Make Any Blog a Podcast

Posted by techie on April 22, 2006

I found a nice post about how someone took their blog and made it into a podcast.  Here are a few of the choices they offered:

1. Talkr files – for each full post (not comments yet) there is an mp3 audio file. This is generated automatically using Talkr (www.talkr.com). Click on the ‘Listen to this article’ link at the end of each post.
2. feed2podcast files – this produces a streaming audio file of the whole blog, in reverse chronological order. This is generated automatically using feed2podcast (www.feed2podcast.com).

Some nice options available to piggyback all this iPod and podcasting hype.

Wiki Gone Google Maps

Posted by techie on April 13, 2006

I can’t believe that someone took a wiki style and applied it to Google maps. It’s called Wikimapia and is actually quite fun to play around with. It is interesting to see what people have put on the map. I think this really could be an example of what we will be able to see in the future. Imagine driving in a car when you are sightseeing and you can have a wikimapia up telling you what everything is. Pretty cool. Just don’t show it to my dad. He’ll never work if he sees this thing.
