This is the second episode of the StackOverflow podcast, wherein Joel and I discuss the following:
- Why have a podcast at all? What's the point?
- A discussion about some the podcasts Joel listens to: John Dvorak, Adam Curry.
- StackOverflow podcast transcription wiki courtesy of FogBugz
- New RSS feed at blog.stackoverflow.com, with podcast specific RSS feed courtesy of podpress.
- Podcast feed submitted at iTunes, PodCast Alley, Yahoo Podcasts and Podcast Ready.
- Sound quality concerns (we're working on it).
- Why we require audio submissions for questions.
We also answered the following listener questions, with a lot of peripheral discussion on related topics:
- Nathan Stohlmann: How do we plan to keep religious discussions from happening on stackoverflow? will we provide a way to show implementations in multiple languages?
- Matt Youell: How will we handle spam or reblogged content from stackoverflow? What about licensing issues with user-generated content?
- Andrew Davis: How will we prevent stackoverflow quality from diminishing over time as the site becomes more popular?
- Andre Bluehs: Should I learn C++?
If you'd like to submit a question to be answered in our next episode, record an audio file (90 seconds or less) and mail it to email@example.com.
