Scripting News for 4/1/2006

NY Times: “The transformation of American politics by the Internet is accelerating with the approach of the 2006 Congressional and 2008 White House elections, producing far-reaching changes in the way campaigns approach advertising, fund-raising, mobilizing supporters and even the spreading of negative information.” 

Eric Rice says Podshow is “Old Media.” For what it’s worth, I’d like to see their artist agreement and judge for myself if they’re doing anything new or if it’s the same model that the record industry uses. Is there a copy online somewhere? 

Podcheck Review has some of the details, but not the actual contract. 

Amyloo thinks their model is more like broadcast rep firms.  

Nick Denton is looking for a couple of MT devs in NYC.  


Today is April Fool’s Day, so look out for some tricks.

It’s also the 30th birthday of Apple Computer.

And the 9th birthday of this weblog.

And the 18th birthday of Frontier (the technology behind the OPML Editor).

Frontier, if it were a person, could vote in U.S. elections. I have no doubt who it would vote against, if given a choice. šŸ™‚

Thus begins the 10th year of Scripting News.


It’s reassuring to know, after all these years, I’m still a hypocrite. šŸ™‚

  2. I don’t think the Podshow contract is in text form anywhere. Although I suppose someone will use one of those podcast-to-text services on the KATG episode where they read it out.

    From what they said, it did sound just like a recording industry contract.


  3. Check out the following podcast where they discuss the podshow contract.
