Podcast about blogging and "podslurping"

Go Digital, a weekly BBC World Service programme that looks at how technology is changing our lives, has a podcast available called - Your digital world. This week's programme speaks to the founder of a French blog site Agoravox ("features stories from hundreds of citizen reporters who efficiently provide local news and analyse events with clever and original angles"), reviews new and exciting computer interfaces and investigates "podslurping" - using mobile gadgets to steal company secrets.

A second article that caught my eye towards the end of last week is a follow up to the controversy over Wikipedia that I mentioned in a previous posting. The article Wikipedia survives research test (BBC News: Technology) suggests the free online resource is about as accurate on science as the Encyclopedia Britannica.
