REMIDNER: Podcast in box is coming, this weekend! Chris writes —
Box Populi has come up with a free Linux installer CD that turns old footrest PCs into simple, automated podcasting devices. Operation is super simple: plug in a USB key, pontificate to heart’s delight, and unplug the key to publish out to your listeners. The device can be configured and operated with any browser. The simplicity allows anyone to podcast; luddite college professors who have never heard of RSS, pastors spreading the digital gospel of peace and love, and college radio stations intent on taking down Clear Channel.
Box Populi hosts “install-fests” to showcase the installation process. The next install-fest is in Portland, OR on the 5th of May: click for more information and to RSVP, and then get ready to put that old tower to use. “
