“There Are Too Many Skeptic Podcasts”

I’m catching up on blogging things from the past. A few months ago I heard the episode of Skepticality that was the audio of Tim Farley’s presentation from Skepticamp 2011 in Atlanta. It was entitled “Please Don’t Start Another Blog or Podcast!” I like Tim Farley’s stuff on Skepticality, but I’m going to say right […]

More Lost Ebook Sales

Here’s yet another story of a lost sale. These are starting to pile up. Book publishers take note. I heard an interview with Gary Taubes on episode #153 of Skepticality and I was interested in his new book Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. I went to see if it was […]

Ebook Pricing vs Revenue

It’s amazing how often I see some variant of the phrase “We can’t afford to price our ebooks lower because we have costs to recoup.” 10 minutes ago I saw that in the current Locus magazine interview with John Picacio. He in general seems like someone who gets it, both here and in the Sidebar […]

Evolution Rx

Today I listened to Skepticality #116 which was an episode featuring Dr. William Meller talking about his book Evolution Rx. I thought the conversation was interesting enough that I impulse bought a copy of his book for the Kindle. I don’t have any profound insights, but I liked what he said and was willing to […]

What Do I Do Next?

This morning I listened to episode #98 of Skepticality which was a follow-on discussion to the whole “Where Do We Go From Here?” talk of a few years ago. They referenced a PDF document with 100 points of action that people can take as a skeptic. I don’t really identify as a skeptic even though […]

Dragon*Con Wrapup Part 1

Here’s my wrapup of this year’s trip to Dragon*Con. This is probably about the latest I can do it and have my friend brain cells intact enough to remember things. It might should go without saying that there is a looooong post warning, but I’ll try to spice it up with enough pictures to keep […]

Around the Podosphere Part 3

I’ve heard so much stuff of note I keep forgetting things I wanted to mention. One of those is the recent Skepticality episode that had Philip Zimbardo as the guest. I saw him on the Daily Show recently, and also on some random documentary on Sundance about the psychology of the abuse of power. In […]

More on Podcastercon

I am listening to Skepticality and they are going to PodcasterCon. Damn it! I enjoyed meeting Swoopie last year and it would be nice to meet Derek. However, the giant pile of work is still there and in fact is higher now than it was a few days ago. The day job has a big […]

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 […]
