Is there a shortage of consonants that I'm unaware of? In the last 24 hours I've written about Transcribr, , and now Pluggd.
Pluggd sounds cool though. It's hard to tell exactly what it is because it's in pre-launch right now, but Alexander Castro - the guy behind Amazon's Mechanical Turk - says that it's a community podcasting tool that goes well beyond Podshow or anything else out there.
Currently in private tests, Pluggd is compiling podcasts from 37,000 content providers -- more than twice as many as competitor PodShow, Castro said. It does this by automatically ``crawling'' the Web for RSS feeds and then determining which ones relate to podcasts, unlike other services that require podcasters to submit their shows to an online directory.
Pluggd is accepting applications to be part of the beta. I've put my name in and am anxiously awaiting my invite.
