No New Year's Eve Special For LISTen

Submitted by StephenK on Thu, 12/31/2009 - 23:23
Although it might be sought by some, it must be noted that there is no special episode of LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast to be released for New Year's Eve let alone New Year's Day. With the new year ringing in so late in the week, we do not want to cannibalize available material for the next regular episode. The next episode will be released according to the normal schedule and should be released on or near 0400 UTC on January 4th. In the meantime, you can still listen to the most recent episode.

If you are one of the proud few librarians hanging out on Identica, something new has been created. Beyond the main feed having its story titles posted to a feed there, a group for discussion has been created. Unlike Twitter which has to have this bolted on from third party providers like Twibes, Identica provides group functionality in house.

We're getting closer and closer to the start of another academic year and a new intake of LIS students. A question that arises is how to follow LISNews. Recognizing that people have different interests and also different habits in consuming Internet content, it is necessary to perhaps list some of those tools.

You can subscribe to LISNews via e-mail. A page with an example of an e-mail and the sign-up form can be seen at http://lisnews.org/node/28182. E-mails normally come out once per weekday.

Hyperlinked History- The Video

Submitted by Great Western Dragon on Tue, 07/28/2009 - 18:40

When I first conceived the idea for Hyperlinked History and the whole Faceless Historian thing, I wanted it to be an online television show. At the very least I wanted to make an online documentary series with video, music, and the whole bit. So I shot a couple of test things and edited them together. Then I deleted that crap because it was terrible.

A year later, I have skills and equipment I didn't originally possess. So I'm excited to announce that Hyperlinked History will be moving into the realm of online video!
