Another walk (well it starts off with a bus ride!) this time from Chelsea to Victoria Station
As before there is an accompanying flickr photoset at http://www.flickr.com/photos/lloyd-davis with the tag podwalk003.
I’m also trying out the “Liberated Syndication” podcast storage facilility at www.libsyn.com which gives me 250mb of space and unlimited bandwidth for just more than a fiver a month (thanks to the weak dollar) Let me know if there’s any noticable difference in download times or reliability.
If you’d like to send me your own audio comment you can do so at lloyd DOT davis AT gmail DOT com
Take another stroll with me, this time through the City of London where I set off with an idea of where I’m going that soon turns out to be wrong!
Photos to accompany the walk are among my photos at flickr in the podwalk002 photoset.
After Soho to Westminster proved popular yesterday, I did another, shorter, walk today from London Waterloo, across Hungerford Bridge to Charing Cross, chatting to myself as I went.
I’m experimenting with taking pictures as I go – particularly to find the best way of sharing them. I’ve put them up on flickr with the first picture taken at 4 minutes into the audio and you can click along if you’re at your computer or check them out at another time if you’re listening while on the move yourself.
I’d like to know if this works, and if not where it falls down.
I’ve also put the photos in a flickr set that points back here.
So yesterday I was going from my office in Soho down to a meeting in Westminster, and rather than a boring bus trip or complicated tube journey, I gave myself a little extra time and walked down Dean St, turning left into Old Compton St, through Moor St and over Cambridge Circus, down Charing Cross Road, through St Martin’s Place into Trafalgar Square, down into Whitehall, right through Parliament Square to my destination in Victoria St.
Hey, but why have I told you all that, you can listen to it in glorious, if traffic-noisy mp3 right here: Soho to Westminster
Though of course if you’re really smart, you’ll already have got it through RSS 2.0 *with Enclosures*
[update]… or not, there seems to be some plugin conflict going on and my rss2.0 feed isn’t rebuilding. investigating, but it’s saturday so may have to wait.
[later]OK, found a workaround, should be ok now.
So after an afternoon getting the gospel according to Adam, my inner critic folded for just long enough for me to record my first Perfect Path Podcast.
You can get it in mp3 format from here – The first post always sucks!
The extent of my show notes is – The first page always sucks; Meeting Adam yesterday; We’ll see how all of this goes; Gotta work on signing-off (bigtime) and adding some music.
I’m also seeing how MT-Enclosures works out – there should be an enclosure now in http://www.perfectpath.co.uk/index.xml but I think I have to create a new category of Podcasts to make sure it pings audio.weblogs.com
Please do leave comments or e-mail me – like it says in the title, it does suck, but I now know stuff I didn’t know before, and I’d really like to hear how you think it could be better too.
