      Monday Podcast

      2 days ago

      Tomorrow's podcast will be slightly different. I have been asking Gus for a while if we could try livestreaming the podcast at 4:00 when there are more people from the office around. Tomorrow we are going to give it a shot. Right now it looks like it will be about either 4 or 5 central, but we need to get the Free Play crew to move up their shoot to make it happen. This is a one time deal and does not reflect a permanent change.

      Tragic accident

      3 weeks ago

      As some of you may have heard, a group from our community has suffered an incredible tragedy. Five friends were on a road trip from Virginia to Texas when their car was struck by another vehicle traveling in the wrong direction on the freeway. Three of the passengers died as a result of the collision while two others, Kevin DiCicco and Hannah Galbraith, were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Kevin has been released from the hospital but Hannah is still in intensive care recovering from her injuries. Both of them and all of their families will need whatever love, prayer and support you can offer. This is an unbelievable tragedy for so many people. Our hearts go out to all of them.

      If you would like to support Kevin & Hannah's recovery, please visit: http://www.gofundme.com/helphannah-kevin

      A fund has also been established for the funeral expenses of Kyle Mathers, Dale Neibaur and Holly Novak. You can find more information about that here: http://bit.ly/1gYwyrc

      Barb and Gus are busy with RTX tonight so Gav & I made the very questionable decision to invite our girlfriends Meg & Ashley on the show. Wish us luck.

      What should we talk about?

      Relevancy over time

      1 month ago

      "I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

      -- Thomas Jefferson

      Over the last year or so, Twitter has been a great place to hear from the audience while they watch the livestream. Going forward, I will be using my journal on the site. Might get a little bumpy once we launch the new version, but I'm very excited to be back home.

      So. What should we talk about? FYI, we are planning a Gavin or Google tonight, after a long hiatus.

      Hey everybody we are discussing the Free Play pilot. It's been almost a week since we aired it so you have had a little time to digest it. Any thoughts? Would you like to see more?

      Upcoming Speaking Engagements

      4 months ago

      2015 was meant to be a year of fewer speaking events for me as I focus on production, but I still have a couple of dates on the calendar of which I wanted to make you aware.

      April 15 -- Cannes, France at the MIP International TV festival. This is a stupidly expensive conference for international TV execs so I doubt many of you will be attending. But if any of you are lucky enough to live in Southern France or Northern Italy maybe we could do a meet up later in the week?

      April 22 -- Texas State University School of Communications. I will be taking over a graduate level Communications class for a session. If you attend the school, it may be possible to audit. Might be easier to come to Austin the next night for..

      April 23 -- University of Texas Austin This event is open to the public. Facebook event page here: www.facebook.com/events/1428984374065033/

      July 23 -- Vidcon 2015 (Anaheim) Keynote speech and various panels. Badge to Vidcon would be required.

      August 7 -- RTX 2015 Of course.

      October 1 -- University of Nebraska Lincoln A very rare midwest event. I have asked them to make this open to non-students. Stay tuned.

      Unfortunately I had to turn down just about everything else, due to schedule. Even the Buzz Aldrin event. I hope he doesn't walk on my face in response.

      Hello, I am sending you this message because I am doing a project in my English class at Stony Point High School today. I am going to ask you, as some one I respect, a question and I need you to respond as soon as possible.

      What was the best opportunity that you have ever taken?

      I will have the opportunity to share your response with my class if it is agreeable to you.

      I just read a really sad story about how isolated and sad Notch feels now that he's got more money than God. I know this sounds silly because you and he aren't besties or anything like that but maybe you and Gav could invite him to Austin to just hang out and relax. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ive-never-felt-more-...

      When you first started, how did you have enough motivation to continue? Granted, you were probably one of the first ones to do it and it just caught on. It was an instant spark. But with everyone fighting for a view or a sub or what have you nowadays, should you just quit or keep making 100 things even though it won't necessarily go anywhere?

      I saw this earlier this week and thought you would appreciate the clever idea and intricate detail of it. This production company called Realm Pictures connected with people on Chatroulette with a live FPS where they would give orders to the protagonist in this zombie world. It's pretty awesome and I thought it may be a cool thing to talk about on the podcast or something.

      So many podcast ago, you told the story of how you got a phone call, thought it was an ai and asked "is this a computer" they responded "do i sound that bad today?" and you could never figure out if it was or not. watching Podcast 337 i got a phone call, and had the exactly same scenario, i asked if she was a computer and got the exactly same line response xD just thought you would find it entertaining! seems it was a speech program after all

      Heyy it's my birthday, so can I get, like, a high five or something? Like, what's up? Just cuz we don't know each other you're gonna ignore me? Or maybe you're not ignoring me, but you're not NOT ignoring me. Whatever. Forget it. There's only 45 minutes left of my birthday in my timezone anyway.
