Slave Tool - VoiceIndigo

Debi a.k.a. Mobile Jones interviews Peter K. Lee, CTO of VoiceIndigo about their service which provides the delivery of audio podcasts to mobile phones. VoiceIndigo also includes Podsense which connects advertisers to podcasts, and implements click-to-call revenue sharing and click-to-call connections to podcast feedback lines.

Nicole has been very busy lately helping to organize Podcastday 2006 in Cologne, Germany. It seems that one of the problems Peter and I discussed on simplifying listener interaction was discussed by a panel at the conference. If you are mobile when you listen, why would the answer be more PC browser tools? If podcasts work because they are time shifted why would real time call participation (Skypecast) be the answer? Think mobile! ...especially when the activity is mobile.

Media Slaves uses Voiceindigo and if our listeners have any feedback or experience to share it would be greatly appreciated.

Death of a Vlogger, and Online Trust

Slave Tools - Techonrati, You're Hurting Us

The Gillmor Gang's recent show from the Syndicate conference featured Amanda Congdon of Rocketboom, and Amanda stated that she uses Technorati "search by authority" to identify experts. This was an alarming statement, because the link-based search used by Technorati indicates popularity - not authority. Confusion on this point is something Media Slaves would to like help correct.

NOTE: We requested an audio clip from Steve Gillmor via the comments on his site, but our request was ignored.

Popularity promoted as authority or expertise is a disservice to the reader, as well as, for the publishers who are true experts but not winning the popularity contest.

What's an expert in Social Media, Part I

Social Media is a young area with early adopter uptake. So what does it mean to be an expert podcaster, an expert in blogging, or any of the other domains of peer production? In Part I, we discuss distinctions between critics and "doers," the importance of participation and people may be dying from eating Oreo cookies. Stay tuned for Part Deux.

Slave Tools

Slave Tools will consist of discussion on the productivity and media creation tools that are used by Media Slaves. We've devised a simple rating system. Tools that we like, use or recommend will be designated as "Is a Slave Tool." Those which don't measure up or we find annoying will be designated "Is not a Slave Tool." Pretty simple.
