Ericast 64 - "COTF, Part 1"

Finally, you get to hear what was behind those mysterious "Ericast Updates" that dropped into the feed this past week! Here's the first part of my presentation at Classrooms of the Future. (If you want to see the sample presentation that I'm talking about, it's available online, as are all my notes and the PowerPoint as well.)

Music this week is a real, genuine full song from Elizabeth Hunnicutt -- entitled "Alright", from her "Finding Me Here" album. What she lacks in spelling phrases like "All Right" she more than makes up for in musical talent. If you like the song, do what I did: buy the CD and support a local artist!

If all goes according to plan, I'll include the rest of the seminar talk in next week's episode. Or maybe stretch it out into two, depending on how I edit it. Let me know what you think -- call 206-339-ERIC (206-339-3742) or e-mail me!

Ericast 63 - "Not Quite Ready"

So, what's new this week?

I talk about Garrick Van Buren's wife (as heard on a recent First Crack Podcast) and compare her to the Country Crock woman. (Maybe I should do an episode dedicated to Casey DeFranco? Hmmm...)

I end up discussing Windows Live Local, and make reference to an awesome example from the Gopher Ordnance Works, which won't make any sense to you unless you listen to the podcast (and even then, it won't make much sense unless you've listened to my previous podcasts or know how much I love the place).

But before I get to that... this past week I re-met Elizabeth Hunnicutt, but you won't be hearing from her because her CDs haven't come in the mail yet. And I talked with the CEO of Click.TV, but you won't be hearing more about that until they update a couple features soon and I have more to talk about. (It's really awesome, though!)

Basically, I'm a bit preoccupied because I'm ramping up to present at little local technology conference, so that's where my mind is at right now. With any luck, you'll hear clips from my presentation in upcoming episodes of the Ericast!

Ericast 62 - "Tracking Your Attention"

Techie-geeky stuff this week! Featuring the buzzwords of Drupal, Mambo and Joomla!

No, I'm not kidding. Those are real words. Or product names, to be slightly more precise.

Also featuring discussion of Garrick Van Buren's tracking concepts published in ID3 magazine; be sure to check those sites out as well!

And remember to e-mail your comments/feedback/thoughts to me (Eric) at, or call our easy-to-dial-and-remember listener feedback line at 206-339-ERIC (206-339-3742).

Ericast 61 - "Selling the Garage!"

After a long couple days of helping out with our mega garage sale (and with a couple more days to go!)... I'm too tired to be my usual witty, brilliant and humble self.

But this episode does contain a huge, major news update. One that very few people will hear, I'm sure... but that's the price my friends and co-workers will pay for not paying closer attention to my podcast!

This week's relevant link: Go figure.

Despite my struggle to get this right in this particular episode of the Ericast, I can type here with confidence that the phone number to call is 206-339-ERIC (which is 206-339-3742). Or send an e-mail to eric at Enjoy!
