Link: Podcasting Is Not the Next Mass Medium.
Opinion: Independent voices will fade away because it is hard to be original and interesting over time, and major media outlets will be the big fish in this small pond.
The same could be said for blogging, and yet a few years into the blogging phenomena, we still have a huge range of varied and interesting bloggers. Sure, some have faded away – but there’s been thousands more stepping into the breach to replace them. The same is likely to be true for podcasting.

So, Apple has released their dev kits for OS X on Intel hardware and I was lucky enough to be the recepient of one. I took a disk image off of this badboy and loaded it onto my tablet. It booted but unfortunately the tablet’s screen didn’t work. I tried booting with an external monitor and… it actually worked. Having configured linux in the past to recognize the wacom digitizer I set to work on getting it up in OS X. This proved none too difficult as the tablet essentially just has a serial port to which the digitizer is connected. The standard wacom drivers for OSX worked fine once I configured it for this port.
Now that’s fun hacking
