Before Harald left on his trek last week, he asked me to update his blog with two important items of information.
First, Harald is making a daily audio journal, which will be featured on this blog. Each night, he is calling from his satellite phone a service – blogtalkradio.com – that records his message and turns it into an audio file. I’ll feature that podcast here daily, along with a map so everyone can listen and see where he is during his trek.
Second, before he left, Harald also asked a few colleagues in business and research to submit their own essays and thoughts on the connection between business, climate and polar research. I’ll be periodically featuring some of the thoughts from those individuals here until Harald returns, in early May.
I hope people will check in to listen to his daily audio journal. And if you are interested, leave a comment with a question for Harald. I can send him an SMS text message each day and he’ll answer your questions in the following day’s audio journal.
And, true to Harald’s mission here, I hope it will raise awareness of polar research and create connections between research and business.
