Dave Winer on his blog talks further behind his quote in today’s NY Times story…
Dave says: We are people with hearts, lives, families, aspirations, hope and something to say. That’s by far the more interesting story, and it has legs, it’s going somewhere, unlike the tail, which is a vestige of times gone by, when you could count on people to be idiotic couch potatoes, ready to be harvested by advertisers with their intrusive and mindless “messages.”
I would add to Dave’s point: the key thing is that people can now say what they believe in unfiltered… and with social connectedness of this new syndicated environment…the filtering is handled by the people so the good stuff comes to the top without prejudice – this is the profound shift that will change how individuals and corporations will communicate to customers.

Podcasting and its impact on use as a culture. I think that you said it ” this is the profound shift that will change how individuals and corporations will communicate to customers.”
It will be that and more.
