I was a contestant on the inaugural episode of Internet Outrage Machine, aÂ new 5by5 podcast that’s sort of a comedic game show about current events. You know, like Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me, but rougher and raunchier and geekier. Give it a listen, if you dare!
Hey y’all! Fans of the podcasting network 5by5 have been mostly lovingly coined “Jackals” for their sometimes helpful and sometimes heckling input in the network’s live IRC chatroom. One motivated jackal, Mike Beasterfeld, has been conducting a series of interviews with other jackals. My episode aired today, should you care to listen! And you can… Continue reading Jackal Interview
I swear, I don’t know what I’d do if we’d never come up with this whole interconnected awesomeness thing. I re-launched my business earlier this year, which involved picking a new business name.

For some reason my mind wandered to the TV show Nashville, and I had an epiphany. (No, stay with me.) In case you haven’t been… Continue reading QR codes and teenage girls
I’ve been meaning to craft a more thoughtful and ever-delayed post on leaving my job and going the solopreneur route, but I realized that maybe I should get something out there in the meantime to pimp the fact that I was on QUIT!. Twice! QUIT! is a new 5by5 show, in which Dan and his… Continue reading A brief note on QUIT! and quitting
