SciFi + Tech = Sweet

I continue to be amazed by the things the SciFi Channel is doing with the Battlestar Galactica web site.

First show runner Ron Moore started a blog there. Then the first episode was made available to watch streaming. Now, there’s podcasting! You can download commentaries by Moore in mp3 form to watch along with the show.

The first podcast/commentary is up for episode 9, which aired in the U.S. last night (I think). Episode 10 was one of my favorites in the season, and these commentaries are probably enough to get me to watch it again.

I may have berated the SciFi Channel in the past for their programming choices, but they get an A+ in their handling of BSG.

I’m still not a fan of the term ‘podcasting’, but I really can’t come up with something better either. Not all mp3 players are iPods.
