In a few months' time, Atlanta's iconic watering hole and beloved neighborhood living room will close for renovation. A collaboration among three local academic institutions is underway to ensure that nearly 60 years of history hanging on the walls will be documented, annotated, and preserved for restoration after reopening.

"As a symbol of the Fourth of July holiday, it is easy for the conversation this time of year to turn to iconic American flags, like the flag the Marines raised at Iwo Jima; the one firefighters put up at ground zero; and the one that flew over Fort McHenry and was the inspiration for what would become our national anthem."
"As the space shuttle program comes to an end this week, CBS News decided to look into the flags the astronauts left behind on six trips to the moon.

It's a little later than I hoped but episode three of Hyperlinked History is done and online for your edutainment pleasure! I had some technical difficulties along with this nagging thing called "my job" that kept encroaching on my free time. So I apologize for the tardiness and invite you to join me for a trip through history from Heian Japan to modern day America! On the way we'll conquer China, mint a few coins, and accidentally burn New York to the ground.
Things like that can happen when you're Moving Along.
You can always catch past and current episodes on the Hyperlinked History site. If you're of an Apple state of mind, you can subscribe to the show in iTunes.

Hyperlinked History is back with a new episode in the continuing online documentary series!
Join Daniel Messer, The Faceless Historian, and go on a journey from the depths of space right into your own computer. Along the way you'll play a game, read a mystery, and get a little bit mystical. It's a circus of history and you're invited!
Check out the latest episode.
Update: I just confirmed that the video issue on iPods is fixed, so you can now sync the video to your iPod, iPod Touch, Nano, or whatever else works through iTunes. If you'd like to go that route, feel free!

Hyperlinked History is back and in living colour! (Most video is nowadays.)
The first episode of Hyperlinked History is available online and on iTunes for your viewing pleasure! This time, join the Faceless Historian as he takes you on a tour of history from an Indian mathematician to modern aircraft. You'll meet slightly insane geniuses and get a little electrified as you lift off with Soaring Numbers.
Note: I'm told that iTunes is having issues syncing the show to iPods. I'll see if I can figure out what's going on. However, the show plays just fine within iTunes, so you can still watch it that way!

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!
The opening of the show is available online as a sort of teaser/trailer and you'll be able to keep up with the programme both here on LISNews and on the Hyperlinked History site. Episodes should start going online around the end of August, so stay tuned!

On one of my previous shows, I talked about Ignite Phoenix and the whole Ignite thing. Among other things, I said it'd be good for librarians to get into something like this because, in five minutes, you can tell a huge group of people all about your library and/or whatever else you're passionate about.
Dani Cutler, a local Phoenix area podcaster, is working on a series of interviews with people who've presented at Ignite Phoenix. She and I sat down at one of the greatest coffee shops in the Valley of the Sun and talked about libraries and the funny things that happen in them, history, Hyperlinked History, and presenting at Ignite.
So if you have the interest, you can hear my alter ego speak with the lovely and intelligent Dani Cutler over on the Ignite Phoenix Podcast site.

The LISNews Netcast Network schedule for this summer:
Submitted by Great Western Dragon on May 21, 2009 - 12:00pm
As they've said in broadcasting for years, "Due to circumstances beyond our control," Hyperlinked History will be delayed until next Thursday. Nothing bad, but among those "circumstances" is the fact that my ISP is having issues and I've not had Internet connectivity at my house for just under 14 hours now.
So I leave you with another timeless (aka ancient) broadcasting phrase: "Tune in next week" to find out how ancient tombs for divine kings links through time and history to another cultish fascination... with a soft drink.

I wanted to send out a heads up to the listeners of the LISNews Netcast Network and fans of Hyperlinked History that I will be changing the day I publish the show online. Due to some schedule changes and the madness that is a summer reading programme, this will be a lot easier for me to get a show up regularly.
Starting this week the show will go online every other Thursday around midnight, Eastern Time. For international folks that's Friday 04:00 UTC.
So when you don't see a show online tomorrow morning, you'll know why. Just wait another 24 hours, that's all!

Due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control, Hyperlinked History will be delayed this week. The program will post by Thursday morning UTC at the latest.
