  • first thought when got audioboo // app iphone/android (android version been pullled // features // can also upload via web interface // used a bit then read interview with CEO Mark Rock - mother // easy way of recording audio and archiving it online // decent quality - 128kbps mp3 - not for audiophiles. // does it matter? uni says HQ, pros agree, for my needs mp3 is fine. convenience > high quality // best thing.....

  • can’t automatically process sound as well as text // can’t scrape content from uploaded sound as easily as you can from text [even if you use a CD] // example, upload an audio blog, or audio comment it won’t be as easily indexed in search engine of choice // google doesn’t have ‘sound search’ technology yet. so, why upload sound...\n

  • to refer back to mark rock - memory. we like remembering things, audio is different to picture // back to SHARING EXPERIENCE, // also RECORDING PLACES: archive / historical purpose - imagine what leeds sounded like 10,20,50 years ago // also allows for quick reporting - easier to speak and press upload than frantically type on your smartphone [though sometimes risky? mention trouble I had] // browse audioBoo and you’ll find all sorts - personalities not just sound.// finally, want to talk about potential for surveys...\n
  • idea i had with my friend oli wood / @coldclimate // worked on a script that makes a computer automatically record 60s of audio at a determined time interval // then automatically emails it, along with description and tags to audioBoo // we now want to find somewhere interesting with power + web access to put it // there are examples of people using iPhones as dedicated GPS trackers in their projects - possible to write some basic script for an automatic boo-ing phone // could compare difference in audio over time periods, visually // could also compare sound content - is possible to analyse frequency content, amplitude, etc fairly easily + get numbers // example - edge of city over a year or number of years, border between urban/natural environments. quite exciting, if you know of a place you’d like an automatic boo bot grab me afterwards.\n
