The interview was too long to include in the program, but if you’re interested in issues surrounding DRM, net neutrality or wiretapping, check it out below.

  1. really liking your audioblog in america thing.

    1 thing i didn’t like:

    I thought some of your big words were unnecessary and a little showy. Like, I could have said ‘ostentatious’ there instead of showy. But i didn’t. Cuz showy works just fine and uses less effort to write and understand.

    all the things I did like:

    The editing of all those little ‘mmmm’ and ‘awwwm’ noises is excellent.

    Imaginative descriptions

    Appropriate mix of funny and seriousness.

    Nice music linking it all together. and tres professional editing stack!

    Nice mix between conversational spontaneous tone and formal writing tone. Love that story about Dave the ageing jewish hippy guy.

  2. Note that a disproportionate number of visitors are from UK. Not surprising when you consider that our English friends already live in an Orwellian environment.
