashdot, boing-boing, digg effect could economically effect an indie podcaster that spikes their audience if they don’t have the right hosting relationship – bittorrenting their feed helps negate this effect but i still don’t see adoption of this being broadly considered even though it should be…

    Thanks for the feedback, y’all. Did I really say I started in 2005? Math is hard.

    Ed, thanks for the kind words, and I’m glad you like the music. No need to download multiple times. That ain’t how we play the game around here.
