@phel @wolfie This is correct. Podcasting isn't about what's in the content of the audio, it's about the way in which it's distributed. It's about the particular combination of downloadable audio files and openly-syndicated RSS feeds.
It's like how there are a zillion ways to send text-based content around the Internet, but only one method using a certain category of software configured to automatically interoperate among users' devices in a particular manner can properly be called "email."

Most minimalists seem to be "extremist minimalists" (extreminimalists?).
But #minimalism is not about owning less than X things, it is about not taking part in excessive consumption just for the sake of consumption! Its about getting _real_ value out of things rather than having lots of things with little value.
My daughter read about making butter by shaking cream and was very excited about the idea, so we tried it this morning.
I've never done it before, it's fun! There's a really weird moment where you have a jar of whipped cream and it seems like no matter how hard you shake nothing is happening, the whipped cream is just stuck to the sides of the jar and not moving...
then suddenly it separates all at once into a solid chunk of butter and a liquid puddle of buttermilk, it’s like magic!
Possibly the nerdiest argument I've ever heard is claiming that #haskell programmers should stop calling <*> the "TIE fighter" and start calling it the "TIE advanced".
I love it!
