If you live long enough, I guess you get to do just about everything

Bruce and Julian interviewed me tonight for their "Taking Notes" podcast. It was fun to do, and yes it is true that this is the first podcast I've listened to as well as the first one I've participated in. I snuck in earlier this evening and previewed a couple of past episodes to get a feel for how it was done.

If you're like me in that you don't do "Podcasts" don't sweat it. The audio is just an MP3 link you can click on to hear.

It's telling that for a communication tool we didn't use the phone. We used Skype. There really is no comparison, as the fidelity is so much better over a good VoIP codec like that. There are a few skips in it that seem to result from a timing issue with more than two people on a Skype conference, but they don't interfere at all with my rants, stories, and predictions.

Here's my official apology for anyone who has their feelings hurt by my rants, and any facts I either got wrong, misremembered, or completely made up out of whole cloth.
