I'm running into some difficulties with how best to address syndicated shows and I'd appreciate your feedback.
The background is that I'm trying to specify scheduling rules (https://hackerpublicradio.org/calendar.php) trying to been fair to everyone but also with a view to automating the task. I've taken the view that shows produced for HPR will get priority in the schedule before syndicated shows. This brings up the question of what is a syndicated shows.
If a show is posted to a RSS feed before been posted to HPR then it would be considered to be a syndicated show. However we have had resubmission of a series that was on a podcast that faded so probably no one heard them. Are theses shows now syndicated or do I schedule them as HPR shows ?
We have also had submissions from a host that posts to the HPR FTP server and their own feed at the same time. Because of the delay in HPR scheduling they come out later than their own RSS feed. So are these also now syndicated ?
After hearing 635 Dismal Science:: Cloudy Predictions I was reminded that the speech Freedom In the Cloud: Software Freedom, Privacy, and Security for Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing by A Speech given by Eben Moglen at a meeting of the Internet Society's New York branch on Feb 5, 2010 would be ideal for HPR. Then Fifty OneFifty emailed to say "I noticed there hadn't been any recordings from LUG meetings in a while. I thought you might want to ask for submissions where meetings or talks (from various fests) are already recorded." With the scheduling rules as they are at the moment, the syndicated don't ever get played.
On the other side I've had comments that the "Flood Gates" had been opened on the HPR feed.
So thinking about it I was thinking of reserving Tuesday and Thursday for syndicated shows, LUG talks, Speeches and the like. Feedback to the mailing list https://hackerpublicradio.org/maillist
