Corporate Podcasting

This morning my ipodder brought me three minutes of excitement and inspiration.

Gerald Buckley works for AAPG the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and he’s put together a kind of internal communication/diary announcement podcast for them. The combination of heavy technical oil speak and the funky backing track he uses can get a bit surreal, but it’s a great example of what can be done – just 3 minutes of content that (I presume) is totally tailored to the client’s need. Gerald sees it like HTML in 1995, it’s the kind of stuff that anyone could do, but people will pay to have it done for them, at least for now.

This might add some flavour to the Chicago Blogwalk discussion that’s happening in the next couple of days on blogging in corporate settings. I think it’s an interesting example of the way we might go so I’m pinging the topic exchange site to let them know.
