"I actually have another perception of it. Which is now that. I've become an angel investor and you mentioned angel. Investing your tweet search today. I realize that it's being one of the worst possibilities in an outcome is being too early because it's almost like the people who get there too early. You know the audience isn't ready and you said like all the first four years we just had to get people to believe they could use technology for podcasting and it really takes that. There's like this walk through the desert right like going. You know the the east coast of the west coast. there's this huge like barren desert and then maybe like the donner pass and snow. And then all of a sudden you get to california. And i feel like if you're starting in your those people who are the pioneers you kind of wind up dying somewhere in arizona or in the middle of the desert and then it's the people who start maybe after the donald trump or whatever who pick up and say you know what i found california here. Or here's the oil in texas. Here's the here's the golden california yes. I know that that's true. But yeah but i don't accept that for for own experience of the situation. Water at bridge look. I've made a lot of money. I'm not complaining. Money isn't an issue here. You know what i wanted to do and didn't get to do was to build a a development organization according to my values without the kinds of limits. I had the first time around. I mean you know. I imagine i did angel based company and my angel is guy was named bill jordan and He was. I would guess he was probably about my age when i first met him. I totally given up on any form of investment. I was so tired of meeting with the. Vc's little office. On san antonio road in palo alto. And i had one person working with me and anna. This guy bill jordan wanted to meet with us and i said no you meet with them. I don't wanna talk. I'm just gonna write code. I'm going to go to thing you know. At and eight my partner comes in and he puts check down the table for fifty thousand dollars. He really would like to talk to you okay. This doesn't i'm gonna tie it. Was that kind of relationship. And it was very collegial. I love the idea when it works. It's wonderful the angel investment stuff. So i what was your idea with him. Jobless tack think tank was a long story on that one but His company called living video tax started in eighty one and before that had been a developer personal offer Visit calc Wow yeah so busy. People donau was lotus. One two three before. Mitch kapor did it certainly excel long before mitch kapor. Nbc cal caper. Mitch kapor was I mean i was an author. I had a contract with them. I didn't. i was an employee they pay me and i had a percentage and but law. It's a really long story. But yeah i know all those guys and and then We start a company at around the product and And it didn't go very well until until that moment and then it started then. Things started clicking And we ended up burton with symantec. And that's how i hooked up with the kleiner guys and 'cause they were really. I mean i did the deal. John door in I asked it will put which instead of buying me out. Would you fun me. And he said no. We're going to the problem is they. They never understood. I don't think i mean i don't. I'm not an easy thing for them to understand because the world thinks the programmers are fungible and uncreative and not leaders in all kinds of very negative seems to have changed from that period of time. I don't know if it has. I think it's you know. I think y combinator does get credit program for saying we're going to invest in developers and they're going to be the the tip of the spear why comedy ends a i would say that is a positive thing. I always thought that incubators were good idea. I really did. I wrote about when they were out of fashion. I said you know we shouldn't give up on some quickly. Because you know because developers need help now and if you can take some of the functions of of running a company and you know factor them out so that you don't have to reinvent them from every single company that's a good idea but But i venture. Capital has changed a lot too. I mean if you think about who would the venture capitals. Where in those early days. Now i don't think i don't think so because i don't think we're trying at any of the big ideas to be honest with you. I think we're getting is a lot of derivative products that are in the four square of tired changing. You know or the uber of how many this is. I saw this when i was at. Nyu at twenty ten twenty seven somewhere in there and they were starting up their own incubator. Sort of thing and i was in the journalism school there. And so i was on their network. The the students would come to me in this. I want to come up with a great idea. So i can be the next october. Go that's asked backwards what it can't be the next soccer. Fuck you in whatever you want people that try really big weird ideas and i think the. Vc's are never going to do that because species are bankers. And that's how they look at the world in the they need a bankable idea. They are definitely looking for things that can. They're looking to take the risk out and have a clear path to whatever amount of revenue and clear path to exit and scowl and really outlandish ideas They get a lot of egg on your face from them.

