Can Podcasting Save The World?

Not really, no. But in view of the hyped up warnings about the global pandemic that is Swine Flu, one newspaper [Norwich Evening News] seems to think that the University of East Anglia has emergency plans to utilise the medium of podcasting in helping curb campus infection rates...
"Contingency plans to slow the spread of the virus, or to cope if the illness cripples staffing levels, include postponing freshers' week, podcasting lectures and quarantining infected students in their halls of residence."
Now, we here at LittleSmasher have been to the odd University or two in our time and we've concluded that without lectures to attend there'd, surely, be more scope for other more interesting interactions for the students to enjoy.


An excellent use of podcasting though, for university lectures of course. Excellent.
