NY Times editorial: The Promise of the First Amendment.
I have a question about IIS on Windows 2000 Server.
Re the post below, one of the two servers is up, not the one with unmetered bandwidth. But the MP3 of tonight's debate is recording, and I will upload it after the debate is over. Also, I have an email from Martin Nisenholtz at the NY Times, re the editorial above. I'll run that email with my blogger's point of view, tomorrow morning. I think this is a ripe moment in the relationship between professional and amateur journalists.
Join us on a trip through the mind of Ethan Zuckerman. It's a fascinating place! I live across the street from a containerized seaport. It's something else to see one of the huge frieght ships navigating Puget Sound, with thousands of containers. I'll take a picture of one for you, maybe later tonight. And when you drive in from the airport you drive through what seems a storage yard for millions of containers, all with Asian names on them, some in Asian scripts. Where I live it's impossible to miss that we're part of a global economy. The evidence is everywhere you look. Hey it's cool to collaborate with a Berkman colleague. Say hi to everyone for me Ethan. I miss you guys!! Tell them to check out podcasting, I think they'll love it.
Tod Maffin: "Following Eric Rice's idea of 'open-source promos,' I'm offering my time to produce a limited number of intros for podcasters. 100% free."
I was interviewed today on Minnesota Public Radio about podcasting. Yes, they're working on a podcast feed. They asked why is this growing so fast. I thought for a second and said: Blogs. A new idea can flow much faster now that we have mobilized word of mouth in a network of weblogs. It's all part of the same bootstrap. Blogs are used to inform people of the next blog-like thing. It's at times like this that I say: Bing!
I called Adam today on Skype and said "It's time to buy the new server." So we talked about it and agreed to buy two new servers. One to run more Web apps, and another as a pure bandwidth hog. It has 20Mbps unmetered. We can fill the pipe and pay nothing extra. Weeee-ohhh. We're betting on lots of growth in podcasting and want to make sure our infrastructure, which we're furiously developing, can grow to handle the demand. To test it out, I'm going to record an MP3 of tonight's debate, and I'll upload the MP3 as soon as possible. I'm also going to do a rush-study on BitTorrent. Looking for a good how-to.
The Public Radio Exchange is experimenting with podcasts.
5 years ago Edd Dumbill wrote a kind article about XML-RPC and UserLand. "What Userland opened was not the source to its servers or content management system, Frontier, but its ideas, protocols, and bandwidth." Exactly right. That was the philosophy. Now of course the source is open too.
Operation Truth is a "nonprofit, non-partisan organization whose goal is simple and straightforward: to support our troops and spread the truth about what conditions are like in Afghanistan and Iraq."
They're running an excellent ad on CNN, that answers the Swift Boat guys, without making ad hominem attacks on President Bush. It's about time.
Engadget: 92% of new hard drive-based MP3 players sold are iPods.
Ann Petigrew: "Secretary Rumsfeld and President Bush, you are responsible for the inaccurate intelligence assessments, inadequate troop strength, Iraqi prisoner abuses, inadequate logistical support for U.S. forces, and fraudulent contracting billing for the Iraq reconstruction."
Remember what Harry Truman said. "The President -- whoever he is -- has to decide. He can't pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That's his job."
Adam Curry: "We now have 7 people maintaining nodes."
Every time Bush says "He can run but he cannot hide," I think of Dale Gribble on King of the Hill. A chain smoker, conspiracy theorist. I swear they taught Dubya how to talk like Dale, who comes from the fictitious town of Arlen, TX. Believe it or not there's a Dale Gribble doll.
Scoble spots a $1900 tiny XP machine that does audio and video.
Chris Pirillo does a mini-conference in a podcast.
This blog has proof that Bush was wearing a receiver at the first debate.
I'm happy to see Morning Coffee Notes in the Pioneers section. I have very fond memories of the early days of podcasting. Last month.
