As D’Arcy Norman noted, mobile broadcasting audio is adding an quality to online social presence that lots of folks are having a blast exploring and experimenting with in #ds106:
- @noiseprofessor broadcasting live from Deerhoof deerhoof
- reports from the field from Rowan Peter field
- laughter and play of children kids
Lots of interesting things are growing out of this sonic experiment .. like the twitterbot notification from @galagonwagon. If you put your TwitterID in the Stream Name (pictured above) the #ds106radio twitterbot will send you a notification on your mobile to let you know that you are live. No guessing if you are on the air – twitterbot tells you.
A bunch of folks have been playing with Papaya Broadcaster broadcasting to #ds106radio – it works very well as a mobile, roving mic. It isn’t free ($2.99), but I have yet to find a mobile application that does the same thing. If you have found one – let me know by leaving a comment with a link below. If you want to give Papaya a run with iTouch or iPhone drop me a DM @grantpotter – I’ll help you get your voice on the air.
