End of Summer Update

An update as the summer comes to a close, including thoughts on my latest journeys to Hacker Camp, Russia, and back in Amsterdam.

Also an important announcement: a live podcast event this September 27th in Amsterdam!

CTRP480 From the Mountains in São Miguel, Azores

São Miguel, the main island of the breathtaking Azores has been my adventure this summer, traveling in circles around the island from the highest peaks to the sea and back again. It is a place of incomparable beauty and beyond that, a people who have such a good hearted caring soul you dare not ask a small question unless you’re ready for the extensive information and help they’re going to insist on giving you. While the world watches as society evolves in such a loving and open way in the US and such horrid events unfold in Tunisia, France, and Kuwait, here on the island things are as they have surely always been. Cows are grazing. Fish are jumping. Tourists taking pictures. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

What was I talking about? Oh yeah, I recorded this podcast on one of our last nights in the Azores on a trip that has taught me a lot and inspired some future journeys in the effort to experience and learn even more.

CTRP479 It’s Nothing: A Conversation About Humanity

Over the past year (maybe more) my friend Yves has been on a journey of self discovery and observing human behavior. Each time he returns to Amsterdam we talk about his observations and attempts to change what is considered “normal everyday” communication. This time, we bring microphones to one of those conversations, in attempt to bring in you the audience to discuss people, communication, needs, and yes – the meaning of life. Never thought I’d write that as a podcast title :)

CTRP478 Talking Podcasting and Current Projects

Some ask where I’ve been, but actually I never stopped producing podcasts with Source Code Berlin and Newz of the World having lots of new content coming at you quite regularly. Meanwhile on today’s program I’m talking about the world of pocasts and how it is changing, what these changes mean for us in general. Also an announcement about upcoming projects both here on this channel and elsewhere. It’s a classic podcast update as many of us used to do in the golden days of podcasting.
