msb-0202 "Mélange, a whole mess of stuff"

msb-0202 "Mélange, a whole mess of stuff"


Feedback comes first, so...

[whistling wind] None...

My mother's in the hospital so, unless I can get other podcasters involved (Herrad, Homer,) I'm going to either have to replay old shows or leave everybody hanging.

Let me know how you feel about it either way...

Some idiots keep trying to post spam messages on the blog and the podcast.

How dense do you have to be "not" to realize that you are on a moderated blog/podcast and that I'll never, never, never let that kind of crap on?

I guess that these people don't speak English. They certainly don't read it. (Then again, the comments came from Tokyo. It's probably just some disinterested kid working for minimum wage trying to fill blog comments. Tough luck kid... Now make like a bird and flock off.)

Oh and there was one idiot who I actually let post comment spam on the blog at msb-0195 and had fun exposing the comments' (il)logical fallacy and tearing through him (or her, the person who posted is extremely shy and has no profile on blogger, [meaning that its nothing more than offensive spam.])


Onto more entertaining topics.

I have just heard the most amazing, astonishing, astounding series of podcasts.

"The History of Electronic Music" [ ] is a podcast dedicated to, what else?, the history of electronic music and it is available on iTunes, for free.

Its the most incredible music by classical composers and artists from the begining and the middle of the twentieth century.

I am going to follow this series very closely because it is quite delicious.

I'm not going to even attempt to do more then tell you to "go and pick up the podcast" on iTunes. [ ].

Seriously. Its is great.

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

And I would apreciate if someone could write a review of this podcast on iTunes [ ] You can just select the link and, eventually, scroll down the iTunes page to "Customer Reviews"

According to an article [ ] in the New York Times, would have to come out 83 times to cover 80% of the people living on the globe.

Most of the thousands of other languages now face extinction at a rate that exceeds that of birds, mammals, fish or plants.

Well, I'd feel bad if I didn't know that people can speak more than one language.

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Some people never have to pay.

They contribute "content" to the show.

Other people/companies/corporations do have to pay.

They are getting a direct benefit from the existence of the show.

---- "Manhattan" by: "Alec Berlin"


I have been thinking of why should anyone care about the existence of this podgram?

I mean, I'd be doing it even if I was the only one listening.

Its fun to go through all the steps required to create it.

Its even more fun to go digging through the Podsafe Music Network (the PMN) looking for tunes.

That I happen to be able to keep a small, but growing, crowd of downloaders entertained is just a peachy-keen plus for me.

Why shouldn't we MSers have the chance to play on the net?

Because of the advertising model of this show, it's giving an opportunity to some people/companies/corporations who make stuff for us MSers to reach us MSers, without having to dilute their message into mere sound bites.

They can have their own content, regardless of medium, regardless of length, regardless of duration, delivered through podcasting, [content ] delivered to us, the MSers, when we want it and are receptive.



The people who are trying to sell stuff have to pay (but unlike traditional media, its sharply focused.)

For the rest of us...

The band plays on...
