I’d lean more towards benevolent in terms of the adjective on the dictatorship, and therein lies the rub. How can the burden of sustainability be shifted to make the enterprise viable, without corrupting the culture.
Is edtechtalk somehow connected to the idea of shoutcasting?
I think it is. Indeed, audio streams are more accessible in areas where bandwidth is an issue, and I think an important attribute. Webcasting also allows for autonomy and flexibility in terms of “fee for services” as opportunities present.
Which brings us back to sustainability. I think that “server sponsorship” is something we need to explore, and believe the EdTechTalk brand is such that we’d not have to “sell the farm” to make it happen.
Thanks for the opportunity to comment Dave, and for all you and Jeff have done to make this conversation happen.
