Last night I did a marathon two hour livestream with @taskmaster4450 and @jongolson talking all about Podping and Hive. It was epic. I played a few clips from some other podcasts, that didn’t work out so well as I can hear now on playback but I’ll put links to the real clips below. You can watch the video on 3speak or listen to the audio either on their podcast Cryptomaniacs or here.
While we were talking I received a number of big votes on the funding proposal I have on the DHR for which I’m hugely grateful. Those put me passed the return proposal and a few minutes after the end, another one of the whales tipped me above the DHF buy back so the Podping proposal is now funded. Feel free to vote on it if you still haven’t.
The point of the funding proposal is not just about money: I’ve detailed what I’m going to do with that and almost all of it is staying on Hive and much of it will be powered up. The other thing it does is showcase to a non Hive audience of developers and influential people in the Podcast industry, that Hive supports this project and that is hugely valuable.
Adam Curry points out that Advertising IS Censorship. The only way to get uncensored content you want is to directly support the content creators who are making it. That’s what Podcasting 2.0 is all about and really, when it manages to decentralise the transfer of value from listeners (or producers) to the content creators, it will have become Podcasting 3.0.
