Radio UserLand has a product manager
Yes!! I loved this product from the day it came out. This is why I continue to resubscribe and anti up my subscription fee every year.
Radio never moved much pass it's revolutionary blogging product entry point. It was quick and innovative out of the gate and somehow one day the innovation leadership it processed stopped and it became frozen in time. No matter, the product was what is was. It still contains features unavailable in other blogging authoring products. Users like myself stood with it, worked around it's limitations and waited for Userland to wake up one day and get their act together.
It's surely has been a while since we saw any real innovation in Radio. While Radio has stood still the blogging world has not and other products in some regards have passed it by. Steve has his work cut out for him to catch the competition. I as a original user of the product will stay with Radio as Steve sorts out it's short term and long term future.
I for one like to see the product finally embrace Multimedia. Multimedia was never really the product's game or strong point even though it's name is Radio. Lacking simple audio publishing features and being called Radio must have confused so many users and potential users.
Just allowing users the abililty to save MP3s on Userland servers would be a simple but huge breakthrough for the product. If you need to charge me more to put my MP3s on your servers, just say it. I can understand a fair audioblogging surcharge.
I often stated in the past that Radio was designed for text bloggers. I meant it and at present Radio still is. The problem is Radio just didn't make the task of blogging audio or video as easy as it was blogging text/html.
As far as I concerned, this time Steve/Userland needs to really put the Radio into Radio.
