  1. John and Chris,

    super enjoyed the show. I’m not a marketing guy, but I’m learning more and more with each M-show and M-over-coffee. I vote for staying at your current venue – helps to present an more middle-america focus…though perhaps your audience is nowhere near middle-america…but it’s cool to think that it might be.

    Chris, you have one tight schedule. I just spent the past two weekend days attending Podcamp Pittsburgh 2 – a very nice event, and although considerably smaller in scope than the Boston or NYC shows, very on-target with regard to getting people learning, psyched about new media, and talking before, during and after the event. I conducted some 11 brief interviews of attendees and fellow presenters, which I’m posting to my vlog site http://logos.blip.tv.

    ..Alex.

  3. Thanks for mentioning Reactee.com . I set up and bought a shirt for a talk I gave yesterday on ways technology can help art shows and artists. It arrived in time at the hotel in Lancaster, PA (thanks to my wife FedExing it from Maine), and I was very pleased with how it looked — a nice title, “Tech Future & Art Fairs” with the TXT info that prompted a message back from me with a new tech idea for the art show directors at the session. The first TXT reply I put in was the del.icio.us url that had all the links mentioned in my talk. Several people tried it, and my plan is to send out a new tech idea for art fairs each week or so. I showed off the shirt and gave credit to you for the idea in my latest video podcast at http://blip.tv/file/357366#share . With this tangible benefit of listening, MOC moved to the top tier of my must-listen-to podcasts. Much appreciated!

  5. Alex – Sorry, I had some email problems and I was unaware that comments were stacking up. I’m glad you’re enjoying the shows, we will stay at DD, as the ‘bucks doesn’t open early enough. I’m going to do a concert tour shirt for Chris “Hello, Topeka!”
