[nfb-talk] social media vs. podcasts or streaming

While I suppose that technically, podcasting isn't part of social media, 
I am not sure many people would find that distinction meaningful. How 
sure are you that a part of  the social media coordinator's job won't be 
making podcasts?

Is the Braille Monitor available as a podcast?  I am guessing you can 
already get it as a sound file, right? If you are already able to 
download the Braille Monitor as a sound file, then all you need to do to 
turn it into a podcast is to create an XML file describing those files 
and upload that to the same place as the sound files. Viola, podcast! 
The only difference between a collection of audio/video files and a 
podcast is that XML file.

I'd be willing to create the XML file. I have a perl script that makes 
it extremely easy.

While I know it's important for us to keep up with te latest technologies, some of us will never adopt social media, no matter how many coordinators you hire. A little while back, there was a message on one of the NFB lists asking for people willing to do some NFB related podcasting. Has anyone followed up on that? To me, this sounds  like a great idea. Maybe I'm just getting old, ane I know our resources are limited, but I would much prefer podcasts and audio streaming to social media. Incidentally, I'll be turning 70 tomorrow. Anybody have any thoughts
