Over on VentureBlog, David Hornik talks about how Fred Wilson is using podcasting to receive pitches from startups - the elevator pitches. This is a very cool idea. Basically people tag a pitch with a del.icio.us tag "fred'selevatorpitch" and then he subscribes to the RSS feed. That way the pitches end up on his media device, ready for listening when he has the time.

I like that a lot. It could be used for so many other things too...

Delving deeper though, del.icio.us rss feeds don't support enclosures, so I'm not sure how this works at all. Maybe some podcatchers will download content specified in the link tag?

That aside, it's still a cool idea.
