Network Mast During Hiatus

LISTen: An Podcast -- Episode #59

Let's try out a different approach to show posts this week. Timings are approximate. Related links are interleaved. Due to length this is broken so as to not take up the entire main page which requires one to click "read more". Readers and listeners seeing this via RSS or a FeedBurner e-mail subscription are encouraged to visit LISNews itself to get the show break-down as well as the related links.

A LISTen Special: Is The Cloud Dissipating?

In this special edition of LISTen: The Podcast one finds a chat with Blake Carver talking about creating a Drupal site as well as discussion of implications arising from recent changes on the Web 2.0 frontier. An audio news release from the United States Postal Service is presented so as to show another example of that communications form for libraries seeking to innovate in PR. LISTen is available to libraries who want to take a practice shot at such before approaching their local media outlets.
