Podcasts and Pings

Podcasts are pretty cool, though I haven't really found the killer app for me yet. Since I don't own an iPod, I don't really have that available to listen to the casts on. So, for the most part, I just have to listen to them on my computer. Not always what I want to do, to be honest, because I'm usually busy with other things.

For that reason, a podcast that does work for me is the audio commentary podcast for Battlestar Galacticca. It's like having the comment track on a DVD. Nice! And it's something I would use--since I'd just play it off the laptop as I'm watching the show, it doesn't distract me from what I'm doing. Instead, it adds to it.

In other news, notice the "Popular content" block on the lower left? That's my Drupal statistics module. It displays the most popular content nodes and, on the backend, shows me all the referrers, etc. you'd see in a normal log. Best discovery: search "parsons physical computing" on Google or MSN Live. That's me at the top! And, most exciting, if you google me, I actually make the front page for the first time ever! Screw you, all you 10 million other Mike Edwardses!
