Again with the offers.

Well, when Homer gets on, maybe you'll be more interested. (He can't sound worse than I do. :-)

Feedback come first, so...

I'm emaling back and forth with someone who's got an interesting and refreshing point of view on therapies and might have something to say to all of us. But only "might".

Hey! I can only ask. I can't force or coerce somebody into it.

He feels that he's doing his bit where he is and that's enough for him.

And it should be enough for me too.

Feed forward come next, so...

I'm going to go travel for my day job. My wife's already got her passport and her visa, I'm still waiting for my paperwork to happen, but happen it will.

In preparation for this momentous event, (In-di-ah :-) I'm buying a new laptop, but more on that later.:-)

There was an MS event in Manhattan.

Guess who missed it partially because of all the screw ups caused when the powers that be decided to screw with the seasonal time changes?

I had a mini-Y2K right in my own home. Sprint Cell phones are still showing 11:00 but its really 12:00.

Besides, I'm not really into commuting for an hour of more to arrive late, dig into a rubber chicken sandwich for lunch, and then waste an afternoon listening to a whole bunch of bafflegab.

Feed Me! come third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Main topic: Geeky goodness

In preparation for my trip to India I bought a 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 17" Apple MacBookPro with 1680 x 1050 pixel on screen, 2 GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive with ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics with 256MB SDRAM.

I also bought a 1 TB (terabyte) LaCie Big Disk Extreme with Triple Interface. (I don't think I have to worry about storage for a good long while. [Now backing up is going to be a pain in the butt.])

Since I'm taking a laptop, a digital camera and I'll have internet access through my employer, I'll be able to record my shows on the road.

Don't expect much conversation though, I'll be busy scaring the heck out of myself and my employer because I'll be learning a new discipline while serving my own agenda, to drag them into the future with something I developed in 1984, wrote about in 1990, and got independent confirmation that it worked when somebody actually used it and wrote about it in 1994.

Google "Rovira Diagrams" if you want to know more about it.

Main topic, part "deux"

I would love to be doing shows about the drugs and therapies and interviews with the movers and shakers in MS research and all of that stuff, but that wouldn't be me.

I like indie music, the "PMN (Podsafe Music Network)", "Garage Band and a few other music distribution services. I like the tunes and I like the bands. While they are using me to get their music out there, I am using them to provide some entertainment on a platform for MSers, by MSers, to give us tunes and visibility that is just impossible in a mass media world.

I wish that this venture was making money so that I could hire a reader with a good voice, (my rules about it having to be somebody with MS might even be relaxed since s/he would in effect be reading my words,) and focus on the writing and the business of media in the internet age, spreading MSBPodcast and giving a voice to MSers in all the major language groups.

Besides, I know I sound like crap. (But on the plus side, the is no standard "Radio DJ voice" in podcasting. ["Hey! This wonderful W-SUX, in some ill-defined tri-state area bringing you whatever's next in the rotation, decided weeks ago by some committee of accountants, in some other town, far away, like in another time zone on another hemisphere: 'Clear Channel Communications. Listen, or else.'"] :-)

Like "Dirty Harry" said, just before blowing up a car with a bad boss in it, "A man's got to know his own limitations," and I am acutely aware of mine.
