Video is more linkable, but audio is more portable. "What kind of story to have to tell ... or show." --Scoble. This determines the format. Funny think, I love doing podcasts (even though my podcasting rig is kinda hosed at the moment) I don't listen to them! Strange, huh?
No matter what you talk about ... you have to make it interesting.
There is a paucity of standard tags and ways of letting people know what the podcast and videos are actually about.
How do we podcast? Ah that's where the fun begins. I really like the microphone and my laptop model. I had the the iRiver and external microphone thing going, but it seems to be failing me. Regardless, it is really easy. Andru did a little sample using his Mac, Garageband, and Hipcast. On the PC I suggest Audacity (free) or Propaganda (pay, but worth it ... even though I won a free license). The question of Skype recording came up, oddly enough none of the speakers do this, but Scott and I do. He uses Pamela, I use HotRecorder.
How often? Something predictable. Be consistent (oops, that is my problem. I tend to forget for a couple weeks).
Video, where do you put it? Services, your service YouTube ... you post, they own. This is an important question for all these topics, doesn't matter if it's a blog post, podcast , or video.
Wow. I think the non-geeks in the audience brains' have exploded all over the room. Oh well.
