I had a fantastic time at PodcampAZ on Saturday. Good people, good discussion, and a good deal more activity in this town than I had ever imagined. I've made quite a few new contacts that I'm really looking forward to getting to know better.
Yet at the same time, I'm starting to ponder some existential questions. I'm not ready to call it a crisis, but I'm getting that itch. It's very much a 'what do I want to do when I grow up?' question. Here's what I know:
- I really enjoy what we're doing at Podiobooks.com. Hugely rewarding for me and I know it's a great resource for others, so that's not in any danger
I dig playing in the new media playground, but do wonder this: to what end?
I miss podcasting, but not enough to make me carve out more time do it more often. So enjoy the Utterz. And I ask the same "to what end" question.
Video would be cool, but also terribly time consuming. No, I'm not a record-and-release kind of guy on general principle. No problem if you are. I ain't. See TWE question.
I'm really interested in stepping back from the bleeding edge and teaching some people who are about five years behind how to get two years behind. Unsure about the transition, and I'll miss the edge.
How about you? Do you try and keep a linear progression to your personal life path, or do you go through these same sorts of things? And if so, do you acknowledge and embrace them, or bury them down deep inside?
