I hereby announce that I am launching a new site called, EgoNetCast. [Editor's note: It will be under construction for some time. Right now you could read about the Aviator template on the Squarespace platform.] I will cover all things related to new media, especially podcasting (internet radio). I want to give kudos to Leo Laporte for coining the term netcast. Which name do you prefer, "portable on demand (broad)cast" or (inter)net (broad)cast?
A little background on my interest in radio and podcasting:
I have been a supporter of free radio for a long time, starting out in the late 80's, fighting the radio monopoly in Sweden. I listened to the Swedish Enterprise Association's music radio and how they broadcasted news from Voice of America in the middle of the night. I also tuned into the same wavelength as 208 Radio Luxembourg.
I have been called "Skavlan on the Net" by Tomas Gedda, Fundraising Manager, Fundraising Foundation for The Queen Silvia Children's Hospital when I did pro bono social media work for his organization. Stefan Engeseth of Detective Marketing is describing me as a "blogger and social media evangelist."
Maybe I can become the new "Maverick of Radio"? ;)
The site will include stuff about:
- free radio history and "pirate" radio, e.g., Radio Nord
- the talk radio phenomena
- podcasting tips & tricks
- interviews with fellow netcasters
- calendar with events and special shows
- new media news
What would you like to find on my new site?
As an ending (musical) note, here is Radio Ga Ga by Queen:
