After reading blogs on everything from peoples daily lives to cool technologies, I decided to start my own blog. Fair warning though, all I really talk about here is webcasts, especially webcasts for developers. What’s a webcast you say? TechWeb (http://www.techweb.com/encyclopedia) defines a webcast as:
(1) To send live audio or video programming over the Web. It is the Internet counterpart to traditional radio and TV broadcasting.
(2) To send selected Web-based information (text, graphics, audio, video, etc.) to Internet users based on individual requirements.
In my humble opinion, webcasts are more than that. While I think blogging is cool, I think webcasting are the next killer app of our century. I think webcasts are going to redefine how we work, find information, attend schools, and generally communicate with each other. I think it can change our school systems to make teachers rock stars, but that’s a whole story by itself. You’re going to see a lot of cool things around webcasts and real time collaboration in the next few years. Want to see how Microsoft is using webcasts? Come check out
