Quick Update from Bill

Feb 9, 2006 by Bill

Just a quick message to let people know I’m still here and to let you know I did some site maintenance work that may have caused feeds to update in an unusual fashion if your “podcatcher” reads the old files as new after the rebuild of our site. Also of interest is the finally released online audio recording tools over at Odeo.com. Pretty slick.

Rwanda Ten Years Later - Student Conflict Briefing

Dec 8, 2005 by Student

This podcast is a conflict theory brief created for our Roots of Social Conflict class at Wayne State University, Master of Arts in Dispute Resolution Program. We will be examining several social conflict theories and their applications to the Rwanda Genocide Case.

For our group conflict brief we discuss various conflict theorists like Dahrendorf, Homans, Homer-Dixon, Pruitt & Rubin, Kriesberg and Dollard. Our Rwanda Project will give you a better insight into how conflict is formed, escalated, and carried-out by individuals, groups, organization’s and states. We demonstrate how the theorist’s conflict theories can be applied to the past and present conflict. Last, we recommend sound conflict resolution strategies that we have learned in our case study of Rwanda Ten Years Later.

Men Working with Men to End Violence Against Women

Nov 16, 2005 by Bill

This podcast was done at the recent Roots to Wings Battering Intervention conference held in Dearborn Michigan in early November. I interview John Beams and Bob Paskoff about their early days working with men to end violence against women. Unfortunately, I lost the second half of John Beams story due to a mic problem, so his comments are just a taste of the good ideas he shared.

Fun File - Mock Interview with President Bush

Oct 11, 2005 by Bill

This one-minute audio file of a mock interview of President Bush was made using a new web-based service called Podomatic.com. Using a nifty Flash and an AJAX-type interface, you can create audio files by mixing together various clips. To encourage people to test the service, you can make an interview of yourself talking with Bush and then email to friends and colleagues. The built-in mic on the machine I made it on wasn’t great, but for an experiment it should be okay…
