Discussions around RSS evolving into one of the fundamental building blocks of Web 2.0 are popping up everywhere. Read/Write Web has an excellent round-up of some of the posting on this topic done this week around the blogoshpere
Podblaze has published a 20 page white paper that covers how podcasting can help "generate increased brand exposure, improved product awareness, increased sales, greater online visibility and additional revenue opportunities."
Podcasting won't be right for every business of course. But businesses that do not make informed choices about what is right for their business, and don't keep up with the enormous changes as the web downshifts into Web 2.0, will find themselves being left behind.
from Podblaze' site:

Unified Studies will be (hopefully) blogging from Webvisions 2005 in Portland, July 15th! Hopefully posting by 10 am! In addition there will be other bloggers posting, and I will be linking to their posts as well.
I knew we (Unified Studies) were doing good work on our Youth Take Action web project, but I'm pleased to note great feedback continues to come in.
Our client at New Urban High School just attended an education conference in San Diego, and came back to tell me that their website was a big hit. Educators at the conference as well as course evaluators they have hired all commented that the site was the best (and best looking) implementation of Moodle they have seen yet! We integrated all the Moodle tools and courseware into a great new design, and even had lots of video integrated.
If anyone out there is thinking of giving Moodle a try, so far I'd say it's been great, and our client certainly agrees. If anyone would like to see the how the coursework is set up (it's password protected) let me know, and I'll give you access to check things out!...and of course if you need any Moodle help...email me. I'll be posting some screen shots from various sections soon as well.
