A LISTen Special: Is The Cloud Dissipating?

In this special edition of LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast one finds a chat with Blake Carver talking about creating a Drupal site as well as discussion of implications arising from recent changes on the Web 2.0 frontier. An audio news release from the United States Postal Service is presented so as to show another example of that communications form for libraries seeking to innovate in PR. LISTen is available to libraries who want to take a practice shot at such before approaching their local media outlets.

The next regular episode of LISTen will be released on or near 0500 UTC on January 19th.
