How to design a podcast player
Monday, April 30, 2007 by Dave Winer.
Notes from today's *excellent* discussion.
It's listed as a panel, but I'm the only official panelist.
Our topic of dicussion is, officially, How to design a podcast player.
I wrote a piece about this, with three points, in February.
1. Self-contained, untethered synchronization, much the same way a Blackberry gets email.
2. Read-write, two-way, should be able to record and connect with a publishing system for automatic upload and feed production.
3. Must be a platform, that is, people other than the manufacturer can add apps.
After we discuss that, we'll talk about whatever people want to talk about.
Some more ideas...
1. Checkbox News.
2. Twitter as coral reef.
3. Spreadsheet calls over the Internet.
