Internet radio a go-go

The recent CARP ruling which appears to ruin the chances of commercial Internet radio ever reaching its full potential, seems to have spurred a rash of new alternative resources. In fact it looks as though the CARP fiasco could be yet another own goal by those strange folks at the RIAA.

* Exhibit One: Peercast is an open source P2P broadcasting service which uses the Gnutella network to distribute audio streams to whoever wants to tune in.
* Exhibit Two: OpenDJ is billed as a ‘free, public access, distributed Internet broadcasting system’. Says it all really.
* Exhibit Three: Streamer. A somewhat cruder version of the same kind of Net broadcast service.

All of the above are free, and look as though they may be the start of something big.
