No iheartradio for me! But there is diaspora and Protonmail!
So I had a friend ask me the other day if I could get the podcast up on iheart radio. And to be honest I did actually think about it. So I started exploring the possibilty. The last I knew you had have an unheard of number of listeners ie several thousands before they would even look at you. Looks like they did lower their expectations and lost that section of requirements. Now they dont have any listener levels.
So I got a little excited and started digging into the signup process then ran across this this.
If you read through that destubatuib/content requirement agreement you basically give the ok for them to make a bunch of money of your content that they dont have to share back with you. And you let them use your artwork and content in their advertising for them. And you allow them to chop up/edit your content. Something you worked hard to create and they use it as there product.
So its basically more of the same. Big company uses individuals as a product to sell to advertisers. Just like Facebook, Twitter and Google.
Which brings me to the next part.
I have moved to diaspora and Protonmail
I’ve found a home on diaspora! You can join me at this linklink! I may end up on Mastadon and Friendi.ca by the end of the weej as well. I’m really liking this whole decentrialised social network thing. It seems super safe and nice not having my ass tracked all over the intenet and having ads shoved in my face from other sites that I’m not even on anymore.
I also have a new email. It’s in the footer of the site but its on Protonmail. Which is secure email on servers in Switzerland, so take that NSA! (I still want my backups you guys made, illegally). Anyways, the email is encrypted and was created by the nerds behind CERN! Thats just frickin cool in my book. Just do yourself a favor and check it out. They have a free version so you can try it. But even my Boneheadedness could see the value in it right off the bat and I did a paid version.
As of right now bontheadmedia.com is down and I am just going to turn it into a landing page to offer some cheap services for podcasting and audio stuff.
Now I wanna rock out! I also actually did something I have told myself to do for many months now. I went and checked out ccMixter. I havent put any of my music up there yet but I am planning on it. I will I promise. But I did find that there is a sister site called digccMixter and it is for royalty free music for games, videos, podcasts, etc. So I made the mistake of listening to some tunes. And I cant seem to stop jamming out to them today. So I’m gonna play them for you.
