#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.

#7 Collaborating: Plays Nice with Others

Posted on Saturday, Oct 18, 2014

This episode of the Open Source Creative Podcast covers a topic that we see all over the place in the creative world, but it seems to be especially prevalent in the web communities of open source creative projects. I’m specifically referring to the topic of collaborative projects or community projects.

In this episode, I respond to a topic that was brought up here in the comments of an earlier episode, as well as on Twitter. Namely, the notion of selling extensions, add-ons, assets, and so on for open source tools. Specifically, this was brought up as it pertains to the Blender Market, a site by the folks at CG Cookie with the purpose of letting Blender users sell these kinds of things to other Blender users. It turns out that this is a pretty interesting topic to talk about (I should know… I did it 3 times).

#5 Status Report, the first!

Posted on Thursday, Oct 2, 2014

This episode is a bit more of an update (well… it’s the first one, so I suppose “announcement” makes more sense than update) on the personal projects I’m working on through at least the end of the year… a lot of writing going on in there. I also touch a bit on the new sleep schedule I’ve been testing out for a couple months now. And I ponder an overall structure for this podcast itself.

#4 Wherein Jason Rants… a lot

Posted on Thursday, Sep 25, 2014

In this week’s episode I get a bit ranty about a few topics. Not only do I expand upon a bit of a fired-up digression I made in last week’s episode (regarding the nature of how people think about the computer graphics industry… especially people who have been in and around it for a while), but I poke at a few other things like clickbaity headlines from the uniform school of web marketing and the meaninglessness of the term “professional”. All in all, I’d say it’s great fun. Hopefully you think so, too.

#3 Licensing and Crowdfunding

Posted on Friday, Sep 19, 2014

This focus on this week’s podcast was more on the business side of things; talking about licenses for creative work and relating that to crowdfunded projects. And I end the episode with a direct question to you because, well… I’m not sure what I think about it. This one went a little long and got a little bit rambly. Sorry about that.
