Baylor University's Future Perfect Workshop

 I’m headed to Baylor University in Waco Texas on January 17, to attend FUTURE PERFECT: Retooling Oral History in the Digital Age. Hosted by the BU Institute for Oral History, this one-day workshop will help me and the other Yore Town creators learn about

• recording techniques
• transcribing digital recordings
• editing digital audio/video recordings
• digitizing analog tapes
• creating and managing metadata
• making collections accessible online
• managing workflow for digital collections
• designing and publishing digital documentaries and Web sites

Presenters include Stephen Sloan, Director of Baylor’s Institute of Oral History and Dan Cohen, Director of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Cohen is also co-editor of Digital History: a Guide to Gathering, Preserving and Presenting The Past on The Web.
