Podcast about the Web History Repository

The word is spreading - several researchers already approached us for the Web History Repository (don't be shy, ask for it, if you plan to use it).

The repository also attracted the attention of my colleagues from the Stellar NoE on technology-enhanced learning. Browser history tools are important for personal information management (the way people acquire, organize, maintain, retrieve and use information items). And personal information management on its turn becomes more and more important for learning - which typically involves searching and using various Web resources - including discussion forums and social networking sites.

I had a very pleasant chat with Erik Duval. Apart from the project itself, we talked about the relation between learning and personal information management, strategies to attract volunteers using social networks, privacy issues to take care of, and the datatel initiative.

Here is the link to the Podcast.
