Podiobooks – Potty-o-books

I’m currently listening to one of my favorite podcasts. I won’t mention it, or link to it, since this isn’t a very nice post, but I think this needs to be said. Hopefully no one will be offended.

It appears that some authors are serializing their writing using the podcast format. They have adopted the term Podiobook, at least as far back as April 2005.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that anyone said this term out loud. When being discussed the term sounds much more like Potty-o-books than podiobooks, of course, carrying a whole different connotation than intended.

I’m writing this just as a heads up to all you authors out there. If you want this medium to be accepted universally, you might think of changing what you call it. The average American is going to think twice about getting involved with something that sounds like potty.

Happy Leap Day

Here’s hoping everyone had a nice leap day.

Want to apologize for the lack of content this week. I’ve been busy trying to get all caught up on work. Planning a trip to Moab next weekend, and I want to have as much done as possible.

Look for more next week, and soon new Pics from Moab.

Rockies Computers Fold Like a Lawn Chair

Our local Colorado Baseball team, the Colorado Rockies, had a bit of a SNAFU this morning with sales of their World Series tickets.

The decision was made by the team to only make the tickets available online. Unfortunately, after 8.5 Million hits, and some serious webserver meltdown, ticket sales were suspended.

The worst part, the Rockies are getting the heat for this when I’m sure they paid a princely sum of money to Paciolan to provide the online ticket sales.

Happy Birthday to Me

OK, so this is it. As of this morning I am no longer in the 18-34 demographic. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, I am the ripe old age of 35.

Feel free to send money, gifts, whatever you think is appropriate.
