A podcast is a series of audio or video digital-media files which is distributed over the Internet by syndicated download, through Web feeds, to portable media players and personal computers. Though the same content may also be made available by direct download or streaming, a podcast is distinguished from other digital-media formats by its ability to be syndicated, subscribed to, and downloaded automatically when new content is added.

  1. Hehe.. If I have the time this week, I will upload the presentation and the notes we came up with for the Science08 Workshop. That will help to explain some more stuff..
    I was thinking Mediacorps is putting their content online, not syndicating it, and calling it podcast. But this is just plain stupid. It’s more like associated “Media”.

  2. eastcoastlife: Podcast have RSS feed so that it can be pushed to your computer using softwares like iTunes. The so called “Noose Podcast” has no RSS feed. Not that they forgot to put the RSS feed. They even ask you to come back frequently to check for updates.
    Clearly they don’t understand what is a podcast.

  3. Or they do, but they hope you don’t and really come back for more updates, so that they can boast that our outreach to the new media crowd has paid off, with an amazing 2925244 hits on our Noose podcast site?

    Farinelli: Don’t think they have RSS feeds. I think they really want you to go back their site frequently to check for new updates.
