You see, there was no reason to panic

Leo posted this response on the TWiT site to the hurricane he created on Sunday night:

I had no idea what a storm my little sentence would generate. Hey, I was tired, dispirited, and trying to figure out how to do a show without any contributors. I really didn’t mean to scare you!

I do appreciate the incredible outpouring of support. Over 400 comments on my post, thousands of Diggs and comments, and many of you even added to your donation. Thanks so much! (Some asked for additional levels of support – I’ve added a $5 and $10 monthly subscription for you.) Money’s not the problem, but it is a great way to show your support.

I’ve exchanged emails with all the TWiTs and we’ve agreed to keep the show going, with some new systems in place to reduce burn out (including my own) and keep the shows fresh.

So thanks for all your support. We’re so glad you like TWiT and we’ll keep doing it as long as you keep listening.

This Week in Tech (TWiT) is the flagship podcast for most techies – there is no way he would be so shortsighted not to know that. What has happened though – the blogosphere went nuts (creating huge publicity), he’s had a surge in donations (it sometimes takes a fright to get people to open their wallets), he’s added 2 more donation levels of $5 and $10 per month, and without much fanfare, there are 4 new podcasts in the Network.

Inside the Net looks like it has changed its name to net@nite – still with Amber Mac and Leo. There was some new artwork on the site earlier – not there now for some reason.

You have crossed over into the iLifeZone. It is a special place where you can learn how to get the most out of your investment in your Mac hardware and software. Our blog is updated several times each week. And listen to our podcast on the 1st, 10th and 20th of each month.

Inside the Black Box
Join Alex Lindsay and the Pixel Corps crew as they give you an inside view of visual effects production techniques and tools.

VFX: The Visual Effects Show
VIDEO: Ron Brinkmann, Alex Lindsay and friends review visual effects of the latest movies while discussing the challenges and technologies of today’s visual effects pipeline. A great show for beginners, experts, and even bystanders!

Interesting times ahead for the best podcast network (and no, I don’t like netcast as an alternative to podcast).
