Meanwhile, I was testing Apple’s new iLife ’06 suite, including iWeb, a blogging and podcasting tool. I was honestly impressed and pleased with the ease of use! While paying attention to something else – podcasting with my colleagues – I was able to create a new blog, post text (w/images), photocast, podcast, and vlog (or video podcast)! All this took quite a bit less than an hour! So there is something to this, even if Apple is not exactly sticking to an industry standard RSS implementation.
You can see the results of my experiments on my new iWeb blog hosted on my personal .Mac account here.
