Ubuntu and podcasting

I just recieved a Google alert, containing some Ubuntu stuff, and it was an article about a teenager broadcasting his own radio program. It’s actually here I am introduced to a term called “podcasting”. Wikipedia defines podcasting as:

… making audio files (most commonly in MP3 format) available online in a way that allows software to automatically download the files for listening at the user’s convenience. The word “podcasting” is a portmanteau of the words iPod and broadcasting. A podcast is like an audio magazine subscription: a subscriber receives regular audio programs delivered via the internet, and they can listen to them at their leisure.”

I myself was always interested in Internet broadcasting, so this has my interest. Here are some useful links on this topic:

Isn’t it strange? I recieved a news regarding Ubuntu Linux, but I went completely other roads and actually found out about new buzzword called “podcasting”. Fascinating.
