On this week’s episode, Jatan talks about how he became interested in space exploration in school, why the Moon is much more than a big rock in the sky, and how he has made Micro.blog his internet base station.

On this episode, Laurence Warner joined us for a chat shortly before his debut double album Smalltown Dreamer was released under his stage name Cerulean. We talked about using Micro.blog as a creator and performer, how Micro.blog could attract more folks from the performing arts, and the fun of meeting up with another microblogger (Jas) in person.

PS. Laurence will be a presenter at Micro Camp, coming this Friday! Sign up to receive an invite to this free two-day gathering and community celebration.

We’re back with Micro Monday podcasts! This week, Jas talks about how he became a “slowpreneur,” what he likes about Micro.blog, and how we can encourage more people to join our community.

A special episode to mark a milestone for the Micro Monday podcast. Manton and Jean talk with Patrick Rhone, who previously appeared on Episode 4. We take a look at how Micro.blog has evolved and where it’s going, focusing on these questions:

How important are independent blogs, considering what we have seen elsewhere in social media? How has Micro.blog and the community evolved? How could Micro.blog be improved?

Our pets share opinions too.

This week’s guest is Rom. According to his bio on Micro.blog, he is “geek to the max.” He is also an avid photographer, and especially enjoys sharing food photos. He shares a lot of photos on Flickr, and we talk a bit about how online communities evolve. Finally, we talk about a local delicacy, the purple yam, which can be used in many tasty dishes and condiments.

This week’s guest Jess shares her wide variety of interests, including linguistics, the indie web, a revealing Harry Potter sorting quiz, and her tabby cat Gidget.

Mandaris Moore, aka Manny, is this week’s guest. We talk about his journey from AIM to MySpace to Twitter before he landed on Micro.blog, a place that makes him happy. Check out his series of Swift Slowly posts, where he shares his journey of learning, and his photos of Lillie the adorable pandemic rescue dog.

This week’s guest, Nell is a literacy tutor based in New England, who enjoys exploring new worlds via books, blogs, and virtual realities. We share our favorite reads in science fiction and mysteries, as we acknowledge the many tangents our discussion could take.

A couple of Nell’s recommended books:

Connie Willis, To Say Nothing Of The Dog (Oxford Time Travel)

Diana Wynne Jones, Howl’s Moving Castle (World Of Howl #1)

This week’s guest, Greg, shares some warmth from the Gulf Coast of Florida. Greg tells us why his microblog is really his first blog, despite his years of experience building and maintaining websites. We talk about whether the notion of a “challenge” is helpful when it comes to maintaining a blogging streak. At the end, we nerd out a bit about Star Trek: Voyager.

On this week’s episode, Mario (@mariovillalobos) talks photography, social media pros and cons, finding Micro.blog by following Alan Jacobs’ (@ayjay) work, and the surprise that folks in distant places appreciate his photos of leaves in Montana.

Dominik has a lot going on. And we don’t even talk about the house he is building or where he got his internet handle @ohBananaJoe. (But you can check out the song on YouTube.)
