Ready or not DMOZ is going to have a podcasting branch. Are they putting it in the right place? They're asking for comments. What are some of the other choices? And wouldn't it be great if we could share technology and have OPML be integrated in the DMOZ structure?
NPR does not "currently offer its programming for podcasting, but we are interested in your views on podcasting. If you would like to help, please complete this brief survey that will inform our efforts in this area."
Wes Felter: "It's always interesting to see the Mathematica demo get trotted out again."
Rebecca MacKinnon: "Reporters Without Borders has issued a press release today voicing alarm at 'the Chinese governmentís announced intention to close down all China-based websites and blogs that are not officially registered.'"
Garrick Van Buren: "How much would you pay for your accountant to leave a voicemail answering a question just before you ask it? Thatís how to make money podcasting."
The announcement is over at 2PM Eastern, now the bits the others don't have: 1. Apple is not going into the software business, their operating system will not run on other vendor's hardware. So you won't be running the Mac OS on Dell, HP or IBM, for example. and 2. While Windows is not explicitly supported, they won't do anything to prevent Windows from running on their hardware. Reported by Michael Gartenberg.
Today's reportage came to you live from Starbuck's (where the phone and wifi coverage are excellent).
When I have news, this is where it will go. Please comment.
I just got a call from a friend inside Moscone where the Apple announcement is about to begin. I should have a report here by about 1PM Eastern. And -- we're going to get an exclusive. Something that's not announced on stage.
Engadget: "United Airlines is planning to become the first domestic carrier to offer WiFi access on all of its flights."
Ready or not, Rush Limbaugh is podcasting.
People who have been listening to my podcasts have been getting little clues about some strange things about the upcoming outliner. For example, it's not just a desktop outliner, it does stuff over the Internet. Of course. What would be the point of having an editor whose native format is OPML and not have it natively push outlines up to the web? Duh. Anyway, so the first thing it asks you to do is to register with opml.org so you can have your hosting space set up for you. If you don't want to register, no problemmo, but we'll ask the next time you launch and the time after that, and the time after that. The point being this outliner is much more interesting if you join the community.
Wired: "If Apple has licensed QuickTransit for an Intel-powered Mac, all current applications should just work, no user or developer intervention required."
Scoble: "The entire industry is shaking because of Jobs' decision."
Steve and I recorded a Gillmor Daily yesterday that will never make the air, but there were some moments, as Steve recalls. "A lot of it was crap, but it was good crap."
