STC podcasts available

Two podcasts from this year's conference are available at the STC Web site. Topics include "Best Practices for Chapter Public Relations" and "Organizing Profitable Chapter Events."

Wouldn't it be great to have access to all of the sessions via podcast?

Others have been working on this. The Conversations Network is a non-profit organization whose mission is to record and preserve events, meetings and other happenings:

Also of interest: In April, Boston University hosted the Podcast Academy. You can read more about it here. The next Podcast Academy event will take place this September in conjunction with the Podcast and Portable Media Expo.
