In the early days of podcasting, Adam Curry (white male) and I (white male) would talk about how advertising would change when users had choice. We're already living in that age, with TiVO (who just did a deal with Comcast today, bravo) people can decide which ads they want to watch. But there's a story that goes with this. Please read.
Paul Boutin: Newsmashing. White male.
Trudy Schuett, a white female, sides with the judge in the Apple case.
Mary Jo Foley, white female: "The first beta of IE 7.0 isn't expected for a few more months. But information on Microsoft's security, standards and interface plans are trickling out now."
Steve Gillmor, a white male, reports from the Etech conference.
Tony Gentile, a white male, weighs in the Issue Of The Day.
Building on what Tony said, I wish women would pick up some of the load and write about new stuff that interests Scripting News readers. I feel victimized by having to always point to men. We do all the work and they do all the complaining. Women, how about doing your fair share, i.e. half, of the work? What a trip. We're doing most of the work and they've got us feeling guilty. Heh. What else is new?
The question of the hour -- what is Open Search?
Danny Sullivan yet another white male, weighs in on Open Search.
Podfeeder is an "online service for sharing podcast feeds."
Apparently Nostradamus predicted white male blogging.
Keith Jenkins (black male): "Oh boy, I think we found the hot button."
Like Steve Eley (male, race unknown), I'm interested in knowing what the various podcasting companies are planning. If you've seen a demo, or otherwise know what they're doing, please post a comment.
Evan Williams (white male) from Odeo will be presenting on Thursday at 1:45PM Pacific at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology conference in San Diego. We should get reports from bloggers who are there. I was expecting to find out what it was after the TED conference, where they did a similar demo, but as far as I could tell there were no reports from bloggers. It'd be nice to have at least a vague idea of what Odeo sees as the community-building business opportunity in podcasting.
I love Diane Rehm, a white female. Her guest, a male (I'm guessing he's white) compliments one of her listeners, a male (can't tell his race because he sent an email). She says "Of course he's smart, all our listeners are smart!" That's how I can tell she's smart. If she had stupid listeners what would that say about her?
I am a white male. Here are some pictures I uploaded to Flickr to familiarize myself with the service. It was very easy to use.
I'm listening to Jay Rosen on the Diane Rehm show. Jay is a white male, Ms Rehm is a white female. The other two guests are white males. I sent in an email question for Jay. "Aren't the former 'sources' now going direct, and routing around the media? Why put up with an inaccurate filter and soundbites, when you can make your point directly and fully."
Danny Sullivan, WM, on AutoLink, insists on an opt-out.
White male Rafe Colburn explains why interface design is hard.
Tim Jarrett is also a white male. "My photos are too important a part of my site for me to outsource them, and so far I havenít seen enough benefit from the social aspects of the service to outweigh the shortcomings of being dependent on Yet Another Blog Support Service."
Jeff Jarvis is a white male. I appreciate what he says. My whole life I've been told I had it easier because I am a white male, but somehow, it hasn't felt all that easy.
On this day six years ago Netscape unveiled their feed reader, my.netscape.com, and a format named RSS.
BBC report on the "Bloggies" -- congrats to all the winners.
On March 3 I started a Yahoo Group to receive notices of new podcasts posted to audio.weblogs.com. All was good for the first few days, then Yahoo started bouncing the posts, saying they had disabled my mail address, dave at scripting dot com, because I supposedly had an "auto responder" set up. I don't have an auto-responder set up, if you get a response from that mail address, it comes from me personally. Nothing "auto" about it.
However, I assume what they mean is that they don't like the program that was posting mails to the podcast-news list, which was established for exactly that purpose. Okay I'll stop doing it, if you insist, but please can you re-enable my mail address? I use that mail to participate in a bunch of communities on Yahoo Groups. It took me the longest time to connect the mail outage to the problem with this one mail list. Anyway, I have no idea how to contact Yahoo support, or even if they provide support, so this'll have to do for now.
