Something that I’ve been quietly working on for the last while is finally ready for you to check out.

SSKTN.com is my podcasting network. Right now we just have a couple of shows we’re doing but I’m hoping to add more as time permits. You can read more about the backstory on where SSKTN came from on the about page.

Shows

  • Welcome to the Internet is a weekly(ish) podcast where I’ll be interviewing folks involved in technology and the arts. Our first interview launched this morning with Hemant Naidu of Naidu Photography – be sure to check it out and leave a comment.
  • Surviving Survivor is a weekly podcast that I am doing with my wife, Sue, where we chat about the television show Survivor. It started out as a way for me to test the waters of doing a podcast, talking into a mic and setting up a show – but we have lots of fun doing it each week so we’ll continue at least until the show is done this season.

I’m hoping to attract some sponsorship/advertisers to some of the shows we’ll be doing to help cover costs and build for the future. I’ll be sure to chat about that whenever I can.

Like what you hear? Got an idea for a show? I’d love to hear about it. Leave me a note on the contact form and we’ll chat.

Don McAllister is one of the first people I came across that was charging money for podcasting and instructional screencasts. It was through him that I discovered Izzy Video, who started doing instructional video podcasts on how to shoot video and who based his business model on what Don McAllister was doing.

Lots of great nuggets of tips and inside info for anyone interested in developing a new media based business or incorporating podcasting or screen casts into their existing business.

One indispensable piece of software that I use both personally as well as in my day job is a project/time management software package called Basecamp. First, a quote from 37 Signals, the company that made Basecamp:

For years project management software was about charts, graphs, and stats. And you know what? It didn

Dan Benjamin, host on the 5by5.tv podcast network, conducts a great interview with Greg Storey on all things business.

It should be required listening for those on both sides of the design, development and marketing of web work. There’s lots of great tips and info for everyone involved from Greg, who’s experienced the slow and steady growth of a design firm he started, Air Bag Industries to merging with Happy Cog, one of the most well known web design firms.

Of note is a great discussion on estimating for projects – again, both sides of the process need to listen to be able to understand the process better.
