The days are longer, so naturally, you spend longer days at work-like tasks *and* aimless junk, too. That must explain all the surfing I've done this evening.
First, what's up with the epidemic of weightloss posts from Zawodny and other blogosphere notables? Danny weighs in on his personal blog, and is proving to be a true now-Brit by invoking "stone." My feeling, as sycophantic as this likely feels to the reader: Danny's only "weight problem" is thinking that 182 pounds is heavy. Maybe it feels heavier when they're stone. But I do agree, it's the travel that gets you. I'll probably weigh in on my personal blog ... just as soon as I can figure out how to log into that Blogware interface. Hint, though: Anne Kennedy knows my secret. I told her over ... wait a minute, is this ironic or something? ... delicious Italian food. As most of us know, the secret (other than the dietary one I discussed with Anne, which only works when adhered to) is tantalizingly simple: don't work, don't travel, and live the life of Lance Armstrong or Beckie Scott. (Time to do a search on that second one, eh?) Oh well. Did I mention I got some new blades yesterday? K2's. Big wheels. Yeah! Told all my colleagues I'd blade to work once a week. "That's far," they said. They're right.
In other news, although she mentioned the interview earlier and it's now two weeks old, it deserves some linkage. Mona Elesseily of Page Zero is quoted extensively in this story in Direct Magazine, commenting on the exciting changes slated for Yahoo's Panama platform in the fall. Our subscribers can hear Mona's more extensive comments by listening to our recent "PZCast" podcast.
And thanks to the dude who phoned to help us with the popping p's on the podcast. This was a listener who left a phone message, and I called him back - and woke him, because he works the midnight shift.
Podcast perfection: we're working on it! As it happens I'd already discussed microphone technique at length with veteran radio man and SEO expert at large, Mike Grehan. He mentioned the fabric trick, too. But Mike, bless him, has a full mixer getup complete with two high-quality microphones... that he totes with him all around the world. So IT SEEMED LIKE A TERRIBLE WASTE when Mike and I finally sat down in London for an interview... and we wrapped up a good one... and he left his computer on... and then later in the evening after some Thai food and maybe a couple of Irish coffees, he convinced another colleague to be interviewed. Since the Audacity project on his desktop was still open and still running under my filename, he simply recorded over it. The veteran radio man owes me one!!!
It must be time to eat one of those small, healthy meals. Ciao!
