Blogger Gives Incorrect Data About Podcasting At Microsoft

Here's something that wasn't reported very well: The Unofficial Apple Weblog: Blogcasting anyone?

What you missed about it is that internally we call it podcasting. Now, what they also missed is that I argued about this out in public with Mike Hall. I didn't like that internally we were calling EVERYTHING delivered over an RSS feed "podcasting." Even stuff that can't be played on an iPod, like video.

I'm still fighting that battle. I believe that podcasting is audio files delivered over RSS but that it's better to specifically name other things as to the type of file that gets delivered. For instance, I believe that what we do over on Channel 9 is a vlog or video blog.

But, if you followed the argument with Mike Hall and me you'll see that I lost the argument and so now I'm calling any kind of audio or video file delivered over RSS a "podcast."

Why? Cause podcasting in my mind is "Personal On Demand Casting"

So, now you see how the blogosphere gets the full story out. One source didn't do much reporting. Put a rumor out there without any real sources. And now I get to have my say.

You, the reader, gets to triangulate in on the truth. You can ask more questions. Get more information. And, I might need to come back with a clarification post later on.

Why? Well, we're still arguing it out, but inside and outside. Some groups call what they do "screencasts" (cause they are doing Flash videos of what they are doing on screen). Other groups call them blogcasts, but that term hasn't been accepted outside of a few small groups yet.

By the way, we have a podcasting alias internally. We don't have a blogcast or screencast alias.

Also, at TechED there was a video crew that did a bunch of video blogs. They called themselves the "podcasting crew." They even gave me a shirt that said Microsoft TechED Podcasting Crew.
