OK, answers.

1 and 2:

I would suggest that you use a web based RSS agrigator.  The one I use and
is very very accessible is bloglines:

This allows you to subscribe to RSS feeds and read them in your browser.


As for question 3, head over to the digital mediacast experiment:

And you will get tons of answers on these topics.

Hello Listers!

I was asked to come up with some good questions, so I will try to be useful,


1.  RSS feeds are anathema to me; why?  because I cannot determine how to
get an aggregator, that will not do something to my computer system--The
free RSS Reader seems to need the Windows system to incorporate the Dot Net
thingy; I have been told by  the sighted tech, that I work with on these
things, that I probably "Don't want to go there!"

2. Jonathan has an audio explanation, on his website, wherein he gives a
pretty good explanation of what RSS is, but, he then tells the listener that

he uses the News Gator aggregator, with the Outlook E mail system, not
Outlook Express.  So, I am not familiar with Outlook; does that mean I
should stop what I am doing, learn Outlook and get the News Gator, or, as I
was advised by Woody Ana Dresner, use Bloglines and "fuh git aboutit!"

3.  Tell me which podcasts will lead me to doing my own, in teaching the
where's and why for's of microphones, editing, where to "turn in your work"
and how?

There, that's 3, for starters-- if they aren't good enough, then enlighten
me as to what passes for good, on this enlightened list, OK?

Oh, I know-- Chris K., what in the hell is Bugzilla-- Nano Godzilla or what?

Also, 4.How does one capture a URL, in RSS?
