"Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all. How do we define this lively darting about with words, of hitting them back and forth, this sort of brief smile of ideas which should be conversation?" ~ Guy de Maupassant ~

I had this delightful conversation with Ethan this evening over Skype, where he interviewed me for a Skypecast at Global Voices. I didn't realise though I talk too close to the mic ... apologies for blasting your ears Ethan!

"We're proud to launch the Global Voices Skypecast series with an interview with ethnographer and blogger Dina Mehta, in Mumbai (or is it Bombay?), India. Dina and I talk about the factors that led her to become a blogger, the Indian version of the "bloggers versus journalists" debate, and her hope that more bloggers will write about economic and technical disparities in India.

You can listen to our conversation here. (mp3, 30 minutes, 17MB.)

We're still learning about the technical details of podcasting using Skype - there are real challenges to getting a "clean" recording from Skype, especially when talking to people in low bandwidth environments. As we continue to post Skypecasts, they'll be filed in our "Podcast" category. If you use an aggregator to subscribe to podcasts, you may want to add this link to your subscription list."
