Re: Podcasting Predictions
- Excellent post. And I have to say I agree with all of it.
Though I will add that I think the tools, systems, platforms and
devices available for people to listen to, or produce podcasts will
improve and evolve dramatically.
Also, I think that people will accept the 'podcasting' is a multimedia
audio podcasts. video podcasts. interactive podcasts. dictacasting.
I would also bet on there being the tools (and xml formats) available
for time-based annotation (via opml or rss extensions) for notes,
search, seek and synchronisation.
Have a GREAT Christmas EVERYONE!! And let's look forward to next
Christmas, when the 'pod-o-spere' will have evolved another year...
anyone got any predictions on what next year's predictions will be?
