New PARcast Available: The Cost of Owning Technology podcast with Ken Hamma

 
Ken Hamma, Executive Director for Digital Policy and Initiatives at the J. Paul Getty Trust, talks with Gunter Waibel about how owning technology requires significant ongoing investment, but various options exist that can bring down costs and lead to a more collaborative future.

Our podcasts are recorded impromptu interviews in which we ask the question, "What's keeping you awake at night?" of people we come across in our travels who are thinking ahead, worrying about big issues or imagining the next big thing.

This is the sixth podcast in our continuing series.

PARcasts are available on our Web site and now also in the iTunes Store.
