Jesse has created a podcast feed containing all the stories from my collection Overclocked — these all appeared on my podcast, but not in a neatly packaged form like this. Here’s the feed. Thanks, Jesse!

    Awesome! I’ve been trying to do something like this with a few of your stories. Specifically, with 0wnz0red, When Sysadmins Ruled the World, and Human Readable.

    I was simply trying to get them all to load in to my iPod in a usable manner… and the best way I’ve come up with so far is to download them all manually from archive.org, then edit all the ID3 tags to have the title as the Album, you as the Artist, and the genre be Podcast with track numbers that corelate with the part #’s. This let me load them on my iPod properly, organized so that each part started after the previous one finished.

    I still need to make them bookmarkable, because I keep losing my position when I stop them. I know how to do this in iTunes. I know that any podcast media is usually bookmarkable, but when you load the mp3’s manually in to iTunes, they lose that ability, because the iTunes isn’t aware that these are from podcasts. I like the idea of creating separate feeds for each story, but ultimately, it would be cooler to just have the mp3’s tagged and modified to be bookmarkable… then they’re more portable.

    Thanks again for all the stories you read on your podcast. I’ve bought more books from you in the last year than any other author, and it’s likely because it’s so easy to get in to your work when it’s readily available online. I still prefer to hold a book in my hand, partially because I know I’m supporting an artist I appreciate, but also because of the portability. It will be interesting to see how things change when portable eBook readers drop in price, and rise in quality. Is it possible that your stance on DRM and online distribution will change, if most books end up being read on ebook style, portable devices in the future? Personally, I just can’t afford to drop 600+ on one of those right now… but someday I will. I just hope I can find good works from a wide variety of authors when that day comes.
