Every week, I descend to my basement studio here in my house.
(Some have commented that they would be sad if my white brick wall changed with some venue changes in the future, even. ) I fire up our multi-computer studio setup that combines the use of Telestream Wirecast, Audacity, Youtube Live, and Google Hangout to bring together enthusiasts and interview subjects int he worlds of technology and professional wrestling. On a normal night, I’m having conversations with people from New York and Texas without even thinking about the great distance between us.
“The world is at our finger tips. We can evoke emotion and start revolutions. We can connect across continents or broadcast around town. We made the world smaller. Now what world will we make from our basements next.”
That was something I wrote on Instagram with the included picture. There are people doing even more with less. Periscope is being used to circumvent actual government censorship. We are putting people in the middle of rallies to send a message to legislators with (relatively) cheap 360 degree hardware. I loved Podcasting because it was a way for me to express myself without limitations. And all of this has made the world smaller so we can do something bigger.
