Talkie - Twitter, moving, PodCamp NYC, ideas for a new conference, BlogHer, Atlanta Web 2.0 Community, Amber's blog turns five

Show notes

In this talkie, Amber and I talk about lots of things that have been going on in our lives the past few weeks and take live questions via Twitter. It went sort of like this:

  • Twitter sucks us in, and now we can't escape. Questions from Grayson and Michael Bailey taken over Twitter are answered as we record.
  • We moved, which explains the even lower than usual sound quality of this episode. Here are the photos of our apartment we mentioned.
  • Experiences from PodCamp NYC. Amber has a question for John Havens, one of the organizers.
  • Amber is kicking around ideas for a new conference and would like to hear your suggestions.
  • We're heading to Chicago for BlogHer July 27 and 28.
  • Discussion of Atlanta's Web 2.0 community. We even said "Web 2.0" without a hint of irony.
  • Amber's blog is turning five! Party at Manuel's next Friday.

Glad to have you back on the airwaves Rusty and Amber. I was honestly schocked when you were talking about regional bias.

It's funny because I was smirking at a story yesterday about people who were shocked by what Imus said. I believe the quote was "I had no idea that this kind of bigotry still existed".

For me; a gay, left handed, red haired, Libertarian vegan; this statement was laughable because of course bigotry still exists in many forms; I experience more than one of them every day. Then you talk about some prick in some ball room in NYC saying he can ignore you because you're from the south!

Now I feel the same way that the quoted person above felt! I mean I guess I knew that people still think southeners are slow and dumb but I didn't think that people still expressed it in public! How did you stop yourself from confronting him?

Good show.... and one more thing. As much as I would like to support your pole dancing career Amber, I'm afraid it's going to be impossible. I was telling John the other day that I get such a kick out of your flicker site because we have a lot of the same interests, but I get uncomfortable, like I'm looking at my sister naked, when I come across the occasional flickr pic of you in a sexy nightie.

It's like "oh, old gas station picture, interesting..... look there, a detail from a architecturally interesting building.... very nice; OH! Oh no.... there's Amber in a night gown!

LoL.... you guys are great
