Second wave

posted this on and tagged it with Anchor Microcast Microcasting The open web

I responded to a wave by Joel Comm on Anchor suggesting the name ”micro podcasting”. Here’s my response, both as an audio file and as text.

(This is part of my microcast feed so you can subscribe to it in your podcatcher of choice.)

Two thoughts on that:

  1. I’m with Adam and Erik, I prefer microcasting since it’s shorter and has been used ”in the wild” before Anchor.
  2. If a name alluding to podcasting should be used, Anchor needs to actually embrace the openness of podcasting. Each user account should have an RSS feed with the Waves so that it’s not locked down in Anchor and instead can be used in regular podcatchers as well.
