Podcast symposium coverage end of Day 1

We skipped out on the Triangle podcasters and the meet the speakers thingies, the hands on was fairly informative. Many of the things they talked about are the things I am trying to do and will hopefully have in place soon. I, of course, hoped that I would have our sound set up more or less to a good place by Ep 10 which ended up being a step back with the echo and noise in the room. If you are interested in watching the streams as it occurs or after it is completed head over to the podcasting symposium site.

I hope that we will have a special edition about the symposium put together soon. To keep it primarily in the pervue of VerySpatial we will try to steer toward location-shifting.

Podcast Symposium coverage continues

The sessions have been great so far. It is being held in a high tech auditorium at Duke in the Fitzpatrick building. This is an academic perspective on podcasting with a few sessions on more hands on issues. The only downside so far is 1 guy who has been part of 2 panels that is just reading his presentation, without any discernable inflections…you know, like I sound on the podcast 🙂

To learn more or to listen to the symposium while it is going on head to the Duke Podcasting Symposium site.

Call for papers: Session on blogs and podcasts in geography

Over the last year blogs and podcasts have really come to the fore as great ways to disseminate information. While they do not take the place of traditional media for reporting and documentation, they offer a forum for more up-to-date or opinion based information. They also offer a web of information as different blogs link among themselves and to more traditional information sources to being relevant information to the broadest audience. This session will allow for the open discussion of the use of these, and related, technologies to support geography and geographic education. We are looking for individuals with any level of experience with blogs or podcasts from simply reading/listening regularly to maintaining and creating these media whether geography related or not. The format will be a series of short position presentations of 5-10 min followed by an open discussion. No abstracts are need since the session will be submitted as a panel.
