Simply Digital Podcast

I'm very excited to announce that my friend and fellow blogger Michael Ashby and his friend Analog Dave, have now launched a new podcast called Simply Digital.simplydigital.jpg

Their idea: create a weekly podcast explaining technology for non-technical people, who so often find the digital world a place geared specifically for the tech-saavy. Each week, Mike and Dave discuss a topic and break it down into easily digestible bits, in plain, non-geeky English. Very cool!

The first episode is on Podcasts, explaining to listeners what podcasting is, how it works and why it might be useful. They also cover various tools to manage and hear podcasts with, and share experiences they've had discovering and integrating podcasts into their own lives.

What's nice is, the Simply Digital site offers all podcasts embedded right on the site, so visitors can hear each episode without needing to get wrapped up in Podcasts, syndication, RSS and so on. I also love their extensive show notes for each show in structured form, with links galore.

Simply Digital's approach is a perfect way to help regular people understand and make better use of technology. I know many smart, non-technical friends who would love learning and applying technology — if someone would take the time and effort to explain it in a jargon-free way. That's where Simply Digital is a perfect fit.

Mike, you're killing me here man with your blog. Everytime I check, I find something interesting, or useful, or in some way enriching to my life. Just finished putting my Sufjan Stevens album into iTunes when you tip me off to Simply Digital. How am I ever going to repay you for all the great things that you bring to my attentiion?

ps Loved your reactions to the recent TdeF and all the s**t that has since hit the proverbial fan. Stay well.

Don, great to hear you're benefitting from the latest posts here � you've really made my day and that's re-payment enough. :-)

Michael, glad to support the podcast. It's great content and much needed for those who want to learn but are scared away by jargon-speaking geeks. I wish you the best of luck!
