I just came across the blog at Ibiblio.com after checking out Lyceum, which is an great project I will likely be writing about soon.

[A] promising indicator of the success of podcasting is its comparison to... The DVD.

My friend Jake from the Detroit Creative Group and I are planning on putting together a podcast where we discuss topics relevant to digital creatives (not just internet stuff, no sir) and interview these creative individuals and the people that develop the applications we use and run the organisations that support these industries.
The $64,000 question is: What does one name such a show?
The world may never know....
