Show notes   We had a full house this week on PrairieCast with Lava Row's Nathan T. Wright and Startup City Des Moines' Tej Dhawan in studio and our own Danny Schreiber on Skype.   We took a look back at both the top posts of 2011 as well as the most popular ones and gave our predictions on what will come to be in 2012.   While you're watching the show, take a quick trip over to the PrairieCast facebook page and give us a "like" at facebook.com/prairiecast.   Next week of PrairieCast: Emma Peterson of Tikly and Dhawan (back for week two!).   PrairieCast is a live podcast, recorded weekly, where a group of entrepreneurs gather to discuss current issues in technology and business that relate to the startup community on the Silicon Prairie and is hosted by Andy Brudtkuhl of 48Web and Geoff Wood of Silicon Prairie News.

Untitled This week we introduce three things on the show: a new sponsor (Delta Dental of Iowa), a branded pre-roll "stinger" (introduction to the show) and new lower thirds (that image at the bottom of the video with our names). PrairieCast is growing up! We discussed Dwolla's decision to cut fees on transactions less than $10, the Silicon Prairie News mention in the Steve Jobs biography, the question of the #2 startup in Des Moines, last weekend's Barcamp Des Moines, and the Kauffman Foundation's video on where entrepreneurs get their money. While you're checking out the show the show, feel free to drop over to facebook.com/prairiecast and give us a "Like." Also, we'd love to have more ratings and reviews in iTunes (audio or video), even if you prefer to watch the show here on Silicon Prairie News. Can you help us out? Next week on PrairieCast: Jordan Lampe of Dwolla and Emma Peterson of Tikly (back for week two!).

Untitled Not one, not two, but three guests on this week's PrairieCast. When he heard that the "stop online piracy act" (SOPA) was on our discussion list for the week, BrownWinick's own Drew Larson couldn't wait to drop his knowledge of the subject on our audience. Actually, that's not true. After learning that Larson was planning a seminar to address the topic later this week, I asked him (on way late notice) to sit in with previously scheduled guests Sam DuRegger of Charming Beard Productions and Tej Dhawan of Startup City Des Moines. The five us had a good conversation going not only about SOPA but also lessons to be learned from the whiners in Silicon Valley, what to expect at this weekend's Barcamp Des Moines, updates on the Startup America Challenge (have you registered your startup, yet? Why not? It's easy) and what's next for Silicon Sixth Avenue in Des Moines.   While watching the show, feel free to drop over to facebook.com/prairiecast and give us a like. Also, give us a rating in iTunes (audio or video), even if you prefer to watch the show here on Silicon Prairie News. It's cool - we won't tell anyone.   Next week on PrairieCast: Emma Peterson of Tikly and Sam DuRegger (back for week two!). PrairieCast is a live podcast, recorded weekly, where a group of entrepreneurs gather to discuss current issues in technology and business that relate to the startup community on the Silicon Prairie and is hosted by Andy Brudtkuhl of 48Web and Geoff Wood of Silicon Prairie News.

Three firsts in this week's episode: Sam DuRegger of Charming Beard Productions joins us as a guest, we celebrate a guest's birthday on the show, and the same guest makes a quick exit moments later (due to what turned out to be some first time pregnancy jitters - it happens to the best of us). It was a fun show and we discussed Scott Case's Startup America Challenge to the Silicon Prairie (and Andy Stoll's subsequent challenge to Louisiana), the newly minted Iowa Startup Alliance and the good folks in Kansas City participating in Global Entrepreneurship Week with another Kansas City Startup Weekend.
