I'm a Broadcaster
I just booked a trip to San Francisco for GDC on Hotwire (fav travel site). I was looking at my confirmation email and noticed that I could give Horwire access to my TripIt account and it would automatically update tripit with my travel info.
Cool! I granted Hotwire access to my Tripit account, bcuz I like Hotwire and trust them. That's it. Now everyone who tunes into the Greg Wallace channel, knows where I'll be next week. And it dawned on me that I am a broadcaster.
This has some pretty major implications. For example, I have come to expect that, if anyone wants to know anything about me, and if I don't mind that you know, you can find it. Which in turn means that I don't have to tell "you" - you, unicast you.
I'll be going to Las Vegas in April for the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show. I wonder if I can join NAB as a broadcaster? Why not?
