I’ve recently become interested-in and fascincated-with the idea of “microbroadcasting.” In the radio world, the term microbroadcast referred to a small radio station, often a pirate radio station. These stations broadcast infrequently, and often you needed to discover its frequency and program schedule through a means other than the radio station.
On the internet, anyone can be a broadcaster using only a smartphone with an app, or a webcam and some software. There are plenty of “broadcast-it-yourself” applications. So what is it that makes one a microbroadcaster and not a broadcaster?
