We should call this blogcasting

Well the term blogcasting has already been coined by the blog spot people, but blogcasting should be the term used when you create podcasts from blog posts using speech recognition technology such as what these guys from Talkr have done. I had thought about this quite a while ago. I was planning on writing a program to parse a blog’s RSS feed and use The Festival Speech Synthesis System (unix/linux) to convert the text to audio, but being the procrastinator that I am the project never got done. This seems like an amazing untapped area of podcasting. I found about Talkr over at Tipmonkies.
