Podcasting: Internet Radio On Demand... and MORE!
(Page 1 of 3 )
If you haven't heard the term "podcast" yet, you will.
It's about to blow the world of online audio through the roof as every Tom, Dick and Shirley can now operate a high powered Internet Radio station providing on-demand audio (and shortly, video) with nothing more than a microphone, simple software, and a little imagination.
Just like cable TV in the 1980's gave smaller networks and individuals a voice on television, podcasting gives individuals a voice (literally) through online audio.
Podcasting is actually the audio form of "blogging," where individuals share their thoughts in writing over time on a dynamic webpage known as a "blog."
With blogging, subscribers and other blog publishers subscribe to and cross promote each other's content by linking to and writing about each other.
With podcasting, the author shares his or her thoughts in audio form (MP3) and subscribers download and listen to the audio either on their computers, burn the files to CD, or transfer the files to one of the increasingly popular portable MP3 players.
In fact, the term "podcasting" draws its name from the iPod, created by Apple Computers.
Initially you might think the only people podcasting are geeks and computer nerds, but that's not the case.
