SpokenWord lookng for curators aggregates podcasts, almost all of which are free, and makes it easy for users to export them to, say, iTunes. It’s a non-profit site and is all about the openness. (Disclosure: I’m on its board.) Now SpokenWord is looking for volunteers to curate podcast feeds and episodes in topics that interest them. Their curated collections will be the main feature at the SpokenWord site, because nothing knows what’s interesting to humans better than other humans do. Details here.

Wolfram interview

The Berkman Center has posted the raw audio of my 55 minute interview with Stephen Wolfram, about his deeply cool WolframAlpha program (which he talked about here yesterday). On the other hand, if you wait a few days, you can skip some throat-clearing on my part, as well as my driving him down an alley based on my not seeing where WolframAlpha puts links to other pieces of information. As is so often the case, the edited version will be better.

April 22, 2009 getting excellenter

Doug Kaye keeps on polishing, a free site that collects spoken word podcasts (well, it only collects pointers to them) and lets you find, rate, discuss, and hear them. You can also add ones links to ones you like to the collection (i.e., share them). SpokenWord is getting quite useful and usable. Give it a try. (Disclosure: I’m on its board of directors; it’s a non-profit.)

February 13, 2009 aggregates spoken words

Douglas Kaye, founder of IT Conversations and the Conversations Network, has launched Here’s part of the announcement:

There are perhaps millions of audio and video spoken-word
recordings on the Internet. Think of all those lectures,
interviews, speeches, conferences, meetings, radio and TV
programs and podcasts. No matter how obscure the topic,
someone has recorded and published it on line.

But how do you find it? is a new free on-line service that helps you
find, manage and share audio and video spoken-word
recordings, regardless of who produced them or where
they’re published. All of the recordings in the database are discovered on the Internet and
submitted to our database by members like you.

This is another public-spirited work from a public-spirited guy who has assembled and inspired a public-spirited collective. [Disclosure: I’m on the board of advisers.]
