Podcasting is the Macmillan dictionary's current word of the week ....
And they credit Adam Curry with popularising the term. I used his "soundseeing" tour of Schipol airport in a lesson (with a group of computer programmers) but actually I guess the subject was "pointless but interesting behaviour" rather than airports per se. I set them a lot of mp3s as homework on a kind of "extensive listening" concept. Ideal for coporate clients with a shared drive on their networks. Everyone can access the sound whenever they want.

I listened to Curry's article from the Sean Ellis link on the way home last night - hey I'm taking podcasting thing seriously. He does come across as a something of a pioneer and the quality of content and production seems to be streets ahead of others. I'd be interested to hear of other material you've used successfully.

I've been listening to Adam Curry for a while now, and he really is the pioneer of podcasting. His show acts as a hub for podcasting and he promotes other podcasts, and gives out ideas to people on how to produce podcasts as well as the types of shows that could be done. I remember listening to one show when he was discussing the idea of people who were keen to get podcasting but didn't know where to start to do a podcast aimed at blind listeners.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a podcasting site. It pretty much covers podcasting related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)
