Obama en español, Sarkozy en français, and Wikipedia gone polyglot wild

On this week’s podcast, we begin with President Obama’s improving Spanish on display on Univision. Then we take a trip to a language school in Mexico to hear about changes in Spanish-language learning. Then it’s to France, where traditionalists are horrified at President Sarkozy’s gutter talk. Finally a conversation with author and wikipedian Andrew Lih on why foreign language wikipedias are so different from the English version.  For more conversation with Andrew Lih  check out Clark Boy’s technology podcast.  Listen to this podcast in iTunes or here.
