    I'll rename this subforum when we get more regular bloggers, but for now I'm leaving it as The Mike Moffat (#2 at Schiit) Blog. I don't when he is going to have time to start on his blog, but he asked me today if he could start a blog here and I replied yes. I think what I really meant was hell yeah!

    Guys like Mike have been around in the industry for a long time. If you guys have ever had the opportunity to hang out and have a beer with guys like him, you'll get to hear some interesting stories about the industry, the technologies over time, comparing audio schlongs, and maybe even stuff about blow, hookers, and porn kingpins. The SuperBAF Golden Schlong Award was likely inspired from my conversations with him. He is a winner of the Golden Schlong Award too, just that we have not awarded him with the medal yet.

    Mike started on his audio journey in the 60s and he thought the stories and knowledge that he had to share would be something of particular interest to the guys here, since we tend to more be "elite" and aren't "tards".

    Can't wait to see the first post as this sounds very promising! I have a lot of questions for someone like him and would love to pick his brain on the knowledge he has.

    This is wonderful!

    And he's a delightful chap to chat with.

    What'll start as a directed, technical discussion, will morph into an exploration of audio-history and then into a passionate discussion about music. He's a super-nice guy and despite being nothing less than an industry luminary, there's never an "attitude" or any pretense. Just a music-loving enthusiast!

    I imagine you're past the "getting to know you" stage then ... ;)

    And he has, for sure, an interesting slant on phraseology.

    It'll just be nice to have him around here.

    Can anyone start a blog here? Is there a limited range of acceptable topics?

    Rule #1: Moffat is allowed to blog after 2 hours of drinking hard alcohol.

    Rule #2: No. not everyone is allowed to start a blog here. go find Wordpress.

    Imagine putting a "portable hole" into a "bag of holding" ...

    The effect is much the same.

    Thank you for those pearls of wisdom. Who would have thought there was a place on the Internet dedicated to blogging? For an encore, it would be nice if you could define the term, and provide both an etymology and short history, all illustrated with edifying examples.

    Let me rephrase my question: Is this a "by invitation only", "with permission", or "until your blog is removed by the mods" type of sub-forum? I'm asking someone with the authority to answer. @Marvey @zerodeefex @ultrabike et al

    I imagine this is just about the right moment... Could someone take the time to bump @baldr to Friend status? I'm pretty sure Mike don't do no Facebook...

    I believe he really likes the audience here - that we have good moderation, are a little bit further along in our audio journeys, and are selective as to who we allow to post dumb stuff.

    Ancient ones deserve deference and respect. Too many young punks these days with attitude: "I don't defer to no one".
