Hello, Happy Christmas All.

I am pleased to announce hCast short for Hypermedia Podcast

hCast[1] combines two microformats, hAtom[2] and Media Info (hMedia)[3] 
to create a single distribution format suitable for any hypermedia 
content. The output of the hCast format is RSS2[4] + MRSS[5] extensions 
which can be syndicated and subscribed to using a media player such as 
iTunes[6] or Adobe Media Player[7].
