The more things change, the more things stay the same, and the snake continues to eat its tail.
Dave Slusher expressed a certain disgruntlement with KYOURadio, a commercial venture that would air podcasts produced by amateurs over the contentional radio spectrum. I wonder how he would react to the news that PodFather Adam Curry is poised to do precisely the same thing:
Mr. Curry will help choose material for “Adam Curry’s PodShow” from some of the thousands of amateur shows produced in basements, living rooms and dormitories. Sirius subscribers, who pay $12.95 a month for the service, can listen to the show on channel 148, “Talk Central.”
More and more, the new revolutionary medium seems to be led by those who are intent on just rebuilding the same media over and over again. In Adam’s case, even the face is the same.
