Joi Ito points us to Dan Gilmor’s A Minute with Dan: Bad Behavior | Bayosphere. It really is a minute. A minute of audio, the idea being to tap into the emotional power of the human voice without adding a lot of time or technology constraints.
A quick definitional thought: podcast ≠ online audio. Online audio has been around a long time. What makes a podcast a podcast is that you subscribe to it. I’ve been the online subscription guy since 1991, so that’s a great thing. But earning a subscriber is difficult, and keeping one is harder still. Things like Dan’s minute are an interesting way around that.
