msb-0241 Relating and Connecting


Feedback comes first, so...

Welcome back "Jaime". [ ]

I'm glad to count you amongst my audience of podcatchers out there.


This is the last 'cast of 2007 (I'm taking New Year's Eve off,) and its an ending of sorts, of types, of a class for me.

I am now engaged in making a success of this podcast and levering open the marketing minds of the world to the possibilities of connecting one to one the people who are looking for a market and the people in that market.

I am stopping wasting my skills and my thirty year long efforts at trying to get others in my old profession, IT, to even see what they are looking at.

Maybe I'll have more luck with the companies that are doing things for MSers.

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

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

This just in, and I agree with [name withheld].

If you wanna learn how the learn how the record bizness works (as opposed to the music business) you have "got" to check out "Before the Music Dies" [ ].

From the web site:
"Narrated by Academy Award® Winner Forest Whitaker, BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES is an unsettling and inspiring look at today’s popular music industry featuring interviews and performances by Erykah Badu, Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, Branford Marsalis, ?uestlove and a wide variety of others. The documentary film has built a passionate following as “the most important film a music fan will ever see” (XM Radio) by providing “a balanced overview of the state of the rock scene of America” (The Wall Street Journal) and adding “passion to the eternal debate about the industry” (The New York Times).

Last year, BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES filmmakers Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen walked away from traditional Hollywood distribution to instead pursue a large-scale grassroots release with B-Side Entertainment. Since its release in November 2006, the film has screened over 200 times in over 130 North American markets with hundreds of additional events anticipated worldwide during 2007. Use this site to learn more about the film, where you can see it, ways you can own it, and - most importantly - how you can get involved in sharing it with others.
They have a page where you can buy the documentary.

Its was a bit of a struggle but I downloaded it and have watched it

Its really worth it.

Right on and thanks [name withheld].

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"

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...

Its a time for ending old things and starting new things.

I am referring to my old profession, toiling in the fields of IT, and my new profession, playing at, with and for podcasting.

---- "connecting" by: "MAXFIELD"


Part of trowing over the past is to get it out of my sight.

Let me get this out of the way:
"The power of computing is being choked off by the failure of its practitioners on the software end to recognize what the universe is truly comprised of: "Objects" answering a few basic questions ("who, what, where, when, why" ) and "Relationships" and instantiated by "Connections".

The limitation of object oriented computing, and the failure to take advantage of the multiple threading available in high power computing hardware, is due to the failure of imagination which repeatedly embeds objects inside of other objects when they should be dealing with the externalized concepts and implementation of "Relationships" between simple objects and "Connections" between instances of the simple objects.

Computing will remain a failure of accelerating encumbrance, hitting the metaphorical wall, until its practitioners successfully answer this question:

"What is a wall?"


Its over.

I'm done.

If they ever wake up, they can go suck an egg and leave me the fuck alone.

I've left enough clues along the way."
Now, let me get on to "Podcasting".

There are several reasons why it does and will continue work, both as a concept, and in reality.

Its uses the same thing that computing "in the cloud" uses: "The Internet".

This legacy from the "Military Industrial Complex" of "Eisenhower"'s era is having unforeseen consequences; bushels and pecks of unforeseen consequences.

By threading through a tortuous path, we arrive at the internet in its present shape, its present topology: unknown in dimensions but pervasive in its influence.

It connects things, like us MSers, and unites us in our purposes, those myriad disparate things that join us in our needs, those needs that we all share.

---- "Steel Away - Spiritually Connected" by: "Wade Austin"


Its an time for ending old things and starting new things.

I'm no longer looking back. Not even wistfully. I heard the door slam.

I am breaking with the past, making a shift and cleaving from the shackles of past expectations and those ties that bound, and gagged, me.

"Hello podcasting!"

I'd really rather make a success of "it" than fail at IT, (sorry but its a pun that only works when written down, and only in English too, [which IT thinks it knows, and, in stark reality, is failing to see what is glaringly obvious.])

Ahh... Wait 'till next year. :-)

From my POV ... the wall is management and bugets.

from my POV the wall is how software is conceived.

The development budgets are overblown because there is no reuse possible. (I heard that data conversion costs are going to hit in the billions in the coming year.)

The maintenance budgets are likewise way too big. (The maintenance phase of a project can make up to 90% of the total. [Why else do you think they just love to start new projects? {They keep reinventing the same wheel with the same tools using the same methodology(1) in order to "tweak a design with out ever addressing why it really sucks}])

If they could model a wall, they would see what they're missing.

Well, screw 'em all. I'm well rid of the whole friggin' mess and I'm moving on. (Aaaaah.... It feels so good to be saying that. :-)

1) Q: What do you call somebody who keep watching the same movie and expecting it to end differently "this time".

A: A software project manager.
