The simple nature of podcasting and Really Simple Syndication (RSS) belies the power for change embodied in them, either singly or in tandem. On the surface, podcasting is merely the recording of an audio file in MP3 format for sharing on the Internet, an MP3 player or some other device; this chapter covers the history and technical aspects of that process. Podcasting and the RSS feeds that keep consumers of podcasting connected to the source are examined as part of a larger movement in computer mediated collaboration that centers on mobility, immediacy, and interactivity. Podcasting, as a personal tool or an organizationally managed one is examined in terms of types of podcasts, their current applications and future trends that can be anticipated in their use..
