BlogNashville is a "three-day set of educational and informational sessions on blogging, May 5-7th, 2005." It's inspired by BloggerCon, and I'm sure it'll be great. Not sure if I can make it, there's talk of me making a quick trip to London for my 50th birthday (just three days before), but I will be there if at all possible.
Adam Howell:: "We can all be our own gurus." Amen.
A cartoon featuring Adam Curry and myself. Aruging, of course.
According to Tim Jarrett, Microsoft is doing something interesting and intuitive with OPML and MSN Spaces. Can't wait to check it out. I'm doing so much with OPML, it's hard to imagine this won't play an important role in the bootstrap.
There's a del.icio.us tag for Frontier.
Corporate Media News: Podcasting Comes of Age.
Reuters: "Clear Channel plans to make some of its live morning shows available for downloading, commonly known as podcasting."
Crooks and Liars: "Stewart brings humor to a humorless situation."
I've mirrored the clip from The Daily Show to help with the bandwidth.
Ground-breaking BBC article on commercialization of podcasting, with extensive quotes from Adam Curry and myself, and not surprisingly, we disagree. Adam says podcasting will kill radio. Nahhh. It'll become radio and vice versa. Airwaves are just another method of distribution. Same with satellites. What will change is who's talking and who's listening. Now the conversation will flow in all directions, with broadcasters listening to people they used to think of as "audience." Blogs changed the architecture of written-word-journalism in the same way. The BBC did miss that I did the early podcasts that were the inspiration for Curry and others, and continue to podcast, so it's not as if I'm on the sidelines, I'm in there, putting my ideas out, and helping inspire others to do the same.
Christopher Baus: "Scoble tries to make a point, and Cory's response is to interrupt him with an eloquent, 'tough shit.'"
Next Friday, a week from today, marks the end of the 8th year of Scripting News, started on April 1, 1997. A month and a day later, I turn 50. Oy!
