Randy Pausch, well known for his "Last Lecture" he gave at Carnegie Mellon University after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, has died at age 47. My condolences to his family.

 


You can find the site for his new book "The Last Lecture" here.

 


"The Lact Lecture" presentation by Randy is one of the most moving, motivational, inspirational and powerful presentations I have ever seen.

My First Podcast is Complete

After many, many hours of editing, the first ever Citrix Delivery Center Podcast is done (Citrix Systems is my employer).

Citrix Delivery Center Podcast Episode One

 


I had no idea how much work producing, hosting, and EDITING a podcast would be. I also had no idea how much money you could spend on audio equipment and software. There are more toys, gadgets and software tools available for audio production and editing than I could have ever imagined. The one pleasant surprise was how affordable it was to pay for a professionally produced opening, closing and bumper (complete with royalty free custom music and professional voice over talent). Audiobag.com provides a custom opener for only $67. If you have a podcast and are looking to add in a professionally produced opener or professional editing, AudioBag does an excellent job.


Despite this inordinate investment in time and money to get it done, I have enjoyed the experience. Thanksfully, my friend Doug Brown was willing to share his experience and knowledge gained from over 50 podcasts. I made many, many mistakes, but I have learned from them for the next one. I am very pleased with the final product.

I am looking for a public speaking podcaster who would like a co-host and editor. I do not have the time to produce and host an entire podcast in my free time for this blog, but I would love to help out with another one. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
