Attracting Good Ideas with a Ravenous Magnet


Continuing the show from last week, we’re chatting with our musician friend, Seth. The gang discusses the evolution of business on the web and changing technology over the last 10 years. Should you cultivate your passion as a hobby or as a profession?

  • When Seth was working in news broadcasting, he totally dug using a Ross Video Switcher.
  • Recent guest Justin Hall spoke at the xoxo festival recently. See his appearance here.
  • Paul has a love-hate relationship with javascript.
  • Paul argues that these days employers aren’t hiring people in technology for what they know and what they can do. Instead people are hired for how fast they can learn and for what they will be doing in two years. His advice, have a portfolio.
  • Seth remembers the Real Genius days when folks interested in technology went to university to learn lasers.
  • Living without human contact for 27 years? Check out the North Pond Hermit.
  • Seth enjoys podcasts by Joe Rogan and Marc Maron.
  • Paul says collaboration is the key to not getting stuck in the artistic loop — over thinking your work or being too critical of yourself.
  • Seth is excited to see how Elon Musk and Tesla Motors change the world of business.
  • Chris & Paul suggest people check out the community of developers on