"I don't think they get off on that one. I think they have i noticed. The times has cure Mcneil donald donald mcneil so incredibly knowledgeable person about a pandemics and viruses and into whenever he's written Rights and article. He does one every few weeks. I stop everything and sit down and read it. Because i know there's going to be information in there. That makes a difference so they've got somebody in there who understands the technology of viruses. Why don't they have somebody in there. Who understands the technology of social networks. But they are all over the map. I mean i've watched. Rachel maddow do iran for fifteen twenty minutes. And i love rachel motto. But i was very disappointed this because she was ranting about facebook. There was no substance to anything she was saying but boy did she make it sound insidious where pernicious word i mean. It may be questioned everything else every other time. She gets into that mode where she's painting. Something is being really dark and evil. It made me wonder. Does she really understand this or even worse. She does understand and she's just decided. I think there's a lot of that to the press response to facebook You know we've just decided to do a little bit of deflection here because they screwed up the two thousand sixteen election not facebook journalism screwed that up how did it screw it up just by covering hillary's emails hillary's emails incessantly and it's all come out now. They're it was there. Was this book called clinton cash written by a republican consultant. And they figured this would work and it did and they dangled this out in front of the new york times and they thought it was fascinating. They ran with it. So there's something to for emails. She's screwed up something here you know. We'll come on main. I'm sure No she didn't screw up anything that that should have been dispensed within five minutes yet. It drag out an determined. The course that we're on right now you know you want to find responsibility for two hundred and twenty thousand americans dead. Some of that has to go to the new york times actually. No let's say be honest. All of it does because get us out that trump would not have gotten elected. I see we still would have had the problem with the susceptible population. That's susceptible to trump right. I mean but we would naturally have trump. What do you think of the algorithms role in all of this. The fact that if something is in centenary Or you know evoked strong emotion. A person or maybe place to their worst stinks.

That's what i like to think about and write about and talk about you know so. It's a great time to be alive for that because there's been an awful lot of media being created and i don't agree with you that i am responsible for twitter. Well i i bring it up. Because i remember we met in the The office i guess in the two thousands and there were a bunch of us in our. Let's call it early thirties.

Podcasting and the Future of Audio
"What is a quote podcast? Which seems obvious but isn't it? As a reminder please note that the content here is for informational purposes only should not be taken as legal business tax or investment advice or be used to evaluate any investment or security and is not directed at any investors or potential investors in any six NC fund. For more details please see a success dot com slash disclosures. So I mean the the interesting here is in the midst of a really interesting moment of change and there is internal conflict within the community about that question so historically it's been largely tethered to the notion the RSS feed it's It's basically an audio file or a a medium distribution that largely happens through You know the technology that was carried over from blogging and now with the entrance of of spotify and Span Pandora's stepping up And Google beginning to do whatever they're going to do on search inside apple already as an entrenched player as well yeah absolutely media and Luminary just announced their sort of big hundred billion fundraise and affected gonNA launch in July. A couple of days ago with a lot of exclusive content right so so how does like exclusive podcast fit in with the old definition especially with the luminary announcement that was like strong pushback from parts of the community has been around for a while and and generally folks who really believe in the open ecosystem and so we have a situation in? Which like you know. Technical definition is not the popular definition anymore. And if we go from the perspective of what the ordinary consumer things of Pie task that is it becomes a cultural question technical question which by the way I wanNA say parallels the history of the web because this to me reminds me very much of early blogging absolutely debates about what is a blog. What is an article? What is a website and there? Was this almost religious actors. Essential debate between the early kind of in fact some of the same people because Dave Winer one of the people also important to the development podcasting. He's exactly he he's I think he was technically the first person to do podcast in two thousand three years something or one of the early people and he's also specified the RSS feed which drives the pipes and plumbing an ecosystem of podcasting but today users don't even think of podcast that way it's like it's just recorded audio of people talking Gavin Times more. Call that a podcast. Yeah what am I? Very things on. The people always call our videos. Podcasts of early again still does that. There's a lot of people who still dual video audio. And so called podcast. I mean the way I see it is that the tension has always been between people who see podcasting blogging and people who see the Pakistanis the future radio and attention any many times. And I think we're in. We're in a place where that no longer matters because the ultimate consumer will lead us. Where do you WANNA
