MixUp Arabia is back.. sort of. Go ahead.. Accuse me of geekery and “podcasting about podcasting” if you want. That’s exactly what I am doing here! I am testing by brand new iRiver iFP 790. It can record! From a Mic! Even my professional Mic. Cool!

I am hoping to do some mobile podcasts from now on with this device. Expect a MixUp Arabia CarCast soon. Reporting from the streets of Amman!

MixUp Arabia, the Arab world’s first podcast by the way :) , is supposed to be a show about Media, technology and culture in the confusing context of a changing Arab world. So if you have comments and suggestions for the show, please contact me here: ahmad.humeid(at)gmail.com.

Go to the Podcasting category to find the previous episodes.

    Your podcasts have given me an idea. I am a member of a group called “Great Decisions” (greatdecisions.org). We discuss American foreign policy and I would like to add a new dimension to these small group discussions by IP videoconference connections with similar small groups of ordinary citizens of mideastern countries. Direct hookups people-to-people, bypassing politicians and corporate controlled news media. Anyone interested???
