HOSTS, please check your TalkShoe imbedded Widgets and Badges to be sure they are currently working! There have been several reports from hosts who have found that the Widgets and Badges they have imbedded in their web page is not working today.

This appears to be occurring with Widgets and Badges which were created and inserted prior to August 20, 2010. Widgets and Badges created before this date use a third party protocol provided by Clear Spring and it has been announced that Clear Spring will no longer support that capability. As a result of that the TalkShoe Technical Team redesigned the Widgets and Badges so that they don’t use Clear Spring in August of this year. Therefore, if your Widget or Badge was deployed prior to August 20, 2010, it should be replaced.

Replace those old Widgets and Badges by going to your TalkShoe Show Page and clicking the Widgets and Badges link on the right side of the page. This will take you to a page where you can choose a format and obtain the code that should be imbedded in to your web page.
If you have any questions send an email to support@talkshoe.com or go to www.talkshoesupport.com and view the video which describes imbedded Widgets and Badges.

Thank you for your continued use and support of the TalkShoe system!

Kind regards,
The TalkShoe Technical Team

For the love of podcasting

Mark Hopkins writes about how relevant and powerful online audio continues to be on Mashable today:
“Of course Mashable Conversations listeners (and most Mashable readers) are pretty familiar with our love for the audio format, but there’s still a fair amount of naysayers out there who Internet video is killing the radio star … It isn’t that we think one form is superior to the other - in fact, we’re pretty in love with both forms of Internet media entertainment.”
