Interview – Struggling Entrepreneur

I don’t usually cross post on my blogs but this is a link to my other blog where I’ve posted a link to an interview I did with Fred Castaneda, host of the “Gain Control of Your Day” and “The Struggling Entrepreneur” Podcasts.

Fred interviewed me during the Podcast and New Media Expo in Ontario back in September. It’s mainly about the business side of podcasting but you may find it interesting!

Thanks Fred!


Blushing at the Airport!

Sitting outside the gate at Ontario International Airport waiting for my first flight to Atlanta.

Bought a t-Mobile day pass for $9.99 so I can check my mail and send a few tweets. Seeing as I had my notebook out, I thought I’d catch up on some podcasts and tuned into Allisons Nosillacast podcast to see what she was saying about me!

I can feel my face going red as I listen!

Thanks so much for the comments on the presentation Allison, I sweated long and hard putting it together and it caused me a lot of anxiety delivering to an audience of my peers. The fact that it has been so well received was extremely rewarding and makes all the hard work worthwhile.

If you want to hear what she says, check out her nosillacast podcast. I really suggest you listen to it all as she gives a great review of the whole Expo experience, my 15 minutes of fame is around the 15 minute mark.

As an aside, I travelled from the Hotel to the Airport with P.W.Fenton and Andy Mc from Slashdot. Andy had been recommended to check out my session and had bought the video that appeared on sale at the Expo. How cool is that!

Gotta go, just about to board.

Thanks again Allison.

What do you get when 4 Mac geeks go out to dinner?

NosillaCast @ iPhones of course!

Guess which one is mine ;-)

Allison has put together a great summary post all about the Expo here and has recorded a podcast all about it.

Thanks for the great comments Allison, I’ll give you that $100 next time I see you ;-)

Seriously, I had a blast and it was great to meet up with Allison, John and Ron

Safely at the Podcast Expo

If you’ve been following my twitter feed you’ll probably know already that I’m safely ensconced in my hotel here in Ontario, California.

After an unnecessarily long journey, (a 3 hour wait, 9 hour flight, a 2 hour wait and a 4.5 hour flight – I wish there was a direct connection to Ontario) I made it in late Wednesday evening. After a few hours kip, I’m up and about planning the next few days and catching up on emails and RSS feeds.

Busy time ahead as as well as attending the sessions and giving my own presentation tomorrow, I’ve got a few meeting and interviews with other podcasters.

Today is the SoCalPodcamp day, but before that kicks off I’m nipping out to the local AT&T store to pickup an iPhone. I was going to get a cab but Adam from the Maccast has kindly offered to give me a lift!

As well as the Podcamp today, I’m meeting with Rob from Podcast 411. To appear on Robs podcast about podcasters is a bit of a badge of honour so I’m really looking forward to that and I won’t brow beat him too much as to why it’s taken so long to get me on ;-)

Tomorrow, there’s another short Interview with Cali Lewis of GeekBrief TV fame although she can’t make it in person due to German measles – eek! – It’ll be a quick 15 minutes via a remote link.

Saturday, there’s the session on the iProng booth between 11:30 and 13:30 and also a chat with Adam and Victor on a special Live talkshow podcast.

Once you add into the mix the general sessions, the show floor and the various meetups and “ahem” after hours networking events, I’ll be grateful for the long flight(s) home to catch up with myself.

I’ll post updates and links along the way so watch this space (plus Twitter)

The Expo approaches…

Mac Tutorials _ ScreenCastsOnline.pngIn final panic mode now to get some commissioned work completed, get this weeks show published and finish off my presentation for Friday before jetting off on Wednesday.

Luckily, there’s the Podcamp on the Thursday before the Expo starts so if you see me at the back of the room feverish working on my laptop, I’ll be doing one of two things, either activating my new iPhone that hopefully I will have picked up that morning, or finishing off my presentation. I’ve good reason to believe I’ll probably be doing both!

If you’re around the Expo, be sure to stop me and say hello. It looks like this years event will be much bigger and busier than last year and it’s the last time for Ontario, next year it’s Las Vegas!

If you want to stop by the iProng booth on Saturday lunchtime, I’ll be on hand to give iPod demos or just chat to anyone happens to drop by!
