Add this to another station PodSession: Startup Do's and Don'ts with Matt Mullenweg of Automattic (9.89MB; download) -- Last night Om and I sat down with Matt Mullenweg, lead developer of open-source blogging software WordPress and a recent founder of Automattic to record our latest PodSession. Automattic is a software services company centered around the WordPress blogging platform. We chatted about how to successfully scale a new web application. WordPress.com currently hosts about 200,000 blogs with mirrored hosting in San Diego and Dallas. Matt and I agreed that it's best not to over-optimize at the beginning but instead sit back and watch the actual usage of your web application to fine-tune. Check out Cal Henderson's new book, Building Scalable Web Sites for over 300 pages to help keep your site online. Om tried to shake things up with a Ruby on Rails vs. PHP showdown, but again it didn't work. David Heinemeier Hansson and I talked about the same issue in our 37signals podcast last December. Pick a programming language you and your engineers are comfortable with, or you can easily pick up based on existing skills. Using existing programming libraries in a given language may sway your decision. We talked about spam in the form of fake blogs and/or comment spam. The Akismet plugin has stopped over 40 million spam messages from blog owners and is also being used to identify the creation of spam blog accounts on WordPress.com. With the recent integration of blog search results to mainstream media sites such as Time.com and the Associated Press blog spam now has a new level of visibility and motive for attack. Hopefully startup companies are keeping on top of the problem and related items for "Bush" won't be overwhelmed with camgirls. This week's PodSession, Startup Do's and Don'ts, is 22 minutes in length, a 10 MB download. Tags: automatticphprailsspamstartupwordpress

Add this to another station The Iraqi Police (23.81MB; download) -- Click to Listen to the Show (24 MB MP3) Police Academy[Chad Sandoe / Flickr] A strong Iraqi police force is one of the stated "pillars" of the Bush Administration's Iraq strategy. It's essential to the country's stability -- and therefore to any plans for U.S. troop withdrawal (about which rumors are heating up again). So how is it that three years after the fall of Baghdad the police force is exhausted and ineffective -- and seems in fact to be at the very root of the country's simmering civil war? What went wrong and when? What did we learn from Bosnia and Kosovo (and countless other post-conflict countries) about basic law and order that we could have applied here? Why didn't we do it? And what happens now?

Add this to another station The Wealth of Networks (37.89MB; download) -- Yochai Benkler, Professor of Law at Yale University, explores the effects of laws that regulate information production and exchange on the distribution of control over information flows, knowledge, and culture in the digital environment. Professor Benkler discusses these and other topics from his new book, The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom. The Wealth of Networks is a comprehensive social theory of the Internet and the networked information economy. In it, Professor Benkler describes how patterns of information, knowledge, and cultural production are changingand shows that the way information and knowledge are made available can either limit or enlarge the ways people can create and express themselves. Professor Lawrence Lessig of Stanford Law School has written about Yochai Benklers book, The Wealth of Networks. He says, This is by far the most important and powerful book written in the fields that matter most to me in the last ten years. Read it, Professor Lessig says. Understand it. You are not serious about these issues on either side of these debates unless you have read this book.Yochai Benklers lecture was presented on April 18, 2006 at Harvard Law School, hosted by The Berkman Center for Internet & Society.Produced by Colin Rhinesmith.Download the MP3 (time: 41:22)Attribution: Music from this episode of AudioBerkman was sampled and remixed using a track from Antony Raijekov titled Be Brave (Dub-TripHop RMX).

Add this to another station What's Up With Knowledge? (10.94MB; download) -- David Weinberger, Berkman fellow, author, and blogger, talks about some of the ideas he's exploring in a new book he's writing on knowledge. He says, "The comedian Jon Stewart has become a trusted journalist. Wikipedia is in many instances more reliable and up-to-date than traditional encyclopedias. Web sites let social networks put together their own front pages, ignoring the efforts of the highly trained members of newspaper editorial boards. So, what is up with knowledge?""It's by no means the end of days for knowledge," he says, "but it's no longer limited by the physical ways we've had to manage it in the past." Further, he says, as a culture we are hard at work on building an infrastructure of meaning and understanding.Produced by Colin Rhinesmith.Download the MP3 (time: 12:07)Attribution: Music from this edition of AudioBerkman was sampled and remixed by Colin Rhinesmith using the following tracks: pt. 3 (instrumental) Shag's secretby cdk,Remember The Name (inki's essence instrumental) byinki Dream-off by C.Portable.
