The numbers are in and it's official: In January 2007 the Libsyn Network served a record high of 64.3 million downloads in a month. Congratulations to all of the hard working producers out there growing your audiences and making your shows a success!
Correction: We noticed a slight error with this report. After another audit of our statistical reporting system, we have adjusted our calculation for our January 2007 download numbers. The actual downloads equal 63.4 million.

The Wall Street Journal recently published an article about the next big things in media, and over 66% of the podcasts mentioned are libsyn users!
While we are thrilled that WSJ have noticed a few of our standout customers, they missed about 4,500 others. We'll let them know about it and hopefully they'll extend their list next time!

Sitting in a Starbucks in SanFran as I "cut" this puppy, I am realizing how much fun I had at the Corporate Podcasting Summit. Must admit, I didn't know what to expect - actually shaved every day for this event. Anita over there ran everything tight as a drum, and the speakers, panelists and attendees were a very inspired crew. We had fun and the excitement for the medium was still very sincere. Glad about that.
Characters in tow:
Elisabeth of Podcasting News (pictured) - Never Miss a day on that site!
Mark Blevis (pictured) - Canada Rocks!
Rob Walch of Podcast411 - Like a Rock
Chris Macdonald - Indiefeed pioneer shows libsyn how to stroll
Jon Cobb - His brains worth a Million, Smiles... priceless
Michael Geoghegan - The White Night of Podcasting
Paul Colligan - PLAy on!!
James Harris of ListenShare - Smart and Smooth
Yong Fu - Stealthin' - Awesome Guy - no link
Not in the Vid but Check his stuff!
Craig Syverson - Podcasting's Buckeroo Bonzai
I'll probably touch up this list as I find everyone on the web.
Coming soon memories of Bloggercon IV

Please, everyone come buy a drink for our tireless traveler. The event sounds totally awesome, and we're bummed we all can't go. Live it up for us, Dave!

We'd like to take a moment and recognize another milestone and truly thank everyone for their participation in helping to build the premiere podcast delivery network. This is a network built by you guys and girls, the podcasters, from the ground up to be exactly what you need.Alright kids, geek alert. Here's our latest stats libsyn is now 3,000 users (and growing rapidly) with over 55,000 episodes online serving almost 1 million media files every day. What does that look like on the nerd side?- about a terabyte of data served every hour!
.... ya our reaction too when we calculated that number.
Ok, nerd break over, back to work. Thanks everyone, seriously, we still are amazed when people find out about us and come join our network. We love you.

Two years ago I asked this question: Why can't we have global, ubiquitous non biased coverage of the olympics available to anyone and everyone, for free, via a p2p delivery network? The olypics are an international competition of goodwill, yet here in America exclusive rights and coverage is bid on and owned by one of the major media networks. Then, the events of most interest to the least common denominator of US viewers are recorded, edited and replayed in prime time.
I would like to seriously put forth the challenge, to all independent media outlets, that we band together and plan for the 2008 summer games complete, on-demand, streamable, coverage- free for anyone in the world to watch.
Here are some things we need to figure out how to pull off:
coverageThis may be one of the hardest pieces. We need unadulterated footage of every trial of every event. This could mean a sizable investment to cover actually having a film crew on site, and also having a mechanism to allow uploads of event coverage for citizens of this participating community worldwide. We then need to develop a way to allow multiple commentary tracks to be recorded/uploaded/synched to allow for multi-national point of view commentary. Graphics overlays should also be able to be created,uploaded, and drawn in dynamically by the international consortium of olympic coverers. All the typical resources a commentary team has on hand, like historical statistics, relevant back story, insider information, etc needs to be linked in via a comprehensive wikipedia like knowledge base.
deliveryTo power the delivery of this massive archive of video footage, a more robust and flexible peer-to-peer technology needs to be developed so that a billion people worldwide can tune in via web, tv, and mobil video appliance. The UI should be a timeline map, of every event, including every trial run, as well as medal round. The viewer should be able to pick and begin viewing on-demand. The user should able to pick from angles, pov, language, and also vote on quality and completeness of any given event coverage. After several years of different experiments in the wisdom of crowds filtering, we as an online community should be able to develop something to handle this task.
archivalOnce complete, this people's history of the olympic games should be kept online and available for all posterity.
Sponsors currently pay how many millions and millions of dollars- for what? At least sponsors of the people's coverage of the olympics will be contributing to something great. We would form an international organization and every dollar raised would go to the production, development, delivery, and archiving of the event and future olympics.
If nothing else, over this past year we have learned the cost of technology is not a limiting factor. The shear processing, storage, and delivery power to make this a reality is here today and not difficult or expensive to obtain. I don't think this is a pipe dream at all, and with the help of some smart people and some money we can make this a reality.Do I have any takers?

