The Merlin Show: Chris Wetherell; High-res feed

We're wrapping up our launch week of The Merlin Show with a terrific interview and a new feature announcement.

First, don't miss today's interview with Chris Wetherell, in which we hear how our favorite drumming Google engineer has learned to embrace email mediocrity and has created a "walled garden" using his Treo. Great stuff (and viewable from this page, after the jump).

Next, I wanted to announce the High-resolution podcast feed for The Merlin Show. It's available for subscribing at http://feeds.themerlinshow.com/TheMerlinShowHi (or just subscribe via iTunes).

This feed contains the same content as the iPod-optimized version of the feed, but it's a lot bigger in terms of file size and square pixelage; it is not for the faint of bandwidth.

Either one is easy to subscribe to in the reader of your choice:

Thanks for the hi-res feed...

Thanks for the hi-res feed and show. Different and humble is good.

First-world epiphany. Yesterday, after another foot of snow, I was heading over to the store at 5:30AM to pick up some cold medicine. Feeling a little self-absorbed and sorry for myself. There, crossing the street is a guy with a hat on that says, "BLIND AND DEAF". Behind him he's dragging some gear with big signs for the bus, with his destination printed on them.

Thaaatttttttttt pretty much put everything in perspective for me. We've all got it so easy and it's all so silly.

But hey, I just picked up a Nokia N800 for 20% off at the going out of business CompUSA today! SNAP! Yes, I still have a lot of work to do.

I'll always remember that guy, and be grateful to him for the way he slapped me with a graduate degree in persistence, courage, and will.

My N800 is taking so long to charge. Man, this sucks!

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