Labeling Podcasters: Independent vs. Corporate
"I never liked the term protesters which you may have heard describing those top podcasters that are from the major companies and corporations like NPR. And the different radio stations. The reason I like that term is because it seemed demeaning to the indy podcasters. It made it sound like independent. Podcasters could not be professionals at what they do. And I think that's not the case in the previous episode I talked about hobbyist versus professional as labels for podcasters and independent versus corporate. Had nothing whatsoever to do with the professional level independence can still be professional in their podcasting. So I prefer to use this label. Corporate podcasters to describe the podcast that come from the major corporations the major broadcast studios even many of these celebrities who have some kind of sort of corporation behind them or a corporate style in their podcasting. I would describe those as corporate podcasters so before I get into how these two labels independent and corporate podcasters are different. How are they the same or similar independent podcasters and corporate podcasters? Share the same similarities. I shared in my previous episode about hobbyist versus professional podcasters. You can go back to listen to that episode for more details. But here's that list for convenience. Both can have excellence. Both can have passion both can have audiences of any size and both can profit. Pr Fit Popularity Relationships Opportunities Fund income. Intangibles I think how these things apply can be a bit different between independent and corporate podcasters. But I think they do still pretty much apply to both labels of podcasters. So what sets these two types of podcasters apart. I what are Indy podcasters? And you'll hear me used the term independent and Indie interchangeably throughout this episode and in all kinds of other contexts number. One indie podcasters make their own decisions. I think this is the most important most different point of everything else. This is really what it comes down to. That separates the indies from the corporates. You could say the buck stops here for an indie pop caster. They make their own decisions. Big and small they might involve their co hosts their community or other collaborators like an editor or a designer but really everything about their podcast. Ease their own to choose. They're not subject to overlords of any sort they don't have to answer to corporate sponsors yes? There is some accountability to sponsors if an Indie podcast house a sponsor but that doesn't control what their content can be about. They can make their own decisions number. Two Indy podcasters are agile in the web design world for awhile. It seemed like the new buzzword was agile development and it implies that things can be changed very quickly and rapidly and that does apply for podcasters to having that agility because indy podcasters can on a whim change their technology. They could launch a donation system or a membership site. They could create a new product. They could redesign their branding and much more. There's no approval process in usually the only delays for an indie. Podcast are in how much time it takes to implement any kind of changer decision. Or how long it takes for that delivery truck to arrive with that new piece of gear number three. Indy podcasters made the podcasting industry. Don't let anyone mislead you hear NPR. Hollywood major broadcast studios did not invent podcasting. Yes they did help. In other areas of podcasting for sure and I'll get into that later but podcasting was actually invented by independent people mainly Dave winer who created rss and then implemented the technology to make podcasting passable with RSS and those implementation suggestions came from Adam. Curry who co created podcasting. The whole foundations of podcasting are very independent. They're very pirate radio. It was even called that for a little while and in some contexts and even still today many people look at it as pirate radio that you can do your own thing as pirates ever sounded like that number four. Indie podcasters are resourceful. Independent podcasters are used to working with what they have very limited resources there well acquainted with recording in a closet or under blanket. And even when I first started my podcast I was using a super cheap microphone and pantyhose for a pop filter acquiring that pantyhose was very awkward especially since I was a bachelor at that time. The story for a different day. But Indy podcasters are used to hacking things together to meet their needs. They're very resourceful sometimes. That's because of dictation with their budget or what they're willing to do or interested