That Sounds Just Like David Weinberger!?!

We're (Greg Elin, Jerry Michalski and me) sitting here working and listening to Chris Lydon's new show.. streaming live now, called Open Source. The inaugeral show has David Weinberger (Chris introduced him as "blog philosopher"), Dave Winer ("father of RSS") and Doc Searls, ("of Santa Barbara").

What are the social values of this new world (Lydon)
It's that we get to say whatever we want.. we get to connect to each other.. when I was on vacation recently, there was a poor internet connection, and I felt cut off.... (Weinberger)
Does that mean that your addicted? (Lydon)

I know just how David feels.

I just IM'd Doc and asked "if we IM you code words.. will you weave them into sentences on the live broadcast?"

Okay, now we're being pills. Getting off IM.

Good show... Oh, Dave Winer is getting introduced.

There is a thread that connects all these things together.. blogging, podcasting, etc.. (now he's comparing RSS to sushi boats..) where stuff comes down as it's published.. it's called 'disintermediated' (Winer)

Greg just IM'd Doc and said he would pay him $10 to mention his name online.. and I offered $15 and Jerry offered $20.

We just made an IRC here: #radioopensource

They are saying things bloggers have known for years.. we are expressing ourselves, we are talking and connecting, we are making things, disagreeing and that's good, participating, supplying for our own demands, telling stories.

In at least one of the prebroadcast pilot shows, Brendan (formerly of PRX but now works for the show) was monitoring and taking comments from an IRC channel. I wonder if in future shows they'll announce an IRC channel. has a podcast feed and MP3s of the shows and the three prebroadcast pilot episodes.
