Podcasting

– November 24th, 2004 –

Now here’s an idea. (yes, probably an old one as things go but it’s one that i’ve just come across.) Podcasting is basically like RSS and Blogging, but audio instead of text and you download mp3’s to your iPod for consumption at your leisure.

The very cool thing about this is the blogging aspect (and of course the commercial implications, especially for broadcasters.) What we have here is another perfect vehicle for homemade content. In fact anyone can now produce an Audio blog in the form of an mp3 and have it available for download, all you need is an iPod (or similar device) and some software. You choose your feeds, just like an RSS application, which are stored on your iPod.

There was an interesting article in The Times about his on the 6th November.
