Cultural Mechanics

Kudos to James O’Sullivan for a title so great I want to steal it: Cultural Mechanics is his podcast focusing on a really diverse range of digital humanities and digital arts topics. (Right now I would say it’s more digital arts in nature, but that may not be his overall focus.) Here it is on SoundCloud.

Listening to Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin on 5by5’s [*Back to Work* podcast][b2w], and hearing them mention Dr. Drang and Fletcher Penney and realizing that I have been involved in this scene a loonnngg time, and I haven’t really figured out how to make anything of that. (Thinking about 37Signals’ notion of “by-products”.)

Equipment Guide for Podcasting

Over at HiveLogic, Dan Benjamin has a great [guide on Podcasting Equipment][hl], which has been updated for 2009. He distinguishes between four types of users: beginner, entry, mid-range, and prosumer. (Okay, that isn’t a very coherent typology, but the scenarios he provides for each are clear enough to be helpful to anyone curious.)
