Podcasting Equipment: Audio-Technica 2020 microphone

Audio Technica AT2020

 

I recently began podcasting after years of blogging and social media engagement via multiple Twitter (primarily @0bytes, @ADubiousDude), Instagram and other accounts.

 

Why

This venture arose, like several of my information security peers, out of a desire to promote my career through social engagements.  A partner and I agreed to invest in this venture at professional information security strategists.  My decision to stand up a podcast about my faith followed as a way to re-purpose the equipment and practices into which I invest for podcasting, extending my stewardship of these tools and skills.

Requesting input: Charities

October 11th, 2009 Comments off

I believe in financial responsibility in several ways, one of which is giving funds to endeavors that benefit others.  One area I evaluate my giving as being poorer than I want it to be is international giving.  Someone mentioned World Vision as an international agency and, after checking it on Charity Navigator (Philanthropy.com’s article about CN’s evaluation methods), I can understand the concern some folks have about the salary of World Vision’s president.  There are valid evaluations and arguments for either viewpoint (he should/should not earn that salary working for a non-profit/NGO) but regardless of those comments I’m still considering whether to utilize that agency as a method to give internationally.

Being Careful with Idols

February 22nd, 2009 5 comments

I have several friends who like some public figures; namely, Ron Paul and Dave Ramsey.  Oftentimes my appreciation of these people seems to fall something short of my friends’ appreciation.

There is value in finding the best example you can and promoting that example.  Exceptional people should be commended and presented publically to combat pessimism and cynicism and to enlighten us as to how we can behave if we hold ourselves to a higher standard.
