Ars Electronica is offering free subscriptions to podcasts of the proceedings of this year's symposium conferences.

What are podcasts?

Podcasts allow users to subscribe RSS-Feeds of files containing audio or other media content. A podcasting client running in the background of your portable device periodically checks for updates and, if new content is available, downloads it automatically to your device (ideally, directly to your MP3 player). more

How do I subscribe to podcasts?

To automatically receive these content updates, you need a podcasting client. Once the software is installed, all you have to do is copy the URL below into the program.


If you're using an RSS feed reader, you'll indeed be regularly updated about the availability of new content but you'll still have utilize the link sent along with the update to manually download the MP3 file to your MP3 player. A podcatcher performs this task automatically.

What if I don't have either a podcatcher or an RSS feed reader?

Even if you don't have any of the software necessary to subscribe to podcasts, you can still download the individual transmissions of the proceedings of this year's symposium conferences directly from the website as MP3 files.
