One Mammoth of a Job: An Interview with Eugen Rochko of Mastodon

We interview the creator of Mastodon about how the project started, where it's going, and what their experiences was like with implementing ActivityPub wedistribute.org/2018/07/inter

Looks like they posted the video of the interview I did a little while back with Euronews Turkey. Really happy with how it came out :)

(The questions are in Turkish but my replies are in English.)

New /now update (March 10, 2019) after four months of no update at all.

They don’t produce short-film-like and short-film-lenghty music videos like Michael Jackson’s Speed Demon anymore.

Hm… why? Attention span? Budget?

This was day 22 of 120, I’m validating my 👷‍♂️ startup studiolist.io within 4 months while traveling and working (day job, voiceover). If there’s no market validation until Jun 1, 2019 the startup 🧟‍♂️ dies.

…I’m planning to use the text and the soon-to-be-made recording as a reference VO project for my category „story-commercial“, „storymercial“, or „stercial" ^^.

It’s close to 2am now, and I’ll just watch another episode of season 1 of „Silicon Valley“ and then call it a day.

This time I wanted to write a copy text for a project by a new acquaintance (potential friend) of mine. My initial approach was to write a short commercial text which I then could voice after. But after some writing and drafting I turned it into a small 10-part piece that he can use for his Instagram marketing efforts. It’s around 600 words that I will voice tomorrow or another day…

I then did the day job for a few hours and it was already dark evening and I was getting cold because the rooms are isolating heat very well. When it’s not that warm, that works detrimental.

So, I had a nice bath in the bathtub. doG did I enjoy every drop of warm water. Super cozy and comfy. First time that I was able to relax so much that I felt like home. Awesome! An hour and a bit more after I shared my enthusiasm of the bath experience ;) and then went into work-mode again.

Anyway, a rather normally-long night sleep (7 hours) followed by an extended breakfast (included in the room price) at 10.30am was followed by a close to 5-hour session of publishing the days 16 to 21 of on Insta, Twitter, LinkedIn and Mastodon. Lots of effort/time but I want this documentation to be available where people are (Facebook is my only exception).

I had gone to bed at 3am because I had these three nap hours in the afternoon the day before - an afternoon nap can kill your night sleep.

I hope I’ll be able to upload the past 7 days of updates here in Rabat but it seems Internet is also not so super fast in this hotel. A coworking space will (again) be my savior, probably.

Thanks for reading.

I appreciate you.

This was day 21 of 120, I’m validating my 👷‍♂️ startup studiolist.io within 4 months while traveling and working (day job, voiceover). If there’s no market validation until Jun 1, 2019 the startup 🧟‍♂️ dies.

After lunch and the walking tour (I actually overate with salad niçoise and tacos with fries plus an avocado juice, so I felt slightly „food-sick“), I had a good 3-hour nap followed by close to two-hour cold-calling and contacting session. Did someone say call center? :P

The rest of the evening was dedicate to the day job and writing these lines!

In Rabat, I walked through the medina to my hotel (Hotel des Oudaias), one of the fancy ones with a stunning view towards the ocean. I also took some time for extended lunch and a little bit of a walk through the Kasbah, which is an old castle-like building and place. Inside the Kasbah area it was commercial and artsy at the same time. Nice atmosphere. The blue-white houses gave me a little bit of a feeling of Chefchaouen where I had been three years ago. I’m a fan of Chefchaouen!

Smart, young, wanting to learn, doing business while studying and a good English speaker and listener. Made my day this young blood :)

Zirari also impressed by being on time (even early, like a German). He took it very seriously which again made a big impression on me. This guy save the reputation I had of Moroccans for being late.

Travel day: from Casablanca to Rabat. Before I took the train from Casa Port I had a friendly meeting with 20-year old Zirari who is one third business manager, one third student (studying audio-visual production) and one third artist (singer and audio engineer). Impressive guy and someone who knows about lots of stuff like a generalist. With Mohamed and his friends he’s working together on M Power Records (which is part of L’K Wan - that is their umbrella term for everything they’re doing).

This was day 20 of 120, I’m validating my 👷‍♂️ startup studiolist.io within 4 months while traveling and working (day job, voiceover). If there’s no market validation until Jun 1, 2019 the startup 🧟‍♂️ dies.
