Dan Rather Live on Skype!

Former CNN anchor and teacher at ASU Aaron Brown inteviewed legendary CBS anchor Dan Rather today at the Cronkite School.  That was cool in itself, but I was assuming some sort of live-via-satelite thing was going to happen, but I was way wrong.  Nope, they simply connected through Skype, a video/phone kinda chat program online.  Pretty amazing I think.  My how technology has changed.  

Rather spoke about a lot of interesting things, the war, how the media covers the war and things like that.  More on that later, I gotta go to class!

  1. I’m with Skype’s PR team and noticed your post. Very cool. It’s news to us that Dan Rather did a Skype call, but even more interesting that ASU’s Journalism program is using Skype to bring in interesting speakers to its classroom. Thanks for the blog post about it.
