msb-0206 Ever feel small and insignificant?

msb-0206 Ever feel small and insignificant?


Feedback comes first, so...

Well, I am now unemployed, as opposed to being underemployed. Now begins the work of finding another job. (Sigh...)

There isn't any feedback, but I did find a funny bit about the sheer size of the universe from "Monty Python" on "YouTube."

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

Drop me an email: charles at

And I would apreciate if someone could write a review of this podcast on iTunes [ ] You can just select the link and, eventually, scroll down the iTunes page to "Customer Reviews"

---- "Communicate" by: "Chris Rusu"

Feed Me comes 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...

Ever feel small and insignificant? I have on several occasions but the most memorable one (there are several,) is one tipsy Christmas evening in Kinburn, which is a distant suburb west of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, at my ex-brother-in-law's house, lying on his front lawn on that cold, crisp winter's night, staring at the Milky Way, and being able to see thousands of stars.

---- "Sin Communicatum" by: "Inner Flux"


That feeling of my own insignificance came from seeing the sheer scale of the universe and thing of my place and role within it.

The following day, I returned back to Ottawa and the high-tech world with its much smaller horizons, its well-lit bustle and its rooms with their ceilings eight or twelve feet above my head.

I have since gone on both sides of the Atlantic doing the work of a computer programmer, a software product manager, an object-oriented software design and development "guru" and I gathered some praise and an article, or 20, one wife, after another, (both of whom became friends, [so you know I don 't get away with anything around the house, {whatever one doesn't remember, the other one does ... (and both bring instances up to me if I ever step put of line... :-)}])

I had roles to play in that world; but I never forgot the sky that night.

Now I am finishing another role. I have lost my job, meaning I have no further source of income. (It was inevitable, I suppose. In fact, I am quite surprised and glad that it even lasted as long as it did.)

But now I am entirely free to dedicate myself entirely to this podcast, and possibly others.

Lying there in the snow, looking up at a night sky that was full of stars, definitely made me feel small and insignificant; but, try as I might, it something I can only wish for here in light polluted Jersey City.

Now, I can get on with the work of making this podcasting career pay.

The "best" jobs are the ones that are fun and that you can dedicate yourself to, heart and soul.

So does anyone know Corporate Communications Officers who want to use podcasting to communicate their corporate message?

I'm in the market for a job and I happen to have 206 episodes of doing fully fleshed podcasts under my belt. (Its not a speaking job. Its a job helping "them" speak. :-)

Under the principle of it never rains but it pours, I have just fund out that my mother is dying of kidney cancer.

Man things are depressed around the Rovira household today. My mother is taking it better that I am. My sister is faced with what we all knew was inevitable but she's still a bit shaken.
