Podcast on the Fly

Ian Miller, who screws around with me on the Acmenoise website that I use to find bands for my podcast cooked up a really cool feature. At Mp3.com we had a thing called Notify Me, which was an opt in email product that was positioned opposite some of what RealNetworks was doing with RMP files. What Ian added to Acme is a podcast link to each artist page. If you click on the link it generates an XML feed that you can plug into your aggregator of choice. Then, anytime the artist adds new music to the site, it automatically gets downloaded to your player.
