Interview with Howard Rheingold

Posted in Podcast

I’m pleased to post the second episode of the gnovis podcast, a casual interview with Howard Rheingold, chatting with gnovis’ Nicole Guerra, CCT student Stewart Geiger, and CCT Adjunct Professor Garrison LeMasters.

Artist: gnovis, Georgetown’s peer-reviewed journal of Communication, Culture & Technology (CCT)
Title: Interview with Howard Rheingold
Year: 2007
Length: 41:24 minutes (20.01 MB)
Format:Stereo 22kHz 67Kbps (VBR)

In this lively conversation, Rheingold discusses topics ranging from
text-messaging to journalism, and interdisciplinary scholarship to
science fiction. His comments on academia offer yet another perspective on the debate we had on the gnovis blog earlier this year, in these two posts: “The Hermetic Reality of "Higher Learning” and “Are Bloggers the new Public Intellectuals?”.

Professor Rheingold, author of Smart Mobs, lectures at Stanford and Berkley and is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the social implications of technology. He visited Georgetown University earlier this week to speak to the CCT program’s introductory class for new students.
