I love reading Scripting News, Dave Winer’s website about technology (RSS, XML, blogging, outliners). I check in a couple times a day. I had always had an idea in my head of what Dave would sound like. But, now, due to the magic of podcasting & audioblogging, you can now hear what he sounds like. So, what does he sound like? An old surfer pot-head. He’s got that pot-head speech pattern, that little "heh heh heh" laugh, man. But a likeable, smart one. Remember when you were in college and you had that English/History/CS teacher that was always the non-conformist, the one you knew you could buy some weed from if you really need it? Well that’s what he sounds like to me.
