How about Microsoft Add Podcasts to Microsoft Download Documents

MSN and MediaBay Join Forces to Offer Audiobooks Through Newly Launched MSN Music Service

MediaBay Will Exclusively Distribute Titles From the World's Largest Publishers on MSN Music

Is this a springboard of things to come in the future?

How do we get the Microsoft Downloads RSS feeds to offer the longer documents in audio formats? I have seen many other blogs recently describing podcasts. Adam Curry records the daily source code. He also is behind ipodder. This is a method of shifting audio recordings to the ipod. Think how many more of those technical articles we could consume during our daily commutes. I wonder if Scoble could get this started with his message in a bottle to Bill Gates?
