iTunes U and the opposite Podcast

I have been listening to lots and lots of podcasts on iTunes. Most of them pure crap – but some very worthwhile material is available.

Head and shoulders above the pack for my taste are three files I found on iTunes U featuring Author Thomas L. Friedman. First if you have not purchased the book “The World Is Flat” you are really missing the picture of how and why the world is transforming into a global economy. Do a power search for Friedman and you’ll find those files and a great talk about his new book, Green is the new Red White and Blue. This is Very worthwhile material.

Big Seminar Live Podcast is DOA
O.K. –I know this is a brutal review – but I believe it is accurate. This is not even thinly veiled as an infomercial for what promoter Armand Morin calls the “Big Seminar”. Oh wait there’s more… from the promoter’s web site, “The Big Seminar promises New 2008 Strategies and An Incredible 3 Days Filled With Jaw-Dropping Income Boosting Information Which Can and Will Skyrocket Your Business to the Next Level.” It sure sounds like a get rich scheme to me. You can skip this one.
