I have started a new semester at college and as anyone who has had even a passing glance at the Bible can attest, some of the books are not the most riveting reading you’ve ever had. ‘Numbers‘, for example, is a book that I could easily use as a cure for insomnia. So I picked […]

Okay, I’ll ‘come out’ and admit it — I’m a Shelaholic. The man could go and make Jeffrey Dahmer look like a kindergarten teacher and I’d still read him. Shel has the most amazing set of credentials: he is prescient — he is able to read the winds of change he is a prophet — […]

What a busy week! While he prefers “illegal” action,” Allan’s been threatened with “legal action” by Melanie Tannenbaum, a WikiBios user (we discussed WikiBios in Chat# 11), after posting about WikiBios on Desirable Roasted Coffee. Allan and I agree WikiBios is still a bad idea & just getting worse. And we believe a lot of […]

Well, no one can say I haven’t been giving it a fair go… I eventually found Shelville’s FIR booth on Podcaster’s Island on Second Life. This is what their booth looks like — that’s me on the left. On a wooden crate. Probably getting a splinter in my derriere. Here’s me sitting on the other […]

Proving that a few days off doth not a slouch make, Jenkins and I have been hard at work in the kilns, creating coffee mugs for the delight of the audio cognoscenti. Handcrafted from finest Venezuelan clay, these objets d’art are a collectors piece and worthy of gracing the finest coffee houses of the gentry […]

Good to see that another major corporate is starting to explore Social Media. UK finance sector podcasts with a light touch Life insurance group Prudential is using a podcast featuring comedian Tony Hawks [Lee: a mildly funny, inoffensive, middle-of-the-road English comedian, not the ace US sk8er] to reach out to people who ordinarily may not […]

Steve Crescenzo. Love him or hate him, the guy sure can write! Putting things in perspective …He could barely do it. I still can’t believe he didn’t have a hernia. Maybe he did. I could have sworn that at one point I saw one of his testicles roll out the bottom of his pants and […]

Well, that’s enough about me; what do YOU think of me? You are a very talented communicator You have a superb voice for radio and podcasting I had ‘Light and Tasty’ and two cups of tea for breakfast Will that do? UPDATE: the rebranding of DonnaP is working! This is a search term used on […]

Okay. I believed Shel and Neville when they said podcasting was the next thing. They were right. So when Shelville say that Getta Second Life is something more than just a curiosity, I have to have faith in their track record so far. So I have cancelled my ‘free, trial and error, let’s see what […]

Google the term lee hopkins and you will find me at positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6. Refine the search further, using quotes around my name (“lee hopkins“) and I add 10th position out of about 24 million. It is no coincidence that my feed for this blog has the title “Lee Hopkins” in […]
