Now, I’ve been mulling this over for so long that, in fact, the “podcasting” goalposts have moved some considerable distance since I first heard the term and choked most unpleasantly on my morning cup of tea.
Which is just the first problem – what the hell is podcasting anyway?
For the sake of some brevity, I want to tackle two things which seem to fall under this latest abortion of a word:
1. Recording yourself rambling on about something, and releasing it on the web.
2. Using RSS Media Enclosures to distribute audio content.
The majority of my scorn is reserved for the former.
