One of the things that I've been wanting to do since I was brought on as an Editor in Training was to start getting some audio content out to our fans. I am still working on putting together a fully fledged podcast, but in the interim I have decided to make my "Thoughts" available in audio format.

I hope that this will make some of our content more accessible to those of you who, like me, lead busy lives and don't always have the time to read a long article. So without further ado, I'd like to introduce my first the::unwired unwired::cast, available after the jump.

My first unwired::cast will be based on my latest Thought, Why is Symbian Failing in the U.S. The unwired::cast for this article is available for download here. In the future, please expect a download link on my Thoughts to the corresponding unwired::cast.


UPDATE (from Arne): Not that my good old friend Jason and his Thoughts Media has any copyrights on the word "Thought" but he used "ThoughtsCast" first for the Pocket PC Thoughts Podcast. Therefore, I think it's better to give this baby a different name to make sure we all stay unique. Not that you ask your pal tomorrow if he has listen the latest "thought::cast" and he is jumping over to Pocket PC Thoughts to get it there just to figure out you was talking about another "Thoughtcast". What else is better than unwired::cast since the::unwired's Podcast will be about unwired topics. - what else!? :-)
And yes - I already got a couple of E-Mails how to get it downloaded. Stay tuned - I'm working on that topic as well and I have something different in mind too - since we are talking about unwired::casts here! ;-)

Cheers ~ Ane

Way to go Alfredo! Great work!!! big_smile
So guys what do you think? Should we continue with cast versions of our thoughts? Reviews will not work but for thoughts it might be a cool addition!

Every feedback is welcome!

Now I have to find a way to make RSS Podcatcher distribution possible. Stay tuned, have to chat with my developer.

Ditto.  Very nicely done, Alfredo.  I am exactly the one who did not get a chance to read your entire article (just the headlines and intro) and finally got a chance to finish listening to this article.  Podcast helps in delivering the content in another convenient format and adds another dimension to this web site.  I agree we should continue to add audio format with future Thoughts articles.  I can't wait till we add video cast reviews in the future as well.  ;-)

Man, that sounds professional.

In my opinion podcasts are a flexible way getting articles. I even can hear them now in the car on my way home from work   big_smile
