CTCnet Con 2005 Phil Shapiro

Here is a podcast with Phil Shapiro who shares with us the cool logic puzzles called SokoMind. This is freeware software available for the PC, Mac, and Linux. “The object of the puzzle is to push around the heavy boxes, one at a time, to the storage areas. You cannot pull the boxes, and if you push a box into a corner, you won’t be able to retrieve it later.” These cool games can help develop a love of problem solving. Learn math style thinking visually! Let’s let Phil explain this cool edu game. 🙂

Interview with Lou Plummer

This podcast is a fantastic interview with Lou Plummer from Fayetteville, NC. He’s a former North Carolina National Guardsman and ex-state prison guard. He’s working hard with Military Families Speak Out and Bring Them Home Now to end the war in Iraq and get our soldiers home. We discussed a lot of stuff but our focus was the March 19, 2005 rally and march in Fayetteville, NC. We also touched on the effect of the war in Iraq on the people of North Carolina, the difficulty for members of the US Military and their families to oppose the war in Iraq, and how the main stream media covers events like these. Lou has a great message for those who agree and disagree with the cause to end the war. I would like to personally encourage everyone to attend this event wether or not you live in North Carolina. This movement and event is truly one of the most peaceful and positive methods of ending needless death and suffering all over the world! I was touched and inspired by our talk. I hope you are too.

SlapCast.com and activism – Send Podcast audio to Politicians

This Podcast is a mp3 I made by calling a phone number, uploading the mp3 to my webserver, and stuffing it in my RSS 2.0 podcast feed. I wonder out loud what activists could do with a podcast by phone service that’s even simpler than I used it. Instead of emailing our congressperson or president we could send them URLs to our individual oral thoughts as soon as we have them. Imagine the large chorus of voices descending upon a politician in real time. The human voice can emotionally effect even the hardest of cynics!
