AA MEETING in church basement:
Hi, my name is Rick and I'm an old programmer and businessman doing some leading edge web application development that has now become AN OBSESSION. For two years now, I have done little but code. My wife complains; I told her she knew she was in for the long haul so be strong. Where did I go wrong?
OH. I have NO podcast. Who has time, right?
FIRST: For any HOSTING COMPANIES or PODCAST PRODUCTION SERVICES here, please do NOT be alarmed. I come in peace. NO interest in those areas, per se... necessary, but not my thing.
I am building RSS database indexes AND web user-interfaces to them. NO CHANGE to the regular RSS flow at all. It's all in the packaging and presentation, in my view.
The website serving for initial roll-out of this OBSESSION is:http://podDVR.com
Some of you may have heard about it. Yes, some glitches, but will be smoothed out (have you checked out Periscope? More buggy, but still very cool... watch!.).
podDVR and OUR TECHNOLOGY will grow into a powerful, sleek WEB MULTIMEDIA MACHINE. Think fine automobile... but for FREE. It IS the internet. Alright, there will be a money-making angle but IN DUE TIME and as an addon. Besides, gotta get the kinks worked out and let people have a chance the use it first. At core, it is COMMUNITY builder
It is a work in process, a proof of concept, a toy that got totally out of control. What happens when you take long experience, creative coding, the really cool things these REALLY smart people are putting out for folks like me with the resources to play with! IT IS GREAT!
Our REAL product is the underlying foundation, VIZdex. It is an Annotated Timeline Presentation Platform. We intend many verticals but are starting with podcasting because it has a VERY STRONG business case.
YOU are in the right arena at the right time, we think:
PODCASTING is the NEW BROADCASTING
Seriously. I could stand up and debate the issue STRONGLY... can't you?
While I'm at it, you might want to know why this technology WILL be your best friend when it comes to GROWING AUDIENCES. I'm not talking about incremental exposure... we're looking at SIGNIFICANT MULTIPLES. I'll make that case later, though, OK? EVERYBODY will come out ahead. Here's my mantra in this sector:
GROW THE PIE
ANYWAY, podDVR.com is designed to give visitors QUICK ACCESS to related MULTIMEDIA in one screen and a unified player along with TIMELINE NAVIGATION of all items, which may carry media of various TYPES:
Mix and match; no kidding. As soon as I finish here, I am going to start work on a VIDEO to SHOW people all of the above.
When finished, I'll come back here to post a link and see IF there are any comments from this post.
SO... I'll be back but may take a while. Only looking to do about 2 minutes BUT you might not believe how I want it produced...
Anybody remember some old TV Guide covers that had the star of a show inside a TV, which had a TV in it with the star, and so on. THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO DO.
Don't even know if I can do it.... this will take some hours to get anywhere near what I see in my head right now. OK, good people, later.

1. JUST SO YOU KNOW I'M SERIOUS: Despite being a paying google apps for business user for years (tossed Outlook et all for full cloud, never looked back), I ONLY signed up for google+ to INTRODUCE MYSELF, PROJECT, AND GOAL. I really do not like some aspects, just like Twitter, so HAVE NEVER USED IT nor really missed it... but time will tell. I'm really just a low profile kind of guy, see?
2. So, I was UNaware of this group... cannot even browse without, well... it now appears that there's a party here. Great. Hope to meet some good folks. But time is short and must twttr and must code.
