#42 Conferences Are a Good Thing™

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 7, 2017

We’re talking this week about conferences. Events, shows, gatherings, meet-ups… whatever you call them, they’re incredibly valuable to attend, both personally and professionally (if you do it right). This show has me talking about why these events are so great, the conferences I like to attend, and a tip (two actually) on how to get the most out of them.

#32 The Website Lives!

Posted on Wednesday, Mar 15, 2017

Woohoo! Opensourcecreative.org is up and alive for your listening and browsing pleasure. Bathe your earballs in its magnificence! Also… let me know if anything isn’t quite working right. This week’s show is all about the site’s migration, what I used to make it, and hopefully an option or two on what you should do if you need a website of your own. Use the cool listen-y widget thing to hear all about it (unless you got this through your podcatcher, in which case, use that).

#31 Keeping Your Project Data Safe

Posted on Wednesday, Mar 1, 2017

This week’s episode is about some critical stuff: making sure that the digital data that we produce doesn’t get lost. So we’re talking back-ups, passwords, and encryption. It may not sound like as fun and exciting of a topic as other things we’ve discussed, but it’s monumentally important.

#30 Let's Talk about Social Media

Posted on Thursday, Feb 23, 2017

This week we’re talking about social media networks and the kind of love/hate relationship we have with them. We’re often at odds with the privacy policies of a lot of social media platforms. Furthermore, the level of discourse that people have on these sites isn’t always all that great. But at the same time, as people working in the creative fields, we have a need to get our work in front of an audience. Social media has the largest audiences.

#28 Defeating Comparisonitis

Posted on Wednesday, Feb 8, 2017

This week we have a more positive (I hope) follow-up to last week’s rant. We’re talking about comparisonitis… that feeling of “I can’t do that” when you see the incredible work of another artist or find out about another person’s level of success in a field similar to yours.
