iCommons podcast coming up soon

So today we produced the first iCommons podcast. The day began by driving around town finding a decent microphone, not an easy task since we were looking for a multi-directional mic and ended up purchasing a standard desk pc mic. It picks up sound and is part of the experience of trying out various technical equipment until finding the perfectly suitable one for this kind of recording.

As I write this, the podcast is being recorded in the office. Reuben Goldberg has introduced the team, including Heather Ford, Rebecca Kahn, Matthew Buckland, Paul Jacobson, and Whispa, the winner of the recently held ccmixter competition. Topics discussed are the ccmixter competition, the idea and a review of open source movies and a story of a successfully used Creative Commons license.

The podcast seems to be going well, the mic has to be passed to the person speaking but everybody is eager to discuss and add their point of view. Once the podcast has been edited and added to the iCommons site I'll provide a link, it sure is worth a listen and is the beginning of a series of interesting podcasts to come.

UPDATE: visit the iCommons site to find and listen to the podcast!
