LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast - Episode #71. "This week's episode is varied as to topics. First up is an interview with Jono Bacon, community manager for Ubuntu. Bacon talked to us about his upcoming Community Leadership Summit where librarians would be welcome as librarians. Also discussed was the nature of the Ubuntu release parties and how they help hold a community together. After the chat with Bacon, a reading of the proposed Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act is presented. A brief round-up of comment out there on the bill currently in the United States House of Representatives is also raised. Following that further coverage of censorship in Fiji is presented through the relay of reports by Radio New Zealand International. Fiji was a Westminster-style parliamentary democracy within the Commonwealth of Nations prior to the military coup in December 2006.". Previous Podcasts can be found here
