I'm happy to say that Doc and I have finally got the first episode of The Doc Report published with a great interview with Nico Westerdale! (Post at Cynic.me - has links to several of Nico's sites.)

In case you don't know, Nico Westerdale is the guy behind Bits du Jour, which I'm pretty sure most people here know about. (They have fantastic discounts on lots of software, but only for 1 day.)

In the interview we Doc and I talk with Nico primarily about software marketing. There are some really bizarre surprises in there, but I'm not going to post any spoilers. Wink Suffice it to say, I'm confident that you'll be both entertained and surprised. smiley

Some other fun stuff in the podcasts includes:

  • "The Techie Treasure Chest" - Some recommendations
  • "Dysfunctional Fractoids" - A trivia question where you can win a free software license
  • "Helpful How-tos" - Self explanatory Wink

The show is safe for work. Wink

Enjoy~! Grin

Hi DC'ers!

Long time, no Doc!  Wink

Please do check out the show and let us know what you think!

We've aimed to produce a high-quality podcast that's useful for *any* developer.

If you have any suggestions of topics you'd like to "see" (okay, "hear") covered, let us know.

Be well! smiley

Sorry for the late review. Just downloaded and listened to it and I like it. smiley

Few suggestions -

1) PDF transcript please (ya know speed of my USB data card ryan  cheesy)
2) Interviews of developers from codecanyon (envato) or other freeware/shareware authors
3) GTD stuff (interviews or resources?) tongue
4) Audio goes up and down, that's the only problem. So please fix that.

Keep up with the podcast  Thmbsup

Ah! Good to hear that you liked it! We've got a fantastic show coming up next that you won't want to miss!

RE:

#1 - Remember that thread I started about speech to text? That was one of the reasons... Sad

Neither Doc nor I have time to do full transcriptions right now. So... Let's hope for some wild success for it, and maybe we can change that. smiley

#2 - Thanks for the suggestions! I'll make sure to talk to Doc and we'll look into it.

#3 - Hmmm... I really haven't read about GTD (only GDT Wink ), so I'll need to think about it and talk to Doc.

#4 - We were rushing to finish the show, and I probably should have spent more time in post-production fixing levels. The next one is much better though. I spent a good amount of time on cleaning, levels, and all that.

Anyways, no spoilers for the next show, but are interviewing a rock star. Wink

Thanks for listening and for providing feedback!  Thmbsup

#1) Working on a solution for transcriptions. Really important to have content like this as accessible as possible! Don't want it "locked up" in audio-only. 

#2) Definitely! I'll reach out to Envato. And we'll be interviewing freeware/shareware/open source authors too. If you have anyone/someone in mind and want to/can intro us, please shoot over an email to  loopback [At] thedocreport [D0TTT] com.

#3) Great topic to cover! Useful for everyone! Now who to interview... There's already a lot of great GTD talks/presentations/interviews out there. Hmmm... (brain working). We can definitely cover some resources in "Helpful How-tos" and/or "Techies Treasure Chest".

#4) It's always just my voice isn't it? tongue Maybe, I'm *too* animated for audio... Haha. It'll get better! smiley

Thanks again and stay tuned!

Ahhhh, finally I got around to listening to this! (Still not got around to #2 yet, been listening to 'Symphony of Science - the Quantum World!' on repeat half the night lol)

Nothing to really add to the conversation as such, will comment more after listening to #2 xD

Anyhow, It was a bloody good listen and I highly recommend it to my fellow DC members!

Whoa! Totally missed this... heard most of the intv. right now but I'm really high and would like to do it justice. I'll definitely give it a second (sober) listen. Renegade, you're the resident celeb, I totally blame you for missing this when it was posted (not pimping your fame in the post title and making it seem like just another intv.  cheesy )

Great work, guys!  Thmbsup Looking fwd to more... and P.S. - Renegade, if you don't go on a tangent during one of these and start ranting about Apple I WILL BE DISAPPOINT!!  Grin

Edit: Just read Stephen's post... there's already a part 2?? Fuck, I'm drunk!

That is awesome! I hope you love episode #2... and all that follow after that! We'll appreciate *any* feedback and thanks for listening! smiley

ROFL!!!! Thanks for listening! HAHA, we managed NOT to record Ryan's Apple rants. The show is SFW. But man... have we had some LIVELY off the record ones! Oh, and *ahem* maybe Ryan should "come clean" about a recent Appley event in his life (if he hasn't already). tongue *DOC RUNS AWAY*

Btw, we have a "rant" segment called "Open Commentary" but we haven't done one for a show yet. I'm still not sure it can be pulled off in a SFW way!

Ryan posted a thread for episode #2 over here: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=27814.0 btw.

Be well everyone and don't be scared to share the show! smiley

He has - apparently he's getting a divorce as a result.

Bwahahahahaa~! Grin Glad to see that I'm not the only one that posts drunk every once in a while~! Grin

(Though you didn't make an ass of yourself, and I know that I have a few times. tongue )

As for Apple rants... sigh... It's SFW, so all that would get edited out anyways. Sad

We'll see though. I think that I can control my otherwise foul mouth. (Spills chicken blood into pan, throws bones, does funny dance, starts chanting, eyes roll back into head...) tongue
