Podcasting, a portmanteau of Apple's "iPod" and
"broadcasting", is a method of publishing files to the Internet,
allowing users to subscribe to a feed and receive new files
automatically by subscription, usually at no cost. It first became
popular in late 2004, used largely for audio files (Wikipedia.org)

A weblog (usually shortened to blog, but occasionally spelled web
log) is a web-based publication consisting primarily of periodic articles
(normally in reverse chronological order). Although most early
weblogs were manually updated, tools to automate the maintenance
of such sites made them accessible to a much larger population, and
the use of some sort of browser-based software is now a typical aspect
of "blogging". (Wikipedia.org)
A wiki (pronounced , or ; see Pronunciation below) is a web
application that allows users to add content, as on an
Internet forum, but also allows anyone to edit the content.
Wiki also refers to the collaborative software used to create
such a website (see Wiki software). (Wikipedia.org)
