Ted Stevens: The Unintentional Podcaster
Senator Ted Stevens has made a total fool of himself while attempting to explain the Internet in the context of Net Neutrality. Granted, Stevens is old enough that there was no Internet in his childhood, adulthood, or golden years so it's understandable that he has no clue what that crazy Internet thing is all about. The sad thing is that Stevens is a opponent of Net Neutrality and will vote against it even though he clearly has no idea what he's talking about.

I've talked about my position on Net Neturality so I won't go into it yet again. Rather, the purpose of this post is to point out that anyone can become a podcaster without any intention to do so. Stevens' idiotic rambling (MP3 - a minute or so in) has been sent all over the planet and has garnered such a response that there are even T-Shirts with the phrase "It's a series of tubes" on them.

Now clearly a Senator expects to be recorded, but many of us may not. Portable recording devices are becoming smaller and more powerful so it's entirely possible to record any speaker, anywhere. I think a good rule of thumb is to assume that every conference, expo, speech, and presentation that you make is being recorded and will be available to the world via the Internet.

It may not even be that far from the truth.
