LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #24

This week's episode brings an interview with Revision3 CEO Jim Louderback about a recent Denial of Service incident they suffered. Another installment of Tech for Techies talks about lessons learned from the Revision3 incident and begins a discussion about the need to consider infrastructure. Although the production team is aware of the incident at Softlayer that not only affected multiple LISHost clients not to mention the Volokh Conspiracy group blog, this episode is not covering that.

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #23

This week's episode, while having somewhat of an AM radio feel due to the compression happening, brings an interesting mix. Interviews with librarians K. G. Schneider and Kathryn Greenhill are included in the episode. A commentary about Twitter comes in near the end with a unique suggestion that perhaps OCLC should buy Twitter out. Even though posted slightly late, this Memorial Day weekend edition of LISTen has plenty packed inside.

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #21

This week's episode has a bit of a Rod Serling inspired feel to it. As the podcast is not a video one, we can control neither the horizontal nor the vertical. We can present a different look at things, though. The podcast opens with a zeitgeist check by the podcast audio production engineer. An interview with Blake Carver follows with the fifth installment of Tech for Techies soon thereafter. The podcast audio production engineer wrapped up the episode. As to the nature of any potential Ghoulardi-inspired podcast, the production team has no known plans. To contact Stephen via Skype, the button below may be useful: Skype Me™!

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.
