Announcements about Voice Channel
Two announcements about Voice Channel this morning.
Little background: Voice channel is a micro-content weblog embedded application I'm developing and presently is "under construction" on the left column of this weblog page.
Because it is "under initial construction and development" it may be a little hard to understand at the moment exactly what it is. For now simply think of it as "voice mail to the world - the view through the World Wide Web", a voice conversation right in your weblog.
I'll be collaborating with Kendal the creator of FreedomAudio to tie his project and product into Voice Channel. Plans are to make the connection using the AudioBlogging Gateway and of course use Open interfaces to do it.
Back on May 3 I mentioned:
From what I read at the FreedomAudio site, I see FreedomAudio as a networked audio recorder and player that could be interfaced to the AudioBlogging Gateway.
Since it is already talking HTTP POST, it looks like it would not be that hard to create an "open client audioblogging interface" around it."
To accomplish and build the communications between FreedomAudio to AudioBlogging Gateway, there is a need for a new Open Interface. FreedomAudio presently supports POST which makes it the obvious protocol of choice for the interface.
The interface will combine a minimal list of weblogging, audioblogging, moblogging and media attributes. The main design goal is simplicity and device independance.
I will be posting a RFC soon about the interface on this weblog defining the POST interface and it's initial attributes. If you have an interest in combining multi-media, moblogs with blogs please make sure your part on this conversation. Your input is important!
