Audio on the web
Audio on the web is interesting. People like to know more about it. What motivated to go to audio? There was a huge conversation going on 2003. It was the next natural step, not to replace text but to add content.
We have lived in a world where TV, radio and Newspapers delivered the content. That is going to change.
- Text blog
- Video will come down the road
How should people use the audioblogs? How should it be indexed? Audio can’t stand alone. After you do the recording you add information about the audio. A description about what the audio is talking about is a necessity.
- Create a play list
- Syndicated feed
- Flash has a high presence in the browser space
- Flash or MP3

The syndication thing is still evolving. This is going to be changing. We don’t know what will be here tomorrow. Some people are fantastic writers. Some education has to be done. Putting everything in a perspective is an important part of the recording. People can also respond with audio.
Broadband will lead to more video on the web.
