oh..this now sounds like 3 question rolled into one.. I think you also need to state how large the Mp3 file you will accept ..

And why are you doing podcasts? Nobody listens to them.

Some liked the first podcast... but it's obvious podcasts aren't for everyone...

I use ReplayRadio to turn dozens of BBC Radio 4 and BBC7 shows into MP3 files that I "self-podcast" every week. My Philadelphia commutes are a much more entertaining journey now.

And yes, I do listen to a handful of real podcasts. eg garethjones.tv/

it probably was 4 or 5 years ago when for the first time i actually saw the internet and what it was... google was the start up page for my browser and that's the way i first discover it.

I discovered Google while it was still running under the Stanford domain.

The thing that nobody mentions anymore is that Google was the first to make the default query AND and not OR.

It was a briliant move. Nothing to do with fancy patented algorithms but sheer common sense.

At the beginning they had at the bottom of the SERPS links to the same query at all major search engines.

I mainly used AltaVista and sometimes Hotbot. Also SavvySearch

I liked the last one. This question I'm not really sure on.

Wait. I remember being in freaking LOVE with C4 (now dead) but when I became more internet-knowing (about two years ago) I switched to Google. Ask Jeeves was pretty fun too, but only because of all the hidden things that are now gone (along with Jeeves). google.com/search?q=ask+jeeves ...

I don't have the time to do audio, but essentially I first heard of Google from a non-digital source: a NY Times article detailing the writer's experience of it. Back then Google was still stamped "beta" (has it ever gotten out of it?) and the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button was an oft-cited feature. And it was lower on the Evilness Scale.

Unfortunently I can't listen to podcasts because I'm over 90% deaf.

But look at the bright side... I am not alone, there are more than 800 million fellow deaf and hard-of-hearing people around the world who will never be able to hear or understand podcasts.

I was looking up info on red tide in 6th grade (5 school years ago, in oct-dec of 2000) for an essay. Yahoo wasn't giving me anything very good. My teacher said she saw someone using google, so i tried it and the first result was good enough for me to use it for my whole paper.
