It's only a few weeks ago that anthropologist Michael Wesch explained in an extremly popular YouTube-video how collaborative web technologies change scholarship. Now Jen Cardew at Synthesis of Thoughts tells us that several sessions at the conference of the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) are set to be recorded and published as podcasts.
A new website is set up: http://www.sfaapodcasts.net/ The first podcast will be up by April 7th.
That's good news. Last summer, anthropologists were criticized for being the last primitive tribe on earth because they didn't embrace the possibillities provided by the digital era. Several times, I've written about how difficult it is to get information about what's going on on conferences.
