While driving to meet a friend for coffee to discuss some upcoming business plans I was reminded how important social interaction is to me professionally and personally. I personally find what I refer to as analog networking and social interaction to be very rewarding. I have really come a long way in this regard from the IT guy who was content to sit behind his keyboard and interact mostly through IRC, Email and IM. Now I just couldn’t see living any other way, the connections I make with people inspire me to give that much more, to work that much harder and remind me of the important things in my life. Here is the Podcast I recorded while driving to my coffee appointment.
