MORE THAN THREE years of podcasts lie dormant on my removeable hard drive and shifting them to DVD will free up needed space. I've listened to some early podcasts done by people without mics. They simply talked at their computers and uploaded the noise. I've listened to Adam Curry for more than a year before Podshow was born and now listen to people who think Podshow isn't the right channel. Dave Winer thinks "we don't need a record industry-like advertising agency in the middle of PodcastLand. It's not a good fit." Marc Hunter thinks the advertising model sucks the life out of independent podcasting. Winer believes "podcasting is much less rulable, it doesn't need a central entity like the one (Ron) Bloom envisioned, or Odeo, or even Apple." Winer has offered some teasers about what he believes lies on the horizon but I can't figure out his main point, even after listening to Morning Coffee Notes. He promises more information today (Thursday 22 Feb 07), perhaps during the public radio conference he's attending. I'm interested in where he's taking the idea.
