C.A. Fire claims a Podcasters House

Hey guys – if you haven’t heard Doug (Dr. Floyd) from the Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd lost his house in the CA Fires.. and they’re taking up special donations to help him out until he can get his insurance money – http://www.doctorfloyd.com/doug/

Doug is currently staying with family and is in great health, but could use some funds to help him until his insurance comes through. Even if you have no money to spare, getting the word out to people who could give would mean the world!

Anything you can do to help spread the word to help out a fellow podcaster would be appreciated.


Podcasting Mania!

Wow…seems like a busy podcasting week for me.

Sunday night I was on the Typical Mac User Podcast with Victor Cajiao talking about doing things with your Mac. It was a lot of fun and got some good questions from the chat room. Victor always has a lively bunch hanging out during the show, and he knows how to work the crowd.

Monday night I got the privilege of hanging out and talking with Dean Jensen of the Soho Technology Podcast. Bruce Barr and I were on talking about Open Source in the Soho environment. Dean brought something up that I hadn’t thought about in a while. Smaller networks, or more specifically, small businesses needs are different from that of larger corporations. It isn’t a one size fits all world and I know that, and not having been involved with small businesses/small networks in the capacity that Dean has as a consultant in a long while kinda got lost somewhere in my mind.

*update* I almost forgot to mention that Chuck and I interviewed Dr. Pamela Gay Sunday about Her podcasting and of course, Astronomy…loads of fun. That should be coming out this week on Technorama.

Learn to Blog and Podcast at Myrtle Beach, SC

If you live in the South and are interested in Blogging, Podcasting, Video, or Social Networking, on April 19th in Myrtle Beach, SC is the place you want to be. With a focus on Networking and learning it looks like there will be something for everyone.

I have enjoyed the Podcast and New Media Expo (now: New Media Expo) in the past in part because it is a chance to meet people and well…network. Even though podcasting and blogging have connected me to people in ways that hasn’t been possible before, there is something to be said about meeting and learning from people face to face. This opportunity looks like another chance to do just that.

Usually all the conferences that deal with this kind of thing are not in my backyard but across the country. Not now! For me it is a 2.5 hour drive. This all looks very exciting, and fun…so visit the link below to find out the details on attending!

I’ll look for you there!
