LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #58

Not only is this episode longer than usual, it is a bit more varied relative to topical matter.

Tony Millett, a member of LIANZA's Copyright Taskforce and a spokesperson for the association, spoke to LISTen about the unique copyright situation arising in New Zealand. Joshua Ferraro, Chief Executive Officer of LibLime, spoke to LISTen about the new biblios.net service launched by his company. Due to an equipment failure that interview was partially truncated although the surviving part is aired in the podcast. The final interview was with Andrew Breitbart, the owner of Breitbart.com, where there was discussion about the creators of their mediums of expression libraries care for.

The podcast wraps up with an abbreviated Linux report.
