Duke University Podcasting Symposium

Posted on

So we’re spending the next 2 days at lovely Duke University (my alma mater) at the 1st Duke Podcasting Symposium, so we can learn all about how podcasting is changing the world! If we get any cool tidbits, we will be sure to pass them along. So far, the facilities are great, free wireless, but no free breakfast. bummer.

Call for papers: Session on blogs and podcasts in geography

Posted on

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. If you are interested in joining in please contact Jesse at jesse at veryspatial dot com.
