I've always liked what Adam Curry puts on the internet, and in this latest project he's doing exactly what I'm trying to do with Ed Radio - pull content from RSS feeds and use it to create live streaming radio. This, of course, is an oldish idea; what's new is the use of streaming radio. He's been doing it on his podcast for years. And it's similar to the way ds106 radio was set up, where the on-air content was composed of submissions uploaded via dropbox (and it looks like Curry will also use Dropbox). "All this can be automated," writes Curry, "the technology is in place. It's time for RSS to revolutionize radio. And you're going to be a part of it." I don't know exactly where this will go, but it's a fun way to produce a radio stream that is really interesting and unpredictable, and something I will definitely continue to explore over the summer.
