So, I played around with Youtube in order to record a blog post because (1) it would have been multiple long blog posts that I don’t have time to write at the moment and (2) why not? Here’s the post in the form of three videos that are really more audio than video since I do not do video editing.
These are not podcast quality or meant to be. As you’ll be able to tell from the first one, it was recorded in a car. I recorded them when and where I could. The audio isn’t bad, but you will hear other things in the background.
A lot of people complain about cable and talk about the coming golden age of the new media. I’ve said before I’m not sure it will be what people think, and I say that because we’ve been here before. We’ve done this before, and I think that ultimately, we’re going to repeat history.
This is broken into three parts to listen to in (fairly) easy chunks. The first part is a nostalgic history. The second part looks at where we are now. The last part looks at something I don’t see a lot of people discuss when the topic of the future of streaming comes up.
