Summary

Paul talks with Adrien about the state of the Empire. Paul starts the podcast by talking about the email flow. He then moves on to thank the people who sent him really wonderful emails and gifts via snail mail. Paul expresses that he feels bad for not responding to all of the emails, but mentions that he has read all of them.

They then move on to Paul's policy on using the material he has online. Paul mentions the upcoming podcast series on the book Just Enough: Lessons in Living Green from Traditional Japan. That series will be available only for purchase only.

Paul talks about how surprised he is that the political podcast sold so much. He talks about the upcoming Kickstarter on rocket stoves.

People have been asking how things were going with Paul's new laptop. Turns out, he is not too impressed with it. Paul and Adrien talk about the problems with Paul's new camera and how it has made editing videos harder. They then talk about his new cell phone, how he has gone through a dozen headsets.

Paul tells the story of a guy who told him how to run his forums while his forum is a ghost town.

Paul admits that he is coffee's bitch and gives his advice to youth. However, for those who are already dependant on coffee, he talks about how he went through many ways of brewing and came up with a very simple solution.

They move on to talk about PIPA/SOPA and piracy, food forest instead of orchard and how to convert an existing orchard. He talks about LED lights, the new forums at Permies, the Sepp event, the book promo and the Daily-ish email.

Paul and Adrien wrap up the podcast talking ways people can promote their sites for free, but that we are looking for sponsors for money, banner swaps, link-for-link, and banner sales.

The podcast only runs for 18 minutes and cuts off after talking about using Paul's stuff. So most of the stuff on the list is not included.

Re: new laptops loaded with junk-ware: The first thing to do with a new computer is reformat the hard drive. I mean the long, complete erase and build from scratch. Recommend doing this once every 1-2 years, depending on use (that means once per year for you, Paul). It's like night and day.

I've only gotten a computer virus while using anti-virus software. I've been free of both for almost ten years now. Of course, I do stick to safe neighborhoods...

Hey I was wondering if Paul might be interested In an idea I had that he could make a few extra dollars Fairly easily. To go along with the idea of reviewing books, what if he sold the books has some spot on the website and create a thread on for me pacifically for discussing the books. Then we could read the section of the book and listen to the review at the same time, that way we can all have a permaculture book club.

Don't we already have a forum for talking about books?

Yes and no. It's there if you search in iTunes but it didn't download itself so it wasn't on my computer.

Sponsoring

I support a couple of forums/podcasts financially to the tune of ~$14/month.

One gives me discounts to vendors and the other throws in free stuff when I purchase from their store or I get access to deeply discounted items that normal shoppers would not get.

I want to encourage the team to look into setting up a "donate" button to paypal or whatever. Right now both places I support are setup as recurring donations thru paypal.

I am set up now to buy stuff via Paul's links to Amazon but I don't buy a lot so if you set up recurring donation system I will donate monthly. I will continue to buy stuff thru your links as my need arises.

You get a few people doing this and soon enough the collective is paying for the server hosting. Tie this in with the people that are on the daily-ish email and maybe some discounts for donator's and who knows what will happen.

I am sure that you have thought of this or have been told this by others but I just wanted to reinforce it.
 
It will give me the powers of the gods. Not bad for a tiny ad:
