TWOdW podcast today, open source zone editor Mark Cappel was standing in a pod at JavaOne in San Francisco, while dW editor-and-chef Michael O'Connell was in a house in Taipei. I, of course, was in my closet at home. So, think about it. Mark was manning a "pod" at JavaOne, meaning he was standing in this little thing talking to passersby. And when he joined our recording it could be said that he was truly "podcasting." Now Michael and I were not in pods of any kind, so we were not podcasting, but merely casting to iPods, or even casting to whatever people are listening to us on, which doesn't have the same ring as podcasting. The listener will be receiving, or listening, in Mark's case, to an actual podcast, living inside our larger, shall we say, house and closetcast. If they're listening on an iPod, I guess it is a podcast either way. But if they're listening on something else -- say a PC or some other mp3 player -- then the only podcasted part of it is from Mark, while the rest of it must be labeled as a generic, unpodded cast, sort of like Lucerne canned peas, which, of course, have been depodded. These are important things to sort out, don't you think?
