    Actually when I first started watching the oxygen channel, some people said it portrayed men as abusers. But watching some programming it was further from the truth. In fact watching some of the "Snapped" episodes which featured women criminals, seemed out of place...lol. But I think as you get older your tastes change and wanted something different on occasion. I don't watch it exclusively, but if it has an interesting movie I'll watch it. Lately it has been LMN channel which I recently upgraded my cable package as it was cheaper.

    Talking about Woman CEO, how about the new one at Yahoo, Didn't she already have a lucrative position somewhere else?

    I think with Netflix, Hulu Plus and new media has changed the way cable/tv stations do things. Actually a lot of cable stations had to change over the years. With MTV not showing music videos much, name changes, adding programming outside of the channels theme shows that.

    In regards to the female Yahoo CEO because it was a big company that was the only reason why they may have mentioned it. There have been women CEO's for generations it is only when it becomes popular that some of these women will be recognized outside of major female organizations such as NOW.

    I think this is a very interesting discussion and will be moving it to its own thread.

    Oh ok great! This is a topic that I have always wondered about. It is not the fact that I don't like men. There are men who support women in technology. I just wish that there was a stronger awareness for it.

    Thanks Andrew. I was wondering if Andrew might be kind of mad at us about going off topic. But thanks for letting him put this in a separate thread.

    There are men who support women in technology. I just wish that there was a stronger awareness for it.
    I just don't think people will try to separate women podcaters/technologists into their own group. Look at this site. It was designed to help any podcaster regardless of gender or ethnic background.

    For years we have been trying to promote equality among the genders, not necessarily single any gender out.

    I've been broadcasting for almost 4 years now and still don't have a massive following. I average 10 viewers per show, 17 if I have a good day. My Youtube channel has been going for a year and a half with only 228 followers. Being a white male, 46 y/o does not give me an edge in podcasting.

    But, I have not been actively promoting my show as much anymore.

    The fact that you show is not doing well is what you mentioned is lack of promotion. If you don't put the work into it of course it will not do well. If you have good content(which I am sure you do) then you should be fine. The fact that you have 228 followers with low promotion is impressive. There are some people on YouTube who yet to have those kind of numbers. I would also like to thank Andrew for realizing how important this issue is.

    Although IAIB features people of different cultures and backgrounds White people still have an invisible privilege in the podcasting game because it has been pre-determined by the mainstream industry. If we were all equal then of course there were would be no need for organizations that focus on the awareness of people of color in the media. There is a lack of well-educated people of color in the mainstream media especially women who are not seen as sex symbols.

    Youtube is now hard to get breakout numbers simply because the massive amounts of video uploaded every day. Its hard to get noticed. But using Blip.tv & using its uploading features to multiple sites my viewing numbers are 2-3 times that of Youtube.

    In what ways has it been pre-determined? I have certainly have not seen any privileges for my broadcast. What viewers I do have is through a lot of hard work, perseverance and enjoying what I do. I think other factors need to be considered that might account why we might not be seeing as many minority podcasters. I already mentioned one factor already. Population size is one key factor. We simply are not going to see the same number of podcasters proportional between majority and minority groups.

    In fact it should be easier for them to get noticed through the internet. Nowadays all you need is a computer. The cost is substantially reduced. A lot of video/audio is on par with what cable/television/film industry is right now. All made available and easy access through a multitude of free host websites. iTunes, Youtube, Vimeo ect.

    Don't forget main stream media is much different from new media. New Media allows anybody to easily and cheaply be seen world wide. New Media actually puts people on a much more equal scale then the conventional media ( TV/Cable/Newspapers/Film )

    I would have to disagree with you in regards to new media being cheaper to produce. The more popular your show becomes the higher expectation is given for you show to be of better quality besides the content. Population size does not have anything to do with minorities in the new media community. By 2025, there will be more minorities in the U.S. than White people. I feel what is really is that our voices are not being accounted for because we are still considered to be secondary in regards to the production of our media. For example, for African-Americans we have BET. However, the channel itself only focuses on entertainment instead of bringing up real issues that affect the African-American community besides entertainment.

    Also the production value for some new media programming is almost equal to traditional media. A show like Tosh.O is certainly not running on a cheap budget and it kind of balances between media convergence.

    Its certainly cheaper when your starting out. Its a personal choice on how or far you want to go regardless of expectations.

    Population size does not have anything to do with minorities in the new media community. By 2025, there will be more minorities in the U.S. than White people.
    If population size does not matter, why are you quoting what will be 13 years from now? Thats then, this is now. Minorities will obviously be much larger, so we should see a proportionally larger sections of minorities in the media.

    I feel what is really is that our voices are not being accounted for because we are still considered to be secondary in regards to the production of our media. For example, for African-Americans we have BET. However, the channel itself only focuses on entertainment instead of bringing up real issues that affect the African-American community besides entertainment.
    But the media, whether entertainment or local news, is still run as a business. They will stick with a business model that makes the most money. Human interest stories will only go so far in keeping the viewer engaged or they will look elsewhere.

    The most we will probably see is the most popular content first with the rest following.

    I feel that people need to be concerned about the future of media and our society. You are clearly forgetting that the minority controls the majority. Our mainstream media is still clearly being controlled by White people. If minorities are placed in that position that is because they have proved themselves to be worthy to work along side their White counterparts. If we are all on the same playing field than there is not a need for minority media in the first place. But because our voices are still being muted to a certain extent this is why so many stereotypes of people of color exist in the media.

    Everyone cares about making a profit when we should be trying to build deeper understands among one another.
