Spoken Words

A couple of interviews that involved me were recently released, and I’ve been very tardy in linking to them.  Life has been like that of late: I passed a major career anniversary last week and completely failed to note it.  I was lucky not to overlook Mother’s Day, which is not really something you want to do when there are children in the house.

So anyway, the interviews:

I’ll be showing up again on the Web 2.0 show as part of an ensemble cast in their discussion of ma.gnolia, but I don’t know when.  I’ll probably linkblog it when it comes out.

Ya know, I remember when interviews were printed, not audible, which was preferable because I tend to sound more intelligent in print than I do in person.  Of course, I also remember acoustic-couple modems, so maybe it’s not that I’m less intelligent so much as more senile.

    Hey! I have seen you present twice now and you sure seem to be pretty intelligent in person to me!

    Zeldman seemed a little distraught that there wasn’t a whole lot of editing done to the podcast interview – he said something about not liking to hear all his “um”s and “er”s. But I like to do as little editing as possible because I think it makes things more real. So no, do not fear, you did not sound unintelligent or anything crazy like that. Quite the contrary. Sure, I could’ve asked you guys to talk about why CSS is important or something, but c’mon, we’ve all heard that before.

    Thanks for the link! Fortunately we recently switched to a new, more robust server just in time to handle the influx of hits from

    Very cool. I have been an admirer of your work/books and now am glad to have the opportunity to “hear” you, Jeffrey and Jason in the interview.

    Josh: please do!

    Jeff: thanks!

    Amber: true enough. Glad your new server could stand up to the onslaught of my two dozen readers!

    Mike: not to my knowledge. You’d have to ask Josh and Amber, though.

    Rodney: no, thank you.

    I listened to the web20show-mp3 and I am really attired in this loosely kind of sending information over the internet. A friend of mine is big in webcasting. Maybe I will start working with this medium by orienting myself at Thanks for inspiration!
