ive been saying it for 20 years. bit torrent was targeting for many reasons, but i feel like its mainly due to lack of central control. crypto, same thing. now podcasting will be the same.
they saw this shit coming and headed it off at the pass in order to corral everyone into the streaming platforms with central control and the capability to be memory-holed.
not to mention, when you stream, you own nothing and your happy. whos that sound like??
I don't understand what this means.
wasn't the distribution via podcasting already decentralized (and thus uncancellable) from the beginning? add torrents.
if this is about the money, until crypto is easier and safer for most people and less volatile, the revolution is a long ways off. it still seems like an open standard for money transfer without the blockchain intermediary would get us where we want to go faster.
As for volatility. I've taken interest in Cardano, it's token, ADA, is pretty stable (to the upset of many crypto bros). They have a project in the works called Hydra which will serve a similar role to lightning.
In order for a technology to be adopted by the masses it needs to be useable without understanding it.
It is interesting to see what's going on with Joe Rogan. The worst case would be if he quit Spotify and didn't return to podcasting.
@adam podcasting 2.0 is a reference implementation of truly decentralized media distribution network. Web3 should be more like podcasting 2.0.
