  • Early days for me
  • But trying things out
  • I did a guest post with Jean – Episode 41 – about 16 months ago. Have a listen, she does a great job of relaxing who she talks to.

Goals of the Convocast

  • Asynchronous conversation – interesting
  • Learning more about Andy
  • Getting comfortable in talking into a microphone
    • simpler than by yourself and a live conversation
  • Clarifying thoughts on People First

… and then we will see!

The Convocast Index ….

8John is very pleased with himself at one level having replied to Andy’s Convocast 7 in less than a week … a matter of days even … and yet he still manages to mess it up … Here4:58John
7Andy highlights some of the issue he and others like him are facing in the Aerospace industry and asks John what he see as being different.Here6:06Andy
6Finally, John once more puts lips to microphone and answers Andy’s questions … after he waxes lyrical over Andy’s last Convocast. Seriously … go listen to Convocast 5 and find out how Andy has spent his life.Here6:00John
5Andy summarized his career to date in (ideally) the space industry – but sometimes the aerospace industry. FASCINATING. He then asks John a waldo question!!Here10:21Andy
4John expands a little more on cooperatives – their Rochdale genesis and how they tie into his People First initiative. He finally gets round to asking Andy a question. He wants to know more about his career – and just how did he end up being a rocket science.Here4:24John
3Andy goes ahead anyway and provides a very detailed summary of his work in and around IndieWeb, highlights a couple of books he has written and in the show notes provides an absolute pile of links to IndieWeb resources. He ends by asking John about Cooperatives.Here7:32Andy
2John provides an overview of himself and how he came to be here – and then concludes by failing to ask Andy a question at the end.Here4:02John
1Where Andy introduced the concept of Convocasts in general and specifically what this one is about.Here2:20Andy
