Synchronicity
Pocket Sized Podcast #60

Scott is hoarse, but the synchronicity of the podcast team is evident with the contributions of others this episode.

First Scott complains just a little about various sync issues with Downcast and Evernote.

Suzé publishes a design for getting your own e-zine out there using an iPad e-zine creation tool called Deezine.

John Nemo interviews Julia about what it’s like to be young in a world of powerful portable devices.

Peter proves there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like Firefox Home.

Feed Me, Seymour!

Loyal listeners might recall that a few episodes ago, around 41 or 43 or so, Tim helped me switch my podcast feed over from MyMac.com to this site (PocketSizedPodcast.com). It worked seamlessly for anyone subscribed in iTunes, not so well for those with other podcatchers such as Downcast. That wasn’t Tim’s fault or mine, it’s just that without being able to set up custom HTTP responses on the server, there was no way to accurately redirect it for anyone outside of iTunes subscribers.

Well, I’m at it again. I’m changing my RSS feed for the podcast to a Feedburner one. Using Feedburner will give me a much better grasp on what listeners are doing and how the podcast is faring, and quite frankly, I should have set it up on Feedburner when I switched from having the podcast located on MyMac.com to this site. It’s not like I haven’t used Feedburner in the past for other podcasts. And yet, I failed to do so. Doh.

Never being one to let one mistake stop another, I’m going to yank the carpet out from you again. If you’re an iTunes type, you should not lose any episodes. If you’re not subscribed to this podcast in iTunes, the podcast RSS feed Url is changing and you must make sure your podcast feed gets updated. The new URL is:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/PocketSizedPodcast

That feed is active now, and will work just fine for any podcatcher, including iTunes if you enter it manually there. Please update it to that feed and you’ll never miss a podcast again. Ever! Unless the world ends and I can’t get a podcast out because I fell into the center of the earth. In that case, you’re on your own. Hope you have lots of water, good boots, and a decent rifle.

Still confused? The Subscribe! page should explain everything.
