The Podcast Guild promotes podcasting worldwide; provides resources, information, and advocacy for podcasters; and works to build and maintain an effective technical, business, artistic, and legal environment for podcasting.
Newark, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2006
In order to promote and support the art and business of podcasting, The Podcast Guild was recently founded by some of the medium's most active, prominent producers. The Guild is in the process of defining a legal structure and is seeking charter members and funding.
Despite being declared the 2005 Word of the Year by the New Oxford American Dictionary, "podcast" still lacks "man on the street" recognition.
The Podcast Guild planning committee chair Paul Puri, whose Unsigned Podcast Network spotlights independent artists, claims, "Podcasting has the potential to change the world. The Podcast Guild will help develop the medium for both podcast producers and listeners."
The Guild's mission statement proclaims, "The Podcast Guild promotes podcasting worldwide; provides resources, information, and advocacy for podcasters; and works to build and maintain an effective technical, business, artistic, and legal environment for podcasting."
The Guild is looking for $15,000 in startup grants to establish a non-profit corporation and seeks additional founding members for the committee (financial contribution optional). Interested parties should contact Paul Puri for more information.
Podcasts are audio programs that automatically download to your portable media player or computer. You do not need to own or have access to an Apple iPod player to enjoy podcasts -- any modern computer will enable you to enjoy this vibrant new medium.
