In the spirit of some recent posts, and in the mood of Mavis Beacon, I am transcribing the Global Voices Online session of today’s Internet and Society 2004
conference. If you want to see the unedited results in real time, I am
typing it up on IRC in the #harvardbitstrans channel. If you remote
readers have questions for the speakers, send me IRC messages (not in the transcription channel, please) and I will try to ask the question for you.

With a little lag, I am also posting the results here, one session to its own story. So far today:

11:00 – 12:30 : How to Build a Blogosphere

Hoder, Isaac,
and Ory discuss blogging in Persia, China, and Kenya; censorship; and
encouraging fledgling blog communities around national identity. Sorry,
Jeff Ooi and Malay blogging couldn’t take part in the discussion.

12:30 – 2:00 : Podcasting

transcribed the podcasting talk. Tony Kahn of WBUR moderated a
discussion about the new technology, its growth in recent months, and
future trends.

2:00 – 3:30 : Tools

Ethan and Kwin Kramer lead a discussion and presentation of tools for blogging and bloggers; hopefully featuring a discussion of the new Arabic Blog Tool

4:00 – 5:30 : Global Voices Manifesto

Joi and Jim Moore lead the room in developing a manifesto for improving and expanding the blogosphere

Dinner will not be taped. It will not be podcast, webcast, or broadcast. It will not be blogged… much. Dinner
will not have its own Wikipedia entry. It will not be transcribed on
Eye-Arr-See. Friends and bloggers, ladies and infogeeks, dinner will be

So *that*’s what you’ve been so busy typing all this time! Color me impressed.

Hi Rachel, j, and thanks. My hands feel loved. now if only I could get voice-rec software that worked half as fast, I could let them atrophy in peace.

Wow sound like a lot to do. Now I see why people need to be really fast at typing to do that job. (something about landmark 🙂
