Back on February 27th, podcasters converged on a house in Virginia, and people of all different stripes converged on their computers all over the world. They came together for an internet auction to raise funds for the future of a small girl called Sonic Boom: The Boom Effect. During this 10 hour event, goods and services donated from all over the world were auctioned off in an online chat room while a live video chat defied space and time by managing to LAG AHEAD of the actual bidding.

The Boom Effect

This post is going to be a bit of a departure from our previous offerings.  I’d like to ask for your help, and to assure you that this is a good cause.  Yes, I’m asking you to give, but you’ll get something back, too.

Back in January of this year, my friend Tee Morris lost his wife Natalie to complications of the flu.  It was sudden, and tragic, for otherwise she was in the prime of her life.  This left Tee as the sole support of their 5 year old daughter, known as Sonic Boom on the internet.  That’s Tee and Sonic Boom in the icon.  You can click for a larger picture.
