With respect to my prior post….

In all seriousness, it would not be difficult to do the following:

  • Put up presentations as, say, 10 minute m4a files — straight audio, audio with slides added by hand, or audio-video derived from lecture-capture applications;
  • Post audio comments from discussants, their notes, or both;
  • Associate them all with a dedicated feed or feeds; and
  • Provide a place for listeners to comment on each virtual panel.

We could do this at the Duck. We could create a dedicated blog. We could impress upon APSA that this might make a worthwhile experiment and that they should host it. At the very least, I am happy to handle the logistics for a few trial panels or presentations myself. 

Thoughts?
