I’m determined that, for the upcoming BloggerCon IV, we have webcasting that works. At previous events at best the webcasting worked intermittently. This time we have a couple of factors working in our favor. 1. CNET has excellent networking, so there shouldn’t be a problem getting a high-quality stream coming out of the site. 2. We’ve had a couple offers of financial sponsorship for the webcast, so we can spend at least a little money. Now, I only want to do audio, video is too high a hurdle. If we can get quality audio this time, we can try video next time. I don’t see any problem miking the room well enough so that at least the audio will be understandable for people tuning in over the net. Now, what software should we use? Looking for creative advice.
I went for my four-year post-op stress test and checkup today, and I’m pleased to report everything is fine, knock wood, praise Murphy, I am not a doctor (or a lawyer). No blockages, the bypasses are working fine. With any luck I should live for a few more years. :-)
One of the next projects for SYO, is an aggregated newest-first list of articles from the Top 100. Before you say that this isn’t new, that the old site had this feature, it’s true, it’s not new, but it is better. The old version was dynamic, this one is static, so it’s fast. And it scans every ten minutes, not every hour. And it uses the Top 100 as a reading list, so it automatically unsubs when a feed falls off the list. The previous version accumulated feeds. You can monitor the project, as it develops, through this page.
A couple of observations. 1. The top feeds seem to update more often than most others. 2. I’m finding new stuff to subscribe to in the Top 100. Some people say it’s all the same, but in my case that’s not true. There are quite a few top feeds that I’m not already subscribed to.