in doing. I see some indy podcasters. Who will do things simply because they want to do it themselves. It's very diy in the indie realm. Other podcasters might purchase something instead of building it themselves but I think that most indie podcasters are very resourceful. Number five. Indy podcasters are the majority of the nearly one point. One million podcasts. In Apple podcasts. At this time I estimate there are only a couple or few thousand podcast. Certainly under one percent of the total that are hosted by corporate podcasters. The rest of the PODCASTS. Are The indies? It's the podcast by the mom recording when her kids are napping by the dad who records maybe during his lunch break at work. It's from the teenager in their school classroom. It's from these people with these amazing ideas and the passion to share those ideas world. Those are the majority of podcasts out. There one percent of one million is ten thousand. I really don't think they're more than ten thousand corporate podcasts out. There certainly not active anymore when you look at the space that almost fifty percent of the podcast have published an episode in the last ninety days. And that's gone up significantly. Because of a bunch of new podcast launches still the independent podcasters dominate. The industry. They are the majority most likely listening right. Now are an indie pop. Castor you are in the majority of podcasters number six. Indy podcasters reach the niches. There's almost no niche too small for the British and the Audience Niche. You can find podcast on almost anything and usually hosted by people passionate about and highly experienced in those topics. Even if that's a small topic there can be podcasts. Out there in these are things that the corporate podcasters won't even touch. Because it's too niche but indy podcasters. Do reach those niches number. Seven Indy podcasters want and deserve to be involved in the podcasting industry. I don't mean simply being in the podcasting industry by having a podcast by being involved having a voice for the directions. The podcasting industry goes. This is one of the reasons why I have big hopes for the new podcast academy as long as they do represent the majority of podcasters the independent voices in the podcast academy and why I would encourage you to look at being involved in that joining. That pain. Your membership dues to be part of the podcast academy so that you can be involved in podcasting industry

"Decisions for your podcast today and I don't to spend too much time in the past but I wanNA give you some perspective before we get into the meat of how you're going to grow your shows in the Stratagem GonNa give you that. I believe is going to make a success on now. Here's one thing that you always remember. There is no rules in podcasting. He do it your way. Tad's GonNa give you some advice. You take what you want. Take the nuggets. Turn the rest out. That's important part of this. There is no perfect way to podcast lot's of formulas lots of masterminds this. Todd's thought process so back in two thousand four this all we had folks we had ipods. That's it. We had a couple of little mini players. Who maybe load eight nine. Ten shows episodes actually onto them. Had to do that manually. In the early days of podcasting really this was it but man. It was such an incredible time. He was really an evolution in media. And there's a few things it went along with it. These two fellows Dave Winer Adam. Curry the podfather podcasting. Adam was one that made connect the dots figured out enclosure in an RSS feed could be scripted to be unloaded onto a media device. Dave Winer was the one that was came up but they are suspect without these fellas. None of us would be here today and I always pay homage to them and most of my presentations. Because I don't think we should forget the work that they've done in actually what Adam continues to do with his podcast has today called the daily Source Code. He made his saying earlier. Day was sixteen million dollars worth of airplane strapped to my ass in the next generation radio content my ears. I'd like to think I'm flying. Into the and boy. Those words a he stayed in has been quoted so many times over the years as the absolute truth because we had no idea where this medium would go when it kicked off in two thousand and four and I just want to talk about podcasting early days for just a second again to give you perspective before we get into the meat of this. We all are basically screw. The man there was no distribution. You couldn't be heard unless you had a website. Google was really not even really even a blip on anybody's radar. Hardly there was no facebook and that kind of go into a little more here but there was no distribution. You had to. You had to sign your life away to get distribution of any content and we were all fiercely independent and I think that has held through even today which is important part of the podcasting ecosphere and how we are kind of like rebels. Were with a cause and again there was no social media. Facebook started to come on. The scene owes five zero six. I created my facebook account. I think in early. Oh seven definitely no twitter. There was no podcast hosting verticals. No one there is no Lipson pod. Being there was you know that didn't exist until later and we were all