Rudy’s! Will I get to go there? Is it cab-able from the Hilton? We can go Monday :) I need to get some of the Rub. And moist brisket :)

haha, I typed my comment before the end of the show… I *LOVE* the ending :) And the videos you have been posting Shawn. Well, most of them.

There is a Rudy’s on the way from the Hilton to where ShareASale ThinkTank is being held if you’re going there.

Otherwise, there is a different one that’s closer to downtown Austin.

I actually contacted them to ask if they’d be willing to provide samples of sause and rub to attendees, but they turned me down.

More to come! ;)

I remember Tabitha Soren! I haven’t read Liar’s Poker or Moneyball yet, but they’re on The List.

I was amazed when I found out that the Adam Curry I knew as a master podcaster was the same Adam Curry that I watched on Headbanger’s Ball back in the day.

Hmm…lots of thoughts here:

Shawn..morallly ambiguous offers? Please do tell!

Daniel…Tabitha Soren…YES!

Lisa, having met Michael when I was an investment banking analyst with him, I can assure you, he wasn’t that friendly. Just the cullture of Wall St. back then. All of us analysts were abused and hazed. It might have been his years in London which made him uptight.

Who is the awesome voice in your new podcast intro….and then the dude at the end?

Lastly, Shawn, why don’t you create a Pinterest or Foursquare movie tour of Austin:
People can use that to visit places cheaply like the field where they filmed The Rookie.

Hey Erik -

Things like acai berry diet rebills.

Lots of spots for movies, but that’s a pretty big project:
