No, not aliens under the beds, but science fiction PodCasts.
Is this the first step in a raising of the technology game in the online science fiction field?
SFSite.com has just launched what may be the first dedicated science fiction PodCast feeds over at http://www.sfsite.com/depts/podcast.xml.
For those of you new to this stuff, this is audio-content files flagged in XML, mainly intended for use on iPods and all the other MP3 players. Could be the new new thing, we are told.
Great if you want to stick a mini-science fiction radio station set-up in your back-room alongside the frigging web server. Yeah right, that's what we thought too.
No doubt SciFi.com will be following in their footsteps with a million dollar budget any day soon.
