When I find a trusted source, like Adam Curry, I choose to invest almost an hour a day, because I know what type of content I'm going to get. Now that there are 100's of podcasts, I find it overwhelming to think about sampling these new shows. With video it's going to be the same. > about bit torrent. > why be afraid of people downloading files off your computer? > making your computer the server is the answer. > what's the worry exactly? > I don't understand Bit Torrent and I don't want to open up my computer to the net.
