So I need your help …
… but first, an exciting announcement! I’ll be joining forces with the crew at 5by5.tv. It’s *the* top podcasting network for tech podcasts. It’s filled with people I love listening to (and reading) like John Gruber, Jason Snell, and Tony Siragusa … wait, I mean John Siracusa. It’s a tech wonderland over there and I’m excited that Dan Benjamin saw my vision. We’re going to start the show in mid-February, once I decompress a bit from the Indianapolis Super Bowl.
Steve Jobs often said that Apple was located at the intersection of technology and liberal arts. I live near the intersection of technology and sports. I’m a gadget geek, an Apple guy, and an equipment aficionado. I think a lot of people are like me, but that they haven’t had that kind of place. I do it some with my past podcasts, but we’re going to go a bit more in that direction with this one.
(Quick note: SI Inside Fantasy isn’t going anywhere, or changing. It will continue and I still love doing the show. This is just a different venue for a bit of a different venture.)
So, that help. We’ve been referring to the show as “Sports Geek” as a working title, but there’s a couple problems with that. First, it’s not terribly original. Second, “geek” is often used a pejorative, not by us - the geeks - but by those that don’t understand us. I’m hoping that you can come up with something better. Send your suggestions to my Twitter feed (@injuryexpert) and the winner will get a special baseball draft package.
How special? I’ll be on call for you during one baseball draft. I’ll put all my sources and effort into helping you have the best draft ever. I’m not saying it’s a valuable prize package, but it’s not too shabby.
So give me your ideas and you may not only see your name in pixels on the uber-cool 5by5 site and hear it intoned by the deep-voiced announcer voice, but get a prize to boot. Go.
