I posted recently on some architecture-related podcasts... here are a few more thoughts...
- Tried listening to this podcast on enterprise portals - because I think Gotta is a bright guy in the area of portals and social software. First, how hard do you actually want people to work to listen to your content? I swear I had to go through registration like 5 times, and my lucky reward was getting to listen through embedded Windows Media Player. I'm thinking about the basics here - podcast, RSS feed, MP3s, etc. - you would be surprised how many more listeners you get if you free up the content a little. (Note: these comments are directed at CIO Talk Radio, not Mike.) If someone out there had the patience to get through this, please comment and let me know if I missed enough to go back to it.
- Maybe this stretches the bounds of both "architecture" and "podcast" but one of my favorite books is available as a stream or download for free. How cool is that!! I'm going to listen again. What a great thing to be involved in - I would love to read a chapter of Code: Version 2.0 when that comes out. Note that you can contribute to that book.
- Another Burton Group Inflection Point - this time on Skype. Actually a good technical breakdown of the Skype network architecture, things like SuperNodes. A good listen for enterprise folks. Curious why they only let 1 outside person review and publicly report on their encryption practices? You are fully Web 2.0, Skype, and transparency is the name of the game.
- More RedMonk Radio - episodes 4 and 5 - always good. I am working a podcast idea with these folks that will hopefully come to fruition in the next few weeks... stay tuned.
