KOMO in Seattle on Podcasting: "We are SO excited about this." Bing! Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Can you believe it, the hotel I checked into doesn't allow you to send email via SMTP. I called their support number and they confirmed it. They're blocking port 25. Why? I don't know said the support guy. But I chose this hotel because they advertised complementary Internet access. Anyway if I haven't responded to your email, that's why. Getting ready to watch the debate. I'll worry about it tomorrow. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Had a meeting about AV at Stanford today. The three main rooms for BloggerCon will have one wireless lav mike for the discussion leader, and two wireless hand-helds for the monitors to bring to participants. We will be able to tap into the line-out, as well as drive a webcast (fingers crossed). The main room also has several built-in video cameras, very nice quality. Each room has a projector for laptops, the discussion leaders should bring their laptops. Next step is to get Doug Kaye in the loop. (Can't send email, arrrgh.) Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Arrived safely. Weather report -- Seattle: Rainy. California: Sunny.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Kristi Helm, via email: "Sun is so overrated." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Today's a travel day. Weird feeling getting ready. In my head I plan my route to and through Terminal B. At Logan! Ooops. My poor brain hasn't caught up with all the travelling I've done. This trip doesn't involve Boston or NY. Damn that's really strange.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

EVP: Kerry 280, Bush 239Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Engadget: "Besides playing MP3s, Auviís new 256MB USB-style flash memory has an FM tuner, a built-in voice recorder, and can record MP3s from radio broadcasts." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named pod.jpgIf you want to understand podcasting, get an iPod, get the software, subscribe to some feeds. Then go for a drive, ride a subway or an airplane, take a walk, do something away from the computer and take the iPod with you. Listen to one of the new programs. Then let me know if it works. Fact is, you can't use your eyes when you're driving, they're busy. Same with walking. It's pretty hard to type on a subway. Annotation, if it's going to happen, will be in voice, and implemented in the iPod. It's easy to see if you just use it. Use it. Use it. Nike says just do it. The iPod commands: Use it. Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Scoble says you don't have to use an iPod to podcast. I hear that's true. I have an iPod myself. Works great.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.
