Hi campers,

I feel bad for neglecting my videoblogging duties, as I'm part=
of that
whole podcasting phenom.
It's groundwork for the bigger picture: =
video. And I'm feeling first
hand the effects of bandwidth usage.

Now, gr=
anted I have gobs of personal bandwidth, yet THAT isn't enough.
Gigs upon =
Gigs are automatically sucked down the second I post a show.

A couple of t=
houghts:

1. Let's encourage the BitTorrent folks to make BT easy, simple, =

invisible, and integrated. That will do wonders to help distribution of
a=
ny rich media.
2. Find where the acceptable watershed is for compression. S=
ize vs.
Quality.
3. Don't name it zencasting. 😉
4. Streaming vs Download=
: is not a which-is-better argument. Both have
their places/uses. Like two=
seater convertibles and pickup trucks. Not
the same thing.

It's tons of =
fun. Maybe a podcast for videoblog technology/techniques?
I think the reas=
on we haven't been so slaughtered on bandwidth is that
our audience is eac=

might say differently,=
(steve, you media darling, you). Niche

Adam Curry however, has bigger problems. 🙂
