Lunchtime Listens: YouTube mistakes/Twitter/Web Radio

The Public Relations/Technology blog For Immediate Release featured several topics of interest to librarians in issue 222:

  • YouTube, Viacom and the removal of videos
  • Twitter and its potential in business;
  • and at 46:09 – Comment from Clarence Jones on copyright royalties and it’s implications (bad) for streaming radio providers.

Twitter is yet another social media communications tool. It’s not quite blogging for cell phones, but that’s close. Shel and Neville explain it better than I can.

The item on YouTube regards the removal of 100K+ videos, allegedly for copyright violations. A number of videos were misidentified and EFF is collecting stories from people affected.

Maybe the above isn’t new to you, but it was new to me. Hopefully it will be new to some of you as well.