really kind of making it up on our own. There was no apple podcast. July will five you know and luckily apple was really smart. Bring podcasting into their ecosphere. It really was an inflection point that many of his talked about the happening July five without them making this we may not have survived as a space. F- Apple had not done what they did in. Oh five and I always give apple a lot of credit people like to talk bad about apple from time to time but we should not forget that. I don't think we'd be here if they had an added us to what was then. I tunes back in. Oh five and again. A website was all we had. That was it that was it. We had no other way to promote shows. And I'm going to get a little tough here in this conversation. All of us are watching this and want to a little bit of a reality moment just like everyone else. When I started my podcast I was nobody. I was in the navy. I didn't have any media experience. I had a blog as a horrible blogger. Horrible horrible and I really had no meat experience whatsoever so I started at ground. Zero just like everyone else and I'll be honest. We made shit up as we went. We really did. We had no idea. Thrown spitballs off the walls and hope they stuck and in those early days. We figured out the mistakes and the things that didn't work to be able to pass on to you today many of the masterminds and th I often hear hear someone doing a presentation and here my quote comeback. Through someone's voice have said some now. Maybe they didn't get it for me but maybe it made that three four five steps to get to them and it stuck because really a lot of stuff that you here today was really Kinda born and bred in those early days of podcasting. Now I'm not so ignorant to think that we can't learn new things. I try to do that every day but again the lessons learned back in those days. I going to help you out and I always like to remind people the great equalizer this right here is the RSS feed and that is what keeps us on the air. Rss IS OUR RADIO TOWER WITHOUT IT. We don't exist and that's really really critical here in this in this day and age when we see that people are trying to put stuff on facebook or on twitter or different places in their off all of a sudden finding out community guidelines is basically a rule. That apple says. We're only GonNa let you put on our site what we say you can put on there if you fall outside of the you know outside of the norm so we're going to take it down with the RSS. The beauty is we get instant global distribution and cast. A reality in mortality is open. Rss Feed because we cannot be taken off the air. And I think this is really the important part here that we have to remember podcasters. We cannot be taken off the air. You might be D- platform you may say something that becomes a situation where people all of a sudden they're targeting your content but you cannot be taken off the air if you own in control your rss feed that radio transmitter. And there's no gatekeepers I don't have to ask anyone anyone permission to post my show. I still have to watch what I say. I just can't say anything you know we have to follow. You can slander someone and be in trouble and go to go to court over that. But we've had truly freedom of speech and be able to say what we want but the main thing is someone can't stop us there are few modern gatekeepers and I'm not going to go into that in this presentation but I loved the ability of our assess for someone that I don't have to ask permission getting back to the task hand when I hear podcasters say it's too hard to build my show. I can't build an audience. I started a podcast as nobody. I started my podcast as a blogger. That really I sucked as a blogger. Started a podcast because I wanted to put my voice out there and be heard and had no social media. I didn't have any of these tools so we looked everywhere for opportunities to get exposure to build your name and what I want to talk about again is no facebook. There's twitter there's no instagram. There was no. There's a smelling nerves. No podcast training but today we do have all this. We have all the facebook twitter instagram. We've got live events. We got podcast training. We've got coaches and production apple. Podcast Google Potier spotify Pandora. Iheart deesor smart speakers tune in mobile phones hundred and fifty plus devices. Listen enabling consume podcasts. And there's more coming in which I can't talk about etc etcetera etcetera. We have massive distribution today massive distribution. We started I had my website that was it and yet and yet a year into podcasting. I found a sponsor I build an audience. Some will say well todd. There wasn't very many podcasters San well. In the first few months there wasn't a lot of podcasters and then a lot of great podcasters joined the space and piled on by the thousands and of course today. It's it's a whole different situation. But I've always said sustained superior. Content produced on a consistent. Basis is only twenty five percent of what you need to be successful. Let me say that again. Sustained superior content produced on a consistent basis. Only twenty five percent of what you need to succeed creating. Your podcast alone is not enough so I guess some things. I want you to think about here. Are you building your brand? We say well todd. I'm doing a show.

