Trying out uploading a movie file

This is a 3 minute movie demonstrating how to create a YouTube account and upload videos:

Hey, it DID work!

I'm surprised and impressed. It worked on the very first try. Sometime later I'll post information about how to CREATE the mp3 file (it involved a free download of Audacity, and a free download of a file entitled LAME mp3 encoder). Then all you need is an inexpensive microphone (if your computer doesn't have a built-in microphone) and you are set to create and post your podcasts. Then people can add you to their RSS feed aggregator, such as Google Reader, and get all your latest podcasts!

Trying out blogs for podcasting

I've been looking for a quick way to post podcasts and heard that a UThink blog would work for this. I'll try it out shortly to see if it works.
