Today I was happy to chat (via Skype) with ClickCaster boss, Scott Converse.
A nice man (He is not a guy anymore, but he is still young ;) ) who manage a new venture to make podcast online in a very simple way, CklickCaster. I have tested it since many weeks for my Italian blog, Pandemia and I did a Pandecast (feed).
Scott is a very kind man. For a blog addicted like me, it was good to know that sometimes a one to one conversation (for strategic reasons) could be better than a corporate blog.
I invite You all to try ClickCaster. Next weeks will be full of news, till the end of the year.

I am one of the few luckies who can try Riya, photo search engine.
From the alpha invite email:
Be nice! Okay, you can be nasty if you must, but remember that this is the ‘soalphaithurts’ phase, which means that we want to learn and grow and change with your feedback. And, please remember, we are buggy, inconsistent and unstable (makes ya wanna jump right in, don’t it?). If something sucks, we’ll work really hard to make sure it doesn’t suck forever.
Please be aware that because we are in alpha, there is a slight chance that the transition to beta will result in all of your data being flushed. We will do everything we can to prevent this, but I just want you to be aware that this could happen.
The initial processing of your photo sets to Riya will be pretty CPU intensive (especially if you have a large data set). We suggest you let it run overnight or while you are similarly away from your computer. Generally, every GIG you have of photos will take 4 hours to process. It is recommended that you upload at least 1,000 photos to get the full impact of the recognition.
