Well, Gizmo Me!

GigaOM » Gizmo 3.0, Voice for all IMs – This is in addition to the ability to link Gizmo to your Asterisk PBX.  So, you can IM and voice chat with Gtalk, Yahoo, MSN Live users, IM with Jabber users, and enjopy the wide world of SIP.  Sounds good to me.

A New Berkman Center Media Library?

Scripting News: 2/24/2007 – Dave links to an interesting presentation by Charlie Nesson looking to find a champion for an overhaul of the Berkman Center Media Library.  Seems like a job for cchost. At the very least, it could be subjected to something like I did for AALS 2007 podcasts which just uses a couple of open source libraries to juice things up.  Takes no time at all.
