Listening right now. I love the idea of taking calls during the show. Do you have the ability to screen or put people on hold? Is the system controlled by desktop software or is entirely phone-based?

We can run it just like a radio call-in show. Callers are muted until we click a button to bring them in. I think we can have up to 12 simultaneous people on. Steve G. runs the board. TalkShoe has pretty awful software and UI site design. The actual calls are handled by a piece of software that you download and connect with. It's free -- you should sign up and check it out.

Can you provide mirrors of the the mp3s in the future? The TalkShoe server is really really slow (25 minutes to download 19MB slow). I was looking forward to listening to this episode, but I'm on my way out the door and I can't wait 20 minutes for TalkShoe to get their act together.

Yea, the sound quality was sketchy at times.

A few notes on the topics:

- The issues of moving ones identity has been around for a few years and there are several companies that have solutions that are active. Here's a talk from one Identity company, Sxip, at Web 2.0 in 1995:

We also had some discussion on Identity at the Video Vertigo meeting after Vloggercon 2006. Some social web companies that use Identity management are People Aggregator (look at the authentication layer):

and Zoomr Photo Sharing:

The issues I notice come up around centralized identity is what if a) a hacker breaks in, they have a wealth of information to use or b) the U.S. government subpeona the identity or covertly requests it. By having identity spread out as it currently is, the failure of hacker or U.S. government intrustion is minimized.

- does not encode or re-encode the flash movies they display. They link to the flash file on and and superimpose their branding and advertising.

Look forward to future podcasts. Find them very engaging for my interests. ;)

Enjoyed your program this evening. I thought you might want to consider noting the sites your are discussing a little bit better for those who might be new to video blogging. For example, you reference names like "Amanda" or sites like "jetset" but many listeners might need a reminder where she is now and that you are talking There are a few aspects to the conversation style podcast that leave less informed listeners with more questions than answers.

Personally speaking, I click in though talkshoe because I wanted to learn a little more about "how to" use videos online better. Nevertheless, listening I was able to grab a few morsels. Thanks. :-)
