@Charles, Let's leave it at this, agreed. I, believe it or not, am not a person who looks for <place your idea here>. What I didn't like was the way you responded to Sert, and I've said to you what it looked like. Hopefuly you'll take a lesson from this and never again answer like that to any clients/potential clients of company you work for.
Unfortunately,your proposition of me going through hours of videos and picking/recording every time you seem to be lost or have no idea what is being said to you, will am afraid not be possible to fulfill. Simply it would take too much of my time and I just don't have so much time to spare.
Another thing, I'm not going to sent you private correspondence (forget the fact that you couldn't be even bothered to provide your full email address, playing a smart a_s_s again). As far as I'm concerned, you are doing public work and you going to be publicly scrutinized and criticized. I think that's only fair.
@Charles: You are saying: "All I said was that if you don't like the longer, conversational, randomly-formed-in-situ pieces (which is what I produce much of the time here), then don't watch them".
Excuse me, but it is not what you've said. What you actually said is this:
"Finally, I am a programmer (well, once upon a time that's all I did for Microsoft... I guess now I'm more of a programmer mouthpiece, but I still have my programmer soul and feel quite competent in my abilities to converse technically with practitioners - it's fair if you feel otherwise - just don't watch my interviews, then), so I don't know what you're really talking about."
And from this it is quite obvious that your response in the form "just don't watch my interviews, then" is arrogant and ignorant. The message behind it is "if you don't like it then f... off". So could you stop trying to pretend that you've said something entirely different with entirely different meaning to what you've really said?
And as for strange comments? Isn't that you who said:
"I don't need to pass myself off as anything that I'm not"
So, which one is it? Are you a programmer or are you not? And if you not (for from what I saw you're not) stop pretending to be one:
"I am a programmer (well, once upon a time that's all I did for Microsoft... I guess now I'm more of a programmer mouthpiece, but I still have my programmer soul and feel quite competent in my abilities to converse technically with practitioners"
Firstly, Charles, you may not believe me but you don't have the ability to converse technically with practitioners. It doesn't look like that from the clips I saw so far anyway.
And if you're not a programmer have the guts to admit it, stop pretending to be one, and don't do unscripted interviews because you're clearly have no idea what the guy being interviewed is talking about. That's what I referred to pointing out that most common word used by you during those interviews is excellent and great. Does that make more sense to you now? You are lost during those interviews. That's why I believe that you're incompetent and unqualified for those types of interviews. And I bet lots of people here will/have share my feelings.
And as for conversation and you're low excuse that conversation is this or that? Do you know that saying:
There are not uninteresting topics just uninterested people?
C++ is a fascinating subject, but watching you during those interviews is just painful.
And yes, I know, if I don't like it I do not have to watch it.
C++ rules and rocks!
a) Before filming consult someone who really do hard core programming as an everyday "jobbie" and ask him/her if s/he can write appropriate questions down for you, stop doing "improvised" interviews and this will help
@Charles, "just don't watch my interviews, then" - you [removed]! Those aren't your interviews! Those interviews are supposed to be for the C++ community and you are supposed to be a COMPETENT person to provide them. But you proved that you're not. You are neither professional interviewer, programmer nor a person with a manners. How can any interviewer answer: "just don't watch my interviews, then"???!!!!
And Charles, if you wanna pass as a programmer start sounding like one. The most often I hear from you is: "Excellent, great" - no much substance, because there is none.
@Charles Hi, although I can clearly see that ManipUni has lots of <your opinion here> in fairness, his question: "who those video are aimed at: isn't bad at all. Actually it is quite important to clearly state and define your audience so would you mind and do that?
Are they for beginners? Advanced? etc, you get my gist.
Charles could you please answer to that?
By the way, it's Knowing me knowing you, a-ha, I just couldn't (for some reason) sign up with that nick.
