Official Bio

Dave Moyer has been in the media world since 2005 when he first started a podcast. Since then, he has worked as a broadcaster, writer and speaker all over the world.

Past

From 2006 to 2008, Dave created, produced and hosted Neocast, a podcast related to the Neopets online game. This show ran for around two years, and gathered an audience of over 40,000 regular listeners, becoming the #1 show in that market. He worked solo and with other hosts to produce weekly episodes, in addition to special bits of information released throughout the week.

Dave also produced and hosted the Neocast Holiday Marathon for two years at this time, a live, three (year one) or four hour (year two) call-in show during the winter holiday season with a broad topic range. These included giveaways totaling in cash to around $2,000 throughout the program. The Holiday Marathon tradition is now being carried on under Bitwire Media, first in 2008 as a twelve hour show, and now as a worldwide syndicated radio show for the same amount of time.

Moyer’s expertise is, however, not limited to broadcasting. He designs and develops all the blogs for his various podcasts and sites, as well as for many others. He is well versed in WordPress, Drupal, and various other content management systems, theme design, PHP, JavaScript, MySQL, CSS, and related code languages. On the WordPress side, he has worked with WordPress.com limitations, the full version of WordPress, and WordPress MU. He’s also written WordPress plugins.

He has a long resume of on-stage and on-camera acting and production, radio shows, and voice overs. He is also a writer, and has written for many different online and offline publications in addition to his personal blog, including renowned tech news blog Ars Technica. Published print works include More Than MySpace: Teens, Librarians, and Social Networking.

In addition, Dave is an active proponent of historic preservation. In 2006, he produced the Historic Colfax Podcast Series in collaboration with Historic Denver, the Colfax Marathon team, and the Library of Congress’ Teaching With Primary Sources program. This series of six podcasts was created and targeted at runners in the marathon, so they could hear about the rich history of the various sites they were running by as they participated in the 26-mile marathon.

Within a year, the podcasts received over 200,000 downloads in the state of Colorado alone, and netted tens of thousands of dollars in grants from The History Channel, Best Buy, and many other organizations for future projects. Dave continues to work actively with local students on new digital media endeavors that are constantly breaking new ground in the world of historic preservation.

As a result, Dave was one of the select few selected across the country to work alongside First Lady Laura Bush in New Orleans, Louisiana in October of that year in conjunction with the History Channel and the Preserve America initiative. He has since co-chaired three local and national summits promoting youth activism in historic preservation. Dave has spoken at the Colorado Preservation, Inc. Saving Places Conference for three consecutive years, in addition to countless others, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Summit in 2008.
