"a hard worker" [BRUC]


It's been a while, my faithful readers. But seeing that today is 2/21 (221, get it?), I thought I owed you a post. This not-so-great hiatus of the last month was precipitated by an inordinate amount of work; when I say I was working 20-hour days for the last 4 weeks, it's no exaggeration.

As you may know, there's a lot of hard work that goes into this blog and into my podcast. And working for a startup keeps me extraordinarily busy as well. Add to that my family life, and...well, you get the idea. Anyway, I thought that now it might be appropriate to share a little bit of my daily life with you here.

A fellow new media expert, Len Edgerly, came to my house in the fall to interview me for his video podcast Video Pod Chronicles. He interviewed me and my family about the benefits and challenges of working at home and gave plenty of airtime to Sherlock Holmes, even going so far as to title this episode The Adventure of the At-Home Worker and scoring the video with one of Mendelssohn's Lieder (aka Songs Without Words).

You can view Len's fine work by clicking on the embedded video below.



If you liked the music you heard, you might check out Murray Perahia's album that contains works from J.S. Bach, Mendelssohn and Liszt. I highly recommend it for some quiet, relaxing times.


And I hope to get back on my regular schedule with you shortly.

Glad the blog is back, podcast is next, I hope. It is especially nice to see Mindi and the boys, and to gain an insight into the loneliness of the long distance communicator.

It's good to hear from you again, Scott - and I'm glad to know the delay was due to work and not illness.

Wow. Your work situation is just like a cartoonist's. Except my commute is up the stairs.
We don't have cellars on the Gulf Coast.

Charming video.

WELCOME BACK SCOTT. AS YOU CAN SEE, YOU HAVE BEEN MISSED. SEEMS THAT WE ALL WANT THE "FULL MONTY". NOTHING ELSE WILL SATISFY.

Welcome back, Scott! You were greatly missed. It's nice that your hiatus was way less than Holmes' three years. Oh, and you've got a truly beautiful family! -- Esmerelda

Scott,

Wow, I can't believe how similar our work experience is. I also commute downstairs and I sit behind a microphone in my office.

I've got three little ones that enjoy "making an appointment" to see daddy in his office when they are not in school.

I met you only briefly at Podcamp Boston 2 and just now learned that you work with Joseph Jaffey at Crayon.

I was checking out the Crayon site after listening to Jafey Juice.

Small world.

Anyhow! I just wanted to say that I enjoyed the video interview that you posted on your blog!

Have a great weekend!

Cliff
