KPIG announced today that they will broadcast the final "Vote for Change" concert Monday night, beginning at 7:00 p.m. PDT. Don't know if they'll put it on their webcast.

I spoke to a group of Microsoft employees yesterday morning. How did I start the session out? By playing the opening bit of one of Adam Curry's podcasts. Why? Podcasting is inspiring. The local news channel, KOMO, is already podcasting. My boss, Lenn Pryor, hooked up with Phillip Torrone at Engadget and just posted another podcast.

I love that guys all over the world, like Dave Slusher, who podcasts "Evil Genius Chronicles" can play around with audio now on a world-wide scale. . .

Yeah, it's only a three-week old product cycle.  [Scobleizer: Microsoft Geek Blogger]

And I submit that if something is fun, and people enjoye doing it, contributing to it, and using it, it will succeed. Podcasting works because of the automatic element: selected podcasts are pulled down and pushed to my iPod with nearly zero effort on my part.

Now, the big issue is going to be, when do I find time to listen to all this stuff? How do I sample a group of podcasts for interesting content, like I do with my news aggregator: I can scan all the posts and only read the ones that interest me. Visual scanning is pretty efficient. How are we going to do that with audio?

John Lennon would have been 64 today. Wow.

When he's 64. David Pescovitz: Happy Birthday. We miss you. [Boing Boing]
