The other night I caught up with Scouta founder and former TPN’r Richard Giles and Microsoft’s local professional nice guy blogger/podcaster Nick Hodge for a chat about the upcoming Australian federal election and was appalled to hear how they both intend voting. Geeks have a responsibility to lead. You’re a smart bunch. You are educated (formally or informally), connected and powerful. Don’t waste your vote.
This is a recording of the conversation. Warning: I used Garageband on the new Macbook to record it and I didn’t bother to equalize it, so it may sound a little rough.
This photo isn’t from the night, it’s one Nick took of me during my Podcamp talk yesterday, but it captures me in full revolutionary rant mode, which works as a visual for this show quite well.
