Title: Podcasting – Another cool thing I (and everyone else) just discovered

Somehow I missed this.. perhaps not that suprising considdering no one was talking about it since just a week or so ago.. at least according to my feed history. (In fact its 6 weeks yesterday according to Evilgenuis Chronicles 😉
About a month ago I discovered Adam Curry’s Weekly Source Code. Now he was really playing around with audio equipment at that moment, and a month later I see he is now bussily pioneering what they are calling Podcasting… The recording of audio-logs, (in this case dialy, hence the new name “Daily Source Code”), that are then automaticly downloaded to people’s audio devices.. Ipod offered the simplest framework for this, but with the release of Ipodder for Windows, you can now do it with Media player 10, and then sync with your phone or Ipaq or whatever (XDA in my case, once I get a working headphone again!).
Read this Wired.com article to get up to speed on this exiting new technology.
What I find absolutly amazing is the speed at which it seems to have grown and people are talking about it. 6 Weeks and the podcasts are sprouting up faster than fungus in my fridge. Adam has a list going at Ipodder.org. Here are some more list sites: Podcasters.org, Podcast.net, iPodderX, and meanwhile everyone is talking about it. (with everyone I mean everyone in the upper-echelon tech community).
Right now I have my XDA (wtf, the O2 site doesnt understand Firefox?!!) syncing with my game pc.. makes the most sense if I hook it up to my laptop now, as I am using it more anyway, and I now have this great extra reason to sync with it! Problem is though… my headphone cable that came with the XDA is broken, as Adam’s was coincidentily, and I might have the same probs he had getting a replacement.
When I start making daily trips to my new job I start the 18th, I will be very happy with some disctraction on the trainride, what better way than with some podcasts and some music. (Well actually, I also have some other stuff lined up for my train trips, but they require me pulling out the laptop.. )
