LISTen Special Edition -- The Intersection of Librarianship and Politics

Originally the interview found in this special episode was supposed to air in the next regular episode. Being overtaken by events is never fun. As such the interview is being released in a special edition now.

Dr. Stanley Kurtz made an attempt to seek access to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge collection of documents at University of Illinois-Chicago. After initially being granted access, such was taken away. With conflicting answers Dr. Kurtz wrote a piece for National Review Online.

The production team contacted both the University of Illinois-Chicago as well as Dr. Kurtz. Dr. Kurtz responded to the request for an interview. The only contact from the University of Illinois-Chicago was to be told there was no statement and no comment.

In a case where we're left with only more questions, the interview is presented for consideration. The audio engineer's question that he requested be put is: was this incompetence or a bungled covering up?

Talk To LISNews: How Are You Using Web 2.0?

Last Week we asked "Why Do You Stick With Twitter?"

This week we're assembling audio answers from as many people as possible to another new question:

"How Are You Using Web 2.0?"

The deadline for answering either by leaving a voice mail or sending an MP3 file is 0700 UTC on August 24th. Talk To LISNews remains an audio project so while text-based replies are appreciated they are not likely to be read on-air.

To leave an answer to be included in the podcast, there are a few ways you can go.
If you are in the US, you can call 646-495-9201, enter extension 61340, and leave your answer.

If you are outside the US, or just want to use your computer, you can upload an MP3 file using the upload tool located on the podcast page http://lisnews.org/podcast/.

Be sure to tell us who you are and where you're calling from. You need not provide us with your entire bio, just something simple is fine if you’d like to remain private: "Hi, this is Blake calling from western New York and I I'm using Web 2.0..."

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode 32

This week's episode brings a mix bound by the thread of "borders". The program this week brings an interview with Amy Kudwa, a spokesperson at the United States Department of Homeland Security, as well as a commentary looking at how history plays a role in the way we look at borders.

The engineer put forward a new question for folks to answer. That question is: "What is Web 2.0?" The deadline for answering either by leaving a voice mail or sending an MP3 file is 0700 UTC on August 24th. Talk To LISNews remains an audio project so while text-based replies are appreciated they are not likely to be read on-air.

This week we're assembling audio answers from as many people as possible to a new question: "Why do you stick with Twitter?" Replies are needed by 0700 UTC on Sunday, August 10, 2008.

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #31

Interviews!

Yes, there are interviews this week. We rarely are able to fit in three but we did this week. First up was author David Michael Slater who discussed his writing career. Following Slater was the CEO of search engine Mahalo, Jason Calacanis. Calacanis talked about his company as well as the search engine field. Rounding out our session of interviews was Tim Darlington, Digital Services Manager at the library of Massey University. Darlington spoke about Massey University being the first of the academic institutions in New Zealand to have its library adopt a discovery layer such as Encore from Innovative Interfaces.

The close to the podcast notes that further answers to the question about choosing librarianship are no being sought. The answers received will be presented by the program's engineer next week. The new question posed was: "Why do you stick with Twitter?" Replies are needed by 0700 UTC on Sunday, August 10, 2008. Folks outside the United States wishing to provide an MP3 recorded answer can use the drop.io powered tool below:

drop.io: simple private sharing

Folks within the United States can also use that tool in addition to being able to call 646-495-9201 and entering when prompted extension 61340. Materials can also be sent as an attachment via e-mail to erielookingproductions@drop.io. A link to Blake's post about how the process of replying to the question is shown below.
