This brief BONUS episode is one to celebrate the second annual INTERNATIONAL PODCAST DAY — but it is also to reflect and ask the question about expansion of the celebration to encompass ALL New Media and/or ALL Content Creation.
Many of the podcasters today are not just podcasting alone — many are screencasting, blogging, videocasting, YouTube-ing, authoring, scoping, blabbing, etc.
The question discussed draws an analogy from 2005 of the original Portable Media Expo of the desire for a small, closed community limited to one form of content creation and distribution — i.e., podcasting. We can relate that with the opposite desire to EXPAND the celebration and community to include the other forms of content creation and distribution in the NEW MEDIA space — i.e., New Media Expo or NMX.
This reflection tries to address the reality that many podcasters are now expanding into these other forms of New Media and they are increasing their skills and making more value of their “toolkit” that they can offer to customers and clients, as well as to the New Media Community.
In any case, we wish everyone in the New Media Community a Happy International Podcast Day 2015!
