Time for a podcast player unconference?

by Peter Rojas

I know it's been a while since I talked about this, but I was just thinking the other day about Dave Winer's panel at Mix07 about creating the perfect podcast player and thought: Why don't we do a unconference about this? We saw so much interest and excitement about the prospect of building one, it'd be awesome to get a bunch of smart, creative people all in the same place at the same time to talk about it. I could see UI experts interacting with hardware engineers, software gurus chatting with podcasters about what features they'd want for producing podcasts, gadget enthusiasts (like me) talking about what works and what doesn't about the current players that are out there, etc. I have no idea whether it'd get us any closer to getting one built, but it's hard to imagine that SOMETHING positive wouldn't come out of so many motivated people coming together with a common goal in mind. Dave, you up for it? I'll be back in San Francisco next month, I'm sure we could throw something together.