"It was that I had made my choice, and I was one of the advantages all apps head was this kind of common frame of reference, and then that app did not share it. And it was frustrating to use the plus minus thing versus disclosure triangles. Is maybe one of the great examples because I'm I'm I am and always have been a hundred and one hundred percent convinced that the disclosure triangle visual metaphor is better. It's it is both more attractive and more intuitive. It looks closed when it's closed. It looks open when it's open. It goes down it the the switching from pointing to the side for close to pointing down to be open creates the opportunity for an animation affords that makes perfect sense. You could see the triangle flipping in a rotating thing. And maybe the, you know in later years is animation got more prevalent in the OS. You could see the content. It's of the folder or whatever go down the plus minus thing I plus and minus make no sense in that context to me, and they they used to draw the little dotting line. It just led to this crazy visual thing where they'd have all these lines all over the place that weren't necessary. Right. All you need or the triangles and indentation. Right. And you know, you it it would transfer to things like. Outline ours. Right. So you'd have you know, like one Dave winer's outline from the early nineties late eighties. Would of course, use disclosure triangles to hide and show hierarchy of the outline which is something. Maybe it's like an essay or or research paper, you're researching and the way that you would close disclosed the hierarchy of that worked exactly the same as in the finder when you were dealing with files. No, right. Outlander works like that to the day, right? One of the words I like for is Matic and idiom attic usually referred to like grammar in that one of the ways that you can kind of tell sometimes when somebody speaks your native language as a second language, isn't that the wrong per se is that they say things that nobody who's spoke it natively, whatever put together, they're unfamiliar with certain idioms. And you I I sometimes I wonder how. How I ever got semi decent grades in English going through school in grammar classes because I never knew the rules. I mean, I could I could I parts of speech. I could get an once we got past that it was like forget it. I have no idea what the hell you're talking about. I just do it by ear. I've always just written and read by ear. And you know, making good MAC software has always been like that. They're just idioms that you use. And when you violate them, it just seems bizarre..

"Now, there's like a ton of them. But this was the original everyone was we started gaining so much momentum people. I mean, people were having hundreds of thousands. We have millions of downloads things like that. So he wanted to capitalize on it. Some people were feeling desperate. Like, we have all this following. We don't know how to make money. I think he took advantage of that. Because we were all newbies in this business in business in general advantage in the bad way. We never signed with them. But we got our hands on the contract that people were assigning. It was confused this for people that would read this contract. And all right. So he's going to have this much control over my show. If I ever leave him, I don't get my old shows. I don't even get I'm not exaggerating to keep the name of the show. And they said, I doubt he means that you know, what I mean? It's like Pete the way people vote for. Titians? Well, I doubt they're gonna kit in a fucking page. That's ridiculous. We sell upset about this. Because it was new free media. It was we are fucking making this up, and you're acting like you're going to save the world like this particular word world that we're already making up how to make money we're already trying to push forward. And we're trying to like share information with each other, and you're pretending to hoard the info. So that people sign up to you and you own their art go fucking fuck yourself. You went anti the fucking podcast movement light is it was about to the first the first burst. There's been like a couple at the first burst. You you had little ducklings going like, where's our food? We're not sure what to do. We don't know how to keep up with this. But something's happening here. And you said, I'll do it. I'll fuck you right in the ass with no lube. I understand that. He is. I don't know. What though he has something to do with the technology. I know that but. He's one of these guys that goes back in the past goes on Wicky and deletes people's names on my God. Yeah. Well, if anybody is confused as the weather artistic -nology, you can look up Dave winer. He's the guy who did write create it and gave it to the world for free and everything like that. And that's the thing he was taking a lot of credit, and that's why when his name gets brought up as the podfather, which he named himself. Right. He cited that he was the pod self-proclaimed bitch. And so and and just pretending like, he's one of the good guys. Like, he's doing favors that was the worst. It's not like, I'm a business person. I could like I have all these connections. And they were he was getting money poured at him from what I understand because venture capitalists are now getting involved because they saw the following podcasts. We're having and people legit got. I remember like the Lipson guys got a bunch of money people were getting a bunch of money because podcasting was being invested in. But it was that first boom. So stupid money was being spent and nothing was being done because. You're talking to a bunch of children, and you're talking to a bunch of predators on those children.