We heard about this a while back and thought it would be rad to go, then the holidays came and we kinda forgot, but then was reminded by our friend Chris at Indie Feed, so we said hell ya, let's make a road trip to NC! So tomorrow night, we're going to pack the car and head out. Everyone on the east coast should be there, no excuses! http://www.podcastercon.org/ Let's hope the old car will make it.

That's the booth you will find the boys from the libsyn squad! Everyone is invited to come by our booth for a party! Black tie optional.
Friday, from opening to close, come dance, get your prom pictures taken, have a ball at booth 411.
Saturday, (if we wake up from the after prom party) will be special give-away day. Come see the boys and get an awesome prize if you are able to correctly guess (roughly) how many liberated synners there currently are running around the podcasting space. I'll give you a hint.. the libsyn prom is "class of ______".
See you kids in LA!

Quietly, one night in November 2004, 4 old friends got together around a common idea. We got that computer from Weird Science, connected the electrodes to a Christian Slater doll, Marty put a bra on his head, Hoopes did some layup drills... we hit the enter key and.. well.. the rest is a foggy dream. Not that we've slept much since to have many dreams.
This year, we had some cupcakes to celebrate. Maybe next year we'll be drinking champagne. Perhaps we'll even have some this year, next week at the expo!
Come give us some love, or a punch in the face. Both are probably equally deserved. We love you all.

Thanks to Nathan Cornett and Andy Kelemen, two talented guys that produced this spot. Nate called us up, said he was coming over to shoot our commercial and made it happen. Featured in the video is Jarrod DiGiorgi, Patrick Jordan, Dave Mansueto, Spat Cannon, and Mark Whitehead. Music is by Shopping. Thanks to Nick Falwell for the use of the music, keep your eyes peeled for his new band Centipede Eest. Not enough credit goes out to Grape-A-Don from Grand Buffet for our logo that we affectionately refer to as "Soapy". Give us some feedback on this thing, It kinda has that circa '93 pringles feel about it. Maybe we should get some girls in the next one. Thoughts?

That's right, it's official. Come and see all your favorite team libsyn members at the Podcast Conference and Mobile Media Expo November 11th and 12th. We're super pumped. California... podcasters... what could be better. These east coast boys could use the sun- believe me. It's going to be great meeting all of you who've been through alot with us over the past year. Please don't hesitate to run up and give Hoopes a big ol' bear hug (he loves that shit!) Not sure where the after party is yet- but I heard Dave M was buying. It's going to be the hottest damn thing that state has ever seen. Don't lame out, come join the fun. Does anyone know Christian Slater? He needs to kick it at our booth.

Ok everyone, not a lot of time to write. We've been trying to smoothly and seamlessly transfer our operation to better hardware over the past week or so.. but the iTunes push has caused us to make it happen tonight. We're going to continue to work hard to ensure everything stays up and running, but expect to experience some times or trouble this afternoon, evening, and hopefully everything will be back up by tomorrow morning.. we've worked through the night before.. in fact.. like every night it seems.. so please please.. everyone now more then ever we need your support and utmost patience with us and we made big moves.
What can you all do? Once we say go, we're going to open up a forum for everyone to blast out bugs with the new stuff. We'll line up up and knock up down and together we all will come out the other side on top.
for up to the minute follow the thread here: http://libsyn.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=584

Libsyn starts a podcast. Isn't that fancy? Inaugural podcast for the liberated syndication sound-off. The boys sit around in the Maryland heatwave talk about new stats, WWDC, and being back together (physically) for the first time in a long while. Dave M looks sharp in his button-down shirt, Hoopes gets drunk on Taurine, Marty does the work of 4 men, and Dave C gets over his fear of talking... out loud. Dirty raw, DIY podcasting.. but clean enough for work consumption.
