Moving the social media money conversation forward

If you follow the Canadian Podcast Buffet, you know that Bob Goyetche and I have gone out of our way to prevent discussions of money on the show since it began.  Over the last few months, though, we’ve allowed that topic to trickle in and recently, we promoted what we’ve been calling the Money Episode.  […]

PodPress is STILL a going concern

I’ve been one of the many voices expressing concern about the longevity of the PodPress, the incredible podcasting plugin many of us WordPress users have adopted because of its powerful features and ease of use. It’s been easy to worry about the plugin.  Some time has past since the last update (code or even news […]

The debate on ‘niche’

A few weeks ago, Katherine Matthews put up a post in which she decried the use of the term ‘niche’ and how it reflects badly on podcasting (see ding, dong, the niche is dead).  Some raved about her thoughts.  John Meadows suggested her post should form a manifesto of podcasting. I finally caught up with […]

Funny story about the Portland Podcasting group

So, remember how I blogged, yesterday, about the 98-person waiting list for a podcast meetup group in Portland, Oregon? Funny story. I thought it was odd that everyone on the waiting list had joined on the same day, September 24, 2008; the day before I became aware of the list.  Odd?  Yes.  Though not odd […]

Portland, Oregon podcasters unite!

I’m in Portland to meet with a client and deliver a presentation at a conference this weekend.  When I woke up this morning, I discovered and email from Andrea pointing out that there are 98 people on the Portland Podcasting waiting list.  So, I created the Portland Podcasting and New Media group on meetup.com this […]

Why podcast your conference?

Why podcast your conference?

I get the strangest looks when I tell conference organizers that they should give their content away, for free, as podcasts on the Internet. Some of the looks are intrigue, most are horror. I suppose that each community is different. My experience with conferences that I have organized and those for which I have been […]

Slingshot

I listened to some old podcasts while reorganizing my home office, yesterday. When I say old, I mean episodes that were published so long ago, podcasters were still encouraging their listeners to register monthly votes at Podcast Alley and pin Frappr Maps. Yeah! That long ago. The amazing thing is that those services still exist. […]

The solution is out there

About a month ago, Charlie lamented that content licensing is still a bottleneck for Web 2.0 folks (Top Ten Reasons Why Web 2.0 Sucks). One of the reasons that podcasting shot to popularity the way it did is that it is not, nor should it be, mainstream media. Getting caught up in the inability to […]

How can I make money from podcasting?

I’m amazed at how often the question “how can I make money from podcasting?” comes up in podcasting circles – even when I introduce podcasting to people for the first time. If it’s not the first thought out of someone’s mouth, it’s one of the first. Among podcasters, the tendency is to want to make […]

An eye on 2007

Tod Maffin said that the problem with being a futurist is that people hold you to account when you “get it wrong”. So, I will say that this post is a combination of my (ahem) predictions and hopes for 2007. In no particular order… 1) Podcast and RSS distribution networks will become more influential They […]
