some of you may be keeping an eye on what Adam Curry et al are doing in the audio world. they are "podcasting". they do the following: 1. make an audio shows on their computers using very simple, free technology 2. post them as enclosures to a blog post (i dont know how to do this yet either) 3. subscribe to feeds of these audio posts (use bloglines/feedster) 3. use newly, built open-source software (http://www.ipodder.org/directory/4/ipodderSoftware) to automaticaly download shows as they are posted 4. easily put the audio files to their iPod or MP3 player 5. listen to these homegrown shows anywhere and anytime they want Though Adam Curry, who is the cheerleader of the movement, has been working on this idea for 5 years now.... The reality of podcasting has taken literally 2 months to happen. In just the past week....look at all these new shows.... http://www.ipodder.org/directory/4/podcasts/whatsNew/newPodcasts this is something to pay attention to. the technology is there for audio.....video has a way to go. but its exciting to see so many people MAKING stuff.
