If you dig ds106 radio, then join us tomorrow, October 2, a group of us are running a telethon to support the effort. While it is free form radio, truth be known that Grant Potter has been paying for the technical infrastructure since it launched in January 2011.
Tomorrow’s event will ask people to either donate whatever they can, be it money or just some things like doing a special show or making some art (damnnit). The point is just to show our appreciation for the community ds106 has become. The point is to show how much you dig it.
Hands down, being part of this group of friends who talk, play, and meet up on the internet radio waves has been the most exciting technology and social thing I have seen in my career. It’s real, folks. It’s been a big part of my personal graph, and visiting people on this trip and turning them on the radio has been a highlight of the journey– as blogged around here at http://cogdogblog.com/tag/ds106radio/
If you can dig it, here’s what you should do tomorrow:
- Tune into ds106radio starting at 10:00am EST tomorrow. We have many things planned, but the best appreciation is being a listener (and tweeting back via the #ds106radio hash tag). You just need to tune into the stream at http://188.8.131.52:8010/live.m3u or see http://bit.ly/radio4life for other ways to tune in- and learn more about ds106radio.
- Let us know how much you dig it. See our telethon contribution form at http://bit.ly/ds106radio-telethon
ds106 radio is more than just talking into the air…
it is a real community
be there tomorrow and show us that you dig it at ds106radio
