My editor is breathing down my back (considering it is like 15 degrees this morning in New York City, that may not be a bad thing). No, I am behind on writing my technology column for the Spring 2005 issue of our publication, the mcli Forum . I need some help ;-)
The article will be on the wave in the past few months on internet digital audio, meaning the new tools like Skype (and other audio chat), audio discussion boards, the rise of the iPodPeaple, and podcasting. As an adjunct for the web version where I like to pack more stuff that fits or can even be included in print, I am hoping to have a collection of brief “SKyperviews” or Skype interviews.
If anyone is interested in being on the recorded end for this, there are just 4 questions:
(1) Introduction, who you are, what you do, and where (geographically) you are.
(2) Do you own any kind of portable digital audio device? If so, what kind(s)?
(3) What digital audio content do you listen to or how do you use digital audio communication tools? What places are you doing this?
(4) Thinking beyond your personal use, in what ways can you conjecture how digital audio used over the net can be used for learning?
Okay, its nothing ground breaking, but I thought it would be interesting to post a variety of replies. Please contact me if you are interested. The hitch is that between my current travel and time to make sure I can figure out how to reliably record this I have a pretty narrow window of time to schedule this — It must be either March 14 or 15. Or if you happen to meet up with me in Boston, I may stick my iRiver recorder in your face.
Regardless, if it works out, previews will be blogged here.
