Atwood: edit me!
Spolsky: edit me!
Calcanis: edit me!
Calacanis: Audacity is pretty dope.
Spolsky: Yes, At one point I decided that I was taking this seriously enough that I needed to umm...
Calacanis: Educate yourself on audio ?
Spolsky: Yeah, yeah and so I was going to get, what is Cool Edit now called um ? They've
got a new name for it ? Uh, Audition.
Spolsky: Adobe Audition, so like I'm going to learn how to do this or Pro-Tools or something like that.
Spolsky: And it's just too complicated, it just blew my mind with all the features.
Calacanis: I think it's the 10 miles an hour rule like it's going to take thousands of hours for
you to become proficient at it.
Calacanis: And you might not have that much time in your life.
Spolsky: And somehow like Audacity I was able to just like cutting and pasting little sound things.
Calacanis: Yep, it's pretty cool.
Spolsky: And it's fine.
Calacanis: I did my first podcast, on my own with that.
Spolsky: With Audacity ?
Calacanis: Yep it worked pretty well, you could level things and...
Spolsky: Right, right.
Calacanis: Cut and paste clip things.
Atwood: Are you guys, wait are you guys both in New York.
Calacanis: We're in the same office.
Atwood: Oh, OK.
Spolsky: Oh that's not fair.
Atwood: You're hanging out together.
Atwood: You guys are like buddies, that's great.
Spolsky: So Jason you're here for New York Internet Week ?
Calacanis: I'm here for Interweb Week.
Spolsky: What do they do, what is that ?
Calacanis: Uh, Internet Week is basically a marketing campaign to get people
psyched about the Internet in New Your City in the companies here.
I guess. I mean we used to have all the Silicon Alley reporter events and stuff like that.
Spolsky: Yeah, you used to be Mr New York Silicon Alley.
Calacanis: Uh yeah, a lot of people credit me with the term Silicon Alley which is not true, but uh..
Spolsky: Who's term was it really ?
Calacanis: You know I did a LexisNexis search back in the day and I found somebody
had used it to describe like Boston or Philadelphia or something like that.
Spolsky: We don't have alleys in New York, that's the one thing about Manhattan that
Manhattan does not have.
Calacanis: Not really no. We have like weird curvy streets down in Chinatown.
