Podcasting and Podcatching for the Absolute Beginner

Dr. Larry Anderson has organized the session and has gathered several great podcasters. Ted Lai - co-authored iLife in the Classroom '06 with Jim Heid, David Warlick, Lucy Gray, Tim Wilson. There is a wiki set up at David's site that will contain notes taken by participants in the session. Ted and Tim are introducing the basics, talking about RSS. Defining Podcasts and Podcasting. The big thing about podcasting is the timeshifting aspect. Facts Doesn't require an iPod, Timeshifting, Not platform specific, Democratization.
Timeline - Podcasting officially began in Summer of 2004, Curry and Winer, Term coined in Sept. 2004, Thousands of podcasters online now. Fastest growing technology use in history.
Vocabulary - RSS, XML, enclosure, aggregator, blog, syndication.
David describes the relationship between blogging and podcasting, unfortunately the bandwidth suck is going big time and he can't get anywhere fast online.
Lucy is now going over podcatching in iTunes and my battery is about dead, so I am going to shorten this one and hope I can find an open outlet somewhere.

Hello, Kelly. I'm very glad you were able to attend our session at NECC. Also, I hope you found the cascade of presenters to be informative, invigorating, and entertaining. I'm quite proud of the panelists who agreed to help with this session; plus, I'm extremely proud to have had so many people attending and using David's wiki to insert their comments.
My only regret about this session is that there wasn't time to meet each person, individually. I truly would have loved to have met and spent time with you, because I have been a long-time subscriber to your podcast and give you kudos for a job well done.
Keep up your sterling work, Kelly!
