As many of us know, the US Government has imposed fees on the broadcast of Internet Radio, starting next month, I believe. I just came across this interesting article with describes what might be the future - P2P-Internet Radio.
Sounds similar to an already existing program, ShoutCast (from Nullsoft, the same makers of the great MP3 player, WinAmp). A few years back, I used to listen to Shoutcast streams every night - was introduced to some great new music that way. It's a shame that these fees are going to make the outlet almost disappear. Unless services like these P2P Streaming Radio can catch on. If I could, I would set up my own PC to stream music, with my diverse tastes in music, I'd have quite an interesting P2Pstation.
Maybe the future might hold LAN-Radio stations? An ideal situation might be for cable internet users, the cable company setting up an independant streaming server from their HQ - streaming music to their customers, free of charge! Some decent ideas, don't you think?
