This week's episode may seem truncated perhaps. Due to continuing work emergencies faced at the host's day job, a thirty minute episode was not possible. This week's episode featured a chat with Blake Carver about his new project, LISWire. The six month anniversary of LISTen was also noted.

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #18

This week's episode was an attempt at recording live with a chance for listener participants. Some times it helps, though, to remember to actually hit record on the audio recorder even if the live stream itself is recording. The recording of both takes can be found at: http://lisnews.org/node/29852. This week's episode was a live discussion of bridging the digital divide from the perspective of the United States.

The episode served as a test for libraries who wanted to see how such technology could be utilized without investing a ton of money. While not easy, this might provide a practical example for consideration.

Recognizing that Computers in Libraries 2008 just ended, this episode of LISTen brings a little lighter fare.

The episode finishes off with an audio essay entitled, "Define 'Anglosphere'."

A live segment recording session is planned for the morning of April 19th at 10 AM Eastern Daylight Time. A time zone converter is available online to help determine what the time is where you are for participating. Further details will be posted later in the week.

Donations to support LISTen are appreciated. Goods are available for purchase through Lulu to support podcast production. A recent blog post by the show's writer/presenter helps explain some of the behind-the-scenes matters in producing the podcast.

Live Call-in Segment Postponed

The live call-in segment for LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast is postponed until later this month. With pressures coming off of PLA and heading right into Computers in Libraries I am finding that this week is not good timing in terms of having an available audience. This matter is not dead but merely on hold.
