LISten- The LISNews Podcast: Episode #2

This week's episode of LISten brings word of our digital world. Stories about Google, E-Books, and Amazon's Kindle are highlighted. Unique library paint jobs are also mentioned in this week's episode.

As promised in the episode, a link to tech columnist Andy Ihnatko's discussion on the Amazon Kindle is provided for listener enjoyment.

You can catch last week's episode, too, to hear more about what this podcast series is about.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 


I never get tired of hearing my name. Please, please, please consider doing a dramatic reading of my blog post about "the future of libraries" ( for an upcoming podcast. (Pleeeease!)


I like the podcast, have just finished listening to the second one. But the audio quality is not as good as others I listen too, it sounds a bit too compressed and "flat". I am not a sound engineer, but perhaps more experiences podcasters would know how to fix this to make it even better!

I will refer this to the series sound engineer for his consideration.

Even though my name wasn't mentioned, I still think this is a good podcast. I hope it lasts past the six week trial.
