Media Giraffe Project 2006 Conference Blog

On June 29 – July 1, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst is hosting the Media Giraffe Project 2006 Conference, "Democracy & Independence: Sharing News & Politics in a Connected World".

I've been helping out with the conference blog. We're still working on the layout, but you can check in here for updates and subscribe to the RSS feed.

During the conference, we're asking participants to tag their Flickr pics, blip.tv videos, del.icio.us links, and Technorati posts all with . This way visitors will be able to find content and media related to the conference under this one tag.

There's also a conference wiki linked from the blog that will be another way for participants to get invovled.

I'll be participating in a session about podcasting and education titled, "Morphing from Music: iPods Enter the Classroom", part of the Media Education Track. I'm going to talk about podcasts I've produced for AudioBerkman and ACMEBoston and the role that podcasting can play both inside and outside the classroom.
