Podwalker takes a tumble



Just went out to get some lunch, walking through Stratford High St in East London, IT conversations on the player – Marc Canter talking about ourmedia.org and the internet archive – wow this is coo… BAMMM, strange floating sensation followed by face and knees scraping along pavement and then small birds twittering around my head.

My first reaction? Oh no here comes someone looking very concerned who wants to look after me – real playground stuff, “No, I’m alright, no really, thank you very much ” [limps off manfully, little tear on cheek]

Turns out I put one foot into a loop of discarded plastic tape (the stuff that holds boxes of photocopier paper together) and either put the other foot in it too or stepped on it with the other foot thus upending myself.

Pictures later – ie after the bleeding slows, but before my pride gets re-inflated. [update – no chance of ego reflation – kids way too amused]

Now if I’d been recording instead of listening….

This is a round-up of some of the cool things that have landed in my mailbox so far this week:

BicycleMark – the Amsterdam podwalker and communique-er extraordinaire, let me know that my feedburner feed didn’t have enclosures. So now it does.

Christian d’Hoste sent me his flickr-seeing tour of Florida post hurricane and his regular podcast, for which we must find a home.

Effern McSchmeefern (sp? mmmmm… may not be his real name) from The Vision Thing (somewhere deep in the heart of Texas I think) asked if he could use the podcasting is easy clip I did this week and in the process introduced me to his great business podcast – Sound of Vision (subscribe) I like it a lot.

and finally Neal Foley on Rock Island, WA has set up Pod chef blog and podcast where he is cooking with gas, baby – this week a mouthwatering corned beef hash with cabbage in a mustard sauce. Neal’s a professional chef, taking the format that I used for my curry-cast but putting his own inimitable stamp on it. He’s starting this on a real shoestring budget and because he’s way out off the coast of Washington state he’s doing it all over a 56k dial-up connection – now that’s commitment to podcasting folks! If you enjoy what you hear and want to support him in doing more I’m sure that Neal won’t mind though if you throw some tips in his paypal tipjar. And of course, if you’re anywhere in the Pacific North-West region and you need someone a bit different to cater for a big do – then what better than a podcasting chef!

Phew – now give me more, people, bring it on, I can take it!!
