Time for another installment of the “interesting people” series…
Those of us that live online exist in a world of “What’s in it for me”, and I’m sure I’m not alone in that I tend to find people more interesting the more interests I share with them. Some call it a fishbowl, but I prefer to look at it as a “Birds of a feather” kind of thing, where people self-assemble based on shared interests.
John and I have a lot in common. Like mine, his online presence has almost nothing to do with his day-to-day job. (I think he may be a spy for an overseas lingerie manufacturer, but I’m not sure). His presence serves very much as an outlet for his (seemingly boundless) creativity. He’s into music, photography, podcasting, and has a wicked sense of humour. This year, he showed attendees at PAB2010 that he also has BALLS OF STEEL when he sang his Jolt! presentation “Thank God I’m an amateur” a capella.
Do yourself a favour, check out some of John’s creative endeavours:
- John’s blog: Poke the Bear (features his music too)
- The On the Log Podcast (he recently interviewed me about my Pirate Radio days)
- His latest project is a photography blog, check out My Third Eye.
- A photowalk to say goodbye to Kodachrome film
That should keep you busy for a while, see you next week!
