Appcasting

by Jonathan Deutsch

Fraser Speirs has a good idea:

Podcasting is, technologically, nothing more than using the enclosure field of an item in an RSS 2.0 feed to deliver the URL of an MP3 file which your aggregator then downloads for you.

I was thinking about setting up a development blog for FlickrExport when it occurred to me that you could use exactly the same feature of RSS 2.0 to deliver updates to an application.

I think I’ll set this up for HyperEdit, and perhaps some of my other endeavors.
