    Rob, I got a major kick out of your line “get secure with insecurity”! What a very very true thing, that’s the life of a photographer. Thanks for sharing all of your useful insights!

    Great interview. Looking forward to the next part. BTW your posts using YouTube work way better for those of us with less than optimal internet connections. The Vimeo posts took forever to buffer. I would often have to just shut them off out of frustration . I know some people prefer Vimeo, but I’m sure you must have a larger audience with YouTube for this reason. Thank you. Viewing is a much more pleasurable experience now. Also, congratulations on Two Years. You have a great thing going here.

      I definitely agree, Bill. Having the videos hosted by Youtube instead of Vimeo has a lot of potential for a larger audience. Personally, I have started revisiting Phlearn more in the past week because all the videos buffer and stream much better now in my college dorm setting. During the school year I don’t have much control over the quality of my internet connection, Phlearn has definitely made a smart move switching to Youtube. This is also an excellent interview and I am excited for part two!
