Curry and even Winer were talking about making podcasting big. Sure, they
may have had different ideas of where they wanted to take it but I look at
this as something that was long overdue and also, with many radio stations
getting into podcasting, Adam Curry had to make things happen.
As for shows that want to be part of podshow, heck go for it! Personally, I
agree with the comment of there are people who look at podcasting as a form
of new radio and another as a form of blogging.
I look at mine as both. More as an extension of my Website and I'm quite
happy by the way things are since I target a niche audience. For those who
want to gain more listeners and are going for the radio side of things, I
see podshow as a tool to get more listeners but seriously, if your content
sucks and you're not going to be innovative, your going to crash.
With Adam Curry and the Sirius deal, I see perhaps a podcast talk radio
channel where his network that he has promoted for many months probably
joining in. I see D&D, YR also capable of getting into satellite radio but
not sure if they would be hampered if there are rules if they were allowed
to podcast on XM, whereas in podcasting there really are not many rules.
Adam Curry's goal is to get more listeners and whether or not people like
it, the man has been in radio for decades, he knows what he's doing. With
podshow and of course, Sirius... Podcasting and satellite radio joining
forces will definitely get more listeners.
Of the 6,000+ podcasters out there though, really this should not be a big
deal. I would assume that a high majority of podcasters are comfortable
where they are at, doing what they do and not really caring if their podcast
is up to commercial standards or very large audiences listening in. There
are many who we have listened to, wanting big things to happen since they
started podcasting. Some who have podcasts and have a whatever
happens...happens attitude. But many who do it as a blog or a hobby and are
comfortable with a few thousand or several hundred listeners.
My feeling is if Adam Curry and friends make it happen, that is great! He's
been wanting to make things big for as long as I have listened to his show.
He's done a lot for podcasting and he has opened up the gates. Now, I see
other people out there with different niche podcasting, trying something
cool and making things happen. Whichever way these individuals take
podcasting, as long as they believe they can make it happen, then so be it,
go for it and I hope you all succeed!
- I think you are basically right. Satelite radio is a t-rex competing with the rats after the meteor hit. They are going extinct and they don t know why. MyMessage 80 of 80 , May 5, 2005View SourceI think you are basically right. Satelite radio is a t-rex competing
with the rats after the meteor hit. They are going extinct and they
don't know why. My guess is the switch to a podcast format will speed
up the process of switching to a decentralized network business model.
The difficulty I see on this site, is the large amount of posters who
are committed to a cheeter/Marxist/artist ideology - art for art's
sake and the artist who profits from their art is a "sell-out."
Charles Darwin based his theory of evolution by natural selection on
Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nation's, not Das Capitol, as some of you
The current Darwinian thinking treats art as a kind of peacock's tail,
meaning a display of sexual health. For the reader's go get The Mating
Mind: How sexual choice shaped the evolution of Human Nature, by
Geofrey Miller. For the watcher's, go rent A Beautiful Mind.
Yours in Darwin,
