New Applications for Audio Blogging

<p>[l:|Saturday's New York Times] ran an interesting story about alternative museum audio guides released as audio blogs, or podcasts–mp3 files dowloadable from the web. It is really better to think of them as such, than as "podcasts" because generally, I don't see why a user wo uld "subscribe". Rather you would go looking for it before you go to a museum.</p> <p>On the other hand, the Times piece talks about sound seeing, or guided walking tours, these are the true audio blogs. Ellen and I used to talk about doing this kind of thing, walking tours of NYC neighborhoods, then I found something like that at a local gift store.</p> <p>I look forward to finding (and making) some of these audio blogs.</p>
