This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.
In the intro, I talk about SCALE 9x for which I have two free passes for the first two people to send me an email asking after them. I also play the official promo for the expo.
Listener feedback is from John, Charles and Mike in response to my rant on the pseudocommons. John framed his question on his blog. Charles and Mike contributed their thoughts in the comment thread for the episode. Charles also commented on my interview with Gabriella Coleman, to which she replied with some excellent sources for further reading. Charles has started his own new blog to further explore some of the ideas that informed his comments on the pseudocommons rant.
The hacker word of the week this week is fix.
The feature this week is some event recording I captured at Wiki X DC, the local tenth anniversary celebration for Wikipedia. These are just two talks out of an entire day’s worth given by Archives staffers and Wikipedians. I was there on behalf of Fedflix to talk about that project.
The first talk I have was given by Jill Reilly James. She works with online public access at the Archives where she is a staffer (though her talk isn’t an official statement by the Archives just her own views). She talks through using the existing and new search interfaces. Jill also blogs at Narations, the official Archives blog about online public access.
The second talk I have was given by Sarah Stierch who is working on the Wikiproject for Public Art. She mentions the SIRIS database, a site discussing the “morally correct” statuary at Union Station, and Tony Smith.
