The March issue of Wired is out, themed "The End of Radio." Unlike the Los Angeles Times, Wired knows better than to take on such a theme without discussing podcasting. Adam Curry Wants to Make You an iPod Radio Star: "The podcasting scene is reminiscent of the early, heady days of blogging, circa 2001, a time before Wonkette made the cover of The New York Times Magazine. Like bloggers in the good old days, podcasters are obsessively internecine and gloriously, honestly unprofessional."
[Update:] Oops, meant to also highlight this exciting bit of news: "Ourmedia (ourmedia.org), a grassroots media project backed by the Internet Archive, will provide free podcasting tools and permanent hosting for podcasts beginning in mid-2005."
