Doing various experiments with podcasting services at the moment. It turns out it is much easier to publish video on the web than arrange pick-up of audio podcasts into iTunes. Also, the cost per MB is significantly higher. Perhaps that explains the fact that podcasting seems to have reached its natural peak and no longer seems to be growing. I have been gradually digitizing old editions of Media Network in an attempt to rescue tapes before they crumble into pieces of ferric oxide and polyester. I plugged my Revox tape recorder into the line-input of a Zoom H2 recorder, and the results are amazing. In fact, since these programmes were broadcast on shortwave, this is the first time people have been able to hear these documentaries in "studio quality". These programmes are being shared in the spirit of Creative Commons, i.e. I have no plans to charge for downloads.
