Question from Ricky

Ricky calls in and asks us how to start a podcast at a low cost.
We talk about the different ways you can start a podcast.
• Libsyn, Blubrry, Archive.org and Web Hosting
• Microphones – USB Headset Mic vs ATI2100
• Condenser vs Dynamic Microphones
• And more…

Blogger and Google Plus comments can now be linked.

• Andrew has been testing the new G+ / Blogger comment integration and it is pretty cool.
• You can start a free Blogger blog and write a post and share it to Google + and all the comments will appear in both G+ and Blogger.
• Circle Rules still apply so you can leave a comment that is only visible to circles that you share it too.
The Law has to catch up with Social Media
• Brian Burke is trying to unmask the people who accused him of having an affair. 18 aliases were named in the case.
• We talk about whether people should be hiding behind usernames that aren’t tied to their identity on Social Media.
• Bonnie brings up an example about two families that were thrown in jail over false accusations of sexual abuse. It was later determined to be completely false.
• Maike brings up the Stanford University experiment where regular people can become abusive if put in positions of power.
If you upload pictures to Social Media sites in the UK you don’t own them anymore.
• New legislation in the UK means all your Instagram pics can be used by anyone unless it is clearly marked.
• We talk about who owns the rights to your images.
• If you buy an image it is only for your use, not your clients use, etc.
• Sanj said if it is a personal blog it isn’t as big a deal. But if it is your business site make sure you have a license.
