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:
- Neal Stephenson’s Diamond Age
- The Free Culture audiobook
- Poppy Z. Brite and her sad tale of fiscal woe (I loved her newest novel Liquor)
- Teresa Nielsen Hayden, Mark Evanier, and Kathryn Cramer – three people whose blogs I dropped because they excerpted their RSS feeds
- Doc Searls’ talk “The Independence Revolution: How Self-Forming Markets are Changing Business, Technology, and Everything Else” archived at iBiblio
