Anyone Remember Podcasting?

Google Trends on “podcasting” Podcasting is passe? No, the use of audio is not, but as a “hot trend” …..? I’ve always had mixed feelings about podcasting- as a strung together series of technologies- publishing audio in format associated with RSS that could be automatically downloaded, and optionally moved to a portable device– that I […]

Drag and drop your mp3 music into a sound track. drop or record your voide in a voice track, drop image files into the podcast track […]

Podcasting on the Cheap

As just mentioned, today I presented Podcasting on the Cheap / Thinking Before You Click Record” for the NMC Online Conference on Personal Broadcasting.

There is really about 25 minutes of stage time in these sessions, and I knew I had a lot of ground to cover, so it went at supersonic speed. Actually a bit too fast. The presentation is here in parts- you’d need to be registered in the conference to hear the recorded archive, but I loaded must of the links in a wiki at

I got the browser screens as small as possible (for the content), and in Elluminate, I displayed them via applicatio sharing. Some of the main chat banter was people trying to guess what web browser I was using, because of the weird pattern of all the pending tabss:


I’ll share a few of the quickly mocked up creative commons licensed flickr images I used (and by the way, FlickrLilli rocks for finding them much better than flickr has set up- what has happened to the innovation at flickr’s site? it has plateau-ed as it has been yahoo-ed):


Sick Of Podcasting

After a second Podcasting, Schmodcasting demo this week, I am getting sick and tired of talking about them ;-) This was for a mostly faculty crowd at Glendale Community College, who managed to all suit in the last two rows of the room. Different from Monday, today I moved more quickly through the variety of […]
