PODCAST / AUDIOBOOK: Trojan Horses


[ UPDATE (11/7/2004): The URL of the Podcast has changed ]

Announcing a small technological step forward for our Tech Fiction: We've turned Trojan Horses (PDF, HTML) into an mp3 Audiobook.

It's in seven separate files, since mp3 players currently lack bookmarking functionality and we thought folks might want to be able to address the book at the chapter level instead of having to search through the file.

Since this is an experiment, we have several approaches:
  • Podcast (New URL: RSS 2.0 feed with enclosures):

    An RSS 2.0 feed using Enclosures. If you have an "iPodder"-type program (special RSS readers that listen to feeds, find Enclosures, download them automatically and insert them into folders in iTunes from where the files are automatically sync'd to your iPod) you can simply point them at the Trojan Horses Podcast RSS Feed.

    You can find links to Windows, Mac and Linux tools at iPodder.org. Or, you can try the one that started it all: iPodderX.

    NOTE: to make sure this works, you need to tell your iPodder to pick up 7 enclosures. Unfortunately, most iPodder apps pick up only the latest entry. Currently we only know of jPodder that has this feature, but the iPodder.org dev team already has it on the list for the next release.


  • ZIP file containing the mp3 files (link)


  • Individual mp3's (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
