To Podcast or not to Podcast?

This looks like a really old post (I mean, it's from 2006 for goodness sake). Stay for the retro vibes but be aware any information in this post is likely way out of date.

Jeremy Keith has posted a Podcast of the Carson Summit using the mp3s from Carson Workshops. He’s done this because Carson placed links to the mp3s and called them Podcasts. Whilst the usefulness of having a podcast for a knowingly limited number of files (when podcasts are more suited to regular postings) is questionable, the point Jeremy is making is that the term Podcast is being used for any mp3 download.

This is something I’ve been trying to drill into people at work. However Podcast is a buzz term and whilst inaccurately used, does tend to fire people’s imagination more.
