Will podcasting save BitTorrent?

A bit of a tiff broke out at Gnomedex when Dave Winer challenged Adam Curry to use BitTorrent as a means of distributing his podcast, “Daily Source Code,” and thus solve his bandwidth problems. Curry evidently resisted, noting that BitTorrent is viewed by many as a vehicle for the illegal distribution of large copyrighted files, notably movies. But BitTorrent itself isn’t illegal, and Winer noted that Curry’s use of it would be non-infringing.

The value of social tagging

If you’re looking for examples of how social tagging can provide real value, take a look at the Gnomedex2005 tag at Technorati. Attendees of Chris Pirillo’s recently-concluded tech conference agreed to tag their blog posts about the session making it easy for anyone to keep track of all the various posts just by searching the tag at Technorati.

From hotel rooms on Mondays and Thursdays, after getting up at 4:30 a.m., I Skype Neville at 6 a.m., wrap up the recording by 7 a.m., handle the edits and uploads by 7:50 a.m., and am downstairs for the meeting or workshop by 8. Usually there’s a group dinner or some other event… Read More »
