Dave has been a system administrator for 24 years and has been building RSS aggregation software for about 15 years. He worked with Adam Curry to build a product called the Freedom Controller, which is used as the shownotes/research platform for the No Agenda podcast and a few others.
Recently Dave has been working Adam to build PodcastIndex.org. A new podcast indexing service that empowers podcasters, app creators, developers and listeners to engage in value for value exchanges. Podcast Index harnesses the power of the Bitcoin Lightning Network to allow for micro payments and split payments, royalties, digital rights payments and more.
In doing so the technology and apps built on it empower and protect free speech. Leaving the economics to exist between producers in consumers rather than though investors, sponsors, etc.
Dave joins me to discuss the origins of the Podcast Index project, how it combats cancel culture, the role bitcoin and lightning plays in things, empowering developers and ending the plague of “pathological sameness” that has infected podcast technology for the past 15 years.
