I’m still playing with ways to even out the sound in the interviews without causing Matt to sound like a John Lennon dub or squash the interviewee into sounding like they are coming out of a can. It just seems to be the nature of the beast when it…

For a while now I’ve been toying with the idea of taking the AST BBST Foundations course.  Up until now, I didn’t think I had the time to devote to it but now with our book completed and V1 of PowerPivot shipped and me not attending any conferences this year I think I can do […]
