Gnomedex Seattle Library partyLast year I had a great time when my work sent me to the Gnomedex conference in Seattle in June, where I heard my first real podcast—Adam Curry, doing his 200th episode of the Daily Source Code, live on stage in front of me (you can hear the MP3).

(In podcasting terms, that's sort of like my first movie-going experience, which was seeing Star Wars. Unlike Luke and Chewbacca, though, my first live-in-person podcast didn't impress me at the time.)

Many Apple Laptops (and a Few Others) at GnomedexAnyway, a lot has happened in the 9 months since then. I started my own podcast, and put my music on Adam's Podsafe Music Network, where it has been downloaded and used by hundreds (yes, hundreds) of other podcasters for background tunes, theme songs, promos, and so on.

Most recently, my wife started her own podcast. And now you know what? She's coming to Gnomedex 2006 with me. What kind of geek fantasy is that—having your wife go from tolerating your techie obsessions to having the same ones, and coming to the next Nerd Woodstock with you? It's damn cool, that's what it is.

Faces of GnomedexP.S. In her next episode, my wife and her co-host KA interview Ponzi, who of course co-organizes with her fiancé Chris—and on that episode, coming Wednesday April 5, you'll hear some exclusive fun Gnomedex news.

So go subscribe so you get it when it's ready on the podcast, why don't you?