"And so there was multimedia stuff on the web. But there was no experience. It didn't matter what the MP three was just coming along. We had you know, like the Rio and stupid MP three players that were really quite antiquated compared to what you see today. So you know, broadcasting or streaming or anything like that it just wasn't possible. There was no way you could do what there were no services at the time. I don't think real audio had actually come out yet at that point. Maybe it had nine hundred ninety though just as an aside. I did broadcast the mega music dance experience from the yard burst Tra which was a huge dance party on the m bone. If you remember that remember the emblem? Yeah. Walked away walked away from my story. I need you for color. Come back. Okay. Okay. Okay. I remember the Embo. And I remember a bunch of remember what was that crazy network that guy did that one character the a bunch of crazy stuff that was going on during this era? The the emblem was amazing. It only worked could only really see if you are to university, but it was multifaceted. And so it was the exact opposite of a problem that we have which is the more people who watch our listened the more with it it eats. And this was kind of a chained multicolored. They've anyway, I digress. At the same time Napster came out. And we'll audio was initial releases April ninety five before that, even but, but you know, I remember in coding took forever. If there was no experience, so then Napster happened. And I remember opening my Napster client, and what was so mind blowing about this is you could see, oh, this is some guys computer. And you could you know, if you do we're searching for for. Song it might show up and you could explore his his computer, and you could start up these downloads. And you know, you might have ten twelve downloads go, and it would take a long time because you know, no bandwith, but it was always on the phone line wasn't tied up. And I was like, oh, this is what if what if I made the experience by changing the thinking? In other words, your computers on the whole time. There's something you want you want it when it's new let's say a new song. That's how was thinking at the time. And but you your computer had initiated download, but didn't tell you it was it was vailable until it actually had downloaded onto the computer would pop up a message and say, hey, I got something new you click on it it plays immediately. Great great experience. So really unattended your computer should be doing this in the background. And I wrote a an essay about a call the last yard. He could probably find it now at the same time. So I had this in my head. I'm like broadcasting how do I broadcast? How do we use? How come I do this? And I knew that had to be away. Just like the news broadcast. You have no idea how long it takes people to put the news together and make that hourlong show this pre produced packages, but when it's time all of that just flows out to you. So it's kind of the same idea of have everything happened out of sight of the user and at the time, Dave winer had just become pretty well known with RSS, and he was doing his blogging software, and you re to winer's scripting dot com. And I went to New York because I had I felt like I could somehow work with him to use RSS. I wasn't quite sure. Really? And we met in a hotel room. I I don't remember why he was there.

So I was looking for something to do in this. This job came up. We're not a job, but is basically the. It can have a job that we, we had airplanes we are modifying in Waco, Texas, and and that looked like an opportunity for me to get out from underneath the watchful eye. I could do this and still be in recovery. It could still be in the doctor said, I could you know, long as they didn't walk more than forty five minutes and get all these lifting, and I didn't have to do any of this. I was doing contract enforcement, so desk work working with the people on the floor, you know, making sure stock done, right. So it was perfect. So off I went to to wake on, I'm be honest with you. I don't remember exactly when I went to to Waco, but I know there was a pivotal a moment in early October. Any of you that had been in Texas even in October? Know that it's, it's teaming.
