This guy just spoke in my undergrad journalism class. He’s Steve Sloan, and he’s talking about professors using podcasting as a means to deliver lectures. For some reason I have a flashback to Rodney Dangerfield showing up to class and finding a tape recorder on every seat, and eventually, the prof. has left his recording playing as the joke recurs throughout the movie.
I like the idea that podcasting can be free radio – forget all those scenes of local pirate radio subversives getting raided by the feds – podcasting might not be as inexpensive as a radio (yet), but there it is – a means to get your information/news/propaganda/advertising/ego-trip/music anything you want out online, with your voice and tunes and ideas intact.
For now, when I miss a class, I’ll just copy someone’s notes.
