  3. And who makes the audio tours? Some Big Official Smart Media Company or, like everyday people?

    Congratulations, Chris! You have just provided the correct, predictable textbook all-techies-do-this-trolly-kinda snark to question #17!

    “[inser name of something here] isn’t new, it’s been around since [insert obviously longer period of time longer than current market readiness]. What about [insert examples that are obvious here] ?

    I’ll bet we’ll see at least four comments here dissing podcasting cuz podcasting isn’t latex gloss paint.

    “[Insert name of something here] is new, it’s the new new thing, the new paradigm shift, the long-tail, the Singularity progressive-enhancement grassroots Cluetrain power-ride [insert the usual statement of how everyone else just doesn't get it]. Why of all my Sillycon Valley friends are doing this (and holding parties), jump aboard the new [insert paragraphs and paragraphs of Web 2.0 buzzwords]. [Insert more statements of how everyone else just doesn't get it].

    When I first started this there were only [insert some random number] and now, yes now, there are [insert some random eyeballs'ish number]. It’s a global revolution I tell you. Out with old, in with the new new new. What about [insert examples that are obvious here]? Why this and that [insert techonology trend that took off] was once like this new trend, so get in on the ground floor baby, ground floor. [Insert yet more statements of how everyone else just doesn't get it].

    I don’t care about [insert low marketshare number], I care about the quality of the people listening [insert name-drops serious]. But now that it’s getting some backing [insert good marketshare number] this only proves that I was right all along. Nah nah nah.

  7. Why Some Big Official Smart Media Company…vetted by Historians and Experts, Scripted for Time, Content and Interest-levels. You’d rather the endless rambling, cracking muffled-audio podcast of some geek who never hardly leaves his LCD?
