[fr] Suw et moi avons enfin enregistré le fameux podcast-conversation dont nous parlons depuis notre première rencontre, en mai 2004. C'est en anglais et c'est assez long, mais on s'en est pas trop mal sorties pour une première!
Each time Suw and I meet, we talk about recording a podcast together. We met for the first time in June 2004, and if I believe the Podcasting and Beercasting Thoughts I wrote a little less than a year later, that was indeed when we first started talking about using audio to record conversations.
I’m definitely sure that we talked about it at BlogTalk 2. I don’t think Skype was in the air then, but we talked about hooking up our phones to some audio recording device, and left it at that. At that time, people were getting excited about “audioblogging” (did we already talk about “podcasting” back then? It seems a long, long time ago) and we agreed that were audio really became interesting was in rendering conversations. (See the Podcasting and Beercasting Thoughts post for more about that.)
Anyway, now we have Skype, and Call Recorder (which reminds me, I need to write up a post about the ethics of recording audio conversations), and we finally got round to doing it. It’s a bit long-ish (40 minutes — not surprising if you know us!) and has been slightly edited in that respect, but honestly, it’s not too bad for a start.
Here is roughly what we talked about.
- San Francisco, web geek paradise
- City sizes (see this London-SF superimposition map)
- The cat/geek Venn diagram (Twitter error message)
- I really want a Wii
- IRC screen names
- The difficulties of pronouncing S-u-w
- When geeks name children: A unique identifier or anonymity?
- Stalkers and geoinformation
- Perceptions of security
- Giving out your phone number and address, and personal boundaries
- Airport security (background…)
- Risk and expectations of risk
- Death, religion, and the medical industry
- Naming our podcast… something about blondes, apparently
- Clueless marketeering from the Fabric nightclub in London
- The repercussions of having a blog that people think is influential (even if
you don’t think it is)
