Hurrican Katrina resource links for the 100,000+ new Houstonians

This Katrina Hurricane Houston Resource page is a great place for Hurricane Katrina evacuees to find everything they need while staying in Houston.

Check back regularly for more helpful medical, shelter, discounts, donation and volunteer links as it is updated frequently. There are so many people lending a helpful hand – let me know what we’re missing!

Did you hear something?

Check this out… it’s a site (kind of like Metroblog) where people post things they’ve overheard in their city.

Podcasting in Houston

Podcasting has come to Houston in a big way – but there is room for your skills to make sure it grows. Your’s truly, is becoming the resident Podgod – helping setup several podcasts as well as broadcasting a few of my own. Riding with the Window Down is a companion podcast to my blog and while it doesn’t have thousands of listeners, it is growing. is a Houston based podcaster focusing on mobile podcasting.

The biggest success so far is the Lone Star Gridiron podcast. It is a podcast that covers high school football in the Texas area. With only two shows under our belt, we already have some advertisers lined up and the listenership is growing fast. This type of niche podcasting has great potential.

A site that is just starting up is called This Week in Houston and it is designed to be a podcast about what is happening in Houston. TWiH is looking to local bands for musical content as well, so if you know of someone – spread the word.

If you are interested in setting up your own podcast, want to get some pub for your existing podcast, or would like to contribute to TWiH – drop by and check it out. Podcasting is exploding and Houston needs to be a major player in the space. We already have the best bloggers in the country – we need to become the best podcasters in the country… and that includes supporting our own.

Also check out the Houston Podcasting Yahoo Group – it is freshly created and needs some members!

Only in Houston – a creative collective

Tired of missing out on all the coolest creative-type jobs?

Only in Houston is an organization dedicated to keeping creative work in Houston, instead of it leaving the state (or the country for that matter).

Many prospective employers may not be aware of the massive amounts of talent that Houston holds locally and this is a way to organize all different kinds of creative minds into one easily accessible and linked group.

Check out the site for cool events, galleries, job opportunities and even a place to post your resume. This is a really interesting and talented bunch. I would highly suggest getting on their newsletter and attending their events.
