The biggest problem with my inaugural podcast, to my mind, is that it was mostly just me talking. To help remedy that for future editions, I’d like to experiment with having sort of a community talkback edition or segment from time to time. Here’s the idea: I ask a question or try to provoke some thoughts; you respond in some audio format, and I incorporate relevant, reasonably well-done responses into a podcast that features the community much more heavily than it does me. This may not work out, but let’s give it a shot. The first question I’ll ask is why you think it makes better sense for Flock to be a browser rather than a set of extensions (if in fact you think that’s the case; if not, explain why not). If you’d like to participate, send to daryl at flock.com an email with the following parts:
- Subject: “podcast opinion 1”
- Your name as you’d like to have it read if I include your response (with pronunciation hints if they’re likely to be needed)
- Your web site if you’d like me to announce it with your answer
- Link to an mp3 of your response (I’d prefer this to your attaching the mp3 if you can manage it)
I propose not less than about 30 seconds and not more than maybe 2 minutes for responses. Your response becomes property of Flock, you’re not entitled to any compensation for it, and all that other legal mumbo jumbo. Here’s hoping five or six people will respond. If not, I guess this is a wash. I look forward to hearing what our community can come up with.
