CTD for November 27, 2005

In the now classic Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) feeling trapped in “this crummy little town” has his world crash down around him. In Martini’s bar, he talks to God praying to please “show me the way.”

Most of us may not have seen how God resolved George’s dilemma if not for a copyright accident.

You may know the story of why this five-times-nominated (but never won while fading in to obscurity) for an Academy Award movie but if not, listen to this week’s podcast and how the story of It’s a Wonderful Life is an allegory for the current situation we all face with stale copyright laws, a remix culture, and the enabling tools combining to accelerate the demand for new ways of thinking about content and its protection.

Also listen to the segment “The Radar Screen” which covers topics that hit Steve Borsch’s radar screen this past week.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I’d seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never ‘discovered’ by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
