Podcasting Reader’s Comments — The Pilotless Drone

I heard this on NPR the other day and it was in my head all day, so I decided to make a post about it. The San Francisco Chronicle allows voice comments on their articles, and an irate reader called up complaining about redundant terminology used to describe pilotless aircrafts. The Chronicle plays the comments as mini-podcasts on their site. Someone remixed the pilotless drone comment into a catchy little tune that is now amassing thousands of hits on youtube. It’s an example of Web 2.0 at its finest.
