Tech for Techies #4

This week's program talks about show structure. In the program we delve into component parts to think about in making a show. Many examples are given as other programs out there are referenced as examples. A list of links to those programs is given later in this post. Audio Snake Oil will return as part of the program next week. Towards the end of the program we feature a number from the U.S. Army Field Band's Jazz Ambassadors, The Army Goes Rolling Along. You can find more downloads from the band as well as learn more about them at their website. On the web, they can be found at Shows referenced: TWiT Live TV Squad Daily With Brigitte (now defunct) Buzz Out Loud the404 CNET News Daily Podcast Writer's Almanac Uncontrolled Vocabulary (on hiatus) tech5 Food Science with Dr. Kiki (presently defunct) GeekBriefTV This Week in Science This Week in Tech FLOSS Weekly CNET's Podcast Central

RambleCast #1

Hyperlinked History is off this week. In lieu the network presents an essay talking about the world's knowledge ecology and some aspects of creating content within it. No transcripts will be available for this as it is based off a handwritten outline of which even the page turning can be heard in the program. The essay is contemplative and philosophical.

LISTen: An Podcast -- Episode #63

In this week's episode we hear from Peter Eckersley, a staff technologist with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, about their new Surveillance Self-Defense guide. Tools such as Tor and GnuPG are also presented in addition to a mention of the show's relevant GnuPG public key.

Tech for Techies #3

In this week's show we look at Needs Assessment and the questions you need to ask yourself. In Audio Snake Oil we continue our look at Oxygen Free Copper wires. Somehow a promo piece from Linux Outlaws pops up in the middle of things. Next week we will look at the structure of a podcast and planning a podcast.

The homework between now and next week is to think about the questions discussed in the episode and how you would answer them in launching an online media project.

Resources list promised in the episode:

Hyperlinked History - Moving Along by The Faceless Historian

Welcome to another episode of Hyperlinked History! This time we drop into pre-medieval Japan and explore courtly rulers, samurai, invaders from foreign lands, mythic locales, Popes, empresses, money, stocks, conflagrations, and freight handling.

As you can see, things are really Moving Along.

LISTen: An Podcast -- Episode #62

We've got two interviews this week. In the first we talk to Rod Wagner, the director of the Nebraska Library Commission. Following that we talk to Nebraska Auditor of Public Accounts Mike Foley. Both interviews revolve around the same matter, namely the audit triggered when an unsuspecting taxpayer stumbled across a video of Nebraska Library Commission librarians on YouTube that did not look quite right to the taxpayer. There is a commentary following the two interviews discussing lessons that could be learned from the incident.

Tech for Techies #2

Welcome to the first week of the Tech for Techies class! To learn about where we are going we have to look at where we have been. This week we look at the history of broadcasting that preceded podcasting. We also take a moment to look at a bit of "audio snake oil" when it comes to the physics of cabling. There is no homework for next week with the class. That won't always be the case, though. Related links: reference to a history text on very early radio history in North America
