Playing around with Odio. The audio snip in the last post in now in a new RSS feed called Psyberspace. Who knows what will come of it all. I have done this before, early in 2005 but it is easier now! Also it may be that I can find my voice in that sphere where cyber and psyche meet. It may be that it will sit well with my professional life.
In podcasting the “soundseeing tour” genre was coined in about 2005 and this project takes that to a whole new level. I am downloading to have a listen, even though I won’t be driving Interstate 5 for a while (it is a long way from New Zealand). My connetion is with Amy who is one of the creators, great to see this project online Amy!
And this is the thing that got me blogging, a new site from Doug Kaye – I love IT Conversations but there is not enough non-IT that I like to listen to, this might just do it! So I have it in my RSS feed and look forward to some good stuff.
I loved listening to William Gibson in that last post of mine! Doug Kaye – is that your invention? Genius. Now how can I set it up so that we can do that from my podcasts? Parhaps Evan Williams is on to that? But no ads!
To the suggestion that such attention to detail is part of his appeal, Matthiessen replies, “I think in any writing you’re paying attention to detail. E. M.

What they are is sort of the first articulation of something you knew but you’d never seen set down in print. And you say, Ah, yes! How true.”
I have been listening to a tape: The Zen of the Writers life – Loving it – a lot of the good stuff is also in this interview.
