Gigs upon = Gigs are automatically sucked down the second I post a show. A couple of t= houghts: 1. Let's encourage the BitTorrent folks to make BT easy, simple, = invisible, and integrated. That will do wonders to help distribution of a= ny rich media. 2. Find where the acceptable watershed is for compression. S= ize vs. Quality. 3. Don't name it zencasting. ;-) 4.

Maybe a podcast for videoblog technology/techniques? I think the reas= on we haven't been so slaughtered on bandwidth is that our audience is eac= h other. Steve Garfield from Steve Garfield dot com might say differently,= (steve, you media darling, you). Niche programming might help the matters= of bandwidth with podcasting/videocasting.
