    Great podcast as always. But…. I much prefer the choppy faster paced editing style. Was unique.

    One of the best business mindset messages I’ve heard in a long time. Izzy and I have attempted similar discussions too about creating your own path and not asking permission to go down it. Excellent show, gents.

    Thanks Matt. Wow I’m really learning a lot from you guys on the call, I appreciate you taking the lead on a lot of stuff. I think everyone is furiously taking notes! :D Do you like the slower pacing on this episode, or did you prefer the really choppy previous style?

    Yeah Tim this kind of thing can spiral out of control really quick! The moral/legal distinction is one I’ve thought of for a long long time now. I think for a lot of people, this realization that codes don’t necessarily have moral content is a realization made late in life… kind of like when kids figure out their parents are “real” people… I’m constantly amazed when I meet people in positions of power and influence about how normal they seem. “this guy is making calls for me!!??” and what’s worse is that it’s not that guy…. its a collective… anyway I could go on…. hope you guys would follow up on this stuff sometime would be interested to hear your philosophies…. i really like it when you go philosophical because you are good at it and not many people are.

    I personally prefer this one :) Was a bit weird for me before with the cutting, too much good stuff coming too fast! But that’s just me! Love the calls man, thanks for making it happen :)

    Again, another great episode. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
    “Rules are made for those that are unwilling to make there own.” – Chuck Yeager (first pilot to fly faster than the speed of sound.)

    Cheers, guys.

    Hey thanks for dropping by. !! great quote there…

    Dan, I totally dug the philosophical. I actually think it’s indispensable to entrepreneurship because it can give people the fire to be themselves. There really is a lot to be said about the moral/legal distinction, as well as relocating out of places of what might be called “institutional” or “collectivist” constraint. In this way, if the institutions don’t lend themselves towards innovation and towards inspiring individuals, then eventually they die off themselves and something better eventually takes it place. Later on, man!

    Word man, I guess I downplay the importance of this stuff because I put up with a lot of hell as a philosophy student “what are you going to do with that?!!?” well… .it turns out I’m going to start a business :D Thanks for dropping by, will think about more stuff to do like this in the future.

    Really looking forward to hearing this episode but I’m getting a 404 from iTunes. If there’s anything you can do at your end, please help. Otherwise, just keep rockin’ it.

    Great podcast, having someone the ground to go and sit with the factories in China is also a great way to protect yourself. Both my business partner and I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with LL.M degrees in Chinese business law. Once you have someone that understands the local culture, language and law it can be a great help when you need to put some pressure on suppliers.

    I had that problem, too. I just downloaded it from the link above and uploaded it to my ipod.

    Another great pocast, guys! Really started me thinking about breaking “rules” and how to get out of this mindset, which doesn’t come natually for me but you’ve pointed out lots of reasons why it’s advantageous.

    I also liked the audio/editing style of this podast better, too. It’s easier to listen to than the choppier style.

    Thanks Jeffrey. I tried iTunes again. No dice. So, I’ve downloaded direct.

    Hey Matt, you are right..a handshake does still matter. Thanks for posting!

    OK, I haven’t listened yet as I am waiting for the direct download to finish at a Panera Bread location. But — I have to agree that your previous compression was a bit too choppy for my tastes. If you could allow for maybe 1/2 to 1 second longer before the blank spaces get deleted that might work. Now if I could just listen to this episode……

    Noted on that one Glenn. Seems most listeners are agreeing with you. Still troubleshooting this RSS issue today. I think you’ll enjoy the editing on this one…. I’d like to hear your thoughts when we can get your hands on it…

  • http://vagabondians.com Glenn Dixon

    Download completed, will probably listen in the morning.

    Oh’ there’s nothing like rule breaking… running out of a resturant without paying the bill for shit servce, sneaking into luxury hotels to use their pools and steam rooms, bribing an airsteward $500 to sit in business class… not that I’ve done any of that ;)

    hahaha that’s fantastic… I love the using fancy hotel’s amenities for free….

    Loved the podcast. Seemed like you guys took it to a “deeper” level.

    I like the clearer audio quality but I did like the fast paced editing style of the previous episodes. It definitely seemed more “you.” This seemed more professional, but I liked how unique your earlier style was.

    Also, the faster audio quality usually ends with a shorter episodes. I can usually find a place for 25 minute podcasts anytime I want. 30 minutes on the other hand seems like a big commitment. Maybe that’s just me though :).

    Joel… noted on that… seems that most people are voting shorter pace. I think I’m liking it really fast but with no jump cuts. We’ll try to keep the episodes short as well. Unfortunately, I think on 60 we ramble.. but we’ll get our act back in gear.

    Not sure we’ll be able to keep up the deep :)
