The Friday podcast will be on vacation this week and next. When it returns, on March 30, I’m thrilled to report that the show will have a new home on IT Conversations. I started out there with the Gillmor Gang back in May 2004. In the summer of that year, according to Lucas Gonze’s alternate history, podcasting was born.
Two years later I struck out on my own in order to pursue a different style. I’ve done 42 episodes in that style, I’ve worked hard to make each of them worth listening to, and I’m proud of the results.
I’m delighted to now bring my show to IT Conversations, a groundbreaking operation that continues to thrive under the guidance of my friends and mentors Doug Kaye and Phil Windley, and thanks to a crew of other folks who keep the bits flowing.

Glad to hear the good news. You’re a great fit with IT Conversations, that’s for sure. Even before you left Gillmor Gang, there were at times an obvious lack of compass steering the Gang.
My biggest complaint was that one had to listening closely for long periods of time to gain a benefit from what was said. It was kind of like eating tiny oyster crackers one after another until I was full. However, your podcasts, screencasts, blog, everything is like fast-acting vitamin B shots. More direct, less time intensive (for listening that is) and always, always something beneficial to be had by the end. And even better often what you’re discussing is not so rooted in the the pop cultural online here and now. Instead I found I’m running into the topics you’re discussing often two weeks from when I listen, or three months or even six months from the pubdate of a given podcast or screencast. I think your style is perfect for me at least.
Thanks for doing this – it will be easier for people to find your stuff. Also it would be good if you can keep doing your links on delicious.
To me, your Friday podcasts have been far and away the best things out there. Many podcasts are not worth a single listen, but I’ve listend to some of yours more than once. I hope your position at Microsoft will let you expand both your access and reach – if they are smart they will let you be as open as possible. Hang in there.
Congrats! Excellent news!
