Once again, I’ll be releasing two shows this week. Today’s show will feature another quotable quote but before sharing that with you I want to invite you to celebrate my 50th show, which seems to have snuck up on me, by sending in e-mail or audio comments regarding what clip has meant to you. You can reach me at email@example.com or leave a voice mail at 206-984-1778. There is a catch here though because my 50th comes up next week! So if you could send your thoughts by Monday, July 2, I’ll be in good shape to put those together.
Andy and I recently returned from attending Podcasters Across Borders in Kingston, Ontario. We had an amazing time. I’m so glad to have become part of an incredibly supportive podcasting community. I’ll be posting photos on my Flickr page so you can see for yourself what a terrific time we all had. During his presentation, Neil Gorman used the analogy of podcasters as seeking out new frontiers as in the days of Star Trek , the original episode, to boldly go where no-one has gone before. This week’s quotable quote fits nicely with this line of thinking.
…the more a literacy practice privileges participation over publishing, distributed expertise over centralized expertise, collective intelligence over individual possessive intelligence, collaboration over individuated authorship, dispersion over scarcity, sharing over ownership, experimentation over “normalization”, innovation and evolution over stability and fixity, creative-innovative rule breaking over generic purity and policing, relationship over information broadcast, and so on, the more we should regard it as a “new” literacy.
The quote comes from A New Literacies Sampler by Michel Knobel and Colin Lankshear.
Stunning and breathtaking are words I would use to describe some of the work I’ve seen produced by fellow podcasters, and that’s no exageration. Thanks to Mark, Bob, Andrea, and Cat and all the other attendees for an amazing weekend. I look forward to seeing you all next year!
Keep an eye out for my next show where I’ll take you to the Canadian Prairies for a conversation with a group of friends who are exploring critical literacies in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
