Contributed by Doug Turnbull on 09/03/2013
MegsRadio is a new ad-free, non-profit, personalized Internet radio system that is currently being developed at Ithaca College. A prototype can be found at:
Our primary goal is to promote the work of local Ithaca-area artists by contextualizing their music with songs by more well-known artists.
Our second goal is provide users with an amazing music listening experience. This is done by giving our users more control over their stream of music through novel interactive design features. We also utilize the data that we collect from our users as feedback for our intelligent playlist algorithms.

Please join me on Thursday, September 12th for the first Faculty Colloquium of the academic year. James Pfrehm, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, will be presenting Technolingualism: Language and Technology in Dialogue…….“Since the early day of our species, technology and language have evolved in parallel. Innovations in tool making were a catalyst for more complex, systematic means of communication. Similarly, these physical innovations—in addition to other sophisticated cultural practices—presuppose complex, systematic means of communication. Regardless of which came first—the ‘cognitive technology’ of language or the physical technologies of culture—this was the beginning of “technolingualism,” the ‘inter-language’ that emerges out of the timeless dialogue between language and technology.”
