PODCAST NATION: The revolution may not be televised, but it will
be available online, according to the folks from the Santa Barbara
Independent Media Center. In a sparsely attended event at Santa
Barbara Public Library’s Faulkner Gallery, folks from the media
center and various other new media converts gave a crash course in
podcasting and its implications for the future of information
consumption. A grassroots, commercial-free method of sharing video
and audio files with the masses on the Internet, podcasting urges
users to kill their TV – thus saving democracy. Featured at Monday
night’s meeting was 1970s counterculture media legend Howie
Samuelson. A true pirate of the broadcast media, Samuelson touted
the potential of podcasting as a means of empowering the people and
revealing truths that mainstream media often ignore.
