Yes, I know it's technically possible to hack apart your video in Windows Movie Maker and emulate a cutaway, but if it was a piece of cake on a linear system in 1995 it should be even easier 15 years later!
Rather than me trying to flesh out what I talk about in the podcast itself, here's Dan's video (so you have an easy way of knowing what I was talking about). And, speaking of talking, do leave a message at 206-339-3742, e-mail me (eric) at ericast.com, or make a YouTube video like Dan's:

Anyway, this week's episode is about where I spent my teenage years. In hindsight I guess I don't talk much about my actual life and adventures there... but at least you get the basic geography of the place.
Let me know what you want to know: call 206-339-ERIC (206-337-3942) right now, or e-mail me (eric) at ericast.com.

That alone might tell you something about me, as this week's podcast explores my personality. As always, messages at 206-339-ERIC (a.ka. 206-339-3742) or e-mails to eric at ericast.com are eagerly anticipated and appreciated upon arrival.
So, what do I do? I support learning, explore solutions, battle entropy, and explain reality. The podcast goes through all that in a bit more detail. What energizes me is using technology to preserve history so it's accessible to others... but, in reality, I end up pondering "solutions in search of a problem." But I like producing a "product" too, which is almost the exact opposite. In some ways, my brain is a mess.
