A proof of concept podcast

Assignments due today:

(1) Blog post due Tuesday 28 Apr by noon [this can be one of your two weekly posts]
Now that you have been listening/reading … write a succinct but savvy summary (hah!) of one podcast and one blog that you are following. Don’t use the canned copy from the site! This assignment focuses on analytical skills as well as serves as practice for your writing your own summaries. Next – write a review of the podcast/blog: who’s the audience, how well is the audience being served? Post (one entry) to your blog.
