Neurotics Promo 2002 (video)

VIDEO PODCAST: Back in 2002 I put together a short (3 min 25 sec) promotional video for the "Fab Rock" cover band I play drums in, The Neurotics. I’ve now reformatted it to play in iTunes and on iPods, so you can use my first ever video podcast to witness the power, passion, hair, pants, glittery jackets—and the love. Oh, the love. Enjoy the video (19 MB MPEG-4 QuickTime download).. © 2002 The Neurotics. All rights reserved.

Get started with blogging (spoken word)

On February 11, 2006, I was part of a four-man panel (55 min MP3 file, about 13 MB) on getting started with blogging at the second annual Northern Voice conference. The other panelists were Matt Mullenweg, creator of WordPress; Arjun Singh, municipal politician in Kamloops, B.C.; and Roland Tanglao, super-uber-blogger and prolific user of mobile phones. There is also a wiki transcript. Licensed for you to share and reuse, as long as you give us credit.

Build your website in 15 minutes or less (spoken word)

Can you build a website in 15 minutes or less? Yes! In fact, during my February 2006 talk (14 MB MP3 file, about 1 hr 23 min) to the Editors' Association of Canada, I did it three times with three different tools. To fill up the time, I also discussed blogs, and how domain servers are like phone books, and why Search Engine Optimization isn’t too useful, and why it’s better to hack yourself out a blog than to try to get your website perfect and never actually update it.

Camp Walk

"Camp Walk" is a 2.5 MP3 file, and a short little tune used by Roland Tanglao as the soundtrack to a brief movie assembled from pictures taken during Moose Camp at Northern Voice 2006. I custom composed and recorded “Camp Walk” for the occasion. It is a hard-rockin', vaguely White Stripes-y instrumental that's a minute and a half long.
