Scripting News for 4/9/2006

Essay: “You need a village to raise a child, and you need an Internet to fully develop an idea.” 

Clif Guy: “I like blogging much better than forums because they’re driven by the blogger’s creativity, writing ability, and personality.” 

Fred Wilson: “While big companies deliberate, small companies obliterate.” Amen. 

Richard MacManus and Marc Canter on the expanding footprint of Google Base.  

SF Chronicle: “Privacy advocates are raising concerns about Google Inc’s plans to cover San Francisco with free wireless Internet access, calling the company’s proposal to track users’ locations a potential gold mine of information for law enforcement and private litigators.” 

Lowell George 

For most of the music that I love you just have to imagine how great it is, we can’t listen to it together. Well, that’s not true of Little Feat, one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. There’s a generous sampling of Little Feat music at archive.org, all of it live, and some of it very very good. I’m listening to the set from Ultrasonic Studios, recorded in 1974. Zoom in on this MP3 of Two Trains. Oooooh.

Podcasts and Amazon S3 

I’m experimenting with S3 and large objects. Here’s a podcast I recorded in Amarillo, Texas. It’s pretty funny. But then I’m biased. :-)

Podcasting is what S3 is all about, of course.

I’m now going to try to upload all the MCNs.

Bonus: Holovaty is using S3 to store media files.

Now I gotta go to sleep. See y’all tomorrow!

Too much fun.

    Do you know if you’ll be paying for traffic of direct downloads (not using BiTorrent)?

    If so, then you’ll need a way to restrict those direct downloads because right now they’re allowed as I can see. Otherwise this kind of hosting can cost you fortune.
