Catching Up

Posted on Tuesday, Jun 2, 2020

And now the show is back! This is a little re-cap episode where I try to catch you up on all the interesting things that have happened since the last episode of the show. More importantly, however, I have questions for you. I’m not recording while driving anymore, so that opens us up to a world of possibilities.

Lost Episode: The Argh of Paid Traffic

Posted on Tuesday, Nov 15, 2016

I told you I’d be making it a point to keep up with this show again. Well, here’s another episode. This one is a bit of an archive one. I actually recorded it a year and a half ago before the podcast went dormant. I just never got around to editing it and making it fit for sharing with you. Now I have, so here you go!Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.

Blender Conference 2016 (I’m back!)

Posted on Tuesday, Nov 8, 2016

Finally! At long last, after way, way too much time off, the podcast is back in action. Huzzah! This one is a little bit different from previous episodes. It’s a walking commute rather than a driving one. In this show, I talk about this year’s Blender Conference and all of the development going on with Blender there.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.

On Selfishness

Posted on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Yay! Another Open Source Creative Podcast episode. In this one, I have a long conversation with myself about the nature of art and open source software as it pertains to selfishness. Is art inherently selfish? Is it not? Is that a bad thing? And likewise for Free Software.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.

Let's Talk Spec

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 22, 2015

At long last, another Open Source Creative Podcast episode is here! Sorry for the long gap between episodes, folks… it’s been a crazy month. In any cast, this episode was recorded back in March and in it I talk about doing spec work (that is, speculative work) as a creative producer of things. Episode 15 really helped me nail down where I think my position is on this, so in a way, it’s an extension of that. It’s a bit of a contrast to the folks at nospec.com.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.

Idiots and Hypocrites: Used Digital Media

Posted on Saturday, Feb 28, 2015

I have a strange feeling that this episode is going to get me into a bit of trouble. Maybe. We’ll see. I get into details and backstory in the actual episode, but it all started with a question (or, better, replies to a question) regarding the resale of “used” digital content—specifically ebooks—in an episode of the Sell More Books Show, a podcast that’s pretty prevalent in the indie publishing scene. This episode is a bit of a rant launched from that premise.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
