Meant to thank you before for noting this, Clay. So, now, thanks!

Anyway, I was reminded when I updated my feed from ITConversations. This may be of interest to some: Doug Kaye is a guest on Technometria with Phil Windley, available for streaming or download. (http://itc.conversationsnetwork.org/shows/detail4021.html) (Kaye runs SpokenWord.org and ITC.)

I haven't listened to this yet, but I've heard these two talk before -- they give good conversation.

[UPDATE] Listening now. Probably this one will only be of interest to computer geeks.

Show blurb:

SpokenWord.org is a free non-profit service that helps you find, manage and share audio and video spoken-word recordings. Not an actual collection of podcasts, it is a directory and search engine that allows users to find the best audio and video recordings available. Doug Kaye, the site's developer, joins Phil and Scott to discuss its launch and building process.

In addition to giving a basic description of SpokenWord.org, Doug also reviews the technical aspects of the project, including the issues related to its original development. He also talks about some of the programming hurdles and how the site is likely to grow. This discussion will be particularly interesting to programmers and technological people wanting to learn more about the problems with software and website development.
