The hippest new way to broadcast information on the internet, podcasting, crept into internet vocabulary in 2004. And the editors of the New Oxford American Dictionary have selected “podcast” as the word of the year for 2005.
Why is podcasting cool and so compelling? Unlike traditional broadcasting, podcasting allows you to select what you want to download to your iPod or other portable audio device and listen to later.
A podcast is the wide and growing world of a blog. And of course that’s mean it’s as that cheap: free and for all. The major difference is that a podcast involves audio content feeds of “live happenings” while a blog records what happened in the past. So podcast yourself and you’ll catch up the growing of technology.
Especially, no one controls over what you have podcast. No rules, no regulations. Adam Curry, known as an MTV VJ to some but to most as one of the fathers of podcasting said, “You can hear all these shows that are completely free and open with no FCC restrictions and they don’t have to sound the way radio traditionally has.” He added, “Anyone who wants to sell anything or communicate through audio can use this technology.” And since anyone can be a podcaster, the cost of publishing free speech plunges.
Podcasting is a cross between a radio show and a blog. The great thing is anyone can produce a podcast with little budget and basic knowledge of IT. Once you have produced your own podcast, and as long as you keep on podcasting, you can invite people to subscribe to receive updates regularly instead of having to revisit your site. This is done in a very similar way to using an RSS reader to syndicate blog.
Now, if you want to be a celebrity overnight, all you need is a little piece of software, sort of Music Morpher Gold, a microphone and a great concept and you’re an instant podcaster. Not only your voice will be podcast, the many formats of podcasting will also let you publish your video or pictures. That’s the reason why you can use DVD Player-Morpher Gold to produce those stuffs.
Have a future in entertainment industry. Host your own talk show, music radio, personal radio show, etc. Or just distribute your audio and video via the internet. It’s all about convenience! Let everyone see your music as “a proper podcast” in place of “a common crap.”
