Seb Talks about What He’s Been Doing
When Seb Prooth of Seb’s Random Thoughts and I first met, we had a comment conversation about a piece he wrote called, Blogger or Writer? Or Both? I enjoyed that chance to get to know a then new SOB in his “natural habitat.”
It’s been fun for this interview to check back with Seb to see how he’s been spending his time. The article that we discussed was posted last May 9th. It sure seems he’s done a lot since then.
Hi Seb! Tell everyone a bit about the guy called Sebastian.
Well that’s a complicated question! I was just talking about this very subject the other day when I was asked what I do, and I had to give a list of Ã¢â¬Åoccupations.Ã¢â¬Â What do I do? Well I am a blogger, obviously. I’m also a writer, technology enthusiast and until recently a podcaster.
For my Ã¢â¬ÅrealÃ¢â¬Â work I am a student of media, and consider myself a film-maker. I am in pre-production on my first short film with real actors. You can see some of my current work on YouTube at www.youtube.com/meltingclock.
Other than what I do, I can say that I am an American residing in the UK. The reason for that is complicated. I am an old 20 next month . . . read into that what you will! There is a full bio of me on my website at www.sebrt.com/about.
My interests include all those things I do plus a crazy list of other things. I have this strange penchant for interviewing people on my blog. That started back on my first podcast Ã¢â¬ÅFrom the DirectorÃ¢â¬â¢s Chair.Ã¢â¬Â
A little about my podcasting Ã¢â¬Åcareer.Ã¢â¬Â
I started podcasting back in December 2005 — I know thatÃ¢â¬â¢s ancient history on the Internet — To make a long story short, my first podcast ran for 17 episodes, and I interviewed some of the movers and shakers in podcasting. In May I merged that podcast with another podcast I was creating with my friend Dave Gray.
Together Dave and I created and hosted what became the weekly Ã¢â¬ÅGlobal Geek PodcastÃ¢â¬Â on which the co-hosts report tech news, web 2.0 happenings and rumblings in the podosphere. The show is light hearted and always includes a wacky news segment. Global Geek Podcast was nominated number 2 podcast to have on your iPod by .Net Magazine in their October 2006 issue.
I left Global Geek Podcast mid September to pursue other projects, however the show is still going strong with a new co-host. I hope that it will continue to grow and gain popularity as long as the hosts are hosting it! You can reach the Global Geek Podcast at www.globalgeekpodcast.com.
