Re: Podcast Questions 10 years 8 months ago #85

<br />Okay - who wants to educate the unknowing.  <br /><br />     I just don't get the user of the term "podcast."  I thought the term was originally becaue the files were meant for viewing on Ipods.  The screwy thing is, most people just watch them on their computers.  It's not like Ipods have wireless sateliate links to the internet so you can get and listen to your favorite podcast wherever you are.  Since these things are mostly viewed on the computer, what makes them "podcasts?"  Just the format they are stored in.  I mean, what really separates them from any .avi or some such file?<br /><br /><br />JKW<br />

<br /><br />Stuff that goes into your ipod has to be downloaded to your computer first.  Here's a wiki entry that explains more:<br /><br />A podcast is distinguished from other digital media formats by its ability to be syndicated, subscribed to, and downloaded automatically when new content is added, using an aggregator or feed reader capable of reading feed formats such as RSS or Atom.<br /><br />

The mass distribution of "Talk Radio" type shows on the net happened to coincide with the introduction of the Apple IPod.  Everyone was naming stuff Pod this and Pod that.  Podcasting was suggested and it stuck.

<br /><br />Did you get to see Wil Wheaton at ComicCon?  Although I think he's not that great of an actor, I really like him as a person and a fellow geek.  He seems like a really nice guy.  was hoping he'd be at GenCon so I might at least get to shake his hand.

Did I see more podcasts being recorded at GenCon. I saw Dave and others in front of microphones, but it could have been a criminal deposition?<br /><br />Larry

I'm not sure if any of that imprompto recording will make the "official" list.  I think the riddle reveal will, however.<br /><br />We keep talking about getting started again, but life kinda gets in the way...<br /><br />Dave

Most of the impromptu is probably unairable.  We were flying by the seat of our pants and not very "professional", but we'll see what editing can do.
