Short and simple tutorial that shows how to quickly convert one audio file type to another, using Switch, a free software utility from NCH Software. This works on Mac and Windows -- Switch is basically identical on both. So if you have an Olympus digital audio recorder, for example, you can convert your files this way and then edit them in Audacity.

I've been working through Zed Shaw's "Learn Python the Hard Way," and I made a video about Lesson 16, because it writes into a file, and I thought some students might find that difficult to follow if they are complete beginners. http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ex16.html NOTE: This video doesn't explain the whole lesson! For that, go to the URL above. For my notes about learning Python "the hard way," see: http://babydatajournalism.tumblr.com/tagged/Zed-Shaw .

To fulfill course reqs for this project, I had to make a video about it. First time I used jsonify. First time I used SQLAlchemy alone (not Flask-SQLAlchemy). First time I used Flask-Session. I learned more about Flask by managing users and sessions in this project. Also, it's the first time I've used Python to read/write a SQL table with two foreign keys. The code is not public. Started project: Jan. 14. Wrote all code from scratch (excluding Bootstrap components, which are the navbar and the sticky footer). A CSV of 5,000 books was provided by CS50w. This is the 2nd project of 5 in a 12-week course. Finished project: Jan. 19.

I interviewed Rob at the Online News Association conference in the hotel corridor (sorry about the noise!) using my Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot camera. This was edited wholly in iMovie 09. I asked him to give advice to journalism educators in Africa -- what should they know to help their students today?
