Dave Winer invented RSS. And Adam Curry could be considered the first (maybe second) podcaster. They are thought of as the (sometimes warring) fathers of podcasting.

here's dave winer linking to us:

and adam curry says he is going to contribute a book. or books! ... listen to his podcast he goes nuts about how great librivox is! (dec 30 show)

hmm... in the Adam Curry cast I found it closer to minute 13 ....

Sounds like he's already recording a series ... will be interesting to see if he brings them over to us when he's completed.... I hope so =)

Yup, best thing since sliced bread... :) And he did promise, didn't he, that he's let us have whatever he's working on.
