Web 2.0 Coolness

For those of you that follow Robert Scoble's Blog at all, or even those that don't, he just participated in a cool podcast by the start-up company Waxxi that shows just how education can be enhanced by horizontal production enhancements online.

Scoble and Shel Israel, co-authors of the book Naked Conversations, talked online with companies and bloggers about the importance of blogging in the changing markets.

The podcast itself was amazing from the standpoint that it was the first interactive podcast (to my knowledge) between audience members and the promoters/speakers.

This is amazing, since it basically opens up e-conferencing to the public, leaving the possibility to for schools to set up groups that invite speakers to interactive speeches.

The possibilities for this technology are way cool, as Frank Gruber blogged about today.

Scoble is right; blogging is changing the face of politics, education, business, and society as a whole.
