It appears that the podcast feed for the Charlottesville Podcasting Network has been restored, though at this point, I'm not sure. I can iTunes to recognize every new podcast again, but I'm having trouble getting this to work properly in Bloglines, my RSS reader of choice. Please comment here if you're having troubles.
And, it's good as well, because I've just uploaded a presentation by Chief Kenneth Adams of the Upper Mattaponi tribe, made this morning at the Democratic Breakfast sponsored by the local party. It was a very interesting talk, and I encourage anyone to listen to it.
In the future, I hope to grow CPN to a point where we've got editors producing a weekly highlight real. I've always wanted to make that happen, and it appears we will be able to do that in the near future. I recognize that not everyone has the time to listen to hour long lectures, but I want to make sure that we're capturing these for the public's use, in perpetuity. The goal is help expand the public square, as I've been saying now for three years.
In 2008, I'm going to use this blog as a way to describe more about the efforts to grow our community's podcast site in the coming year.
Thanks to Rod Hooper for assisting me today, and thanks to George Loper for letting me use one of his pictures.
Later on today, I have two more volunteers coming over to work on podcasts of a recent Senior Statesmen event, a reading at New Dominion Bookshop, and an educational series put on by the Ivy Creek Foundation. So, it's good to be back podcasting!
