CNI Podcast: Bamboo - Community-Defined Shared Services and Cyberinfrastructure for the Arts & Humanities

This 18 minute podcast features an interview with Chad Kainz, Senior Director of NSIT Academic Technologies at the University of Chicago and David A. Greenbaum, Director of Data Services at the University of California, Berkely. It was recorded at the CNI 2008 Spring Task Force Meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota where they presented a session entitled, "Bamboo - Community-Defined Shared Services and Cyberinfrastructure for the Arts & Humanities".

Bamboo is a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary, and inter-organizational effort to bring together researchers in arts and humanities, computer and information scientists, librarians, and campus information technologists to collectively tackle this question:

How can we enhance arts and humanities research through the development of shared technology services?
