Question of the Week - What'd Ya Learn from NAB/NMX? First, I want to thank everyone that reached out this last week. I had a couple private consults and the business of podcasting is looking really sweet. 

Second, I did a lot of Sponsored work, so I didn't get to do much of my own thing. I did learn about Sony's new software for the Mac, which is gonna make my editing easier. I talked with a couple media-supply companies and learned they are changing their models so podcasters can get assets they need for low prices.

I wish I could've spent more time on the NMX side, but I did get to shake a few hands and finally meet +Gary Leland face-to-face.

I learned that being the director of podcasting doesn't leave me much time to enjoy the conference, but I did get to hang with my buddies at night.I got to laugh - alot. I did have a fun conversation with Norm Pattiz. I got to hang with Adam Curry for a bit. I had a drunk wench try to kick me (and Rob Greenlee) in the face.  I got to hang with new peeps like +Seth Resler and some other "Radio dudes".  Thanks to all for helping through this process (sorry for the whining). I'm having fun downloading 1.4 gigs of audio that I now get to process. YIPEE!!!

Question of the Day - Promoting that "Special Show" You just finished an interview with someone whom you idolize. Maybe the President? Could be +Wil Wheaton or +Chris Hardwick . How do you promote that? Do you plan more than a Twitter campaign?

Usually just include them in my newsletter, write a blog post, and post on social media. I would do a press release if the person is super noteworthy.

Anybody else notice that +YouTube is not processing a 144p video anymore? The option was made for small screens like +Google Glass . Not sure if "Auto" is going to crunch it more - I thought it just chose between the quality options.

Apple Watch Extravaganza! April 10th Looms! - AppleWatch You have to watch this show. Why? Because its about Apple Watch and its also the last show of the season!

We should both come back with some great stories! Luke also got a new webcam, so his video is back to normal. YAY! Wearable Toda...

I'm just trying to understand what you're doing with Triberr that you can't do here? I've never used Triberr, and there isn't much in the way of an "about" section.

Question of the Day - Dream Interview Who would you want to interview and why (Living or dead)? What questions would you ask them? 

I would love to sit down with Edward R. Murrow and have a conversation with him about over 100 years of broadcasting. Would love to get his views on podcasting and how he would use it.

I am WAY behind, but have to jump in on this one. Living or Dead? Ronald Reagan. His ideals are still a force today, like him or not he has influenced at least 2 generations so far.

One of my favorite spots to get work done. Great food (Sonoma Chicken Sandwich is one of my favs), many choices of coffee and tea. Yola's is also active in Social Media Breakfast, so it's a destination to meet with clients and interact. WiFi is free and a little more secure than the others around Madison. Staff is friendly and will help you if you need it. Walk up and say hi to Lance and Lisa.

Awesome pizza, and many good extras! If you want a specialty pizza like the Margarita, Chicken Alfredo, etc. They are the place to go. If you order online, the system is a little buggy. I had to restart my pizza order a couple times. There was no way to delete the order otherwise.

Just was over there. Awesome store, fresh look. If you go to the mall for Apple help, you might be sitting for a while because it's always busy. But by coming over here, you are able to surpass the crowd and get one-on-one support.

I enjoy AJ Bombers burgers whenever I can. They have some great twists on the craft of making a hamburger, and their other sandwiches are pretty tasty, too. Need some peanuts? Their bombers can get you a bowlfull in a jiffy. And they're a lot of fun to watch.

Lots of Greasy Fries, peanuts and burgers. That is what Five Guys are all about. If you are hungry, you will get fed. The food is so-so. Not my first choice for where to eat.
