Podcast: @jonhickman asked me about social capital

Jon Hickman is writing an article on the crowdsourced journalism site, Contributoria on whether or not you can live on social capital.   He kindly thought that my experiences wandering around the United States of America might provide some insight, so we had a chat.   Even if you’ve heard me talk about it before, you might find it interesting to hear it from this perspective.  I’ll certainly be fascinated to compare this conversation with how Jon’s article turns out.

It coincides nicely with the fact that I finally got round to releasing Version 0.1 of the Please Look After This Englishman e-book – this one contains all the blog posts before, during and after the trip. I intend to refine and develop this product (hence the Version 0.1 tag) so if you do download it, I’d love to hear your ideas for other ways to present the story or particular parts that you’d like to hear more about.

Update: The e-book is now also available on Amazon if that makes it easier for you.  Although it costs you more plus Big A  take a greater percentage and take longer to pay me than Gumroad.  Of course, it’s not about the money! 🙂

Podcast: Hello Dave! with @davebriggs

We recorded this early last week, but I’ve been holding it back because I didn’t have time to listen to it in order to come up with the usually obsessively and irrelevantly detailed show-notes.  But that’s stupid.   So for this episode, if there’s anything in there that you want to know more about and but can’t Google, leave a comment and I’ll see if I can explain.

The gist of it all is this: Lloyd’s just been to the osteopath and so is feeling a bit groggy.  Fans of the chronic self-deprecating chunter about tech(ish), social(ish), community(ish) matters are unlikely to be disappointed.
