Tired of wondering if your Boostagram went through?
Wonder no more.

I don't think there is a fundamental disagreement regarding ads, openness, and a free and open index.
I do have a visceral reaction every time you refer to people as nutcases, freaks, and crazies. Who decides who is a nutcase, a freak, or a crazy?
My reaction is a direct result of being an American that is almost 55 years old. I remember when we were more free.
I'm not anti-ads. Ads have their place. Pursuit of ad revenue though has a tendency to homogenize content. I don't want that as a consumer of the medium.
I guess it's my American perspective that believes labeling some as "nutcases" is as equally unproductive as being anti-ad.
There have been a lot of credentialed people over the last 1.5 years labeled nutcases, cancelled, and de-platformed. Cancelling is real and shouldn't be ignored as a problem.
@phoneboy They don't seem to be using it now. I had a YouTube video taken down. I muted the offending audio but kept my transcript. The video is still up!
I realize that. But, I think the contrast in the focus between Adam and James are two different directions.
Adam's might take longer for adoption but keep the ecosystem more robust and open.
Jame's might make adoption quicker but come at the expense of independence.
Focus on ads may create consolidation to control the money and that will be a negative for the namespace.
Money will then drive the tech rather than the tech driving the money.
I'm a normal person. I watch this space and experiment on my own as an enthusiast of Podcasting.
All advertising isn't evil and it's fine to use namespace features to enhance advertising.
But, better advertising cannot be the goal. It will poison the well for independent podcasters. The fringe independent podcasters is what makes this medium robust. Legacy media is boring because of ads.
Podcasting should be for all not just the ad friendly.
@Meremortals I'm glad you repeated the message here. I didn't receive the boostagram. I went off into the blackhole of the Internet!
