Our inaugural episode features CHNM Director of Research Projects, Dan Cohen, CHNM Associate Director, Mills Kelly, and CHNM Assistant Director, Tom Scheinfeldt discussing the controversy over whether Wikipedia is a useful or problematic resource for student, the launch of Windows Vista, the rise of Google Docs as an alternative to MS Word, and recent stories about Blackboard’s patents and their social bookmarking site, Scholar.com. And at the end of the podcast, we share links to the best free wiki software and sites on digital maps and books.
