Ars Technica: YouTube kicks off podcast strategy with new landing page. “YouTube’s podcast push started with a new ‘Podcasts’ page. The website will 404 for some people, but for others, they’ll see a landing page highlighting podcast content.”

WIRED: The Best Podcasts for Kids. “These are our top podcasts for kids. If you’re a podcast listener yourself, you might be thinking that spoken audio will never entertain your kids.

Elon University: New book by Amanda Sturgill examines anonymous #AltGov social media movement. “The associate professor of journalism wrote ‘We Are #ALTGOV: Social Media Resistance from the Inside,’ highlighting how and why the #AltGov Twitter movement challenged official governmental statements to inform the American public.”

Tricycle: Landed, a New Social Media App Based on Gratitude, Fosters Personal Connection. “Landed connects users one-on-one via a specific and limited course of action: sending audio messages back and forth…. Users are also given the option to share a challenging experience. They log in on Sunday and have until Monday at 8 p.m. in their local time zone to submit their message. On Tuesday, they’ll receive an audio message from their randomly assigned match for the week. After that, the matched pair can act like digital penpals, sending voice messages back and forth for the rest of the week, if they choose. On Sunday, all records of the conversation disappear.”

The answer likely lies in how this bill evolves and builds on the model implemented in Australia, and the fact that other countries around the world are watching this evolution and developing their own similar laws. The Canadian code probably won’t have a material financial impact on these platforms, but countries learning from each other, improving on the model, and it spreading globally very could. So what does the Online News Act do, what does it get right and wrong, and should it be passed, scrapped or improved?”
