Googlezon: A possible vision of the future?
A guy I’ve connected with via my blog, Christian Long at Designshare, thought enough of our interactions to connect me up with a guy in the UK with whom I just talked for an hour.
DK at Mediasnackers runs a youth-centric new media group in Wales, UK. He and I covered dozens of subjects from podcasting, vodcasting, youth, participation, user generated media, creativity and too much more to list. It was a fabulous connection I’m convinced will only grow over time.
DK asked if I’d seen the “Epic…vision of the future” video. Nope…I hadn’t so he Skype-IM’ed me the link and I just watched it. I’d recommend you do too if you’re in the least bit interested in *one* possible scenario of a world rushing toward personalization of content, information, narrowcasting, every-blogger-as-editor and the feasibility of giving us what we might want vs. what we need.
It’s a bit bleak but worth a peek and is here.

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.
