Testing Pownce public downloads

Thursday, May 08, 2008 by Dave Winer.

A picture named pounce.jpgI just uploaded a song I recorded on Tuesday to Pownce. After two tries, it worked. You have to be logged in to download the song but anyone can play it. Hmmm. That removes one potential application I had in mind, Pownce as a podcast-serving platform. Permalink to this paragraph

Here's a screen shot of the post. Permalink to this paragraph

Anyone should be able to listen to the song even if they're not a member of Pownce. Permalink to this paragraph

Update: Sometime after it was uploaded it stopped working, people were unable to download the song. Obviously there are still some glitches to work out.  Permalink to this paragraph
