LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #80 -- Low Bandwidth Version

Welcome to the finale for the first series of LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast. This episode kicks off with a look at the zeitgeist on LISNews over the past week. Profile America makes its final appearance in this series of LISTen. After that there is an interview with Jean-Baptiste Kempf, chairman of the non-profit behind the VideoLAN project. Following that is a chat with Dan Messer about "@alasecrets" and "@alasecrets2009" on Twitter. Over the course of that chat it was announced that Messer is now Interim Coordinator of the LISNews Netcast Network as of the posting of this episode.

After the first two interviews, the podcast then turns to talking to Robert Spencer. Although originally slated to speak at ALA Annual 2009 on Sunday at a panel, entitled "Perspectives on Islam: Beyond the Stereotyping", Spencer found his invitation yanked. We spoke to him about what he was going to say and also his take on what happened with the now-cancelled panel.

The episode wraps up with a valedictory address by the presenter.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #79 -- Low Bandwidth Version

(This version is of a suitable size for e-mail attachments)

In light of news received on July 5th, the planned program order was delayed until July 13th. LISTen #79 is the penultimate episode of LISTen perhaps. This brief episode outlines what is going on and why LISTen may well join Tech for Techies in returning to the Twilight Zone on July 13th. It is anticipated that the grand finale that is planned to be LISTen #80 (unless things change) will include after-action reports about Anime Expo and more.

This is the final episode of Tech for Techies. The show will return to the Twilight Zone from where it came (for the time being). Stephen talks about broadcast transmission, be it radio, television or cellphones. Another Federal Government PSA from the Census Bureau, Profile America. My close explains the present situation at Erie Looking Productions.

In connection with what I bring up in the close, I want you to read a recommendation from LinkedIn:

LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #75 -- Low Bandwidth Version

This week's podcast gets to deal with messy, emotion-laden, sometimes painful topics. First up we look at the Laporte-Arrington dispute and discuss how the corporate structures of media outlets can act as firewalls and buffers to prevent this. After that we highlight a case where a United States Attorney served a newspaper with a subpoena seeking every scrap of information possible to identify anonymous commenters who spoke about a pending grand jury investigation. Anonymity online may not be as secure or as thorough as you might imagine due to the underlying technical infrastructures involved.
