Experiment 20090615

A simple podcast player. Makes use of jw player from longtail video.Β  Also experiments with linking to jquery ui resources hosted at googleapis.Β  Using CDNs for commonly used javascript and css resources is cool because a) you don’t have to host it yourself, b) people’s browsers cache it, so it loads much more quickly, and c) google knows what the hell they’re doing, so they serve it in the best way possible.Β  The only down side is that if their site ever gets bogged down or they go offline, you’re kinda screwed.Β  Still, Google is pretty safe to bet on, so we web developers do.
