The doctoral students of the Annenberg School for Communication announce the launch of a new podcast, 3620.

3620 is a research podcast that aims to:

1) Use audio to remind us why we do what we do as researchers and scholars,
2) Deepen and enrich our work,
3) Tell interesting stories,
4) Explore digital scholarship.

The podcast is produced each Monday by graduate students and each episode will be between 10 and 20 minutes long. To get a sense of what we're up to, check out our first episode, "Sound Check."

Dear Willard,

One of the major government-funded research programmes in the UK 
recently has been on the Digital Economy. This programme has been 
undertaken by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council on 
behalf of all the research councils in the UK, including the Arts and 
Humanities Research Council. A detailed study has recently been 
published on the impact of the programme, which may be of interest not 
only for the information it provides about the programme but also as a 
discussion of means by which the effectiveness of digital research 
programmes can be assessed:
