Oxford American Dictionary Word of the Year 2005: Podcast.
One response to “surprise!”
I’d say ‘podcast’ is actually the misnomer of the year. The word or more correctly Acronym of the year should have been ‘RSS’ really simple syndication
#1 it has little to do with pods.
#2 it is not casting but rather syndication of an enclosure
Whatever the world wants to call it I am fine with because finally the idea of putting an mp3 online is acceptable even if under another name. “a rose by any name…”
Special thanks for all this should go out to the infamous Dave Winer. woot! yer the best, Dave
