RFID podcast

Mary Minow over at LibraryLaw brought this podcast to our attention. Download it to your computer or your Mp3 player to catch up on the good and the bad of RFID.


Recording podcasts

We here at Infoblog have been busily investigating the art of podcasting: how to record the little devils and then how to get them posted. It's more challenging than you'd think. Currently we like to use the interal microphone in our Macs and record directly into a nifty application called Audio Hijack Pro that saves the resulting audio files as MP3. This works quite nicely (see Holly Hinman's November 14 podcast as an example of this method).


Cool Stuff from Yahoo Research

One of my favorite RSS feeds is IT Conversations, "a listener- and underwriter-supported network of high-end tech talk-radio interviews, discussions and presentations from major conferences delivered live and on-demand via the Internet." Check out the presentation by Gary Flake, Founder of Yahoo! Research Labs from the March 2005 O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference March 2005.


Can I Tape It?

Telephone interviews are increasingly being recorded for use as podcasts and those who are doing or plan to do this need to know that the legality of recording telephone conversations varies around the country. The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has put together a guide to each state's particular laws on the practice called "Can We Tape?".
