Audioblog for Sept 24, 2004

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the audioblog for September 24, 2004. I talk about a way in which the world of podcasting resembles that of Stephenson’s Diamond Age, the glamorous life of professional fiction writers, why excerpted RSS feeds still drive me nuts but NetNewsWire ameliorates that, and Doc Searls on self-forming markets.

Links mentioned in this episode:

  1. quick comment dave. that fact that you take the time to add the links that you mention in your audioblog is a very cool thing – hopefully to be copied by others soon. while i haven’t had time to listen to this program yet – i did see the doc link – and sucked down all 80mb so that it too will be ready to listen to.
    stay dry and out of harms way over the next few days too 🙂

  2. Mike, I’m glad you find that useful. After editing and assembling the actual entry, doing that for the announcement post is the second most time consuming part of this whole thing. If I work from memory I miss a lot of things, so I try to do at least a cursory relisten to make sure I didn’t skip lots of links. I also do that as a tweak to Maciej Ceglowski and his “manifesto.” Of course you aren’t going to speak aloud a lot of ungainly URLs full of tildes and slashes, but you really don’t have to. Use the audio for what it does well, use the text for the rest.

  3. got the tweak – nicely done…

    also, you once mentioned what a pain it is to say “w-w-w” – try switching to “dub-dub-dub” which can be compressed easier 😉
