I need to remember that


Chris Pirillo’s summary of CES got me smiling:

If you want to get attention, carry around a camera on some kind of tripod – everybody will stop you every five seconds. “Who are you? Where are you from? Can I show you something?” I never knew it was so easy.

Hmmm. So a camera is better than a mic?

But, as I wrote on Corante: It is fine that you have all those players out there, but where the hell are all the things which us podcasters are interested in aka machines which can record??

Additional link via Winer: BitTorrent for CES keynotes. Good idea!

    You mean minidiscs?

    Minidisc with direct upload via USB 2.0 perhaps.

  3. Oh No, not Minidisc….talk about clapped out, unreliable 80’s technology. Mind you, I think the flash recorders are all going in the wrong direction. Lets say you’ve just been granted an interview with the most important person you can think of. They agree to talk for 15 minutes. You’re going to record that on an i-river dangling from your neck? Podcasting without proper equipment is going to collapse…….press button one to record, press button two to post.

    Jonathon, I’l lcall you on the minidisc thing, because in two years of podcasting and capturing interviews my Minidisc has stuttered on meonce, and not lost any interview material. It’s robust, it’s cheap, it’s easily replaceable and it perfroms the job it was designed to do wonderfully. There’s a reason That most BBC Radio reporters still use minidisc as well.

  5. I’m planning on getting you this for your birthday Nicole:


    Only kidding ;) … but if I could afford it I might get myself one!
