iTunes 4.9 to Offer Podcast Support

Monday, May 23rd, 2005

Steve Jobs is promising support for free podcasts in the next release of iTunes. Especially interesting is this sentence: Apple will also release a tool that will allow any Podcast creator to easily upload their content to the company’s music store.

Thursday, May 19th, 2005

What used record store gives the most for Darla promo CDs? What’s the best t-shirt to wear to a Godspeed You Black Emperor show? Why is Spiderland better than Tweez?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2005

In a recent Wired interview, Adam Curry talks about his new Sirius program and the phenomenom of podcasting in general. Curry, as usual, overstates his ‘pioneering’ influence regarding podcasting, and again neglects to mention Dave Winer‘s key role in innovating the use of enclosures with RSS feeds. Another point that’s inexplicably absent from most articles [...]

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

Another BAD WORD: Using “architect” as a verb; that is, in place of something simple, like, say…”design.” Tim O’Reilly, thanks for reinventing English in order to waste syllables and coin another “repurposed” buzzword.

God Said

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

Nearly everyone I know claims to have heard your voice And every time they do, I know I should rejoice Because one day I’m sure you’ll break your silence And speak just to me But I feel like time’s running out And my heart, my heart is filling with doubt And god said I don’t [...]

Sometimes Market Research Can Be Stimulating, Trots!

Wednesday, May 4th, 2005

I’m not much into goatees, but… As tech prognostications go, it doesn’t get much better than this, especially if you geek out to the degree that I do about podcasting, satellite radio and cellphone/MP3 player/digital audio convergence.
