Learn about Podcasting

On January 7, 2006 we'll be holding PodcasterCon 2006 at UNC-Chapel Hill. It will be held in 116 Murphey Hall from 9am - 6pm. It's a free one day conference open to all participants to discuss and learn about podcasting. This not for profit event is being organized by a group of volunteers from around the world. Find out more about the sessions on the PodcasterCon wiki page.

The event will not have traditional speakers, commercial product pitches, or bags full of conference swag. The event will have free food and drink, pre-organized sessions, and will be conducted in an unconference style. Please go to this page on our blog to learn more about this style of event. You can register for this free event here.

What is Podcasting? "Podcasting is a term used to describe a collection of technologies for automatically distributing audio programs over the Internet using a publisher/subscriber model. It differs from earlier online delivery of audio or video because it automatically transfers the digital media files to the user's computer for later use. Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "shows," and gives broadcast radio or television programs a new distribution method." [via Wikipedia]
