Ethics, Sponsorship, etc.

by Tim Elliott on March 1, 2007

I’ve updated my “About” page with a “Code of Ethics” statement. This was inspired by Alder’s post on Vinography last summer and I wrote 80% of this at that time and then filed it away for later.

The impetus to finish this today was because I am opening Winecast up for sponsorship. Longtime readers will remember I signed up with Backbeat Media for podcast sponsorship early last year, but after only one sponsor in a year, Backbeat and I have come to the conclusion that we should come at this differently and part ways. Best wishes to Dave and all the folks at Backbeat who have been great to work with… if I was a tech podcaster, I’d still be with them.

So this is the soft launch of my new sponsorship program as I finish my media kit. Anyone who is interested can email me for more details at sponsor (at) winecast (dot) net. This step is a necessary one for me to create some additional income from what I do here but I don’t take this lightly as you can see in my ethics statements.

I’m working on a couple of other things to enhance this site and podcast. Stay tuned.
