Equinox Webcastathon & Class of 2.3

  The Worldbridges Equinox Webcastathon is less than 36 hours away. The ever-evolving schedule is at

Interns (past and present), feel free to edit that page to add a show.  You'll need to register at in order to do so. We have plenty of channels, so if someone is already streaming at your desired time, you can sign up at the same time and stream on a different channel.  This is a great opportunity to get some interncasts under your belt, so don't hesitate to sign up.  Oldtimers, this can also be a good  opportunity to get your gradcast out of the way and actually graduate from The Academy. Updated graduation info is at:  The longer you wait, the more graduation tasks we'll add  :)

Also, if you're available to stream at certain times but don't have a new show to webcast, you can sign up in the column for 'other available streamers'. Between scheduled shows, 'Other Available Streamers' can play recordings of  podsafe music and/or clips from podcasts (from Worldbridges or other sources of open content). They can also be available to stream shows hosted by others who are not quite ready to stream on their own.  If you're someone who's not quite ready to stream on your own, feel free to sign up for a time slot and note your need for some streaming support - chances are someone will sign up to provide it.  As usual during Webcastathons, there will probably be a lot of late-breaking schedule changes and additions, so stay tuned to that page and the Worldbridges Chat Room (accessible from any Worldbridges site).  Webcastathons are also a great opportunity to stretch beyond our normal audiences and topics, so please blog, twitter, and spread the word anywhere you'd like.

For those who are ready to take the intern plunge, the next Academy Session (Class of 2.3) is scheduled to begin the week of October 14. Jose Rodriguez and Graham Stanley will be serving as facilitators.  Information about applying is here.    Those who were interns during earlier sessions, but never quite 'followed through' are welcome to join in again and complete their internship.   A Webcast Academy Open House is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 23 at 1700GMT

8th Grade Radio Show Tomorrow!

Tomorrow 12 courageous 8th graders from New York City will try their hands at a 3-day webcasting session (after a brief tutorial from me today). Each day they will produce a 3-segment, 30-minute show. The topics right now range from the Apple/PC debate to life as 8th graders in New York City to entertainment coverage. They are excited at the possibility of live listeners, so I would appreciate it if any of you could join us from 12:30pm EST/GMT-5 (17:30GMT) in the chatroom. We will be broadcasting during the same time on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Upcoming Meetings and Last Call for the Class of 1.x

October 28, 2006 Newsletter

Dear Webcast Academy Interns and Registrants,

  Thanks to the Class of 1.3 for a great first week of the session. For those who are interested in becoming interns, but have not yet registered or become active, it's still not too late - this is a last call to join the class of 1.x.  If you would like to be considered part of The Webcast Academy Class of 1.x, you need to post an audio introduction by Nov. 1, 11:59pmGMT.  In order to receive the necessary posting privileges, you  will need to have posted a short note on this forum thread expressing your interest. 
    Everyone is welcome to participate in the community and learn whatever they can from the Webcast Academy site, but only 1.x interns will be able to stream from the Webcast Academy Sandbox Channels and be eligible to receive webcasting certification during the upcoming 1st Academy Certification Council .  For  a discussion about what that means and how to begin posting to your Webcaster Portfolio, please tune in to Webcast Academy Meeting 1.3.2 or listen to the recording. The Class of 2.x is scheduled to begin early in 2007, but the certification council will not meet again for at least 6 months.
At the bottom of this note is a list of those who have applied to be part of the Class of 1.x and those who have posted audio introductions.  If you've posted an audio introduction, but it is not noted, please send a quick email with a link to the mp3 file to
Members of the Classes of 1.1 and 1.2, if you have not posted your introductions, please do so if you'd like to receive certification at the upcoming council.

There are two meetings coming up on Sunday, Oct. 29
Please note that daylight savings time ends tonight in many time zones, so we may need to re-adjust our internal GMT calculators.
Brad will be hosting a Mac users session at either either noon or 1pm GMT - stay tuned to the event listing for clarification.
I will be hosting a general meeting at 9amPST/noonEST/5pmGMT (global times).
The agenda includes: Posting Guide, ID3Tags, Info about the Station Module Automatic Archive Update, 1.3 Learning Plan, Open Workshop - Q&A, Troubleshooting
For those who have not yet listened to Meeting 1.3.1, we discussed having mini-meetings and workshops at other times.  All 1.x interns are welcome to schedule and host gatherings at any time.  To do so, simply click 'Create Content/event'.  You can also send a newsletter out to other interns by clicking 'create content/ newsletter) and selecting 'Webcast Academy Intern Newsletter'.
