Two neat SXSW06 Podcasts

Recently posted at the SXSW06 Podcast site: Cluetrain: Seven Years Later, which I found very illuminating regarding thoughts on “marketing conversations” and thoughts on what it means to be that kind of company. The speakers were also very articulate. Sink or Swim: The Five Most Important Startup Decisions was another good one, though I attended it primarily to see what Joel Spolsky was like in person. He is also an articulate speaker, as one might expect. The surprise discovery was that Cabel Sasser, one of the co-founders of Panic, is an incredibly likable and engaging speaker. Very real, self-deprecating, and quick; watching Cabel and Joel banter informally was very enjoyable.
