What a great and well executed idea Dan! This has become my new favorite ~28 minute MP3. = )

While listening to your podcast I thought of something. It's not original but I'm glad it cemented in my mind:


1. More and more, individuals are becoming publishers of content.
2. To attract and keep an audience they learn how to be a 'good' publisher.
2.1 They learn to write well.
2.2 They learn to be reliable (not lie, include sources) and consistent (publishing regularly).
3. They experiment with publishing audio clips, audio mixes and video clips.
4. They learn communication skills.
4.1 They host projects among many bloggers on their site.
4.2 They do real world interviews.

I'm excited about the future of blogging. As always, you've inspired me. = ) Let's create from the void!

Teriffic! Some great rarities in there, some nice super-chill music for me to code to. I especially liked Sunrise into the Bossa Jazz Trio. Whens the next one coming out?

Thanks for listening. We'll see if I get the urge to do this again, music happens to be a major passion of mine, but never gets a look in on The Huge Entity.

Eclectic blogging catalysing the void...

Nice! You might enjoy this little fact.

I was testing some multimedia broadcast software that connects a local sportscast to our Island wide cable television system, putting the audio feed through channel 10 to 30,000 + homes.

So anyhow, I needed some music to test with so I played your full podcast for half an hour on the TV.

I didn't get any comments, but I'm sure you got some airtime!

Wow... Huge Entity goes global, I'm flattered. Where do you live? There can be only one Cutie Programmer...

I liked it, Beginning kind of sounded like a track on off-spring.
