ex machina

i haven't made up my mind about the proposed fees for webcasts. while it's certainly not good news for businesses like live365, it's not completely devastating for "microbroadcasters". if i pull out my trusty calculator, i can see that if you're a "pop" microbroadcaster you'll play around 14 songs an hour. according to the "per use" fee structure for commercial webcasters, this translates to around 2 cents per hour per listener and for a non-commercial webcaster you'll have to anty up 7 tenths of a cent per hour per listener. even if you assume that most microbroadcasters are somehow deemed to fit into the "commercial" category and can somehow muster a thousand listeners per broadcast, then you're talking $20 per hour, which is not nothing, but isn't a deal killer either - if you're running a weekly show. then again, if you get more than a thousand listeners and you want to run a nightly show then the costs begin to skyrocket. hmmm. i guess i'll have to let the dust settle a bit before i commence with a nightly webcast.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
