We now support RSS enclosures so people can podcast from us. OH YEAH.

Didn't I just talk to you about this a couple of days ago and you commented on how lame this was? Oh, and the space issue...

Still, so how is one going to put in a get sounding podcast unless you let people email (or be geeky and let them dial in via SIP to your server)?
Can you pull a particular rss feed of just podcasts from a journal?

Some sort of tagging of entries so that you can set up specific RSS feeds would be nice.

See, do this right and:
people subscribe
some will have it automatically loading into itunes
you then create obnoxious podcasts and force the word to listen

Ain't the web great?

It is pretty lame. But humorously so. And since we have all the crap, so might as well add it. I'm going to have fun with it while the buzzwords are still funny.

Heh, if you're going to go to the effort of creating a enclosure, may as well create an atom/rss feed for only phoneposts (kind of like what already exists for recent images).

We already support either ogg or gsm-wav. But those both suck for most people, so we'd like to get mp3 support (trivial, but requires licensing), or most likely we'll just add 3 or 4 download links for each audio type... ogg, gsm-wav, aac/m4a, flac, ...? Who knows.

I envy you! Not because you just discovered Scientology though! Haha ;)
I came back from San Francisco yesterday night, and man that city is great! You're lucky to live there. :)

Cool would be being able to hand-craft an tag at the start of my LJ post and LJ would be smart enough to "eat" it and attach it to my post so that my normal user RSS feed includes it in the RSS feed. Voila, instant Podcast-via-LJ.

That'd be swell, you know?

I like it from a dork and I-know-RSS-kinda perspective, so I might add that, but it's definitely not a good end-user experience.

... hand-craft an tag ...

I originally wrote "... hand-craft an <enclosure> tag ..." but used real angle-brackets instead of HTML entities. Oops.

please refrain from using the term "cali." the word is "california" and those from there say that.

i hope you're not also running around saying dreadful things like "frisco" and "san fran."

the horror.

The transcription from Garrett is bogus. I didn't and don't say Cali.
