Podcast of my SBL Paper Presentation

Chris Brady (Targum Man) has kindly posted a podcast of my SBL paper presentation, "Weblogs and the Academy: The Benefits and Challenges of Biblioblogging" over at his site. You can also find the text of the paper here. Podcasts of the other presentations made at the blogger session are also going up on his blog. So far, audio recordings of the papers presented by Jim Davila and Chris Brady have been made available. To read the texts of the papers--which have been posted by each of the presenters on their sites--just click on the hyperlinks which Chris has helpfully added.

I love the way bibliobloggers have utilized the web to promote the biblioblog session. The texts of papers are not only available on the various presenters' weblogs, but now, thanks to Chris, it is also possible to hear audio (podcasts) of the actual presentations. This is great!

Perhaps this will signal a new era for the SBL. Up until now, scholars have been forced to miss out on interesting papers because so many are presented during the same time slot. However, maybe in the future that will no longer be a problem. Papers / podcasts can be posted on-line after the fact, making them available to everyone! Here's to hoping!
