Pagebreak Podcast at Interlink Conference

 

Well, it ain’t any part of the “official” conference events, BUT Niki and I will both be in Vancouver this June for the Interlink Conference and while in town plan to record the first ever live episode. If you’re going to be there and are interested in hanging out with us while we drink some beers and talk about… whatever we’ll be talking about, let us know! There are still conference tickets available, and we’d love to hang out with you!

More details on this crazy idea of ours as we get close to June! :)

Episode 7: Here Comes Everybody

You can listen to the show here, but we’d love for everyone to subscribe to the show in iTunes! Don’t forget to leave feedback and thanks for listening! :)

It’s Episode 7 and our book is Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations by Clay Shirky. This book pick was a little bit of a different tune than our previous books, but we both got a lot of of this!
This episode is part talking about theories from the poor and part reministing about the olden days of the web.

Warning to you that we did have a few audio hiccups, so we apologize if any of this sounds a little funky!
