I am told that CBC Radio One’s Morning Edition (Saskatchewan Programming) will be featuring a piece on blogging tomorrow morning (Feb 22, 2005) at 7:15 a.m. I was interviewed for the piece, along with a few other local bloggers, and I am looking forward to see how they put it together.
I am assuming that there will be an accessible net-version of the broadcast available here shortly after it airs.
Update: Using the power of Wiretap (great App for OS X), here is an audio clip of this CBC broadcast.
Pretty interesting little piece, Alec. It does a good job of explaining why people blog on a variety of levels (personal, professional, etc), and why someone may want to get out there and start blogging.
Would I play this for my students? I may, however, I would definitely explain to the students that it is important not to do a few things that Katie Murphy did. Especially getting in contact with a person that they did not know. Now she probably researched things, and knew what she was getting into. However, it was not mentioned and students may contact the blogger when it is not safe to do so.
Otherwise, it was an interesting “listen”, and it’s great to know that we have a “professional blogger” as our professor.
This is cool. I will forward to the schools to learn more about blogg
