Ericast 56 - "Next Generation Avatars"

Not too much fluff (which might be good, or bad?) but quite a bit of talk...

Topics, in no particular order:

  • First Crack 76. Paying Attention with J Wynia
  • Logitech Products > Webcams & Video Services > Logitech Video Effects > FAQs
  • Making Movies in Virtual Reality
  • The house in which I grew up
  • - Great Prices
  • YouTube - My Webcam (which is actually someone else's webcam)

Remember to call 206-339-ERIC (which is 206-339-3742 for those of you who don't like letters), or e-mail eric at, with any and all questions, problems or worries!

Ericast 55 - "Tribute to Joe"

A slightly different Ericast this week -- one single topic and not too much fluff. Whaddya think? (On a technical note, my levels were a little hot, so there's some clipping in the audio... but it's not the content, it's the delivery, right? Or maybe it's not delivery, it's DiGiorno. Which, by the way, is another Kraft product... just like Cheez-Its. Wow.)

Since I really am looking for input on the whole "what makes a good manager" thing (listen to the show to find out what that means), remember to e-mail me (eric) at, or spend a few cents to call 206-339-ERIC (206-339-3742) and share your thoughts.

Ericast 54 - "Money Isn't Green?!?"

I'm trying something new this week, because I realized our servers at work will be down tomorrow morning (for a building-wide power outage) just as most of you are going to rush to download this exciting episode of the Ericast. So, I'm going straight to for this episode. Let me know how it plays/downloads for you. (It sure took a long time to upload!)

This is one of the better episodes of the Ericast that I've done in recent weeks (if I do say so myself, though I still think my humility is my best quality) even though the topic doesn't sound that interesting. Who would have thought that a $10 bill could inspire so much discussion?

Not only do we feature the return of a popular feature (can you feature a feature?), but we also close with a Tim Lemmens song. Remember to check out Tim's site at if you like his music. And for all the other Ericast-related sites, check out the "ericast" tag at

As always, do share your thoughts by calling 206-339-ERIC (which is 206-339-3742 on your touch tone -- or rotary -- phone) or email me (eric) at Enjoy!

Ericast 53 - "Talkin' about Cheez-Its!"

Yes, indeed, our discussion this week revolves around Cheez-It® Baked Snack Crackers.

Did you know what you can do with a Cheez-It? Wow. And, as I discuss, there's a girl on MySpace who might be able to show you. Yikes.

Other topics-of-note can be found through my tags. Look for the "ericast" tag (my profile is "emlarson", but you shouldn't need that), and you'll see the stuff I just tagged under today's date.

Let me know if that system makes sense or not. It's pretty convenient for me, but if it doesn't work for you, I don't want to do it; it's all about making you, the dedicated listener, happy.

206-339-ERIC (that's 206-339-3742 for the dial-by-letter impaired) or eric at to get in touch! And please do!
