Donna Papacosta, of the Trafcom News, is holding a free 45-minute webinar on podcasting. In her post announcing the webinar, she lists the following topics that will be covered:

“All you need are a phone and computer.”

The Machine is Us/ing Us
One more cool thing… In her blog, Donna Papacosta directs us too a great online video that explains Web 2.0 and social media. In five captivating minutes digital ethnographers at Kansas State University demonstrate the development of the social media world. I am definitely going to be sharing this with my co-workers.
